Possible Egyptian pyramids found using Google Earth
Archaeology News Network ^ | Monday, August 6, 2012 | Posted by TANN

Posted on 08/10/2012 3:40:45 PM PDT by SunkenCiv

One of the complex sites contains a distinct, four-sided, truncated, pyramidal shape that is approximately 140 feet in width. This site contains three smaller mounds in a very clear formation, similar to the diagonal alignment of the Giza Plateau pyramids.

The second possible site contains four mounds with a larger, triangular-shaped plateau. The two larger mounds at this site are approximately 250 feet in width, with two smaller mounds approximately 100 feet in width. This site complex is arranged in a very clear formation with the large plateau, or butte, nearby in a triangular shape with a width of approximately 600 feet.

The sites have been documented and discovered by satellite archaeology researcher Angela Micol of Maiden, North Carolina. Angela has been conducting satellite archaeology research for over ten years, searching for ancient sites from space using Google Earth. Angela is a UNC Charlotte alumnus and has studied archaeology since childhood. Google Earth has allowed her to document many possible archaeological sites, including a potential underwater city off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula that has sparked the interest of scientists, researchers and archaeologists. Angela is also a board member of the APEX Institute, founded by archaeologist William Donato, who is pioneering underwater archaeological research in the Bahamas. Angela has been assisted by Don J. Long, fellow APEX researcher and colleague.

The sites have been verified as undiscovered by Egyptologist and pyramid expert Nabil Selim. Nabil's discoveries include the pyramid called Sinki at Abydos and the Dry Moat surrounding the Step pyramid Complex at Saqqara. Nabil has stated the smaller 100 foot "mounds", at one of the proposed complex sites, are a similar size as the 13th Dynasty Egyptian pyramids, if a square base can be discovered.

Looks like this stuff is on the way to Enterprise Mission. :') The suggestion of resemblance to the 13th dynasty structures (Middle Kingdom-era, the stuff built by the Israelites; also of that era is the Canal of Joseph, which ran Nile water out to the construction area) resonated with me. More interesting though (to me) were her finds of submerged pairs of straight lines (off Cornwall, off Bahamas, etc).
The image below is approximately 620 feet wide. For comparison purposes the Great Pyramid is 208 feet in width. This mound feature is almost 3 times the size of the Great Pyramid. Upon closer examination of the formation, it appears to have a very flat top and a curiously symmetrical triangular shape that has been heavily eroded with time.

This mound is approximately 150 feet wide and has a distinct square center which is very unusual for a mound of this size and it almost seems pyramidal when seen from above... Enhanced Image reveals 4 distinct sides and a truncated top.

I'll go (not very far) out on a limb here and state that the one on the left is entirely natural; the one on the right is probably natural, but could be either wholly or partially artificial.

To all -- please ping me to other topics which are appropriate for the GGG list.

Is that anywhere near South Florida? You know, the Geezer Plateau?

It stands to reason the aliens would have had an auxiliary landing strip in the area....

Well, that’s one reasonable use of google earth.

They just look like eroded mountains in the desert to me. The United States is filled with them from the Rocky mountains to the Sierras. From a commercial flight, almost everything in that region looks like this.

We went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC last weekend and saw a wonderful exhibit Early Egyptian art from the pre-dynastic period (before the Pyramids) 4000 BC to the period of the Pharaohs.
What has already unearthed is most likely a small fraction of what remains to be discovered.

Link?

There are only a few comments at the linked article, but they dispute her suppositions.

The fairly tiny Egyptian collection at the local museum is a never-miss for me when I’m there; there’s Nile siltware from circa 3500-4000 BC, basically intact. As you said, a tiny fraction is known of whatever fraction still exists.

I wholeheartedly agree. Worth checking of course, just in case, but look natural — and looking at their estimated size, they could hardly be artificial.

OTOH, there are much larger structures from ancient Egypt; there’s a well-preserved mudbrick temple from early Egypt that has a wall something like 3/4 of a mile long.

Using google.earth to do the searches is both intoxicating and difficult.

My mission is to identify every last single Spanish or Portuguese settlement ~ occupied enough so the roadways/paths were still visible when English and American settlers moved in a couple of centuries later ~ in the area bounded by the Arctic Ocean, the Rockey Mountains, the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.

I"ve found their grand survey of the continent ~ reflected in the Treaty of London (1604) ~ and had verification that some of the Bench Marks are actually identified as "Boundary Markers".

So far I've searched from 45 degrees North to 35 degrees North from the Mississippi to the Atlantic.

Found several structures ~ and best of all, at least one Villa La Real (A Spanish administrative center), a couple of mills (long in the dirt but visible in part), but there are only a few dozen villages/plantations.

I know most historians imagine these things are all over the place and the French put them there, but the French hardly had enough settlers to keep Quebec busy to say nothing of moving in on Indian territories.

The Spanish were different. They'd move in on you with priests from 10 different orders and have your women hitched to a plough before you could say ouch. They had a proven technique for aiding populations to grow and become strong ~ particularly militarily strong, and in the good old days, if you weren't militarily strong you turned into dirt pretty quick.

I really don't know what happened to the French but even in fur trading they demanded the position as middle man ~ unlike the English who let the Iroquois do the hard work of transporting the furs to market. The Spanish actually tried to build a local agrarian society first ~ then the mines!

In 1952 I was riding in a B-25 across the High Plains somewhere around the Texas-New Mexico border when I spotted this large fish-shaped pattern on the ground, outlined in black and having a couple of circles with straight black lines about the quarter points. I had recently read a National Geographic article about some similar prehistoric marks somewhere in the Southwest. I got excited, believing it was authentic Native American, and started to point out my “discovery” to the two fellow passengers sharing the waist seats on the deck of the old B-25. One of the guys, a WW2 Air Force veteran, said “Why, that’s just an old battleship target!”

Yeah, from geologists. Who have never ever made any mistakes. Do I need to point out the one here who did ?

Well, if these do turn out to be ancient artificial structures, the geologists have made a whole bunch of mistakes. Just pointing out that possibility myself.
