Under The Sand In The Sahara Desert
Could Re-Write History Of Ancient Egypt
The Great Flood is a controversial topic among scientists but there are those who are convinced once in the distant past our planet was submerged and the waters wiped out entire civilizations. Some would say it was the day when Earth nearly died.
Many people associate the story of the Great Flood with the Bible. However, the story of Noah’s ark is not just a Biblical story. Noah was known under a different name in India, among ancient Egyptians and Native Americans, just to mention a few cultures.
Some of the details of the Noah story seem mythical, so many biblical scholars believe the story of Noah and the Ark was inspired by the legendary flood stories of nearby Mesopotamia, in particular “The Epic of Gilgamesh.”
According to a controversial theory once in the distant past there really was a mother of all floods. Fascinated by the idea that the story of the great Flood might be true, Robert Ballard, one of the world’s best-known underwater archaeologists decided to look for traces of an ancient lost civilization that could reveal more information about the Deluge.
Meanwhile, we can admire and puzzling ancient structures like those discovered by Angela Micol, founder of The Satellite Archaeology Foundation, Inc.
| Based on the satellite imagery, Micol suggests that the mounds might represent eroded pyramids.The up-close pictures make the formations look more like piles of rocky rubble.
The largest one appears to have the ruins of a square building or walls on its summit, but it’ll take a full-blown excavation to unravel the mystery.
“We have found some incredible evidence at the Abu Sidhum site and it could be much older than many in Egypt.
There is a distinct water line on all four mounds at around 50 feet in height.
If this site is proven to be an artificial pyramid/mound site it could date back to the Predynastic or the Prehistoric period of ancient Egypt, making this one of the oldest known pyramid/mound complexes in Egypt.
The implications that this site, if proven artificial may be an amazingly old site and could even rewrite the history of ancient Egypt,” Angela Micol says.

Angela Micol was contacted by an expedition team in Egypt who visited the Abu Sidhum site.
They sent detailed video of the mounds, showing how they resembled pyramids, along with video of pottery shards which covered the area extensively and helped confirm something is buried under the sand near the site of Abu Sidhum.
The team used a metal and cavity detector that gave positive results for tunnels and cavities inside all four mounds/possible pyramids!
The team and and Angela Micol believe to have identified a temple or habitation site near the Abu Sidhum site and a row of what may be mastaba tombs adjacent to the mounds!
According to Italian archaeologist Paola Davoli, the structures may have been watchtowers – but she hasn’t ruled out the possibility that they might also be tombs or well sites. What’s needed is an excavation to unlock the secrets hidden within.
So for the moment, these remarkable ancient structures remain shrouded in mystery but with proper investigation scientists may learn more about the remains.
