European expert denies pyramid is manmade 10 June 2006

 

Anthony Harding, head of the European Association of Archaeologists and a professor of archaeology at the University of Exeter in Britain, has claimed that the pyramidal formations found at Visoko are natural rather than man-made structures.

Harding made a brief visit to Visoko – he is reported to have spent just 15 minutes at the site, on his own - prior to announcing his conclusions in Sarajevo. He is reported as saying, “My opinion and the opinion of my colleagues is what we saw was entirely geological in nature.” He added, “You’d be surprised how many natural stone formations can look as if they are man-made.”

His statement is, however, opposed by a number of reputed international specialists, including Egyptian geologist Aly Abd Alla Barakat of the Egyptian Mineral Resources Authority, who has more than 20 years of experience working on the pyramids in Egypt. He has concluded that the structure is a pyramid similar to those found in Egypt.

Barakat pointed to a number of factors to support his conclusion, including the fact that the sides of the hill are “precisely oriented” towards the four points of the compass and that stone slabs discovered at the site have been “polished by man”. The white substance between the bocks has also been compared to an early form of concrete, similar to that we have found in the Giza pyramids.

UNESCO director-general Koichiro Matsuura promised to send soon a group of UNESCO archaeological experts to investigate the find.

 

 

Prof.Dr.Ric.Geol. Dario Andretta Chairman of
Humanitarian Universitas for the Multidisciplinary International Culture, Rome, Italy. Recently he is awarded with ‘The accademia dei lincei’. It’s reward for his studies in geology  utilizing the historical and archaeological informantions. He will be in charge of Geological program on the site.

‘ my impressions that we have something big that we need to investigate more, this is something big from the archaeological and geological view , I feel that is something huge here ‘

 


New excavation sites open (Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon)

1 June 2006

New excavations started this week on the bottom of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon. Initial  work was rewarded  after digging only  40-80 cm deep into ground. Blocks and  slabs (15 cm thick) found. It's confirmed: these blocks are handmade and finely polished. White mix (ancient cement) is   been used to adhere the blocks together. Same mix (white) is used on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun.
At the moment there are around 400 people volunteering on this project on the daily basis. People are from all over the world and many others are announcing their visit and help at Visoko site. This becoming biggest Archaeological project this year in the world.

He called them the Pyramid of Mother Earth and the Pyramid of Love.

 

pyramid theory 16 May 2006

Leading geologists from Egypt have confirmed that the pyramidal structure discovered near the town of Visocica is indeed a pyramid. Dr Aly Abd Barakat (an expert on Egyptian pyramids) visited two areas of excavation - the north and east faces - at the structure, which is now known as the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. His conclusions about the blocks on the eastern face is that they are of a similar construction to those found
in Egyption pyramids - the blocks are handmade and polished; in Egypt, stones were polished to reflect the sunlight. Barakat also believes that the blocks, 4m x 1.5m in size, were brought here from a different location. Some of the blocks in the eastern face of the pyramid have been laid on top of each other, to a depth of four blocks. This gives some
indication of the massive size of the ancient construction. After studying excavations on the north side of the pyramid, Barakat concludes that the blocks here are handmade and have been created using a mould to form the blocks, which consist of an ancient 'concrete'-like mix. He also noticed a white line some 0.5cm thick between the blocks, indicating a cement-like substance has been used to adhere
the blocks together. A similar method has been seen in the construction of the Egyptian pyramids. Barakat went on to visit another excavation site located at the base of Pljesevica Hill, which is named the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon.
He concludes that the 'steps' that form the sides of this pyramid are made by human hands. Some 20m above this part of the
excavations, he noticed a large number of blocks placed symetrically, proving they too are manmade.
