Top 10 Ancient Civilizations With Advanced Technology

Like a real life Indiana Jones, maverick archeologist David Hatcher Childress has taken many incredible journeys to some of the oldest and most remote spots on earth. Writing prolifically of lost cities and ancient civilizations, he has produced no less than six lengthy books (the Lost Cities series) chronicling the dimly remembered glories of obscure locales from the Gobi desert to Puma Punku in Bolivia, from Mohenjo Daro to Ba'albek. We caught up with him shortly before taking off for New Guinea on yet another archeological expedition and asked him if he would be willing to write an exclusive for Atlantis Rising on the Top 10 Ancient Civilizations with Advanced Technology. He agreed to dig through his archives and give us a story. According to various esoteric sources, the first civilization arose 78,000 years ago on the giant continent known as Mu or Lemuria and lasted for an astonishing 52,000 years. Supposedly, there was one language and one government. 6. Related:  Mysteries/History/DiscoveriesAncient History

Strange Artifacts, Baghdad Battery This experiment proved that electric batteries were used some 1,800 years before their modern invention by Alessandro Volta in 1799. It also seems that the use of similar batteries can be safely placed into ancient Egypt, where several objects with traces of electroplated precious metals have been found at different locations. There are several anomalous finds from other regions, which suggests use of electricity on a grander scale. The Riddle of "Baghdad's batteries" Arran Frood investigates what could have been the very first batteries and how these important archaeological and technological artefacts are now at risk from the impending war in Iraq. I don't think anyone can say for sure what they were used for, but they may have been batteries because they do work Dr Marjorie Senechal War can destroy more than a people, an army or a leader.

Amazing Metropolis Discovered in Africa is 200,000 years old! By Dan Eden for viewzone. They have always been there. People noticed them before. Something amazing has been discovered in an area of South Africa, about 150 miles inland, west of the port of Maputo. The image [top of page] is a close-up view of just a few hundred meters of the landscape taken from google-earth. This changed when researcher and author, Michael Tellinger, teamed up with Johan Heine, a local fireman and pilot who had been looking at these ruins from his years flying over the region. "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. Where it was found The area is significant for one striking thing -- gold. Did gold play some role in the dense population that once lived here? The individual ruins [see below] mostly consist of stone circles. How the Site was dated NEXT: The Dating of the Site Viewzone || Comments?

Smelted In Space? Ancient Iron Beads Linked To Meteorite : The Two-Way hide captionThe metal in an Egyptian iron bead dating from around 3,300 BC has been found to have originated from space, according to analysis. Here, the bead is seen in (clockwise from top left) a photograph, a CT cross-section view, a model of nickel oxides, and a model in which blue areas represent the rich presence of nickel inside the bead. The Open University/University of Manchester The metal in an Egyptian iron bead dating from around 3,300 BC has been found to have originated from space, according to analysis. Since it was found in 1911, an Egyptian iron bead has sparked wonder and debate over how it was produced — made around 3,300 BC, it predates the region's first known iron smelting by thousands of years. "Tube-shaped beads excavated from grave pits at the prehistoric Gerzeh cemetery, approximately 3300 BCE, represent the earliest known use of iron in Egypt," the scientists write in the May 20 issue of Meteoritics and Planetary Science.

US and British Government Knew – Down to the Day – of Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor … And Let It Happen to Justify US Entry Into WWII We Knew … Preface: We don’t contest that World War II was – in many ways – a “good war”. The Nazis, imperial Japanese and fascist Italians were nasty folks trying to take over the world, who brutalized millions within their own borders and in the nations they occupied. But a full and honest account of World War II shows that some big American banks funded the Nazis. And – as shown below – we probably knew about the coming Pearl Harbor attack, but let it happen to justify America’s entry into World War II. The White House apparently had – a year before Pearl Harbor – launched an 8-point plan to provoke Japan into war against the U.S. Moreover, Honolulu newspapers warned of a possible attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor: And see this short essay by a highly-praised historian summarizing some of the key points.

Great Pyramid - Secret Tunnels of Giza Plateau Secret Tunnels of the Giza Plateau Boris Said Interviewed By Kenneth and Dee Burke Boris Said is the Emmy award-winning writer and producer of the NBC-TV feature documentary, "The Mystery of the Sphinx", hosted by Charlton Heston, which focused on the research of John Anthony West, alleging that the "water weathering" on the Sphinx indicates that it is much older than previously believed. Boris also produced the documentary "Secret Chamber", about the opening of the room under the Sphinx which was located during the "Mystery of the Sphinx", research. Before becoming a well-known film documentarian, Boris was a champion auto racer and the driver of the U.S. LE: Our readership will be interested in the kind of presentation of your material that you are planning to give at the February Global Sciences Congress in Florida. What developed out of that was a conspiracy theory, which my good friend Richard Hoagland added to, with this discovery of an allegedly illicit tunnel in the Pyramid.

Two Stone Age 9,500-Year-Old Artifacts Unearthed MessageToEagle.com - Archaeologists have unearthed two Stone Age figurines – c. 9,500 year old – in Tel Motza located between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
