Tuesday Tussle is a new post that I will be doing every now and then on a Tuesday. The aim is to have some fun and to vote for one of the Tuesday Tussle’s candidates. It will be archaeology and history related.

The last Tuesday Tussle was Zahi Hawass vs Tom Huffman vs Mick Aston:

And the winner:
It was a tie! Between Mick Aston and  Tom Huffman who both got 40% of the votes!

Now for the fourth Tuesday Tussle: Egyptian vs Greek vs Mexican Pyramids

Which of these pyramids are you favorite?

We have all seen the Egyptian pyramids, and not just the Pyramids of Giza, but all the various ones scattered around Egypt. They are majestic and a true wonder!

The Greek Pyramids are a bit more of a mystery to some of us. They are also called the Pyramids of Argolis and are much smaller than those in Egypt. You can read a bit more about them here and here.

The Mexican pyramids are beautiful structures that were constructed by the Mayans and Aztecs as well as other cultures in the area. They are normally step pyramids with temples on top.

Which Pyramids do you think deserve to win this Tuesday Tussle?

Happy Voting!
