The Pyramid of the Sun is the third largest pyramid in the world.
It was constructed between 1 A.D. and 250 A.D.
It is located next to the Pyramid of the Moon in Teotihuacan, Mexico.
The location of the two pyramids was considered a holy place, where the ancients believed the universe was created.
There is a cave under the Pyramid of the Sun, which was the site of religious ceremonies.
The Pyramid was discovered shortly after 1900, but the cave wasn't found until the 1970′s.
The pyramid is 200 feet tall. The foundation is a square and each side of the square is 730 feet long.
The perimeter of the Pyramid of the Sun is exactly equal to the perimeter of the Great Pyramid in Giza.
This begs the question, were the designers of the Pyramid of the Sun the same beings as the designers of the Great Pyramid?
Oceanographer Paulina Zelitsky discovered a sunken city on the Cuban shelf in 2000.
This city contains three underwater pyramids, buildings and roads.
It was discovered using side scanning sonar. This type of sonar uses sound waves to image the ocean floor.
Researchers theorize that the city sunk after an earthquake 2000 years ago.
The discovery proves that North Americans arrived earlier than thought and that they did not arrive via the Bering Strait.
This agrees with the findings of British archaeologists who discovered human tracks that were 40,000 years old.
The pyramids in the sunken city are 8000 to 10000 years old which predates the Egyptian pyramids which are 3000 to 5000 years old.
The city is located at a depth of 2200 feet, which is too deep for scuba divers to explore. The sunken city is being explored by Remote Operated Video (ROV).
An expedition is being planned which will be funded by National Geographic.
Off the coast of Japan, there is an ancient city which covers 311 miles. This city has been dated to 8000 B.C.
The oldest pyramid in Egypt, which the Step Pyramid is dated to 3000 B.C.
The interesting thing about this find is that it appears to be as old as the underwater city off Cuba, which was discovered by Paulina Zelitsky.
Near the Island of Yonaguni, scuba divers found an underwater pyramid in 100 feet of water.
The building is 240 feet long.
The archaeological find covers eight separate locations.
The archaeological record for Japan is traced back to the Neolithic period 9000 years ago.. Nothing in that time frame suggests the the Japanese of the period had the technology to build the structures such as the ones in the underwater pyramid.
Jim Mower, an archaeologist at University College, London, said, “If it is confirmed that the site is as old as 10000 years and is man-made, then this is going to change an awful lot of the previous thinking on southeast Asian history. It would put the people on a par with the ancient civilization of Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley.”
