More than a mile away then in the egyptian pyramid yes but the mesoamerican pyramid were often built in a cruder fashion of shaped mound with a stone
casing course and it all depends on how stable the inner chamber is as the pyramid should survive but the tremors may cause a cave in so I would
rather be in the egyptian chamber, as for a direct hit well,.
A ground effect nuclear device is known as a crust cracker and above 5 megaton's well look up nevada test craters on google for your answer as even
in the biggest pyramid I think you would likely be killed by the blast which would likely demolish or partially demolish the pyramid.
Modern (in the 1960's and 1970's) Military installations such as the norad facility are built under mountains, then reinforcement is made to both the
cavern and the seperate office building/control centre built in the cavern and seperated from the surrounding walls as the shock wave alone can be
lethal, this building is also placed on shock absorbing spring's so a during a direct hit you do not want to be there but these will survive one hit
or maybe several, the pyramids on the other hand you are relying on the mass of the structure and I think they are simple not large enough or shock
resistant enough, most ground effect nuclear devices have reduced impact radius but throw more radioactive materiel into the air and have more
epicentre devestation leaving a meteorite like crater but by contrast most anti city attacks would be air bursts a thousand feet or more above the
target which use the shock wave and radiation release to destroy a large area but are less radio active in the long run as there fallout is irradiated
dust and the remains of the bomb itself.
Somebody has probably performed a computer simulation somewhere but the construction of the great pyramid is not yet thouroughly enough know to be
certain how much it would resist.
