Megastructure: The Fojnica Riverbed Winding through the Bosnian Pyramid Complex Is an Ancient Artificial Megalithic Structure

What school in archaeology trains you to find a built river?
Jock Doubleday

“It’s an astonishing feat of engineering, all these structures tied together at the base through the riverbed so there’s no way for the water in the river to get under the structures. Because the water is flowing over the megastructure that is the Complex. And all these structures are tied together. So the Pyramid of the Moon — it’s not like they built it on the earth and then went over here and built Osijela Hill. No. They tied everything. Everything’s built. Everything’s tied together. Impossible, except maybe over millions of years, to erode this.” – Jock Doubleday

The Fojnica River winds meanderingly through the Bosnian Pyramid Complex, a prehistoric complex of pyramids, tumuli, tunnels, and other ancient structures in and near Visoko, Bosnia.

Please note the use of the word archaeological instead of geological. The Fojnica River’s riverbed was created in ancient times and has no geological features in the normal sense of the word, although the riverbed is composed of materials that normally compose natural geological features.

A Detailed Chronology: Six Videographic Explorations

A detailed chronology of archaeological explorations of the Fojnica River riverbed system — a six-part hyperlinked video series, with key quotes, links to articles, and links to accompanying photo folders — is below.

Part 1 of the six-part “Built Riverbed System” video series:
“Built by the Ancients: Fojnica River in the Bosnian Pyramid Complex, August 5, 2015″

On August 5, 2015, the first exploration was made of the riverbed of the Fojnica River, which winds meanderingly through the Bosnian Pyramid Complex in Visoko, Bosnia.

What was discovered: Ancient artificial structural baked adhered clay layers, and some ancient baked concrete, forming riverbanks and the riverbed of the Fojnica River.

The ancients built a river.

More precisely, the ancients built a riverbed to contain water that for thousands or millions of years would run placidly (non-erosively) past their pyramids and tumuli and tunnel entrances, in what scientists today call the Bosnian Pyramid Complex or the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids.

Part 2 of the six-part “Built Riverbed System” video series:
“Built by the Ancients: The Fojnica River – The Adventure Continues, August 8, 2015″

It makes sense that the ancients would not sit their structures on top of the earth but would tie them together structurally across valleys and riverbeds. It makes sense that the ancients intentionally built a riverbed to direct the course and speed of water through their pyramid and tunnel complex.

1. Artificially baked and hardened textured claystone plates of varying thicknesses compose the Fojnica River riverbed. (Photos by Jock Doubleday, August 8, 2015.)

Above: Archaeological Park Foundation volunteer Shawn Rateau inspects one of millions of ancient artificially created textured claystone plates, adhered to similar plates below and above, create both the shape and the flow of the Fojnica River in Visoko, Bosnia.

Above: Thick raised claystone plates – present on the outside of the river bend but absent on the inside of the river bend.

2. Artificially baked and hardened textured claystone plates of varying thicknesses compose the Fojnica River riverbanks, in conjunction with alternating softer clay layers.

Above: Ancient artificially created textured claystone blocks, adhered to softer clay and/or hardened claystone plates below and above, create both the shape and the flow of the Fojnica River in Visoko, Bosnia. Here you can see that some of the softer clay layers have been eroded (below the hardened claystone blocks) by thousands of years of river water flow and especially by high-water flooding.

3. Riverbed adhered and inclined claystone layers create a braking system for water flow.

Above: Very steep angle against the flow of the river creates what Archaeological Park volunteer Christoffer Kindmark calls a “braking system.”

Above: Extremely thick baked claystone plate at a point of high flow rate (steep river water descent) on the Fojnica River in the Bosnian Pyramid Complex.

4. Riverbed adhered and inclined claystone layers are inclined at different angles to create differential braking of water flow at different points along the river.

Above: Less steep, almost flat, angle against the flow of the river.

Above: Medium-steep angle against the flow of the river.

Above: Very steep angle against the flow of the river.

Above: Very steep angle against the flow of the river.

Above: Extremely steep angle against the flow of the river.

5. Riverbed adhered and inclined claystone layers are angled at different angles (between parallel and perpendicular) to the flow of the river to create differential shaping and braking of the water flow.

Above: Close-to-parallel-angled clay layers, in comparison to the flow of the river. Archaeological Park Foundation volunteer Christoffer Kindmark is on the right.

Above: Artificial baked clay layers at a close-to-45-degree-angle, in comparison to the direction of the flow of the river.

Above: Close-to-perpendicular-angled clay layers, in comparison to the direction of the flow of the river.

Above: Virtually perpendicular-angled clay layers, in comparison to the direction of the flow of the river.

6. Most riverbed and riverbank claystone plates were artificially textured — gouged and sculpted — on their top surfaces, to one degree or another, possibly for the purposes of a) increasing water turbulence to create energetic vortexes and health-giving negative ions, b) braking water flow, and c) increasing earth or cosmic energy conductivity (flow).

Above: Artificial texturing (not natural rippling) of baked claystone structural riverbed layer.

Above: Artificial texturing (not natural rippling) of baked claystone structural riverbed layer.

7. Claystone plates are most prevalent, and most raised, on the outside of river bends, thus serving

a) to more effectively brake the river’s strongest flow and
b) to channel the river’s flow toward the inside of the bend, thus
c) more effectively preventing erosion to the riverbank on the outside of the river channel, thus
d) preventing water flow from eroding pyramids and other ancient built structures at the base.

8. The thickness of adhered structural claystone plates increases at points on the river where flow rate is higher (faster). “Step-downs” have the thickest plates.

Key conclusions from the August 8, 2015 archaeological exploration:

An intelligent race or races in the distant past built a riverbed:

1) as a structurally foundational base for gargantuan artificial structures lining the Fojnica River in the Visoko, Bosnia area 2) to contain a river that would run in a fully controlled fashion past meticulously, indeed artistically, constructed pyramids, hills, and tumuli in the Bosnian Pyramid Complex.

Part 3 of the six-part “Built Riverbed System” video series:
“Who Built the Upper Fojnica River in the Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex?”

On September 17, 2015, I took a taxi several kilometers west of the Bosnian Pyramid Complex. I was dropped off at Pločari Polje, and I walked back down the Fojnica River for several kilometers.

It was late summer, so the water level was very low. Ancient structures — artificial concrete and clay-and-claystone hills and artificial pyramid-like structures — line both sides of the Fojnica river from Visoko to Kiseljak. The Fojnica riverbed is therefore a critical component of the structures themselves, for without a hard artificial riverbed, the structures on either side would eventually be undermined by water erosion.

This video is part of a six-part series showing that the Fojnica River’s riverbed was built by an ancient civilization, tens of thousands of years ago, or longer ago, to tie together at the base the pyramids and other structures in the Bosnian Pyramid Complex (which by the way I think should be renamed the Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex, due to the extent of the artificial structures around the originally named complex, the heart of which is in Visoko, Bosnia.)

“These nearly vertical clay layers have no sign of erosion on them. They’ve not been worn smooth by the [river’s] water. That’s how strong these clay layers are. They’re still sharp. . . .

“And we can see sectioning of the layers. . . . Here’s a section line, right here. And you can see the real smooth quality of this. And if this was sedimentary, there would be no way to have these continual smooth — in this case vertical — sectioning lines [cutting through the layers at a near-90-degree angle]. It wouldn’t happen in nature.

“You’ve got Robert Schoch telling us that the Yonaguni Monument is . . . ‘natural or primarily natural’ . . . that the sandstone breaks out naturally to form these vertical sides. But in fact we know from Geology 101 that sedimzentary layers don’t break out vertically, they break out only horizontally. 

“So there’s no way that he could be correct that the sedimentary layers of the Yonaguni Monument are breaking out naturally. That’s just some kind of witchcraft talk. That’s sorcery. And we don’t appreciate it, the people who actually care about science and care about our world: our natural world and our artificial world — and those two meet in mysterious ways.” – Jock Doubleday, “Who Built the Riverbed of the Dragaca River, Main Tributary to the Fojnica River in the Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex?

Part 5 of the six-part “Built Riverbed System” video series:
“The Riverbed of the Fojnica River System: The Largest Artificial Megalithic Structure in the World, August 28, 2017”

“It’s a . . . strong structural riverbed that then becomes the structures on either side. So, to the west, we have the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of Love. To the east we have Osijela Hill. So this riverbed literally becomes the structures. The structures are tied together across the river for structural strength to last the ages. So the water does not get in and erode — cannot get under — their structures, because this is part of the structure.” – Jock Doubleday, “The Riverbed of the Fojnica River System: The Largest Artificial Megalithic Structure in the World, August 28, 2017”

A Schoching Proclamation

A riverbed built in ancient times in and near Visoko, Bosnia? But didn’t geology expert Robert Schoch say there’s nothing there? No prehistoric pyramids, no prehistoric tunnels, no built river, nothing?
– Jock Doubleday

For a minimum of seven years, and possibly for as long as ten years, Yale geologist Robert Schoch has had the following statement on his official web site:

I maintain my conviction that there are NO pyramids
at Visoko, Bosnia
. Rather, all the so-called pyramids are
the result of natural geological processes and phenomena
that are currently being “excavated” (i.e., modified) to
look like pyramids.” 
– Robert Milton Schoch

The word “conviction” means belief. Persons honoring and practicing the scientific method may well wonder why a scientist is espousing a belief instead of documenting scientific evidence that leads toward scientific conclusions.

The Bosnia River: Another Claystone Structure Built in Ancient Times

The riverbed of the neighboring Bosnia River, or “Bosna Rijeka,” a river that meets the Fojnica River in the heart of the Bosnian Pyramid Complex, is also an artificial structure.

The riverbed of the Bosnia River was built by the ancients in the same way that they built the Fojnica River: using baked adhered clay layers. But these layers — instead of being inclined against the flow of the river (leaning toward the flowing water like a turbulence-creating, and thereforefore negative-ions generating, machine) — the Bosnia River’s baked adhered clay layers are inclined with the flow the river.

As Hrvoje Zujić writes in his paper about pyramids as ionizers (“Interpretation of Symbols on Megalith K-1), pyramid complexes with tunnel systems use negative ions generated from river sources.

The Fojnica River and Bosnia River are a negative ions-generating machines (with no moving parts, to last the ages). The only thing that moves is the water flowing across hard baked clay layers.

How do we know that the Bosnia riverbed was constructed by an ancient advanced civilization? Because its structure of repeating, angled baked adhered clay layers is the same as that of the Fojnica riverbed, whose water flows through the Bosnian Pyramid Complex, and for which we have clear and voluminous evidence that it was built (see article, photos, and videos below).

The water contained in the Bosnia and Fojnica rivers, which meet in the village of Visoko just north and east of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, flows over baked adhered clay layers that direct the water around bends in the river to prevent erosion of the sides of the river, which take the brunt of the water flow’s force as it moves sinuously back and forth. In addition, riverbank sections that take the most force were strongly built up by the ancients. This was first noticed by Archaeological Park volunteer Shawn Rateau in August of 2015.

The Bosnia River Flows North: Why Is Its Direction Interesting?

Did you know that only a handful of rivers in the world flow north? It’s true.

And the Bosnia River, which meets the Fojnica River in the heart of Visoko, Bosnia, is one of those few northward-flowing rivers.

Below: 2 maps of the Bosnia River flowing north.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Why did the ancients create a northward flowing river in the Bosnia River, when most rivers on Earth flow generally south? (As you can see, the Fojnica flows generally east. It begins to flow north at the southern edge of the Bosnian Pyramid Complex.)

CONCLUSION

The riverbed of the Bosnian Pyramid Complex’s Fojnica River is the wet mega-elephant in the dusty Institutional Archaeology room.

In the Bosnian Pyramid Complex, we find structures tied together across the Fojnica riverbed so that erosive water will not get under them and erode them over time. Instead, water flows over a megastructure. The engineering and the scale of the ancients’ building in Visoko, Bosnia is astonishing.

The riverbeds of both the Fojnica River and the Bosnia River were built, partially or in their entirety, in ancient times.

The two riverbeds that meet in the heart of what I call the Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex comprise the largest documented artificial megalithic structure in the world — “largest” even if the gargantuan artificial structures (pyramids and built hills) on either side of the riverbeds are not included.

If these structures are included, then the structures’ outer boundaries (the ending points of their artificial material) must be discovered to make a total size measurement of the dual-river-multi-structure system. To date, no end to the ancients’ artificial material has been documented anywhere along the outer edges of the artificial structures lining the Fojnica or Bosnia rivers.

Encouragements

The exploration of this gargantuan river system is just beginning. The limits of the super-gargantuan ancient built river system have yet to be discovered. Are the rivers built from their very beginnings? How far does riverbed construction extend downstream in the Bosnia River?

Will you be the one to discover the limits of the riverbed that winds like a twisting cipher through the Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex? Where does the mega-building of the ancients end and nature begin?

Video: What did the ancients mean when they talked about clay? Glue. The etymology of clay is glue.

The Game of Glue: Exploring Osijela Hill in the Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex, June 9, 2017″

Video: “This is an example of ancient terraforming: the ancients’ step-down. They used the step-down all over the pyramid complex here in Visoko. You can see the beauty of it. It’s really regular. Its function is unknown. We don’t know why they’re doing step-downs all over Bosnia, not just in the pyramid complex. . . . So the whole pyramid [the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun] has these insistent horizontal features. And we can only surmise that this kind of geological engineering on the part of the ancients was part of an energy machine facilitation . . . It was helping the pyramid be what it wants to be, which is an energy mitigator, an energy amplifier, and, as Dr. Semir Osmanagić, discoverer of the Bosnian Pyramids, said, “a perpetual motion machine.” . . . I think what he meant by that was that this pyramid and others here in the complex, and others in the world — and he estimates that there are 100,000+ pyramids around the world, which is amazing, an amazing number: 100,000+ . . . okay, wow . . . then this is Pyramid Earth, right? — that these pyramids always have energy moving through. So the motion is the energy. So, unlike our “perpetual motion” machines which have moving parts, moving mechanical parts, these earthen, crystalline, stone, megalithic, lithic monuments built in ancient times, far, far in advance of our (what we call an advanced) civilization, let the energy move for various functions. And the latest idea is that these pyramids are part of a Cosmic Internet and that we can communicate through some of these structures, and do communicate, with other planets in other parts of the solar system, and can communicate with planets in other parts of the galaxy, using scalar wave technology that the ancients tapped into.”

Video: “University education is both a blessing and a curse – a blessing because it provides distinctions and terminology; a curse because received ideas may take on the power of orthodoxical (religious) beliefs. . . . Anyone can do science. And you have to look with your eyes. And then you do your best to figure things out. That’s all. Just because you have a degree from a prestigious university doesn’t mean you’re right. Because it just so happens that people with degrees from prestigious universities disagree about things all the time. So, the question is, ‘What do you see with your eyes? What’s your best theory?’ And then you put that out there to the scientific audience — which is to say, to the global mind, since we’re all scientists — and then we see whose theory is the theory that does the best in the opinion of the global mind.”

Video: Writer-videographer Jock Doubleday explores Osijela Hill in the Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex. For years, this hill has been said to be a clay quarry from which the ancients took the clay to make the gargantuan structures in the pyramid complex. But Doubleday discovers textured construction stones littering the hill and concludes that this hill cannot have been a quarry but is a hill that was built in its entirety in ancient times as an integral part of the Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex . . . for purposes unknown but possibly to keep the Fojnica River on its course.

The two huge structures are tied together across the Fojnica River by baked, adhered claystone layers that form the Fojnica riverbed.

Video: “The river that winds through the complex, the Fojnica Rijeka river, is built. So, the ancients who built the pyramid complex here in Visoko, Bosnia started with the river, presumably, and built it from the riverbed up. So the middle of the river is the starting point of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, as it is the starting point of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, Osijela Hill, and all the structures that line the river. . . . It’s an astonishing feat of engineering, all these structures tied together at the base through the riverbed so there’s no way for the water in the river to get under the structures. Because the water’s flowing over the megastructure that is the complex. And all these structures are tied together. So the Pyramid of the Moon — it’s not like they built it on the earth and then went over here and built Osijela Hill. No. They tied everything. Everything’s built. Everything’s tied together. Impossible, except maybe over millions of years, to erode this.”

Concrete on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun

How hard is the concrete on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun? Watch a huge mechanical digger (the biggest in Bosnia) fail to get through it. This is the concrete that Graham Hancock calls natural “pudding stone.”
Video:Mechanical Excavation of Super-Dense Ancient Concrete on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun”

“Another factor in the concrete durability is the water absorption [rate]. The water absorption rate of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun concrete is 1.1%, and the lower the water absorption rate, the better. The best water absorption rate of modern-day concrete is 3% . . . Therefore, the concrete on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun is almost three times less likely to absorb water as the best concrete that we make in modern day. . . . The water doesn’t get in as much in the winter. . . . And therefore it doesn’t freeze inside the concrete in the winter, and therefore it doesn’t expand and break the concrete. So water is not a problem in general for the ancients’ concrete. This is concrete that Robert Schoch calls natural. This is concrete that Graham Hancock calls natural.

Was Graham Hancock right to call concrete slabs on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun natural “pudding stones”? Let’s see what science has to say.
Video: A Defense of Science – Ancient concrete on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun”

Video: Super-durable concrete on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun – an explanation of megapascals”Video: Graham Hancock: “There are many hills that look like pyramids. . . . So just the fact that it looks like a pyramid doesn’t mean we have to automatically accept that it is a pyramid. . . . Nature also makes concretes. The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun concretes are very like these pudding stones that we see in different natural formations all around the world. . . . There are some interesting blocks on the top of the Vratnica Tumulus. They do certainly at first sight look quite man-made. But this ripple pattern in the top of them is quite typically what you get in a sedimentary stone that forms at the bottom of a lake, and I think it’s unlikely that these are man-made blocks. . . .
“Much more interesting at the site are the tunnels. Many people are under the impression that these tunnels are actually in the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. But that is not the case. They are about 2 to 3 kilometers away from the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. And they’re called the Ravne tunnels. And they are very intriguing. I don’t know what they are. They don’t seem very high tech, to me. But I do think that they are ancient. And they are being cleared out by Sam and his team. And they’ve found some very interesting artifacts inside them, which include this [single rock art] painting, and, if genuine, it certainly does add a new chapter to the history of Upper Paleolithic art.
“But I don’t think it gives us a lost civilization. . . . I feel that much further work needs to be done in Bosnia. One of the problems is that Sam and his team have been stopped — this is a recurrent problem in the world of alternative archaeology — they’ve been stopped from doing proper excavations in the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, and that’s really what’s needed, is a thorough, detailed excavation of the site, so that these questions marks can be either put to rest or confirmed.
“If [the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun] is a man-made pyramid, then it absolutely rewrites history, and I think it’s worth investigating further rather than simply writing it off. I can only give you my honest opinion of it so far, to the extent that I have seen it.”

Video: Dr. Sara Acconci: “The scientific community is fighting against this project. . . . So just to summarize . . . they told me, ‘You will never be able to find a job as an archaeologist [if you work on the Bosnian pyramids project].’ . . . I started as a volunteer [in the summer of 2010]. . . . When I came back to Italy, my professor asked me, ‘What did you do this summer?’ And I said, “I was excavating the biggest and oldest pyramid in the world.’ And she told me, ‘It’s better if you will not speak about it, because you will never obtain your second graduation.’ . . . So I asked them why. And they told me, ‘Because we should [have to] rewrite history, and we should [have to] admit that we are not the most advanced civilization ever.’ . . . They were pretty clear. So I just decided to play their game. And when I obtained my second graduation, I told everybody, ‘Thank you so much, because with this piece of paper, I can go in Bosnia and excavate the biggest pyramid in the world.'”

More about the Bosnian Pyramid Complex

The archaeological orthodoxy’s 11-year attempt, and failure, to stop scientific inquiry into the Bosnian Pyramid Complex is detailed in the following article. “The Mysterious Anti-Scientific Agenda of Robert Schoch – Part 1: The Bosnian Pyramid Complex”

“What is a scientist? A good scientist, a real scientist, is one who bypasses cultural indoctrination, the indoctrination of the language that we use — which has its own pitfalls, its own traps — and the indoctrination of the universities, which tell us how to think. Sometimes the universities are correct. Sometimes they’re not. If they’re not, then the student, when he or she goes out into the world, needs to bypass that indoctrination. And so we have, in the sciences, a massive amount of incorrect information being taught as truth. Big problem. Then the students go out, and they have difficulty . . . overcoming that indoctrination, filtering it out, to see what they’re really looking at. Because you can look at this [excavation of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun], and if you’re a graduate of a school of archaeology, you’ll see sedimentary layers.” – Jock Doubleday

Archaeology by the Numbers: Thirteen Years of Tourism at the Bosnian Pyramid Complex in Visoko, Bosnia — 2005-2017

***UPDATE – January 5, 2018***

Jock Doubleday: What are the yearly tourism figures for the Bosnian Pyramid Complex in 2015, 2016, and 2017? Also, can you give us a figure for the total number of tourists that have visited the pyramid complex?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: Roughly:
2017 – 50,000
2016 – 40,000
2015 – 30,000
Total: approximately 500,000 tourists have visited the Bosnian Pyramid Complex  (2005-2017)

Original article published on January 13, 2015 (below):

Archaeology by the Numbers: Ten Years of Tourism at the Bosnian Pyramid Complex in Visoko, Bosnia — 2005-2015″

Jock Doubleday: How many tourists have visited the Bosnian pyramids, and Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth, which winds beneath them, in the nearly 10 years since you discovered the pyramid complex in Visoko, Bosnia in April 2005?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: We don’t have precise numbers, especially because no one registered all the visitors the first few years. However, the projected number for the last 10 years is around 450,000 visitors. We would have 5,000 to 8,000 visitors a day during 2006, in the April-October period. During the weekends, that number would go up to 15,000 a day. Only when we started charging for tickets in 2011 did we get a more precise number for daily visits.

JD: Can you give us a breakdown of estimated visitors year by year?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: Yes.

2005 – 200,000
2006 – 80,000
2007 – 10,000
2008 – 10,000
2009 – 15,000
2010 – 20,000
2011 – 20,000
2012 – 30,000
2013 – 40,000
2014 – 25,000

JD: Why do you think tourism numbers dipped so low in 2007?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: Pressure coming from the Bosnian cultural establishment in 2007 resulted in the government limiting the area where we could work, cuts in funds and sponsorships, negative publicity, a media boycott of positive events, etc. So, people started coming less and less in 2006 and 2007 to visit the Bosnian pyramids.

JD: Tourism numbers rose steadily after 2008 — going from 10,000 in 2008 to 40,000 in 2013. Why do you think tourism numbers dipped again, from 40,000 to only 25,000 in 2014?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: The Archaeological Park Foundation has made a large effort promoting the site and inviting visitors, volunteers, tourists, researchers, and media. It resulted in strong numbers of tourists in 2012 and 2013. Unfortunately, Bosnia was hit with devastating floods in May 2014, and images of the flooding went all over the world and caused lot of tourist cancellations in 2014. However, long term, we will see more and more people coming to this exciting site.

JD: How much are ticket prices to see archaeological excavation sites on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, and Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: The two main attractions, a prehistoric tunnel called Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth, and the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, cost 5 Euros each, with official Foundation guide included. Other sites like the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, Vratnica Tumulus, and KTK Tunnel, cost 2.5 Euros per person.

JD: Can people also see archaeological excavation sites on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Dragon, the Bosnian Pyramid of Love, and the Temple of Mother Earth? What are the ticket prices?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: All sites are accessible. At this point we don’t charge for visits to the Bosnian Pyramid of the Dragon, the Bosnian Pyramid of Love, and the Temple of Mother Earth structures, due to the very limited amount of work we’ve done there. But those places are special to visit. The views and energies are just right.

JD: You also discovered three ancient tumuli at the northern and southern ends of the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids — Vratnica Tumulus and Dolovi Tumulus, and Ginje Tumulus, respectively — which makes a total of ten ancient structures in the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids (the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, the Bosnian Pyramid of Love, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Dragon, the Temple of Mother Earth, Vratnica Tumulus (at the northern end of the complex), Dolovi Tumulus (right next to Vratnica) Ginje Tumulus (at the southern end of the complex), KTK Tunnel, and Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth). Can people visit archaeological excavation sites on these two tumuli, as well? Do they buy tickets, or how does it work?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: The best way is to meet with our official guides, a total of 12 of them in Visoko. They’ll be happy to show visitors all locations and to inform them about cost.

JD: Is there a specific organization that tourist money from ticket sales goes to?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.:  In November 2005, I registered the nonprofit organization Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation with the State Ministry of Justice, for cultural heritage protection and the promotion of archaeological tourism. The Foundation collects the money from the tickets and uses it for archaeological excavation, paying for experts (archaeologists, geologists, anthropologists, etc.) to study the sites, laboratory analysis, sample testing, radiocarbon dating, tools, mechanical equipment like diggers, labor, electricity bills in the tunnels, maintenance on locations, etc. Archaeology is very expensive.

JD: Have you personally made money from your discovery of ancient pyramids in Bosnia?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: Since day one, I’ve been the biggest donator to the project. Even today, 10 years after the discovery, I still spend my own money. The first priority is international promotion. The second priority is to cover Foundation employees’ payroll during the winter months when there is no tourist money coming in. Fortunately, I have my own manufacturing business in Houston, Texas, with 70 employees, and that’s the source of my income.

JD: Presumably the Bosnian government is happy to have tourists coming to visit the pyramids. What has been the official reaction of Bosnian government officials in the last ten years to an estimated 450,000 foreigners traveling to Bosnia to see pyramids? 

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: Some politicians have appreciated our work very much. Some have not seemed to care.

JD: Two Wikipedia pages claim that the Bosnian pyramids are “natural hills,” and Yale geologist Dr. Robert Schoch agrees. Have any of the estimated 450,000 tourists who have visited the Foundation’s archaeological sites in the Bosnian Pyramid Complex asked for their money back, saying that these archaeological sites are not pyramids but simply natural hills?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: I haven’t heard of cases of visitors asking for their money back. However, I’ve heard so many times people congratulating us, supporting us, and wishing all the best in our project. They know that something history-changing is hidden here in the heart of Bosnia.

JD: Robert Schoch states that Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth, which winds for tens of kilometers beneath the Bosnian Pyramid Complex, is a “military” tunnel, not a prehistoric tunnel built at the same time as the pyramid complex an estimated 34,000 years ago. Have any of the tourists visiting Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth asked for their money back, saying that Ravne does not look prehistoric?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: Unscientific opinions from people like Robert Schoch are irrelevant in science. Only scientific arguments are relevant. Schoch hasn’t done a single analysis, or asked for laboratory analysis results, of the samples and organic materials we have found in Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth. Schoch came in 2006 when there was very little to see. Tourists today can see that the tunnel, with its many megaliths and dry-stack stone walls and water channels, is prehistoric, and we have the science to prove it.

JD: What are your predictions for future tourism in the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids?

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: This site will attract hundreds of thousands of visitors per year. The Bosnian pyramids and Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth offer spiritual and healing aspects that are not found elsewhere. This project both changes our view of the ancient past and has the potential to change our future for the better.

JD: Thank you.

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D.: Thank you.

The Race to Produce a New Play about Nikola Tesla: Which Theater Will Be the First to Produce “I Dream the Woman Electric,” a Love Story about the Greatest Scientist in History?

I lived in the Balkans for three years working on various projects, including the writing and promotion of a new full-length theatrical drama about Nikola Telsa, I Dream the Woman Electric.

Poster #1 (English)   Poster #2 (Serbian)   Poster #3 (Croatian)

Oddly, in the 20 months after the play’s completion in January 2016, none of the theaters I spoke to in the Balkans (Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia) could be convinced to read the play.

For instance, Jelena Kovačić, dramaturg for the National Theater in Rijeka, Croatia, told me that “there are too many plays about Nikola Tesla.”

jelenakovacic

Jelena Kovačić, dramaturg for the National Theater in Rijeka, Croatia.

I replied, “My play will pay for your window.” (There was a hole in her office window, and freezing cold air was coming in, in the middle of winter.) She replied, “The theater’s stage is booked for four years.”

On September 8, 2017, Dubravko Mihanović at the Gavella Theater in Zagreb, Croatia wrote me the following letter to explain why the Croatian translation of “I Dream the Woman Electric” would not be produced (or read):

8 September, 2017
Dear Mr. Doubleday,
In May we premiered the play called “Tesla Anonimus“, written and directed by Filip Šovagović, so we have a performance about Nikola Tesla on our repertoire.
Thank you,
Sincerely,
Dubravko Mihanović 

Although I desire to premiere  the play in Tesla’s native language (Serbo-Croatian), after a year and a half, I have not been able to get a receptive response from Balkan theaters.

Therefore, in October 2017, a Ukrainian translation made (“Я вимріяв жінку електричну“) — and an actors’ reading was held — with a hoped-for premiere production date at a Ukrainian theater in 2018.

The Bosnian Rosetta Stones – Could they Be the Keys to Unlocking the Identity of the Builders of the Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex?

Can three stones found on Osijela Hill solve the mystery of the identity of the ancient master builder race that created the structures in the Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex?

Will finger-like marks in ancient claystones forever alter our understanding of Earth’s history?

What ancient advanced civilization made this textured stone and millions of others like it 30,000+ years ago? Let’s continue the investigation in the Visoko, Bosnia area.”

9) “University education is both a blessing and a curse – a blessing because it provides distinctions and terminology; a curse because received ideas may take on the power of orthodoxical (religious) beliefs. Anyone can do science. And you have to look with your eyes. And then you do your best to figure things out. That’s all. Just because you have a degree from a prestigious university doesn’t mean you’re right. Because it just so happens that people with degrees from prestigious universities disagree about things all the time. So, the question is, ‘What do you see with your eyes? What’s your best theory?’ And then you put that out there to the scientific audience – which is to say, to the global mind, since we’re all scientists – and then we see whose theory is the theory that does the best in the opinion of the global mind.” – Jock Doubleday, “Chasing Osijela Hill: The Bosnian Pyramid Megacomplex: Clay Quarry or Built Hill? March 3, 2015″

10) February 9, 2015: On Osijela Hill we see alternating 1) many-meters-deep soft clay layers alternated with 2) leftward-leaning hard claystone terrace layers – inclined into the structure for structural strength. Osijela Hill sits directly across the Fojnica River from the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. The two huge structures are tied together across the Fojnica River by baked, adhered claystone layers that form the Fojnica riverbed. The ancients tied together their structures here, either across the built-from-scratch Fojnica riverbed or with alternating clay and concrete layers, as with the Bosnian Pyramid of Love and the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun.

Pyramid-Shaped Structure Composed of Ancient Concrete Discovered in Zagorice, Bosnia near the Bosnian Pyramid Complex

By Jock Doubleday

Should a new structure be added to the already lengthy list of 11 ancient structures in the Bosnian Pyramid Complex?

map of Ginje Tumulus and the proposed structure Pyramid of Remembering_edited-1 NEW.jpg

As of April 2015, Ginje Tumulus was the farthest-south structure in the Bosnian Pyramid Complex. The new structure proposed for addition in the Complex, the Bosnian Pyramid of Remembering, is located 4 kilometers west and slightly north of Ginje.

The 11 ancient structures already discovered and named in the Bosnian Pyramid Complex are:

1)   Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun
2)   Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon
3)   Bosnian Pyramid of Love
4)   Bosnian Pyramid of the Dragon
5)   Temple of Mother Earth
6)   Vratnica Tumulus
7)   Dolovi Tumulus
8)   Ginje Tumulus
9)   KTK Tunnel
10) Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth (Levels 1 and Level 2)
11) Belltower Hill

Additional structures that may or may not be added to the Bosnian Pyramid Complex in the future are:

Kula Hill, Osijela Hill, the Fojnica riverbed, the Bosna riverbed, an unnamed “twin peak” to the southwest of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, and other structures in and near Visoko, Bosnia.

On April 12, 2015, I took a taxi from Visoko, Bosnia to Zagorice, a small village about 7 kilometers southwest of Visoko along the road that follows the Fojnica River toward Kiseljak.

Here is a video of an exploration of the ancient pyramid-shaped structure that towers above the small village of Zagorice, Bosnia.

Star Systems of the Gods? Are Ancient Petroglyphs in Surface Stones in South Africa Talking about the Night Sky or about the Microscopically Small?

By Jock Doubleday

Do ancient petroglyphs discovered in November 2015 in Waterval Boven, South Africa depict stellar constellations?

What do the channels between circles represent? Are these rock carvings meant to depict molecular configurations?

These ancient petroglyphs, discovered by Jock Doubleday on November 12, 2015 in Waterval Boven, South Africa, have the feeling of a map.

Do these carvings depict star relationships in the night sky? Do they depict structures so small that we have only recently been able to begin to see some of them with the help of the Atomic Force Microscope?

MEGASPHERE: The Stone Ball that Wouldn’t Roll Away: Archaeology Magazine Ignored the March 2016 Discovery of the Most Massive Stone Sphere in the World . . . But It’s Still There

by Jock Doubleday

***UPDATE January 1, 2018 ***

Archaeology magazine continues its 11-year-moratorium on Bosnian archaeology — an archaeology which includes the most astonishing archaeological discoveries of the new millennium: the estimated 34,000-year-old Bosnian Pyramid Complex in Visoko, Bosnia and the likely similarly ancient Megasphere in Zavidovici, Bosnia — while at the same time publishing archaeological non-news about a 106-year-old fruitcake found in Antarctica.

UPDATE! Archaeology Magazine ignores 34,000 year old pyramid complex to talk about a 106-year-old fruitcake.jpeg

Desperate to distract us from the truth about humanity’s astonishing past on Earth, and in particular from the mountain of scientific evidence recently unearthed about an ancient civilization in Bosnia, in 2016 Archaeology magazine published another non-story, in a series of non-stories, about the discovery of artifacts associated with a quilter who was murdered in 1826. You heard it right. “On the evening of January 3, 1826, someone entered the Northumberland home of Joseph Hedley — known locally as ‘Joe the Quilter’ for his great skill with needle and thread — and brutally murdered the lonely old man.”

“Megasphere”
September 24, 2016

stone sphere stone ball Zavidovice Bosnia

Suad Keserovic excavates a giant stone ball in 2016 in Stone Spheres Park in Podubravlje village, near Zavidovici, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It’s a mystery.

archaeology-magazine-cover-january-february-16-cover

Archaeology magazine, the top magazine in the field of archaeology, has remained silent about a megasphere discovered in Bosnia.

Archaeology magazine, the most prestigious archaeology magazine in the world, has made no mention, in six months, of the March 2016 discovery of the most massive ancient stone sphere ever found.

Question: Why would the top magazine in the field of archaeology ignore what may be the most astonishing find of the decade, a mega-sphere found in Bosnia?

Another question: Why did the same magazine ignore what is certainly the find of the century (so far): the discovery of a prehistoric pyramid complex in Visoko, Bosnia?

Let’s keep these questions in mind as a Bosnian mega-sphere’s story unfolds.

A Megaspheric Discovery

The story of this mega-stone — the “megasphere,” as I call it — broke worldwide in April 2016, capturing the attention of major media all over the globe.

Major Media Mega-Coverage of the Megasphere:

The Telegraph (UK) April 11, 2016
Daily Mail (UK) April 7, 2016
The Mirror (UK) April 15, 2016
ABC News (US) April 14, 2016

semir-with-megasphere

Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D., discoverer of the Bosnian Pyramids in Visoko, Bosnia and founder of Stone Spheres Park near Zavidovici, Bosnia, stands next to the megasphere, the largest ancient artificial stone ball excavated so far in Stone Spheres Park.

Oddly, the editors of Archaeology magazine completely ignored the megasphere’s discovery, making no mention of the astonishing find 1) in their print publication, 2) in their online publication, and 3) on their Facebook page

In the last several years, Archaeology‘s Facebook page has run two “balls-topic” stories.

two-looted-roman-sling-stones

Two looted Roman sling stones returned to an Israeli museum. The “story” was posted on Archaeology magazine’s Facebook page on July 13, 2015.

These two stories may be the most ho-hum, dreary stories ever written in the annals of archaeology.

Archaeology‘s first balls-topic story is:

“Two looted Roman sling stones were anonymously returned to an Israeli museum. . . . A museum employee found the stones in a bag in the museum’s courtyard with a note that read, ‘These are two roman ballista balls from Gamla, from a residential quarter at the foot of the summit. I stole them in July 1995 and since then they have brought me nothing but trouble. Please, do not steal antiquities!'”

Archaeology‘s second “balls-topic” story in the last several years, a micro-story about micro-balls, is about musket balls:

unfired-musket-balls-from-the-battle-of-waterloo

Unfired musket balls, allegedly from the Battle of Waterloo, a micro-story run by Archaeology magazine’s Facebook page. But the story of the most massive stone ball in the world being found in Bosnia, a mega-story about a mega-ball, was ignored by Archaeology magazine’s Facebook page and by both its online and its print publication.

“In Belgium, archaeologists have unearthed musket balls that might be from some of the first shots fired in the Battle of Waterloo.”

Archaeology magazine’s micro-articles about alleged Roman “sling stones” and Waterloo musket balls do not challenge or change anything we know about human history. Yet these two stories were the “balls stories” of choice for editors at Archaeology magazine over the last several years.

Archaeology‘s online publication reproduced and expanded the Facebook “sling stones” story and faithfully gave their readers a “musket balls” micro-story, though the online story was set in Massachusetts.

Instead of running a story about the most massive stone sphere ever discovered on the planet, the existence of which substantially challenges our understanding of human history, Archaeology magazine was happy to serve its readers pebble fare, scientific pabulum, thin orthodoxical wafers.

The Archaeological Orthodoxy: Gatekeepers of Archaeological Information

Who are the gatekeepers of archaeological information in the 21st century?

What are the names of the people at Archaeology magazine, who, for instance, in the spring of 2016, endeavored (and failed) to excise from archaeological history a 37-ton sphere? What is their education? What is their training? What is their aim? What, dare we ask, is their agenda?

claudia-valentino-with-a-degree-in-magazine-journalism-is-editor-in-chief-of-archaeology-magazine

Archaeology magazine Editor-in-Chief Claudia Valentino, with a degree in Magazine Journalism

Let’s look at the Top Four executives and editors at Archaeology magazine.

1)  Editor-in-Chief Claudia Valentino. Ms. Valentino’s archaeology background is nonexistent. She holds a B.A. in Magazine Journalism from New York University.

What has been Ms. Valentino’s performance at the helm of this prestigious magazine? Ms. Valentino has ignored communication about Bosnian archaeology for four years. Specifically, she has steadfastly failed to respond to emails regarding new findings in Bosnian archaeology, since January 5, 2013.

What does Editor-in-Chief Claudia Valentino believe is more important than an ancient megasphere (and prehistoric megalithic pyramids and other structures) in Bosnia? Her magazine’s annual Top 10 Discoveries  include “Colonial Cannibalism” (2013), and “World’s Oldest Pretzels” (2015).

jarrett-a-lobell

Archaeology magazine Executive Editor Jarrett A. Lobell, with a BA (?) in Classics, Archaeology; no photo available on the entire public internet (?). Mr. Lobell publishes occasional articles on the ancient history of Greece, Crete, and other cultures. One recent article Mr. Lobell penned is: “Pompeii’s Dead Reimagined,” which is about an artist bizarrely recreating the dead people of Pompeii, “interpretations” of human suffering while being smothered to death and/or burned alive by hot ash.

2) Archaeology magazine Executive Editor Jarrett A. Lobell has a BA in Classics, Archaeology. Mr. Lobell publishes occasional articles like “Medieval Fashion Statement.” He writes: “There are numerous medieval written sources that describe bras as ‘breastbags,’ but until this discovery no one had any idea what these garments looked like. . . . The discovery will enable archaeologists . . . to learn more about tailoring by women.

Archaeology magazine Senior Editor Daniel Weiss, with a degree in Journalism; previously editor at Pharmacy Times (?)

3) Archaeology magazine Senior Editor Daniel Weiss has a degree in Journalism and experience as editor at Pharmacy Times. Mr. Weiss’s archaeological education is zero. Two of Mr. Weiss’s recent articles are “Heart Attack of the Mummies,” which states that 50-year-old Ötzi the Iceman might have had a heart attack if he had lived to age 80 (uh, what?), and “Memo to science nerds: Learn improv,” which conjectures that improv class helps science presenters be more “vivid and expressive.”

4) Finally, we come to the mysterious Peter Herdrich.

peter-herdrich-ceo-at-aia-and-publisher-of-archaeology-magazine

Archaeology magazine publisher Peter Herdrich, CEO at AIA (Archaeological Institute of America), unknown studies at Colombia University with graduate work (degree?) in Arts Administration.

Peter Herdrich is the publisher of Archaeology magazine. For many years, Mr. Herdrich was CEO at AIA (Archaeological Institute of America). How he obtained this position with his educational background is unknown. Mr. Herdrich studied at Colombia University but did not complete his studies. He studied at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität in Germany but received no publicly available certificate or degree. Peter did graduate work at the School of the Arts at Columbia University (in Arts Administration) but again did not complete his studies.

Peter Herdrich’s publicly available, though not easily discoverable, CV is here. Mr. Herdrich’s current LinkedIn profile photo is below.

peter-herdrich-headshot-good

Archaeology magazine publisher Peter Herdrich biographical information: “Before moving into the not-for-profit world, Peter enjoyed long success in commercial television, primarily in news programming. He worked as a producer and writer at ABC, CBS Television Distribution, Disney, Fox, and NBC. . . . After finishing his undergraduate work at Columbia University (degree ?) and studying at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität in Mainz, Germany (degree ?), Peter did graduate work at the School of the Arts at Columbia University in arts administration (degree?).”

As we have seen, only one of the four persons mentioned above has a degree in archaeology. Although obviously a university degree assures us of nothing, it is strange that persons without any education in archaeology have three of the top spots at this prestigious publication.

Question: Why is Peter Herdrich, whose experience is in commercial television production, in charge of publishing a magazine about archaeology?

Question: Why is Jarrett A. Lobell, who has only a B.A. in archaeology, Executive Editor at Archaeology magazine? 

Question: Why is Claudia Valentino, whose education and experience has no relation to archaeology, Editor-in-Chief at Archaeology magazine? 

Question: Why is Daniel Weiss, whose education and experience has no relation to archaeology, Senior Editor at Archaeology magazine? 

Why are these four persons running the most prestigious archaeology magazine in the world?

A Bosnian Megasphere

Did you know that a giant stone sphere, the most massive ancient artificial stone sphere ever found, was discovered earlier this year in a country called Bosnia and Herzegovina?

megasphere-with-shawn-best_edited-1-best-new

Ancient history enthusiast Shawn Rateau stands by the megasphere, a giant artificially created stone sphere excavated in 2016 in Stone Spheres Park in Podubravlje, Bosnia. (Photo taken September 18, 2016 by Christoffer Kindmark.)

You wouldn’t know this fact if Archaeology magazine were your only source of information about archaeological finds on this planet. (More later about Archaeology magazine’s bizarre 10-year moratorium on Bosnian archaeology.)

Fortunately, although Archaeology magazine attempted to bury the discovery of the Bosnian megasphere under a mountain of silence, mega-news outlet Russia Today made a big deal about the Bosnian discovery.

RT sent their own people to a creek strewn with ancient stone spheres in a sleepy village called Podubravlje, Bosnia.

In fact, it was here in Podubravlje that, years earlier, Dr. Sam Osmanagich established Stone Spheres Park. Yes it’s true: Many ancient artificial stone spheres had already been found in the Zavidovici area before the ancient megasphere was discovered in 2016 (as can be seen in this video, “Trek to Stone Spheres Park in Zavidovici, Bosnia, June 21, 2015”).

Astonishingly, 80 stone spheres came out of a hill in Podubravlje in a rainstorm in 1936. Forty of the stone spheres floated down the creek to the River Bosna and disappeared during the original rainstorm in 1936. Today, only 18 stone spheres (some whole, some broken) remain in Stone Spheres Park.

The remaining 18 spheres (some pictured to the left and above), whole or broken, are undaunted survivors of extraordinary vandalism that occurred in the 1960s, when rumors that the spheres contained gold inspired Bosnian natives to begin taking sledge-hammers to the ancient stone balls — and/or to drill into the stone spheres and use dynamite to break them apart. No gold was found in the Bosnian stone spheres or in any of the stone spheres of Costa Rica — or in any other stone spheres across the globe in which it was presumed gold was hidden. Eventually, gold-seekers’ vandalism stopped worldwide.

Interestingly, the newly unearthed megasphere was actually discovered, in part, many years ago. According to an email sent to me by Dr. Osmanagich on September 1, 2016:

“Part of the stone ball [megasphere] was sticking out (approx. 50 cm radius [= 20 inch radius = 40 inch diameter = an area a little over 3 feet in diameter]) for the longest time. Only beginning of March [2016] two local men started clearing. They informed me at the very beginning so I suggested to keep working until my first visit in March.” Because no one knew how big the megasphere was, excavation had not been not pursued.

Why did Russia Today need to come to the rescue of archaeological science in the case of a gigantic stone sphere found in the Balkans? It’s a good question, and we’ll be pursuing that question later in the article. But whatever the reason(s) for Archaeology magazine’s disinterest, Russia Today was kind enough, and smart enough, to immediately fill the profound scientific vacuum created by Archaeology magazine’s inaction.

Russia Today wrote, plainly, lucidly, on April 14, 2016: “This may be the largest and oldest sphere carved by human hands in Europe. Its origins are still a mystery . . . The stone sphere has a diametre of around 10 feet and an estimated weight of 70,000 pounds. Hundreds of tourists from around the world have already descended onto the forest near the town of Zavidovici, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, to see the sphere.” Russia Today also made a real-time video of the continuing excavation of the sphere:

Russia Today made one understandable error in its text. RT wrote that the megasphere was “carved by human hands.” Although some stone spheres around the world may have been carved or sculpted, as opposed to molded, we know from scientific analysis that spheres in Stone Spheres Park similar to (though smaller than), and in the near vicinity of, the recently discovered megasphere were molded, not carved.

What Are the Bosnian Stone Spheres Made Of?

As Dr. Sam Osmanagich, Ph.D., told a group of visitors to Stone Spheres Park on June 21, 2015:

IMG_0870

Dr. Sam Osmanagich waits patiently for tourists to gather for a short lecture about the history of the stone balls in Stone Spheres Park, June 21, 2015 — nine months before the discovery of the megasphere. (Photo by Jock Doubleday.)

“We are the first . . . who actually analyzed the stone balls. We took traces from four of the stone balls, and one [sample] from the natural stone material. We did chemical and physical analysis. This is what we found out. Nine elements are exactly the same in the case of the stone balls and natural stone. And then one element only the natural stone has: SiO2 silicon dioxide. The stone balls don’t have it. They have two elements instead. One is manganese [Mn]. Manganese we use today to give the hardness to the material. And the second one is calcium carbonate [CaCO3], a binder. So, our conclusion: The builders of the stone balls were using natural stone, then melting it, adding the additives, to get the extreme hardness, and then pouring into the molds to get this spherical shape. And when they got dry, they got very hard and solid.”
– Dr. Semir Osmanagich, Bosnian Stone Spheres Park, Zavidovici, Bosnia, June 21, 2015

How Heavy Is the Bosnian Megasphere?

The Bosnian megasphere, an ancient stone ball found in Stone Spheres Park, has not been put on a scale, for reasons that are obvious. The stone is too heavy to lift by conventional and financially affordable means, and therefore the weight of this mega-stone must be deduced from its 1) size and 2) composition.

Interestingly, the Bosnian megasphere has a higher concentration of iron than the other stone spheres in the near vicinity in Stone Spheres Park. This higher iron concentration makes it, among other things, heavier. Why did the ancients want to make the largest sphere (so far found) in the vicinity the most iron-rich and therefore the heaviest? Unknown.

Laboratory chemical analysis was performed in September 2016 on two samples taken from the megasphere.

The Faculty of Mining, Construction and Geology at the University of Tuzla in Bosnia conducted the analysis. Master of Geology Mersudin Hodzic signed a statement in which he determined that the megasphere’s particle density (the ratio of particle mass to volume) is 2.64 grams / m3 (per cubic meter).

The weight of the megasphere, in kilograms, can be determined by multiplying particle density, or “specific gravity” (= 2.64 grams / m3) times volume (= 14.14 m3).

The weight of the megasphere found in Podubravlje is therefore an estimated 37.33 metric tons. (One metric ton = 1,000 kilograms.) 

This estimated weight makes the megasphere the most massive stone ball ever found on Earth.

As a comparison, we can look at the weight of other ancient stone balls found around the planet. The largest stone balls in Costa Rica (made out of a granodiorite, a mineral composite that reaches a 6 on the hardness scale) reach a top weight of 16 tons (article in Spanish). In western Mexico, near a town called Ahualulco, volcanic stone balls reach a weight of 35 tons, according to official on-site information.

A Bosnian Moratorium

If a giant ancient alien spaceship were discovered buried in the šuma (forests) of Bosnia, would Archaeology magazine cover the story?

Probably not.

Archaeology magazine has had a bizarre, indeed chilling, moratorium on Bosnian archaeology beginning a little more than one year after Dr. Sam Osmanagich discovered ancient pyramids in Visoko, Bosnia.

Could there be some ideological (or other) agenda on the part of Archaeology magazine that we’re not aware of?

If you visit Archaeology magazine’s official site, http://www.archaeology.org/ and type “bosnia” into the Search box, your results will include Bosnia-related articles only from 2005 and 2006 — all of which stridently and vociferously deny the possibility of the existence of pyramids in Bosnia. (One can also perform a Google search for “archaeology magazine” bosnia.)

Please note that no one at Archaeology magazine has ever published a statement to the effect of, “Further excavation in Visoko needs to be done for scientists to know the truth about the structures in Visoko, Bosnia.” Instead, Archaeology magazine’s reaction was 1) immediate and 2) negative. Should a science magazine declare an absolute negative before significant excavation has been performed?

The only mention by Archaeology magazine of Bosnian archaeology after 2006 is a two-line mention in October 2008: “Businessman Semir Osmanagic continues to dig up Visoko, Bosnia and Herzegovina, in search of pyramids, ‘despite ridicule.’ University of Sarajevo archaeologist Enver Imamovic likens Osmanagic’s project to ‘letting me . . . perform surgery.'”

In 7 years of Facebook postings, Archaeology magazine has failed to mention Bosnia once. (Neighboring Croatia has six mentions for four separate articles.)

archaeology-magazine-bosnia-facebook-search_edited-1

Archaeology magazine’s Facebook page hasn’t mentioned Bosnia once in seven years.

A study of eleven years of Archaeology magazine articles allows us to conclude that Archaeology magazine editors, specifically Editor-in-Chief Claudia Valentino and Executive Editor Jarrett A. Lobell, perhaps at the behest of unknown persons, have attempted (and, thankfully, failed) to keep the lid on the biggest archaeological discovery of the 21st century: the discovery of gargantuan ancient pyramids and other structures in Bosnia.

It cannot be asserted that Archaeology magazine editors have not been aware of the continuous stream of scientific information emerging from the excavation and study of the Bosnian Pyramid Complex since mid-2005. On October 16, 2011, I emailed a detailed letter to the editor of Archaeology, the full text of which is reproduced here (in a blog titled, “Letter to the Editor of Archaeology Magazine”).

For ten years, Archaeology magazine has ignored not only Bosnian pyramid science but all archaeological discoveries from the country of Bosnia. This astonishing fact — the fact of deliberate silence on the part of the most prestigious print publication representative of mainstream academic archaeology — speaks volumes.

A Rejuvenating Science Vs. a Moribund Silence

While the Bosnian megasphere continues to be unearthed and all the ancient spheres in Stone Spheres Park studied — the science surrounding these mysterious objects continually refreshed, replenished, revitalized — Archaeology magazine’s moratorium on Bosnian archaeology gets older, frailer, more rigid, unquestionably morbid.

The halls of archaeological academia have had a dank smell of death about them for decades — while independent researchers not tethered to universities have gone out into the field and made astonishing discovery after astonishing discovery after astonishing discovery.

Around the world, the dry offerings of mainstream archaeology — thin, tasteless orthodoxical wafers — slowly become staler and staler, until one day it will be impossible for anyone of sane mind to even consider consuming them.

New LIDAR Scan of the Bosnian Pyramid Complex Proves Dr. Sam Osmanagich Right — and Proves Dr. Robert Schoch, Zahi Hawass, Archaeology Magazine, and Wikipedia Wrong

By Jock Doubleday

In March 2015, a LIDAR satellite scan was made of the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids in the Visoko, Bosnia area. LIDAR (“light-radar”) scans provide a detailed topographical picture of the area scanned. 


The first LIDAR scan image of the Visoko area, finally available as of July 6, 2016, shows clear evidence of gargantuan ancient artificial structures.

The visibly predominant features of these ancient structures are smooth pyramidal, and other, faces oriented to the cosmic north (or “true north” or “geodetic north”).

An Astonishing Orientation

Astonishingly, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun has the best-documented orientation to the cosmic north of any pyramid on the planet thus far analyzed.

The phrase “best documented” means that the northern orientation of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun is the best orientation to the cosmic north of any ancient pyramid or structure whose orientation has been studied and documented. (There may be ancient pyramids or other structures on the earth whose orientations are superior to that of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, but these structures’ orientations have not yet been documented.)

The deviation from cosmic north of the gigantic clay, claystone, sandstone, and concrete pyramid in Visoko, Bosnia known as the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, according to the Bosnian Institute for Geodesy, is: 

0 degrees, 0 minutes, 12 seconds

In comparison, the deviation from cosmic north of the Great Pyramid is:

2 degrees, 28 minutes, 0 seconds

Thus, the orientation of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun to cosmic north is 12.33 times more precise than the orientation of the Great Pyramid.

Bosnian Pyramids Detractors 

Bosnian Pyramids detractors are now in a very difficult position. For 10 years, various persons and organizations relying on belief instead of science have 1) disparaged (and, even more shockingly) 2) ignored copious scientific evidence of an ancient pyramid complex centered in Visoko, Bosnia.

Because a 2015 LIDAR scan data has provided solid — indeed irrefutable evidence of gargantuan and truly ancient structures in Visoko, Bosnia, the final nail has been hammered into the coffin of Bosnian Pyramids detractors.

Who were the main players in this strange 10-year drama of Belief vs. Science?

Dr. Robert Milton Schoch

RobertSchoch

Robert Milton Schoch, Associate Professor of Natural Sciences at the College of General Studies, a two-year non-degree-granting unit of Boston University

In his November 10, 2006 letter to Science magazine, Dr. Robert Schoch maligned the Archaeological Park Bosnian NGO Foundation, stating that “fossils are being ignored and destroyed during the ‘excavations,’ as crews work to shape the natural hills into crude semblances of the Mayan-style step pyramids with which Osmanagic is so enamored.”

A claim of fraud is very big news in the archaeological world. Obviously, if such a claim is found to be false – that is, if the claim is found to be libel (a false accusation made in print) or slander (a false accusation made in speech or some other transitory form) – it is legally actionable.

Since pyramids have indeed existed in Bosnia since ancient times, and since volunteers and employees of Archaeological Park Foundation have been faithfully excavating these structures, and NOT creating modern-day steppyramids, Dr. Schoch is in fact on record for ten years of libel

Not only has Dr. Schoch been wrong for ten years about the existence of pyramids in Bosnia, he has left a libelous and slanderous legacy the likes of which has rarely been seen in archaeological circles.

Zahi Hawass

Zahi-Hawass-picture

Zahi Hawass, former Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs in Egypt, presently on the run for alleged theft of antiquities

Zahi Hawass, Former Minister of Egyptian Antiquities, was one of the first professionals to proclaim (without compelling evidence and without visiting the site) that no pyramids exist in Bosnia. 

Hawass has since been discredited — and is actually on the run — for allegedly stealing billions of dollars worth of Egyptian antiquities and possibly other crimes.

What was Hawass’s reaction when he heard of Dr. Omanagich’s claim that pyramids existed in Bosnia? He called a meeting of Egyptian officials to discuss possible negative ramifications to the Egyptian tourist industry

From the point of view of scientists and others endeavoring to discover the truth about humanity’s past, the absurdity of such a reaction“How will our tourist dollars be affected if pyramids are found in Bosnia?” — is almost impossible to put into words.

Archaeology Magazine

archaeology magazine copy

Archaeology magazine, the most prominent archaeology magazine in the world

If you visit Archaeology magazine’s official site, http://www.archaeology.org/ and type “bosnia” into the Search box, you will get articles from 2005 and 2006 — all of which stridently and vociferously deny the possibility of the existence of pyramids in Bosnia. (One can also perform a Google search for “archaeology magazine” bosnia.)

In Archaeology‘s July/August 2006 issue, for instance, non-expert Beth Kampschror writes in her article, “Pyramid Scheme,” that “the only people in the Balkans at that time [in which Dr. Osmanagich claimed the pyramids were built] were stone-tool-wielding Paleolithic people who never built a house, much less a pyramid.”

In his June 27, 2006 article, “More on Bosnian ‘Pyramids,'” Archaeology magazine online editor Mark Rose writes that Zahi Hawass “concludes that, ‘Mr. Osmanic’s theories are purely hallucinations on his part, with no scientific backing.'”

The only mention of Bosnian Archaeology after 2006 in Archaeology magazine is a two-line mention (and libel of Dr. Osmanagich) in October 2008: “Businessman Semir Osmanagic continues to dig up Visoko, Bosnia and Herzegovina, in search of pyramids, despite ridicule.’ University of Sarajevo archaeologist Enver Imamovic likens Osmanagic’s project to ‘letting me . . . perform surgery.'”

In fact, a study of ten years of Archaeology magazine articles allows us to conclude that Archaeology magazine editors, specifically Editor-in-Chief Claudia Valentino and Executive Editor Jarrett A. Lobell, perhaps at the behest of unknown persons, have attempted (and failed) to keep the lid on the biggest archaeological discovery of the 21st century: the discovery of gargantuan ancient pyramids and other structures in Bosnia. 

It cannot be asserted that Archaeology magazine editors were not aware of the continuous stream of scientific information emerging from the excavation and study of Bosnian Pyramid Complex since mid-2005. On October 16, 2011, I emailed a detailed a letter to the Editor of Archaeology, the full text of which is here (in a blog titled, “Letter to the Editor of Archaeology Magazine“). 

For ten years, Archaeology magazine has ignored not only Bosnian pyramid science but all archaeological discoveries from the country of Bosnia. (?!!)

Did you know that a giant stone sphere (the largest ever found) was discovered in 2015 near Zavidovici, Bosnia in Dr. Osmanagich’s Stone Spheres Park (or Stone Balls Park)?

You wouldn’t know this fact if Archaeology magazine were your only source for information about archaeological finds on planet Earth.

Fortunately, Russia Today made quite a big deal of the discovery. They sent their own people out to Zavidovici and made a video.

Could there be some ideological (or other) agenda at Archaeology magazine that we’re not aware of? If so, what is this anti-scientific agenda, and who is responsible for it?

Wikipedia Editors

For three months in the winter of 2015, at the behest of Dr. Osmanagich, I gathered information for a Wikipedia article titled, “International Scientific Conferences on the Bosnian Pyramids.”

I submitted the article to Wikipedia editors on January 29, 2015, but it was immediately rejected

Oddly, Wikipedia editors did not read the article or check the hyperlinks in the article. A full reading of the article and a full researching of the articles and videos pointed to by the hyperlinks would have taken a week, at minimum.

I edited the article and re-submitted it twice, but it was immediately rejected both times without any of the issues I brought up being addressed by any of the Wikipedia editors who “weighed in” (sent form letters to me) on the article.

The article survives only in draft form. “International Scientific Conferences on the Bosnian Pyramids” is not an official page on Wikipedia.org:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:International_Scientific_Conferences_on_the_Bosnian_Pyramids

In addition, many people have endeavored to edit two largely erroneous Wikipedia pages:

Semir Osmanagić: Excerpt: “Professional geologists, archaeologists and other scientists have concluded – after analysis of the site, its known history, and excavations – that the hills are natural formations known as flatirons and that there are no signs of human construction involved”) 

Bosnian Pyramid Claims: Excerpt: “[Claims of pyramids in Bosnia are a] cruel hoax.” 

All attempts at rectifying the egregious misstatements on these two Wikipedia pages have failed.

The Archaeological Orthodoxy’s Move

Now that the world has been offered conclusive indeed, irrefutable evidence of gigantic ancient pyramidal and other structures in the Visoko, Bosnia area (in addition to copious additional scientific evidence gathered over the period of 10+ years by Dr. Sam Osmanagich and scores of scientists and thousands of eager international volunteers working on the most active archaeological project in the world) . . .

1. Will Dr. Robert Milton Schoch return to the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids to witness what 10 years of excavation has accomplished since his initial and only visit in 2006? Will Dr. Schoch retract his unwarranted and outrageous libel (and slander) of Dr. Osmanagich and Archaeological Park Foundation employees and volunteers?

2. Will Zahi Hawass publicly acknowledge the artificial structural stone terraces on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon and the four layers of super-dense concrete on the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun (the hardest concrete ever analyzed, ancient or modern), and the ceramic megaliths, impossible to move by any known machinery, that lie next to newly excavated corridors in Ravne Tunnel Labyrinth, which winds for tens of kilometers beneath the Bosnian Pyramid Complex?

3. Will Archaeology magazine editors apologize to the scientific and world community for their 10-year moratorium on Bosnian archaeology? Will Archaeology once again begin to publish Bosnian archaeology articles? Will the entire staff of Archaeology apologize for committing perhaps the greatest hoax in archaeological history: the denial and ridicule of the discovery of the biggest ancient pyramids in the world?

4. Will Wikipedia editors apologize for ignoring plain science for ten years and for libeling and demonizing Dr. Osmanagich? Will Wikipedia editors publish articles on Bosnian Pyramid science and the copious scientific conferences that have been held in Visoko and Sarajevo, Bosnia? Will the Bosnian Pyramids mega-discovery be recognized and honored by Wikipedia as perhaps the greatest archaeological discovery of this century? Will Wikipedia editors allow real science to enter the hallowed halls of its heavily controlled pages on ancient history, or will the truth about humanity’s past continue to be suppressed?

In short, will the future be 1) a scientific future that recognizes scientific evidence or 2) an anti-scientific future that scorns it? 

It is the archaeological (and anthropological) orthodoxy’s move.

A Conspiracy of Silence

A conspiracy of ridicule against the Bosnian Pyramids Project — a conspiracy that spanned 2005 and 2006 — turned into a conspiracy of silence after it became clear that Dr. Osmanagich had indeed unveiled a great mystery in Europe. 

The conspiracy of silence continues to this day. Will the conspiracy end? Will it end with a cowardly whimper or with a courageous bang?

Only time will tell.
