Fantastic discoveries including the lost capital of ancient Egypt. Rotten timing under a government that would like to destroy all evidence of pre-Isamic rule. Do click through to see the video.
Egyptian pyramids found by infra-red satellite images
By Frances Cronin BBC News
Seventeen lost pyramids are among the buildings identified in a new satellite survey of Egypt.
More than 1,000 tombs and 3,000 ancient settlements were also revealed by looking at infra-red images which show up underground buildings.
Initial excavations have already confirmed some of the findings, including two suspected pyramids.
The work has been pioneered at the University of Alabama at Birmingham by US Egyptologist Dr Sarah Parcak.
