Pyramid Discovered in Bosnia?



April 20, 2006—Could this hill be hiding Europe's first known pyramid?

Amateur archaeologist Semir Osmanagic recently announced that he has uncovered proof that a four-sided hill in the town of Visoko, Bosnia, is an ancient manmade structure.

On Wednesday Osmanagic said he and his team unearthed large, cut stone slabs on a side of the hill that form the outer surface of an ancient pyramid (see inset photo).

"These are the first uncovered walls of the pyramid," Osmanagic told the Associated Press. "We can see the surface is perfectly flat. This is the crucial material proof that we are talking pyramids."

very interesting! a good number of pyramids in guatemala look fairly similar, covered over with foliage & looking like ordinary hills.

looks like one or two of the other hills in the background of that picture look very similar to the main one....

Which could indicate their similar geological setting, there are those remarkable underwater features that look like remants of lost cities but are the result of cooling magma.

Step pyramid in Europe
It's nice to see a non-bush/religion thread in here for once. I will try and say something thought-provoking to maybe help it keep going.

12,000 years ago is right at the end of the last ice age... I have trouble buying that. I'm always a skeptical when an archaeologist says ancient people in his own native country did something thousands of years before anyone else. I'm also a little concerned with the way it looks like they're excavating it, but I'll just assume I'm not seeing the whole story in the pictures... though I guess it's better than the looters finding it
looters
museums who buy things from looters
and then won't give it back to the country from whence it came

I'm also confused as to why Egyptian scientists are coming in to help.

It looks like there's some farms on that hill, I wonder what will happen to the people who own that land. I don't know about laws in Bosnia... in the US for the most part, if it's on private property it's yours, but I know other places in Greece if you find an ancient site the government takes the land away from you (with apparently minimal compensation).
