Google Earth the Archaeologist: Pyramids Found?

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Did a technical innovation from online search giant Google just help aid archaeologists in a key discovery? According to a report appearing on, archaeological researcher Angela Micol was able to pinpoint the locations of what could be two previously undiscovered Egyptian pyramid complexes.

The Google Earth images display distinct features in desert-type terrain for the complexes which are separated by ninety miles.

“The images speak for themselves. It’s very obvious what the sites may contain but field research is needed to verify they are, in fact, pyramids and evidence should be gathered to determine their origins. It is my hunch there is much more to these sites and with the use of Infrared imagery, we can see the extent of the proposed complexes in greater detail,” commented Micol via

Future steps will include notifying proper officials in order to protect the possible sites until further analysis is made. Angela Micol has routinely worked with Google Earth technology to study other geographic locations. She hopes to launch a documentary on her discoveries.

In the past, Google Earth had caused widespread speculation regarding interesting geographic imagery. Among the most discussed are possible locations for the legendary city of Atlantis.
