Slickdpdx clued me in on this:
A Sarajevo-born researcher said he has discovered an ancient pyramid in the hills of central Bosnia.
Semir Osmanagic said Visocica Hill, about 18 miles from Sarajevo, is actually a pyramid built by people who were the first inhabitants of the Balkans.
The researcher said the hill, which is about 2,300 feet high, is man-made.
The hill includes sandstone slabs 17 feet below the surface. Sandstone, he said, is not a naturally occurring rock in the area.
Osmanagic said he will use aerial and satellite imagery and underground radar studies of the area to prove his theory.
The video is here. The reporter says Osmanagic proposes that if this is indeed a pyramid, then it’s made by the Illyrians. If this somehow turns out to be true, that seems way too recent to me, as that’s only 1,000 BC. Looking at this timeline, i’d lay odds that it’s some other culture contemporaneous with the Minoans, but that’s just me making junk up. (They loved cyclopean work projects. Maybe a neighbor wanted to compete.)
Please note that there is an even wackier take on this story:
A team of American and Bosnian archaeologists claim to have found two new pyramids buried under hills in Central Europe.
The scientists say they found ancient labyrinths and other sand stone buildings under two unusually shaped hills in central Bosnia.
They believe the ruins indicate the hills were once human settlements, probably built by a stone age “super” civilisation tens of thousands of years ago.
They are now trying to locate ancient stairs that would lead them to the entry of the pyramids.
Two pyramids? Labyrinths? Stairs?
