MFS - Strange But True - Things / Other 8


The Nubian Pyramids,approximately 220 pyramids were eventually 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 Meroƫ. The first of these was built at the site of el-Kurru, including the tombs of King Kashta and his son Piye (Piankhi), together with Piye's successors Shabaka, Shabataka, and Tanwetamani. Fourteen pyramids were constructed for their queens, several of whom were renowned warrior queens. This can be compared to approximately 120 pyramids that were constructed in Ancient Egypt over a period of 3000 years.Read more about it on MFS,with videoclip of the site.


  1. Have they figured out yet how the Egyptians constructed the pyramids, or do you subscribe to the alien theory?

  2. Hi Lauren.
    Well i have doubts about a number of pyramids.
    A book to read is "Gods of the new millenium" it mentions the Sumerian civilisation and also the Gilgamesh epos ,in this the "Gods" wage war among themselfs and one 'God"hides in "The house as a mountain" in the end he's defeated and the interior of the house is damaged.
    These damages are exactly how the inside of the great pyramid of Giza looks.
    Considering that the Sumerian civilisation predated the Egyptian pyramids by 3000 years it makes you think who build them if they were allready around in their legends.
    And they allways discribed their gods as people of flesh and blood no little grey

  3. Pyramids were constructed in different parts of the world thousands of years ago. If you think about, people didn't travel around freely in those days so how did the concept of pyramid building stretched from one end of the globe to the other? I watched what would on the History channel on the how the pyramids in Egypt were built, it's mind bloggling! And to think it was all done by human labor is hard to believe
