The Mysterious Ancient Etruscan Underground Pyramids Discovered in Italy

Dubbing the underground pyramids ” cavitá” (Italian for ‘hole’ or ‘hollow’), archaeologists have thus far managed to reach about fifteen meters (49 feet) down. Excavations on the cavitá and related sites have produced ceramic materials, large basins, Attic red figure pottery, and more.

Dubbing the underground pyramids ” cavitá” (Italian for ‘hole’ or ‘hollow’), archaeologists have thus far managed to reach about fifteen meters (49 feet) down. Much of the site had been intentionally back-filled ages ago for reasons unknown.

Clearing the fill material has revealed many artifacts. According to popular Archaeology, David B. George and colleagues have described the finds; “We know that the site was sealed toward the end of the 5th century BCE. IT appears to have been a single event. Of great significance is the number of Etruscan language inscriptions that we have recovered – over a hundred and fifty.

We are also finding an interesting array of architectural/decorative terra cotta.” Excavations on the cavitá and related sites have produced ceramic materials, large basins, Attic red figure pottery, and more. In all, Claudio Bizzarri believes at least five similar pyramids exist beneath the city. The mystery of the Etruscan pyramids continues to perplex researchers, with guesses as to their purpose including religious structures, or tombs.

Bizzarri told discovery News, “Most likely, the answer waits at the bottom. The problem is we don’t really know how much we have to dig to get down there.” For more information on the Orvieto sites and the ongoing excavation, visit Comments For some reason, humans thousands of years ago spent untold thousands of hours building massive underground shelters.

The Etruscans didn’t merge with the Romans, but rather they disappeared, while the Roman village rose to prominence around the same time. I believe the Etruscans suffered a massive strike from the sky, probably around seven hundred or seven hundred and one BCE, perhaps in the same celestial catastrophe that destroyed Sennacherib’s army outside Jerusalem in seven hundred and one or so. Both the Bible and cuneiform records record the same destruction of the troops from the sky.

The early Romans worshiped Mars and their two highest religious days celebrated Mars, the Armilustrium, on October 24, and the Tubulustrium, on March twenty or 21, like Passover. They had many other Mars worship days. Many cultures around the world worshiped Mars before about seven hundred BCE, or the Axial Age. The Sumerians identified both Mars and Mercury, two tiny dots invisible to the naked eye today. The Greeks worshiped Mars. Archaeologists have found many Mars amulets in ancient Israel.
