M̳y̳s̳t̳e̳r̳i̳o̳u̳s̳ tunnels have been discovered in Scotland that extend as far as Turkey, however, researchers still don\’t know why or how they were created. What makes them even more mysterious is how absolutely amazing they are and how meticulously created.
These thousands of Stone Age underground tunnels have scientists completely baffled. Dr. Henrich Kusch explained in his book titled \’S̳e̳c̳r̳e̳t̳s of the Underground Door to an Ancient World\’ that tunnels were dug under literally hundreds of Neolithic settlements across Europe. The mere fact that they survived for over 12,000 years proves that the original tunnels must have been even more massive.
He further believes that the tunnels would be used as highways, which would allow people to travel to faraway places across Europe.
He explains that “all over Europe, there were thousands of these tunnels – from northern Scotland to the Mediterranean. They are interspersed with nooks, in some places it is larger, and there are seats, or storage chambers and rooms. They\’re not all connected, but together it\’s a huge underground network.\’
“In Bavaria, Germany alone, we found 700 meters of these underground tunnel networks. In Styria, Austria, we found 350 meters,” he said.
“Across Europe, there were thousands of them – from northern Scotland to the Mediterranean.
“Most are not much bigger than large wormholes – just 70cm wide – just wide enough for a person to squirm around in, but nothing more.

While many described the tunnels as A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ roads, others explained that they were a method of protecting men from predators. In his book, Dr. Henrich explains that churches were often built at the entrances to tunnels because the Church was afraid of the pagan legacy the tunnels may have represented and wanted to stop its influence.
Other similar tunnels have been discovered on other continents. And even in the Americas, several A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ tunnels have been found. However, the big question is why were these passages built? Also, how were they built? While there are several legends about them, researchers have yet to discover solid answers.
