Pyramids Nubian Desert, Sudan

From series “Top Survived Pyramids from Previous Civilizations”
The lifeless Nubian desert is a site of unique sights. The modern scientists have found that many more pyramids were built in Sudan than in Egypt a thousand years ago. The African deserts are the world's top rider after the number of the pyramid. Many, of the pyramids of Sudan, which are located on the banks of the Nile, are now partially or completely shed from the sand, so there is no way to start the research.

Pyramids Nubian Desert, Sudan Recently, many archaeologists have been interested in the pyramids located on the territory of the Nubian Desert. Altogether, more than 220 pyramids were discovered in the desert, twice as much as in Egypt. The Italian Juiseppe Ferlini was one of the first Europeans to 'examine' the Nubian pyramids. He has robbed more than forty pyramids. He discovered the most precious treasures in the tomb of Queen Amanishacheto. Without success he tried to sell the gold rings, necklaces and amulets. The potential buyers have not believed in the true history of their origin.

Today, almost all the royal treasures under investigation are completely empty. It can not be ruled out that they were still extinct many centuries ago. The pyramids that tourists can see in the desert of Sudan are relatively small. The pyramid complex Meroe is one of the largest among them. It is situated next to the city of the same name and consists of rather small pyramids, whose height is only a few meters, as well as quite impressive 'copies'. The large necropolis of 17 pyramids is located in the surroundings of the city of Napata. The road to the city is a tough test even today. Next - Greek Pyramid
