One of the complex sites contains a distinct, four-sided, truncated, pyramidal shape that is approximately 140 feet in width.
This site contains three smaller mounds in a very clear formation,
similar to the diagonal alignment of the Giza Plateau pyramids.
The second possible site
contains four mounds with a larger, triangular-shaped plateau. The two
larger mounds at this site are approximately 250 feet in width, with two
smaller mounds approximately 100 feet in width. This site complex is
arranged in a very clear formation with the large plateau, or butte,
nearby in a triangular shape with a width of approximately 600 feet.
archaeology researcher Angela Micol of Maiden, North Carolina. Angela
has been conducting satellite archaeology research for over ten years,
searching for ancient sites from space using satellite imagery.
Angela is a UNC Charlotte alumni and has studied archaeology since
childhood. Google Earth has allowed her to document many possible
archaeological sites, including a potential underwater city off the
coast of the Yucatan peninsula that has sparked the interest of
scientists, researchers and archaeologists. Angela has been assisted by
Don J. Long and Bill Donato.
The sites have been verified as undiscovered by Egyptologist and
pyramid expert Dr. Nabil Swelim. Nabil’s discoveries include the pyramid
called Sinki at Abydos and the Dry Moat surrounding the Step pyramid
Complex at Saqqara. Nabil has stated the smaller 100 foot “mounds”, at
one of the proposed complex sites, are a similar size as the 13th
Dynasty Egyptian pyramids, if a square base can be discovered.
The Egyptian sites have been sent to Egyptologists
and researchers for further investigation and “ground truthing”. Angela
has stated, “The images speak for themselves. 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. It is my hunch there is much more to these sites and with the
use of Infrared imagery, we can see the extent of the proposed complexes
in greater detail.”
This is just one site of many Angela has identified that may contain
ancient ruins. “My dream is to work with archaeologists to release sites
that I have identified over the past ten years of research. This
research is the frontier of discovery and it’s just beginning to advance
views of our ancient past”, states Angela.
Many of the documented areas will remain undisclosed until proper
officials are notified and the sites can be protected. Angela is
raising funds for a documentary that will include many of the
undiscovered sites that have been identified using Google Earth. Angela
is also forming a non-profit organization to promote satellite
archaeology and remote sensing. A select, small portion of the sites can
be viewed online with Google Earth by visiting Angela’s “anomaly
collection” at http://www.googleearthanomalies.com.

Pyramid of Sinki in Egypt. Notice the central
area of the pyramid is a recession it looks similar to a square with the
top being truncated.
Interesting features of the two small mounds:
Recent images of the “mound” site show evidence of someone digging into the “mound”.
Peruvian Pyramids that look like regular hills due to erosion:
The pyramids of Tucume, Peru known as “the Valley of the Pyramids”.
Pyramids are heavily eroded.
