Bosnian (non)Pyramids update Egyptologist backs Bosnian excavation
An Egyptologist who investigated two hills in central Bosnia believed by some to be ancient pyramids on Wednesday recommended that archaeological digs be carried out there.

After investigating the two hills for a week, Mohammed Ibrahim Ali, a professor of Egyptology in Cairo, said nobody should be jumping to conclusions — but having in mind everything he had seen in Visoko, his recommendations would be that "it is worth digging here."

"You have to be patient. This might take decades," he said.

Eh. A bunch of people excavating isn't much of a problem unless they're gouging out actual archaeological stuff in their zeal to find something pyramidy.

OTOH, it's not like the Egyptians generally ask Mayanists who ought to be excavating around on the Giza plateau. . . .
