Ancient Nubian Pyramids

Ancient Nubian Pyramids | Native Americans and Mesopotamia |
The number of pyramids in ancient Nubia (aka kingdom of Kush & today is called Sudan) were a total of 223, double the pyramids of its neighbor Egypt. The underground graves of the Nubian pyramids were richly decorated.

Andrew Nayyar's insight:

The amount of gold in the region reminds me of San Francisco's gold rush.

Nubia rivaled Egypt in wealth and power, and mutually influenced each other.

This article was very interesting and descriptive in the uses of Pyramids in Ancient Nubia aka Kush aka Sudan. There is even a restored drawing of what the Pyramid field of Nubia would like look like in its prime. The engineering demonstrated in building a structure as grand as a pyramid is something that is interesting in itself and this article gives these monuments content that really furthers ones apreciation toward the Pyramids.

Does Sudan have more pyramids than Egypt? In this series, we explore the splendours of the ancient Kingdom of Kush and the legacy it left behind in the land of the Black Pharaohs

Andrew Nayyar's insight:

This article was again comparing the two regions of Sudan and Egypt. I liked how this article divides the regions of the Kushite Kingdom. I was fascinated at the Island of Menroe and its cemeteries and pyramids.
