Heavily influenced by ancient Egypt culturally, economically, politically, and militarily, the Nubian pyramids of Sudan were built by the rulers of the ancient Kushite kingdoms around 4,000 years ago. In the 1830s, Italian explorer Giuseppe Ferlini came to Sudan seeking treasure. To access the hidden jewels, he and his men destroyed many of the pyramids that had previously been found in good condition. We have seen a few of these pyramid clusters dotted around the desert without any protection. Let’s hope these important landmarks remain intact!
