Since the year 1990 in Germany´s South sensational discoveries of prehistoric cairns in so called quarries are made. They are larger und higher than every noted monument of the Megalithic Period in North Germany and whole Europe. 25 passage graves are known and explorable anytime.

Object found , opinions wanted

Hello, I wanted to share this object I found and get peoples thoughts on it. It was found while gold dredging this summer in the North Central Cascades, Washington State, USA. It appears to me to be a micro engraved artifact of unknown origin. It measures approx. 4.1mm x 3.1mm and is .49mm thick. It appears to be copper coated gold with a precision micro engraved repeating pattern etched into the surface.

Greek Indonesia

Rome had trading ports in the Mumbai region of India with 120 ship-voyages a year from Roman Egypt at the peak . Chinese plates from this trade have been found in the mud of the Thames river London. Here is evidence for Greek-Roman voyages to Bali Indonesia over 2000 years ago.  A book by Jesuit priest da Volta 500 years ago "A Voyage to Moluccas" described trading boats with a dragon-head having many paddlers( which suggests Viking boats). The priest was reminded of the boats used in Lisbon Portugal for Corpus Christi ceremonies.

Megalithic cliff statue

Klaus Dona, who seems to be an under-regarded scholar of fringe archaeology, has published images of what appears to be a female figure of staggering proportions carved into the side of a granite cliff in Guinea, West Africa.  He claims its height is 150m, which is roughly equal to that of the great pyramid.  A google search reveals scant details about this thing, and I would be interested to know if anyone else here has heard of it.

Aztec Death histle

Hi All,

Has anyone made an Aztec death whistle and would be willing to share the design/plans for it. They sound incredibly (ahem) Dead On.

Can’t be that hard to make, although ancients built many things we really can’t copy, so maybe thisobservation  is off base!


Azetc Death Whistles...make a bunch for Halloween/day of the Dead/Saturnalia  gift giving.


The Lost Earth Zodiac

The zodiac belt which we circumnavigate is made up of twelve constellation signs. Each of these signs represent the twelve parts of the body. Aries has the distinguishing feature of the horns and represents this part of the body. Pisces has the unique feature of our animals as the tail fin and connects to the feet. Taurus has the big distinctive neck of the bull, Leo is the lungs and heart area and has the unique mane for the feline family wrapped around the torso.

"Reserve Heads" of Old Kingdom Egypt: A Transitory Cult of Heterodoxy

The "Reserve Heads", also known by "Magical Heads", have been a mystifying phenomenon. It happened only once in the Old Kingdom, mostly at Giza necropolis, and silently disappeared leaving no trace of its essentiality. The subject we are investigating has been a challenge in Egyptology for over a century and none of the theories has gained common acceptance. It is in vain to solve such a long-term perplexity without the original codes already established in my research of 2014.

Ive been doing some research lately and I cam across the "Shigir Idol" which was discovered in 1890 near Kirovgrad. According to experts this wodden statue is at least twice as old as the Pyramids of Egypt. 

The Shigir Idol is overed with Mesolithic era symbols that have not yet been deciphered. At the moment it is located in Germany where further research is being done.

See you around!


There is a joke among archaeologists about the use of the term ‘ritual’. Basically, it seems to be a common thing that when an archaeologist can’t understand a site, when behavior is unique or when something unusually is found it is commonly described as relating to some type of ritualistic behavior. So if we have a society that buries all their trash around their houses, and then we find a trash pit on the outskirts of the settlement- this trash pit is said to be part of a ritual due to its uniqueness.
