Ancient Civilizations

Quote for the day:

Look and you will find it - what is unsought will go undetected
Sophocles
Greek tragedian
(496-406 BC)


The field of Archeology has fascinated me since a young child. It is sad that money in the form of greed or lack of it for true philanthropists, fear and dogma have kept so much ancient knowledge from the masses for so very long.

Often when something is discovered that doesn’t fit the current dogma, it is sequestered and causes images of the last scene of ‘Indiana Jones - Raiders of the Lost Ark’ with its massive vault of crates stored away from the public eye to come leaping to mind.

Here are some discoveries both old and new to tantalize the explorer in all of us:

1. Japan's Underwater Pyramids

In the waters around Yonaguni-Jima, Japan, divers located eight separate areas spread over 311 miles on the ocean floor in March 1995. The structures are at a depth of 20-30m and are dated between 5.000 and 12.000 BC, a fact that contradicts all existing knowledge on the cultural and technological level of the region at that time

The magazine, Ancient American broke the news.

2. Ancient Egyptian Treasures In The Grand Canyon

This story related to the Gazette by Mr. Kinkaid, the archaeologist of the Smithsonian Institution, who financed the expeditions, tells of discoveries which almost conclusively prove that the race which inhabited this mysterious cavern was of oriental descent, possibly from Egypt, tracing back to Ramses.

** it may be that the entire story is a newspaper hoax, however it was on the front page, named the prestigious Smithsonian Institution, and gave a highly detailed story that went on for several pages, lending a great deal to its credibility.

3. Secret Chambers in The Rockies - Ancient American Magazine

…Entering this chamber, he saw ten stone boxes. He opened five of them; they all contained small, metal plates inscribed with an unknown script. Nearby lay two large stone coffins. Opening them both, he found they contained mummified human remains. One body allegedly had red hair with skin still attached to its bones, while the other was blond…

George Keller and a lad named Lone Eagle were playing among the foothills of the Rocky Mountains above the farm owned by George's father near Manti, Utah in an area behind Temple Hill. - Plates discovered by John Brewer

4. The Dropa Stones

The Dropa disks tell the story of a space probe from a distant planet that crash-landed in the Bayan-Kara-Ula Mountains Mountains in the Himalayas.

The occupants of the spacecraft - the Dropa - found refuge in the caves of the mountains. Despite their peaceful intentions, the Dropa were misunderstood by members of the Ham tribe who were occupying neighboring caves and who hunted down the stranded species and even killed some of them.

A translation of one of the passages says: "The Dropa came down from the clouds in their aircraft. Our men, women, and children hid in the caves ten times before sunrise.

When at last they understood the sign language of the Dropa, they realized that the newcomers had peaceful intentions."

The stones go on to say how the Dropa were unable to repair their disabled spacecraft and could not return to their home planet, and so were stranded on Earth. If that's true, have their descendents survived?

Today, the isolated area is inhabited by two tribes of people who, in fact, call themselves the Dropa and the Han. Anthropologists have been unable to categorize either tribe into any other known race; they are neither Chinese nor Tibetan.


5. Crystal Skulls: Skeletons of a Mysterious Past

The Mitchell-Hedges Skull: - King of the Crystal Skulls

The discovery of this artifact is very controversial. It was brought into the public eye by British explorer F.A. Mitchell-Hedges , who claimed that his daughter unearthed it in 1924. Mitchell-Hedges led an expedition in the ancient Mayan ruins of Lubaantun, in Belize (then British Honduras), searching for evidence of Atlantis.
