Ah the question we Modern humans avoid is the most obvious....

lets forget the statements of how they did it lets ask what form of power did they use to advance their drilling skills?

 

     POWER.................... shock horror ,

 

the undeniable conclusion is THEY HAD A POWER SOURCE .............. other than human energy. 

 

And we have to remove our prejudicial thinking and polarised dogma before we can RE-DISCOVER (discover- to obtain knowledge or sight of what was not known) the knowledge we obviously had before it was suppressed by a new dominating civilisation such as our own.

 

But then they MUST have used something inferior to our technology  THEY MUST, WE ARE SUPERIOR, WE ARE BECAUSE WE ARE TOLD WE ARE.....

 

aren't we???

They have to have done it like this but So much Faster OK ..................... YEH RIGHT .........

Reef madness: scientists find oldest animal-built marine structure

June 26, 2014

Reefs built by Cloudina 548 million years ago, are pictured in the Nama Group in Namibia in this handout photo

 

 

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A sea creature that looked like a stack of tiny ice cream cones is providing quite a treat for scientists studying the dawn of animal life on Earth.

Researchers said on Thursday they found fossils of the oldest-known animal-made reef in Namibia, built by a small, filter-feeding seabed creature called Cloudina 548 million years ago.

The discovery indicates that important evolutionary developments were unfolding millions of years before the so-called Cambrian explosion when many of the major animal groups first appeared. It also showed that reef building by marine invertebrates, akin to today's coral reefs, began 18 million years earlier than previously known.

Cloudina, one of Earth's earliest-known animals, was the first one with a hard skeleton, in this case an outer shell.

Its fossils have been found in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa but it had not been known that it built reefs - a collective activity that helps gain protection from predators and improves food gathering.

The reefs - now on dry land in southern Namibia - were small, about three to six feet across (1 to 2 meters), and stood alongside larger ones made by microbes. Cloudina, perhaps related to jellyfish, corals and sea anemones, was up to six inches long (15 cm) with a diameter of about three-tenths of an inch (8 mm)."

Ancient Man Used “Super-Acoustics” to Alter Consciousness (... and speak with the dead?)

June 16th, 2014 Linda Eneix

A prehistoric necropolis yields clues to the ancient use of sound and its effect on human brain activity.

 

Researchers detected the presence of a strong double resonance frequency at 70Hz and 114Hz inside a 5,000-years-old mortuary temple on the Mediterranean island of Malta. The Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum is an underground complex created in the Neolithic (New Stone Age) period as a depository for bones and a shrine for ritual use. A chamber known as "The Oracle Room" has a fabled reputation for exceptional sound behavior.

 

During testing, a deep male voice tuned to these frequencies stimulated a resonance phenomenon throughout the hypogeum, creating bone-chilling effects. It was reported that sounds echoed for up to 8 seconds. Archaeologist Fernando Coimbra said that he felt the sound crossing his body at high speed, leaving a sensation of relaxation. When it was repeated, the sensation returned and he also had the illusion that the sound was reflected from his body to the ancient red ochre paintings on the walls. One can only imagine the experience in antiquity: standing in what must have been somewhat odorous dark and listening to ritual chant while low light flickered over the bones of one's departed loved ones.

 

Sound in a Basso/Baritone range of 70 – 130 hz vibrates in a certain way as a natural phenomenon of the environment in the Hypogeum, as it does in Newgrange passage tomb, megalithic cairns and any stone cavity of the right dimensions. At these resonance frequencies, even small periodic driving forces can produce large amplitude oscillations, because the system stores vibrational energy. Echoes bounce off the hard surfaces and compound before they fade. Laboratory testing indicates that exposure to these particular resonant frequencies can have a physical effect on human brain activity.

A Sunken Kingdom Re-emerges

June 23, 2014

"BORTH, WALES — There is a poem children in Wales learn about the sunken kingdom of Cantre’r Gwaelod, swallowed by the sea and drowned forever after. On a quiet night, legend has it, one can hear the kingdom’s church bells ringing.

When the sea swallowed part of Britain’s western coastline this year and then spat it out again, leaving homes and livelihoods destroyed but also a dense forest of prehistoric tree stumps more exposed than ever, it was as if one had caught a faint glimpse of that Welsh Atlantis.

The submerged forest of Borth is not new. First flooded some 5,000 years ago by rising sea levels after the last ice age, it has been there as long as locals remember, coming and going with the tides and occasionally disappearing under the sand for years on end. But the floods and storms that battered Britain earlier this year radically changed the way archaeologists interpret the landscape: A quarter-mile-long saltwater channel cutting through the trees, revealed by erosion for the first time, provided a trove of clues to where human life may have been concentrated and where its traces may yet be found."

snip

“We used to think of this as just as an impenetrable forest — actually this was a complex human environment,” said Martin Bates, a geoarchaeologist at the University of Wales Trinity St. David, who oversees the excavation work in Borth on a beach he played on as a toddler. “The floods have opened our eyes as to what’s really out there.”

Scanning the army of ghostly spikes protruding from the sand here one recent morning, Dr. Bates said it was as if nature were making a point: The recent torrential rains, linked by a growing number of climatologists to human-induced climate change, have provided an ancient laboratory to study how humans coped with catastrophic climate change in the past.

Indeed, across Britain, two consecutive years of exceptional winter weather have left in their wake some equally exceptional discoveries: from unexploded wartime bombs and Victorian shipwrecks to archaeological finds that are nearly a million years old. Scientists have barely kept up. Last winter was the wettest on record, according to the Met Office, the national weather service.

Dog walkers and amateur archaeologists are being sought in ever-greater numbers to help record new sites. In some areas hit especially hard by erosion, locals are equipped with cameras that log digital images with geocoordinates so the artifacts they find on beach walks can be added to national databases."

Fascinating topic... article dates back to Sep 2013

Their Theory

 

Our claim is supported by genes, mtDNA, blood and many experts, that Australian Original people set sail from Australia, not to, 50,000 years ago. We claim that Australian Original people sailed to and settled in America over 40,000 years ago, and visited many other places including Egypt, Japan, Africa, India etc. They were the first Homo sapiens who evolved before the Sapiens of Africa, and who gave the world art, axes, religion, marine technology, culture, co-operative living, language and surgery.

Australia's Stonehenge: the History of an Ancient Stone Arrangement 40 Kilometres from Mullumbimby NSW By Steven & Evan Strong

 

According to Frederic Slater, who was the President of the Australian Archaeological and Education Research Society, an Original stone arrangement he and a colleague were investigating throughout 1939 is "the Stonehenge of Australia." Assumed to be lost for the last 63 years, this impressive and complex sandstone arrangement is much more than a collection of rocks, signs and symbols positioned on a mound. According to Slater, "the mound is one of the oldest; I should say the oldest, forms of temples in the world, and dates back to the... advent of first man."

 

Not only was the mound the first temple, the narrative and wisdom it chronicles is as profound as it is sublime, so much so that Slater claimed it formed "the basis of all knowledge, all science, all history and all forms of writing."

 

These are extremely bold claims to make; to suggest that the very first language was spoken and recorded in stone in Australia carries with it many inconvenient historical implications. Modern humanity is assumed to have had its genesis in Africa. We are told a few restless inquisitive souls set foot outside African soil some 60,000 years ago and spread their culture and genes. In this theoretical construct, there is no room for Australia to be anything other than an afterthought and merely an African colony peopled by mariners who surely spoke before setting sail to Australia.

 

Snip

 

Confirming whether this is indeed the first formal piece of human communication, called the Sacred Language, and that the 'Standing Stones' detail the history of humanity and the "Mystic Track of Life"[37] seems an almost impossible task. Slater's claim, that the first language is a seamless blend of hand signs, stone arrangements and alignments, body parts, symbols and numbers, and was first spoken in Australia, contradicts elemental assumptions that underpin our understanding of human evolution.

 

Snip

 

What appears to be even more puzzling is the content. The expectation is that first language would be the least sophisticated and most basic in expressing emotions, needs to survive, food and sundry concerns when trying to come to grips with just staying alive. Passages such as "the breath of god is the Divine light of the Soul,"[38] or "the light of truth flows like a river of fire from God to the soul of man and woman united,"[39] stand united in utter contradiction to the accepted scenarios. Instead of 'what's for dinner,' or 'Barry was here,' we get statements of Divine Purpose and mystical insights.

 

Snip

 

But of even more importance was the message written on this boomerang-shaped mound. It breaks every linguistic convention in relation to the content and way humans first spoke. Never the province of esoteric philosophers, the first language was assumed to be basic, few in number and crude in presentation. The Original Sacred Language is a sublime, sophisticated and spiritual merging of symbols, arrangements, hand signs, body parts, animals and numbers into the first spoken and written language.

 

We are both in agreement in stating the Egyptians came to Australia as apprentices, to be tutored in the esoteric insights and cultural refinements that were a part and parcel of the Australian landscape and Original philosophy. "There is no mistaking the fact that the aborigines (sic) gave not only to the Egyptians their knowledge and their foundation of hieroglyphics and their philosophy, but formulated the basis of all knowledge in the beginning, now and to come."

 

Snip

 

What is also a serious point of interest are two sites Slater refers to, which bear witness to other examples of Aboriginal writing. Being the highest authority on such matters, Slater was often called out by authorities to investigate new, and sometimes extremely old, discoveries. Conversant in ancient Original tongue and script, his investigations were brief and concise. "They had me out at Maroota beyond Windsor to a ceremonial ground which the anthropologists have been endeavouring to decipher for 25 years. It was deciphered in 25 minutes. The Manly Council asked me to give them a drawing and a translation of aboriginal (sic) writing found on the site of an old house … quite close to where Governor Arthur Phillip landed and found the blacks "Manly fellows."

 

What needs to be appreciated is that two organising bodies sought out Slater's expertise on the Original tongue, and that the Manly Council requested a copy of a "translation of aboriginal (sic) writing." If acknowledged as a language, and seeking out Slater's translation, it seems logical to assume he is indeed an expert of the ancient Original written language. If so, his claim that there is a Sacred Language, the first on this planet, must be given serious credence.

“Forgotten Origin” – Australia’s Unwritten and Untold History

He talks about Australia's Stonehenge, and a lot of other really interesting stuff.

 

I have listened to the interview several times and am still gasping.

Even if only part of it is true, the history of Australia is vastly different to what we have been taught.

10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs found in Chhattisgarh

CHARAMA (Chhattisgarh): Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture plans to seek help from Nasa and Isro for research on 10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs in Charama region in Kanker district in tribal Bastar region.

According to archaeologist JR Bhagat, these paintings have depicted aliens like those shown in Hollywood and Bollywood flicks. Located about 130km from Raipur, the caves come under village Chandeli and Gotitola.

"The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers. Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn't have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject," Bhagat told TOI.  

There are several beliefs among locals in these villages. While few worship the paintings, others narrate stories they have heard from ancestors about "rohela people" — the small sized ones — who used to land from sky in a round shaped flying object and take away one or two persons of village who never returned.

"The paintings are done in natural colours that have hardly faded despite the years. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. Specially, the nose and mouth are missing. In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits. We can't refute possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things," the archaeologist said.

He added that it is a co-incidence that such ancient images appear to have sharp resemblance to UFOs shown in alien movies. "The fan-like antenna and three legs of vehicle's stand clearly show a similarity to UFO type craft," he said.

Some speculate it is the tomb of Alexander the Great. The primeminister of Greece paid an official visit very recently, and announcements have been made testifying to the possible historical importance of this groundbreaking discovery (pun intended).

New pterosaur species discovered at fossil colony in Brazil

August 14, 2014

 

Huge flying reptile had striking sail-like crest

The new pterosaur Caiuajara dobruskii had a sail-like crest that became larger relative to the rest of the body as the pterosaur matured. (Maurilio Oliveira/Museu Nacional-UFRJ)

 

 

"A flying reptile whose head was topped with a big bony crest shaped like the sail of a yacht swooped through the skies over Brazil roughly 90 million years ago.

 

Scientists announced on Wednesday the remarkable discovery of about 50 fossilized skeletons of a creature called Caiuajara dobruskii, a type of flying reptile known as a pterosaur that lived alongside the dinosaurs, at a site in southern Brazil.

 

These pterosaurs, whose wingspans measured up to nearly 2.35 meters, inhabited a lakeside oasis in a large desert region during the Cretaceous Period, living in vibrant colonies with others of the same species of all ages, they said.

 

"This helps us to have a glimpse on the anatomical variation achieved by this species from young to old," said Alexander Kellner, a paleontologist with Brazil's National Museum at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, who led the study."

Was Neanderthal shot by a time traveller?

http://www.shieldsgazette.com/opinion/columnists/wraithscape/was-neanderthal-shot-by-a-time-traveller-1-6786186

ONE day in 1922, near Broken Hill, Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), a skull was found. When it came to the attention of the British Museum, the curators were pleased.

It was, in fact, a Neanderthal skull, and Neanderthal bones did not exactly come ten-a-penny.

But the Broken Hill skull was special for other reasons. On the left side of the cranium was a small, perfectly round hole. At first it was assumed that it had been made by a spear, or other sharp implement, but further investigation proved that this had not been the case.

When a skull is struck by a relatively low-velocity projectile – such as an arrow, or spear – it produces what are known as radial cracks or striations; that is, minute hairline fractures running away from the place of impact.

As there were no radial fractures on the Neanderthal skull, it was unanimously concluded that the projectile must have had a far, far greater velocity than an arrow or spear. But what?

Another mystery was that the right side of the cranium had, in the words of one anthropologist, “been blown away”. Further research also proved that that the right side of the cranium had been “blown away” from the inside out.

In short, whatever had hit the Broken Hill Neanderthal on the left side of his head had passed through it with such force that it had caused the right side to explode.

Researcher Rene Noorbergen, who investigated the mystery in his excellent book Secrets Of The Lost Races, commented: “This same feature is seen in modern victims of head wounds received from shots from a high-powered rifle.”

Noorbergen’s comments were more than appropriate, for forensic experts who have studied the skull in Berlin have since concluded that, “The cranial damage to Rhodesian Man’s skull could not have been caused by anything but a bullet”.

Compounding the mystery further is the fact that the skull of an ancient aurochs (an extinct type of bison) was found in Russia by the Lena River.

It, too, had been shot in the head, thousands of years previously, but had survived for some time, as the bullet hole had calcified.

This sensational discovery came to the attention of professor Constantin Flerov, curator of Moscow’s Palaeontological Museum of the USSR, who promptly put the skull on display.

Incredible though it sounds, we are faced with quite forceful evidence that, thousands of years ago, someone discharged a bullet into the skull of one of our anthropological cousins and also nearly killed a large mammal by the same method. But how could this be?

One obvious (but very radical) solution is to conclude that, contrary to what we have always understood, ancient man may have been technologically developed to a very high degree. Did a small but advanced civilisation develop the concept of ballistics long before the Chinese?

The problem with this idea is that it is too much of a coincidence. Could two separate societies, separated by thousands of years and a vast cultural gulf, have both invented weapons that just happened to fire small, cylindrical projectiles at high speed?

One colleague suggested to me that the only alternative is the possibility that someone from the future, carrying a firearm, travelled back into the past and engaged in some sort of trans-temporal hunting expedition.

Scientists: Mysterious Kennewick Man looked Polynesian and came from far away

August 25, 2014

By Joel Achenbach

 

 

post-5-0-02062400-1409034655_thumb.jpg

 

The mysterious Kennewick Man, who died 9,000 years ago in the Columbia River Valley, was a seal hunter who rambled far and wide with a projectile point lodged in his hip, five broken ribs that never healed properly, two small dents in his skull and a bum shoulder from the repetitive stress of throwing spears.

He came from somewhere far away, far up the Pacific Northwest coast, possibly Alaska or the Aleutian Islands. He might even have come to North America all the way from Asia.

That’s the argument of the editors of a new, 688-page, peer-reviewed book, “Kennewick Man: The Scientific Investigation of an Ancient American Skeleton,” that will be published this fall by Texas A&M University Press.

Scientists have told their story of Kennewick Man before in lectures and interviews, but the new book represents the most detailed account of research that came about only after scientists sued for access to the bones. The Army of Corps of Engineers, which has custody of the bones, had pressed the scientists to publish their research. Now it has finally arrived, in a volume as thick and heavy as a textbook.

The almost complete set of pristine fossils were uncovered in May when Marty McEwen and his grandson Ethan Beasley were digging at the family business in Texas.

After Mr McEwen hit a 6ft-long (1.8m) tusk with an excavator, the pair alerted nearby palaeontologists who carefully removed layers of mud which are millennia old.
 

  • Mammoth found by Marty McEwen and grandson Ethan Beasley in Texas
  • Scientists believe female creature would have been around 9ft (2.7m) tall
  • It is believed Ice Age animal died in Ellis Country after she fell on her side
  • The skeleton has been donated to the nearby Perot Museum in Texas

Ron Tykoski, the museum's palaeontologist, said: 'The McEwens have made a huge contribution to science. 'This fossil is now part of the public trust, meaning scientists can describe it, study it, publish papers on it'

Some speculate it is the tomb of Alexander the Great. The primeminister of Greece paid an official visit very recently, and announcements have been made testifying to the possible historical importance of this groundbreaking discovery (pun intended).

13 Alexander-Era Figures Who May Be Buried in the Amphipolis Tomb

by Ioanna Zikakou - 

Sep 20, 2014

 

 

While evidence shows that archaeologists are one step away from uncovering the “big secret” of Amphipolis, Greece,  people are speculating on who is buried under Casta hill. Archaeologists and other world experts have supported different theories on who is the important ‘tenant’ of the Casta Hill. See the most popular ones below:

 

Olympias

Mother of Alexander the Great, wife of Philip II, king of Macedon, and daughter of King Neoptolemus of Epirus. Cassander had her murdered by stoning in 316 BC. (Read full story)

 

Androsthenes, Laomedon and Nearchus

Alexander the Great’s three admirals are closely connected to Amphipolis. Androsthenes and Laomedon were born there while Nearchus was either born or exiled in Amphipolis.

 

Cassander

Son of Antipater, did not follow Alexander’s army in Asia. He stayed with his father in Macedonia and used to fight with Polyperchon but eventually allied with him, when he killed Alexander’s son, Heracles. In 311 BC, he killed Alexander’s second son and successor, Alexander IV, along with his mother Roxana. He died of edema in 279 BC.

 

Polyperchon

He served under Philip and Alexander. He returned to Greece from Asia in 324 BC -after the death of Alexander- and was appointed regent of Macedon by Antipater in place of the latter’s son, Cassander.

 

Philip II of Macedon

Some do not believe that the tomb of king Philip was located in Vergina. Meanwhile, others claim that ancient Greeks might have built a second monument in Amphipolis to commemorate the king.

 

Heracles

Son of Alexander who was murdered with his mother, Barsine.

2,500 Years Later, Larissa’s Ancient Theater Comes to Life -

by Nikoleta Kalmouki - 

Sep 22, 2014

 

 

Saturday, September 20 was a dramatic day for the city of Larissa in central Greece. After 2,500 years of inactivity, its ancient Greek theatre was once again opened to spectators.

 

In honor of the archaeologist Athanasios Tziafalias, chorals from the “Electra” of Euripides were presented under the directorship of Kostas Tsianos, in collaboration with the Lyceum Club of Greek Women of Larissa and the choir of the Municipal Conservatory. The performance coincided with Diazoma’s Seventh General Assembly of the Movement for the Ancient Theaters.

 

The Larissa theater is thought to have been constructed in the third century BC. It served a dual purpose, hosting theatrical performances as well as assemblies of the local governing body, the so-called “Koinon of the Thessalians.” Following the Roman conquest of Greece, it was converted into an arena.

 

Until recently, the greater part of the theater lay under private homes. Owing to the work of Larissa archaeologists, its marble seating and rich decoration has now been uncovered in its entirety.

Nice one Bot

 

I remember going down this road a while back with some of the members of Chani.

 

From memory, the Ampitheatre hosted a range of theatrical plays and musical * operas *

 

The sound carries all the way to the back of the seating areas & under the seating area where the heel of the foot was placed on the step was a Copper band that runs at all levels and all around this wonderful site.

 

The Ampitheatres are all linked  :-X

 

Footnote:-   humour of a kind i need to address

 

My flipping memory is sketchy of late, too much work &  not enough study time

 

I know those of you who will read this post will either put me right or/and add to my thoughts.

 

Cheers  ;D

ICSA, the Maltese Cross on the map on the first post links Greek Temples and amphitheatres, but I need to redo this as I was ground-proofing most sites with GE, and I no longer trust it's accuracy enough, not to mention the first map became corrupted, (like it's maker). I have since joined an archaeological site that gives me access to more accurate coordinates of sites around the world, and then can try to incorporate some Munck Matrix maths into them.

 

Since starting this thread, I have purchased just about every English written book M Chatelain referenced trying to find where he got this info, still none the wiser, and many of the referenced books were French. Need to revisit this.

Stunning Mosaic Floor Uncovered in Greece's Mystery Tomb

by Rossella Lorenzi

October 12, 2014

 

 

 post-5-0-46655800-1413162330_thumb.jpg

 

The mosaic covers the whole floor of a chamber -- a 14.7-foot wide by 9.8-foot long area. A large portion of the middle section is missing, however, archaeologists have found many pieces of the damaged area and will try to puzzle the floor back together.

Greece Ministry of Culture

 

"A large section of a stunning mosaic floor showing a chariot in motion has been unearthed in the burial mound complex at Amphipolis in northern Greece, the Culture Ministry announced on Sunday.

Made from small white, black, gray, blue, red and yellow pebbles, the mosaic emerged as archaeologists led by Katerina Peristeri removed dirt and soil filling the tomb’s second chamber behind two colossal female statues known as Caryatids.

Remains of Alexander the Great’s Father Confirmed Found

The colorful mosaic dates back to the last quarter of the 4th century BC. It covers the whole floor of the chamber — a 14.7-foot wide by 9.8-foot long area — and depicts a chariot in motion famed by a 23-inch-wide border with a double meander, squares and spiral shapes.

“The chariot is pulled by two white horses and driven by a bearded man wearing a laurel wreath on his head,” the ministry said in a statement.

In the front of the chariot is the god Hermes, the psychopompos (literally meaning the “guide of souls”), who leads souls from the bodies of the dead to the banks of the river Styx. He wears a petasos on his head, a cloak, winged sandals and holds a caduceus, a winged staff with two snakes wrapped around it. The movement is from east to west.'
