The Pyramid of the 5th dynasty king Unas (2375-2345 BCE), Saqqara, near Cairo in Egypt.
Discovered in this pyramid is our earliest evidence of pyramid texts, possibly the oldest known religious texts in the world.
The following is a translated segment from the pyramid texts of this pyramid, ‘Utterance 304’, Antechamber, North Wall:

The king climbs to the sky on a ladder
Hail, daughter of Anubis, above the hatches of heaven,
Comrade of Thoth, above the ladder’s rails,
Open Unas’s path, let Unas pass!
Hail, Ostrich on the Winding Water’s shore,
Open Unas’s path, let Unas pass!
Hail, four-horned Bull of Re,
Your horn in the west, your horn in the east,
Your southern horn, your northern horn:
Bend your western horn for Unas, let Unas pass!
"Are you a pure westerner?" [The bull questions the king]
"I come from Hawk City." [Perhaps the royal residence is meant]
Hail Field of Offerings,
Hail to the herbs within you!
"Welcome is the pure to me!" [The Field’s reply to the king’s greeting]

Petroglyphs at the Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada, USA.

This rock art was left by the Ancient Pueblo Peoples, also known as the Anasazi, who were farmers from the nearby fertile Moapa Valley. The Anasazi visits to the Valley of Fire likely involved food gathering, hunting, and religious ceremonies, although their stays would have been limited by the scarcity of water. Their occupation approximately dates from 300 BC to 1150 AD.
