Discovering the Oldest Man-made Structures on Earth
#1
The first 2 posts in this topic are repeats from the Zechariah Sitchin thread. The third one is new. The suggestion was made to give this series its own thread and to invite the author to participate. The thread has been made and the invite has been given. Let's see what happens.

Here is the first post:

Now for some fun. I got permission from Michael Tellinger to post this 10 part series on Hidden Mission. As you will see, it directly relates to Sitchin and the gold mines in Africa. Last November Wook alerted us to the discovery of ruins in Southern Africa dated to about 260k years old and surrounded by gold mines. I explored that news a little more and that is how I came into contact with Michael Tellinger. This series has to do with those ruins and what he has discovered. I haven't read the future editions so we will find out together what Mr. Tellinger has found. I hope you enjoy...

Discovering the Oldest Man-made Structures on Earth.
A 10-part article by Michael Tellinger June 2009

Part 1 of 10

Exposing the Lost City of ENKI

Scholars have told us that the first civilisation on Earth emerged between the rivers Tigris and Euphrates in a land called Sumer some 6000 years ago. Recent archaeological findings suggest that the Sumerians may have inherited some of their knowledge and symbolisms from an earlier civilisation that emerged many thousands of years earlier in southern Africa – the cradle of humankind. The constant references to southern Africa in the Sumerian texts as a ‘time before time’ leaves very little doubt that this was the case.

Why have we been so resistant to this information?
Is it our arrogance?
Or are we just scared of change?

The discovery of the oldest statue of the Hawk Head of Horus, about 260,000 years old; petroglyphs of winged disks with a cross, and two pyramids aligned to Adam’s Calendar and the rise of Orion, are forcing us to rewrite human history. Let us cast the dogma of our existing knowledge aside and embrace the new evidence.

[Image: adamcalender%20still%20-%20%2010b%20(2).jpg]

Adam’s Calendar – Should actually be called ENKI’s calendar. The flagship ruin at the centre of the largest and most mysterious ancient city on Earth. The Sumerian tablets tell us that this was a special place of observation built by ENKI in the deep ABZU (South Africa) around 260,000 years ago. Before the ADAMU was created.

When I wrote and released ‘Slave Species of god’ I never realised the kind of impact it would have on people all over the world. I am quite overwhelmed to have received feedback from readers in over 20 countries, describing how it has changed their lives and allowed them to question without fear of being punished by some invisible old man in the sky. But the biggest surprise has been meeting Johan Heine at one of my talks which opened up the floodgates of the next phase of my research.

When Johan first introduced me to the ancient stone ruins of southern Africa, I had no idea of the incredible discoveries we would make in the year or two that followed. The photographs, artefacts and evidence we have accumulated points unquestionably to a lost and never-before-seen civilisation that predates all others – not by just a few hundred years, or a few thousand years… but many thousands of years. These discoveries are so staggering that they will not be easily digested by the mainstream historical and archaeological fraternity, as we have already experienced. It will require a complete paradigm shift in how we view our human history.

I see myself as a fairly open-minded chap but I will admit that it took me well over a year for the penny to drop, and for me to realise that we are actually dealing with the oldest structures ever built by humans on Earth.

The main reason for this is that we have been taught that nothing of significance has ever come from southern Africa. That the powerful civilisations all emerged in Sumeria and Egypt and other places. We are told that until the settlement of the BANTU people from the north, which was supposed to have started sometime in the 12th century AD, this part of the world was filled by hunter gatherers and so-called Bushmen, who did not make any major contributions in technology or civilisation.

Little did we realise that long before Egypt and long before Sumeria, there was a huge ancient city in what the Sumerian tablets call the ABZU (southern Africa). The lost and the first city of ENKI – the Sumerian deity and creator of humankind who was responsible for cloning the species we call Homo sapiens. ABZU is often incorrectly translated as “HELL” by those who grapple with the true meaning of mythology. This is far from the truth because the ABZU was simply known as the land below the equator, where the gold came from. Sumerian tablets tell us clearly that ENKI established a base in the ABZU (southern Africa). This base grew into a very large ancient city occupied by the early human slaves who toiled in the gold mines.

We believe we have now discovered this large city he created. At its peak it was larger than modern-day Johannesburg, covering over 20,000 square kilometres. It consists of well over 100,000 stone ruins still today. These were linked by ancient roads and places of work and worship. ENKI controlled his gold mining operations from here and the fortress of Great Zimbabwe was his headquarters. The evidence of gold mining is everywhere in this part of the world and not only do historic records point to this as being the first place that gold was extracted by humans, new scientific research is there to support it.

Our research has shown that the ancient ruins of South Africa and Zimbabwe go back to around 260,000 years the very first appearance of humans on Earth. I will take you on a journey of discovery as we experienced it over the past 2 years, since late 2007.

Part 2 of 10
A 10-part article by Michael Tellinger

[Image: stone.jpg]

The Stone Man at Adam’s Calendar looked out at the sunrise at the Spring Equinox at least 160,000 years ago.

This ‘African Stonehenge’ which we have called ‘Adam’s Calendar’ has for the first time created a link to the countless other circular stone ruins in southern Africa and suggests that these ruins are much older than we thought.

Our first calculations of the calendar were made based on the rise of Orion – flat on the horizon and in line with our 3 Orion monoliths on the outer perimeter of the calendar. But new measurements keep increasing the age. The first calculation was at least 25,000 years which was based on the precessional wobble of Earth which completes a full cycle every 26,000 years (approx).

The next calculation was presented by a master archaeoastronomer who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of ridicule by the academic fraternity. His calculation was based on the rise of Orion and suggested an age of at least 75,000 years. This is the reason why we used this age on the cover of our book – Adam’s Calendar. The most recent calculation in June 2009 suggests an age of at least 160,000 years, also based on the rise of Orion, flat on the horizon.

Not too far from the calendar lies the stone ruin complex that links Waterval Boven, Machadodorp, Carolina, Badplaas and Dullstroom. This covers an area larger then modern-day Johannesburg and has emerged as the largest and most mysterious ancient city on Earth. It is vital that this site be declared a World Heritage site ASAP. The discovery of carved dolerite statues of giant birds, some resembling Horus, and petroglyphs of winged disks, suggests that the prototype Sumerian and Egyptian civilisations had their origins in southern Africa thousands of years before they emerged in the north.

But the research has also shown that these stone settlements represent the most mysterious and misunderstood structures found to date. The strange and confusing walled-roads that link all the circular ruined structures are very perplexing and make no sense at all. Why would ancient people go to all the trouble of building roads lined along their sides with billions of stones, which had to be carried to site from many kilometres away?

In our new book called “Temples Of The African Gods” I propose a whole new theory about these structures. A theory that will probably freak out a large number of readers because we have been taught that we are the pinnacle of human existence and it is simply not possible that ancient people could have had more advanced knowledge and technology to us today. How silly and ignorant some of us can be!!!

The thousands of ancient gold mines discovered over the past 500 years, points to a vanished civilisation that lived and dug for gold in this part of the world for thousands of years. And if this is in fact the cradle of humankind, we may be looking at the activities of the oldest civilisation on Earth.

But the calendar remains the centrepiece among the ruins. Johan Heine discovered Adam’s Calendar in 2003, quite by accident. He was on route to find one of his pilots who crashed his plane on the edge of the cliff. Next to the crash site Johan noticed a very strange arrangement of large stones sticking out of the ground. While rescuing the injured pilot from about 20 metres down the side of the cliff, Johan walked over to the monoliths and immediately realised that they were aligned to the cardinal points of Earth – north, south, east and west. There were at least 3 monoliths aligned towards the sunrise, but on the west side of the aligned monoliths there was a mysterious hole in the ground – something was missing. Could that be the link to the whole calendar site?

Weeks and months of measuring and observing the movements of the sun Johan concluded that it was perfectly aligned with the rise and fall of the sun. He determined the solstices and the equinoxes. But the mysterious hole in the ground remained a big puzzle. One day, while contemplating the reason for the hole, the local horse trail expert, Christo, came riding by. He quickly explained to Johan that there was a strange shaped stone, which was removed from the spot some time ago. Apparently it stood somewhere near the entrance to the nature reserve.

After an extensive search, Johan found the anthropomorphic (humanoid shape) in tact and proudly placed with a plaque stuck to it. It was used by the Blue Swallow foundation to commemorate the opening of the Blue Swallow reserve in 1994. The irony is that it was removed from the most important ancient site found to date and mysteriously returned to the reserve – for slightly different reasons.

Since then we have discovered that Adam’s Calendar is probably the most sacred site on Earth and is well known amongst Sangomas and Shamans. The most beloved and inspirational among this elite group is Credo Mutwa. In a long interview with him in 2008, Credo told me that he was initiated at the site in 1937 and that it was indeed the most precious and sacred site. He asked me with tears in his eyes – “Mr Michael… please save this sacred site… protect it from the greedy developers and other ignorant people. It has to be saved for the future of humanity because this is the place where ‘Heaven mated with mother Earth’”.
At that time I did not understand the real meaning of Credo’s statement, and it took me another year of research for the penny to drop and to fully understand what he meant. This will be revealed on the next part of my article.

Discovering the Oldest Man-made Structures on Earth.

A 10-part article by Michael Tellinger October 2009

Part 3 of 10

So why is this Adam’s Calendar so special? The more research we do around it, the more we realise how important this structure is. The one thing we could not figure out was how the calendar was linked to the thousands of circular stone ruins in the greater part of southern Africa.

The first estimates of the number of stone ruins was made in 1891 by Theodore Bent who had a real fascination with the stone ruins. He was the first person to document his excavations of Great Zimbabwe at the time and estimated that there were about 4,000 stone ruins in this part of the world.

In the early 70s Roger Summers calculated around 20,000 stone ruins. After my first year of living among the ruins and researching them extensively, I concluded that there are at least 100,000. This was confirmed by Prof. Revil Mason, retired head of Archaeology at the University Of The Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. He immediately retracted his statement when I suggested that this would put at least 1 million people living and working here some 200 - 400 years ago. By the middle of 2009 I realised that we are looking at probably around 200,000 stone ruins. The more mountains I climbed the larger this ancient settlement became.

You see, this is where all the earlier researchers always got tripped up, because they did not have the benefit of aerial and satellite photography. Thanks to Johan Heine’s work over an extended period we could make much more accurate calculations than ever before.

But let’s get back to the this population thing, which is a huge problem for historians, because the population models and our history books suggest that the there were no more than 200,000 people living in the greater part of southern Africa between 200 – 400 years ago. It is quite obvious that it would require a much larger population to build so many stone structures. One of my favourite laughable theories, that are repeatedly presented by our tertiary institutions and leading archaeologists, is that many of these ancient stone settlements were built by the women and children. Do with this theory what you want.

But the link between Adam’s Calendar and the stone ruins still evaded us. For some reason we were under the impression that the Barberton valley and impact crater did not have any stone ruins. The valley is the entire flat area, surrounded by mountains, which is overlooked by Adam’s Calendar. Until my friend Brian Young called me one day in great excitement, saying that he found a circle. Fortunately for me Brian is a superb pilot who runs a flying school right in the heart of the Barberton valley. We went flying on several occasion and not only did we find many stone circles but also the ancient roads that connected them all at some stage in the distant past. We also found gold mines and many other strange anomalies.

Suddenly it became quite obvious. If this was indeed Enki’s calendar, at the dawn of humanity, the entire valley would have been the main settlement and gold-mining area in the entire southern African region. From the edge of the mountain top where the calendar is perched, you can see the entire valley. The master looking down on his slaves producing gold, in thousands of gold mines. The most impressive of all would have been a hidden mine just north of Adam’s Pyramids, perched right in the middle of the valley. A mine that was rediscovered by prospectors many thousands of years later, and appropriately named, Sheba Gold Mine.
Did I say pyramids? You heard right. We will deal with the growing body of evidence in the next article.

Since I don't have the magical powers to move posts between threads, I just reposted the first two parts and then added the third. Sorry I couldn't add the posts in between. This thread isn't just for reading his series, but to take a good look at what he is saying also. so don't be shy about commenting. I think what he has found is lots of fun. The mainstream must be having fits.

Here is some additional support for an active culture in South Africa long ago:
Quote:The Stone Age version of successful businessmen like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates might have been involved in the color and glue trade.

A once-thriving 58,000-year-old ochre powder production site has just been discovered in South Africa. The discovery offers a glimpse of what early humans valued and used in their everyday lives.

The finding, which will be described in the Journal of Archaeological Science, also marks the first time that any Stone Age site has yielded evidence for ochre powder processing on cemented hearths -- an innovation for the period. A clever caveman must have figured out that white ash from hearths can cement and become rock hard, providing a sturdy work surface.

I haven't received anything that says it is the next part of the 10 part series, but I did get a few short items (with pictures!!). I'm not too sure about the Hindu symbol thing, but it is an interesting idea. Tellinger will be doing a US tour this fall. I'll give you all more info when I get it. It almost seems like he is a lone voice in the wilderness trying to call attention to what he has discovered, but doesn't have the resources to fully develop and show off his find.
Quote:[Image: The%20hundu%20influene.JPG]
The Hindu Influence:

This is a well known symbol of fertility in Hindu culture. There is much evidence that there was an abundance of Hindu, Chinese and Arabic gold miners trading with the east as far back as 2000 BC or even earlier. The question that needs to be asked is: Is it possible that all these symbols originated in Africa with the early humans and get dispersed around the globe, only to return back thousands of years later as adapted by their newly civilised custodians? The more research I do around these magnificent ruins, the more it seems that much of the basic stone building styles and architecture also originated here in southern Africa along with the early humans. The similarities can be seen all over the world.

Best regards,

Michael Tellinger
Quote:[Image: Ancient%20roads.JPG]
Ancient Roads:
The badly eroded ruins are linked by ancient roads that run for thousands of kilometres when added up. What did they need roads for? And who built them? Remember that when the Portuguese explorers arrived here in the late1400s, the wheel was not used by the locals. My new book Temples Of The African Gods goes into great detail about the knowledge of energy in ancient times. This is directly linked to these co-called ancient roads. Also see my interviews on YouTube, Coast 2 Coast, Mike Schults-Portland, Hillary Raimo, theinvestigatorsreport.com and Project Camelot for much more information. The new book will be in the UK and USA from May 2010.

Largest Ancient Settlements
Seeing these magnificent ruined structures from the air, forces us to reconsider the size of the ancient population that lived in these part of southern Africa thousands of years ago. While some walls have remained, many of the lesser walls of the larger extended settlement have eroded to the ground. But the complexity and size of the original expanse is still clearly visible. Unfortunately this effect is completely lost to visitors on the ground and from my own experience you would not even know that you are in the centre of such a complex at ground level. This has caused much destruction by developers, landowners and forestry, mostly due to ignorance and disinformation from esteemed academics who have claimed that these ruins are just cattle kraal, of no historic importance. It is imperative that we distribute this knowledge about these ancient ruins and share the information as widely as possible. It is now evident that we are dealing with a vanished ancient civilisation, most likely destroyed by the flood of some 13,000 years ago. Therefore, most of the ruin are covered by soil and sediment. Please support the MaKomati Foundation at http://www.makomati.org where you can to help us protect these ruins.

Thousands of impressive ruins like this one below, have been destroyed by forestry and ignorance over the last century. Here (pic below) they put a
road right through the ruin, pushing aside some huge monoliths that were arranged in the middle. The purpose and its original layout will never be
known. It is however encouraging that SAPPI, a forestry giant in southern Africa has acknowledged the significance of these ruins and has begun a
program to maintain and preserve some of the ruins on their land. I have established a good relationship with SAPPI and together with their team, and a
team provided by Johan Heine, we keep the ruins clear of weeds and invasive species. In this way we can share the spectacular sites with tourists and
those interested in the very ancient human history on planet Earth. All funding for this comes from Johan Heine and myself from talks and book sales. So
please support the MaKomati Foundation if you can with a small d onation to help us with this ongoing task. Or just buy our books online.

Here is what Tellinger said:

But new measurements keep increasing the age. The first calculation was at least 25,000 years which was based on the precessional wobble of Earth which completes a full cycle every 26,000 years (approx).

The most recent calculation in June 2009 suggests an age of at least 160,000 years, also based on the rise of Orion, flat on the horizon.
Whether or not this is accurate, they certainly have found a bunch of stuff no one knew about, and that is interesting all in itself. To think it might be as old as they claim is really mindblowing. Zechariah Sitchin made the claim that the Anunnaki were in Africa hundreds of thousands of years ago and it was one of his claims I felt a little squeamish about. Poof. Not anymore. If this is all on the up and up, then ZS just went way up on the credibility scale. I used to say I believed about 50% of what he says, this moves that up to 70 or 80%.

Some of those are ruins, and some of those are glacial morphologies IMO.

You would have to prove that it is from the African site.
It is the only true closeup available that I see plausible, and I think he has suggestive used
an actual ruin from India, or Hindu as he called it.

This image looks like stone corralling for livestock by nomads, and even possible ponding attempts in the center, or housing in the center.
I could not give this one a geologic attribution.

They know for fact that we have ice ages every 100,000 yrs or thereabouts. When ice ages hit the depths of the oceans drop a 100 ft or maybe more. There are ruins under the ocean that we will never see until the next ice age. How old are they? Many of these are off the coast of Japan.

Here is the last thing I got, but it doesn't really fit as a full document, more like a request for money.


The internal structure of these ruins are a real mystery and yet there are common structural threads that run through many of them. Firstly, they are all circular and yet each one is completely unique. The small enclosures with no imaginable purpose and no doors is one such common feature. So-called experts have come out here and remark about the no-door mystery, but inthe same breath they tell us that "it must have been built by a small family of 15-20 people, while migrating south. Their ignorance is stupendous. Furhtermore, this is not consistent with how we plan suburbs and cities today. In low-cost suburbs we slap thousands of identical houses together.
Remember that there are over 10 million of these stone structures in southern Africa. If these ancients needed so many structures, why did they not just buid the same structure over and over again? I reveval all these mysteries and more in our book Temples Of The African Gods.

Please support the MaKomati Foundation with a donation if you are able to help us preserve and maintain the ruins. http://www.makomati.org
At this stage it seems that the government of South Africa is the biggest hurdle to do any research and provide protection. We are constantly working on this but it is prooving to be a very difficult task.

The oceans were as much as 400 feet lower in Ice Age peaks from some reports.
250-300 feet are very reliable numbers.

Oldest Man-Made Structure Found in Greek Cave

http://news.discovery.com/archaeology/o ... -cave.html

The oldest known example of a man-made structure was found within a prehistoric cave in central Greece, according to the Greek culture ministry.

The structure is a stone wall that blocked two-thirds of the entrance to the Theopetra cave near Kalambaka on the north edge of the Thessalian plain. It was constructed 23,000 years ago, probably as a barrier to cold winds.

“An optical dating test, known as Optically Stimulated Luminescence, was applied on quartz grains nested within the stones. We dated four different samples from the sediment and soil materials, and all provided identical dates,” Nikolaos Zacharias, director of the laboratory of archaeometry at the University of Peloponnese, told Discovery News.

According to a statement by the ministry of culture, “the dating matches the coldest period of the most recent ice age, indicating that the cavern’s inhabitants built the stone wall to protect themselves from the cold.”

Excavated since 1987, the Theopetra cave is well known to palaeontologists as it was used and inhabited continuously from the Palaeolithic period onwards (50,000 to 5,000 years ago).

“The newly discovered stone structure is important as it shows the technological level of humans at that time,” Zacharias said.

I haven't been getting any more updates from Tellinger. He is on a publicity tour of the States, so maybe that is why, but I kind of feel like we have been left hanging.

I like that they keep finding evidence that we are older than the mainstream would have us believe. I want to know the stories behind these artifacts. How dare these early humans not leave written messages that would last tens of thousands of years.

I was at the NY Museum of Natural History today. I had to see the origins of man area. Believe it or not, it wasn't bad. Here and there I still found some references to homo sapiens being only about 30,000 years old. Most of the exhibits were almost explicitly vague with the ages for homo sapiens being somewhere in the million year age. Vague, because they would show a time line and place a fossil skull under the million year line which would then fill up from current to about 1.5 million years ago. So, I will give them credit for changing their point of view from recent to much older. Can't say the same for their space museum, but that is another thread.

The point I was making is that it doesn't matter what method is used to pass
on the message, it will not survive long. Even our CD Roms and micro-data storage
systems won't last, firstly the tens of thousands of years before a new civilisation
appears and then the extra thousands before technology catches up to be able to
read the data.

The ancients actually, imo, did the very best they could do. They built megalithic
structures which could stand the test of time. Most were, no doubt, for their
own socio-economic purposes at that time. Some possibly were specifically
built as messages to future generations. But to build the likes of the Giza pyramids
and Stonehenge also required some mastery (i.e. enslavement or tight social control)
over social systems to enable such construction over the hundreds and thousands of
years required.

What they did leave us is up to us to protect and invest in deciphering. And the likes
of archaeo-astronomy does not receive the funding that it deserves, indeed the
traditional archaeologists are still heavily encamped in maintaining the slow and cumbersome
excavation techniques, which modern techniques like carbon dating still don't do much
except fiddle at the margins of current dating systems.

The astronomy alignments which can do that are promoted by the merry band of brothers
of "alternative" thinkers who are not given much credance, even those from scholarly backgrounds.
It will stay that way for a long time I think, certainly here in the UK where archaeo-astronomy
all but died since since the passing of Alexander Thom and his work on stone circles.
Elsewhere, particularly the USA researchers do a little better, but not much better, not yet
enough to turn the rudder and point in new directions.

Ancient man is but an unsophisticated package of flesh and bone, unworthy of research
into deeper cranial ability. To do so would be too much embarassment and humiliation
for the arrogance of the current establishment. Old ways take a long time to die and we don't
have a mind set which looks to leaving any messages of significance to future generations.
Why should we, our civilsation is beyond catastrophy, isn't it?!

Tellinger has a 7 part YouTube series explaining Adam's Calander.  I haven't watched it all yet, but am in the process of doing so.  Here is the link to the first one:

He talks about carved stones, and I was a little dubious and then in part 2 he shows a stone with definite carved grooves.  Ok, he has my attention now.  The carved stones and monoliths are made of different rock than the surrounding rock and there is no immediate source, so the stones were placed.  These are dated at 200,000 years old.  The line up with the sunrise and equinox shows the age.  He shows a carving of Horace, a bird head on a square base that is pretty convincing, dated at 260,000 years old.  He then does a walk through that is pretty impressive and shows the whole site was a created site but then spoils it for me by talking of psychics and human sacrifice and then the place of the first goddesses impregnated with humans.  He does explain that it fits with the description of the location from the Sumerian tablets. 

There is a 3d flyby video I liked also.  It sort of makes the whole thing seem a little more real.  They only give a date of 75,000 years old in this short little video, but it shows all the major features.  At least view it if you don't have time for the hour it takes to view his 7 part series mentioned earlier.  He definitely found an ancient site but I'm not sure of all his conclusions.  It is something to keep an eye on though.

Here is the first post:

Now for some fun. I got permission from Michael Tellinger to post this 10 part series on Hidden Mission. As you will see, it directly relates to Sitchin and the gold mines in Africa. Last November Wook alerted us to the discovery of ruins in Southern Africa dated to about 260k years old and surrounded by gold mines. I explored that news a little more and that is how I came into contact with Michael Tellinger. This series has to do with those ruins and what he has discovered. I haven't read the future editions so we will find out together what Mr. Tellinger has found. I hope you enjoy...

Discovering the Oldest Man-made Structures on Earth.
A 10-part article by Michael Tellinger June 2009

Part 1 of 10

Exposing the Lost City of ENKI

Scholars have told us that the first civilisation on Earth emerged between the rivers Tigris and Euphrates in a land called Sumer some 6000 years ago. Recent archaeological findings suggest that the Sumerians may have inherited some of their knowledge and symbolisms from an earlier civilisation that emerged many thousands of years earlier in southern Africa – the cradle of humankind. The constant references to southern Africa in the Sumerian texts as a ‘time before time’ leaves very little doubt that this was the case.

Why have we been so resistant to this information?
Is it our arrogance?
Or are we just scared of change?

The discovery of the oldest statue of the Hawk Head of Horus, about 260,000 years old; petroglyphs of winged disks with a cross, and two pyramids aligned to Adam’s Calendar and the rise of Orion, are forcing us to rewrite human history. Let us cast the dogma of our existing knowledge aside and embrace the new evidence.

Adam’s Calendar – Should actually be called ENKI’s calendar. The flagship ruin at the centre of the largest and most mysterious ancient city on Earth. The Sumerian tablets tell us that this was a special place of observation built by ENKI in the deep ABZU (South Africa) around 260,000 years ago. Before the ADAMU was created.

When I wrote and released ‘Slave Species of god’ I never realised the kind of impact it would have on people all over the world. I am quite overwhelmed to have received feedback from readers in over 20 countries, describing how it has changed their lives and allowed them to question without fear of being punished by some invisible old man in the sky. But the biggest surprise has been meeting Johan Heine at one of my talks which opened up the floodgates of the next phase of my research.

When Johan first introduced me to the ancient stone ruins of southern Africa, I had no idea of the incredible discoveries we would make in the year or two that followed. The photographs, artefacts and evidence we have accumulated points unquestionably to a lost and never-before-seen civilisation that predates all others – not by just a few hundred years, or a few thousand years… but many thousands of years. These discoveries are so staggering that they will not be easily digested by the mainstream historical and archaeological fraternity, as we have already experienced. It will require a complete paradigm shift in how we view our human history.

I see myself as a fairly open-minded chap but I will admit that it took me well over a year for the penny to drop, and for me to realise that we are actually dealing with the oldest structures ever built by humans on Earth.

The main reason for this is that we have been taught that nothing of significance has ever come from southern Africa. That the powerful civilisations all emerged in Sumeria and Egypt and other places. We are told that until the settlement of the BANTU people from the north, which was supposed to have started sometime in the 12th century AD, this part of the world was filled by hunter gatherers and so-called Bushmen, who did not make any major contributions in technology or civilisation.

Little did we realise that long before Egypt and long before Sumeria, there was a huge ancient city in what the Sumerian tablets call the ABZU (southern Africa). The lost and the first city of ENKI – the Sumerian deity and creator of humankind who was responsible for cloning the species we call Homo sapiens. ABZU is often incorrectly translated as “HELL” by those who grapple with the true meaning of mythology. This is far from the truth because the ABZU was simply known as the land below the equator, where the gold came from. Sumerian tablets tell us clearly that ENKI established a base in the ABZU (southern Africa). This base grew into a very large ancient city occupied by the early human slaves who toiled in the gold mines.

We believe we have now discovered this large city he created. At its peak it was larger than modern-day Johannesburg, covering over 20,000 square kilometres. It consists of well over 100,000 stone ruins still today. These were linked by ancient roads and places of work and worship. ENKI controlled his gold mining operations from here and the fortress of Great Zimbabwe was his headquarters. The evidence of gold mining is everywhere in this part of the world and not only do historic records point to this as being the first place that gold was extracted by humans, new scientific research is there to support it.

Our research has shown that the ancient ruins of South Africa and Zimbabwe go back to around 260,000 years the very first appearance of humans on Earth. I will take you on a journey of discovery as we experienced it over the past 2 years, since late 2007.
