Massive underground tunnels of Stone Age stretch from Scotland to Turkey

Massive underground tunnels
History   An ancient underground superhighway

There are thousands of underground tunnels across Europe, stretching from the north in Scotland leading all the way down to the Mediterranean. This 12,000-year-old massive underground network is very impressive. Some experts believe the network was a way of protecting man from predators.


Others suggest the linked tunnels were used as an ancient underground superhighway for people to travel safely regardless of wars, violence, or even weather above ground.

“In Bavaria in Germany alone we have found 700 meters of these underground tunnel networks. In Styria in Austria we have found 350 meters. Across Europe there were thousands of them – from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean.

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.”
