Group of 2,000-year-old pyramids discovered in Sudan2/7/2013
A group of 35 small and medium-sized pyramids believed to be built by the Kush Kingdom, which flourished 2000 years ago, have been discovered in Sudan. The pyramids, discovered over the course of field seasons from 2009 to 2012, are all contained within one necropolis. The largest pyramid is 22 feet long at its base, the smallest (probably for a baby's burial) is just 30 inches at the base. It's believed that the Kush were inspired by the Egyptians in their pyramid-building fervor, though they added their own flourishes like the inner circles found in several examples. [Source]
