Australian Mythology

Australia, a vast land dominated by desert and semidesert landscapes, was first inhabited by the Aborigines. The mythology of Australia comes from these people and has been influenced by their very close relationship with the natural environment. Most of the myths deal with the features of the landscape, how they were created, and their importance to the Aborigines.

Ancient text resources

I'm pretty new to the whole field of ancient origins/history, and I've been reading people like Robert Bauval, Graham Hancock, Zecharia Sitchin. I'm looking for recommendations for English translations of ancient texts, especially the bible, and Sumerian and Mesopotamian "mythology". I'm not a serious scholar, but I probably would prefer more scholarly translations with notes

By LAIRD SCRANTON

Along the cliffs of the Bandiagara escarpment in Mali – south of the Niger river and north of Upper Volta – live the modern-day Dogon tribe, a reclusive society consisting of approximately 300,000 individuals. To all outward appearances, they are a primitive tribe, who manage a near-subsistence living as onion farmers, metal-workers, weavers, and artisans under the often difficult conditions of a Sahelian climate, one that typically provides four months of rain followed by an extended dry season.

Atlantis

What are you thoughts, theories and ideas about Atlantis? Are the Atlantians the original teachers of how to build pyramids? Where is the remains of the city? Is it lost to all time or until someone grabs a book and hunts it down like Troy? What about their disappearence....the depths of the ocean or did they blast off to space? I've been on a big Atlantis kick right now...I've watched several documentaries so I wanted to see what your ideas were!!! Please share! And if you know a good documentary, let me know that too!!!

Need help identifying gold item

Hi Everyone, 

Occasionally we receive requests for help identifying an artifact of unknown origins, so we are hoping some of you may have expertise that could help. 

The below item is a small gold wrought object that appears to depict an eagle that has been shot through its head causing the eyes to be displaced. The feet are bound and it may once have opened to be some kind of cuff ornamentation for a bow or something else. 

The item was purchased from a seaman over 100 years ago, but its origin is unknown.
