ALL OVER THE WORLD massive underground facilities are being excavated. From the bizarre complex under Denver airport in the US, to the 5000 new ‘shelters’ being built in Moscow, to the miles of tunnels under Chengdu in China… the work continues apace…
Why? Nobody seems to know, but it wouldn’t be the first time that people, in large numbers, felt the need to shelter underground:
Derinkuyu Underground City is an ancient multi-level complex in Nevşehir Province, Turkey. It is on the road between Nevşehir and Niğde, at a distance of 29 km from Nevşehir. With its thirteen floors extending to a depth of approximately 85 m, it was large enough to shelter 30,000 thousands people together with their livestock and food stores. It is the largest excavated underground city in Turkey and is part of a network of several underground complexes found across Cappadocia. | More ancient sites
The massive European network of Stone Age tunnels that weaves from Scotland to Turkey
Stone Age man created a massive network of underground tunnels criss-crossing Europe from Scotland to Turkey, a new book on the ancient superhighways has claimed.
German archaeologist Dr Heinrich Kusch said evidence of the tunnels has been found under hundreds of Neolithic settlements all over the continent.
In his book, Secrets Of The Underground Door To An Ancient World, he claims the fact that so many have survived after 12,000 years shows that the original tunnel network must have been enormous.

That so many tunnels have survived after 12,000 years shows that the original network must have been enormous
Evidence of Stone Age tunnels has been found under hundreds of Neolithic settlements all over Europe—the fact that so many have survived after 12,000 years shows the original tunnel network must have been enormous:
“In Bavaria in Germany alone we have found 700metres of these underground tunnel networks. In Styria in Austria we have found 350metres,” he said.
There is a labyrinth of vaults known as an “Erdstall” near the town of Glonn near Munich. It is at least 25 meters (82 feet) long and likely stems from the Middle Ages. A few radiocarbon dating analyses have been performed, and they indicate that the galleries date back to the 10th to the 13th century, but Heinrich Kusch believes that these results are incorrect. He suspects that some of the subterranean systems were built about 5,000 years ago, in the Neolithic period.
For several years now, he has been probing Austria’s Steiermark region with giant drills for “gateways to the underworld.” | More: deutsch-heute.blogspot.com
“Across Europe there were thousands of these ancient tunnels—from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean.
“Most are not much larger than big wormholes—just 70cm wide—just wide enough for a person to wriggle along but nothing else.
“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.”
Some experts believe the network was a way of protecting man from predators while others believe that some of the linked tunnels were used like motorways are today, for people to travel safely regardless of wars or violence or even weather above ground…
