Over 255 pyramids, used as tombs for Kings and Queens, were built in the Nile Valley, around the year 300BCE. The best preserved of these pyramids are located in the former Kingdom of Meroe. While taking influence from the Egyptian Pyramids north of the Kingdom, the pyramids found in Meroe differ by featuring a steeper incline, and a narrower base.
Treasure hunting excavations were held here in the 1800′s, with jewels and antiques from the pyramids now on display in museums in Berlin and Munich.
Through the heat and the sand The Panther prowled through the rugged Nubian Desert. The king was in search of a falling object that he witness the night before. He wasn’t sure what it was, but ever since the Chitari attacked New York nothing falling from the sky could be good. He need to secure it before any of the warring factions in Sudan could find it.
He searched through the sand and waves of heat. He saw something gleam on the side of a dune. A glint of sliver stood out among the golden sand. “Akili I think I found it tell the others to meet me at my location.” T'Challa said into his helmets intercom.
He climbed up the dune to see a craft of some kind it was the size of a suv. He walked around it trying to find an opening or window. It definitely wasn’t Chitari, he concluded on further inspection of the ship. He climbed on top of the craft and found a hatch with glass so he could see in. Inside the cockpit he saw what he thought was a woman. They looked human with long brown hair covering there face and porcelain skin. He saw her moving slowly barely conscious. He ripped off the hatch and shout into the cockpit. “Can you hear me, Are you injured?” @belladonna-of-thraneal
