Flying a drone over Sudan’s 3,000 year old Nubian Pyramids

Present-day Sudan has more pyramids than Egypt does, smaller structures known as Nubian pyramids that were built by the rulers of the ancient Kushite kingdoms. The first site of these royal tombs was in El-Kurru in northern Sudan.

National Geographic engineer Alan Turchik recently flew a mini-helicopter over the 3,000 year old royal cemeteries at El-Kurru as a part of archaeologist Geoff Emberling’s expedition. Above, he narrates the flight.
