The ancient Etruria pyramids were found in Italy. How they have appeared is still a mystery to everyone. The first pyramids were found accidentally under the wine cellar in Orvieto city. The underground halls have pyramided shape. They were made from the huge parts of calcareous sinter. For a long time, these pyramids were unknown because of their location.
The upper part of the pyramids was used by locals as a wine cellar. Once in the corridor of such cellar was found some parts of the going down the ladder. There is no doubt that these pyramids were built by Etruria. But we don’t know about the original use of them.
There were also found a number of outstanding artefacts. Among them were the fragments of the pottery of the 5-6 century BC. The artefacts are older than 3 000 years. The researching works haven’t been stopping until today. Even now the researchers didn’t get to the lowest part of the pyramids. Every new earth layer gives some information about the people’s life. Nowadays the searchers have discovered 3 meters of the stone. The researchers claim that these pyramids could be covered with a great layer of lava when the volcano was active. Some specialists say that at the ground of the pyramids might be tombs. Next - Fulachtai Fia
