Local Town gets behind Pyramid excavations 27 Jan 2008
The large Conferenec room of the City Hall in Visoko was filled to overflowing last week as 250 people from Visoko came to find out how the Pyramid
excavations at Visoko Valley will change their town. Semir Omanagic, who is heading up the project, talked about how the excavation work has progressed during the last three years and how jobs and income could be created by the project.
As well as presenting the work done to date on the excavations, Osmanagic discussed media interest in the excavations and growing support for the project which, he believes, will result in the world's biggest pyramid being confirmed at Visoko Valley.
He compared restoration work at Visoko to the work done by Mexican experts on the Toutihucan pyramid. While the project will take time to develop, it will bring regional economic benefits, said Osmanagic. The meeting was broadcast live on local television.
However, the Foundation Archaeological Park Bosnian Pyramid Of Sun that is responsibly for the excavation work is also facing its own difficulties. This includes changes in local laws that have made it more difficult for the excavation work at the Bosnian Pyramid of the sun to continue.
However, the Foundation will work with other cultural organisations to help to preserve Bosnian culture and history. One of its projects is the search for the grave of the Bosnian king Kulin Ban which is believed to be in the Visoko area.
The Foundation's work will continue during the winter months, clearing tunnels and strengthening them. The tunnels currently being explored lead inside the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, says Osmanagic. The Foundatiom believes these tunells are several kilometres long and that most are under the town of Visoko city and coneect all three pyramids.
Osmanagic wrote three years ago that these tunnels represent one of the most complex structures on the Planet Earth. To get the full picture of Who, When, and how these pyramids were built will require several decades, in order to put all the jigsaw pieces in place. He believes that the pyramids will show that intelligent human life existed in this region earlier than offical history is telling us.
The Foundation is open to all experts of orthodox science or alternative scientists, and asks that people who are coming to work at Visoko to
announce themselves to the Foundation and to share their findings with them.
The Mayor of Visoko was also at the meeting. He announced that the city of Visoko will give financial support for this project and will work closely with the Foundation. A new infrastructure will be introduced, including tourist offices, signs, parking, camps for visitors, information points (different languages), and offical tourist guides. The citizens of Visoko want hundreds of experts, students, lecturers and volunteers to come to Visoko to work on this project.

Bosnia’s pyramids are real, say experts 2 September 2007
Experts from Egypt have, for the second time, confirmed their belief that Visoko Valley is home to the biggest pyramid in the world. Speaking at a press conference in Sarajevo today, Sunday, the specialists said that the work now would begin into finding a place in our history books for these pyramids.Dr. Nabil M.A. Swelim from Egypt said, "This is an unbelievable discovery! It will take some time in order to understand the mystery of these amazing stone structures and how they have been built." He said that the pyramids remind him of the Red Pyramid in Egypt. Currently, our knowledge and understanding of pyramids around the world is limited but this recent discovery in Bosnia will play its part in shedding more light onto pyramids and their use – something that is still not clearly defined. Prof. Dr. Mona Fouad Aly, head of the Department for Archaeological Conservation at Cairo University, and Prof. Dr. Soleiman Hamed El Heweli, an expert in the field of Pharaonic periods, also expressed their opinions about the archaeological location in Visoko, Prof Dr. Mona Fouad Aly said, "Everything we have seen confirms the fact that the structures are the results of human intervention. Of course, more research, fieldwork and laboratory analysis will be necessary to ascertain who, when and why built these pyramidal structures. I have already taken several samples from different locations in Visoko to submit to our laboratory and will inform the Foundation APBPS about the results." Dr Soleiman Hameed also supports the Foundation in its ongoing work to uncover the secrets of Visoko Valley – but expressed the need for patience as it will take time and effort to do so. Looking ahead, however, this work could put Bosnia on the map of the world for the significance of this discovery.

Egyptian Scientist return to Visoko 31 August 2007
A group of leading experts on the Egyptian pyramids is visiting Bosnia and the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids for the second year. The scientists are visiting the site with the backing of the Egyptian Government and the Egyptian Ministry Of Culture.The group will spend around two weeks in Visoko, exploring the archaelogical sites in the valley. Dr M Fouad Ali, one of the group's leaders, said that the team will assist the Foundation in developing a plan to take forward the excavations in Visoko. One of the first sites visited by the group was the Ravne tunnel complex. Archaelogist Dr Soliman Hamid (University of Cairo), and part of the group, said that, if it is proved that the labyrinth of tunnels that the group saw at Ravne does in fact lead inside the hills towards the pyramids, then that will be a big step in proving the hypothesis that these are manmade tunnels linked to the pyramids. He added that the group acknowledged a number of similarities between the excavations at Visoko and the pyramid complex in Egypt.
