There has been a flurry of activity at the Bosnian Pyramids this summer: the summer of 2013.
So far, there have been people volunteering, cleaning and securing additional meters of the prehistoric tunnel network. Volunteers have also been exposing more of the ancient concrete on the surface of the pyramids, connecting two archaeological trenches at the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. Time was spent clearing access paths to the Pyramid of the Sun as well as the Pyramid of the Moon’s archaeological sites. (July 14th, 2013)
Underneath the layers of vegetation covering the hills in Visoko, there are layers of concrete making up what is known as the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids.
One of the Bosnian Pyramids, the Pyramid of the Sun, is approximately one third taller than the ancient Egyptian Great Pyramid. The Pyramid of the Sun is constructed of five thick layers of concrete (sandstone slabs, almost one meter thick for each layer), with each layer containing a fifteen centimeter layer of clay in between. Underneath the concrete and clay, the inner pyramid consists of sandstone blocks. (May 9th, 2013)
In the Valley of the Bosnian Pyramids in the town of Visoko, closest to the Pyramid of the Moon, a Tumulus has been found in the village of Vratnica.
A tumulus is a mound of earth, usually placed over a prehistoric tomb. The Tumulus of Vratnica is a 32 meter high manmade hill, discovered in 2008. An exposed clay-and-concrete megalithic block was found, which was discolored due to its contact with the elements. Soon after this discovery, more blocks were found, which lead to what appeared to be a huge megalithic terrace and possibly a gateway to the Bosnian Pyramids.
