Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Egyptian and French archaeologists in the Nile Delta have excavated the oldest village that has been found in the area so far. The excavations were at Tell El-Samara, about 140 kilometers north of the capital Cairo.

At the settlement objects were found from the Neolithic period …

Those objects were made between 4200 and 2900 years B.C.

This source says even 5,000 B.C.

That is before the time of the pharaohs

In the Nile Delta, settlements from that era had never been found before. …

In the village, storage sites have been found with animal bones, ceramics and remains of food and plants. According to archaeologists, they can be used to investigate how people lived then.
