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.

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

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.

Fascinating reading. Read the book "1491"

AintGottaClue's picture

Given the anomalous finds in archaeology, a picture emerges of multiple origins and demises of civilization over a period of better than a million years. The most "recent" emergence of modern type civilization appears to date from perhaps 12-14,000 BC. It might be suggested that a few "survivors" from these civilizations carried on as best they could until building up in numbers sufficient to form large "villages, or even cities," and the beginning of larger scale civilization once again. With regard to the most recent emergence of civilization, you also have the problem of most being "full blown civilizations," with advanced knowledge (such as the Sumerian civilization, for one example), and with no explanation from conventional historians as to how that advanced knowledge was acquired. How does one go from the "primitive," to "full blown, modernistic, civilization," with no intermediate steps visible in the archaeological record? Using the Sumerians for an example, they had it all...from A - Z. Agriculture, animal husbandry, construction engineering, professional castes from bakers to jewelers, religion, sophisticated government and laws, science and mathematics, schools, a complete "modernistic," full blown civilization, that even the conventional historians are forced to admit they have no clue WHERE they came from, or HOW they acquired all this knowledge. There are, of course, other examples, as well, notably in South America, and Northwestern India. The "alien intervention" theories seem to form the only realistic explanation as to how all this knowledge was acquired literally "overnight." With the revival of the Rh Negative blood factor controversy, it also appears there is a good possibility that small groups of people were subject to deliberate genetic manipulation by those same "aliens." Whether any of the conventional historians like it or not, the "alien intervention" theory is the ONLY theory set forth (at least so far) that offers a rational, logical argument for this sudden appearance of full blown civilization in various parts of the world in the same time frame.

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

With the Amanus Pass secured, Roman general Publius Ventidius Bassus, on the mission given by Antony to retake Asia-Minor, pushed south into Syria. Prince Pacorus of Parthia of was done fighting, at least for now, and abandoned the province to the Romans in late 39 BCE. With the Parthians out of the way, Ventidius led his forces to the province of Judea.

Human Origins

Thinking Man? By Moncloa
Homo Sapiens represents the last of a long line of hominin races that once consisted of five different species spanning four continents. Today, we are the last humans, that is, the last of the genus Homo. Our closest living relatives are chimpanzees and gorillas. We, however, stand out in many ways from them. We have unparalleled capacities for abstract thought, language skills, and social cohesion.

Ancient Places

El Tajin is a Mesoamerican archaeological site located in the North of the state of Veracruz, near the Gulf Coast of Mexico. The city, one of the most flourishing of the Classic and early Post-classic period, was only rediscovered in 1785, immediately capturing the imagination of European travelers with its imposing jungle-covered ruins and unusual architecture.

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.
