Oldest Egyptian Remains Ever Found Surface In the Delta

"Archeologists including members of a French team, have unearthed the oldest human remains dating back to 3,800 BC (around 6,000 years old), in the Delta.
The find was made at Kom Al Khilgan in Mansura where the complete male skeleton relates to a 6,00-year period preceding the first Pharaonic dynasties.
Director of Upper Egypt Antiquities Dr Mohamed Abdul Maqsoud said that the site of the find includes antiquities from the Predynastic civilization of Naqada, which later formed the cultural base for ancient Egyptian civilization. "

I wonder if this means the proponents of the western desert theory need to rethink their suggestion of Egyptian origins?
