Doggerland, a huge area of dry land that stretched from Scotland to Denmark was slowly submerged by water between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC. Divers from oil companies have found remains of a 'drowned world' with a population of tens of thousands - which might once have been the 'real heartland' of Europe.

Enormous megaliths discovered in Siberia Click here to view the original image of 610x400px. By April HollowayHave enormous megaliths been discovered in Southern Siberia, or are they a rare product of nature?A series of incredible photographs have been released by Dr Valery Uvarov, Head of the Department of Palaeoscience, Palaeotechnology, and UFO Research of the National Security Academy of Russia, following an expedition to the mountains of Gornaya Shoria in Southern Siberia. Some of the stones display clear edges and angles. The temple complex of Raqchi | notesfromcamelidcountry Having been in Peru for a couple of weeks and spending most of our time amongst ancient Inca ruins I feel like this blog has gotten a bit too archaeological. However, on our way from Cusco to Puno we stopped off at a quite different but equally wonderful set of Inca ruins in Raqchi. I guess that is the thing about the Incas, they constructed an amazing array of towns, forts and ceremonial centres in little more than a century of empire building and they are everywhere you go in Peru. Set amidst beautiful countryside and surrounded by imposing mountains on a clear, crisp morning Raqchi is an impressive and moving sight, and one that could be easily overlooked as you speed past the modern-day village on the road between Cusco and Puno. Temple complex at Raqchi, Peru Raqchi was a major religious centre and home to a temple complex and palace that housed the great and the good of the Inca world.

The Valley of the Khans, Mongolia About the Project While diving deep into ancient mysteries of the unknown and forging through some of the most unexplored regions of central Asia, the Valley of the Khans Project continues to search for clues that can unlock one of the greatest secrets of modern history. Based out of the Center for Interdisciplinary Science in Art, Architecture, and Archaeology at the University of California, San Diego, Dr. Albert Yu-Min Lin has utilized the most advanced technologies in remote sensing to approach an 800-year-old mystery and discover the truth behind the life, death, and burial of the most influential conqueror of all time. Genghis Khan (Chingghis Khaan) remains to this day the most accomplished man to have walked the Earth. It is known now that one in every 200 men on the planet today is related to Genghis Khan.
Doggerland – Mapping a lost world So you think climate change is new? So you think the flooding of landmass by the oceans is a new? So you must have not heard of the times when people walked from London to Amsterdam. Doggerland is the name of a vast plain that joined Britain to Europe for nearly 12,000 years, until sea levels began rising dramatically after the last Ice Age.Taking its name from a prominent shipping hazard—Dogger Bank—this immense landbridge vanished beneath the North Sea around 6000 B.C. Like all landbridges, Doggerland seems to have been a pretty busy thoroughfare for ancient hunters and gatherers.But archaeologists hardly gave it a thought until 2002, when a small group of British researchers laid hands on seismic survey data collected by the petroleum industry in the North Sea. It is thought that the sea level rose no faster than about one or two meters per century, and that the land would have disappeared in a series of punctuated inundations. Read the Nature article on the mapping of Doggerland.
Searching for Doggerland When signs of a lost world at the bottom of the North Sea first began to appear, no one wanted to believe them. The evidence started to surface a century and a half ago, when fishermen along the Dutch coast widely adopted a technique called beam trawling. They dragged weighted nets across the seafloor and hoisted them up full of sole, plaice, and other bottom fish. But sometimes an enormous tusk would spill out and clatter onto the deck, or the remains of an aurochs, woolly rhino, or other extinct beast. The fishermen were disturbed by these hints that things were not always as they are. What they could not explain, they threw back into the sea. Generations later a resourceful amateur paleontologist named Dick Mol persuaded the fishermen to bring him the bones and note the coordinates of where they had found them. The story of that vanished land begins with the waning of the ice. First, there are the treasures brought up in the fishermen’s nets.
Swedish divers unearth a 'Stone Age Atlantis': 11,000-year-old ancient settlement discovered under the Baltic Sea Divers found a harpoon, tools, horns and the bones of ancient cattle The bones belonged to the animal auroch last seen in the early 1600sArchaeologists believe these relics date back to the Stone AgeIt is said to be the oldest settlement in the area - dubbed Sweden’s 'Atlantis' By Victoria Woollaston Published: 16:06 GMT, 27 January 2014 | Updated: 17:16 GMT, 27 January 2014 Divers in Sweden have discovered a rare collection of Stone Age artefacts buried deep beneath the Baltic Sea. Archaeologists believe the relics were left by Swedish nomads 11,000 years ago and the discovery may be evidence of one of the oldest settlements ever found in the Nordic region. Some of the relics are so well preserved, reports have dubbed the find 'Sweden’s Atlantis' and suggested the settlement may have been swallowed whole by the sea in the same way as the mythical island in the Atlantic Ocean. Divers in Sweden have discovered a rare collection of Stone Age artefacts buried beneath the Baltic Sea, pictured.
Dr. Robert Schoch and Alternative Human History | Earth's International Research Society E.I.R.S. has teamed up with Geologist and University Professor Dr. Robert Schoch in our research efforts of Alternative World History. Our true human history is slowly coming to discovery through the extensive researches of geologists and geophysicists like Robert Schoch. Evidence points to civilizations existing thousands of years beyond what our school books say they do. Here, together with E.I.R.S., Dr. Schoch explains a very important message we both would like to share about what his 20+ years of research has discovered and why it is so important for us to know today.

Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni, Malta Prehistoric North Sea 'Atlantis' hit by 5m tsunami 30 April 2014Last updated at 20:28 ET By Paul Rincon Science editor, BBC News website A prehistoric "Atlantis" in the North Sea may have been abandoned after being hit by a 5m tsunami 8,200 years ago. The wave was generated by a catastrophic subsea landslide off the coast of Norway. Analysis suggests the tsunami over-ran Doggerland, a low-lying landmass that has since vanished beneath the waves. "It was abandoned by Mesolithic tribes about 8,000 years ago, which is when the Storegga slide happened," said Dr Jon Hill from Imperial College London.

The Bucegi mountain secrets - Hidden From Humanity. Ancient tunnels reveal our true history This page contains excerpts of the discovery plus two years of my research finding confirmations throughout history... In the summer of 2003, in an unexplored area of the Bucegi mountains in Romania, an epochal discovery was found that would completely change the destiny of mankind. Section "I" contains excerpts from the book. Section "II" onwards is my own research regarding this discovery. I apologise in advance for such a lengthy page but some things cannot be explained in a few sentences. To prevent this page from being five times longer I have only covered the absolute basics for each section of my own research but anyone who wishes to discuss this further can click here contact me. Sections on this page I. There are 4 primary tunnels and further sub tunnels that lead to deep underground places which you would have heard of. What happened in Romania Ground-penetrating radar The satellite scan of the mountain revealed two major energetic blocks. A similar structure in Iraq “Exactly!” 1.
