3000-year-old "pyramid" discovered in NE China

Six smaller tombs had eroded away leaving no indications of their original scale and appearance, but the biggest tomb, located on the south side of the mountain, could clearly be discerned as a pyramid shape with three layers from bottom to top.

(Via The Daily Grail.)

Yet another example of ancient artificial structures passing for natural until on-site investigation. Paradoxically, Mars boasts features that, despite appearing quite unnatural, are excluded from archaeological consideration because of the inconvenient fact that they exist on another planet.
