Bosnia Pyramids Complex older 20,000 more

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.

A new analysis of two 7.2 million-year-old fossils belonging to a hominin species nicknamed “El Graeco” from Mediterranean Europe, suggests that mankind emerged in Europe and not in Africa. The new study could reshape history, since it openly challenges the “out of Africa theory.”

In 1526, the Spanish conquistador Francisco de Montejo arrived on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico and found most of the great Maya cities deeply eroded and unoccupied. Many generations removed from the master builders, engineers, and scientists who conceived and built the cities, the remaining Maya they encountered had degenerated into waring groups who practiced blood rituals and human sacrifice.

Our Mission

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. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
