Notice the 45 degree angles

And here is a proper view of the Visosica in Bosnia:
 
Visocica 
This is not a Tel or unnatural mound produced by constand building upon an inhabited site, and from this angle the "staged" photography of Osmaganic disappears! But, it is clear that sarcasm escaped you when Noah's Ark was mentioned...
Here is another angle with some more stones--the larger ones are Medieval tombs:

A medieval fortress used by Bosnian kings for two centuries sits on top of the Visocica hill. The fortress was built over a Roman Empire observation post, which was built on the ruins of an Illyrian settlement. The Illyrians inhabited the Balkan peninsula long before Slavic tribes conquered it around A.D. 600.

 Do people wish to inquire as to the relationship of Illyrians to Albanians!?! As for the more preposterous imagery of Osmaganic, please. Now, if anyone is interested in my discovery of Noah's Ark Cheeky

 This is what you said and I agreed. Now someone has agreed you wrote;

Now you see it and now you dont. You mean all the building activity you formerly mentioned has disappeared now? Just what are you trying to say and what has Noahs ark got to do with it?

I'm endlessly fascinated by the reach of the Roman Empire. They must have been something during their time.

We also have.

First, Nallo seen through the pass:



Secondly, the Pyramids of the Vldal. Note the 45 degree sides and sharp edges, impossibly a creation of nature!

Elenos, I never denied archaeological remains on the hill, but these have been known for years. As for the rest, I guess I'll just have to be careful when making what in English are puns and "inside" jokes as with the reference to Noah's Ark...

Drgonzaga, you could try telling a story to illustrate your point. Like how at one time the Turkish government threatened to shoot the next team of "biblical experts" that came along to dig up Mount Ararat, they were doing untold damage to the environment by digging holes  and grabbing every stick of wood they could lay their hands on. Then the authorities wised up. It costs millions of dollars to get a permit to dig there now and yet the bible bashers still come!

I believe you mean "bible bangers" and not "bashers" since the latter connotes the world of skepticism, elenos. We enter into strange worlds when people pursue archaeology in order to confirm preconceptions or pet theories, For example, when the Paleolithic caves of France and Spain were discovered in the 1850s along with their marvelous art, the supposed scientific experts called the discoveries a hoax because they conflicted not only with the self-esteem of modernists but also with the new pet theory, evolution. Even today, much grumbling takes place, because archaeology is often in conflict with accepted prejudices and assumptions.
 
 
However, in the instance of these Balkan pyramids we are confronted with something akin to the Jesus sarcophagus and other outlandish claims lacking sound archaeological investigation. A lot of strange things are coming out of the Balkans these days, including Marian apparitions, and where there is publicity commercialism will soon follow.

Hi Drgonzaga, "bible basher" is an venerated Australian term. It found a place in Australian history when a former Prime Minister called a former state premier a "bible bashing bastard" meaning the politician was fond of sucking up to the religious right wing movement to get their vote. We do tend to have a politically incorrect way of speaking.

I agree, the European caves changed our perception of prehistory. The reality of the age has been preserved and bugger not having any writings about those times for the pictures tell us so much more. When Picasso went to see the cave art he burst into tears and said none of his efforts could ever match those made long ago. I admire both Picasso and cave art. There is a freshness, a vitality in the bold simple lines that gives an overwhelming sense of the figures being immediate.

With the Balkan pyramids what can you do? As I pointed out before most of the sites have been wrecked and looted a long time ago. If nothing else the sites are good for bringing in the needed tourist dollar. You seem to be afraid of commercialization, but progress is a necessary evil that keeps on happening.I indicated in another thread I want to live on an island of bare breasted beauties, but so far as I know there are none left. From here to Timbuktu the natural exposure of mammary is only a memory. These objects are seen in certain clubs of course but that is a different subject where the tourists actually pay to see them.

we could call this "pyramidization" of natural surrounding.Maybe some Egyptian prince had spent exile days(or appointment to serve!) here and needed similar surrounding as in native country.Have been founded tombs in basement or nearby?!?I believe that those are natural hills but pyramid shaped from outside.I have been in Vitez town 27 years since now and climbed on hills.Than i did not believe that i had had goat beard also so story tales about this were just a jokes,now it looks real.
