Egyptian civilization never ceases to astound scientists. Many ancient megalithic monuments and more have been uncovered in Egypt over time. This civilization was one of the most advanced at the time.
The Egyptians were extremely knowledgeable in mathematics and astronomy. Nabta Playa is undeniable proof that Egyptian culture possessed advanced astronomical understanding around 11,000 years ago. Nabta Playa is a relic of an ancient Egyptian urban city found in Egypt’s Nubian desert.
This area is home to the world’s biggest astronomical alignment. In 1974, Fred Wendorf, an anthropological expert from Texas, and a team of researchers uncovered these interesting ruins near Nabta Playa.
This group uncovered numerous megalithic monuments in the area, many of which were buried in the sand. The oldest pottery remnants known in Africa were unearthed in the same location. This celestial alignment, made up of thousands of megalithic monuments, is incredibly precise.
