The Pyramids of Meroë (Sudan)

The Pyramids of Meroë (Sudan)

Along the banks of the Nile River, in eastern Sudan, lies a collection of nearly 200 ancient pyramids in the desert. Built between 2,700 and 2,300 years ago, many of them are tombs of the kings and queens of the ancient Meroitic Kingdom. The pyramids have narrow bases and steep angles on the sides and contain elements from the cultures of Pharaonic Egypt, Greece, and Rome.
