Bible and archaeology news
The Sedeigna pyramids were built over the course of centuries, as kings built more and more structures within the confines of the necropolis, resulting in the density witnessed today. Discovered alongside graves, the pyramids are up to 22 feet wide, though their height is difficult to gauge, as the decorated capstones have been quarried away. The Nubian pyramids reflect Egyptian funerary architecture, and an offering table found at the Sedeinga includes a dedication to Isis, Anubis and Osiris for a woman referred to as “Aba-la.”
