Guatemala excavates early Mayan ruler's tombEnlargeThis photo taken on May 25, 2012, released on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012 by Tak’alik Ab’aj Archaeological Project shows a jade piece in the tomb of a very early Mayan ruler at Tak’alik Ab’aj archaeological site in Retalhuleu, south of Guatemala City. Archaeologists in Guatemala announced Friday they have uncovered the tomb complete with rich jade jewelry and decoration.

Experts said the find at Guatemala’s Tak’alik Ab’aj temple site could help shed light on the formative years of the Mayan culture.

Government archaeologist Miguel Orrego said carbon-dating indicates the tomb was built between 700 and 400 B.C., several hundred years before the Mayan culture reached its height. He said it was the oldest tomb found so far at Tak’alik Ab’aj, a site in southern Guatemala that dates back about 2,200 years.

Orrego said a necklace depicting a vulture-headed human figure appeared to identify the tomb’s occupant as an “ajaw,” or ruler.

Is this little ancient toy the earliest evidence of the wheel?

 

 

MessageToEagle.com– Today parents buy their children electric car toys to play with, but thousands of years ago the situation was somewhat different.

Yet, this ancient discovery reveals our ancestors were aware of the wheel 7500 years ago!

A stone car with two axles and 4 wheels dating from about 7500 years ago was found during excavations in the Kiziltepe district of the southeastern province of Mardin, are now on display at the Mardin Museum, Turkey.

Archaeologist Mesut Alp said that the toy car, which is made out of stone, dates back to the late Stone Age and is thought to be 7,500 years old.

Huge Archaeology Discovery in Egypt. Coverup

November 15, 2011 3 comments

Rumors are circulating throughout the world recently with the supposed discovery of one of the legendary Hall of Records in Egypt.  The Egyptian government along with recently retired Zahi Hawass who ran the Egyptian Antiquities Department have adamantly denied these claims saying that no such building or chamber has been found.  However, many researchers and even some archaeologists are saying that the chamber was indeed found but has been covered up due to the contents inside and what it would mean to both our understanding of history and Ancient Egypt’s history. 

 According to legend and the renowned psychic Edgar Cayce, the Hall of Records are composed of three chambers spread throughout the world that contain the missing history of the lost continent of Atlantis along with the missing history of the human race.  The three chambers are said to be located in Egypt (underneath the Sphinx’s paw), somewhere on the Yucatan Peninsula and one on the lost continent of Atlantis, which would be most likely sunken in the ocean depths still.  Each chamber is thought to contain the history of the lost continent of Atlantis along with information on any of the surviving inhabitants of the legendary island.  It was Cayce’s claim that there were small groups of survivors that managed to escape the destruction of Atlantis and it was these Atlanteans that brought civilization to both Egypt and Mexico.  Cayce claimed that all of this information would be housed in these Hall of Records and would detail both the history before the destruction of Atlantis and the demise too. 
So, why would Egypt hide the Hall of Records?  Obviously, the main reason would be the knowledge that the Egyptians did not develop civilization independently but instead were taught the concepts of it.  This change in thinking would make the ancient Egyptian culture not as sophisicated as originally thought and all of their achievements would be questioned.   Buildings such as the Great Pyramid and Abu Simbel would have to be questioned as to who was really responsible for the technology and ideas behind the building of them.  Even the Sphinx would have to be questioned. 

Where is the evidence for the finding of the Hall of Records in Egypt?  The first piece of evidence was found more than twenty years ago and was a ground penetrating radar scan that revealed a strange anomaly underneath one of the Spinx’s paws.  The scan revealed what appeared to be a small chamber exactly in the location that Edgar Cayce had predicted the Hall of Records was to be found.  The second piece of evidence and the most important are a network of caves and tunnels that run all around the Giza plateau.  When these caves and tunnels were first discovered, both the Egyptian government and Zahi Hawass denied the existence of them.  The caves run underneath at least two of the three large pyramids on the Giza plateau and run very close to right beneath the Sphinx.  It is this cave chamber that runs very close to the Sphinx that the secret Hall of Records was located.  The Hall was located behind about 5 feet of rock that separated the end of the cave chamber to the entrance of the Hall of Records.  According to some sources, archaeologists were able to drill through and clear this 5 feet of rock and have gained access to the hall.  But other sources are saying that once the archaeologists realized what they had found, they further sealed the cave chamber thereby hiding the discovery.

So, has the Hall of Records really been discovered?  And, if so, will we ever hear about the contents of what the chamber had inside it?  My guess is that the Egyptian government will do everything they can to hide this discovery and unless they are forced to disclose, we will never get confirmation.  Hopefully, I will be proven wrong.

New photos from the Bosnian pyramids


posted from: http://forum.davidicke.com/showthread.php?t=118565

We found another pyramid yesterday, bringing the total number of structures to 6 here in Visoko.

I got to meet some Bosnian government officials today, they seem very nervous of the whole thing.
Got myself on Bosnian national TV today as well haha. Madness.
Ive had about 4 interviews for the national press, people in Bosnia all know of these pyramids, tho most dont believe it. Many of the ppl living in the town where the Sun Pyramid towers over refuse to accept the reality. They are all nervous for what it means.

The weather has been very cloudy in the morning so Ive had no chance to get some good shots of the actual Pyramids cos they are covered in cloud.

Ill show you some photos of the labyrinth system. These are 100s of KMs of tunnels which connect all the pyramids in the complex.
At some point in the past every inch of these tunnels were filled in with rocks, sand and clay. It takes a team of miners a whole day to move about 4m deeper into the tunnels, just to get an idea of the scale we are talking about.

Also, something amazing, there are large megaliths placed around the tunnels. Dowsing shows that water is below these rocks.
One has 2 separate flows intersecting creating an energy vortex.
Now, in outside air it is usually 1000ppm ionised atoms. Next to these large stones the ionized particles increases to 36000 ppm. The air is fresher, cleaner and healthier within the tunnels than outside in the open country.

Here is the block with symbols carved. There is also a Swastika. Sorry the detail isnt very clear. Bad light.


This is the end of the tunnel with the debris extracted. The wall in front is the material we are removing.

This is one of the Megaliths

Section of the tunnel. Imagine you are a grey alien and the size of this passageway is a perfect fit. Not made for tall modern man.


Tony Robinson eat your heart out!

Main tunnel splits off into 2 separate passages. We have decided to concentrate our efforts on the Right hand side passage.

Pyramid of the Moon (left), Temple of Mother Earth (right) which is more of an elongated curved pyramid. The Moon pyramid has a terrace rather than a peak, similar to some S.American Pyramids.

More soon..
