I am genuinely confused as to what evidence led anyone to believe it was a man-made pyramid in the first place.
Semir Osmanagic, an explorer and writer of couple of books on alternative history has spent a lot of time studying pyramids and other artifacts around
the world. He is Bosnian who lives in the States from where he went on expedition on Balkan in search for stone spheres similar to the ones that can
be found in South America.
Some of the spheres supposedly have been found near city Visoko, where locals told him of pyramid-shaped hills that surround the city. And from his
previous knowledge about South American pyramids, Osmanagic concluded that hill has to be man made, as no where in world you find multiple hills, all
of them pyramid shaped.
To get funds for archeological dig, he had to acknowledge his find, and that is where all started. Because on the top of the hill lays necropolis,
site is well known for local archeologist, who felt ashamed by this claim (probably as they were unable to conclude the same before someone from USA
showed them something that laid in the front of their noses) so they spent most of energy and time to prove him wrong, but from their offices and
desks, instead by digging.
It is just recently that this site will get UNESCO specialists to confirm existence of findings and based on their report, whole location might become
protected and financed by UNESCO.
@Nygdan - I'll try to find source for that information, and will write more about it.
