This is something I found on a fun site and found it worth posting here on ATS.

Just outside of Maastricht (Netherlands) in the Belgian countryside lays Eben-Emael, an inactive fortress that saw a decisive Nazi victory in May of 1940. Since the war the fort has been been abandoned but is still open to the public. With a few relics leftover, there wasn’t a whole lot to see. That is, until 1963 when a man with a religious obsession and too much time on his hands decided to build a medieval looking tower.


Well, interesting, but that's nothing ancient, however:

The most interesting thing about the tower is where the basement leads; an ancient series tunnels that go on for miles. Many of the tunnels lead to dead ends, but some turn into vast, winding labyrinths where quarries, ancient tools and fossils have been discovered. According to Robert, one of the tunnels leads to an ancient town which he claimed was “70 million” years old and housed a never-discovered civilization.

One of the others sources mentions this:

Some distance from where his tower is, following the underground tunnels, he found an underground village. This village, he claims, was once cut into the rocks, but was exposed to the open air. On top of the village are now three layers of ocean deposits, showing that Belgium has been covered three times by the ocean. This means that the village existed some 70 million years ago. In archeology this is unheard of. Moreover, he says that all the walls, and stone benches had been cut into flint rock, and that all surfaces in these houses are smooth. This is a second anomaly, as flint cannot be worked, it chips, and stays rough.

I find it quite interesting, it feeds the rumors of "the hollow Earth" and unknown advanced civilizations. My gut feeling says there is more to this because there are so many rumors about advanced civilizations from around the world. When I have the time, I will visit the place and have a look by myself, it's only 60 miles from where I live.

Great thread! How did you find out about this place? I've never heard of it...I'm doing some research in the morning. Thank you! S and F!

Interesting thread , s&f from me ...

History is very light on truth , and here is a
fascinating glimpse into an unknown past .,
that cannot be de-bunked . Uncharted and
extensive tunneling with smooth walls ,
surely point to a mystery of epic proportions .
It has been said mankind has existed four times ,
previous to our known civilisations. Near extinction
events occurred to wipe all but the hidden
evidence , away . .... Giving rise to Noah legends .
It has also been hinted that these forgotten peoples
had technologies that elude us now .
It amazes me that such a site has been ignored ,
and that many more discoveries lie down there !

I'm amazed that it's "in my backyard", the more I research the history of the Region I live in, the more fascinating things start to surface. For example the many myths and stories about dragons in the area. Maybe I will go there in two weeks and visit the place.

It sounds like he may have encountered a neolithic flint mine

Would be great, I have to talk to my girlfriend about it to see if she comes along and when. BTW, Sundays (25th?) would be best.

Seriously cool find would love to know more about it. Shame that the mining engineers destroyed the tunnel. Maybe there is another entrance.Hope you guys can get in. Pics would be fastinating.

Interesting find even if it ended up being only a neolithic mine site as Hanslune suggested. Too bad it was destroyed.

BTW, found a documentary about this. Unfortunately for me, it's not in english
so, if anyone would be so kind, a translation would be very helpful.

If he is telling the truth he would have provided proof. If he did not prove it immediately he is likely delusional, hoaxing or lying. This one appears easy to write off as nonsense.

Did someone shoot Santa Claus in front of you as a child?

This is a very fascinating thread, be it true or false, it inspires thought and may provide connections to someone reading this.

Thanks for sharing, S+F.

Sorry I'll try to be more lackadaisical in the future! I've seen a few of these in Europe and they often had rude shelters attached to them, a habitation. The flint miners were also aggressive and would follow a vein - which would account for the remnants being under other layers. Pure speculation on my part as we have little real information. I would suspect that there is an archaeological report on that site in French or Flemish, probably from the 19th century. A local Librarian would probably know that or the faculty of the nearest college, perhaps Liege or Maastricht.

Ah - answered my own question, the other name for where the fort was is Mount Saint Peter's and it is noted for its neolithic flint mines......

I would suggest also looking at the Neolithic flint mines in Spiennes, Belgium for an example of this type of mine

This remindes me of H. P. Lovecraft - "The Rats in the Walls" The tower, leading to tunnels, which leads to older and older towns and such. Just thinking about this is giving me the Willies!
