Lost pyramids spotted from space

A new satellite survey of Egypt is believed to have identified more than 1,000 tombs and 3,000 ancient settlements from infra-red images.

And initial excavations have already confirmed some of the findings including two suspected pyramids. Some reports have suggested 17 lost pyramids have been located.

Dr Sarah Parcak has pioneered the work in space archaeology from a Nasa-sponsored laboratory in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. She says she was amazed at how much she and her team have found.
