Pyramids of Meroe 800 BC

Wonders of the World

The capital of Kush was centered at Meroe between 800 BC and 350 AC. There are many pyramids dotted all over Sudan, however they are much smaller than those in Egypt. They are built in the Nubian style, which means they are characteristically steep and made from black rock.
