Memphis was also the place where lived the Pharaohs and the capital of Egypt in the early dynastic period and the Old Kingdom. The classical sources and archaeological study show that Memphis was one of the most important administrative centers throughout Egypt.
Saqqara was a burial site during the Old Kingdom, which is why the whole area is a veritable necropolis of pyramids, tombs, and mastabas. The highlight is the Step Pyramid of King Djoser of the Third Dynasty of Egypt.
