Mysterious underwater pyramids put scientists in a dead end - March 31, 2010

March 31 2010

Underwater Archaeology - calling special. aqualung invention allowed the researchers to excavate the past independently and conduct reconnaissance. Archaeologists have disappeared under the water about a hundred years ago and today have earned universal recognition. The leading foreign universities even appeared specialization - an underwater archaeologist. In some countries, underwater archeology has become a priority in historical research. A discovery, which makes underwater archaeologists , sometimes mind-boggling.

Maybe they will solve the mystery of another ancient pyramid found at this time in China. Step Pyramid is found at the bottom of the lake Fusyan (south-western Yunnan province).

The height of the pyramid is 19 meters, the length of its base - 90 feet. Enigmatic structure is built of stone slabs and consists of five steps. Two upper level of the pyramid, made of sandstone, are destroyed. And the rest of berms, built of limestone, a more solid rock is well preserved. It is interesting that at the bottom of the lake Fusyan there, at least nine sites of this size and the number of medium and small plants of another species has thirty.

As suggested by the head of the Archaeological Center at the University Kunshen Lee, the object is the creation of an ancient civilization . The area of the architectural complex is about 2.5 square kilometers. From the lake bottom, archaeologists raised an earthen vessel, which is made during the Eastern Han Dynasty, which ruled in the 25 - 220 years BC.

Meanwhile, underwater pyramids found in the past.

In 1968, pilot R. Brasch in the Bahamas Bimi-ni and Andros saw under the water surface of large stone buildings. Researchers using underwater archaeologists, and the results of aerial survey discovered the destroyed building, a pyramid with a ground 54x42 meters, streets, city walls, the port breakwaters with large, mysterious circles, lined with huge stones and much more.

In 1936 F. Morgan, the doctor saw the three pyramids at the bottom of Rock Lake near the town of Maryland (USA). Divers examined them and confirmed that this is really a pyramid with square and rectangular base, as well as "cut" node.

In 1973, on board the vessel "Akademik Petrovsky made pictures of huge block of buildings located on the ocean floor about 240 miles south-west of Portugal.

One of the most interesting discoveries occurred in 1985 when the coastal waters of a small Japanese island of Yonaguni local diving instructor Kihachiro Arataki stumbled upon a strange object. Not far from the shore just beneath the surface of the waves, he saw a huge stone monument that stretched to the limits of visibility. Wide flat platform, covered with ornaments of the rectangles and diamonds, crossed into intricate terraces cascading down the big steps. Edge of an object is dropped vertically down the wall to the bottom at a depth of 27 meters, forming one of the walls of a trench running along the entire monument.

Elements of design seemed to have very definite architectural designs reminiscent of stepped pyramids of ancient Sumer .

p align = "justify"> discovered ruins became a subject of debate, which was attended by both historians and geologists. Despite the strict plane right arc and perfectly straight and parallel edges of the elements of the complex, all carved in the rock, most scientists persistently called this building "bizarre game of natural processes."

Seriously only reacted to the discovery of Masaaki Kimura - Professor at the University of Ryukyu, a recognized expert in the field of marine geology and seismology. As a result of his research, Professor Kimura has decided to go against the overwhelming majority of historians and risk his reputation by defending artificial origin of the found object.

Disputes could go on for very long if it were not for scuba divers, who found evidence of artificial origin wholly-owned Japanese submarine complex. A group of researchers, sent the broadcaster Discovery Channel, found at the bottom of the sculpture of a human head, with a characteristic headdress of feathers, clearly echoed similar sculptures of Central America.

Moreover, it became clear that the temple near the coast of Japan, which was built from multi-ton stone blocks and high-altitude sanctuary of Machu Picchu (the city-fortress of the Incas), have similarities in design decisions. In two cases, in areas of convergence of the walls of the builders laid T-shaped blocks, providing a "seamless" connection.

Applying a unique processing technology, the anonymous masters created such cultural monuments have withstood earthquakes and hundreds of years of constant exposure to winds and cold rains.

Remains a mystery, as a culture, originated in the foothills of the Andes, could leave such a significant mark on the coast of another continent.

Incidentally, the summer of 1991 the famous oceanographer Dr. Meyer Verlag at a press conference in Freeport made a very mysterious statement. He claimed that during the test the bottom of the famous "Bermuda Triangle" at the very center with the help of special equipment at a depth of 600 meters were discovered two giant pyramids , is larger than Egypt's Great Pyramid.

According to scientists, they were built relatively recently - about half a century ago - and made for an unknown technology from a material similar to the very thick glass. Dr. Meyer referred to his fellow scientists to report on the results of studies with drawings of the pyramids and their exact coordinates. He also said that in late summer, intends to take an underwater expedition to the Pyramids. The results of these studies are still unknown.
