RUBBISH, the great white pyramid used to have stone casing, also ancient Chinese were expert's at using RAMMED EARTH.
If rammed earth would simply collapse then why are many sections of the great wall made solely from rammed earth still around today.
They are PYRAMIDAL so they fall into the category of Pyramid's, also the majority of them are still off limit's but there are claim's of stone faced/Clad pyramid's and even an iron pyramid.
The real problem is simply that they PREDATE the HAN especially in the region were they are mostly found and indicate a glorious civilization in the region that later became China and that the HAN can not claim as there own, the people whom built most of them including some of the greatest ones such as the great white pyramid (one side of which was later dug out and turned into a tomb for a LATER Han general) were built by a great and probably already ancient civilization while most the HAN and other tribes that are today regarded as Han of that time were nothing more than tribal primitives living in or on the borders of the south east Asian jungles.
