 Ancient Underground Network of tunnels From Scotland to Turkey

Extensive Ancient Underground Networks Discovered Throughout Europe

Print

Archaeologists uncovered thousands of Stone Age underground tunnels, stretching across Europe from Scotland to Turkey, perplexing researchers as to their original purpose.

German archaeologist Dr Heinrich Kusch, in his book ‘ Secrets of the Underground Door to an Ancient World ’ (Original title in German: "Tore zur Unterwelt: Das Geheimnis der unterirdischen Gänge aus uralter Zeit ...") revealed that tunnels were dug under literally hundreds of Neolithic settlements all over Europe and the fact that so many tunnels have survived 12,000 years indicates that the original networks must have been huge.

'In Bavaria in Germany alone we have found 700 metres of these underground tunnel networks. In Styria in Austria we have found 350 metres,' he said. 'Across Europe there were thousands of them - from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean.

The tunnels are quite small, measuring only 70cm in width, which is just enough for a person to crawl through. In some places there are small rooms, storage chambers and seating areas.

While many believe Stone Age humans were primitive, incredible discoveries such as the 12,000 year-old temple called Gobekli Tepe in Turkey and Stonehenge in England - which demonstrate advanced astronomical knowledge - indicate that they were not as primitive as many believe.

The discovery of a vast network of tunnels suggests that Stone Age humans were not just spending their days hunting and gathering.  However, the real purpose of the tunnels is still a matter of speculation. Some experts believe they were a way of protecting man from predators while others believe they were a way for people to travel safely, sheltered from harsh weather conditions or even wars and violence. However, at this stage scientists are only able to guess, as the tunnels have not yet revealed all their secrets of the past.

Someone call Ancient Aliens. They were used for safe passage while the "Engineers/God/Gods/Aliens" were battling it out with others on the surface.

Have you read any of Graham's books? Of all the alternative historians he is the most sensible and well researched. There are plenty of links to peer reviewed scientific papers in his books and the latest Magicians of the Gods is mostly that! No aliens or giants just clever humans who lost their memory trying to cope with 1500 years of appalling climate during the Younger Dryas. If I was going to survive highly unpredictable weather and significant fall out I would go underground.

I looked for references from the peer reviewed archaeology but couldn't find any. The 12,000 year age reminds me of Graham Hancock and his wacky ideas. I trust they are not related?

The tunnels were to escape the giants...
