A groundbreaking discovery has been made by an American archaeologist who spotted what looks like two new pyramid sites in Egypt, with one site viewed on satellite being three times the size of Great Pyramid at Giza.
Angela Micol is based in North Carolina and has spent ten years scrutinizing Google Earth, hunting for ancient sites from space.
She has come across two areas containing unusual shaped mounds along the Nile basin. One of them reportedly features a triangular plateau possibly the largest ever revealed.
thanks nikki heard this on radio and forgot already
, going to look more in to this-pretty cool if true
James, I got all excited at first because I thought Curiosity had found pyramids on Mars, lol.
But it's still a big deal finding them in Egypt. Some of the pyramids were buried in sand and only recently discovered so there's probably many more still buried.
