Orichalcum (Greek ?????????? from ????, 'mountain' and ??????, 'copper') was a precious metal, considered second only to gold in value, whose fame is also linked to the legendary lost continent of Atlantis, described by the
The findings prove for the first time that prehistoric settlers in Brazil cleared large wooded areas to create huge enclosures meaning that the 'pristine' rainforest celebrated by ecologists is actually relatively new.
The idea of an advanced ancient civilisation lost to history certainly has eternal appeal. It's certainly been a favoured subject among documentary makers. Now Oscar-winner James Cameron joins them. His National Geographic series Atlantis Ri
Dowth the Fairy Mound of Darkness is about the same size as Newgrange and Knowth ancient sites and was built in the same period over 5000 years ago before the pyramids or Stonehenge. It is one of the oldest structures on Earth and thought to have an
In 1976 the North Carolina state government directed a team of professors to prove that the Cherokees had been in their state for at least 1000 years. It was called the North Carolina History Project. The archaeologists and historians justified thei
Archaeology is so specialized these days in the United States that "experts" on the Southeastern Indians, Pre-Columbian Tamaulipas and the Mayas in Yucatan don't have a clue what was going on in the rest of the Americas. A Spanish language
However, if one digs deeper into the linguistic and historic evidence, the situation gets far more complex than even the historians acknowledge. Most academicians are not even aware that the Cherokee syllabary is not the same thing as the Sequoyah S
The chilly December wind whipped rain across the strewn wreckage of a city that, nearly 3,000 years ago, ruled almost the entire Middle East. Rivulets of water ran through the dirt, washing away chunks of ancient stone.
According to the Clarksburg Daily Exponent for June 15, 1930, in an article entitled Two Prehistoric Indian Mounds Found Near Morgansville (by Bruce Horton), the mounds were located on the farm of Benjamin Zahn in Morgansville, 12 miles (19 kilometer

There are secrets in Antarctica. You can sense them from thousands of miles away.
Source:University of York Summary:A team of international archaeologists believe a pair of mummified legs on display in an Italian museum may belong to Egyptian Queen Nefertari – the favorite wife of the pharaoh Ramses II.
O'Connor's team believes the crafted bone is more likely to be jewellery than a tool, based on comparisons with 19th and 20th-century sewing needles and ornaments made by Indigenous Australians. The artefact's shape, ochre staining and wear pat
Since this particular technological approach, and in particular the underlying reverse engineering, has proved too advanced for a parochial academia, it is worth restating the fundamental methodical differences between CAD modelling and visualisation
But one feature of the sprawling necropolis, which A.R. Williams at National Geographic reports covers some 38 square miles, is almost beyond belief. The emperor, who died circa 210 B.C., was buried with an estimated 8,000 life-size and highly detail
Over the years, all sort of interesting sites have turned up in my inbox from correspondents seeking my opinion on what they have found. This has included a potential biblical site in the Sinai Desert that I subsequently identified as the archaeolog
Some estimate as many as 100,000 artifacts from the Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center have been sold or donated to museums or came into private ownership all over the world. "I think that estimate might even be a little low," said Scott Hammer
The fragments also describe the transportation of the limestone blocks over the course of two or three days along the Nile by boat, and through a system of canals, to a construction site on the Giza plateau, which the fragments call "the Horizon of
The possibility that the writing on the Fuente Magna Bowl was used by the Sumerians, and the identification of Sumerian placenames on the Altiplano suggest that Bolivia and Peru may represent the "Tin Land of the West" or the "Sunset Land", of Su
A huge gap in this DNA jigsaw puzzle has been solved. Glyphs found in mysterious cave on the island of the Domincan Republic are identical to many of those on the Judiculla Rock in North Carolina, in the Nacoochee Valley and Track Rock Gap in Georgia
Michael Snyder for the Economic Collapse Blog reports If you tried to put up a large cross in a public park in New York City there would be lawsuits flying all over the place, but apparently an ancient pagan arch that served as a gateway to the Templ
If you tried to put up a large cross in a public park in New York City there would be lawsuits flying all over the place, but apparently an ancient pagan arch that served as a gateway to the Temple of Baal is no problem at all.
Having grown up in Georgia then lived a decade each in North Carolina and Virginia, I was acutely aware of how different the "spin" on history was in each state when doing research for the Bacon's Rebellion article. Virginia has some fascinati
Most Southeastern languages are agglutinative. This means that verbal descriptions of new objects or concepts were created by joining two or more words together. The "Creek" languages are especially complex because their ancestors would often jo
However, when En.ki terraformed the Earth after the Deluge, by tilting Her on Her axis, the gravity and the frequency slightly changed on the planet, and there were big climate changes worldwide as well.
Enki claims in these tablets to have come to Earth to mine gold for their home planet Nibiru. The gold was needed to repair their planets atmosphere. They needed mine workers so Enki created humans on Earth in their image.
The probable palace which the archaeologists have found appears to date from the 5th and 6th centuries AD - which would theoretically fit well with the traditional legends of King Arthur which placed him in precisely those centuries. Whether coinci
