Two archaeological sites spotted in Egypt could be previously lost pyramid clusters. The sites were found by an American satellite researcher using Google Earth. One of the sites, pictured above, contains a 600-foot wide triangular mound surrounded by three smaller pyramidal formations. The other site has a four-sided, 140-square foot pyramidal shape with three similar, but smaller, mounds nearby.

“The images speak for themselves,” said Angela Micol of North Carolina, who discovered the sites. “It’s very obvious what the sites may contain but field research is needed to verify they are, in fact, pyramids and evidence should be gathered to determine their origins.”

Information about the potentially major discovery has been made available on the website Google Earth Anomalies.

Images of the sites have been sent to Egyptologists and other researchers who will conduct field studies to determine whether these mound clusters are pyramids. Pyramid expert Nabil Selim has already confirmed that the sites are previously undiscovered. He said some of the smaller mounds at one of the sites resemble the 13th Dynasty Egyptian Pyramids.

Micol has spent years combing through ancient civilizations using images from space generated by Google Earth. She has used the satellite imaging site to make several archaeological discoveries, including a potential underwater city off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula. She is currently working on a documentary about the previously undiscovered sites she has located using Google Earth.
