Huge network of Stone Age tunnels found

A vast network of neolithic tunnels built 12,000 years ago would have criss-crossed the UK and Europe.

The tunnels have been found underneath sites all over the continent, some are so small that a person can barely squeeze through while others are much larger. It is believed the tunnels may have been used as shelter against predators and may have also acted as a "highway" of sorts for people to travel from one place to another.

"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."

I find it comical that this 'network; of Tunnels seems to be not inter-connected, and most of them are relatively short. I had to giggle at the fact that some of the passages are TINY and a small person can JUST squeeze through these little holes in order to move along the passages. When according to ancient accounts from the Native Americans to the Indian Vedas, there are VAST tunnel networks/cities, created in antediluvian ages past. http://paranormal.about.com/od/hollowearth/a/aa082905.htm When I lived at the top of the South Island of New Zealand (Ngatimoti), there was a caving guide, Lanc...

Its true there are lots of caves and tunnels on/in this planet. Not just in Europe but in Asia, the Americas, Africa and other continents beginning with the letter A. Many are millions of years old. Theyve been made by this stuff called W-a-t-e-r...the process is pretty slow, but it can get a lot done over millions and millions of years. Take this info to a website for Potholers and the like and they'll go "Well duh, we know!" . To say they were some kind of prehistoric highway and everyone (except potholers and other outward bounds sort of chaps) forgot about them for a million years is not j... [More]

~snip~ Btw what predators were our ancesters supposed to be hiding from? There practically nothing so dangerous as to require this kind of effort, any large land mammal that could possibly be a threat of any sort were referred to as "flint arrow sponge"," oh look, here comes dinner" and "OOh a new winter coat!" other human beings .... All major fortifications of great cities began from the vary basic keeping out 'the others' fences or trenches.

Wrong. They thought: "Foooood" or "Heeeaaat"

but you do not talk/understand English very well; I'm really truelly sorry to say that. There is no shame in that, I love to learn "Slovio", the Slavic equivalent of Esperanto: http://www.slovio.com/ I speaks English very well I just have Russian accent. Or even Japanese.

Carbon dating sets at least some of the tunnels in the middle ages. linkity There goes my theory on where the Tuatha De Danaan went, but it is interesting to note that many experts do consider them man made. .

They travelled from lower Germany (the area - lowlands or "Lochlann" - between the Rhine and the Elbe) to Ireland. Huh? Well, check the Doggerland thread. (I now feel like Al Bundy trying to sell shoes, LOL. Sorry Spiff).

There are way more tunnels that we dont know aboiut because we aren't meant to know about them so says the powers that be! There is a hollow earth that many religions speak of around the world and I'm sure that most govt's know about these passage ways but are keeping them classified...

I really hope this is a hoax. We have enough trouble stopping all the illegals running through the channel tunnel at the moment. This turns out to be true the country will sink into the ocean with the weight of them all arriving in Scotland demanding a free house and benefits.
