 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.

Susan, those are reasonable points. I appreciate your input.

I wonder though about the cost benefit as the absolute cost in terms of resources and requirements are no different then than they are today. It seems to me that carving living quarters out of hard rock is one of the most cost prohibitive construction methods available. And I think tunnels are VERY dangerous as a retreat from marauders and outlaws. All the attackers have to do is find the air vents and it's pretty much all over with.

I don't disagree with the predator animal idea, but the response to that threat seems to be the many thousands of dolmens scattered all over the world. They seem to me to be temporary 'safe rooms' particularly from large flyers and land based carnivores. I think there is a specific reason that almost all dolmens have very large and very heavy single slab stone roofs. Which , in my opinion is to keep something very large and very strong from entering the confined space. As you may know, there are two distinct styles of dolmen. On is a very heavy roof slab perched up on open stone pillars. They look to me way to much like a defense against very large flyers for it to have much other purpose.

The other style is a small room built with very large stone blocks, again with a very large flat stone roof. This type though has an entry hole close to the ground that is just large enough to allow women and children to crawl through. (On average, the entry holes are round and about 2 feet across.)

In my upcoming book, I will make the case that both giant humans and some mid sized dinosaurs co-existed with Cro Magnon and several other Hominid species up into the mid to late Holocene, including modern times. 14' to 16' giant hominids were able to defend against T-Rex and other mid sized to large carnivores. But modern human and smaller hominids were especially vulnerable. I have several copies of old tintype photos (if I had to guess I would say about 1850) of what appear to be Petrodactyl type flyers. Another later one is of a Triceratops. I can't prove they are authentic, but it was a long time ago, and a very difficult situation to 'fake'. All three are military photos, showing a group of military personnel (like a squad or column of men) with the animals.

Further, as the Earth was experiencing a rapid ice meltwater pulse at the time, (some experts think the ambient temperature was 27 degrees hotter than current) it seems to me that remediation of the heat index is a far better reason to go underground than security and safety from an external threat.

Anyway, thanks for your comment.

underground tunnels provide protection from wild animals, other humans--and if deep enough, acts
as insulation in winter-----visit a coal mine during winter weather and you will appreciate the warmth-----

I have heard it postulated that, at one time in Earth's history, the atmosphere contained a "water blanket", consisting of an immense amount of water which shielded the earth from large amounts of radiation. This blanket would also have had the effect of distributing the Sun's heating effect evenly between the poles, resulting in a very mild climate over all the Earth. If this theory were true, it may have been possible that this "water blanket" was destroyed by some collision or near miss and could account for such a large change in the depth of the sea.

It is my entirely unscientific postulation that the large animals, a.k.a. dinosaurs, were amphibious, and we have no reason to believe otherwise. I agree it is quite silly to believe that a brontosaur could carry its' weight upright and on land given, considering the Law of Gravity. Another notion is that the density of the Earth has changed, significantly, over time. Perhaps, millions of years ago, the Earth was 4x, 6x, or even 10x its' current size? If this were so, then the gravitational pull of the Earth's core would be significantly less than it is today. Compare to Jupiter.

I wouldn't disagree with you (particularly as you are arguing the Plasma Universe theory of the Electric Sky folks, Hal Thornhill, et.al.) In general, I don't disagree with the theory, although it does not square with all the facts of the mid Holocene cataclysms. The Younger Dryas event at 12,800 YBP and the Hudson Bay event at 11,200 YBP, as well as the Last Great Cataclysm at 7,000 YBP have left hard evidence they were major impact events. I won't cover them here, but Firestone and West do a credible job of defining their research on the so called 'Carolina Bays' from the Hudson Bay impact event. The Younger Dryas event has long been considered an extraordinary impact event, though no one has identified the crater. Well, I have fixed that issue.

In my current book that I am in final edit on, I will make the case that a projectile about 25-30 miles across hit the Earth in the Pacific Northwest near Mt. Sacajawea in NE Oregon, penetrated the Earth and exited in the Taklimakan Desert in Western China.

The event accounts for every anomaly of the Y-D impact. One of the results was a major change in the charge density of our Electrostatic Field envelope (referred to as 'Gravity' by the non technical, Quantum Physics folks) which caused large heavy flora and fauna to go extinct almost instantaneously. There is no other explanation for 120 ton animals being able to walk upright or 500 lb flyers to cruise the skies except less (by magnitudes of scale) dense 'gravity'. The best Scientists in the Electrogravatics crowd, particularly Tesla, Asp, Brown and LaVoliette all make the case that 'G' as a force is in reality an Electrostatic Field. I tend to agree with them, which puts me at some slight odds with the Electric Sky Plasma model.

I don't disagree that the hockey stick graph of the last several ice ages reflect something very regular in terms of heat index is occurring over very long time frames. That does not mean however, that cataclysmic impact and other driver events do not occur quite regular on our planet, because they do. When a dipole exchange takes place on our planet, for example, whether it corresponds to a similar exchange on the Sun or not, I am sure the planet reacts in some very catastrophic (to flora and fauna) processes.

I will make most of the case in my book that our historical records, tribal legends, myths, and religions reflect a time in our not so distant past when two major planets were much closer to us than they are today. Shades of The Saturn Theory. So some series of catastrophic events clouded the early Holocene, destroying whole species, and I will make the case that dinosaurs including T-Rex and other large carnivores were part of that extinction level event. As well as human giants.

All that being said, I still like the theory that the Sun probably is a whole lot less stable that we tend to expect it to be. And it probably wrecks havoc on our earth on a fairly regular basis.
