History’s Lost Transoceanic Voyages: Tamils and Sumerians Among the FIRST to Reach Australia and Antarctica?— PART II

(Read the article on one page)

Regarding interesting inscriptions and shapes found by satellite archaeology, revealing what might be ancient human occupation on the continent of Antarctica, author William James Veall writes that epigrapher, educator and anthropologist, Dr Clyde Winters, Ph.D. was of the opinion: “ I have looked at the inscriptions from Australia and they appear to be written in TAMIL.”

On Plate 5, Dr Winters wrote: “It was unlikely that there was any connection between Hanuman and the Indus Valley, because monkey figures do not appear on Indus Valley seals.”

He further stated, “I believe this is a human figure. It would appear that these heads are leaders from various Sumerian centers that formerly existed on Antarctica.”

 “These people were probably from the Sumerian colony in South America, called Kuga Ki.” 
“The Marambio Island head has three signs. The signs near the eye reads 'Ta ga’ or 'Open (up) esteem.”
“At the bottom of the figure we see two signs: a 'ga' sign, and three circles which reads as 'se'; these signs say, “The Patron is Mighty”.

Commenting on article Figure 7 (here below Plate 6), Dr Winters wrote, and I quote directly from his opinion piece:

Sumerian Clues

Using Sumerian, we can easily read the inscriptions. There are four characters inside the 'box'. This appears to be the name of the individual and reads NALILISU which means: ‘The human being that glistens and shines (with) wisdom.’

The letters across the forehead include, from right to left, a single sign ‘u’, and a compound sign that reads from top to bottom Pa u mi Mash, or “The leader a powerful man is an Oracle and Shaman.”

The sign on the cheek appears to be a mash sign with an ‘I’ in the middle of the mash sign, or the determinative placed before Divine names. There is no name following the sign, so I read it as “I Mash’, Witness here the Shaman.”

We end Dr Winters fascinating report on the Antarctica Writing with his transliteration of the 'Message on the Shore'; the ancient legend embedded into the Ross sea shoreline, and again I quote verbatim:

“The ancient legend embedded into the seashore is also a Sumerian inscription dedicated to one of the Arctic Chiefs.”

Note: Further examples of Linear Sumerian Writing used in South America can be found in Dr Winters excellent book entitled Ancient Scripts in South America .

What Conclusions Can be Made?

There is no doubt the powerful evidence extrapolated by Dr Winters transliterations from satellite photographs taken over Antarctica provide irrefutable evidence that trans-oceanic voyagers from far distant lands were able to, and did, reach the Southern Continent of Antarctica at least 6000 years ago.

Add to this, the discovery of the huge Signboard inscribed in Tamili, the Linear Sumerian ‘writing’ associated with the human head portraiture (not forgetting the 'message on the seashore', the "Patron is Mighty’ imagery from Marambio Island), then this evidence of human occupation on the Continent of Antarctica becomes difficult to dispute.

Not only was evidence obtained epigraphically, but the characters engraved on the portrait in Plate 4 even announced a name and ranking: “NALILISU: a Leader and Powerful Man”.

Dr Winters further commented: “Perhaps, He (NALILISU) was a colonist from the Sumerian colony in South America called Kuga Ki.”

Curious to view the homelands of the Tamils, I took a satellite scan across the regions of Tamil Nadu, southern India, and the north-east and southern coastlines of Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon).

In the south-east corner of coastal Sri Lanka, on a beach directly south of the Yala National Park, I discovered a human head sculpture very similar to that on Mariambio Island. (See Plate 5)

Compare the human head from Marambio Island, Antarctica, to the bust I photographed on the Yala Beach of Sri Lanka! Notice each have the same basic ‘shape’ and each also has the Ta ga or ‘Open (up) Esteem’ signature on the cheek.

A strange chalice made its way into the British Museum’s collection in the 1950s. It is a 1,600-year-old jade green Roman artifact called the Lycurgus Cup. The image on the chalice is an iconic scene with King Lycurgus of Thrace...

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.
