World’s Oldest Pyramids Found in Alaska Shocks Scientific Community
Submitted by Need2Know on May 25th, 2013 – Flag this news as inappropriate
Could it be possible that Alaska has the world’s oldest man made
pyramids? And, if true, is the recent snow and ice melting going to
reveal even more ancient structures in the future? Amazingly, a small
team of explorers has just announced that they have indeed found at
least two ancient pyramids. Currently, only the upper portions of the
pyramids are exposed but the general shape is obvious. The team was able
to find the outer rock edges of one pyramid and the stones were
obviously stacked one on top of the other (comparable to Egypt
pyramids). The team actually made the discovery by accident while on a
hiking expedition. They were able to take some pictures of the pyramids
which are shown below.
So if these pyramids are indeed man-made then we have to ask the
question of Who built them and why? Historians tell us that the first
humans to enter North America settled during the end of the last ice age
(approx 12-10,000 years ago). The Clovis culture generally are
considered to be the first culture to develop during this time period
but no evidence has ever been found that they constructed any pyramids
or even any megalithic monuments. So, are we looking at a completely
different culture, here? One that has been lost to history until now?
The team that made the discovery is currently planning another
expedition to further research and investigate these ancient monuments.
They are currently searching for additional people such as
archaeologists, engineers and geologists to add to the team. They hope
to return to the pyramids next summer season to confirm their findings.
Several pictures are shown above of the pyramids that the team found. Take a look and see what you think.
An additional piece of interesting news with this discovery is that
this is not the first pyramid to have been found in Alaska. A large
underground pyramid is supposed to lie between Nome and Mt. Mckinley
that dates back many thousands of years ago. This was discovered in the
early 1990′s. More information on this discovery can be found here: www.earthfiles.com/news.php?ID=2000&;category=Environment
