So, I was just scrolling through Google Earth and was looking around for a long time until I came to these. Before posting, I tried to explain it. Looked around to see if any outside life could have came trough by road and there was no road. Then I looked to see if anyone could have travelled by the rivers near by. One river had too many rocks in it and the other came from an underground source and no roads near it. So it got me thinking that this could be some ancient buildings of some sort. The first are what I believe is some type of pyramid. Looks like something the Incas would create.

The second is another pic of another proposed pyramid. As you can see it isn't the best of quality, but you can see that it will be the same shape as the other 2 I have shown.

The last is what I believe are burial mounds of some sort. There is one one the top right and another one on the bottom left, slightly bigger than the other one.

As I already said, I tried to find any explaination to this, but couldn't. I am not an expert, so I ma be looking at something that can just be normal buildings, so I have no idea what this is.

All I hope is that others can give their imput on what this can be.

This is located in Guetemala at15"41'37.87" N 89"23'07.45" W

EDIT: how do I get the pic to work?

This sounds interesting. You get the pictures to work by either a.) Getting the URL of the image and posting it with the "insert an image" command in the post screen. You do that by right clicking on the picture, going down to properties, and then copying the URL. You now have what you need to insert an "external image" b.) If the image is small enough, you can type the box [ats], then insert your URL. Follow it with the exact same ats box, only place a slash right after the first bracket, and right before the letter "a". This will show the picture in your post instead of creating an external image link. Hope to see these pictures soon!

This may help a bit better, now that I think about it. Go to "quote", which is in the top right corner of this post. You can then see the two different ways that I posted the same image in it's code form.

Here is the image with the "img" boxes:



Now, here is the same image with the "ats" boxes:



Hope that helps!

It's a native village with a few families living there. They typically will have a few of these roofed houses (the gray is the thatching) and a path through the jungles to it (good spotting.) They clear the area in the forest and then set up their structures.

I happen to have just toured a site of Middle Mississippian Indians in Southern Indiana. The site is called Angel Mounds, named after the family who owned the property before it was bought by pharmaceutical Eli Lilly in the early 1950's.

The point is, the Native Americans who lived at this site were there between 1050 and 1450 roughly, and the structures they built were somewhat pyramid-shaped, but the use of their mounds, about 12 of them on site, were for either placing ceremonial structures on top of the mounds or for for placing other structures on top, such as round houses made of straw and mud (probably used for sweat lodges).

Seems the "pyramidal" shape works well for an ancient culture because it offers a vantage point for whoever is standing on top of it. Can't say that for the Egyptians, I guess, however, I was looking for structural similarities to other pyramids or mounds, and generally, its just dirt piled up and shaped.

If anyone finds themselves passing by the area where Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri and Indiana come together at the Ohio River, you should check this site out.

It's only 3% excavated, though not sure of any plans to dig deeper into the mounds.

So does this mean any chance my findings are something than just houses?

Yup, just fancy, old time houses...old as in thousands of year old based on pyramid type shapes.

Just my guess. In really dense vegetation, there is a distinct advantage of building your house on a "hill" or a pyramid.
