Sixteen Nubian Pyramids Found
Archaeologists have found the remnants of sixteen pyramids in the Sudan. Ten of them are made of mud brick and six are made of stone. The largest is over 30 feet long on each side and would have risen to a height of forty or more feet when completed. For more information click here.
