The Discovery of the Pyramid via Google Earth

Now archaeologists do not have to go into the field to conduct scientific exploration. Simply by using the Google Earth application, Angela Micol, an archaeologist from the United States, found two new sites of the Egyptian pyramids.

Micol hunting pyramids in Egypt from computer screens at her home in North Carolina, 5,000 kilometers from Egypt. To find the ancient buildings, she studied satellite imagery via Google Earth website. The results were quite surprising. “One of the pyramid site size three times larger than the great pyramid at Giza,” says Micol, Tuesday (14 August 2012). The site was in the form of a triangular plateau with an area of ​​207 square meters.
One of the complex sites contains a distinct, four-sided, truncated, pyramidal shape that is approximately 42.67 meters in width. (Picture from:
Micol added, “It has a distinct square centre, which is very unusual for a mound of this size and it almost seems pyramidal when seen from above.”
This site contains three smaller mounds in a very clear formation, similar to the diagonal alignment of the Giza Plateau pyramids. (Picture from:
There are also three smaller mounds “similar to the diagonal alignment of the Giza Plateau pyramids.”

It took 10 years for Micol to tamper with satellite imagery in Google Earth. She pointed two areas along the Nile valley as far as 135 kilometers apart. Both seem to be a huge mounds and unusual shape.

She said, “Upon closer examination of the formation, this mound appears to have a very flat top and a curiously symmetrical triangular shape that has been heavily eroded with time. “The images speak for themselves. It's very obvious what the sites may contain.”

“But field research is needed to verify they are, in fact, pyramids.”

All the known pyramids were constructed around Cairo but the latest sites are much further south.

The first area sits alongside the Nile in Upper Egypt, 19.31 kilometers from the city of Abu Sidhum, while the second, 144.84 kilometers north, contains a 42.67 meters wide, four-sided shape. Micol plans to fly to Egypt and visited two sites these findings.

Micol has used Google Earth before to discover a potential underwater city off the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico.

American Egyptologist Dr Sarah Parcak also identified 17 lost pyramids thanks to Google Earth in May last year. *** [DAILY MAIL | THE SUN | MAHARDIKA SATRIA HADI | KORAN TEMPO 3971]
