      SECRETS OF THE BLACK
      PYRAMIDS

      Spain's Canary Islands are back in the news.
      Six step pyramids, made of black volcanic stones,
      were discovered late last year near Guimar, a town
      on the eastern shore of Tenerife Island, about
      40 kilometers (24 miles) south of Santa Cruz de
      Tenerife.
      According to the London Times, "Spain's
      Canary Islands off the northwest coast of Africa
      hardly seem a place for pyramids, but there seem
      to be six of them on Tenerife."
      "The inhabitants have generally ignored these
      dilapidated piles of black volcanic stones. However,
      one perceptive native described them to Thor
      Heyerdahl of Kon Tiki fame and a leading
      proponent of cultural diffusion across all oceans."
      "Quick to respond, Heyerdahl perceived amid
      the debris six stepped pyramids of black stone.
      He persuaded a Norwegian businessman to buy
      the site, clean up the debris of centuries and
      found a museum."
      "One of the 'black' pyramids has now been
      restored, but some experts are still unconvinced.
      However, recent excavations under one pyramid
      have yielded artifacts identified with" the Guanches,
      "the pre-Spanish inhabitants of Tenerife."
      "Meanwhile, Heyerdahl has been checking out
      a rumored pyramid on Sicily." (See Science
      Frontiers #122, March-April 1999 issue by William
      S. Corliss, page 1 See also the Times of London
      for December 19, 1998, "Riddle of the Black
      Pyramids" by Robin Mead.)
