Sudan: Amazing drone footage of Nubian Pyramids

Nubia Pyramids

Armed with a remotely operated mini­-helicopter, National Geographic engineer Alan Turchik gets a bird’s­-eye view of 3,000-­year-­old royal burial chambers. The unique perspective is helping to unravel ancient Nubian mysteries.

The part of the site that draws the most attention is the underground burial chamber of a Nubian king who conquered Egypt in 715 B.C., but today the action is far above ground as National Geographic engineer, Alan Turchik, flies a remote-controlled quadcopter camera over the site to gain a broader perspective of the area.

Turchik is part of an expedition led by National Geographic grantee, Geoff Emberling, the first archaeologist to visit the site in El Kurru, Sudan, in almost 100 years.

The mystifying ruins date back to the kingdom of Kush, an empire that lasted for over 2000 years before its disappearance around 300 A.D.
