1 A Crimean pyramid? on Sun Sep 16, 2012 8:32 am


Crimean pyramid?

Philip Coppens

of the most remarkable stories I came across in my hunt for pyramids
for “The New Pyramid Age”, was the alleged discovery
of pyramids in the Crimea. Crimea is an autonomous republic of
Ukraine, situated on the northern coast of the Black Sea, occupying
a peninsula of the same name.

Gokh at the site of his discovery

To provide a quick historical overview of the location: the earliest
inhabitants of the area that archaeology has found traces of were
the Cimmerians, who were expelled by the Scythians (Iranians)
during the 7th century BC. The remaining Cimmerians that took
refuge in the mountains later became known as the Tauri. According
to other historians, the Tauri were known for their savage rituals
and piracy, and were also the earliest, indigenous inhabitants
of the peninsula. In the 5th century BC, Greek colonists began
to settle along the Black Sea coast, among them the Dorians from
Heraclea, who founded a sea port of Chersonesos outside Sevastopol.
It is near that city that one Vitalij Gokh claimed to have discovered
a pyramid in 1999.

had worked for the Soviet military for more than thirty years,
before retiring to his dacha in Sevastopol. With time on hand,
he decided to engage in lines of research that his career had
never allowed him to do. One of these was the exploration of his
new surroundings. This led him to discover… a pyramid…
but not as anyone would know one.
The public were told of the “pyramids of the Crimea”
in the summer of 2002, when Gokh made his claim: there were pyramids
buried underneath the earth, as well as under some of the coastal
waters of the Crimea – an area known to contain some submerged
How had he made this discovery? As a former engineer, he was well-acquainted
with instruments using magnetic resonance, and had built a device
of his own making. As the area of Sevastopol was known for its
poor water supplies, he developed an instrument to search for
subterranean naps of waters; the instrument performed extremely
well during testing, and Gokh was ready to begin a survey of the
Sevastopol area, in search of potable water.
Their fame spread; in 2002, Gokh’s group was invited by
the government of Mauritania to find water in the Western Sahara.
In the area of the town of Atar, the team claimed that a large
supply of fresh underground water was located. This preliminary
conclusion was confirmed by drilling. Under the layer of solid
eruptive rock, at a depth of 240 meters, an underwater stream
was indeed discovered. The value of these resources was enough
to provide all necessaries in water of the region.

he had refined the system so that specific type of photography
could occur from the air, thus able to cover larger areas; he
also adapted the system for the search of oil, gas and precious
metals, finding a willing partner in the oil company Chernomornefte-gaz.

entrance shaft to the underground pyramid

As early as the summer of 1999, his instrument had uncovered an
underground anomaly on the periphery of Sevastopol: it was, as
Gokh would later claim, the first pyramid. On site inspection
revealed at first a rather ordinary, rocky landscape, but they
then found an opening, leading down. At a depth of 9.20 metres,
there was one solid slab of chalk. Trying to penetrate through
the slab – with little success at first – Gokh and
his partners in exploration succeeded to shine a lamp into the
cavity: it was empty, even though from the ceiling, some quartz
stalactites hung down – matched by similar ones that grew
from the ground up. The team believed they had stumbled upon an
old crucible, but could not find any traces of metal. They continued
digging, but it was equally clear that Gokh’s group of three
(both of his colleagues, Dr. Mukhudin and Dr. Taran, being engineers
as well) needed more manpower; five other people were invited
to join.
Soon, several limestone blocks were found. As these had regular
dimensions, ca. 2.5 by 1.5 metres, it was assumed these had been
man-made. Having worked over a distance of thirty metres and analysing
what they had discovered so far, one member of the team, Taran,
suggested they had definitely discovered a pyramid. The problem
was: it was underground.

the spring of 2000, Gokh had once again improved his instrument,
which now also allowed for vertical surveys. This could potentially
corroborate the shape of the structure they had found. The result
was that they were indeed inside a structure that had a square
base, each side measuring 72 metres long: it was a pyramid. Its
height was ca. 45-52 meters, its top almost at ground level.
The instrument also apparently revealed that from the top of the
structure, three beams of energy emanated, at frequencies 900x109
Hz, 700x109 Hz and 500x109 Hz. Around the pyramid, a field of
10x109 Hz was noticed. The digging also revealed signs in the
surrounding layers that the pyramid had originally been open to
the air, but that flooding at some point had brought in clay and
other substances that one would associate with an area that became

there is one pyramid, could there be more? The search area was
extended. Eventually, the team concluded that on a straight line,
that went from Sarych to Baia Kamyshovaia, and which runs northwest-southeast,
a total of seven pyramids were present. One of these pyramids
was located under water, near the city of Foros. Finally, Gokh
extended his search for the entire Crimea peninsula and concluded
that there was the possibility of a total of thirty-odd pyramidal
structures for the whole country. At the same time, the scans
had revealed another anomaly, of an object that was not pyramidal
in shape; its curious profile, turned towards the west, suggested
a structure that might be quite similar to that of a Sphinx.
Spirits were high and something seemed to be moving. But as all
of these pyramids seemed to be located underground, excavation
would be both costly and time-consuming. The next step was thus
the most difficult of all: money. Only money would allow the team
to continue the excavations in such a manner that would result
in the confirmation that the Crimea had at least one – if
not several – pyramids.

next step was also the problematic one. The town of Sevastopol
and the National Academy of Sciences of the Ukraine were not interested.
Still, Gokh’s insistence resulted in some form of co-operation,
which resulted in a ground survey of the area. It stated that
the area had been inhabited, with signs from the 4th century BC
until the first centuries AD. Such a survey did not contribute
much, nor reveal anything that wasn’t already known.
But there were certain reasons why these institutions were unwilling
to fund further research: as is so often the case, they boiled
down to rather extra-ordinary claims made by the discoverer himself.
If Gokh had merely argued that the Crimea had at least one, potentially
up to thirty pyramids, it would have laid a solid foundation for
further archaeological research. Instead, Gokh added further speculation
that these pyramids were part of a global system, whereby various
rather high-tech regulators – the pyramids – were
used to receive cosmic energy, which was modified, and then distributed
across the planet. According to Gokh, the pyramids were scientific
instruments, there to control and stabilise the land masses of
planet Earth. Add to this the date he proposed for their construction:
the system would be approximately 16,000 years old – or
date from 14,000 BC. Even Graham Hancock, Robert Bauval or John
Anthony West only dared to posit 10,000 BC for the Sphinx –
and leave any speculation about the age of the Great Pyramid up
to the reader’s mental workings.

of the diagrams produced by the team, explaining the construction.

than these rather extravagant claims, the Crimean pyramids did
not make it into the book for a more mundane reason: all we know
for sure is that there is one vertical shaft, descending near
Sevastopol, in which Gokh’s team have been doing excavations.
Though they have produced some rather nice graphs as to how the
entire pyramid is supposed to look, I did not see any actual scans
from the instrument Gokh had developed to back the graph up. Though
I discovered two email addresses for Gokh, one was defunct; from
the other I never received a reply. It was therefore possible
that there was something to it, but it was still far too early
to say what. Furthermore, my judgment was that even if they proved
to be pyramids, they were unlikely to transform the overall pyramid

after the completion of the manuscript, in July 2006, Gokh tried
to use the interest in the Bosnian pyramid to gather interest
in the Crimean pyramid, repeating that he needed money to finish
his excavations. Despite needing more money, the statement said
that tens of scientists from different countries were now performing
an archaeological excavation of the pyramid, and that a result
was expected later in the summer. Several months on, there was
no information made public and Gokh’s contact details once
again did not solicit a reply.
Unfortunately, Gokh not only stood by his previous rather extravagant
claims, he now elaborated on them, stating that “the majority
of scientists [that had visited the site] consider that the underground
pyramids of Sevastopol confirm the guess of American scientists
[that] about 65 million years ago an ancient civilization died
out because of the fall of giant meteorite.”
This is something of a muddled statement: indeed, American scientists
such as Luis Alvarez argued that the dinosaurs became extinct
when a giant meteorite hit the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 65
million years ago. But the likes of Alvarez do not make any provisions
for pyramids, or an advanced human civilisation building these
pyramids – let alone the Crimean pyramids being part of
such a theoretical network. Furthermore, would “real scientists”
claim that these pyramids were 65 million years old? It seemed
very unlikely.
Gokh did not stop there: the line along which the seven pyramid
sites on the peninsula were found, runs, as mentioned, from northwest
to the southeast. Gokh had now extended this line to gigantic
proportions, arguing that Stonehenge was located on this line,
while on the other side, he located “the pyramid of Tibet”
and “sunken pyramids of Easter Island” – both
rather imaginary pyramids. Worse, he then linked both imaginary
pyramids to the lost civilisations of Atlantis and Mu.

obviously had hung the theory before the pyramid, and not the
other way around. In good 19th century tradition to link the dimensions
of the Great Pyramid with the Bible and a biblical timeline, Gokh
had used an unexcavated pyramid – which might not be a pyramid
at all – as “proof” of a lost, global civilisation.
The worst was his speculation that this pyramid, together with
other, non-discovered and hence most likely non-existing pyramids,
were there to “balance out” the Earth – potentially
in 14000 BC – or 65 million years BC.

Not to cut any pyramid theory short without giving it a proper
airing, Gokh claims that “astronomers already noticed that
some planets radiate more energy, than receive from the Sun. The
similar situation is observed also with some stars.” According
to Gokh, this was due to “torsion energy”, developed
inside the centre of the Earth. “The source of fuel for
such a reactor is a physical vacuum – the torsion field
of the Universe. It consists of two opposite kinds of particles:
torsions and antitorsions. In a torsion reactor […] an effect
of torsion and antitorsion ‘frequency acceleration’
is taking place up to such degree that they begin to merge and
initiate a chain reaction.”
He continues: “the source of a subtle feed of celestial
objects is provided by a Galactic Beam, emanating from the centre
of the Galaxy. Consistently passing seven cosmic belts, it synchronizes
its vibration. The energy liberated as a result of such frequency
reduction (braking frequency), is directed on power maintenance
of celestial objects’ live ability.” In case you wonder
what this has to do with the pyramids: “These energies come,
in particular, to a nucleus of the Earth, from stars through pyramids,
mixing up in a power cocktail by means of a Shamballa Crystal
– a kind of a carburettor – and then are delivered
to the Earth Nucleus.”

tunnel inside the pyramid

is yet to come: the claim was made that there were 144,000 pyramids
on Earth, varying in size and location. The basic pyramids were
grouped in twelve places on all populated continents. All pyramids
were connected by power channels, to other “pyramid fields”
and to the crystal nucleus of the Earth, which controlled the
operation of the system. Twelve basic groups of pyramids, control,
in turn, another twelve smaller groups, or, to throw in some mathematics:
12 times 12 equals, 144 times 1000, equals 144,000. In case you
are wondering, each of the 144 basic pyramids controls the operation
of another 1000 pyramids. And just like the Great Pyramid before
was linked with the Bible, guess what: the 144,000 pyramids of
the Earth correspond to the 144,000 Biblical Chosen Ones. “Each
of the 144,000 chosen has a pyramid of ‘his own’.”

have not written this expose of the Crimean pyramids to make fun
of Gokh’s theories or thinking. I have used it to show that
Gokh is a modern-day example of “the pyramidiot”,
a term used by archaeologists and Egyptologist largely to denote
a profile of people who read much – too much – into
a pyramid (specifically the Great Pyramid), a practice that was
common in the late 19th century, and which saw, in the eyes of
the Egyptologists, a resurgence in the late 20th century, specifically
with the likes of Robert Bauval and co.
The “pyramidiot” is typically “an amateur”,
in the best sense of the word, who believe, often rightfully so,
to have made a discovery. They try to interest archaeologists,
but this seldom works. Consequently, they often begin to formulate
stronger claims, or theories, in the hope that some people will
hear, and in a rather vain hope that archaeologists will now definitely
have to take note. Then, often, archaeologists still do not engage,
and a dangerous chasm is breached, in which the mind does indeed
seem to spin out of control, and “the pyramidiot”
is born.

discoverers, in whatever field, take it to “step two”:
going slightly too far in their claims, thus exposing themselves
as someone who is easily shot down. It is unfortunate, and unfortunately,
few interested parties seem able to show forgiveness for unguarded,
often one-off remarks, said in the best of interest. The best
example of this is Sam Osmanagich, who may have once said that
possibly the Bosnian “Pyramid of the Sun” might have
been 12,000 years old. Archaeologists entered an endless debate
whether he said it, where, and used the very fact that they were
debating the issue as proof that they should not direct any attention
to the pyramid itself. It is typical of how the field of archaeology
often spins incredible tales themselves, creates character assassinations
that are as idiotic as the pyramidiots are supposed to be in their
Unfortunately, in the case of Gokh, his claims were so outlandish,
that the Crimean pyramids have gone largely unreported. But it
seems that there is at least something there. It may even be a
pyramid. It seems, however, that no-one is willing to do even
the most basic validation of that possibility. And that is idiotic
