    Is the Bosnian Hill Actually an Ancient Pyramid?

    Is Bosnian hill actually an ancient pyramid?
    Archaeologists study mound — but hold off from conclusions

    VISOKO, Bosnia-Herzegovina - With eyes trained to recognize pyramids hidden in the hills of El Salvador, Mexico and Peru, Semir Osmanagic has been drawn to the mound overlooking this central Bosnian town.

    "It has all the elements: four perfectly shaped slopes pointing toward the cardinal points, a flat top and an entrance complex," he said, gazing at the hill and wondering what lies beneath.

    No pyramids are known in Europe, and there is no evidence any ancient civilization there ever attempted to build one.

    But Osmanagic, a Bosnian archaeologist who has spent the last 15 years studying the pyramids of Latin America, suspects there is one here in his Balkan homeland.

    "We have already dug out stone blocks which I believe are covering the pyramid," he said. "We found a paved entrance plateau and discovered underground tunnels. You don't have to be an expert to realize what this is."

    Osmanagic, 45, who now lives in Houston, is personally financing excavations at the Visocica hill, a 2,120-foot (646-meter) hump outside Visoko, a town about 20 miles (32 kilometers) northwest of the capital, Sarajevo.

    He learned about the hill in April from Senad Hodovic, director of a museum devoted to the history of Visoko, which is rich in Bronze Age and medieval artifacts. Hodovic had attended a promotion of an Osmanagic book about ancient civilizations and thought he would like to see Visoko's pyramid-shaped hill.

    When the pair climbed the hill, the sweeping view revealed a second, smaller pyramid-shaped hill. It reminded Osmanagic of pairs of pyramids he has seen in Latin America that together create a gateway into a valley.

    15 anomalies found

    After obtaining a permit to research the site, which is protected by the state as a national monument, the first probes of the main hill were carried out this summer at six points. Nadja Nukic, a geologist involved in the research, said she found 15 anomalies suggesting that some layers of the hill were human-made.

    "We found layers of what we call 'bad concrete,' a definitely unnatural mixture of gravel once used to form blocks with which this hill was covered," Osmanagic said.

    "The hill was already there," he added. "Some ancient civilization just shaped it and then coated it with this primitive concrete — and there you have a pyramid."

    Small-scale excavations continued until early November, when winter set in, with the work focusing on what Osmanagic theorizes may have been the entrance to a pyramid-shaped temple.

    Built by Illyrians?
    Osmanagic believes the hill was shaped by the Illyrian people, who inhabited the Balkan peninsula long before Slavic tribes conquered it around A.D. 600. Little is known about the Illyrians, but Osmanagic thinks they were more sophisticated than many experts have suggested.

    Nukic, who has walked up and down the hill several times, said she noticed symmetrical platforms in the slopes — indentations that Osmanagic believes are steps built into the pyramid.

    A local businessman who bought a lot at the foot of the hill and brought in a bulldozer to dig the foundation for a house, meanwhile, unearthed manmade sandstone plates that the archaeologists think may have been paving stones.

    Anthropologists say the Visoko valley already offers ample evidence of organized human settlements dating back 7,000 years. The town was Bosnia's capital during the Middle Ages, and German archaeologists working the valley recently found 24,000 Neolithic artifacts just three feet below the surface.

    ‘No fast conclusions, please’
    Osmanagic is taking a cautious approach about the hill.

    "No fast conclusions, please. The evidence has to be firm, at least beyond a reasonable doubt," he said.

    "Not that I don't believe in a pyramid here," he added. "This place was always called 'Pyramid' by the local population. But we have to prove that this is not a natural shape."

    He thinks, however, that the shape of the hill speaks for itself.

    "God can make many things, but such perfectly geometrically formed slopes, pointing exactly toward the north, south, east and west — if he did that, well, that's phenomenal itself."

    At first this pyramid was said to be 12,000 years old. Then, it was revised to 3,000 years old. How was this dating done--or has dating been done?

    Bosnian Pyramid?

    Comrades,

    Here we go again. An archaeologist so desperate to make a name for himself, has deluded himself into seeing dragons where there exist but windmills.
    Once again an unusual naturally ocurring geologic formation exhibiting geometric patterns easily attributable to natural geophysical processes, have been credited to some ancient advanced civilisation.

    The discoverers have described this alleged archaeological site as having been built by a pre-Illyrian People circa 28,000 B.C.
    To say that would be pre-Illyrian is quite an understatement.

    Maybe this Bosnian Pyramid was built by refugees from Atlantis or some far off extra terrestrial civilisation?

    Archaeologists who see archaeology where it does not exist, have a psychological disorder akin to the thousands of tone deaf would be vocalists who audition for American idol under the misapprehension they can sing.

    But i suppose there will always exist the romanticists among us who will see the hand of man in such formations as the Bimini road, and the fantastical Submerged city of the lost civilisation of Mu, off the coast of Okinawa.

    Here is a link to a picture and a brief article relating to the Bosnian 'pyramid.'
    http://dino.avdibeg.dk/blog/2005/10/...of-bosnia.html

    Maybe i'm just a natural born sceptic. Maybe it's real.
    It certainly would be a fascinating and provocative discovery.
    Can't hurt the Bosnian tourism industry.

    Best wishes,
    _Gaian Meroveus.

    Definately a Pyramid.

    If it isn't a pyramid, You won't hear any objections from the Jews.
    If it is, Expect a quick dismissal of it being a pyramid from the contemporary archaeological community.

    I find it interesting that the earth has completely formed over this structure. Is it possible it was a planned occurance? Like laying a sod-like covering over the sides and top so very long ago? I can't imagine that the earth would have naturally grown upward over it.

    And how come no one noticed this before?

    Comrades,

    I have no doubt our resident Skadi geologists could easily explain away these Bosnian 'pyramids' as naturally occurring phenomena.

    Re: Bosnian Pyramid?

    And what about the maze of tunnels? ( http://www.bosnianpyramid.com/images/tunnel_orig.jpg ). Im sure they're a natural phenomenon too.. I hope these "hills" are confirmed to be man-made pyramids.. I also hope they're older then the Egyptian ones.. (no reason )..

    Re: Bosnian Pyramid?

    Comrades,

    If these turn out to be made made objects, it will be the greatest archaeological discovery of all time, and will have implications reaching far beyond the discipline of Archaeology.

    The great pyramid of Khufu dates to only circa 2530 B.C. and the megalithic tombs of western europe 4500 B.C.

    So you can imagine the implications if this turned out to be a 27,000 year old man made structure.
    I'll reserve judgement until i see the enevitable documentaries on Public television.

    Best wishes,
    _GM.
