I'm still new to ATS and I'm pretty sure there might be some post about these but I cannot find out too much info regarding them I'll post a link to a Google Earth vid, but I've been to a few pages that show more info.

www.youtube.com...

and here

www.earthquest.co.uk...

A few years ago I was shocked to learn that they existed in the first place


What I don't know nor can find out do these Pyramids have anything in common with those of Egypt or Aztec/Mayans outside of their basic shape?

1. The Earth orientation N/S etc?
2. Are these Giant burial mounds?
3. Temple complexes?
4. Age?
5. Was there a progression of development?
6. Dimensions?
7. Artwork from inside of the tombs?

It seems to me that Red China is being very selfish with whatever research has produced.

If you have any info please reply thanks

The wiki gives a clear if brief introduction to the Chinese "pyramids" , really earth mounds.

Do a run on google scholar to see what has been published.


This book from 2000 has some Chinese P information

Book




Ancient Technology provides a fascinating look at a particular area of technology as it developed in ancient times, from the first humans to the fall of the Western Roman Empire in A.D. 476. Each chapter covers a different ancient civilization, beginning with Stone Age cultures and progressing chronologically through others, such as the ancient Middle East, Egypt, China, Mesoamerica, Greece, Rome, and India. Every book includes a world map and timeline to show the location and timespan of each culture. Supports the national curriculum standards Culture; Time, Continuity, and Change; People, Places, and Environments; Science Technology and Society; and Global Connections as outlined by the National Council for the Social Studies.

The Hall of Maat is about the least credible website on the internet.
Their cirticism of Graham Hancock are laughable.

They are clearly biased in favor of the obviously wrong outdated notions about history, and clearly biased against the truth and anything new.

Wholly irrelevant
But I take you you haven't checked out some of Hancock's 'references'? Sorry Hollywood, but some people believe you need evidence, others, like, so it seems, you, think making up stuff makes it real



Anyway, as for the Chinese 'pyramids' this is a great site with good pictures: www.trilobia.com...

Says who? I disagree. The pyramid is a fundemental shape, simple geometry: something our brain excels at.

Consider this: Why have the same civilizations almost exclusively built box shaped houses? Or are you saying that the Mayans, Egyptians and Chinese also couldnt have made the homes they lived in, since this is a shape and design even more complex than the pyramid?

You're looking for information under the wrong term.

They're not true pyramids (no squared off sides, etc.) They are burial mounds.

If you google for "chinese mound tombs" you get a lot of information about them. Some Japanese tombs follow this same model as well.

In general, they're bronze age type monuments and have a pretty complex inner structure. Depending on where they were, they had different features -- near Mongolia, they're called "kurgens" and can be pretty elaborate:
en.wikipedia.org...

Near Korea (part of China at one time) you do get stone, but they're very different (low round mounds of stone):
en.wikipedia.org...

One book I have looked at indicates that these tombs (Chinese, Korean, Japanese) have some common histories... the earliest forms are tombs dug into hillsides. By the 5th century, they start building their own hills ("pyramids") and eventually incorporate stone in the building rather than soil.

As I understand it, when they did the "build your own hill" type burial, a tomb was constructed first and then covered with earth.

The pyramid was not the only shape. Apparently Emperor Qin's tomb (with the soldiers) was dragon shaped:
