Discovery of New Prehistoric Underground Tunnels at Bosnian Pyramids

Exclusive: Discovery of New Prehistoric Underground Tunnels at Bosnian Pyramids

(Read the article on one page)

Ten years of scientific and archaeological investigation of the Bosnian pyramids have brought many exciting moments as well as dramatic turnovers which are seeking the redefining of our knowledge about history.

One such breakthrough happened in April 2015. During the six-months of cleaning and passing through new sections of the prehistoric underground tunnels, which had been discovered some time ago, the employees of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation were faced with various difficulties. During the winter of 2014 and spring of 2015, they hardly won new meters of tunnel. In one moment, in February 2015, one branch of the tunnel which leads to the South, toward the Bosnian pyramid of Sun, ended with a huge rock.

We decided to go around the rock by using side passageways. Like many other tunnels which we already discovered, these were packed with fill-out material (gravel and sand). Two side passages, to the East and West, ended in conglomerate material after about ten meters. We tried one more direction but that one didn’t led us to the desired result as well.

Then we decided to go around a large rock by digging a tunnel around it. Employees carried out this activity carefully, constantly checking the stability of the material, and checking measurements of oxygen and carbon dioxide. After thirty meters, the rock was bypassed.

Discovery of New Tunnels

I was in Houston when they told me that they discovered a new tunnel behind the rock.  It was a new section, without any fill-in material, but was submerged underwater. I made the decision that workers should stop the work and wait for my return to Bosnia.

I formed a team of six members for the first scientific screening of the newly discovered sections.

This was not the first time that we had found open sections in which the human foot had not entered for a long period of time. It is a special feeling for every researcher and the moment when dreams come true.

Every time when the investigators have found prehistoric underground tunnels in Egypt, Mexico, China or Peru, those were often the world’s attractions and leading news which were shared across all media.

In our case, we have already explored many sections of tunnel made by intelligent hands in the distant past. So far, we have discovered 1,550 meters.

Exploration of the New Tunnels

The day of entry in the new section of the tunnel finally came. On April 30, 2015, with full protective equipment, rubber boots and waterproof suits, lamps, and compasses, we were ready for adventure. 

Working in the tunnels of the Bosnian Pyramid

The team consisted of the following members:

  • Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Discoverer and Principal Investigator of Bosnian Pyramids
  • Anela Preljević, Archaeology (UCL London) and Foundation’s field archaeologist
  • Mejra Kozlo, B.C. in Geology and Foundation’s field geologist of Foundation
  • Engineer Osman Buza, assistant of Cantonal Minister for Economy
  • Jock Doubleday, videographer and PR Director of the Foundation
  • Edo Građan, employee of the Foundation

Working in the tunnels of the Bosnian Pyramid

We went to the left side, heading towards the West. The height of the tunnel is around 110-120 cm. We started walking in a bent over position. I led the team. The tunnel was filled with water 20 cm deep. In some places it reached 30 cm. We found three dry sections, without water. We were looking left and right, there weren’t side passages. On the pebble floor we did not see tools or artifacts. There were no traces of burning on either the walls or the ceiling. We found some interesting elongated pieces of stone that our archaeologist Anela took for analysis.

Finally, the tunnel ended. A dry section with pebbles at the end had a round pool fifty centimeters in radius and fifty centimeters in depth. The water was clear and clean. We gave the first statement to the camera and turned back. Osman and Edo measured the length of this part of the tunnel. It was 41 meters long.

We went back to the entrance. We agreed to visit a section in the opposite direction. I said to Jock to go first and to record while the water is clear. Behind him were Anela and Meira, then Osman, Edo and me. We moved to the East. After a few meters we came to the first intersection. It has led exactly in the direction of the South. I liked that because it is the direction of the Pyramid of Sun. The tunnel, which was open, ran for about three meters before being filled with gravel material to the ceiling. We were stopped there and took a photo.


This has already been debunked by many scientists/geologists as a natural formation. The supposed infill
has been proven to be natural and not man made, these people digging without proper support through the sand and gravel are so lucky not to be buried alive as there is no structural integrity.

If you watch   the video you’ll see that these tunnels were already there. They did not dig them at all. The debunkers cannot deny this. Some people have closed minds and blindly believe mainstream archaeologists’ theories and assumptions. An open mind is healthy and lends itself to the joys of new discoveries. I’m tired of people who constantly deny anything that’s not written in the old text books. There’s an amaziing world beneath our feet that we know little about. The new thinkers believe that a civilization far greater than ours existed many millenia ago. Go read some of Graham Hancock's books.


People want to deny these pyramids but forget how long other underground pyramids were debunked, some taking 30 years to prove

That's right, UrlyBird...And we are on the verge of destruction once again. There is nothing new under the sun. You would think that perhaps we could learn from history that life, and civilizations, are very fragile things. Perhaps the last civilization knew that and that's why they built large structures that not only were beautiful, functional, sturdy, but said "We were here".

Hmmm, why should the filler material be man made? The tunnels were filled with material from the river bed. Actually, probably you have learned more about this subject since 2015 so I will leave it there...

I’ve been following this strange discovery for a few years and YouTube provides two very good segments for and several against it. However, the first few years of evidence was a bit poor and no one was willing to take the challenge that it could be true. But again let’s not forget that mainstream archaeologists also believe the Pyramids were built in 20 years using stone tools.

My goodness, These poor fossils of Trolls in the outdated "official archaeological societies", That i REFUSE to label in the branch of sciences, as there is no blinder group of hypocrites on Earth, than these Archaeologists!!! who dares to claim they live a Professional life of science, yet teach a illogical belief as truth, and human history?!?! you troll's who dwell in the halls of outdated institutions living on a flat planet earth, 2D mentality, stuck on the floor of your 3D closed box mind. something like a calculator running on faulty software, and despite the information coming towards you, the only equation that the software can run, is a multiplication factor zero. thus all you spit out, equals NOTHING! aka, The egyptian pyramids were built by who? oh, jewish slaves? And you have found evidence of this? oh, no you haven't. okay.... oh, the information you regurgitate came from the bible... cool, very scientific. AND HOW WERE THESE PYRAMIDS BUILT? oh, with COPPER TOOLS, AND POUNDING STONES?? really? and you have found evidence of this? OF COURSE NOT BECAUSE ITS IMPOSSIBLE!? CORRECT! Because if you ask a geologist, a physicist, an engineer, a mathematician, a chemist, or a biologist. EVERY SINGLE FIELD OF SCIENCE WILL TELL YOU THAT THEIR ASPECTS OF SCIENCE REGARDING THE OFFICIALLY TAUGHT NARRATIVE OF EGYPTIAN PYRAMID BUILDING IS IMPOSSIBLE!!! Like honestly here folks? How is Mainstream Archaeology still considered academic, honest, intelligent, or scientific? and These Professors? are They seriously considered scientists? Because, if they have any intelligence whether common, or books, all of them combined, COLLECTIVELY must have not taken a single other science class in their entire educational degrees, as they ignore all aspects of every field in them to accept their historical beliefs. I actually cannot Believe the stupidity. guys, if you believe in science, try questioning things that don't make sense, and apply scientific theory to it, test it, and realize most books are fiction. to confirm a fact, well, SEEING IS BELIEVING!!! To the oxyMORON calling himself, but lacking any... "common (NON)sense"... Answer me this champ. Dolemite and Granite, moh's hardness scale of 7.5-8.5, Copper chisel moh's hardness of 3... hahahaha how'd they carve those blocks at giza? are you going to claim they had stone pounding rocks? impossible!! they'd have to have a moh's hardness of greater than 8.5.... so that leaves.... A GIANT DIAMOND SMASHING TOOL? hahaha, yeah right.... or we'll even give you the benefit of the doubt, use common nonsense, and u have your MAGICAL pounding rock. STILL IMPOSSIBLE TO SHAVE/CARVE/CUT those PRECISE dolomite and granite megalithic blocks that way!!! the Blocks smooth surfaces and ex\ct angles needed high energy and precision tools to accomplish. this is a FACT DUE to the GEOLOGICAL FEATURES of the 2 TYPES of stones' CLEAVAGE and FRACTURE ANGLES AND MOHS HARDNESS LEVEL!!!! what would common sense than imply? (SHERLOCK HOLMES QUOTE). OR<< fact, today's technology would struggle with lifting the mass of some of those blocks, and that's with powered engines running cranes...... what would common sense tell you? or, please answer how, the pyramids' corners are aligned to true north by 1/64th of a degree, Factor in 2,200,000 stone blocks (all weighing a minimum of a ton to boot), which gives you a build with a construction accuracy of (1/64/2,200,000= too intense for us to even fathom achieving today), what does common sense lead you to on that one champ??? Dear Dr Sam Semir Osmanagich, Ph.D, Thank you for continuing your amazing work and research of humanity's past, while freely giving the information back to humanity presently. You SIR, ARE A GOOD MAN!! ignore all these jealous, nonsensical fossil naysayers. waste no precious time or energy on a class of dying trolls who's dark caverns and caves are being brought to light, angering them. the receding shadows creating panic amongst them with an imminent extinction facing these old vampires and bloodsucking parasites of a dinosaur era long past!!! One LOVE, BC BERNIE

I have visited the Pyramids and can assure you that it is physically impossible for running water to carve a tunnel with a supporting arch, straight sides and a flat floor. I have personally seen carved artifacts in the rubble that has been removed from the caves.

I don't mean to burst your bubble here, but I am not following your argument. That the Bosnian pyramids are anthropogenic because the contemporary academic theory about how the Egyptian pyramids were constructed is wrong, is not a logical conclusion. I am not saying that they are or that they aren't, but discrediting a very broad group of people about a distant, tangentially related point does not validate any claim made on the Bosnian pyramids. Please provide specific verification for why they are man made. This should be relatively easily solved, by either side. Osmanagich posits that the material unearthed is poured concrete, geologists say that it is the same material in the surrounding area and that is it not of a unique composition. Why doesn't Osmanagich provide the specific details of the material unearthed that indicate it was poured concrete? There's no reason to get emotional or defensive, a simple objective analysis will reveal the facts.

".......The egyptian pyramids were built by who? oh, jewish slaves? And you have found evidence of this? oh, no you haven't. okay.... oh, the information you regurgitate came from the bible... cool, very scientific......"

and those slaves today are department heads of the universities who struggle to maintain the 'linear advancement' theory hornswoggle. Anything like this which pours salt in their wounded egos and destroys their long held fable induces them to send out their propaganda trolls like Aaron to be the first to lay their negative comments. There are more things hidden in the Smithsonian basement than are drempt of in your imagination. Mainstream archaeology....pfft.

Well, if YOU ALL want to put your money in this scheme of dozens of millions of euros per year... Feel free to do so.
I won't sleep one night less because of it.

Exactly. Aside from what genuine mainstream academia thinks, a recent piece on a Nat Geo doc showed a couple of genuine mainstream geologists/ archeologists showing genuine mainstream FEAR at the state of the alleged tunnels! And that pretty much sealed the deal for me.     The desire of those guys to get out was far more apparent than some rubble and mud being a slightly different texture to some other rubble and mud. Then the view from round the back of these things where they look amazingly like…. all the other big hills in the area.

it would certainly be interesting to find out what the piece of wood is dated to.. if it verifies your earlier article… and just because i have to OF COURSE conventional archeologist would state this is a “natural” occurance, as it pushes their limits of credulity… i find it much more credible that it is 30kyo, and that most of the pyramids found all over the world(including underwater japan india bermuda) are of a similar age… but people .. arguing ad hominem does NOTHING but prove that there will never be a comparable civilization as those that built the pyramids, cydonia, phobos, iapetus, the type e asteroids, and the moon… we are truly in the last age and unless people can get over the “im better than you” attitude, the wonders that could await us will forever be out of our grasp.. and so i grieve………..

Archaeologists and historians have been making a lot of noise about how the Bosnian Pyramids and their associated tunnel labyrinths are "fakes" or are even (LMAO!) being built by the volunteers clearing, researching, and exploring the site.

Many aspects of those tunnels and pyramids are far beyond the engineering and technology of OUR XXI century civilization! Even if Dr. Osmanagichalong with a few dozen-or even a few hundred-volunteers was to attempt to concoct a fraud, he wouldn't know how to do this, and his foundation certainly would not have the $$$$ to undertake it.

There ARE frauds, misunderstandings, and even mass deceptions in history and archeology which all are long overdue for debunking. Asserting "fraud" where none exists is itself an act of fraud, and is shameful indeed!

So, ancients built a kickass pyramid and then filled the corridors in with sand and gravel? Ancients could not possible have been as stupid as these modern day humans that call themselves "archaeologists." Con men begun digging and said, "hey, that looks like a tunnel!" Idiots, the whole lot and people that believe it. It's a mountain!

Do you believe ancients filled in the tunnels?

People are claiming that the archeologist researchers are digging the tunnels, while clearly being filled clearing looser material from pre-existing structures.

People wonder why the tunnels were blocked, and by whom, yet forget that tunnels in the Giza pyramids were blocked, and closed by hidden doors. Not to mention the narrow shafts.

The facts are fairly simple really. We are expected to discount the views of one group, while wholescale accept the views of a group. Except that the latter habitually lies about the Giza plateau pyramids, that discounts factual evidence about damage that is not sand nor rain but flowing water, that leaps on a few tools discovered as a means to date a building and assign it to a later Pharaoh who was at a time where Egypt was no longer rich enough to afford to build such a building, who is recorded as just fixing up an older run down building to appeal to the gods. Yet we should believe them?

Oh and wait, they assert that it's a tomb. Except that there's no evidence of it, no markings that suggest it to be (while all other tombs are heavily marked up and painted), and no evidence of a burial whatsoever. But yet we should believe them over the Bosnian discovery? It's madness really. The 'establishment' is merely a small group who decide what facts to overlook, what line to agree and then hound anyone out who doesn't agree. That's not science. But no, that's fine, you agree with them.

How safe is it for Serbs to come and stay at the Bosnian Pyramids. PLEASE tell me honestly.... Even though I was born in America I more so identify as Serbian.
I LOVE your website!!

In the sane and rational world, this is called mining. This is a fantastical story only supported by imagination. It is interesting, but purely fantasy. Get real people. The truth is out there.

Totem, in your rational world where tunnels only exist where mined by modern hands, I presume you believe the Giza pyramids were just tombs. In spite of there being zero evidence of that. Simply because that's what a small group of people decided, to make sense of what they couldnt understand within their frame?

I saw this on the "unexplained files" and found the entire segment to be quite believable and well within scientific boundaries. I too must say that archaeologists which are seemingly unnaturally attached to the mainstream world history view seem to be protecting it with nazi like fervor, and it certainly brings to question one simple word, "why?" - I have heard nothing which suggests that his data and findings are not real. Fear of a cave in, inside a tunnel? In a tunnel which is 30K years old, would certainly not be something which points towards it being natural, it points to it being old and decrepit. The water tunnels, the magnetic energy, the things found at the site, all point towards this being built, and even IF the rock is rock and not concrete, that hardly proves that the rock wasn't formed and moved by the hands of men. I think proper dating needs to be done, and proper supervision should be given at all times at the site to make sure that 1) there is no fraud and 2) there is no reverse fraud (intentional discrediting by people who don't want this to come out) - everyone has an agenda on both sides. We will need more time before a true answer to this is found, let history have the time it needs to present itself

Science tries to prove itself wrong. Thee are a whole lot of claims being made and not a single piece of defensible scientific evidence. Call it conjecture, call it a theory, but do not insult real science with conspiracy explanations. That just makes this whole thing hoaxy and quacky. Yup.

You know that this is fake right.

Ancient Places

View point towards Katun River, Atlai Mountains
Giant ramparts guarded Altai Mountains against attack from the north, says leading archaeologist Professor Andrey Borodovsky. The wall complex - now almost hidden to the naked eye - is believed to date from a long era that also saw such constructions as the Great Wall of China and Hadrian's Wall.
