I am an Archaeological Investigator from New Zealand working to reveal what is the Worlds largest pyramid- Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, a mega 220m tall x 440m wide man made structure. This represents anomalous evidence to ancient advanced civilisation dating back more than 30,000 years- It’s a game changer, defying the prevailing theory organised civilisation and the formation of city states began just 8,500years ago. This is my 3rd year running the archaeological dig which has attracted 1500 volunteers from 52 countries.

The Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids is located in the Visoko River Basin 30km N/W of Sarajevo. The valley comprises 4 pyramid structures (Sun, Moon, Love & Dragon), a mountain ridge known to have Neolithic ruins Temple of Mother Earth, and a number of Tumulis (Barrow/Mounds) all set out in the aerial map.

There is evidence of extensive occupation across several cultural layers stretching back 7,000 years and then a jump to the pyramid structures @ approx 30,000 years. Organic material was retrieved in September 2013 from beneath construction material on pyramid of the Sun and Radio Carbon Dated to 29,200 yrs +/- 400 years- refer Certificate below.

My proposal is to create a large scale physical 3D printed model of what lies beneath the foliage and top soils, revealing an as yet unseen complex. To achieve this I will develop a method of interfacing LiDAR (Aerial Laser Sans), geotif files and 3D printing to produce a detailed model of a geographical area never seen before in such relief detail. An objective is use this technological development to reveal buried structures, which are so old they are covered in soil and forests, their specific alignments, geometry, relationships to each other and roads, causeways or associated structures not visible at ground level. The result will be a comprehensive 3D topographical model including photomography overlays- eg actual pictures of the ground surface features folded over the map and 3D printed model to present a comprehensive relief of the pyramids and spacial relationships. Other archaeological projects have employed celestial based lasers to scan, for instance, the Guatemalan jungle, however, this project differs in a number of ways in application of 2 convergent technologies to arrive at a single and comprehensive survey model that can be used on archaeology sites all over the World.

A bit more about the site- The Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids is producing a wealth of scientific data evidencing an advanced lost culture. The share scale of the architectural structures, their precision alignments and the underground tunnel system that connects them is truly impressive. We believe that our investigation will lead to discovery of technology and energy systems not yet in use by 'modern' man.

This is a shot taken 6 months ago of the tunnels scientific section leading to Pyramid of the Sun. We have excavated 800m of tunnels, discovered 5 buried ceramic megaliths ranging in sizes from 700ks/8,500ks to 25,000ks and recovered approx 120 ancient stone artefacts. I am including this to convey the complexity of the project both above and below the ground.

Risks and challenges

Risk and Challengers- The ultimate objective is to demonstrate the remarkable man made mathematical symmetry of this complex, thus overcoming the old argument they are coincident natural features. We intend to unlock their secretes, lost culture and lost knowledge- energy systems, construction materials, technique. The challenge is largely contracted out to the LiDAR scientists and 3D modelling experts- produce accurate laser data which they do on a regular basis for Oil & Gas Industry. Risk- is foreign intervention to capture the technologies discovered- this is an adventure into the unknown!- Join with me and be part of history making! It is better to open ones eyes, look and understand than pretend nothing exists at all.
