A mysterious ancient temple-like synagogue was discovered in the Judean Lowhills. Inside the synagogue, a mosaic. The mosaic has four Hebrew letters spelling out the name of Jesus in Hebrew “Yeshua.” In this video, we’re going to investigate this ancient village of Susya and see for ourselves if this inscription speaks about Jesus of Nazareth or another person named Jesus from the 5th century AD.

Wahey!

This is the stuff I like! Its an exciting thing to think about times past when these characters were around. There are dozens of reports. All the Natives have them well-featured in their histories. There were thousands of these mounds. They were almost all plowed flat to pave parking lots and make room for buildings.

Tracing a Bygone Race in Catahoula Parish

Transcribed from the July 6, 1896 edition of The Sun, New York:

TRACING A BYGONE RACE

Prof. Beyer’s explorations in the Louisiana Mounds

Evidence of the Existence of a Prehistoric Race-They Were Big Men. The Skeletons Measuring More Than Six Feet, but Apparently Not Warlike-The Larto Mounds-Excavations Not Complete.

New Orleans, July 29.–Prof. George Beyer, curator of the Tulane Museum and Professor of Natural History in that institution has returned from his investigation of the Indian mounds of Catahoula, which he has been conducting under the joint auspices of the university and the Louisiana Historical Society. The excavations, as far as they have gone, have been eminently successful. Prof. Beyer secured a large number of valuable archaeological specimens for the museum, and brought out some interesting facts about the Louisiana aborigines; but the work is by no means complete, and Prof. Beyer will soon go back to Catahoula to continue his explorations, which, it is hoped, will solve some of the important points concerning the mound builders not heretofore known.

The mounds explored are four in number, recently discovered in Lake Larto, in the swamp country of Catahoula. The mounds were thoroughly examined, but not content with this, Prof. Beyer explored the surrounding country and discovered scores of mounds throughout the swamp region of Catahoula and neighboring parishes. The town of Troyville is built over a score of these mounds, and a large number of the houses in that section are erected on mounds which render them safe against overflow. The mounds are not high, like those in Ohio and the central Western States, and the reason why but little has been hitherto known concerning them is because the people living in the swamps were not aware that they were erected by human hands, but believed them to be natural high places in the swamp created by drift, etc. The Lake Larto mounds, perfect circles with connecting causeways between them, were so clearly artificial as to attract the notice of the people living in the neighborhood. The other mounds are more irregular in outline, or more hidden away in the swamps, and little or nothing has hitherto been known of them. They are larger than the Larto mounds, and may disclose more important relics.

The mounds excavated have yielded a number of skeletons, crockery, arrow heads, mortars and drills. They show that the mound builders were of kindred origin to the Indians, but that they lived and died in the Louisiana swamps in pre-Columbian times. The early French and Spanish settlers found no people living in these swamps, which before the days of houses extended from the Sicily (Island) Hills to those east of the Yazoo Valley, including a region of 10,000 to 12,000 square miles. The mounds were evidently erected as a protection against the high water of the Mississippi, which converted this vast region into a lake in olden times, and, in old days, must have appeared to be islands.When not a lake, the country was a swamp, which an enemy would have found it difficult to penetrate. The mound dwellers were large in size, many of the skeletons being over six feet high, and were evidently a powerful race, for the number of arrow heads and tomahawks show them to have been ill supplied with arms. The arrow heads, of a peculiar white flint, came from some far distant place, probably from western Texas or New Mexico. All the indications are that these people were a semi-civilized tribe, more advanced than the Indian tribes of the eastern United States. They had moved east from Mexico, and had finally been forced to seek refuge in the Louisiana swamps from the more savage and warlike Indians around them.

The construction of the Larto mounds recalls the city of Mexico as Cortez saw it. They were once probably in the lake–they are now upon its very border, and it has sensibly shrunk in area within historical times–and were connected with each other by means of causeways, as at Mexico. What style of habitation was built on them it is impossible to say, for there are no relics save of ashes. The life of the people is easily told from their utensils. They were fishermen, rather than hunters, and used nets to catch their fish. They must have lived on these islands for centuries, for the soil and layers of ashes and fish bones prove this. When they died or how they died is not known; nor was there any tradition among the Indians concerning the swampers when the French came to Louisiana two centuries ago.

Whether the further explorations to be made will reveal the identity and story of these aborigines remains to be seen. It will only then be possible to determine whether these swamp dwellers were the original inhabitants of the country, driven out by the Indians, or whether they came in later. What light these excavations will shed on archaeology and aboriginal history remains yet to be seen.

No idea how true this is, of course. But it is said that Abe Lincoln fully believed in giants buried in the hills. And Abe was a pretty straight up guy. There certainly are a myriad of reports from many locations.

Maybe some folk could do some excavating at some of the few remaining ancient mounds. Worth a shot. Someone from reddit, a local, says that they will be investigating:

Posted by u/IAMENKIDUlinkage

Giant remains were found in my hometown in rural Louisiana at the start of the 20th century. I’ve just discovered this, and am trying to find the precise site. It will almost certainly be under land that is actively farmed.

There used to be a site that archived the archeological notes from sites like these when the were excavated – and I specifically remember the Larto Lake site being documented there. However I can not find the site any longer. It was up three or four years ago. Whoever was maintaining it either ran out of time/money/interest or whatever or it was just taken down.

I do know this – the Zim family that started the Franklin Sun was well known to my family ( my great uncle was chief editor through the 40s – 60s) and the paper didn’t have a reputation for publishing hijinks. But ya never know.

There’s always the Smithsonian angle, that they were actively destroying evidence from this era of anything that went against the standard evolution model. But who knows.

Ss. My sister and I just recently discovered this. With work and other things going on it’s hard to find the time for proper investigation, but I’ve talked to several older people in the community that remember the stories.

The Crowville (about 10 miles from my house) site is now under farmland that is currently being harvested. Maybe after harvest we will get some answers..

This area has a pretty large network of drainage canals that were dug early 1900s, so it’s hard to know which canal was being dug at the time. Research is underway.

I just wanted to share this discovery, since Louisiana certainly isn’t a part of the world we think of when giant remains are discussed.

I’ll try to keep the community posted on what we are able to find out.

There is always hope!

Thank you!

Exactly the type of positive contributions I was looking for!

Randall Carlson points out in the second video, that the bedrock was stripped off hundreds of feet down, when the cataclysm transpired. Which explains the lack of remains present. Additionally, as you can see from satellite imagery, everything in that region swept into the Atlantic — which is 1,000 – 11,000 feet down to the ocean floor.

Your welcome.

As Randall points out, the bedrock was, for lack of a better descriptor, power washed, as seen in the actual erosion, in some areas, but not all.

The topsoil in other areas was completely removed, or displaced. Like any crime you have to assemble the evidence, and work backwards. There are great amounts of sand and salt deposits in the area. There is obvious UN-natural erosion one would not expect to see, but there it is.

I don’t know where he got hundred of feet down. I would be willing to guess maybe 20ft, if that.

There are also outside the Ring in areas fenced off that seem to have large building blocks in disarray. There are also 3 or 4 large blocks left in the center of the ring.

From the shape of the erosion in the ring it appears the salt water containing large amounts of a abrasive, sand, were directed intentionally, from above, towards the larger structures, washing them and the soil out towards the south. It appears the column of water was 800 -1000ft in diameter.

This amount of water would immediately wash away any lesser structures in the area. No real pressure would be required.

Not everything washed into the ocean. The flood water that exited the rings to the SSW was a mixture of small building stones that were pulverized, larger building blocks that survived basically intact, very large amounts of soil sand, trees vegetation, lumber , and anything else that was abandon in the city, to include animals, and people. The heavier items would have dropped out of this mud flood sooner than the lighter items. As you might imagine, any bodies, human or animal caught up in such a flood would probably not remain intact, a real meat grinder, though, not impossible.

As this flood progressed towards the ocean, more and more items fell out, leaving a massive mud flood to fill in where it traversed. By the time it hit the ocean, and filled in any inland bay that was present, virtually nothing was left to enter the ocean. “Impassable Mud”.

There were other areas that were also “Targeted”, and the waters from those floods would have contributed to the main flood. 21°19’21.68″N 11°35’23.56″W 21°29’29.78″N 11°18’58.86″W 21° 0’18.56″N 11°34’35.93″W

Anything of importance would have been removed before the “Flood” began, so I doubt anything of real substance will be found. Maybe some sheets of Orichalcum.

The flood did not hit the town of Ouadane as it was sheltered from the main flow by the mountain edge that projected to the south. It also appears the town at (No name, no record) at 20°44’21.91″N 12° 0’15.48″W also survived.

The “Fort” at 19°45’55.61″N 14°15’54.47″W appears to have been inundated by mud, and like the rings, now showing the top stones. It appears to be basically intact, but encased in dried mud.

There are some ruble piles in the center that could be excavated, maybe something recovered.

21° 8’25.59″N 11°23’29.84″W

As far as what weapon was used, I have my suspicions.

Edit To Add: If this were a military base, it was destroyed correctly……… No use to any enemy…

I hope these sites are investigated and excavated soon. Somehow, though, I get the feeling they won’t be, which saddens me deeply.

There has been no response to these findings on ATS, where the whole issue is deemed unlikely, despite the compelling work that has been presented. I’d really hoped these intriguing images would get a rise out of someone. I just don’t get it.

A most interesting discovery.

Ancient DNA from a teen girl reveals previously unknown group of humans

By Ashley Strickland, CNN

Updated 11:17 AM ET, Wed August 25, 2021

The skeletal remains of an ancient teenage Toalean woman were nestled among large rocks, which were placed in the burial pit discovered in a cave on Sulawesi.

(CNN)The bones of a teenage hunter-gatherer who died more than 7,000 years ago on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi tell the story of a previously unknown group of humans.

This distinct human lineage has never been found anywhere else in the world, according to new research.

The study published Wednesday in the journal Nature.

“We have discovered the first ancient human DNA in the island region between Asia and Australia, known as ‘Wallacea’, providing new insight into the genetic diversity and population history of early modern humans in this little understood part of the world,” said study coauthor Adam Brumm, a professor of archaeology at Griffith University’s Australian Research Centre for Human Evolution, via email.

The Leang Panninge cave is where researchers uncovered the remains a young hunter-gatherer from 7,000 years ago.

The first modern humans used the Wallacea islands, mainly Indonesian islands that include Sulawesi, Lombok and Flores, as they crossed from Eurasia to the Australian continent more than 50,000 years ago, researchers believe. The exact route or how they navigated this crossing, however, is unknown.

In South Sulawesi, Indonesia, find some of the world’s oldest cave art

“They must have done so using relatively sophisticated watercraft of some kind, as there were no land bridges between the islands, even during the glacial peaks of the last ice age, when global sea levels were up to 140 meters (459 feet) lower than they are today,” Brumm said.

Tools and cave paintings have suggested that humans were living on these islands by 47,000 years ago, but the fossil record is sparse and ancient DNA degrades more rapidly in the tropical climate.

However, researchers uncovered the skeleton of a female between the ages of 17 and 18 in a cave on Sulawesi in 2015. Her remains were buried in the cave 7,200 years ago. She was part of the Toalean culture, only found in a pocket of Sulawesi’s southwestern peninsula. The cave is part of an archaeological site called Leang Panninge.

Maros points are associated with the Toalean culture.

“The ‘Toaleans’ is the name archaeologists have given to a rather enigmatic culture of prehistoric hunter-gatherers that lived in the forested plains and mountains of South Sulawesi between around 8,000 years ago until roughly the fifth century AD,” said Brumm via email. “They made highly distinctive stone tools (including tiny, finely crafted arrowheads known as ‘Maros points’) that are not found anywhere else on the island or in wider Indonesia.”

The young hunter-gatherer is the first largely complete and well-preserved skeleton associated with the Toalean culture, Brumm said.

Lead study author Selina Carlhoff was able to retrieve DNA from the wedge-shaped petrous bone at the base of the skull.

“It was a major challenge, as the remains had been strongly degraded by the tropical climate,” said Carlhoff, also a doctoral candidate at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany, in a statement.

Secrets hiding in DNA

The work to retrieve the genetic information was well worth it.

The young woman’s DNA showed that she descended from the first wave of modern humans to enter Wallacea 50,000 years ago. This was part of the initial colonization of “Greater Australia,” or the combined ice age landmass of Australia and New Guinea. These are the ancestors of present-day Indigenous Australians and Papuans, Brumm said.

Fragmentary remains of the girl’s skull were used to retrieve her DNA.

And it turns out that the oldest genome traced to the Wallacea islands revealed something else: previously unknown ancient humans.

She also shares ancestry with a separate and distinct group from Asia who likely arrived after the colonization of Greater Australia — because modern Indigenous Australians and Papuans don’t share ancestry with this group, Brumm said.

“Previously, it was thought that the first time people with Asian genes entered Wallacea was around 3,500 years ago when Austronesian-speaking farmers from Neolithic Taiwan swept down through the Philippines and into Indonesia,” he said.

“It suggests that there might have been a distinct group of modern humans in this region that we really had no idea about up until now, as archaeological sites are so scarce in Wallacea and ancient skeletal remains are rare.”

New clue to human evolution’s biggest mystery emerges in Philippines

No descendents of this lineage remain.

Her genome included another trace of an enigmatic and extinct group of humans: Denisovans. The handful of fossils signifying that these early humans ever existed are largely from Siberia and Tibet.

“The fact that their genes are found in the hunter-gatherers of Leang Panninge supports our earlier hypothesis that the Denisovans occupied a far larger geographical area” than previously understood, said study coauthor Johannes Krause, a professor of archaeogenetics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, in a statement.

But when her DNA was compared with that of other hunter-gatherers who lived west of Wallacea at the same time, their DNA didn’t contain any traces of Denisovan DNA.

“The geographic distribution of Denisovans and modern humans may have overlapped in the Wallacea region. It may well be the key place where Denisova people and the ancestors of indigenous Australians and Papuans interbred,” said study coauthor Cosimo Posth, a professor at the University of Tübingen’s Senckenberg Centre for Human Evolution and Palaeoenvironment in Frankfurt, Germany, in a statement.

Researchers don’t know what happened to the Toalean culture, and this latest discovery is one piece of the puzzle as they try to understand the ancient genetic history of humans in southeast Asia. Brumm hopes that more ancient DNA from the Toalean people can be recovered to reveal its diversity “and its wider ancestral story.”

Pretty cool, no?

Orichalcum: The Mysterious Lost Metal Of Atlantis Found In A 2600-Year-Old Shipwreck

Ansh Srivastava
August 16, 2021

Ancient Greeks believed that the “Orichalcum was a metal that could only be found in one place: the lost city of Atlantis.”

One of the most baffling mysteries of human civilization is the disappearance of Atlantis city. The enigmatic city disappeared into thin air some 11,000 years ago and has been mentioned in some of the great works of Greek philosopher Plato. The Atlantis city is known as one of the lost cities.

Theories and research suggest that the great city of Atlantis possessed technology that was far advanced than what we possess even now. It is also believed by many that the Atlanteans did not fall apart but moved to another planet using their advanced spacecraft and ships. However, on the other hand, some believe that the extent of power and corruption present in the city doomed its future by causing a great nuclear war, a war that changed the entire geography of the land.

No person knows the exact location of the Atlantis city, but surprisingly, Plato asserted that the city was located in front of “The Pillars of Hercules”, in reference to the “Rock of Gibraltar” and North Africa. Several expeditions and investigations have been carried out to find the accurate location of the lost city but all failed. No one could ever prove the existence of the city.

Interestingly, a team of marine archaeologists has recovered 39 ingots of “Orichalcum (Orichalcum)” from a ship sunk some 2,600 years ago 1,000 meters off the coast of Gela, south of Sicily indicating that the legends of Atlantis city could be more than just stories.

A renowned archaeologist from the office of the Superintendent of the Sea in Sicily, Professor Sebastiano Tusa stated that the discovered in the wreckage of the sunken ship was probably the mythical red metal known as Orichalcum. It is believed by the experts that the ingots of Atlantis were being transported from Gela, south of Sicily, to Greece or Asia Minor. Theories suggest that the ship carrying the mysterious metal was most likely caught in a major storm and sank just as it was about to enter the Sicilian port.

“The shipwreck is from the first half of the 6th century. The ship was only 1,000 meters off the coast of Gela, at a depth of 3 meters. Nothing similar has ever been found. We knew about Orichalcum from ancient texts and some ornamental objects.”

Professor Sebastiano Tusa

Cadmus, the Greek mythological figure who is said to have created orichalcum
Cadmus, the Greek mythological figure who is said to have created orichalcum

Rich history is associated with the enigmatic Orichalcum, the metal of Atlantis. The composition and origin of the metal have been debated and discussed for over a century now. It is believed in Greek Mythology that the Orichalcum was invented by Cadmus, a character from Greek mythology.

Plato classified Orichalcum as a legendary metal in the Critias dialogue. The lost city of Atlantis was described to be elucidated with the flashing red light of Orichalcum.

“The metal, second only in value to gold, was mined from Atlantis to cover all the surfaces of the Temple of Poseidon.”

Plato

A majority of experts concur that the Orichalcum is a copper alloy like that made by carburizing. Carburizing is a process through which zinc ore, carbon, and copper metal are combined in a crucible. Upon deep analysis using X-ray fluorescence, it was found out that 39 Atlantis ingots were an alloy made with 75-80 percent copper, 14-20 percent zinc, and lower percentages of nickel, lead, and iron.

Professor Tumus shed light on the relevancy of the discovery:

“The find confirms that a century after its founding in 689 BC, Gela grew to become a city rich with workshops of craftsmen specialized in the production of precious artefacts.”

Professor Tumus

So, does the discovery prove the existence of the great city of Atlantis? Professor, writer, and former physicist at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Enrico Mattievich contended that the “ingots are made of brass while the real Orichalcum is composed of made of copper, gold, and silver, and was created in Peru.”

The existence of the city of Atlantis is mentioned in two great works of the Greek philosopher Plato, are Critias and Timaeus. Plato did not invent Atlantis as believed by many, but the traces of the mysterious city dates back deep into history. Plato writes that Atlantis was located in Timaeus:

“For it is related in our records how once upon a time your State stayed the course of a mighty host, which, starting from a distant point in the Atlantic Ocean, was insolently advancing to attack the whole of Europe, and Asia to boot. For the ocean there was at that time navigable; for in front of the mouth which you Greeks call, as you say, ‘the pillars of Heracles,’ there lay an island which was larger than Libya and Asia together; and it was possible for the travelers of that time to cross from it to the other islands, and from the islands to the whole of the continent over against them which encompasses that veritable ocean. For all that we have here, lying within the mouth of which we speak, is evidently a haven having a narrow entrance; but that yonder is a real ocean, and the land surrounding it may most rightly be called, in the fullest and truest sense, a continent. Now in this island of Atlantis there existed a confederation of kings, of great and marvelous power, which held sway over all the island, and over many other islands also and parts of the continent.”

Timaeus 24e–25a, R. G. Bury translation.

So far, no concrete evidence of the existence of the lost city of Atlantis has been found. However, are the Orichalcum ingots discovered near Sicily the definitive evidence for the existence of Atlantis?

ANCIENT ALIENS OF YAKUTIA (UPDATED)

Paranormal Research Paul Stonehill
Oct 24, 2017

In the North-West of Yakutia, in the area of Upper Vilyui, lies the area known in antiquity as Ulyuyu Cherkechekh or Valley of Death. The Tungus tribes who had lived in the sinister, almost inaccessible area full of broken rock fragments strewn around for hundreds of kilometers, for ages told stories of strange sightings. One, deeply carved in their tribal memory, recalls how their land was swallowed by sudden darkness…

I have always been fascinated by high strangeness in Russia. It’s always nifty and we don’t see much around these parts. So major props to Paul and his deep digging!

Secret Soviet submarine expedition to Easter Island in 1966…On the evening of 1 February 1966, two submarines left the Zapadnaya Litsa submarine base in the Litsa Fjord at the westernmost point of the Kola Peninsula and entered the Barents Sea. The mission and its purpose were unknown to the crew and two civilians aboard…So much more happened in 1966 around the world. Is there a connection? See below, and please support my research.

Wow, this is all new to me. Fascinating, bizarre sightings and discoveries. And as the story goes on, Jacques-Yves Cousteau is in there checking things out and gets shut down by the Chilean government! Apparently, for reasons unknown, the Chilean government doesn’t want this place explored. At all. How strange is that?
Worth a listen, eh?

The Dog-Headed Tribe of Greek Legend

NightTerrors
Feb 1, 2018

The dog-headed tribe of Greek legend is also chronicled in the histories of many other nations. Also known as the Cynocephali, or Cynocephaly, evidence of this race of dog headed men is attested by the accounts of explorers, the artwork of cartographers, and multiple historians. Who were the dog men? Where could they be found? How did they vanish from the face of the earth, and what are the odds that members of this tribe, have survived until the present day?

In Egypt, the most monolithic civilization of old, three gods were represented as a human being, with the head of dog… Duamutef and Wepwawet, two gods of war, and Anubis, ruler of the dead. Was the Egyptian artwork depicting members of a race, which at one time co-existed with man?

Reports of this race begin in Greece. The Greek physician Ctesias, in a geographical treatise, wrote that in the mountains of India, there live men with dog heads, known as the Cynocephali, whose territory extends as far as the river Indus. They can understand language, but they have no ability to speak. They communicate with eachother by barking like dogs. Their population numbers over one hundred thousand. The Cynocephali produced amber and purple dye, large quantities of which they presented as annual tribute to the king of India. They did not live in houses. They lived in caves under the earth.

Eight centuries earlier, according to oral history, the Argonauts of Greece waged battle against the half dog tribe, at a place which is located in modern day Serbia. Their location in this area is independently confirmed by Serbian oral tradition, which speaks of the creature Psoglav, having a human body and a canine’s head, with teeth of iron. Psoglavs were said to live in a dark land with many gemstones, but no sun. This confirms they lived in caves.

The most famous of the dog men is Saint Christopher, who appears in several Christian texts, and many examples of religious art. Prior to his conversion, Christopher was said to have been a savage and ferocious soldier, captured in battle on the eastern coast of Libya. He was a large man with the head of a hound, from a tribe of warriors. After meeting Jesus, he repented and was baptized, eventually receiving sainthood, and occasionally granted the honor of being painted with a human face, in later iconic art.

A Chinese historian, Li Yanshou of the Tang dynasty, mentions a dog kingdom… and during the Liang Dynasty of China, the Buddhist missionary Huisheng describes an island of dog-headed men, to the east of Fusang, a nation he visited himself, which has since been identified as Japan.

In one story of King Arthur, his men are caught in a skirmish with dog headed warriors in the mountains of Edinburgh. Hundreds of them fall under the sword of the English knight Bedivere.

The famous explorer Marco Polo wrote of his journey to the Andaman Islands, off the coast of India. He recounts his meeting with barbarian men with heads like hounds, and he also identified the breed as Mastiff. They grew their own spices, which they were willing to trade. They displayed a primitive form of organized religion, and worshipped oxen. From their necks hung religious charms, hammered from pieces of silver and gold.

We can guess what happened to this fierce but minority race. As the empires of men expanded, the half dogs were exterminated. The evidence suggests they were a proud and aggressive tribe, which would have much preferred to die in battle, rather than be assimilated into human culture. However if self-destructive humankind reliquishes its claim to rule the earth, the Cynocephali may once more arise from their caves.

THANK YOU,

Nice presentation, chock full of good information.

I do not think that the creatures contained herein are our currently reported dogmen, mainly because these fellows are all depicted as having a human body.

The dogmen of our time do not have a human body, as their hind legs are hocked, like those of a canine. So they are obviously two distinct animals.

I find both exciting.

Oh, if only there were time machines.

Location: Eastern Idaho.

xratedcheese

Genealogy (and more pictures) for Ralph Willet Dixey:

Ralph Willet Dixey (Solomon) was born on 16 October 1874, in Boise, Ada, Idaho, United States as the son of Simon Dixey and Lucille Keller Waterhouse.

Ralph was about 23 in this shot. He had a sister named Ramona.

Three years later, Ralph married a girl named Daisy, and they named their kids Lawrence, Ralph, Lillian, Richard, Edison, and Clarence,

Note from that page:

Ralph was raised by his uncle Simon

Ralph’s mother passed away when Ralph was 2 or 4 and his mother’s brother, Simon raised him and when he was older, another Uncle cared for him. Ralph would call his Uncle Simon his father because that was the only dad he had and knew. Have no record of Ralph’s biological father because the story was told to me that his mother was raped while traveling from Boise to Blackfoot one night while in her tent. The Indians were encouraged to leave the Boise area, so she was one of them that choice to head to Fort Hall where they were promised by the Government that they would be taken care of.

Primitive Forest Tribe Meets Modern Man for the First Time (FULL)

MEDIA TOUR
Apr 11, 2018

as the title suggests, this is a video of when a Primitive Forest Tribe Meets Modern Man for the First Time. white people ruin everything.

It is the Toulambi tribe (The Angu or Änga people, also called Kukukuku) from

Country/Region: Papua, New Guinea.

Continent: Oceania (Australia)

After research, i have found some information (or lack there of).
It *IS* possible that parts of this tribe have had contact with outsiders between 1920-1980, but there’s no telling if the particular group in this video has ever seen modern man. It is clear (assuming the footage is real) that they have never seen a white man before (the way they touch him to see if he’s real) and that they have not seen the modern tools he shows them. If they did have contact with the outside, it would have most likely been many years apart, possibly decades. So, not all members from that time period would still be alive. If fake, it’s extremely well done. Very interesting regardless. ENJOY!!!

An interesting read, (and where the pics below came from), is at 1920s & 1930s: New Guinea Highlanders meet Europeans for the first time.

It is fascinating. I hope to see a follow up of when they return. And, man, I hope that these folks can remain pure, remain in their world. That is my wish for them. Really. Think about it.

 

The world is a wonderful place.

Derinkuyu – massive ancient multi level underground cities

Ultimate Mysterious
May 15, 2021

The Derinkuyu underground city is an ancient multi-level underground city located in Turkey. The city has at least eight levels and depth of 85 meters , deeper than any of the other underground complexes found in the area, and is fitted with thousands of ventilation shafts and water ways that provided fresh air and water to each level of the site. It is large enough to have sheltered as many as 20,000 people together with their livestock and food stores.

It is the largest excavated underground city in Turkey and is one of several underground complexes found throughout Cappadocia. The city was protected by doors made of massive stone wheels that could be rolled in from of an entrance, essentially making it another wall.

These mysterious stone structures in Saudi Arabia are older than the pyramids

LINK

Thousands of monumental structures built from walls of rock in Saudi Arabia are older than Egypt’s pyramids and the ancient stone circles of Britain, researchers say – making them perhaps the earliest ritual landscape ever identified.

A study published Thursday in the journal Antiquity shows that the mysterious structures dotted around the desert in northwestern Saudi Arabia – called “mustatils” from the Arabic word for “rectangle” – are about 7,000 years old. That’s much older than expected, and about 2,000 years older than either Stonehenge in England or the oldest Egyptian pyramid.

“We think of them as a monumental landscape,” said Melissa Kennedy, an archaeologist at the University of Western Australia in Perth and an author of the study. “We are talking about over 1,000 mustatils. These things are found over 200,000 square kilometers [77,000 square miles], and they’re all very similar in shape … so perhaps it’s the same ritual belief or understanding.”

saudi structures

“There must have been a great level of communication over a very big area, because how they were constructed was communicated to people,” lead author Hugh Thomas, an archaeologist at the same university, said.

The research is funded by the Royal Commission for AlUla, which has been established by the government of Saudi Arabia to preserve the heritage of the AlUla region in the northwest of the country, where many mustatils are found.

Some of the ancient structures are more than 1,500 feet long, but comparatively narrow, and they’re often clustered together. They’re usually built on bedrock, often on rocky outcrops above the desert, but also in mountains and in relatively low-lying areas.

The simplest mustatils were made by piling up rocks into low walls a few feet high to form long rectangles, with a thicker “head” wall at the highest end and a narrow entranceway on the opposite side. The researchers think they may have been built to guide a procession from one end to the other. But they also found many mustatils that were much more complex than they first thought, containing pillars, standing stones and smaller “cells” of rock walls. Kennedy and Thomas estimate one mustatil they surveyed was built by moving more than 12,000 tons of basalt stone – an arduous task that must have taken dozens of people months to complete.

Very cool! There’s more to this article, linked at the top, so check it out, eh.

These, of course, are really around 5,000 years newer than the Giza pyramids and the Sphinx, but they have to toe the line or be pummeled by the lamestream archaeologists, eh.

colossi of memnon

11 hours ago · edited 10 hours ago

IIRC Lake Moeris had a couple of Colossi built by Amenhotep III that were present up to the 18th century CE and have since disappeared. Archeologists in the 1930s found the two large platforms that they once stood upon.

Herodotus probably saw the Colossi and exaggerated their size due to part of the platforms being submerged and his imagination running wild.

Two of Amenhoteps III’s Colossi, he built quite a few of them, still exist in Luxor so you can see what they could have looked like:

Colossi of Memnon.

People who hate Herodotus are just so freaking annoying. Then again, most Egyptologists are either sheep or jackasses, IMHO.
