Pyramids of Meroe

About 200 km north-east of Khartoum, near Bagrawiya, you can find a hill where a few dozen pyramids spread over a small area. The pyramids, much smaller than their well-known counterparts in Egypt, are the remains of a royal cemetery from the Meroitic kingdom (between 300 B.C. and 300 A.D.).

These pyramids have been left unprotected for a long time and experienced severe damage by the steady action of winds and dust storms over the decades of this century.
