The Unknown Catacombs of Giza

By Philip Coppens

In recent months, rumors and evidence of excavations and underground passages on and under the Giza Plateau have surfaced. But why are the local authorities mocking and downplaying these? The Giza Plateau hosts the only surviving wonder of the ancient world: the Great Pyramid. The site as a whole continues to intrigue many, and at one time every archaeological discovery there received massive publicity. But in recent years, the excavations and discoveries at Giza are receiving almost no media attention. Why? The central figure in all…

Human Evolution & the Cygnus Constellation?

DR. GREG LITTLE

The evolution of modern man has long been one of the greatest mysteries of time. When did “modern” humans first appear? When did they make the first art? When did they build the first temples? When were the first true cities con­structed? And what was it that inspired these developments? These questions form a huge puzzle but the puzzle’s pieces continue to change. For example, what archaeological site across the world is accepted as the “first city?” What specific caves contain the “first art?” Nearly…

The Fate of the Watchers

By Andrew Collins

The Genesis Secret by Thomas Knox (HarperCollins, 2009, and see also the website http://thegenesissecret .com) is a novel centered around the discovery in southeast Turkey of the proto-Neolithic megalithic complex of Gobekli Tepe, constructed ca. 10,000 BC by an unknown race of people at the end of the last Ice Age. Thomas Knox is the nom-de-plume of British journalist Sean Thomas, who first contacted me back in 2007. He had become interested in Gobekli Tepe, which I’d written about extensively since visiting there and nearby…

Hall of Records Coverup?

BY DR. GREG LITTLE

In Atlantis Rising, (March 2010) Philip Coppens described rumors of secret passageways under the Giza Plateau in­cluding brief details of an illegal excavation that occurred in September 2009. The illegal excavation was apparently a search for Edgar Cayce’s Egyptian Hall of Records. Until researcher Bill Brown asked me for assistance in arranging a meeting with John Van Auken, Director of the Association For Research & Enlightenment (ARE), I was not aware of the details. Oddly, only a few days before Brown’s request, he sent an…

The Cranial Deformation Mystery

By David H. Childress

Many of you may remember the old Saturday Night Live routine with Dan Akroyd and gang as the strange family of “Coneheads” (later made into a feature movie). This bizarre family of comical weirdos had long, bald heads that were about twice as long as a normal human head—heads that came to a sharp point at the top, hence the name “coneheads.” As funny and strange as this may appear, such “coneheads” did, and do, exist! In fact, the remains of “coneheads” of various shapes…

NEW ORION CORRELATION? Researcher Scott Creighton may have discovered a new dimension to the alignment between the pyramids at Giza and the constellation Orion. According to Creighton the so-called queens’ pyramids, two sets of three small pyramids each, next to the largest and smallest of the main Giza pyramids, are aligned with the three belt stars of Orion at two precise points in time exactly 12,960 years apart. The group to the south of Menkaure’s pyramid were aligned, he says, with the belt stars in…

Ice Age Civilization in the Bahamas?

BY DR. GREG LITTLE

In Atlantis Rising, Issue #77, archaeologists Drs. Greg and Lora Little reported on their recent discoveries in the Bahamas near Bimini which provide powerful evidence for the existence of ancient civilization in the area when it was above water as long as 10,000 years ago, a time when some believe Atlantis existed. The Little discoveries were subsequently documented on the History Channel. Weather has been a problem in much of the exploration, but in spring of this year, they returned to the area to further…

Lost Ancient Technology

BY MARSHA OAKS

Since its inception, this magazine has devoted considerable space to the topic of lost ancient technology. We even produced a video/DVD on the subject, Technologies of the Gods, and a book Forbidden History. Now two of the re­searchers who played key roles in much of our coverage have teamed up to produce a DVD of their own. ANCIENT TECHNOLOGY IN EGYPT David Hatcher Childress and Christopher Dunn “Archaeology is largely the study of history’s toolmakers,” says Chris Dunn, “and archaeologists understand a soci­ety’s level of…
