The age of the fossilized traces of ancient “Rovers” in Turkey and Spain, geologists estimate at 12 million years. Fossilized tracks that were found in various places, including in some parts of Turkey and Spain, remained heavy all-terrain vehicles about 12-14 million years ago – so says Alexander Koltypin, a geologist and Director of the Research center of natural Sciences, Moscow International independent ecological and political University.
This statement raises considerable debate, as most archaeologists believe that human civilization exists on our planet only a few thousand, not millions of years. To agree with the theory of the scientist is to recognize that even before we existed on Earth prehistoric civilization that may have been sufficiently developed to have such a vehicle.
Wheel tracks cross faults formed in the middle and at the end of the Miocene period (about 12-14 million years ago). After determining the age of faults, Koltypin, and suggested that the heavy transport an unknown civilization traveled these roads millions of years ago.
At that time the ground was wet and soft as clay. Large vehicles grosly in the mud, leaving deep ruts. Eventually, when the earth was dry, it was potholes of different depths. Transport continued to ride the beaten paths already on dry land, according to the Koltypin, and no burden so deeply.
The vehicles were the same length as modern cars, but the tires were about 23 cm in width.
According to the scientist, very few works on the Geology and archaeology contain information about these fossilized traces of machinery. But even in these few references, as a rule, the explanation is that the footprints were left by carts pulled by donkeys or camels.
“I will never agree with these explanations,” the scientist wrote on his page on the Internet. “Personally, I will always remember … that in the history of our planet there were other civilizations that vanished long before the appearance of modern man.”
The Koltypin claims that the traces could be left by light trucks or cars, because such deep furrows could do only heavy vehicles.
He spent a lot of research into different places where they found these traces, a well-studied published research on the local Geology. He suggested that the road network stretches along a significant part of the Mediterranean and beyond over 12 million years ago.
These well-trodden paths used by the people who built those underground cities, the remains of which we now can find, for example, in the area of Cappadocia in Turkey. Alexander has put forward the theory that these cities are also much more ancient than it is considered in official archaeology.
The fossilized ruts of the wheels were found in Malta, Italy, Kazakhstan, France and even in North America, writes Koltypin.
Most of them in the Kutahya province, Turkey, in the historical area of Cappadocia. There are fossilized traces of the wheels stretch for miles.
Most archaeologists attribute many of these traces of different civilizations that lived in different time periods. But, Koltypin considers that it is not correct to attribute the same roads, potholes and underground constructions of different epochs and cultures.
Instead, he attributed them to a single, widespread civilization, inhabited the Earth in a long time. Countless natural phenomena such as tsunamis, volcanoes, floods and faults, destroyed most of the remnants of the highly developed prehistoric civilization, he says.
Taking into account the impact of these natural phenomena on a geological formation, Koltypin and were able to determine that these potholes and the roads appeared, probably even before any of these catastrophic events.
Heavy mineral deposits covering the ruts and erosion also testify to the antiquity, the scientists said.
Petrification can happen within a few hundred years or even several months, so just the fact that ruts from wheels made of stone, not yet have proof that they are very old. But, Koltypin claims that other geological evidence indicate that they appeared in the Miocene period millions of years ago.
Located next to the underground city, the irrigation system, wells and much more, are also showing signs that they are millions of years old, he says. But he adds: “Without careful research with the participation of many archaeologists, geologists and specialists in folklore, it is impossible yet to answer the question, what was this civilization.”
