An article about the Bosnian pyramids appears in month’s issue of Smithsonian Magazine, this is the first time I’ve heard about this investigation, and it is incredibly exciting. Semir Osmanagic claims that there are several pyramids now hidden beneath hills about 15 miles northwest of Sarajevo that could be more than 12,000 years old. That is an extremely early date for monuments of the estimated size that these pyramids are. The official “Pyramid of the Sun” website posts up to date news and photographs of the archaeological site. A large scale investigation is set for this summer dig season and volunteers have been requested. Another website worth checking out is www.bosnianpyramid.com which has also posted reports done by specialist who have analyzed geographical and satellite imagery of the terrain.
At this point in time I have no opinion of whether there are truly pyramids in Bosnia, I haven’t seen all the evidence and will wait until the results from the large scale dig next summer to make a judgment. Many archaeologists simply refuse to believe there are massive 12,000 year old pyramids in Europe. Although it is not entirely impossible, we cannot get too excited about this discovery just yet (but it is exciting isn’t it?). It is possible that the hills are just naturally shaped like pyramids, but there are a growing number of people who are starting to think otherwise.
