'Two New Pyramids' Found On Google Earth

Experts are examining satellite images of two possible new pyramid complexes in Egypt.

Two new pyramid complexes may have been discovered in a satellite survey of Egypt.

The potentially important sites, standing 90 miles apart, are made up of unusual-shaped mounds, according to archaeology researcher Angela Micol.

Ms Micol has spent the past 10 years searching for ancient sites from space using Google Earth.

The first area stands in Upper Egypt, some 12 miles from the city of Abu Sidhum along the Nile.

It includes a 620ft-wide triangular plateau - almost three times the size of the Great Pyramid.
