Genetic Research on the Ancient Basques Yields Unexpected Results - Cayce's Atlantean History is Viable from EdgarCayce Website Spanish version The Cayce readings relate that a migration of Atlanteans fled the final destruction of their last remaining island just prior to 10,000 B.C. Cayce specifically stated that many of these survivors went to North America, Egypt, and the Pyrenees Mountains while a few went to the area of the Gobi. Signs of Atlantis found in southern Spain: scientists - Health Scientists say they may have discovered the lost city of Atlantis buried deep under the marshlands of southern Spain. The legendary city is believed to have been "swallowed up by the sea," as the Greek philosopher Plato so famously put it 2,400 years ago. He wrote of a great city destroyed by floodwaters following an earthquake deep under the sea — an image that resonates at a time when Japan is struggling to recover from a devastating earthquake and tsunami off its northeast coast. A National Geographic television special that aired on Sunday details the work of American, Canadian and Spanish scientists as they attempt to prove Atlantis existed by following up on space satellite images showing unusual features in an area just north of Cadiz. The area is near the Straits of Gibraltar — widely thought to be the "Pillars of Hercules" Plato mentioned in his description of the location of Atlantis. The team is led by archaeologist Richard Freund of the University of Hartford in Connecticut.

Top 10 Civilizations That Mysteriously Disappeared Throughout our history, most civilizations have either met a slow demise or were wiped out by natural disasters or invasion. But there are a few societies whose disappearance has scholars truly stumped: 10. The Olmec One of the first Mesoamerican societies, the Olmec inhabited the tropical lowlands of south-central Mexico.

Lost ancient civilisation's ruins lie beneath Gulf, says boffin High performance access to file storage Refugees from a lost civilisation whose ruins and relics lie submerged on the seabed deep beneath the Persian Gulf may have founded ancient, advanced Middle Eastern societies thousands of years ago in the time before the Pharaohs. According to Jeffrey Rose, a Birmingham uni archaeologist, recent excavations and discoveries indicate that a large number of substantial and relatively sophisticated settlements sprang up around the shores of the Persian Gulf quite suddenly perhaps 7,500 years ago. “Where before there had been but a handful of scattered hunting camps, suddenly, over 60 new archaeological sites appear virtually overnight,” says Rose.

Has Joseph’s Tomb Been Found in Egypt? by Thomas S. McCall, Th.D. Dr. Calendar House: Chapter 4 - Forms of Time Forms of Time Nilsson’s 1920 Primitive Time-Reckoning detailed the long human process of arriving at the concept of a year: it may have first concerned only a period from sowing to harvest, and then measured from “a season to its recurrence”: a challenge amid fluctuations that was aided by the daily utility of the moon, “the first chronometer” (354, 359, 148). Cohen’s 1993 study of ancient Near Eastern “cultic calendars” found their origins also in seasons and lunar cycles beginning with a First Crescent (3-4). Crete lives a round of three distinct and reliable seasons: After 90-95 days of cool rainy Winter, about 140 days of Spring lead into Summer and the grain harvest; and about 130 days from thence bring Winter again. MacGillivray’s 2008 study of The Decans confirms a Cretan year of three seasons, each (with their overlaps) about 4 moons/months in duration.

Dogon Tribe - Nommo Dogon The Dogon are an ethnic group located mainly in the administrative districts of Bandiagara and Douentza in Mali, West Africa. This area is composed of three distinct topographical regions: the plain, the cliffs, and the plateau. Within these regions the Dogon population of about 300,000 is most heavily concentrated along a 200 kilometer (125 mile) stretch of escarpment called the Cliffs of Bandiagara. These sandstone cliffs run from southwest to northeast, roughly parallel to the Niger River, and attain heights up to 600 meters (2000 feet). The cliffs provide a spectacular physical setting for Dogon villages built on the sides of the escarpment.

Robot finds 3 rooms under Feathered Serpent temple A robot named Tláloc II-TC, equipped with an infrared camera and laser scanner, has discovered three new chambers underneath the Temple of the Feathered Serpent pyramid in the Mesoamerican metropolis of Teotihuacan. He was sent down a tunnel 390 feet long that was discovered 50 feet below the surface of the temple in 2003. The tunnel had been filled with debris by the ancient Teotihuacans to block access, an effective technique since despite centuries of looting and archaeological excavations nobody had managed to breach it. It’s been a decade since the subterranean conduit was discovered and five years since excavations began, and archaeologists have only able to get a glimpse of what’s on the other side in the past few months. They first discovered two side rooms dubbed the North Chamber and the South Chamber 236 and 242 feet respectively from the entrance. The human archaeologists couldn’t get any further than that, so they deployed Tláloc II-TC to travel another 65 feet.

White Europeans 'only evolved 5,500 years ago after food habits changed' By Daily Mail Reporter Updated: 13:58 GMT, 31 August 2009 People in England may have only developed pale skin within the last 5,500 years, according to new research. Scientists believe that a sudden change in the diet around that time from hunter-gathering to farming may have led to a dramatic change in skin tone to make up for a lack of vitamin D. Farmed food is lacking in vitamin D and while humans can produce it when exposed to the ultraviolet light in sunlight darker skin is far less efficient at it. People with pale skin may be descended from Europeans who dramatically changed their diets after switching from hunter-gathering to farming Scientists at the University of Oslo believe this change in diet may have led to our dark-skinned ancestors evolving paler skin to overcome this problem.
