I'll quote from the bottom -- the introduction. There is already a new article "Of closets, skeletons and rolling stones" at the top of the blog.

The first visitors to this blog will need no particular introduction. The information that will be presented here is about the phenomenon of the so-called ‘Bosnian pyramids’. It is not just an archaeological or a geological phenomenon, as its producers would have you believe. It's more of a contemporary sociological and anthropological phenomenon of a whole society being manipulated into embracing pseudo-science as a patriotic duty and a civilizational value.

Imagine for a moment. The British Museum has its ceiling collapse for the second time in one year. Some of its most valuable and unique collections are in grave danger. The Museum's Library is closed because there’s no money to pay for heating and maintenance. The lack of adequate heating in winter poses another danger to the Museum artefacts. The British Minister of Culture not only does not hand in a resignation, but does not even give a public statement. At the same time, the Ministry of Culture and the British Parliament, along with several other government bodies and state-owned companies, donate hundreds of thousands of euros to a group of New Age followers who are digging up Stonehenge and claiming that the site hides remains of a 27.000 years old civilization. British politicians – instead of trying to save the British Museum or to protect the British historical and cultural heritage and values – try to convince the UNESCO that these New Age claims are rooted in scientific evidence.

Imagine what an episode of Monty Python that would be.

And now for real. On September 6, the ceiling of the National Museum of Bosnia-Herzegovina collapsed for the second time in the last twelve months. The damage from the first incident earlier this year has not yet been treated because of lack of money. The second incident threatens not only the existence of the valuable artifacts, but also the entire existence of this Bosnia-Herzegovina's oldest scientific and cultural institution. The Bosnian Culture Minister does not resign and does not even issue a public statement. Instead, his Ministry hands out an emergency sum of money, which is not sufficient to meet even the damage from the first incident.

Other government bodies, responsible for directing allocated budget for financing and maintining the National Museum – such as the Ministry of Civil Affairs and the Council of Ministers – do not even address the issue. Several of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian cultural institutions, including the National Museum, even had to announce a law suit against the Council of Ministers for not giving them the money that has already been allocated by the budget and that sits in the government bank accounts.

Let me repeat that – our scientific and cultural institutions have to sue our own government for not giving them the money that our budget provides for these institutions.

Simultaneoulsy, the director of the Pyramid Project, Mr. Semir Osmanagic, recently tells a Croatian newspaper that his project costs 50.000 euros per month. These costs are largely met by tens of thousands of Bosnian convertible marks (2KM=1€) from the government budget and are poured into the Bosnian Pyramid Project through donations by government bodies such as the Ministry of Civil Affairs, the Foreign Trade Chamber, the cantonal Ministries of Culture, municipal funds, state-owned companies (e.g. BH Telecom), etc.

Imagine what a scandal that should be. But for some reason, it is not. For some reason, it is considered a patriotic duty to accept the certain demise of the existing historical and cultural heritage of our country and to exchange it for a fake.

This blog will bring English translations and summaries of months of analyses, information gathering and photos from articles published in BCS* by the APWR.

APWR is not an organization nor it is affiliated with any interest group in this ongoing phenomenon. It is a small team of four Bosnian-Herzegovinian individuals who do not believe that truth and patriotism are mutually exclusive concepts.

Well I think you may have a bit of a wait - it'll be a while yet before Osmanagic finishes building them, if he ever does

I think you guys are going to be very embarrassed one day soon. What he's digging up may not be a pyramid, but it's definitely a structure that was unknown previously. They may be diverting funds from mainstream archeology for now but it'll pay back in tourist dollars and renewed interest in archeology.

May one ask what evidence you have that suggests this?

Because as far as I know, the only known site was a medieval fort built at the top of the main hill overlooking the town. The majority of the excavation so far is at the base and sides of a different hill entirely.

I'm pretty sure the hills that osmanagic is slowly converting into his idea of what 25,000 year old pyramids should look like have been known of for a very long time

If this has been known about for such a long time and nobody bothered to excavate, that would explain why the government stopped funding the National Museum. They must be truly incompetent.

Here's just a quick sample of some of the stuff uncovered. There are several molds like the one in the center, some for knife and axe blades, some for hammers and other objects, some still with traces of metal that could identify the era I'm sure. It's pretty hard to believe he's faking this..

The link in the original post had this interesting comment to say about the ruins.

"...pyramids of the Sun, the Moon and the Dragon were built like hollow objects..."

apwr-central.blog.com...

The Teotihuacan complex in Mexico also has a pyramid of the Sun, Moon and Dragon. The Dragon being the Temple of Quetzalcoatl the feathered serpent. How did they come to the conclusion that the Bosnian pyramids were to be named that way?

Osmaganic named them after the pyramids of Teotihuacan which he says he spent 15 years studying. His tax records indicate that he was working as an enginner in Houston the whole time

he claims that they were built by the Maya who then vanished off to the Pleiades with their alien buddies which explains their dissapearance.
the Maya who still live in the region find this quite funny

He has also claimed that his pyramid was built by Aliens/Atlanteans/Maya/Illyrians/Moslems at different points and to different interviewers

Osmaganic made the south american connection after realising that the Visoca hill was orientated to the same N,E,S,W, cardinal directions as mesoamerican pyramids which in fact are on the most part orientated to the north north east

he has a book out called "the world of the maya"

its both ludicrous and funny all at the same time
