Bosnian Pyramid complex pushes back timelines of civilization by 20,000 years

New research conducted by Dr Sam Osmanagich has revealed that organic material recovered from inside the Pyramid of the Sun dates back 29,200 years which, if proven correct, would force the world to reconsider its understanding of the development of civilization and history, accepted to have occurred around 9,000 years ago.

The Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids is a complex of 4 ancient pyramids located in the fertile Visoko River Basin 40km N/W of Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina. First discovered in 2005 by Dr Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D. and in its 8th year of excavation, four pyramids have been identified- Pyramids of the Sun, Moon, Dragon and Love along with an associated occupation site called the Temple of Mother Earth and a subterranean pyramid tunnel complex covering approximately 6 square kilometres.

“The ancient people who built these pyramids knew the secrets of frequency and energy. They used these natural resources to develop technologies and undertake construction on scales we have not seen before on Earth,” said Dr Osmanagich.

The date of 29,000 years was obtained from a piece of organic material retrieved from a clay layer inside the outer casing to the pyramid which underwent radiocarbon dating. It follows a sample date obtained during the 2012 dig season on material located above the concrete at 24,800 years.

Despite eight years of excavations and numerous significant findings, some scientists remain convinced that the structure is a natural formation that just happens to have a pyramid shape.  In order to rule out this possibility, Dr Osmanagich continues to use the latest scientific methods and technologies to analyse every aspect of the site. 

Sceptics are free to see for themselves - visitors are welcome to the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids and its Foundation offers a volunteer program each dig season- running June to September.

El Tajin is a Mesoamerican archaeological site located in the North of the state of Veracruz, near the Gulf Coast of Mexico. The city, one of the most flourishing of the Classic and early Post-classic period, was only rediscovered in 1785, immediately capturing the imagination of European travelers with its imposing jungle-covered ruins and unusual architecture.

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings.
