Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon

The Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon is 190 meters high, which is higher than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt (147 meters). It was built using a combination of processed sandstone slabs and clay. The sandstone quarries are located in the vicinity, as well as the source of clay that was used as a binder, waterproofing material, and insulation. The pyramid design is terraced, which is a unique case in the world of pyramids. The upper layer of sandstone slabs is glued to the base. Organic material was found between the two layers on archaeological trench number 20 on the western side of the pyramid, which, according to radiocarbon analysis by the Institute of Physics at the Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice, Poland (2011), dates back to 10,350 BCE. The Institute of Materials at the University of Zenica confirmed that there is a difference in the strength and porosity of individual sandstone slabs in the same row, which confirms that the slabs were processed from sandstone at different depths in the quarries. Sandstone is a construction material that is still used today due to its good characteristics. Underneath the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon is a water accumulation that is connected to watercourses with the Pyramids of the Dragon and the Sun.
