PYRAMIDS IN SUDAN!
Did you know that there are approximately 255 tall and slender pyramids constructed at three sites in Nubia over a period of a few hundred years to serve as tombs for the kings and queens of Napata and Meroë, in the Sudan. They appear to be 3-dimensional Phi-based Triangles aka Golden Phi Pyramidal Prisms, whose base angles are 72° and the apex being 36°.
The physical proportions of Nubian pyramids differ markedly from the Egyptian edifices: they are built of stepped courses of horizontally positioned stone blocks and range from approximately 6–30 metres (20–98 ft) in height, but rise from fairly small foundation footprints that rarely exceed 8 metres (26 ft) in width, resulting in tall, narrow structures inclined at approximately 72°. Most also have offering temple structures abutting their base with unique Kushite characteristics. By comparison, Egyptian pyramids of similar height generally had foundation footprints that were at least five times larger and were inclined at angles between 40–52°. The Egyptian name for Nubia was Kush, hence Kushite.
All of the pyramid tombs of Nubia were plundered in ancient times. An important discovery were the Ringing Rocks that were tapped to create a melodic sound.
Nubian pyramids are pyramids that were built by the rulers of the ancient Kushite kingdoms. The area of the Nile valley known as Nubia, which lies within present day Sudan, was home to three Kushite kingdoms during antiquity. The first had its capital at Kerma (2600-1520BC). The second was centred on Napata (1000–300 BC). Finally, the last kingdom was centred on Meroe (300 BC–AD 300). They are built of granite and sandstone. The Nubian pyramids are now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
