New Finds in the Sudan

I saw an article about some interesting finds in the Sudan and thought I would pass it along to everyone.

At a site called Sedeinga, a huge number of pyramids were built. Inside the pyramids are circular constructions that, according to the archaeologists, add nothing to the stability of the pyramid. So why are these circular structures there? One possibility is that the circular structures are a "nod" to the tumuli that were used in earlier times for burials in the region, while the pyramid was a conscious imitation of ancient Egyptian pyramids.

Here is a link to the article:
