Ancient Civilizations And Pyramids On Antarctica, Theories Say It’s Possible

We all know that Antarctica was in the distant past, a very different place. With its 14.0 million square kilometers, Antarctica is the fifth largest continent on our planet, and in other words, is twice the size of Australia.

What we have to understand is that around 170 million years ago, Antarctica was part of the supercontinent called Gondwana. Around 25 million years ago, Antarctica as we know it, gradually broke apart from Gondwana.

According to research, Antarctica was not always cold, dry, and covered in ice sheets. Au contraire, during its long history, Antarctica was located farther north and experienced a tropical or temperate climate, meaning that it was covered in forests, and inhabited by various ancient life forms. What does this mean? Well… given the little we know about the life on our planet in the distant past, it is likely that people might have lived on this now, icy continent and developed as a society just like people did in Africa, Europe and Asia.

What if… there really are Pyramids on Antarctica?

According to, the Northern Hemisphere Arctic lands are well-known for their warm-climate fossil plants and animals from the Mesozoic and early Cenozoic of the uniformitarian geological column.

“I still find the idea that Antarctica was once forested absolutely mind-boggling”,

“We take it for granted that Antarctica has always been a frozen wilderness, but the ice caps only appeared relatively recently in geological history,” told Jane Francis of the University of Leeds to the BBC.

People have speculated for a long time that Antarctica might have had “civilized” people calling it home, and if it did, in the distant past, the ancient inhabitants of Antarctica must have left behind structures; such as temples or even pyramids.

Today, Antarctica is composed of around ninety-eight percent ice which is over a kilometer thick. So imagine, if in the distant past, ancient people inhabited Antarctica when it was covered with vegetation and forests, all of their “heritage” is now buried under a thick layer of ice. Even though it is uninhabitable today and only scientists venture out to Antarctica, in the distant past it might have been the perfect place for an ancient civilization to develop.

Officially, it was in 1820 when a Russian expedition sighted a continental Ice shelf and that Antarctica was “discovered.”


But myths and speculation about Terra Australis date back to the antiquity. Around 350 B.C. Aristotle wrote in his book, meteorology, about the Antarctic region. Marinus of Tyre, a Greek geographer, cartographer and mathematician used the name in a world map of the second century A.D.

People believed in the distant past that a landmass called Terra Australis existed; a giant continent located in the southern parts of the planet which was there to provide a “balance” for the northern lands of Europe, Asia and North Africa. This idea existed since the times of Ptolemy, first century A.D.

“Go back 100 million years ago and Antarctica was covered in lush rainforests similar to those that exist in New Zealand today,” said Dr Vanessa Bowman who works with Francis at the University of Leeds.


Expeditions to Antarctica are extremely difficult and costly. Without the proper equipment, a human beings wouldn’t last very long on this icy continent. This makes it very difficult to search for proof of ancient structures in the southern most continent on our planet.


According to several websites ( voice of Russia and Science Ray), a group of European and American scientists came across pyramidal structures on Antarctica. According to an article at, the team composed of 8 explorers found evidence of at least three man-made pyramids that were “peaking” through the melting ice on Antarctica. The author stated: “Can it be possible that Antarctica was once warm enough in the recent past to actually have had an ancient civilization living there? And even more perplexing is the question of if an advanced culture did develop there, are there any structures still remaining that are buried underneath the ice?

But what are these mysterious formations? Geologists who have taken the time to look at the images and data suggest that these “pyramidal” shapes are just natural formations.

But what if there are Pyramids hidden under the thick layers of ice on Antarctica? A discovery of that caliber would surely be “shocking” and change the way we look at our history forever.

Since the discovery of the so-called Pyramids on Antarctica, numerous theories have been proposed by Ufologists, Ancient Alien theorists and researchers which try to explain what these structures are.

While there are those who believe that Antarctica is home to many secret “alien” bases, others believe that the formations that were tagged as pyramids are nothing more than natural geological formations.

But just wrap your mind around the idea that Antarctica was a green continent covered with vegetation in the past. We know very little about ancient history and we come across something new that points to the fact that people have been on Earth far longer than we thought. What if, an ancient civilization did in fact develop on Antarctica in the past? What if there are structures hidden beneath the thick layers of ice? What if an ancient civilizations that is unknown to us did in fact, developed on the continent we call today Antarctica, and built a thriving civilization that inhabited the continent up until weather condition drastically changed.

While these structures that are said to be man-made structures might turn out to be nothing but interesting geological formations, it is very likely that at some point, researchers will come across actual evidence of ancient man-made structures on the icy continent. Of course for that to happen, a lot of ice would need to melt, and if ALL of Antarctica’s ice were to melt, sea levels would rise about 60 m which would be catastrophic for some coastlines on our planet.

Interestingly, according to researchers,  the Antarctic Peninsula has warmed by an alarming 2.8 degrees Celsius, which is faster than any other part of the world. This means that if this warming were to continue unabated, it is very likely that in the future we could see a “tropical” Antarctica reappear.

  1. I believe that human life : preflood was part of Pangea the super continent. Then the flood came and the breaking apart all the continents which eventually did cause Antartica to freeze. Be sure to get there before the Smithsonian though or well never see it. They’ll throw some neanderthall bones around and say ya but we were just caveman garbage. I beleive if theres any more evidence that shows the existance of Giants it may be there as well.

      1. No but you are. seriously you gate keepers need to kind of back off.
        Truth is coming out in droves and there’s nothing you people can do to stop it. I’ve also done some of my own research of the Smithsonian, and believe me they are covering up some of the most prolific evidence out there about Genesis Giants.

        1. You are now known as the double down ass hat. I’m bet your research consists of You Tube.

          It’s a beautiful day here in Maine – sunny, 78^ with a light breeze. If you tried to tell me that then I’d have to check. That’s how little myself and other rational people believe your idiocy.

          1. And yet what I say keeps coming true more and more evidence keeps coming forth. Hmm Go figure ass hat Idiot.

      2. Cedrick there’s no doubt it’s you who is dillusional. There’s so much out there that has been covered up by the Smithsonian and main stream science to protect our precious “religion” it should be criminal. I suppose it’s dillusional to believe there’s ancient artifacts in Antarctica but it’s not dillusional to think some magic guy in the sky made the whole world and if you just believe in him and behave yourself then someday when you die you’ll go join him in the magic place right ?

        1. Nah, both scenarios are delusional and based on no evidence at this point.

        2. When you can spell delusional we may, repeat may, take you seriously. Right now you’re seen as a dumb ass.

          You seem to be very confused. Neither the Smithsonian nor science is hiding anything to cover up for any religion. That’s a really stupid notion.

      3. A minor correction – delusional and stupid. The article actually contradicts itself.

  2. For all we know it could be that Antarctica could be the lost Atlantis that Plato talked about. After all it has moved 7 degrees in the last 500 years so who knows,It could be that it was inhabited by humans or aliens. After all Ad.Byrd flew across the continent and did say he saw a gigantic hole in the ice and flew in and his plane was taken over by a particle beam that made the plane land and he did say that he indeed did talk with the aliens and was told that humans are destroying the earth and that they were not happy about it and that if we did not change our ways we will destroy the planet and they will not let that happen. Also in 1946 we sent 5000 soldiers on navy ships to see if the Germans had a base there and when they got there they were met by 3 flying saucers that shot up out of the water and shot beams at our ships and troops and cut ships in half and killed many soldiers and it was said that they moved so fast and erratic that they could not even fire on them fast enough and the American forces limped back defeated and this is fact that you do not hear about! So I do not rule out anything now in my old age because you never know!!
