Archaeologists believe they have solved the mystery of the Egyptian pyramids

AArchaeologists believe they have solved the mystery behind one of the wonders of the world. Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington have discovered that Egypt’s pyramids, including the Pyramids of Giza, may have been built on an abandoned branch of the Nile.

Some 4,700 years after the pyramids were built, studies suggest that a lost 64-kilometer branch of the Nile was used to transport construction materials, which took a thousand years to complete, which may explain what the pyramids are all about. Now a narrow, uninhabited area of ​​the Sahara desert.

“Many of us interested in ancient Egypt know that the Egyptians must have used waterways to build monumental monuments such as the pyramids and valley temples, but no one knows for sure the location, shape, size or proximity of the Megaway to the actual site of the pyramids,” said Eman Konim of the University of North Carolina.

Along these lines, the researcher and his colleagues analyzed satellite images to locate a channel that ran beneath the Sahara. They also used geophysical studies to confirm the presence of river sediments and ancient channels beneath the modern Earth’s surface.

Scientists theorize that wind-blown sand deposition and a major drought that began 4,200 years ago may explain the eastward migration and eventual sedimentation of this branch of the river.
