German Pyramids? Who's next?

The less informed layman and even the expert may be surprised by this fact, but there are good reasons to believe in german pyramids. The archeological outcome offers only one conclusion.
They are the biggest monuments of the Megalith-culture on the continent. Their size even exceeds on all the stony step-pyramids of  brittany. There they are called "cairns" -  prehistoric grave-houses and step-pyramids built in stone without mortar including one or several burial-chambers like dolmens or vaults of corbel-stone. The most famous example is the "Cairn of Barnenez" (picture 1).

picture 1: Barnenez
The Cairn of  Barnenez during its reconstruction at the beginning of the 60s. The steps are planar. Before the disclosure of the burial-chambers, the monument looked like a scree or rubble heap, covered by rubble and debris.

So not proof whatsoever they ever were pyramid-shaped?

Yes, there is, the sentence you quote is describing the condition when they were first found.
 
 
 
 
They are described as being two distinct step pyramids.

Although I can't see any reason why the Germans shouldn't have had pyramids when everybody else had them , I would like to point out that the "Cairn in Barnenez" is actually in France, in the Normandy, and I somehow fail to see the connection with Germany or the Germans.

Thie enforces my theory of an ancient civilization that shaped all that followed it. It's weird that throught Europe, Egypt and Central and South America we discover so many similar monuments.

Weird?Egypt had lasted 7000 years according known documents and artifacts.What did they do all this time?Waiting for Godot?You would have not been there if they did it.Big smileGerman negation "Naj(Y)N" reminds
me they were there.Affirmative "Ya" speaks about destiny had been happened after they were enslaved.Will
do guess here:Rome!("Ya"=mortal one and "NayN"=superlative of strong one=strongest/literary=best mother's).
