There are still multiple places remaining on Earth, where it is impossible to cover the existence of ancient and highly-developed civilizations
Numerous stories tell us about some secret forces that, without announcing their existence, are collecting pieces of all the findings, which indicate the presence of highly-developed civilizations in the prehistoric times. There is a large number of those encounters, most notably, the sarcophagus of the blond beauty (Devonian period), human skeletons from Carboniferous and Palaeogenic sediments, iron hammer, found in the calcareous nodules (Cretaceous period) and many-many others. According to the data, circulating around the Web and during the multiple non-academic meetings and forums, many such discoveries are being hidden in the top-secret repositories of the Smithsonian Institution (Washington, DC), in Vatican, somewhere in China…
One of such places is the Phrygian valley in Central Turkey
One of these places is the distribution area of vehicle tracks in the Neogenic (Miocene) sediments in the Phrygian valley in Central Turkey (and here). Purely accidently did we find them in large numbers, while studying the megalithic and underground constructions of Phrygian valley in May, 2014.
We were pleasantly surprised by the large number and the quality of the roads, which connect the settlements of the Phrygian valley. Asphalted, almost always “empty”, with magnificent sceneries along the way, they lure the researchers deep into its territory. Fortunately for us, asphalted roads are not laid to all the mapped historic landmarks – otherwise we would have never seen the vehicle tracks of the Neogene period.
Fields of petrified stone tracks on the ancient planation surface (peneplain)
Some good earth roads lead up to the several mapped archeological objects of the Phrygian valley, which you can use by a regular car. Once following such a road and moving further inland to study the rock cities, buttes and bas-reliefs of Aslankai near the city Dodger, we decided to keep going until we reach the nearest village, where the asphalted road begins. At first everything looked “smooth and fine”. But with every hundred meters the road became worse and worse, its ruts – deeper and deeper. Gradually the road divided into two, some new ruts appeared along the way. They were so deep that it was impossible to move through on a passenger car (Fiat Linea). Looking for the ways to bypass the obstacles, we stepped out of the car and gaped at what was surrounding us. The road ruts, that we witnessed, in reality represented the petrified tires’ tracks left on the common here whitish (light-beige) tuffaceous rocks.
In some of my articles I will call the paired parallel tire ruts as “roads”, even though that is not correct. Almost everywhere we have seen a single set of vehicle tracks, and only occasionally the same ruts were used two or more times.
Tracks were numerous. They continued parallel to each other, went semicircular (like a fan), crossed and doubled. All the ruts were rather deep (15-35 cm), clear, with traces of tires without treads and seldom of landing axis and had everywhere the same width between the wheels, typical of modern cars (we partially followed one such “road”, that matches the modern one, until its ruts became too deep). All this did not leave any doubts regarding the fact, that these roads were used by cars or all-terrain vehicles, most likely six-wheeled, when the ground was in a soft and wet condition.
The measurements of the vehicle tracks
The distance from the left end of the rut to the right is about 150 – 160 centimeters, depending on wear and rotation angle.
How long ago did the vehicles cruise around the Phrygian valley?
How long did that happen? How many years ago were there cars or all-terrain vehicles in the Phrygian valley?
The age of the petrified vehicle tracks – middle Miocene (14 – 12 mln. Years)
After returning to Moscow and studying the made during the expedition photographs, I also saw the fragments of similar petrified vehicle tracks or ancient auto roads in other parts of Phrygian valley, including the “city” of Midas near the village Yazilikaya. I immediately tried to define their age. That was not an easy task to complete. Judging by the number of presented on the internet materials in English (no such information available in Russian), the geology of the Phrygian valley is studied extremely poorly. I managed to get in the Mineral Research & Exploration General Directorate of Turkey just one geological map of this territory with the scale 1:500000, made in 2002 by Nehati Turhan. I did not encounter any other geological maps or links to them with a higher scale (1:250000, 1:100000). The situation with publications was not significantly better. I came across just several articles and reports regarding the archeology of the Phrygian valley, where there were some chapters on geology, and a magnificent work by by C. Akal with co-authors about the examination of volcanogenic formations near the Afyon.
A wide development of petrified vehicle tracks in Central Turkey
According to the schemes (2010) presented by Y. Ozarslan, similar (to the examined) stone roads are widely spread on all the territory of the Phrygian valley from the city Eskisehir up to the city Afyon. This is also supported by the photographs of this area (from Google Earth).
The connection between the petrified vehicle tracks and the megalithic and underground constructions. Wars and Catastrophes of the Neogenic period.
The research, carried out by Y. Ozarlslan, concerning the confinedness of megalithic and underground constructions, including the built “elvish cities” on rock- and mountain tops, to the ancient “roads”, raises curiousity. He did not see a clear interdependency in their location, however, despite that assumption, he did suggest that there might had been connections between them in the past. Some “elvish cities” (Deliktash Kale and others) are located within 500 meters of the “roads”.
The most dreadful and devastating catastrophes happened at the boundaries between the early and the middle Miocene (15,9 million years ago) and between the Miocene and Pliocene (5,3 million years ago). At that time on Earth there were extremely powerful tectonic shifts with earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods, the surface of the planet was covered with impenetrable darkness (especially long in the early Miocene). Some weaker, but similar in its consequences catastrophes were taking place in all other culminating periods of the Neogene. It is no wonder that the suggestion, supported by ancient tales of all the folks, that the survived during all these conflicts people were hiding from the raging fires and massive floods on Earth underground. This explains a large number of underground settlements in the Phrygian valley and Cappadocia and the wide presence of coatings and soot on the walls and ceilings of these underground constructions and on the floor – calcigerous sediments with oscillation ripples and the absence of any rock dumps in the surrounding area (look through my reports on the examinations of underground constructions in Israel and Turkey). Moreover, according to our own researches and the data by Y. Orzaslan, most of the megalithic and underground settlements in Phrygia (roughly 80% according to Y. Orzaslan) are located in the highest parts of relief – between the absolute marks of 1100 and 1367 m), what can be explained by the increased sea level after one or more floods. Quite possible, that the discovered “roads” have their ruts so deep just because the scouts of the survived after the catastrophe people, while looking for the new settlements or disentombing the houses of those survivals, hiding underground, were furrowing the wet ground on their cars (all-terrain vehicles?) and were getting stuck in it. Likely that is why we did not find any human footprints there. It was too dangerous to walk on the non-dried soil.
In conclusion. The stone “roads” of Phrygian valley can not be of ancient Phrygian, ancient Roman, or ancient Greek origin. They exist since Neogene
A fascinating story, which does not play around the perception of the world history we got used to in schools and universities, does it? Nevertheless, everything described here is the truth. You can travel to the Phrygian valley and study these petrified vehicle tracks yourself or at least look at them through Google Earth. In this case, there is a high probability that the forces, that are keep trying to hide our true heritage, will not be able to interfere with that – the ancient “roads” encompass too large of a territory, just as the Neogenic underground-terrestrial megalithic complex. As a matter of fact, the Phrygian settlements (II – I millennium B.C.) pose no more than “miserable patches” on it, by far not the first and not the last, and look as a work of savage artisans in comparison to the filigree work of the ancient architects, possessing unknown to us technologies of stone carving, that built the megalithic and underground constructions, and, most probably, cruised around the entire Phrygian valley on their cars.
After finishing the article and providing sufficient evidence regarding the existence of highly-developed civilization in the Neogenic period in it, at the same time I am sure that it will not appear on the mainstream media or academic publications. Those forces that still define what is and is not allowed to know, will not let it happen. That is why I would like to address to all the independent publishers that are interested in telling people the truth, to reprint and announce this article on their resources. Especially due to the fact that similar stone “roads” in the Miocenic and Pliocenic sediments are widely developed on Malta. They are also present in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Bulgaria, Azerbaijan, Abkhazia, Armenia, Crimea, Mexico, Brasil, USA, and other contries.
