12,000 Year Old Underground Tunnel Civilization Stretched 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.

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.

The book notes that chapels were often built by the entrances perhaps because the Church were afraid of the heathen legacy the tunnels might have represented, and wanted to negate their influence.

In some cases writings have been discovered referring to the tunnels seen as a gateway to the underworld.

Read the entire article at Daily Mail and see several pictures of the tunnels.

Hayden’s Note:

While the above article details smaller tunnels and cave networks spread across Europe, the story of Derinkuyu is a fascinating one.

Below are some images of the “Underground City” of Derinkuyu, Turkey.  Some scientists date it to around 1200 BC, while others believe it is far older and was simply used by the Hittites in and around 1200 BC to avoid a bloody attack from the Thraces.  Some of the “Ancient Alien” theorists debate whether it was used 10,000 to 12,000 years ago in order to avoid the massive “sky wars” and nuclear explosions that the ancient Sumerians spoke of. 

There are several other massive underground cities in the region, some being able to hold 60,000 people!
