Photos: Sudan’s Ancient Pyramids Discovered

This aerial photo shows a series of pyramids and graves that a team of archaeologists has been exploring at Sedeinga in Sudan. Since 2009 they have discovered at least 35 small pyramids at the site, the largest being 22 feet (7 meters) in width. Although the tops are not attached, the base of the pyramids can be seen. The pyramids date back around 2,000 years.

I love to read about historical artifacts and sites, especially when they give us clues about the old civilisations.

Some ancient pyramids were discovered at a site called Sedeinga in Sudan.

They were about 2,000 years old.

They were built aroung the time when a kingdom named Kush flourished in Sudan.

Kush shared a border with Egypt and, later on, the Roman Empire.
