On Wednesday, the digging revealed large stone blocks on one side that the leader of the team believes are the outer layer of the pyramid.<br><br>"These are the first uncovered walls of the pyramid," said Semir Osmanagic, a Bosnian archaeologist who studied the pyramids of Latin America for 15 years.<br><br>Osmanagic said Wednesday's discovery significantly bolsters his theory that the 650-meter (2,120-foot) hill rising above the small town of Visoko is actually a step pyramid — the first found in Europe.<br><br>"We can see the surface is perfectly flat. This is the crucial material proof that we are talking pyramids," he said.<br><br>Osmanagic believes the structure itself is a colossal 220 meters (722 feet) high, or a third taller than Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza.<br><br>The huge stone blocks discovered Wednesday appear to be cut in cubes and polished.<br><br>"It is so obvious that the top of the blocks, the surface is man made," Osmanagic said. He plans to continue the work throughout the summer, "after which the pyramid will be visible," he said.<br><br>Earlier research on the hill, known as Visocica, found that it has perfectly shaped, 45-degree slopes pointing toward the cardinal points, and a flat top. Under layers of dirt, workers discovered a paved entrance plateau, entrances to tunnels and large stone blocks.<br><br>Satellite photographs and thermal imaging revealed two other, smaller pyramid-shaped hills in the Visoko Valley.<br><br>Last week's excavations began with a team of rescue workers from a nearby coal mine being sent into a tunnel believed to be part of an underground network connecting the three pyramid-shaped hills.<br><br>They were followed by archeologists, geologists and other experts who emerged from the tunnel later to declare that it was certainly man-made.<br><br>The work will continue for about six months at the site just outside Visoko, about 30 kilometers (20 miles) northwest of the capital, Sarajevo. Two experts from Egypt are due to join the team in mid-May.<br><br>"It will be a very exciting archaeological spring and summer," Osmanagic said. <p></p><i></i>

You got better pictures than I did.<br><br>Extremely interesting story.<br>Always wondered if there's a link between the pyramids and the mound builders.<br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.factmonster.com/ce6/sci/A0834239.html">www.factmonster.com/ce6/s...34239.html</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--> <p></p><i></i>

Egyptians on the Adriatic?

Postby starroute » Fri Apr 21, 2006 11:24 pm

I've been rereading parts of Martin Bernal's "Black Athena" lately. He suggests that both pyramid-like structures and very early major irrigation projects in Greece may date from the mid-third millenium BC and be evidence of Egyptian influence at that time. <br><br>I've also been trying to figure out the DNA evidence from that area. There are two Y-chromosome types in Greece and the Balkans that are definitely of non-European origin. One, J2, which is found all around the Black Sea, probably originated in Kurdistan and spread in association with agriculture. It is very common in central Anatolia and also fairly frequent in both Greece and India. My guess it that its western expansion could have been connected with the Black Sea flood of 5400 BC.<br><br>The other, E3b, is more mysterious. It may have originated in eastern Africa (it accounts for 70% of Ethopians) and been associated with the spread of the Afro-Asiatic languages. It's common in parts of the Middle East (Yemen, Iran, Lebanon), but not so much in the northern areas where J2 is dominant. E3b and J2 are both common among Jews -- but the majority of Cohens are J2. All this suggests that E3b was a relatively late arrival in the Middle East and could not have reached Greece in connection with the Neolithic the way J2 probably did. <br><br>However, perhaps the most interesting thing about E3b is that in the Balkans it is concentrated in Kosovo -- and secondarily among Albanians and Italians. In short, it does not appear likely that it could have arrived from Anatolia at any point. An introduction by sea via the Adriatic would seem to be indicated instead. But when and how could such an immigration have taken place, especially with sufficient numbers and/or status to have made a significant contribution to the local gene pool?<br><br>My money, at the moment, is on Bernal's Egyptians of c. 2500 BC. For that reason, I'm finding this developing Bosnian pyramid story of particular interest. <p></p><i></i>
