A small bit of success goes a long way for Bosnian Pyramid volunteers who, against all odds, removed an immense block from it's age long living space in late July of 2012. Along the northern face there is an excavation site known to the archaeologists and volunteers as Sonda 12b.
This is the same site where many previous attempts had failed. The rock is extremely hard and has even dismissed the formidable tries of pneumatic tools and other systems in the past.
The team in this photo, dubbed "The Dream Team", consists of volunteers Sam Matthews (USA), Fauzi Hyena (Italy), Mike Tate (USA), Michael Dougher (USA), Ivo
Andreev (Bulgaria), and Pivo "Rob" Polakovic (Norway). German geophysicists from LGA Bautechnic Institute have screened this area indicating that there are hallow spaces just below the space you see here in this photo, at approximately 5 meters in depth. Entering the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, which has been awarded the largest pyramid in the world, has never been closer thanks to this team of volunteers and all the volunteers that came before them. It just goes to show what a little unity and innovative thinking can achieve.
The hunt continues...
