Between 2009 and 2012, a research team at a site in Sudan dug up 35 small pyramides. They are at least 2,000 years old and a dozen of them were concentrated in an area slightly bigger than an NBA basketball court, reports Fox News. Presumably, the pyramids were built under the kingdom of Kush which at the time shared a border with Egypt, from which they were influenced.

According to researcher Vincent Francigny: “The density of the pyramids is huge…Because it lasted for hundreds of years they built more, more, more pyramids and after centuries they started to fill all the spaces that were still available in the necropolis.” The biggest pyramid found is 22 feet wide whereas the smalles is 30 inches long.
