Pyramids In Russia?

BARNAUL, Western Siberia -- A Russian news agency reported Monday that archaeologists claim to have discovered funeral pyramids in the remote Altai territory of Siberia.

The step pyramids, similar to Latin American ones, were found last summer in the Sentelek Valley of the Charysh district, Interfax said.

Subsequent research has found that the structures date to the fourth century B.C., Pyotr Shulga, head of the Inheritance scientific research center, was quoted as saying.
