Pyramid discovered in Bosnia near Sarajevo
bosnia's leading muslim daily dnevni avaz writes excitedly about "a
sensational discovery" of "the first european pyramid" in the
central town of visoko, just north of sarajevo.
excavations at a hill site above the town have been going on for
several months and initial analyses "have confirmed the original
claim that this is europe's first pyramid and a monumental building,
similar in dimensions to the egyptian pyramids."
"the pyramid is 100 metres 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 civilisation," 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.
