This one is, in my opinion, one of the most interesting stories to come out of archeology since Gobecki Tepe, and indeed, the two stories may be connected. But we'll get to that later. The story concerns the discovery of an underground network of tunnels.

Nothing unusual about that, of course. After all, cavemen are not called cave men for nothing.

Except that this network of apparent tunnels stretches - possibly - from Scotland to Turkey:

Extensive Ancient Underground Network Discovered From Scotland to Turkey - 

"German archaeologist Dr Heinrich Kusch, in his book ‘Secrets of the Underground Door to an Ancient World’ revealed that tunnels were dug under literally hundreds of Neolithic settlements all over Europe and the fact that so many tunnels have survived 12,000 years indicates that the original network must have been huge.

"'In Bavaria in Germany alone we have found 700metres of these underground tunnel networks. In Styria in Austria we have found 350metres,' he said. 'Across Europe there were thousands of them - from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean.

"The tunnels are quite small, measuring only 70cm in width, which is just enough for a person to crawl through. In some places there are small rooms, storage chambers and seating areas."(Emphasis added)

If Dr. Kusch's hypothesis is correct, that the tunnels of European stone age sites were once part of a continent-spanning network, then it would be similar to claims made for such a network spanning the length of the Andes chain in South America, a network which does exist, though we are uncertain of its precise extent.

The question is, why would such a network have been constructed in the first place, and one answer would be that it may have been in response to some catastrophe or perceived catastrophe. It is, in short, possibly ancient man's underground "continuity of government" or "continuity of culture" network. On this basis, one could perhaps entertain the speculation that such networks represented some ancient "breakaway civilization" network of installations similar in respect to our own civilization's underground bunkers, cities, and research facilities, though the size of the ancient structures is, in most cases, dwarfed by the modern. In this respect, I am struck by the fact that Dr Kusch's tunnels include "seating areas" and "storage chambers," areas where stockpiles of food, weapons, and other essential items were perhaps stored.

In this respect, it is perhaps also worth recalling that such claims for an extensive but unknown European-wide tunnel system were made by various European esotericists in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and that the Nazis actually mounted explorations of some of these networks through the SS Ahnenerbedienst. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) the Ahnenerbedienst's files remain mostly archived in the US National archives, and therefore, little is known of what these expeditions uncovered, if anything.

In any case, the presence of such networks in Europe and South America would also suggest that whatever these systems were created for, they were perhaps in response to a global "situation," the first manifestation of the underground bunker.

And that, of course, invokes other possibilities of what they were built in response to, or worse, in preparation for.

See you on the flip side.

    What about those little skeletons that they found, could they be related? the size of the cave would make for a perfect place for these little dudes.

    I was thinking that given the scope of the tunnels, you would think under construction that lives would have been lost. At some of the furthest points from an exit to the surface i would be almost impossible to pull out bodies. I would think they would have left the bodies somewhere in the tunnels so you would think that skeletal remains would be found somewhere. Thats why I was thinking of the little skeletons found.

    A lot of questions to be answered.

    Here is the Project Camelot video in which Dr. Paul LaViolette is interviewed.

    He discusses the scientific evidence for a Galactic Superwave originating from the center of the Galaxy due to trace elements found in ice cores.

    In high-octane speculation (I borrowed the phrase Dr. Farrell – thanx) he is advised that a superluminal American spacecraft was sent out and that a Galactic Superwave is currently headed towards our fine Planet.

    Here’s my high octane speculation.

    The loosing side of the pantheon from the cosmic war used these caves as their fallback position after they lost the last cosmic war. Once the earth was blasted (and the humans wiped out) by the other side of the pantheon, the losers went back into their holes and prepared for another run at building up humanity. The workers for the loosing side are probably the “grays,” as the good doctor (Farrell) has pointed out in the past how the grays seem best suited for living underground.

    “And that, of course, invokes other possibilities of what they were built in response to, or worse, in preparation for..”

    Dr. Paul LaViolette describes such an event in his book “Earth Under Fire” – which I found in my local library. His website is well worth a look and I highly recommend the book. Take a look around.

    Jon says: “but there are certainly others to whom such a small tunnel would be no barrier at all – fun even.”

    Check out the little green guy riding on the shoulder of another cryptid. What are they?

    Interesting after all the denials the scientific establishment or at least some are owning up to past civilizations. What other secrets will be sprung on us in the future as for the Ahnenerbedient discoveries one can only guess what their records contain.

    These are pretty small tunnels to be of much use to a normal sized (or giant) person. 70 cm is only about 2 feet (in real mesurements). Of course, he said “wide,” he did not say “diameter” – they could be taller than wide unless he is just imprecise in his use of language (although he does say just enough for a person to crawl through, so I assume he meant “diameter,” not width.)

    Trying to get food or weapons through a 70 cm diameter tunnel would be a nightmare, and the logistics would argue against these being very useful – again, for a normal sized person (4-6 feet tall) – maybe this speaks to much smaller people being responsible for them? (Gnomes and dwarves? Greys? Children?)

    Emergency shelter makes the most sense, although a secret meeting place for a select group to avoid eavesdropping could also apply. Ceremonial chambers, perhaps? A place to hide the kids from giants or child-sacrificers?

    The legends I have heard about speak of tunnels quite large enough to walk through upright, and here on the West Coast of the USA, the legends speak of tunnels through which one could hike from Alaska or Canada all the way to the bottom of South America. (Don’t know how the Panama Canal might have disrupted that.) Said tunnels are also connected to “others” living underground, some of whom are not friendly, so the trek is not supposed to be an easy or safe one.

    Of course, I am not a spelunker, and would never put myself in such a tiny space, but there are certainly others to whom such a small tunnel would be no barrier at all – fun even.

    Interesting, no matter what the details of use, and certainly worthy of further research.

    Whenever I think of Underground Realms and Underground Civilizations, I’m always reminded of HG Wells ‘The Time Machine’ (mostly because the original movie scared the bejeezus out of me as a kid). There we saw the sheep-like Eloi living a seeming idyllic life above-ground, with the nasty Morlocks living underground — but the Morlocks, it turned out, were simply tending the Eloi as their livestock for slaughter and consumption.
    Funny, that idea doesn’t seem as far-fetched to me now.
    Didn’t Wells use some sort of Egyptian symbology on the Morlocks’ underground world?

    absolutely fascinating info- I can’t get enough of this- I love a good mystery especially if it’s based on historical facts/discoveries 🙂

    “After all, cavemen are not called cave men for nothing” lol!- absolutely right, Dr. Farrell- we’ve been “taught” that we homo sapiens sapiens ca.12.000+ yrs. ago were nothing more than slobbering apes- I somehow don’t think so- the team Cremo/Thompson proved that concept to be fiction a long time ago-

    aside from the Great Pyramid I think unmasking the riddle of Göbekli-Tepe may be a major clue into at least a beginning of understanding the human race’s heritage (or a survivalist’s documentary of a previous cataclysm)- in any case Göbekli-Tepe, if my read sources are correct, has only been less than 20% investigated- why?- “officious story” states the stone of the caves is too soft- i’s too dangerous- well, maybe, but it was obviously not too dangerous to the builders otherwise they wouldn’t have burrowed so far- the ancients were far from stupid-

    the Göbekli-Tepe cave-system also has air shafts; unanswered question: if ever occupied, what would’ve been their light source (or any other cave in Europe or elsewhere)?; electro-magneticized crystals?- haven’t ruled that out yet- I think a major concept that most haven’t considered about caves that continue for hundreds of miles is the required collective oxygen/light sources, especially if the caves are only 70cm wide-

    just food for thought-

    take care Dr. Farrell and readers-

    It is that damn Sun I tells ya. He goes haywire from time to time, especially when He is not being propitiated properly. The ancients knew it and the Breakaway civilization knows it. If you haven’t started building your own tunnel system, you better get digging. We can’t rely on the technology of the Breakaway Civilization to thwart any Solar outburst. The pre-Egyptians couldn’t do it. Moreover, it will be centuries before we can revive the global Solar Religion again, and usually this happens only after the fact– when the surface of the Earth is charred and everybody suddenly realizes who the real God of the solar system is. We don’t even know what the thousands of pyramids on this planet were built for but something tells me they had to do with placating the Sun. You may as well start building yourself a backyard pyramid while you are at it.

    Apocalypse theater? Maybe, but don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.

    I’m also reminded of the intriguing theory of Dr. Farrell that the alien greys look like a subterranean creature. Human like creatures who fled underground and stayed there too long? Or, inhabitants of a tunnel system of Mars?
