Why is the Chinese military guarding an ancient structure 8,000 years old

(ORDO NEWS) — In China, there is a mysterious building that can be the key to understanding the ancient history of the country.

More than 100 km from the ancient city of Xian, among the overgrown forests, dozens of pyramidal mounds rise, which have been shrouded in mystery for millennia. The West became aware of them when Fred Meyer Schroeder, an American trader, first reported “enigma” in 1912.

At the time, he was traveling in Shaanxi province with a guide, where he wrote a detailed description in his diary, noting that he saw one gigantic pyramid about 1,000 feet high and almost twice as high, surrounded by many smaller pyramids.

30 years later, US Air Force pilot James Gaussman, while flying over Asia, discovered a “pure white” structure that is twice the size of the Great Egyptian Pyramid.

He said: “The notable thing was the capstone, a huge piece of gem-like material that could be a crystal.

There was no way we could land, even though we wanted to. We were amazed at the immensity of this thing.”

Two years later, Colonel Maurice Sheehan, Far East director of Trans World Airline, reported the same thing.

In the early nineties, the German explorer Hartwig Hausdorff was looking for a massive pyramid, but he could not find it. He reportedly found “the Chinese military carefully patrolling the area.”

Today, Google Earth will show anyone with the correct coordinates evidence of not one, but about 40 pyramids, which are not easy to see. They are covered with trees and grass and many of them date back to 8000 years.

The region is essentially the Chinese version of Egypt’s Giza and the Valley of the Kings rolled into one, especially as there are rumors of a huge number of royalty lurking beneath the surface.

As early as the 17th century, a Roman Jesuit wrote about the pyramids, and in 1785, the French orientalist and sinologist Joseph de Guignes wrote “An Essay in which we prove that the Chinese are an Egyptian colony.”

Western archaeologists have so far rarely been allowed to explore these sites, and some have argued that the bushes were deliberately planted to keep the structures secret.

But experts suggest the burial mounds almost certainly contain lost emperors and artifacts that would dwarf Howard Carter’s 1922 discovery of Tutankhamen. In 1974, the world got a glimpse into China’s truly extraordinary history when two farmers were excavating near Xi’an and discovered the famous terracotta army of China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang.

There were legends that he was buried inside a real mini-city with palaces, carriages, treasures and everything else that he would need in the afterlife – and through luck or fate, these farmers hit the jackpot.

The site is so massive that researchers “will be digging for centuries,” archaeologist Christine Romy. But the emperor himself was never found.

The authorities have opened some sites to tourists, such as the Han Yang Ling Mausoleum, but no one is allowed to dig in them.

Xi Jinping’s government says there is no technology yet that could destroy the pyramids without damaging their contents.

Dr Romy previously noted, “What they are doing is really smart. Think of all the information we’ve lost based only on excavation methods from the 1930s.”

“We could have learned so much more [information], but the methods weren’t the same back then as they are now.”

“Even if we may think that we have excellent archaeological excavation methods [currently], who knows, maybe in a century, if we open this tomb [they could be even better].”

Honoring the traditions of Chinese culture may mean that they just want to leave their royal family alone. And that means they’ll have no choice but to watch them go back to Earth with their secrets until someone decides otherwise.

But due to the fact that this area is shrouded in mystery, some experts even doubt whether the White Pyramid exists. Experts are still arguing about both the location and the possibility of building such a monumental structure.
