The Bosnian Pyramid project is the most active and controversial archaeological site in the world.

The 2020 excavation season will mark the 15th year anniversary of when Dr. Sam first made his announcement of his incredible pyramid discovery in 2005.

Since that time thousands of volunteers from around the world have come to donate their time, energy and efforts in uncovering our shared ancient hidden history. This archaeological project is the only one of its kind that allows both professional and non-professionals alike to contribute to the archaeological, scientific and spiritual researches taking place within the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids. Volunteering begins in June 2020 and continues through the summer until late October.

Time and Date

Volunteers can come and work for a day, a week, a month or even an entire summer.

Exchange – free transparency

Volunteering is free of charge and though accommodation is not provided, food on working days is. Private accommodation can be found online or locally and is very reasonable no matter the budget you have.

This is an incredible opportunity for anyone interested in archaeology, history, science, metaphysics, spirituality and earth mysteries.

  1. You can also go privately and join the group when they do volunteering at the sites. Then you get free meals and very nice experiences! And you can live and see the other sites much cheaper. Bosnia has very nice people, food and prehistoric sites. So however you choose to go there it will be super ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. We just ask that all volunteers arrive on-site (Usually Ravne Tunnels or Sunca Pyramid), ready to for work to begin at 0900 on weekdays. If they arrive late we cannot count them to be included in the lunch. It is freshly prepared home made food with local ingredients and due to logistics we need to give the cook volunteer numbers in the AM. Thanks

    2. hello,
      from Switzerland,geneva,I went on May this year to visit Ravne tunnel and climb on top of the Sun pyramid! fascinating experiences and convinced about the origin,unknow,of the whole pxramids…
      Would be open and interested to join 2 weeks for volunteers cleaning in July from 14-27. !
      due to budget restriction,will be forced to find the best cheaper place in Visoko to be settled. the week end i will maybe go in Sarajevo where i have friends owning small pension ” Lion”.
      Also due to my height,194, will be most interested to be outside as inside but of course where I will be use! Please let me know if possible + living details.I will arrive by bus from Sarajevo the 13 to be ready at time to start my work!
      I am member of the comittee of the Solidarity Bosnie association in Geneva and will participate at the Marche de la Paix from 8-11 july from Nezluc-Potocari with 5-8000 walkers from all origins…
      I used to be in charge of UNHCR in Mostar from september 1992 until 1993 and near Bihac pocket,Krajina,Topusko,from 1993-1994.

  2. I have truly had the time of my life volunteering in the excavation of the Bosnian pyramids. It is so exciting to be a part of uncovering the mysteries of our past. It gave me a new perspective on history and even on our modern society. I really enjoyed spending time with Rich Hoyle and the volunteers from all over the world. I will be back this summer, and I can’t wait!

  3. It was a great experience to volunteer at the Bosnian Pyramids in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. I made so many friendships and learned so much. I recommend everyone to join the volunteering – you will not be disappointed!

  4. I’m from The Netherlands and was in several volunteer-groups. It was always a wonderfull experience. Ofcourse there is work to do. But you never have to do more than you wish or can do and also there is the opportunity to attend well organised fieldtrips. Everything is very much about connecting to like-minded people (of all ages!) and having fun and quality time together. In 2 days it feels like family. Most spoken language in the group is english (and german) and it is fun that almost everybody has a funny accent and is searching for the right words.
    Doing this volunteerswork makes me feel to be part of something bigger: Finding out more about the mysteries of the piramids and the re-writing of our history.

  5. Mike Wood 6th Volunteer Group
    August-September 2018
    Working in the new tunnels at C3
    and being part of the team that
    actually broke through into the
    newly discovered chambers
    was the most amazing experience!
    The buzz of excitement from all
    the team was incredible and
    something that will stay with
    me for the rest of my life.
    I have visited twice since (out of season)
    and canโ€™t wait for my next volunteering
    Please feel free to take a look at the pictures
    of my experience on my photography website
    and also click on the Bosnia2 tab.

  6. I am from France and I participated in a volunteer group in july 2018. I have great memories of this stay, on all grounds.
    First of all, it was a highly positive human experience along with people coming from all over the world, each having his own personnality and path of life. Some of them have become my friends and I canโ€™t wait to see them again.
    Secondly, this stay was an opportunity to check out by myself all the stories I had seen over the internet. Now, I know for sure that the Bosnian Pyramid research is making history. The ongoing discoveries will have great impact on future generations. What Iโ€™ve personnally witnessed over there is just mindblowing.
    Last but not least, it was also an amazing spiritual experience, feeling connected to others, staff and volunteers, and to some very special places.
    Therefore, I highly recommend to join the volunteer program and experience those outstanding and unique moments. There are definitely great rewards for curiosity and open mind.

  7. It was the best experience I ever had! I will come another week this summer with my little brothers to find the truth ๐Ÿ™‚

    Special thanks to all the volunteers, Marie Sophie and Rich!


  8. will be interested to join a team from 2 weeks from 15-27 arriving Kisovo on 14! i have visited the site in May this year..fascinating! Due my height,194 cm, will be more interested to work outside as inside tunnels!

  9. Is it also possible to start to help out in the middle of a workweek? I expect to arrive at the 18th of June and can start on the 19th.


  10. Hi , I watched many of the documentaries and I am very interested in participating in working/ volunteering in 2020. I haven’t found any information about the dates or anything. Can anyone tell me where I could find this information or with whom I could get in contact to plan my trip?

    Thanks so much in advance.
