Amazing drone footage released last month from National Geographic Engineer Alan Turchik shows the world some excellent shots of the Northern Sudan’s 3000 year old pyramids.
Pyramids today remain a complete mystery to researchers, archaeologists, and scientists alike. Theories have have been put forth, but we still don’t have a concrete notion of how they were built or by whom, or even what their purpose is. There are still several questions that remain unanswered, which is why many of them are considered to be some of the greatest ancient unsolved mysteries in human history.
One of the most fascinating things about the pyramids is the fact that they have been discovered all over the world. They range in size but are remarkably similar in construction, and are known to have been built by several ancient civilizations – in several different time periods – all of which were completely unaware of each other’s existence. It’s truly remarkable and mind-blowing when you think about it, isn’t it?
Pyramids have not only been discovered on land, but underwater as well. Here is a great example of one that was found off the coast of Japan.
It’s also noteworthy to mention that large quantities of liquid metal were recently found under one of the oldest pyramids in Mexico. You can read more about that story here.
Adding to the mystery is the extreme mathematical precision, longitude and latitude “coincidences,” and astronomical significance of these structures, not to mention the sheer size and weight of the blocks used to build them. A great example is the incredible pyramid at Giza, you can read more about the mind-altering facts about that one in an article we published about a year ago, here.
Although thousands of years of wear and tear have occurred, these structures still stand in amazing condition. It’s absolutely remarkable, and I think it’s always interesting and worthwhile to gaze upon these unknown mysteries of our ancient past. Maybe one day we will find out what the truth really is behind this miraculous worldwide phenomenon.

I joined the CE team in 2010 shortly after finishing university and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since :) There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation. So stay tuned :) firstname.lastname@example.org
