Stonehenge

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…

ANCIENT TEMPLES USED ACOUSTIC TECHNOLOGIES Located south of Sicily, the islands of Malta and Gozo are home to megalithic structures created by a highly devel­oped people more than a thousand years ahead of Stonehenge and the pyramids. The monuments, including ancient temples, represent free-standing architecture in its purest and most original form. Design features, including cor­beled ceilings, are mirrored in subterranean mortuary shrines that have been carved out of solid limestone. (In archi­tecture, corbeling is a system of a row of stones oversailing the one…

PROOF OF ANTEDILUVIAN CIVILIZATION? Is Göbekli Tepe the Smoking Gun? The ongoing attempt by academic archaeology to reconcile the growing gaps in its prevailing theory of history could be becoming something of a bridge too far. At the moment, dramatic discoveries at an out-of-the-way Turkish dig near Urfa a few miles north of the Syrian border, known as Göbekli Tepe, are readily acknowledged to be a “challenge to conventional history,” but that characterization could well prove to be a major understatement. Carbon dated at twelve-thousand…

New Study Sets Out to Unearth the Secrets of Stonehenge While the debate over the true age of Stonehenge—that massive circle of stone megaliths in southwest England—has raged for centuries, scientists now say they are determined to settle the argument once and for all. Thus a new effort has been undertaken to find out with certainty just how old the mysterious site truly is. Conventional wisdom cur­rently has it at about 5,000 years. Late in March archaeologists working for the English Heritage Society initiated the…

2012 Opening for Pyramid’s Secret Doors Anticipated The question as to what’s behind the Great Pyramid’s secret doors could be finally answered in 2012, but, for now at least, the mystery and the controversy remain. While some, like Zahi Hawass, the flamboyant former leader of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, have announced that they expect to find a mummy, others, like engineer Christopher Dunn, expect to find the remains of ancient electrical technology (see “The Pyramid Electric,” A.R. #90). After many delays, including those caused…

Has the Hubble Telescope Validated the Dead Sea Scrolls? The Dead Sea Scrolls are corroborated by the Hubble Space Telescope, claims researcher J. Paul Hutchins. In his forthcoming book, Hubble Reveals Creation by an Awe-Inspiring Power, Hutchins argues that a passage in an ancient copy of the book of Isaiah included among the Scrolls found in the caves at Qumran reveals knowledge of interstellar forces far beyond that conventionally associated with the people of that place and time. The key passage is Isaiah 40:25-26: “To…

Ancient Cities in the Forest

By William B. Stoecker

It has been said that we might not even recognize an alien life form should we encounter one, nor the ruins of an ali­en civilization (at least not on Mars, if NASA and JPL have their way). But how about ancient ruins here on Earth? Are we often looking in the wrong places and overlooking evidence of cultures that do not fit our preconceived no­tions? Can we even define “civilization”? There is reason to believe that the ruins of ice age “Atlantean” cultures may lie…

Secrets of the Mayans

By Steven Sora

With the recent discovery of a second calendar inscription that predicts the end of the world age in Mayan Mexico that culture has come under increased scrutiny. Up until November there had only been one calendar tablet, recovered from Tortuguero (see Frank Joseph’s article on page 22) that predicted the end of the fifth age. For this reason scholars have discredited the implication. The new inscription at Camalcalco not only carries the same implication but was written on bricks within a wall, possibly to conceal…

New England’s Mysterious Sun Temples

BY STEVEN SORA

Thousands of large stone monuments and structures are found from New England west to Pennsylvania. If they were found in England we would call them cairns, barrow graves, dolmens and standing stones, and university-led teams would study their orientation to the sun, moon and stars. In America we mostly ignore them or define them as piles, glacial erratics, anomalies or root cellars. They are bulldozed to build roadways, developments and parking lots, and even among tenured professors, they are not discussed in polite company. They…

Song of the Pheryllt

By Mark Amaru Pinkham

Welsh history alludes to a very ancient and enigmatic sect of Druids that may be the very first wave of magician priests in the British Isles, even predating the Celtic Druids by hundreds or even thousands of years. Both historical documents in Wales, as well as the rhythmic poems regularly recited by the Welsh Bards, mention an obscure Druid sect known as the Pheryllt, a name denoting “metallurgists” and “alchemists.” The researchers who have studied these documents and poems tout the Pheryllt as being the…
