Chinese road workers unearth nest of FORTY-THREE fossilised dinosaur eggs
Egg-straordinary find: Workers point to the dinosaur eggs that were discovered as they were fitting a new sewage pipe in Heyuan, south-east China
"A giant clutch of 43 fossilised dinosaur eggs were discovered by workmen doing roadworks in China. 
The Chinese city that boasts the largest number of dinosaur eggs in the world has added a new batch to its impressive collection.
Construction workers unearthed 43 fossilized dinosaur eggs during road repair work in Heyuan city in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong on Sunday, officials said.
The city, which calls itself the "Home of Dinosaurs," won a Guinness World Record for the world's largest collection of dinosaur eggs at its museum in 2004.
Huang Zhiqing, deputy director of the Heyuan Museum, told CNN that it was the first time the fossils have been discovered in the bustling city center.
Major road repair work was halted as a team of researchers and construction workers jumped down into a ditch to dig out the fossils.
Nineteen of the eggs are completely intact, with the largest measuring as much as 13 centimeters (5 inches) in diameter, Huang said.
Researchers said they will continue to examine the fossils to determine which dinosaur species they belong to.
Most of the eggs in the museum's existing collection belong to oviraptorid and duck-billed dinosaurs, which roamed the earth 89 million years ago.
Nearly 17,000 dinosaur eggs have been uncovered in the city since the first group of fossils was found in 1996 by children playing at a construction site, the China's official news agency Xinhua reported.

Tesla, Marconi and the Secret City in the Clouds





History is replete with stories of lost magical cities. Stories such as the lost city of Z, which claimed the life of legendary explorer Percy Fawcett and his son. Or the lost city of Hy-Brazil, a technology advanced Phantom Island which was known by early mariners to occasionally appear in the Atlantic. The crystalline towers of its main city jutting up off the horizon. Let us not forget Atlantis, Lemuria and even Hyperboriea. All mythical islands lost to time or natural disaster. Even Shamballa and Agartha, which were lost in the snows of the Himalayas.




There are still other lessor known, but equally as fascinating lost cities which appear to stand the test of time. The commonality? They all seem to have some sort of amazing high technology and also appear to be phantoms. It is one of those fabled cities which we will now explore. A city of true amazement, a technological wonderland, and a city without a name which apparently has remained hidden for almost a century.


For more then 30 years there has been a persistent rumor. A rumor, which has not been widely reported but is fascinating nonetheless this nameless city buried deep within the Andes Mountains and was founded by none other then Guglielmo Marconi and his protégé’s. Powered by Tesla technology and hidden from the world.


The story as it now exists was originally discussed in a book called “The Mysteries of the Andes” by Robert Charroux and published in 1974. It was later translated from French and published by Avon books in 1977. Charroux, a world class Fortean adventurer, had gone to South America in search of a hidden codex called the ICA Codex which purported to show a lost human civilization millions of years old, as well as lost underground tunnels and cities.


The story was then picked up by Renato Vasco and published in his book “Man Made UFOs” and from there it has simmered.


The story goes something like this.


Marconi, the son of a wealthy Italian family had started working on radio technology with Tesla and pioneered radio communication. In 1896 he broadcast a transmission nine miles across the Bristol channel and by 1899 was sending transmissions across the English channel some 30 miles from his transmitter. In 1901, after improving his transmission equipment, he broadcast a transmission from Cornwall England to St. John’s in Newfoundland Canada.


In 1909 Marconi, along with Karl Braun, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics.


By the 1930’s Marconi, and his student Landini, were working on Antigravity. In fact Marconi, who by this time was a millionaire many times over, converted his Yacht the “Electra” into a floating super lab where they successfully sent signals through the earth, much in the way Tesla did.




In June of 1936 Marconi made another leap forward and demonstrated a energy wave canon for Benito Mussolini on a busy autostrata outside Milan. Apparently, according to the story at least, Mussolini had asked his wife Rachele but be at the motorway at precisely 3:30pm. Marconi triggered the device and for over 30 minutes every car suffered a complete electrical failure. At precisely 3:35pm Marconi switched the device off and the car, including his wife’s, started up.


Mussolini was said to have been quite pleased with the result and began to move towards the notion of weaponizing it. This displeased Pope Pius XI who is said to have taken an interest in the device and was able to prevent further research.


Fearing repercussions from the Vatican, Marconi then faked his own death then sailed his yacht to South America sometime in 1937. It is believed that Marconi took some of the brightest minds in Italian research when he left including Fulcanlli and Landini. The total count was about 98 total scientists who disappeared with Marconi.


Their ultimate destination was said to have been in the southern jungles of Venezuela where they setup a technological utopia complete with free-energy motors, Tesla technology and even a new kind of aircraft, which used a form of anti-gravity Marconi and Landini were said to have perfected.


It was in that secret city the scientists are said to have perfected many of the free-energy and Tesla technologies which we read about today. They are also said to have dedicated themselves to the peaceful application of these technologies and remained isolated from the rest of society even to this day. Working in the shadows to provide new and updated ecologically friendly technology.


The story first came to light in the book “The Mysteries of the Andes” by Robert Charroux. In the book he discussed having heard the story of the Cuidad Subterranea de los Andes from a Mexican Journalist named Mario Rojas Avendaro who had heard about the city “from Caracas to Santiago” which eventually prompted Avendaro to investigate the story futher.


Avendaro claimed that most of the detailed information of the secret city had come from a man named Naisso Genovese who had contacted him about his research into the city. Genvoese had been a student of Marconi and had spent time with him in the city. At the time he contacted Avendaro, Genovese was working at a physics teacher at a school in Baja California.


Genovese claimed to have spent a number of years working in the city and even published an account of a alleged trip to Mars using a Tesla / Marconi powered flying saucer. In the 1950’s he wrote about the trip in a very rare, and frankly odd, book entitled “My Trip to Mars.” A book which, although it was never published in English did come out in numerous other languages.


In discussing the city with Avendaro, Genovese claimed that it had been built with Marconi’s fortune. Marconi, before his death, had shifted large amounts of his fortune into secret accounts which he accessed to acquire the materials he needed.




Genovese also claimed that by 1946 the scientists had built a massive cosmic energy collector based on Marconi’s improvement of Tesla’s original designs. He also went into some detail about the massive and amazing research facilities they had constructed saying it was probably the greatest laboratory ever built on the planet.


By 1952 Genovese claimed they had constructed a new type of aircraft with an almost limitless supply of energy, and scientists had used it to explore almost the entire globe including the oceans. The craft was said to be able to accelerate to 500,000 miles per hour and was built out of a new alloy which could withstand enormous the enormous pressures of the deep ocean as well as traveling through the atmosphere at extremely high rates of speed. The only problem he said the device had was acceleration. It was something the scientists were still working on.


The implication was that the device was also capable of stellar, possibly interstellar, travel and it had also been used to visit various planets in the solar system. We know from Genovese that he claimed regular trips were being made to the Moon and Mars. The implication being that a outpost could have possibly been setup at one or both of those locations.


Avendaro then pressed Genovese for the location of the secret city. Genovese responded by saying that it was located at the bottom of a crater, was mostly underground and was at almost 13,000 feet above sea level. It is believed that the city is located in an extinct volcano in the eastern Andean Cordillera somewhere in the Bolivian or Venezuelan mountains.


That seems to be where the story ended, and no further investigation has been made. Some researchers have hypothesized that Tesla, having been contacted by Marconi, faked his death and also traveled to the magical city. But is a hidden high tech city really feasible? Given the region where the city is supposedly hidden and the sheer size and vastness of the unexplored land in that region it is completely plausible such a city could indeed exist. Especially if that scientists there had perfected free-energy and anti-gravity. With those two technological leaps there is really no limit to what they could have achieved.


Is this Cuidad Subterranea de los Andes, or Underground City of the Andes, real? We will probably never know for sure but it does remain one of the more mysterious and enigmatic hidden cities of legend. If it is real, there was certainly the brain power required to make such stunning technological advancements but for now it will have to remain a lost city.

MYSTERY OBJECT DISCOVERYInvestigator claims ‘UFO wreckage’ is evidence aliens visited the Earth 250,000 years ago

Bizarre finding sparks claims that extraterrestrials touched down on our planet a long, long time ago




"THE discovery of an ancient piece of aluminium is being hailed as evidence that aliens visited Earth 250,000 years ago.

The mysterious hunk of metal was found in Romania during the 1970s, when thecountry was under communist rule."




250,000-year-old artifact: The ultimate evidence of ‘Ancient Astronaut’ technology?




"More precisely, Wittenberger claims the alleged ‘alien artifact’ was actually part of the landing gear of a Messerschnmitt ME 262.

But there’s one problem with that explanation. The mystery object is 250,000 years old.

The mysteries surrounding the artifact have not been solved, and currently, the ‘out-of-place- artifact resides in the History Museum of Cluj-Napoca, next to a sign that reads: ‘origin still unknown’."

While herding sheep, Australian man discovers bones of a giant dinosaur. Meet Wade

October 21, 2016

Ben Guarino



Artist’s rendition of Savannasaurus. (Travis Tischler/Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum of Natural History)


"In 2005, David Elliott was guiding his mob of sheep through central Queensland, Australia, when two fossilized bone fragments poking out of the soil caught his eye. As the eye in question was connected to the brain of a man who co-founded the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum, it was an organ better trained than most to spot ancient animal remains. Elliott returned to the spot with his wife, Judy, excited to show off what he believed were separate segments of a meat-eating dinosaur’s limb.

But Judy Elliott noticed something that her husband did not. She realized the bones fit snugly together, revealing not a limb but a single large toe.
It turned out they had found a heretofore undiscovered species of Australian dinosaur — an immense, four-legged creature that, at 40 to 50 feet long, was roughly the length of an 18-wheeler trailer. The Elliotts nicknamed the dino Wade, in memory of a close friend and fellow paleontologist.
With the help of the Queensland Museum, the Elliotts, who are both paleontologists, extracted Wade’s remains from the ground. This was not a simple task. The bones were locked in a large concretion of rock, which the excavators broke open by taking jackhammers to its preexisting cracks. All told, they removed 17 pallets of rock from the site, located at Australia’s Winton Formation, which dated to the beginning of the Late Cretaceous. The samples amounted to what paleontologist Stephen F. Poropat described to The Washington Post as “literally tons of material."
OK just so you know, I realize it says 2005, but seems the info was just released.

Amazing, unity. Also amazing that we generally don't know about those megaliths. Looks like the same folks who brought us Stonehenge, Göbekli Tepe, Sacsayhuaman, etc.

Code hidden in Stone Age art may be the root of human writing

November 9, 2016      Alison George

cave paintings

Spot the signs: geometric forms can be found in paintings, as at Marsoulas in France

Philippe Blanchot / hemis.fr / Hemis/AFP


"A painstaking investigation of Europe’s cave art has revealed 32 shapes and lines that crop up again and again and could be the world’s oldest code"

"When she first saw the necklace, Genevieve von Petzinger feared the trip halfway around the globe to the French village of Les Eyzies-de-Tayac had been in vain. The dozens of ancient deer teeth laid out before her, each one pierced like a bead, looked roughly the same. It was only when she flipped one over that the hairs on the back of her neck stood up. On the reverse were three etched symbols: a line, an X and another line.

Von Petzinger, a palaeoanthropologist from the University of Victoria in Canada, is spearheading an unusual study of cave art. Her interest lies not in the breathtaking paintings of bulls, horses and bison that usually spring to mind, but in the smaller, geometric symbols frequently found alongside them. Her work has convinced her that far from being random doodles, the simple shapes represent a fundamental shift in our ancestors’ mental skills.

The first formal writing system that we know of is the 5000-year-old cuneiform script of the ancient city of Uruk in what is now Iraq. But it and other systems like it – such as Egyptian hieroglyphs – are complex and didn’t emerge from a vacuum. There must have been an earlier time when people first started playing with simple abstract signs. For years, von Petzinger has wondered if the circles, triangles and squiggles that humans began leaving on cave walls 40,000 years ago represent that special time in our history – the creation of the first human code."

If so, ... sorry, it's a pay to read, but it gives you beautiful rock art to look at and perhaps at least an idea of what they are talking about.

Daesh has Bulldozed two of the world's Most Important Ancient Cities- Nimrod Ziggurat/ Isis Temple PIC

Iconic Ancient Sites Ravaged in ISIS’s Last Stand in Iraq

Archaeological remains in two capitals of a long-lost empire are destroyed as battle to liberate Mosul continues.


By Kristin Romey

PUBLISHED November 10, 2016

Recently released satellite imagery of archaeological sites around the northern Iraqi city of Mosul has revealed extensive destruction at two capital cities of ancient Mesopotamia, according to researchers with the American Schools of Oriental Research Cultural Heritage Initiatives (ASOR CHI).

The ziggurat of Nimrud, a towering sacred structure built nearly 2,900 years ago, was leveled between the end of August and the beginning of October, most likely by the Islamic State.

Kurdish Peshmerga forces severely damaged archaeological remains at the site of Dur-Sharrukin while digging defensive berms and trenches at the site between mid-October and early November.

Mesopotamia's "Most Spectacular Sacred Structure"

Nimrud (known as Calah in the Book of Genesis) was established in the 13th century B.C. near the Tigris River, some 20 miles south of modern Mosul

It became the capital of the Neo-Assyrian empire in the ninth century B.C under the reign of Ashurnasipal II. In 879 B.C., the ruler built a sacred precinct dedicated to Nimrud's patron deity, the war god Ninurta. The precinct included a large temple and an enormous mudbrick ziggurat, or stepped tower, that measured nearly 200 feet by 200 feet at its base and likely measured 200 feet in height. When archaeologist Austen Henry Layard excavated the ziggurat some 2,700 years later, the ruins still stood 140 feet high. It was considered "the most spectacular sacred structure known from ancient Mesopotamia."

While no one has claimed responsibility for the destruction, it is likely the work of the Islamic State, says Michael Danti, ASOR CHI's academic director. In the spring of 2015, the terrorist group destroyed the Northwest Palace of Ashurnasipal II and the Nabu Temple at Nimrud.

The comparison to the latest Alien Mummy head to Japanese Jomon figurine

Please check out the latest Mummified body discovered in Peru.

Brian Forester has been on it.




The artifact:


Jomon Earthenware from Ancient Japan:

Please note that very interesting connection between Japan and Peru as BLOOD LINE exist....

Some of ancient, bits and pieces of Japanese Jomon earthenware were excavated on Peruvian land. The scientific research had found that those artifacts really came from Japan via soil matching.

1500 years ago's girl's body who was a human sacrifice in Peru got the DNA came from Japan in it.

...And that style of eyes... Below examples are all from Jomon period, from different sites.

WHY Japanese Imperial House specially visited Peru? 

That happened back in 1958 and 1967, then Emperor himself visited to Brazil and Argentina 3 times. 

(YES they got 110 years worth of Japanese immigrants living in Peru, Argentina for about 90 years. So basically Japan has strong connection to South America in general.)


Oh, and JOMON period's existence in Japan stretches back to 120,000 years ago. NOT 12,000.

4,000-Year-Old 'Thinker' Sculpture Uncovered in Israel

Nov. 25, 2016      Stephanie Pappas


"A ceramic vessel bearing the sculpture of a pensive-looking figure has been found in the Israeli city of Yehud.

The vessel dates back about 4,000 years, according to the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA). Archaeologists found the artifact during excavations in advance of a new housing development.




The unusual vessel is only about 7 inches (18 centimeters) tall. The container itself is an oblong oval shape, while the figure atop the vessel sits with one arm resting on its knees and the other propping up its chin.

"The level of precision and attention to detail in creating this almost 4,000-year-old sculpture is extremely impressive," Itach said.

Researchers discovered the vessel alongside other items, including arrowheads, an axe head, sheep bones, daggers and what appear to be donkey bones. These were likely funerary objects, originally buried alongside the body of an important person, Ministry of Education official Efrat Zilber said in the statement.

"To the best of my knowledge, such a rich funerary assemblage that also includes such a unique pottery vessel has never before been discovered in the country," Zilber said.

Deeper excavations revealed artifacts dating back at least 6,000 years. These included pottery vessels, flint and basalt tools, and animal bones, according to the IAA. Researchers also found a Copper Age butter churn."

Egyptian Archaeologists Just Discovered a 7,000-Year-Old Lost City Along the Nile

Nov. 28, 2016                Sara Lazzaro

They uncovered houses, tools, utensils and at least 15 elaborate tombs belonging to royals

The size of the grave reveals it belongs to someone of social affluence.


"While we were stuffing our faces with mashed potatoes this past Thursday, we missed the announcement of a major scientific discovery—a sacred capital city of ancient Egypt that had been lost for 7,000 years.

The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities announced it excavated parts of Abydos, a “lost city” they believe dates back to 5,316 BCE and could have been part of the first capital of one of the earliest Egyptian empires. So far at the dig site, the team has uncovered fragments and remnants of houses, tools, utensils and at least 15 elaborate tombs belonging to royals.

On Wednesday, the Ministry’s head Mahmoud Afify made the announcement and stressed the importance of the discovery, saying it could lead to new information on Abydos and on ancient Egyptian history in general. On Thursday, the Ministry took to Facebook to share photos of the excavated site.

The discovery of various tools and homes have enabled the dig team to conclude it's a residential city.

This city was found just 400 meters (0.25 miles) from the Temple of Seti I in the sacred city of Abyd. Experts are already coming out to comment on the find, saying it’s so important because it appears to be the beginning of Egyptian history."

Archaeologists discover mysterious 2,500-year-old 'lost city' in Greece

Dec. 13, 2016         James Rogers

The city’s acropolis is barely visible during a cloudy day on the Thessalian plains (SIA/EFAK/YPPOA).

The city’s acropolis is barely visible during a cloudy day on the Thessalian plains (SIA/EFAK/YPPOA).

"An international team of experts has discovered a mysterious ‘lost city’ in central Greece that could offer new clues to the region’s history.

Archaeologists from Greece, Sweden and the U.K. are involved in the research project at a village called Vlochós, about five hours north of Athens in the ancient region of Thessaly. The archaeological remains were found scattered across a hill near the village, according to a press release.

The Vlochos Archaeological Project is a collaboration between the Ephorate of Antiquities of Karditsa and the Swedish Institute in Athens. A team of researchers from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden and the University of Bournemouth in the U.K. began a two-year exploration of the Vlochós site this year.

“A colleague and I came across the site in connection with another project last year, and we realised the great potential right away,” said Robin Rönnlund, a doctoral student in classical archaeology and ancient history at the University of Gothenburg, who is leading the fieldwork, in the press release.

Remains of towers, walls and city gates were found on the hill’s summit and slopes, although hardly anything of the city is visible on the ground below. Archaeologists hope to avoid excavation by using technologies such as ground-penetrating radar, enabling them to leave the site in the same shape as when they arrived.

Experts have already made significant progress in the archaeological project. “We found a town square and a street grid that indicate that we are dealing with quite a large city,” said Rönnlund, in the press release.  The area inside the city wall measures over 99 acres, or 75 football fields."

"A stone slab found off the coast of Israel has finally revealed the name of the ruler during one of the most iconic moments in Jewish history: the Bar Kokhba revolt.

The slab dates to the second century A.D., a bloody time in Jewish history when a fiery leader named Simon bar Kokhba led a failed revolt against Roman rulers. The huge chunk of stone was found at an underwater site called Tel Dor, located about 18 miles (30 kilometers) south of the city of Haifa. [Photos: 5,000-Year-Old Stone Monument in Israel]

The area once housed the Biblical city of Dor, which was occupied until the fourth century. Over the last 70 years, the site has yielded a treasure trove of pottery, anchors and other artifacts from ancient Israel. Ehud Arkin-Shalev and Michelle Kreiser, researchers from the Coastal Archaeology Laboratory at the University of Haifa, uncovered the giant slab while looking in the water of the Dor Nature Reserve.

The inscription was clearly visible, even beneath the water, the researchers said. The team eventually decided to bring the slab out of the water, to prevent damage to the inscription. Researchers discovered that the massive, 1,300-lb. (600 kilograms) slab had seven lines of ancient Greek inscribed upon it."

5,000-Year-Old Nativity Scene Found in Egypt

Ancient cave art in the Egyptian Sahara desert depicts two parents, a baby and a star in the east.


Dec 22, 2016 

Source:  Seeker.com

Link:  http://www.seeker.com/5000-year-old-nativity-scene-found-2161058490.html


Marco Morelli
Italian researchers have discovered what might be the oldest nativity scene ever found — 5,000-year-old rock art that depicts a star in the east, a newborn between parents and two animals.

The scene, painted in reddish-brown ochre, was found on the ceiling of a small cavity in the Egyptian Sahara desert, during an expedition to sites between the Nile valley and the Gilf Kebir Plateau.

"It's a very evocative scene which indeed resembles the Christmas nativity. But it predates it by some 3,000 years," geologist Marco Morelli, director of the Museum of Planetary Sciences in Prato, near Florence, Italy, told Seeker.

Morelli found the cave drawing in 2005, but only now his team has decided to reveal the amazing find.

"The discovery has several implications as it raises new questions on the iconography of one of the more powerful Christian symbols," Morelli said.
