Lost Egyptian pyramids discovered with Google Earth

I'm not sure if this has been posted already. My apologies if it has been. I did a quick search and didn't see anything, but my search skills are not up to par...

A groundbreaking discovery has been made by an American archaeologist who spotted what looks like two new pyramid sites in Egypt, with one site viewed on satellite being three times the size of Great Pyramid at Giza.

Angela Micol is based in North Carolina and has spent ten years scrutinizing Google Earth, hunting for ancient sites from space.

She has come across two areas containing unusual shaped mounds along the Nile basin. One of them reportedly features a triangular plateau possibly the largest ever revealed.

The researcher is now planning to go visit the sites to make sure they really are what they seem to be.

It’s not the first time Google Earth has helped archaeologists make discoveries. Last year, an American Egyptologist managed to identify seventeen lost pyramids with the help of the detailed mapping.
