Across Europe, there are countless number of tunnels that stretch across but archaeologists just discovered one of the most advanced and knowledgeable underground tunnel from 12,000 years ago and the has simply shocked scholars today.
No one really know why yet but 12,000 years ago ancient people began digging massive tunnels to connect continents but they are fascinating.
These tunnels spread from Scotland to Turkey, 2,798.3 miles, and researches are still in shock.
Questions have been raised as if whether these were used as tombs or for religious rituals? Or did the ancient man create these to secure themselves from catastrophe?
German Archaeologists Dr. Heinrich Kush believes that these tunnels were used as modern-day highways allowing people to travel. These tunnels still exist today across Europe.
“Across Europe, there were thousands of these tunnels – from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean. 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.” – Dr. Heinrich Kush
There aren’t any definite explanations for these tunnels that satisfy researchers. The tunnels are designed to give pathway to historic churches and cemeteries and were built by those who knew exactly what they were doing.
Experts have also denoted that such extensive tunnel work is for ancient people to prevent themselves from dangers of the outside world to move freely during war. A world under the world.
The tunnel proves that ancient man was not only interested in hunting, yet was also interested in engineering and has been doing so for a really long time.
