A mysterious 2,000-year-old tomb with a pyramid-like shape has been found beneath a construction site.
The discovery was made in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, at the site of an old village where builders had been preparing to begin work on a new residential compound.

Believed to be part of an ancient burial site, the intriguing tomb, which is around 6ft high, was found alongside a cylindrical coffin in a chamber measuring 30 meters long by 8 meters wide.

The find has since been nicknamed the "pyramid of Zhengzhou."

Further details about the discovery are set to be revealed by archaeologists in the near future.

Pretty cool.   I think it should do more to emphasize that the pyramid shape is a basic shape than it should in lending credibility to those who say that pyramid shapes all over the Earth proves ancient interaction.

I think the arched tomb is more impressive honestly. The pyramid is just stacked blocks, but the arched tomb would have required a lot more thinking.

I like the way you think. I'm pretty sure I was one of those kids—roughly a thousand years ago—who was taught the Romans "invented" the arch in architecture. Are school kids still taught that anywhere? The Egyptians were building arches long before the Romans even existed, as were others. It's a particularly graceful form.

If you check out the second link to another story that was posted by Stiff, you'll see this picture: Look at the opening in the cylinder. I'd bet that this pyramid was built the same way. In other words, not stacked horizontal blocks. Harte

Just a note : An arch constructed and an arch cut/corbel out from the walls are two entirely different constructs ... A brief history walk through of the Arch   wiki link ~ wiki link ~
