'Pyramids' discovered in Ukraine
BBC ^ | 07 Sep 2006 | Helen Fawkes

Posted on 09/07/2006 4:34:27 AM PDT by Marius3188

Ukraine may be thousands of miles away from Egypt, but archaeologists there say they have found pyramids.

It is claimed that the monuments have been uncovered in the east of the country and that they predate the pyramids in Egypt.

But the claim that there is evidence of pyramids is being disputed. The prestigious Academy of Sciences has sent its own expert to the dig.

It believes that this could be the Ukrainian version of Stonehenge.

This could be one of the most exciting archaeological discoveries in recent years.

It is claimed that pyramids are buried underground in eastern Ukraine. A team digging at a site near to the city of Luhansk has unearthed a huge religious complex.

It has uncovered remains which are believed to date back thousands of years.

The archaeologists say that clay plates, weighing each at least two tonnes, were arranged in circles and plastered over.

It is thought that it will take years for archaeologists to uncover the hidden truth.

In the meantime, tourism chiefs are keen to cash in and are already planning to open a hotel nearby.

I've been to Stonehenge...there aren't any pyramids there.

There was a claim not too long ago of pyramids in Bosnia...wonder if the same guy has moved on to Ukraine.

Pyramania - Alan Parsons Project

There are pyramids in my head
There's one underneath my bed
And my lady's getting cranky
Every possible location
Has a simple explanation
And it isn't hanky-panky

I had read
Somewhere in a book, they improve all your food and your wine
It said, that everything you grow in your garden would taste pretty fine
Instead, all I ever get is a pain in the neck and a
Yap yap yap yap yap yap yap

I've consulted all the sages
I could find in the yellow pages
But there aren't many of them
And the myan panoramas
On my pyramid pajamas
Haven't helped my little problem

I've been told
Someone in the know can be sure that his luck is as
Good as gold, money in the bank and you don't even pay for it
If you fold, a dollar bill in the shape of the pyramid that's printed on the
back
It's no lie
You can keep the edge of a razor as sharp as an
Eagle's eye, you can grow a hedge that is vertically straight over
Ten feet high, all you really need is a pyramid and just a little luck
I had read, somewhere in a book, they improve all your food and wine
I'd been told, someone in the know can be sure of his good luck
It's no lie, all you need is a little bit of pyramidic help

Wonder why, whatever it is, is covered up?

Intentionally buried?

I see a big difference between a pyramid and something like Stonehenge. Wonder why there is debate on this ... . A claim for attention or resources to uncover it?

I used to live in a little town not far from Lugansk. I trust the scientists weren't confused by one of the many 'terrakoniki' out there ;-)

That's a 'terrakonik', also called a 'terrakon'. It's the junk that the coal mines dreg up. That particular one is from the 'Komsomolskaya' shaft which goes down 1800 meters.

An Indian company (Mittal?) recently has been reworking the tailings.

Friends over there said that they used to ski on them in wintertime, but the rest of the year they are dangerous.

I just returned from the Ukraine, and I know what you mean about the feeling towards the Russians. By the way, the "3" ( I know that's just a three, but am not sure how to do Cyrillic in html) is a Russian letter right? If I learned one thing it's not to use Russian letters in the Ukraine. Let me know if I'm totally wrong here though...

The '3' is actually a Ukrainian 'z', the same as the 'z' in Belarusian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Russian, and Serbian. Most of the Ukrainian alphabet is the same as the Russian, except for two versions of the 'i' and 'e'.

So that word would be 'Pizdets' (nasty nasty), pretty much the same word in Russian.

The language is very similar, too, but don't tell tell the Ukrainians that ;-).



I think the language historians have decided that Russian is derived from Ukrainian, and not vice versa.

Out in East Ukraine, the 'Donbas', the population almost exclusively speaks Russian and has little inclination to learn Ukrainian. Some people told me that that area was historically Russian, and that Khrushchev got drunk and re-drew the maps. Ukrainians, on the other hand, say that Stalin did his work well, so that the nation is pretty much split down the middle at the Dnepr, 50:50 Ukrainian/5th column.

Where were you at?
