12,000 Year Old Massive Underground Tunnels Found from Scotland to Turkey

12,000 Year Old Massive Underground Tunnels found from Scotland to Turkey

Is it possible that ancient cultures were interconnected thousands of years ago? According to thousands of underground tunnels that stretch from North Scotland towards the Mediterranean the answer is a big yes. While the reason behind these sophisticated tunnels remains a mystery, many experts believe that this huge 12,000 year old network was built as a protection against predators and other dangers 12,000 years ago. Some experts believe that these mysterious tunnels were used as modern-day highways, allowing the transition of people and connecting them to distant places across Europe.

In the book Secrets Of The Underground Door To An Ancient World (German title: Tore zur Unterwelt) German archaeologist Dr Heinrich Kusch states that evidence of huge underground tunnels has been found under dozens of Neolithic settlements all over the European continent. These tremendous tunnels are often referred to as ancient highways.

According to Dr Kusch, the fact that many of these tunnels still exist today, after 12,000 years indicates that the tunnels must have been both complex and huge in size.

“Across Europe there were thousands of them says Dr Kusch,” in Germany we have discovered hundreds of meters of underground tunnels. In Austria we have found hundreds more. These underground tunnels can be found everywhere across Europe and there are thousands of them.” Said the German archaeologist.

While some of the tunnels are relatively small- some of them measure over a meter in width, there are other tunnels that have been found with underground chambers and storage areas.

The fact that these tunnels have been found points towards incredible ancient ingenuity which is anything but what history books tells us today. Ancient mankind had the knowledge and tools to build complex structures over ten thousand years ago. Evidence of that are the Pyramids of Bosnia in Europe and their incredible underground tunnels that go on for kilometers.

Dr Kusch states that ‘Across Europe there were thousands of these tunnels – from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean. They are interspersed with nooks, at some places it’s larger and there is seating, or storage chambers and rooms. They do not all link up but taken together it is a massive underground network.’

Cappadocia in Turkey is another incredible example. The underground city of Derinkuyu is another piece of evidence which points towards the perfection and long-lost construction methods of our ancestors. The underground city of Derinkuyu is perhaps one of the greatest achievements in underground construction together with the huge network of tunnels. The geological features of the stone from Derinkuyu is something that is very important; it is very soft. Thus, the ancient builders of Derinkuyu had to be very careful when building these underground chambers providing enough pillar strength to support the floors above; if this was not achieved, the city would have collapsed, but so far, archaeologists have not found evidence of any “cave-ins” at Derinkuyu.

Other ancient monuments such as Gobekli Tepe are more pieces of crucial evidence that point towards incredible skills and knowledge by people who inhabited our planet over ten thousand years ago.

According to Dr Kusch, chapels were often built at the entrances to the underground tunnels because the Church were afraid of the heathen legacy the tunnels might have represented, and like many other things, the church wanted to make sure word about the tunnels was kept as a secret.

In some of the tunnels writings have been discovered which refer to these underground tunnels as gateways to the underworld.

      I’m sorry but I do enjoy a conspiracy and I like to believe in an alternative history but an underground tunnel network from scotland to turkey :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

      Stop it!!!!!!! as a professional Tunnel Engineer I will not entertain such a ridiculous theory, I’ve listen to the possibility of nuclear powered TBM’s for the deep underground tunnelling in the US which is difficult to accept but this takes the biscuit…I won’t even hit play. If you are not a professional engineer then posting such garbage holds not even an ounce of credibility.

        The only thing that is hard to believe is that people have been getting lied to about history and lots of other things. There are patents for the nuclear tunnel boring machine filed at los Alamos national laboratory during the 60s or 70s. I have seen them on the web. I have also seen a picture of the machine that was owned by the air force and it did not have cutters on the face, it had melting pods. I am not going to do research for others, but curious people can find stuff.

        As for tunnels stretching from Scotland to turkey, I doubt they are continuous, but ancient tunnel systems do exist, not only in Europe, but also in the middle east and north America. There was a documentary about this on tv several years ago, called cities of the underworld. People think atlantis and Lemuria are fiction, but I do not think so.

        I think you misread, or misunderstood. The article does not suggest “a” tunnel stretches from Scotland to Turkey. It’s stating there are massive, underground tunnels found from Scotland to Turkey. Meaning they found many of them, not one long one.

        “‘Across Europe there were thousands of these tunnels – from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean.”

        “They do not all link up but taken together it is a massive underground network.’”

        • Stan Hail

          The title is misleading but like you said the Dr Kusch that’s quoted quoted says “They do not all link up but taken together it is a massive underground network.’

        Bercegi to Egypt one was found by Edgar cayce.

      • 2QIK4U

        Read. What’s beneath Bercegi mountains by Edgar cayce. Bercegi is in Romania. A long way from egypt and yes the military became involved eventually.

      • 2QIK4U

        Sorry it’s spelt BUCEGI

      bomb the fuckin tunnel ?sharpish

    • last_layman

      hmm, so what was the reason for such kind of network? If some small stone age tribe used their limited resources for centuries into digging miles of tunnel network with nothing else than a pikes and stone axes, they would have very good reason for going underground?

      • wiseoldlady

        Could it be they lived above ground in warm weather and went underground in the winter? There are so many intriguing concepts.

      • Godzilla

        The reasons were a)to escape plunder from enemies b)for shelter against the weather c)underground economy.

        In America they had speak easies to drink alcohol, gamble, have sex with prostitutes. In Vietnam and japan they used elaborate tunnels to hide weapons, food/water, to regroup and plan attacks from. It was hard for the enemy to find them and eradicate them. The entrances were well camoflagued.

        In ancient times much of the same. And perhaps the UFO threat was more serious back then, who knows? Just because a topic is censored does not make hogwash.

      From the looks of it I’d say that Fred Flintstone and his neighbor Barney Rubble must been really busy working on THIS !!!
