File: The 6th season of the excavations of Egyptian archaeological mission in Saqqara kicks off.
The Egyptian archaeological mission resumed the work of its sixth excavation season in the Saqqara antiquities area on Saturday which resulted in the discovery of a group of pottery vessels bearing inscriptions in the ancient Egyptian language in the form of demotic lines.
Within these vessels were found a group of molds of white cheese, which most likely date back to the late period in the time period of the 26th and 27th dynasties.
The ancient Egyptian white cheese named "Haram", which changed during the Coptic times to the word "Halloum" and is now known as "Halloum cheese".
