The stone of the twelve angles
When you look at the gigantic megalithic constructions that the Inca empire left behind, what immediately catches your eye is the incredible precision with which the stone blocks were positioned, some of which weigh more than 150 tons. How could such a primitive civilization create such precise architectural works? In the southern sierra of Peru, at more than 3400 meters above sea level, lies Cuzco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire. Here it is possible to observe one of the most disconcerting architectural creations of South American archaeology: Calle Hatun Rumiyuq, the street that goes from the Plaza de Armas to the Barrio de San ...

Throne of the Gods: Nemrut Dag
Nemrut Dag - The Mountain of the Gods In the southeast of Turkey, in the middle of the Taurus massif, there is the holy mountain of Kommagene, the 2,150 meter high Nemrud Dag . The King of Commagene, Antiochus I, who died in the 1 st century BC, is buried here. Antiochus had the largest burial mound in the world! In order to build this burial mound on the top of the mountain, around 200,000 cubic meters of rock had to be removed. Without modern technology or dynamite! A 50 m high pyramid made of gravel was created and three terraces with 10-meter-high figures of gods were built at the foot of the pyramid. Each of the figures weighs aroun...

Parts of the Antikythera mechanism
You don't always have to travel around the world to discover the mysterious legacies of our ancestors. Thanks to excellent museums, you can also experience this in Central Europe. A visit to the archaeological museums in Berlin, London and Paris is recommended. I present some exhibits that are associated with paleo-SETI here. The Antikythera mechanism (Greek National Museum, Athens) In 1900 divers recovered objects from at a depth of 30 m from a ship that sank around 70 BC. The ship sank near the island of Antikythera. The divers came across, among other things, a rectangular structure overgrown with shells, lime and corroding metal l...

The underground chamber in Pumapunku
In 2012 it was reported that a team of archaeologists using ground-penetrating radar found an underground chamber at Pumapunku. More then 10 years have passed since then, but many open questions still remains today. Did ancient aliens or ancient humans build Pumapunku? What exactly was the building’s purpose? What did the building look like and how did it end up destroyed? Where did the knowledge and skill to build and carve the blocks come from? It is these questions among many others that archaeologists have not been able to answer regarding the site that leaves us with a huge mystery. At that time, using ground penetrating radar, a tea...

The Kalasasaya temple
Arthur Posnansky's book “ Tiahuanaco, the cradle of American man ” (1945) is the fundamental text for anyone who wants to approach the study of the great Andean archaeological site in a serious and objective way. Posnansky, who was undoubtedly a great scholar of Tiahuanaco , was harshly criticized by the academic establishment (and simultaneously idolized by pseudo-scientific writers), for his famous dating of the foundation of Kalasasaya, dating back to 15,000 BC. This dating, as I described in my article " Archeoastronomy in Tiahuanaco ", it is not currently verifiable as the Austrian archaeologist took it for certain that the Kalas...

The enigma of the Jachaphasa fortress
Following the fall of the Tiahuanaco empire (classical civilization), various independent kingdoms currently called "Aymara kingdoms" arose in the Andean plateau. For example, the Colla kingdom, that of the Lupaca and, among others, that of the Pacajes. Little is known about these kingdoms also because their existence was ephemeral. After the fall of Tiahuanaco (1200 AD), they prospered for about two centuries, until their definitive conquest by the Incas. During my last trip to Bolivia, I learned of the existence of little-known ruins in the area of ​​the village of Calacoto, located about 180 kilometers from La Paz, in the heart of the ...

The lost city of Z
All fans of mysterious or frontier archaeology, have no doubts: "Colonel" Fawcett was the only true Indiana Jones of the 20 th century, the EXPLORER par excellence, the quintessence of ADVENTURE (1). However, this writing is not intended to be a detailed exposition of Fawcett's life, given that there are many books on the subject. Much less does he intend to exasperate his biography with esoteric or mystical interpretations regarding the purpose of his travels. Instead, it is important to clearly frame the essence of his theories - which we have partly made our own - also trying to understand the reason for which this character, now l...

Prester map
The origin of the legend of Prester John originates from a letter that the Byzantine emperor Manuel I Komnenos received in 1165. The sender was: “ John, Christian Sovereign and Lord of Lords ”. The letter described the very rich lands of this monarch located in central Asia. The king said he lived in an immense palace made of gems and gold and said he governed a huge territory extending from Persia to China. For many years the myth of Prester John was associated with the dream of reaching a sumptuous kingdom, where all material pleasures were fulfilled and people lived in opulence. This medieval El Dorado was searched for a long time but ...

Herodotus of Halicarnassus
If we really want to find out at what time the gods (where by gods we mean beings with knowledge superior to that of the time, who were subsequently deified) physically lived on earth we should undertake ambitious archaeological expeditions that are capable of finding objects and buildings that date back to those times. Not having these resources, we will limit ourselves to an analysis of the data at our disposal. Clue I: Herodotus of Halicarnassus and the Egyptians The first piece of this endless mosaic that I feel like presenting you today is the work of Herodotus of Halicarnassus , an ancient Greek historian who lived between 484 BC an...

The 3D model shows a section of the stone wall discovered at the bottom of the Bay of Mecklenburg. I
At the bottom of the Baltic Sea are the remains of what was probably the oldest European megastructure , built about 10 thousand years ago. Made up of gigantic stones and one kilometer long, it is located off the coast of Germany, 21 meters deep in the Gulf of Mecklenburg. The seabed was accessible terrain until the end of the last Ice Age. It was only with global warming that the Baltic Sea area was flooded and was then under water around 8,500 years ago. In the Baltic Sea region, the wall is the first known structure of Ice Age hunters and gatherers and possibly the oldest colossal monument in Europe. The discovery, published in the jou...
