Secret Silbury - England's own Pyramid

Jim Leary, the English Heritage archaeologist responsible for the survey on Silbury Hill in 2007/8 gave the lecture Silbury Hill: the Archaeology of a Monumental Mound at the Wiltshire Heritage Museum, Devizes on Saturday the 23rd January 2010.  

Jim has been working since the survey in 2007/8 on the analysis of the data.  So, were the questions about this enigmatic monument about to be answered – How was it built? When was it built? How long did it take to build? 

The lecture started with a swipe at the fringe archaeologists, pagan, new age and alien visitor theories, which had become established due to the failure of archaeologists to provide credible interpretations for Silbury Hill.  So was this about to change? Could the eagerly awaited findings based on scientific analysis of the evidence removed in 2007 restore credibility in the archaeological community?

The answer soon became evident.  The lecture focussed on rehashed previously presented material about the early and recent history of Silbury Hill. This was followed by a number of non scientific interpretations as to how and why the hill was built.  For example, “our early Stone Age ancestors probably built Silbury Hill to replicate their geology and geography - to show they understood the landscape they lived in” and “the mysterious clusters of sarsen stones found at the summit of Silbury Hill were probably part of some religious ‘Topping Out’ ceremony”.

At last some scientific evidence.  According to Jim, the core of organic material, including ants and insects, found inside the hill has accurately dated the hill to 4400 years.  Incidentally this is exactly the same date as previously provided by Atkinson in 1970 from the antler found about a foot inside Silbury Hill.  “With water containing pollutants – from volcanic ash to animals grazing on the hill over the thousands of years – seeping through the hill would this not affect the accuracy of the dating of these exposed insects”, I enquired?  Seemingly not as radio carbon dating is now an absolute technique and the dates are indisputable. 

What about the analysis of the intriguing dark brown butter-texture material which forms a fairly uniform approximately 5mm thick stone free layer between the foundation and the base of the hill?  This material is being studied by English Heritage geo-archaeologists and the results will be available in a full report in 2011.  Jim suggested this layer is likely to have been produced by worms?

Flint flakes found in pits at the centre of the hill were mentioned but not the date of 10,000 years!

Jim confirmed that in the 1968-70 excavation, Professor Atkinson, with the help of the BBC, had vandalised the part of the tunnel they had re-examined in 2007 before backfilling.  If this was a crime scene surely any evidence would be inadmissibly!   So, can we trust these archaeologist findings to accurately date Silbury Hill?    Hopefully future unbiased archaeologists will have the opportunity to investigate the unexplored parts of Silbury Hill.

To find out more, a full report of Jim’s work is contained in his excellent book The Story of Silbury Hill.  The book follows the well trodden traditional view to the age etc., of Silbury Hill, but his book also provides many interesting facts, contradictions and insights into my alternative ideas.  A foreword from David Attenborough helps to provide credibility to this beautifully illustrated book. 

Interestingly, his book corroborates the facts found in my Leaflet, with one small exception, first published in 2009 - but of course the interpretations differ!

The small exception is where I mistook a ditch for a chamber, but nevertheless chambers do exist inside Silbury Hill as Jim pointed out on page 47 of his book as follows:-

“Mrs L F Brooks of 22 Stratton Road, Pewsey, was quoted in the Marlborough Times in August 1962 as describing how during the First World War she used to live very near the hill and was told by her parents that there were caverns inside. When the entrance caved in, in 1915, a tiny passage led first of all downwards and then altered course and proceeded upwards. Eventually it forked, with one way leading to a dead end and the other to a cavern ‘about as big as a room’. Beyond this there was another cavern similar to the first: We took candles in with us and used to write our names on the ceiling with the candle smoke’. The whole system must have gone about three parts through the hill, ‘she said. ‘And it was very frightening ... my brother would blow out the candle and I would be terrified."  

Book also confirms that Archaeology is fraught with speculation – but that’s the way it is!! 

Prior to and since standing at the centre of Silbury Hill in October 2007, I have been involved with scientists and researchers around the world studying mounds similar to Silbury Hill - from the newest in Bosnia to the most famous in Egypt.

The photograph shows a ‘naked’ Silbury Hill pyramid mound type structure found only a few meters away from the Bent Pyramid at Dashur, Egypt.


This alternative possibility involves some very basic knowledge of physics.  Ions occur when an atom either gains an electron (anion) or looses an electron (cation).  Ions exist naturally due to the ongoing atomic reactions with energy sources such as heat, light and sound energy.  An ionic current flows when the negatively charged anions are attracted towards the positively charged (opposites attract) Sun via the ionosphere and the positively charged cations are attracted from the Sun to the negatively charged Earth.  This flow of ionic current is a natural occurring phenomenon.

If a pyramid shape is placed on the ground thus intersecting this flow of ionic current, its effect is to concentrate the flow of energy at the tip of the pyramid compared to the base, i.e. the pyramid is able to generate and store free energy!

 All pyramids have been found to contain some crystalline/quartz stone such as sarsen, granite or salt.  These materials act as a transducer.  A transducer is a power transforming device which can convert one form of energy into another.   A pyramid depending on its size, angle, construction and materials used can generate huge amounts of electrical energy which can be converted into large magnetic fields, sound (communication signals), Ion Generator/Bionizer (as found in modern air purifiers/conditioners),  heat and earth (ley line) energy.  Water nearby, which is common to all pyramids, provides a constant source of negative anions.

Did our ancestors in pre-history understand the properties of pyramids and the science of our planet?  Their amazing mathematical and astrological knowledge and the fact that they built pyramids on every continent on Earth seems to suggest they did?

Is this another crackpot idea?  Russian scientists don’t think so.  They are building pyramids to purify the surrounding atmosphere and help tackle the effects of greenhouse gasses.

Was Silbury Hill originally built as a pyramid?  If it was this would make it one of the most fascinating ancient monuments on Earth!
