Using satellite imagery we can see that large portions of the Peninsula are now underwater and many of these roads run from the land into the ocean and disappear under the depths, or they follow a bee-line to the remains of ruined cities. Satellite Image Specialist Angela Micol, host of Satellite Archeology Research Society has uncovered hundreds of images of sacbes running deep underwater, just below the surface. New research is needed to seek out and confirm the actual size of these ocean-based ruins, but the evidence is clear; they lead to the remains of Maya cities that are likely to return dates of roughly 9,000 to 12,000 years old, and are evidence of advanced people who could have succumbed to the Younger Dryas catastrophe.

Notes for consideration: In a previous article, “ Atlantis Unearthed ”, I speculate on the remains of pyramid complexes and other buildings under the ocean near Bimini Island. I now believe there is a connection between the people that designed these buildings and the Yucatan Maya of present-day Mexico. This has profound ramifications for Earth’s ancient history, and as I’ve reported on my podcast Earth Ancients – this shows the Maya may have been a global people who influenced other cultures.

This appears to be a very interesting site which touches on many of my interest. I look forward to exploring it in greater detail in the future.

I believe more attention should also be paid to their "legends," as nearly all legends have a core of factual truth in them. The "legend" didn't just spring from their imagination completely....something had to touch it off in order for them to even think about it in the first place.

History is nowhere near as well known as we think it is.

From Egyptian to Indus Valley to Mayan civilisations, we need to study their materials to understand the depth of their science.

Fascinating reading. Read the book "1491"

You make a lot of sense.

In a previous 2-part article (1), the authors wrote about the faulty associations of the Sumerian deities known as the Anunnaki as they are portrayed in the books, television series, and other media, which promotes Ancient Astronaut Theory (hereafter “A.A.T.”).

Ancient Places

Caves of Loltun, Mexico
It goes on speak about the challenges and wonders of Columbus’s voyage to the new lands known today as the Caribbean. It even goes on to mention Columbus’s blunder in assuming that this newly discovered land was India when in fact it was what we know today as the Bahamas.

Opinion

Hopewell mounds from the Mound City Group in Ohio. Representative image
During the Early Woodland Period (1000—200 BC), the Adena people constructed extensive burial mounds and earthworks throughout the Ohio Valley in Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Many of the skeletal remains found in these mounds by early antiquarians and 20th-Century archaeologists were of powerfully-built individuals reaching between 6.5 and eight feet in height (198 cm – 244 cm).

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
