(London Daily Mail) Mounds of sand spotted in the Egyptian desert using Google Earth might be the site of long-lost pyramids.

American archaeology researcher Angela Micol pinpointed two areas along the Nile basin, 90 miles apart, both containing unusual shaped mounds last year.

There was resistance by other archaeologists about whether her find was indeed that of unknown pyramids but now a preliminary ground study using ancient maps suggest that the location might, in fact, be correct.
