Carbon 14 Confirmation: Bosnian "Pyramid of the Moon" was built over 10,000 years ago!

Utilizing C14 radiocarbon dating on an organic adhesive material found during excavations under The "Pyramid of the Moon" in Bosnia, confirm the structure was built over 10,000 years ago!

This once again pushes back the presumed origins of European civilization to thousands of years more than previously imagined.

Quote:Organic materials we found on one of the terraces of the pyramid of the moon. We found that the surface layers of adhesive on these blocks. When we unfolded the surface, we found the organic material, we did a radio-carbon dating in Poland (Gliwicame)) at the Silesian Institute of Technology and a few weeks ago we got a result. Age was 10.35 thousand years which means that the terrace was built about 10 thousand years ago and it completely changed our knowledge about Europe and age of advanced civilization - says Osmanagic

Interesting, but I'm certain the argument will be made that this doesn't actually confirm any dates other than the material itself that they tested is over 10,000 years old. Unfortunate that stone cant really be carbon dated.
