Amazing underground communications network in Europe. Their purpose is still a mystery.
There are several theories explaining why these tunnel systems were created. One theory is that they were built as a defense during times of trouble. Another is that someone was slowly traveling along these ancient highways from point A to point B, etc. Perhaps these were trade routes between different cultures.
But is it possible that ancient cultures were linked thousands of years ago? And for this were used underground tunnels that stretch from North Scotland to the Mediterranean Sea? The answer is a sure YES.
While the real reason for the construction of these complex communications remains a mystery, many experts believe that the huge network was built to protect against predators and other hazards 12,000 years ago.
Some experts also believe that these mysterious tunnels were used as modern highways, allowing people to move and connect remote locations across Europe.
In Secrets of the Underground Door to the Ancient World (German: Tore zur Unterwelt), German archaeologist Dr. Heinrich Kusch argues that evidence of large underground tunnels has been found under dozens of Neolithic settlements across the European continent. These huge tunnels are often referred to as ancient "roads".
According to Dr. Kusch, the fact that many of these tunnels still exist today, 12,000 years later, shows that the tunnels must have been both complex and enormous in size.
“There were thousands of these tunnels all over Europe,” says Dr. Kusch. “In Germany, we found hundreds of meters of underground tunnels. In Austria, we found several hundred more. These underground tunnels can be found everywhere in Europe, and there are thousands of similar ones,”said the German archaeologist.
While some of the tunnels are relatively small - just over a meter wide - there are others in which underground rooms and storage areas have been found.
The fact that these tunnels were discovered points to the incredible ingenuity of ancient civilizations about which we know nothing more than what the history books tell us today.
In fact, ancient humanity possessed the knowledge and tools to create complex underground structures over ten thousand years ago.
The proof is the Pyramids in Bosnia and their incredible underground tunnels that stretch for kilometers.
Dr. Kusch states that: “There were thousands of these tunnels throughout Europe, from the north in Scotland to the Mediterranean. They are interspersed with shelters, in some places they are quite large and have seating, or lockers and rooms. They are not all connected to each other, but this is a huge underground network."
Cappadocia in Turkey is another incredible example. The Derinkuyu Underground City is additional evidence that points to the perfection of skills and the long-lost building methods of our ancestors.
Derinkuyu Underground City is perhaps one of the greatest achievements in underground construction along with a huge network of tunnels. The geological features of the stone in Derinkuyu are that it is very soft, and this is a very important point.
Thus, the ancient builders of Derinkuyu had to be very careful when building underground rooms. And these struts provide sufficient strength to support floors and ceilings. If this had not been done, the city would have collapsed. But so far, archaeologists have not found evidence of any "blockages" in Derinkuyu.
Other ancient sites, such as Göbekli Tepe, are also important evidence of the incredible skills and knowledge of the people who inhabited our planet more than ten thousand years ago.
According to Dr. Kusch, chapels were often built at the entrances to underground tunnels because the Church feared the pagan heritage of the tunnels that they represented. And perhaps, like many other things, the church wanted to make sure that the information about the tunnels was kept secret.
In some of the tunnels, inscriptions were found, from which it follows that these underground tunnels were used as "doors" to the underworld.
