Have Mankind's 'Greatest Pyramids' Been Pinpointed?
Newser ^ | July 17, 2013 | Ruth Brown

An amateur archaeologist in North Carolina made headlines last year when she claimed to have uncovered long-lost pyramids in Egypt via Google Earth. Real archaeologists have been a bit more skeptical. But Angela Micol says new discoveries help prove her findings, reports Discovery News. Another amateur archaeologist recently did a ground study at one of the two sites she spotted, and claims what he saw there—pottery, shells, and signs of cavities and tunnels below the the surface—support Micol's claims. "Those mounds are definitely hiding an ancient site below them," he says.

Additionally, an Egyptian couple who are leading collectors of old maps and rare documents say they have 34 maps and 12 documents in their collection that indicate the areas of Micol's findings are pyramid sites. The couple says their documents suggest two unknown pyramids at one of the sites, Fayum, were intentionally buried. "They would be the greatest pyramids known to mankind," says the couple. "We would not exaggerate if we said the finding can overshadow the Pyramids of Giza." But real archaeologists remain uninterested in Micol's research, so she has set up a crowd-funding campaign to raise $50,000 to explore the site further with a ground penetrating radar and infrared satellite imagery. "It's very obvious what the sites may contain," says Micol, "but field research is needed to verify they are, in fact, pyramids."

Building a great pyramid? Very hard.
Intentionally burying a great pyramid? Perhaps even harder.

So we’re talking about a literal pyramid scheme, right?

But if Goblekli Tepe is any indication, not impossible.

You shoulda seen the headlines an amateur proctologist in New Jersey made last year.

Not really. They put a lot of work into chipping out Hatshepsut’s name and concealing one of her oblisks.

We talking real fanatics here.

Eh just recently they found the lost 4th pyramid at Giza so I guess this is not out of the question.

Burying a 400 foot tall pyramid would make a pretty big hill.
