LONG LOST EGYPTIAN PYRAMIDS REDISCOVERED?
This interesting article was shared by Mr. D.W. It seems that there may be more pyramids in Egypt than we've been told, and obviously, I simply have to say something about it because of my personal fascination with the subject of all things pyramidal:
A Giant Discovery That Overshadows the Pyramids of Giza: Long-Lost Pyramids Confirmed in Egypt
This story, as the article notes, has been around since 2012, when their discoverer, Angela Micol, first noticed the strange anomalies on satellite photos, and predictably, the archaeological gatekeepers of orthodoxy disputed that the photos were of anything other than geological features. Think of it as the terrestrial version of NASA's response to the Viking photos of the Face on Mars "it's-just-a-trick-of-light-and-shadow": and "just another example of pareidola". Well, no one is finding faces here, but now the story has taken an unusual turn, for the site appears to be confirmed by old maps of the area:
While authoritative scholars have remained skeptical about the finding and dismissed the ‘structures’ as “Google Earth Anomalies” evidence has surfaced which supports Micol’s findings.
“After the buzz simmered down, I was contacted by an Egyptian couple who claimed to have important historical references for both sites,” Micol said.
The couple where Medhat Kamal El-Kady, former ambassador to the Sultanate of Oman, and his wife Haidy Farouk Abdel-Hamid, a lawyer, former counselor at the Egyptian presidency and adviser of border issues and international issues of sovereignty who happened to be collectors of ancient maps, old documents, books and other rare historical documents.
The story gets extremely interesting here. According to Medhat Kamal El-Kady and Haidy Farouk Abdel-Hamid the formations discovered by Micol near Abu Sdihum are labeled as being Pyramids in several ancient maps of the region.
We'll get back to the maps part of this story - and our high octane speculation - in a moment. Recent on-site inspection, however, seems to have verified that these mounds are indeed artificial structures:
“Those mounds are definitely hiding an ancient site below them,” Mohamed Aly Soliman, who led the preliminary expedition near Abu Sidhum, told Discovery News.
“First of all, the land around them is just a normal flat land. It is just desert — sand and stones,” he said. “The mounds are different: You will find pottery everywhere, seashells and transported layers. These are different layers, not belonging to the place, and were used by the Egyptians to hide and protect their buried sites,” he said.
There is, however, an apparent mystery to this site, and it is this that, for me at least, centered my interest. Consider, first, this statement that concludes the section on the various maps indicating the site:
Interestingly, there are several ancient documents that prove the mounds discovered by Micol are in fact ancient pyramids, which were buried in an attempt to hide their existence forever.
And then there's this vague reference to something "magical" about the site:
According to legends, the area near the pyramids is said to harbor ancient secrets and contain ‘great magic’.
If the discovery proves to be a genuine Pyramid, it would be the largest ever discovered in Egypt, making it an unprecedented discovery in the history of mankind.(Emphasis added)
I cannot help but indulge in some high octane speculation here, for by taking these three statements together, one ends up with some interesting possibilities:
- There was "great magic" associated with the site, "magic" which, on the axiom of Arthur C. Clarke that any sufficiently advanced technology might appear to be "magic" to a less-well-advanced observer of it, may have been
- Buried to prevent said "magic" from being used, or applied, again.
- The pyramid, if indeed it is a pyramid, would be the largest in Egypt, i.e., it would be bigger than the celebrated Great Pyramid of Giza itself, which, let us remind ourselves, was the tallest artificial structure in the world until the 19th century, when the Eiffel Tower was constructed.
Burying a site, and a pyramid so large, suggests that someone somewhere either wanted to hide something, or prevent its "great magic" from being used again. And to my mind, that means my own "weapons hypothesis" for the Great Pyramid may have been only partially correct: right idea, wrong pyramid. Its sheer size, in other words, would be more condign to the sort of out-of-the-box speculation I was indulging in with the weapon hypothesis to begin with.
Time will tell, of course, but the key will be the actual close excavation of the site and, on my view, a similar type of construction to the Great Pyramid: internal chambers, and more importantly, the presence within the structure of multiple and redundant dimensional analogs to local celestial and geodetic measures and features, something that has fascinated pyramid researchers about the Great Pyramid going all the way back to Sir Isaac Newton. All that of course will mean that one will have to await the close measuring of the site, which would take another Flinders Petrie to do.
For the moment, however, I am cautiously excited about the possibilities here; this is a story to watch.
See you on the flip side...

If this is really a discovery of pyramids larger than the pyramids of Giza, why is there no reference to them in classical literature? Surely the Egyptians of the Old Kingdom wold have known about them! If there are maps dating back hundreds of years showing these pyramids, why have people not been looking for them?? Why did Graham Hancock’s research not come up with this?
guess that depends on who controls the classic lit. anyone able to check anything at the library at alexandria lately? or read the dead sea scrolls or most “holy” books in their original?
Holy Enkinky Dina, are you actually suggesting that somebody is lying about a massively important discovery?! Don’t say it’s so!
Graham Hancock is an excellent researcher and I’ve read many of his books but he’s just one guy. We can’t be hanging our global discovery hats on just his coat hooks.
I would argue that people have been looking and for a long long time. Ever seen an Indiana Jones flick? The elitist archaeologist is out there and he is QUIET.
Let me say again; Q U IIIII EEEEEE T.
For my money, Robert Temple’s book The Sirius Mystery has potentially fantastic implications for where to look between Egypt & Libya. There are tribes in Africa whom have ancient oral stories that describe when the Nile ran westward across the continent. The Dogon are certain of this. Within the last year I even saw a mainstream story talking about interesting satellite photos that appear to corroborate Temple’s book.
Considering the water erosion around the sphinx I think it’s fairly safe to assume that other monuments could have been constructed adjacent to other waterways. Trace the path of the ancient Nile River system across Africa and we might find more similar structures.
ZDB: pertinent observation, we’re allowed to see nothing.
“There are tribes in Africa whom have ancient oral stories that describe when the Nile ran westward across the continent.”
Back when the Space Shuttle imaging radar mission had just been flown, NASA released ‘images’ across north-central Africa. In those dry, desert regions, the radar could penetrate deep into the sands, all the way to bedrock or sedimentary rock. Lo and behold, there were sand-filled ‘valleys’ that looked just like river valleys. They ran generally east-west. I remember looking at two river-valleys that converged into one, like the Ohio and the Mississippi Rivers in the United States, and saying, “THAT would be where I’d do an archaeological dig.”
I have heard of no effort since then to investigate that convergence-area. (Or any other.) At least public…
“Those mounds are hiding something below”. Full stop. So, as the mounds are protecting something, covering something beneath them. Something that could not be destroyed? It has been said that there are many mysteries in the deep desert between Egypt and Libya, including some very rare greenish looking glass. Glass that looks remarkably like the greenish fused silica found at the Trinity Nuclear Test Site–formed from by the heat from the nuclear blast fusing desert sand into stone, now called ‘Trinitite’.
Odd that so many permits and government oversight is needed to just take a trip into the desert west of the Giza Pyramids, no?
Here is a link, note the articles sited as references…seems that some interesting Italians and others have been investigating these glass specimens. And, of course, Childress uses this Libyan Desert Glass to bolster his claims that there was an ancient atomic war on Earth.
Nuclear blast is not the only explanation for the glass:
I “lightning” strike large enough to make a large crater miles in diameter has enough energy to fuse sand into glass, and more. . . .
Ah yes, the ‘Electric Universe’ people. They might be right; they have done extensive research. However, what might look like a natural event to us ‘advanced civilization’ types might actually be the work of Technology, as in a plasma discharge weapon, of an even more advanced civilization. A civilization that went to war with itself a long time ago…aka The Cosmic War.
Paolo, you might want to look up the fused-rock faces on certain ‘hill forts’ in Scotland and (I believe) Ireland. Conventional archaeologists try to explain them either by lightning strikes (too big an area) or by piling wood against the walls and bonfiring for a long time (doesn’t fuse the rocks). Advanced weaponry is obviously never considered…
Thanks, I know about those places. An entire fort looking structure that seems to have been thermally fused. Plus, vitrified rock formations and layers in Peru, highly radioactive sites in India and even uranium deposits in Africa that seem to have been previously mined—and perhaps even turned into a water moderated reactor, complete with trace amounts of Plutonium, an element that can only be created in a reactor.
Yeah, the orthodox camp proclaims that the “water moderated reactor” was solely nature-made, by complete randomness of Uranium concentration. I wondered about that, at the time. So much is hidden-away under ‘natural’ explanations…
(I also wonder about how Uranium could be on the surface of our planet in any sizable quantities, since it is the heaviest natural element and should have sunk to the Earth’s core during our molten phase…)
here ya go.
thanks for the hunziker link. curious where i’ve read him before. genius. analogies have been flowing to past financial, political, military,… shakeouts of the middle class by the 200 wealthiest families. obviously this isn’t the first time around. been looking to past examples trying to figure out how far mr global planned to take it this time. it’s not a pleasing prospect, but “let them eat cake” has been coming to mind for awhile now.
and as ever, i’m guessing we (or at least some of us) are stumbling onto previous stone versions of tesla’s wycliffe. and joseph et al are all right when viewed from varying angles. wycliffe seems designed, built and tested be the comprehensive global system for power generation, communication and weapons. tesla probably had some medical uses besides.
thank you all. have a good night.
Thanks zenodogbreath for the correct link.
I found Dr. John this morning & posted it on my way out the door.
I like counterpunch as another site that at times, has a few jewells posted[economist Michael Hudson for one]
The transnationals have growing ability to access certain financial strings of power. The precarious class is moving up in numbers to be the most populace class category. Contrarily China appears to be becoming a significant middle class in numbers and purchasing power. I wonder if they signed a deal on the dotted line[with the devil], as the connecting dotted lines for agreements suggest[GMOs, Stock Market, Rothschild, etc.,]?
The comparisons to the 1930s depression were quite revealing. As many savvy observer has pointed out/we’ve been in a depression for sometime; it’s even worse than the 1930s.
Austerity is their card playing out west, and death is their game.
… right idea, wrong pyramid.
Supposed to have been…
Dr. John – Right Place Wrong Time.
The last thing the PTB wanted was a new pyramid complex to be discovered in 2012. This is part and parcel of their Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Technological Global Retardation meme with petroleum only solutions, leading the charge.
I’ve always thought that “part” of the billions the US gives to Egypt was for a “keep quiet” on Egyptian antiquities. Remember Zahi Hawass was on a $200,000 retainer by either the History channel or National Geographic to “go with the flow”. So a new pyramid, don’t expect any revealing news any time soon, the world isn’t ready for a new take on Egypt, reason, WE CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH.
The real issue here is regards the global coverup that has been going on in relation to all the pyramidal structures across the planet. Satellite imagary has uncovered dozens of pyramids that are buried in China yet the establishments there denies all knowledge when theyre clearly visible. All countries must be in cahoots about this issue amongst many many others which leads me to believe we’re all being played. Geopolitics is simply theatre for the masses.
At one level I suspect your right. That governments are being “put in-place” by hook-or-crook and thus subject to those who put them in power[as they can also remove their power]. Thus, it’s coming down to the obvious[for those whose perceptions aren’t so easily managed], that those governments are not there for the public; they’re there to control the public[Public, Enemy #1].
At a deeper level those power brokers are in-turn being subjected to those above them. A pyramid chain of organized power, whose tip may be “magical” & “ancient”.
At even deeper levels, these organizational structures may develop a quantum matryoshkaness of dimensions, that is as deceptive as time is itself.
Just based on the film of the structures in the video they look a heck of a lot like eroded sediment layers – not anything made of blocks. That’s not to say the sites are not “magic.” Magic can hover about geological formations as well.
According to geological maps the area north of Lake Qarun (Fayoum) is limestone, and the area to the south is said to be mixed (and thus softer) sediment. The formations in the photos seen from the ground do rather look like natural sediment, especially the ones where layering is clearly visible. But photos I have found online are not really detailed enough to tell whether the mounds are natural, or heavily eroded artificial structures. In the satellite photos, showing the overall shape, they do indeed look geometrical enough to be constructions. But there is a third possibility: natural hills that were artificially shaped. This can be seen at some sites in the Andes.
“But there is a third possibility: natural hills that were artificially shaped.”
That might be a good ‘dating’ device. The Sphinx head (whatever it originally portrayed) was shaped from a natural ‘yardang’ or protuberance. So, these artificial pyramids may belong to the same culture. If Robert Schoch’s more-courageous recent dating of the Sphinx to just after the end of the last Ice Age is correct, we may be seeing other ‘remnants’ of that early civilization.
It will be interesting to see if someone defies the Establishment and puts some money & equipment into a proper exploration of these structures…
I remember seeing and/or reading about that; presented a good case for the theory.
It was deliberately buried? How very very interesting, as that does indeed bring up the buried weapons of the Enuma Elish. But, that also reminds me of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey and makes me wonder now if that is another ancient weapon. No one suggests that possibility, but now I am wondering just what is going on there.
Those ancient times aren’t so ancient.
Buried magic by the sands of time; is today’s buried magic by silicon sands. This is pareidolia of familiar patterns, where they say there are none, is purposed ignorance/management perception.
By the time “we” get the story; it will be sanitized of any beyond belief magic. After all, this is proprietary property of the ruling elites… and whose pulling these elitist strings?
Just wondering if this newly found Egyptian pyramids are more intact. Could these structures provide answers to the real uses of the pyramids once for all. All are the academics cowering in fear that their house of cards they’ve built up over the millennia be about to fall.
