More on the Bosnian "pyramid"

Anthony Harding, head of the European Association of Archaeologists, had this to say about the alleged 'Bosnian pyramid' which has garnered so much media attention over the past months:

"My opinion and the opinion of my colleagues is what we saw was entirely geological in nature."

Not surprsing, given some of the first pictures of the so-called find to have been released publicly. Notice the lack of actual archaeological pictures as opposed to the abundant "pop culturalization" of the phenomenon! Anybody thinking that this is not a natural formation needs a stiff dose of reality poured in their morning coffee.

I still can't believe how much publicity this story has been getting, all with but the slightest in the way of supporting documentation. If you invent it, they will come, as they might say!

Read more about this story and the EAA take on things here. There is also a very good debunking and discussion of the implications of the claims made about the pyramidal nature of this Bosnian hill on this page of Archaeology's web site, which is an official publicaion of the American Institute of Archaeology.
