Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids

Dr. sci. Semir Sam Osmanagich

The concept of the structures built in the shape of the pyramid with the inner chambers and passageways and the orientation toward the cardinal points had been present worldwide from Central and South America to Africa, Asia and Europe. Different civilizations, in different ages, used them for different purposes. Still, some questions remain open regarding the logistics, age and the use of the structures.

The discovery of the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids in Visoko (Bosnia-Herzegovina), in 2005, requires the traditional definition of a "pyramid" to the reconsidered and widened. Certain astronomical and mathematical knowledge incorporated in Bosnian pyramids are similar to Egyptian true pyramids, Chinese or Mexican step pyramids.

Huge construction work had been performed in the Visoko Valley. The elements of both: the superstructure (natural core, nucleus, outer- facing)and the substructure (tunnels, corridors) have been discovered but yet to be proven as a part of the master plan. It will be archieved through the combination of classic geo-archaeological methods, advanced geo-radar and satellite technologies.
