Going underground

A new book on ancient superhighways claims that Stone Age man created a massive network of underground tunnels criss-crossing Europe from Scotland to Turkey. Evidence of the tunnels has been found below hundreds of Neolithic settlements all over the continent, says German archaeologist Dr Heinrich Kusch.

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.

“In Bavaria in Germany alone we have found 700 metres of these underground tunnel networks. In Styria in Austria we have found 350 metres. Across Europe there were thousands of them from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean," Kusch told the Daily Mail newspaper.

“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.”
