WASHINGTON: An archaeologist claimed to have discovered two new possible pyramid complexes in Egypt with a large mound almost three times the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Archaeology researcher Angela Micol from Maiden, North Carolina has been conducting satellite archaeology research for over 10 years, searching for ancient sites from space using Google earth satellite imagery programme and she found two pyramid complexes in Egypt.
The sites have been verified as ‘undiscovered’ by Egyptologist and pyramid expert Nabil Selim, the Discovery News reported.
“Located about 144 kilometres apart, the sites contain unusual grouping of mounds with intriguing features and orientations,” Angela Micol said. One site in Upper Egypt, just 19 kilometres from the city of Abu Sidhum along the Nile, features four mounds each with a larger, triangular-shaped plateau. The two larger mounds at this site are approximately 76.2 metres in width, with two smaller mounds approximately 30.48 metres in width.
