It's difficult to attempt fathom what we do not know. Makes me wonder what is still out there undiscovered.

A pyramid? A few too many sides.
Not very symmetrical and kind of short. But if you want to call it a pyramid, you're going to call it a pyramid.

Exciting find for archeo-geeks like me.

Its temple likely ,Phage, there are news sources citing the words 'main pyramid' which is where I think the poster above is getting it from.

Settle down sweet cheeks.

Don't look like no pyramid to me honeypie.

And to clarify, it is not the "pyramid" which the story is about. It is about a temple within the "pyramid". The "pyramind", obviously has been known about for a while.

dear sugarlumps.

The main Pyramid is what is being confused I believe. But also it is understandable that Djosers step pyramid is referenced for the temple.

For simplicity I think it is referenced as a pyramid. But it does have too many sides and does not qualify for a pyramid as such.

It does seem to resemble a step pyramid though.

When did they start adding extra sides to traditional pyramids? Or is it the other way round.

Bit like the chicken and the egg scenario...

And lets not forget any potential cities that are now underwater!

OP- Nice find and thank you for sharing. Ancient history is by far one of the best topics still discussed here on ATS.

It is much more enjoyable than all the left/right bashing that goes on here constantly.

Yes, don't forget the underwater cites.
I think they found one just east of the Island of Bimini.

Ancient Temple: who taught them how to build a pyramid and why a pyramid?

By potentially finding the hearth that could also reveal what it was used for. I believe this region and period was known for human sacrifice.

If that is the case, wonder if they found any bone fragments.
Though i never understood, why they find dinosaur eggs on the
open ground, whereas the ancient cities are all buried, considering
that these mammoths existed b4 65 million years

If it is a pyramid,

even undo will have to agree that it is truncated.

The dinosaur eggs have been underground at some point. Usually, when they are found in the open, it is higher ground that has been eroded, exposing the fossilized eggs.
Fossilized fish and other marine life are found in the open.... they were obviously at the bottom of some body of water at one point.
