Pyramid found – in the heart of Bosnia!!

could this be a pyramid in Bosnia?

Near the city of Visoko, 30 km north of Sarajevo, there is a stone pyramid of monumental size, claims the Bosnian archaeologist Semir Osmanagić, who lives and works in the USA.

After several months of geological and archaeological research, Mr. Osmanagić concluded that under the present hill of Visočica hides a stairs-like pyramid, about 12,000 years old.
Osmanagić, who intensively researched on pyramids in Americas, Asia and Africa for the last 15 years and wrote several books on the subject, says he’s quite sure he found the first pyramid in Europe, which is quite similar to ones in the Southern America.

He believes that the project would completely change Bosnia’s significance in the world of archaeology.

On the top of “Bosnian pyramid of Sun” was a temple, built by pre-Illyrians, people who lived, according to Osmanagić, 27,000 years ago.

Mr. Osmanagić thinks he will solve the “Bosnian pyramid of Sun” in the next five years, but also prove the existence of “Bosnian pyramid of Moon”, lying under the neighboring hill of Križž.

According to BBC, the leading Bosnian newspaper “Dnevni Avaz” writes:

“The pyramid is 100 meters high and there is evidence that it contains rooms and a monumental causeway … The plateau is built of stone blocks, which indicates the presence at the time of a highly developed civilization,” the daily explains.

“Archaeological excavations near the surface have uncovered a part of a wall and fragments of steps,” it reveals.

“Visocica hill could not have been shaped like this by nature,” geologist Nada Nukic tells the daily. “This is already far too more than we have anticipated, but we expect a lot more from further analysis,” she concludes.

    “Ronald,

    You need to take your head out of your ass and smell the fresh air.”

    Basing myself on the very low level of intellect you must have (considering the primitiveness of your reply), it is no wonder at all that you believe Osmanagic’s nonsense.

    By the way, it is Dino who decides who is welcome or not on his blog.

    Ronald.

  • This possibility of a Pyramid is not an invention, the guy is presenting evidence which will be confirmed (or not) after some time. We have to wait more as the digging progresses. Suppose they find a strong evidence, will the media remember the skeptics?

  • The only evidence that Osmanagic presents, is the evidence of his hunger for money.

    After all this time, still NO pyramid stripped from vegetation. You think this is normal ? We still don’t see any pyramid, just hills covered with vegetation. Osmanagic should have stripped one complete flank of his ridiculous ‘pyramid of the sun’. But he did not. Guess why …..

  • KING Said on August 27th, 2007;

    ‘RILANA you suck the piramid is real’

    Of course, King, you do not realize that 27.000 years ago, which is way back into the last Ice Age (Upper Paleolithic), Man was not capable yet to build mega-structures like pyramids, let alone there were sufficiënt numbers of individuals to accomplish such a huge task as constructing a pyramid.

    Study Human history before insulting reasonable people like Rilana.

    Ronald.

  • This has been probably mentioned before, but I’m not willing to read 900 comments at the moment…
    So, what makes me doubtful is the fact that Mr. Osmanagic thinks he is able to date that pyramid-shaped hill before the excavation! Even if it is a man-made pyramid, it is more probable from a later period, neolithic or bronze age or whatever. Without evidences he can’t say how old it is. And what about this damned “pyramid of sun” and “pyramid of moon” talking. If it were 27 000 years old, where does he take his informations about the religion of this time? As Ronald states this would be paleolithic, and we don’t know that much about paleolithic religion…
    I’m a student of prehistoric archaeology and I never heard of evidences for paleolithic sun or moon worshipping. It is possible of course, but possibility is no evidence

  • Nocturnus,

    What about the total absence of artefacts ? At least three ‘pyramids’, but no artefacts (pottery, tools, houses for workers, remnants of food, etc., etc.) ? There is no presence of a civilization, aged as Osmanagic claims.

    No, this is cheating. Osmanagic is a swindler and a cheater. If you have to cheat to win, you loose …

    Ronald.

  • you guys need to stop arguining!!! let the people do their job because if it looks like a pyramid then we need to find out if it is a pyramid or not. We have nothing to lose and I dont understand why everybody is against these pyramids. The world shoup pray to God that these pyramids are real becasue we can only gain from the pyramids. We can find out the truth about ourselves and our ansestors unless we are scared to do so than its best for us to live in ignorance. This is a great opprotunity for the world to dig up HISTORY and find out more about ourselves…STOP BEING ANTIPYRAMID!!! use your BRAINS and think whats best for the WORLD!!! lets say if the pyramids were not real which I strongly doubt but if they werent we still have nothing to lose…we can only learn from this experience..
    GO PYRAMIDS !!!!!

  • It is interesting to observe how hard it is for some people to digest that a small and poor country like Bosnia and Herzegovina has Worlds Largest Pyramids!

    What for a nice spectacle lol

    Shame on the Westerners who are against the project.

    It is interesting to observe how gullible, ignorant and utterly stupid people can be after all these years of ‘excavating’ …

    What I mean is simply this : show me the ‘Bosnian pyramids’ as stone-monuments (like the Egyptian and the Mexican etc.), not as hills that are, after all these years of ‘excavating’, still covered with vegetation …

    It has nothing to do with the ridiculous statement the world not wanting Bosnia to have no matter what. It has everything to do with the fact that Semir Osmanagic is a sly swindler who is making big money by deceiving gullible and ignorant people, like you, Lepsius. Pity you.

    And you are an agent of the debunking agency against the Bosnian pyramids, well paied and a big liar.

    How about that?

    Is it nice to be accused without proofs?

  • Lepsius,

    Show me the civilization that should have built the ‘Bosnian pyramids’, just as I can show you effortless the civilization that built the Egyptian pyramids. If you, ‘mr.’ Osmanagic or no matter who can’t demonstrate this, then it is all a big fraud. No civilization = no piramids.

    Ronald.

  • You said ” the civilization that built the Egyptian pyramids”

    Do your research….there are many good minds that doubt they know “who built the “Egyptian pyramids”…All I am saying is do not assume what you have been taught is correct…dig in and learn…

    ‘Do your research….there are many good minds that doubt they know “who built the “Egyptian pyramids”…All I am saying is do not assume what you have been taught is correct…dig in and learn…’

    My goodness !!! Did you know that in Khufu’s pyramid (I hope that at least you know that Khufu’s Great Pyramid is one of the three main pyramids at Giza …), in the relieving chambers above the King’s Chamber, they found the cartouche (= the name of a pharaoh) of pharaoh Khufu, who definitely was a ruler of the Ancient Egyptian 4th Dynasty ? The inscription says ‘year 17 of Khufu’s reign’.

    Furthermore, there is clear proof that the oldest known pyramid in Egypt indeed w s built by the Ancient Egyptians (Step Pyramid of Djozer, 2750 BC, Ancient Egyptian 3th Dynasty), and that all the succeeding pyramids EVOLVED out of it. This all is prooven by archaeological remnants.

    So, don’t tell me I should do research. Your are just one more person who ignores the facts, namely the unquestionable presence of the gradually developed Ancient Egyptian civilization.

  • Any discovery like this requires investigation and some conclusion, why get angry about it?

  • Ante Ivanda,

    This ‘discovery’ has been investigated by real scientists (Osmanagic and his ‘Foundation’ are not scientists, they are clowns) from the very beginning. They concluded there are no pyramids. Osmanagic uuses the peculiar natural formations to mislead gullible and ignorant people.

    Ronald.

  • Idetrorce,

    Ok, show me Bosnian pyramids, I mean real pyramids, not green hills …

    Ronald.

  • Ummm. . . . as an archaeology grad student, this guy is, for lack of better words, “full of shit.” I believe we would call this pseudoscience. Semir calls himself an archaeologist but he has no formal training in the science; he has simply “read up” on the subject. It would be like me not only asserting that I’m an M.D. after skimming through a biology 101 textbook, but then attempting to perform a triple bypass coronary surgery. This guy believes in crackpot theories like the lost city of atlantis, and every second he has access to this possibly valuable archeological site, the less data that can be substantiated by real methodology. He is destroying data by removing it from its context and presenting the information from a horribly distorted perspective.

    There was an article about him a couple years ago in Archaeology magazine so you might be able to find some information on him there.

  • Looks like a pyramid… actually might be a pyramid. Search the net for recent photos of the excavations, tunnels under the mound and reports from a geologist and other sciency people and an egyptologist (from egypt) who all say its man made. (well, something intelligent made it).

    Do you guys that ridicule the alien theory really think there isn’t other intelligent life out there? Have you actually trawled the net to find information on this type of thing?

    If you want to look at some amazing ancient structures on the net, find photos of the osirion and valley/khafre temples in egypt; the temples and hypogeum at malta; wayland smithy england; kofun in japan; megalithic structures on sardinia and the balaeric islands; pyramids on the canary islands; all the ancient stuff in Peru – particularly the fortress at ollantaytambo and sacsayahuam (cant spell); temple of the wari; batan grande pyramid; etc etc; (there is too much stuff in peru); long barrows in england; dolmen all over the world – russian dolmen; french dolmen; korean dolmen; irish dolmen; english dolmen; dolmen in jordan and india; find the standing stones in senegal/gambia; obelisks at axum ethiopia and rock cut churches; petra, jordan; the great enclosure at zimbabwe; dacian temples in albania; daorson fortress at stolac, bosnia; candi sukah pyramid in indonesia; pyramids in xian, china; yonaguni, japan; cairns and passage graves in france and so on… (there’s much much more). And if you still think cave men learnt how to use fire, then copper then bronze, then built the pyramids and megalithic fortresses (oh, mycenae and tiryns in greece; nekromanteoin; nemrut dagi, turkey; the dogon people and culture; cappadocia; mali; the troglodyte houses in tunisia; dolmen in tunisia) – and moved massive stones like the ones in egypt/stone henge, and peru; and cut them with lazer like precision, on a massive scale; at about the same time they invented bows and arrows and the wheel;..well, if you swallow that, i don’t know… Maybe you should look into it a bit more deeply instead of believing what you hear on tv and from so called experts. Don’t forget, most people were positive the earth was flat for a while. They were wrong.

  • There is an avalanche of archaeological evidence out there, and it’s getting larger every day. Archaeologists need to get with the program, and hire some actual scientists who might be able to analyse things without needing to fit everything into a preconceived notion about our past – (i.e. 10,000 years ago everyone was walking around in skins, and so on) – it’s just simply bad science to say something can’t be a pyramid because we don’t know what culture could have built it. First, is it a pyramid? If yes, then start looking for the culture. There’s actually mountains of evidence of a technologically advanced ancient culture out there to anyone who’s looked into it. Monuments like the pyramids and stonehenge don’t just appear out of no where. They are not the work of bronze age farmers. HA HA HA HA>!!!!!!…. . Ha.

    They also need to stop trying to discredit people who are able to think for themselves and therefore threaten pre-established notions. If archaeologists (and archaeology students) were doing their jobs properly, people from other sciences and disciplines wouldn’t need to get involved. It’s criminal the neglect that’s going on about our ancient past.

    Oh and people should check out the photos of pyramids at Gympie Australia on google earth; and also Rex Gilroy’s stuff about megalithic australia. I think the fallen menhir and gate of the moon have potential.

  • Correction – dacian temples are in Romania..

    If interested in Yonaguni, check out Qenko in Peru for similar type construction.

  • how is it he lives and works in the u.s.a and yet he found a pyramid?

  • I don’t know if this is real, but if it is i woiuld love to go see it…

  • Well I will start stating that I am an undergraduate student of Project management. I have only come across this since I have an assignment in critical thinking. Part of my assignment has me read the article and list off which is fact and which is opinion. Upon doing this I am to write a 3 paragraph paper on what I believe as to it being fact or opinion and why. I have only listed the items as fact or opinion to this point and am stunned as to it is all opinion based the way I have read it and understand it. I will paste in the assignment and would appreciate any input as to my findings on the opinion/fact aspect.

    Based on the facts and opinions that you have identified, do you believe there is a pyramid in Bosnia? Write at least three complete sentences for your answer and tell why or why not.

    I am not looking for anyone to do my work I merely do not understand how so many opinions can dictate for something to be found as fact by so many. If I have misread this article and am not see something as fact please show me my error and explain how it is a fact. Thank you for your time, consideration, and response.

  • As a Scientist and Educator, I have learned not to discount occurences without sufficient evidence to back up the discount. Secondly, history is replete with Civilization Hybridization(Uniting of one civilization with another) where-in a sharing of capabilities and advanced traits occured. Additionally, in the face of work achieved by men like Eric Von Daniken, establishing ExtraTerrestrial visitors having assisted early civilizations in their advancing developmental achievements, 1)Anonymous skepticism needs to be set aside along with 2)Ghost O’ Darb. All this being said, I feel our Archeological Postulator (Mr. Osmanagic) 1) the concept is in a phase just past hypothesis (requiring further investigation) and 2) approaching theoretical. In other words, his postulation regarding the Bosnian Pyramid and his explanation with respects to it’s chronological and physical (morphological) occurence, makes sence in the absence of other evidence not in presentation.

  • As a scientist and educator, I have learned and evolved the position, that until all the evidence is available, it is unwise to draw definitive conclusions. With reference to the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun/Moon discovery, that is the situation we have in presentation. Both Anonymous October 28,2005 and Ghost O’Darb same Date and year, have committed the same error. Mr. Sevir Osmangic an established and relatively credible archeologist(with established credentials), has rendered a postulation based upon evidence at hand. What we have is a hypothesis rapidly evolving into a theory. Lets examine some facts, that discredit our two skeptics. 1) Transplant procedures have been performed and are documented in a prehistoric Indian text called the Sushruta. Cro magnon Man dating at least back to the time of this pyramid if not before, were performing a major surgical procedure termed Trephination(a procedure whereby sections of the skull were removed for therapeutic reasons). Success (survival rate) was 80%. Add to this, the work done by Erick Von Danakin(Chariotts of the Gods and In Search of Ancient Astronauts ), theorizations regarding early civilizations having been assisted by Extra Terrestrial Beings in their advances and achievements. Finally, ancient history is replete with examples of Civilization Hybridization(where Civilizations and Societies have merged) with the positive consequences of mutually advancing their achievements. All these variables taken together, give Semir Osmangic’s postulation credibility.

  • Baseline: As a scientist and educator, I have evolved a line of practice which predicates not extrapolating definitive conclusions before all the evidence is available. Secondly, said evidence is acquired and presented in such a way, that it is permutatively correct. In this situation, the issue as to whether the object discovered by the archaeologist Semir Osmanagic in Bosnia(30km or 18.6mi north of Sarajevo)close to the city of Visoko, is indeed a pyramid. The information allowing for the correct conclusion is such that both inductive and deductive reasoning will be called for. Adjunctive information is available which allows for disregarding of the time period as a point of argument against the credibility(12000 years ago). 1)History is replete with examples of civilizatons and societies which have Hybridized(merged and shared traits). 2)The works of Erick Von Daniken(“Chariotts of the Gods” and “In Search of Ancient Astronauts”), which have established to within reasonable limits, that early man received assistance from Extra Terrestial beings in the development and advancement of their civilizations.3)The existence of a prehistoric Indian text(known as the Sushruta:which documents the successful performance of transplant procedures dating back 12,000years or more).4)The performance of a medical procedure (known as Trephination which involves selective removal of skull sections) by Cro Magnon man, with a post-operative survival rate of 80%,at a time which predates the emergence of Semir Osmanagic’s proclaimed pyramid. As to the credibility and authenticity of Semir’s find and whether or not it meets the criterion of a pyramid, these issues are supported by 1)an evaluation of his background of 15yrs involved in excavations having written and documented several comparative analyses on pyramids on the Americas/Asian/African continents.2)Further Support by the BBC and the Dnevni Avaz(both these agencies and Newspapers have documentation that the pyramid is 100meters in height and contains rooms and a monumental causeway.Additionally the plateau is constructed of stone blocks, indicating the presence at the time of a highly evolved civilization.3)Nada Nukik, a well known geologist testified that this structure(pyramid) could not have been shaped by nature.
    All the facts and evidence taken accumulatively, leaves very little room if any for disputation. My conclusion, the object near Visoko is a pyramid. Semir’s proclamation “the project will change Bosnia’s significance in the the world of archaeology.

  • Let’s be serious, first of all, nobody really has any facts about a pryamid even existing near the city of Visoko. Bosnian only claims there is. He only concluded that after months of research that under a hill, hides a pryamid approximately 12,000 years old.
    Ok then, you be the judge. I for one, would like more information and proof of this pyramid’s existance before believing it to be fact. This is almost like a paragraph about “Do You Believe in UFO’s”, because I say so? I said, he said, she says.
    Most people will believe anything you put before them, but without the scientific truth to back it up, I stand in wonder.

  • it does not really look like a pyramid to me it just look like a hill
