Scientists use 'fractal analysis' to uncover ancient Egyptian pyramid practice site

A team of Earth scientists from Germany has turned to fractal pattern recognition analysis to study a part of the ground that makes up a river delta, and has found evidence of pyramid building practice by the father of the man believed to be responsible for building the Great Pyramid of Giza. The team describe their technique and results in their paper published in the journal Quaternary International.

Fractals are natural or artificially created geometric patterns that form designs that appear to repeat themselves when magnified, over and over again.
