Megaliths and Evidence : Stones but no Evidence of Sedentary Villages
Here is a typical example of WHY the mainstream has not moved forward on megalithic research. They are bogged down in their own unproven theories which are not supported by any evidence.
Catherine Perles and Gerard Monthel in their book:
The Early Neolithic in Greece: The first farming communities in Europe, Cambridge University Press, 2001,
write at Footnote 1, page 2
about theories in archaeology which do not conform to what has actually been found to be true:
"A more current example is provided by the absence of villages or habitations in Western European megalithic areas. After a century of fieldwork, many authors still argue that the megaliths' builders were necessarily sedentary and that their villages will eventually be found."
Read that carefully. What it means is that mainstream archaeology is sticking to its ridiculous theory that the megaliths were local "cult" objects, sort of like a sundial in every backyard lawn, which locals erected to predominantly view the Sun and Moon in their area. NOTHING supports this view. It is a fiction, a theory in the imaginations of mainstream archaeologists which has absolutely no support in the facts.
Rather, as Perles and Monthel correctly note, it is really high time to look for explanations which fit what the facts tell us. The facts tell us that the megaliths were put up by some kind of a MOBILE group which was NOT sedentary to the megalithic locations.
Here again, my theory that this was a worldwide megalithic survey of the Earth by astronomy by a mobile group of persons specially sent out on this task - again - DOES fit the facts.
Mount Sainai Har Karkom Mount Gerizim Ancient Survey of Egypt
Peter Tompkins in Secrets of the Great Pyramid, Galahad Books, N.Y., 1971, writes: "According to Hebrew historians the original Jewish center of worship was not Jerusalem, but Mount Gerizim, a strictly geodetic point 4° [4 degrees] east of the main axis of Egypt. It was only moved to Jerusalem after 980 B.C.
Mount Gerizim = Har Karkom in the Sinai part of ISRAEL
Our discovery is that this clearly means
that Mount Gerizim was Har Karkom (Geri=Kar, Zim=Kom).
As found at Ancient Sources:
"ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THE ORIGINAL GREEK:
Eusebius, Onomasticon 64:16-17 (ca. 295 A.D.); Jerome 65:16-17 (ca. 390 A.D.)
"Gerizim (Deut 11:29), is the mountain on which stood those who recited the blessings [Jerome mistakenly writes: the curses], near Mount Gebal of which we spoke above."
Har Karkom in ISRAEL = Mount Sinai
We refer here particularly now to a great pioneer book by
Professor Emmanuel Anati
The Riddle of Mount Sinai:
Archaeological Discoveries at Har Karkom
Edizioni del Centro, Studi Camuni
(a series of monographs on art, archaeology and history).
The book can be obtained from:
Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici
25044 Capo di Ponte (BS) Italy
Tel. (0039) 364 42091 - Fax (0039) 364 42572
Anati - in our opinion correctly, it is HIS discovery -
places the Biblical Mount Sinai at Har Karkom
in the NORTH of the Sinai Peninsula and not SOUTH
(as the mainstream currently and erroneously believes).
Har Karkom is full of megaliths and rock drawings. Har Karkom is just south of the major ancient trails across Sinai, whereas the South of Mount Sinai would have been next to impossible in ancient times for a large number of people to reach on foot, as Exodus claims.
ANCIENT NEOLITHIC SURVEY OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST including EGYPT
This knowledge gives us the key to the ancient Neolithic survey of this region and shows us clearly that the present location of Mount Gerizim and Mount Gebal as set by mainstream scholars is totally false, being set simply based on guesswork at the Shomron Valley.
But, in fact, Har Kar-kom = Geri-zim.
This was the ancient Hebrew holy place on Sinai.
MOUNT GEBAL = JABAL YU ALLIQ in the Sinai part of EGYPT
The "neighboring" Mount Gebal - as we shall show below - is Jabal Yu Alliq (highest peak in North Sinai) in spite of the fact that neighboring Jabal 'Urayfan Nxqah is on the same horizontal survey line as Har Karkom and Petra and might be thought to be the neighboring Gebal, which is not so. Jabal 'Urayfan Nxqah and Petra are even equidistant from Har Karkom at a latitude of about 30°20' but this relates to a later era.
QUSAYR AD DAFFAH, LIBYA
A horizontal line extends to the West to Jabal Yu Alliq in Sinai and Qusayr ad-Daffah (today deserted ruins) in Libya, just on the edge of the modern border to Egypt. Qasr in Arabic means "castle, fortification". Qusayr ad-Daffah marked the ancient Neolithic Western border to Libya.
TOBRUK, LIBYA - AGOZA, CHAD - MEROE, SUDAN
From Qusayr ad-Daffah there is then an ancient survey line northward to Tobruk and Bi'r al-Uzam and southward to Agoza (today deserted ruins), just south of the current four-country border corner of Egypt, Libya, Chad and the Sudan. Agoza was the actual ancient border point.
The survey line to the East from Tobruk
runs at an angle of 110° to Jabal Yu Alliq and Har Karkom.
The survey line to the East from Agoza
runs at an angle of 110° to Meroe.
Two lines run to the North from Meroe,
one line perpendicularly up to Jabal Yu Alliq
(forming a surveyor's parallelogram with Tobruk, Agoza, and Meroe)
and the other line running North to Har Karkom.
THE ANCIENT SURVEYOR'S ARK (ARC)
The distance between Jabal Yu Alliq and Har Karkom represent
"the arc" of the distance "lost" due to the curvature of the Earth.
Using the map website WayHoo we can find the latitudes and longitudes of these locations with geographic positioning results that persuasively confirm the above survey analysis. Agoza is at 23.75°E 18.5°N, Meroe is at 33.75°E 17°N, i.e. EXACTLY 10 degrees longitude apart, while Qusayr ad Daffah is at 24°E 30.33°N, Tobruk at 24°E 32°N, Jabal Yu Alliq at 33.5°E 30°N and Har Karkom at 34.75°E 30°N.
The actual positional data are:
Agoza, Chad 18.50000 N, 23.75000 E
Meroe, Sudan 16.93833 N, 33.74722 E
Qusayr ad Daffah, Libya 30.33333 N, 23.90000 E
Tobruk, Libya 32.06667 N, 24.01667 E
Jabal Yu 'alliq, Egypt 30.37528 N, 33.50500 E
Har Karkom, Israel 30.28750 N, 34.74250 E
MEASURE OF THE CIRCUMFERENCE OF THE EARTH
The longitudinal difference of this "The Arc" (more on "The Ark" below) between Har Karkom and Jabal Yu Alliq is about 1.25 degrees which reflects the diminishment in the circumference of the earth for the intended difference in longitude between Har Karkom and Meroe, i.e. about 13.5°. Hence the difference in the circumference of the earth at Har Karkom and Jabal Yu Alliq from its circumference at Meroe for 10 degrees of longitude between Meroe and Agoza is thus 36 x 1.25 = 45 degrees or 1/8 of the circumference of the earth less than at Meroe.
MOUNT GERZIM AND MOUNT GEBAL in BIBLICAL SOURCES
This ancient "Ark" is mentioned in ancient Hebrew sources.
As written at Har Gerizim and Ayval:
"The twin peaks of Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal stand above the Shomron Valley.... [Note by Megaliths.co.uk - that location is the mainstream idea and simply false.]
Six Tribes of the Bnai Yisroel stood by Mount Gerizim and six Tribes stood by Mount Ayval. The Ahron HaKodesh (Holy Ark) was set between the mountains.... [Note by Megaliths.co.uk - In our opinion, that reference is the division of the heavens into twelve spheres. As Andis Kaulins has discovered from the names and positions of the Egyptian Nomes, the Holy Ark - symbolized by the dog Anubis - was placed at the Vernal (Spring) Equinox ca. 3117 BC to the right of the stars of Orion. In Indo-European, e.g. SUNIS, SUNI (pl.) means dog whence the stellar origin of the name of the peninsula, SINAI. The derived name Anubis is Indo-European e.g. Latvian Navis "death" which the dog also symbolized. Hence, in the megalithic survey system of the ancient Middle East, if Sinai represented the stars to the right of Orion at the Spring Equinox ca. 3117 BC, then, in fact, Egypt represented Orion, and this would confirm the hypothesis of Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert in the Orion Mystery, that the Giza Pyramids represent Orion, i.e. the pyramids are placed on an ancient Neolithic location.
Moshe Rabbaynu commanded the Bnai Yisroel that as soon as they crossed the Yarden (Jordan) River [Note by Megaliths.co.uk - this was actually the Wadi el Jayb, i.e. the "River Jordan" at the other end of the Dead Sea. Of course, this occurred much later than the pyramids, at the time of Moses, which as we have written elsewhere, was the 13th Pharaonic dynasty and not the chronology currently assigned to Exodus.] they were to take twelve stones from the river bed and build a Mizbayach on top of Mount Ayval. They were to plaster over the twelve stones and carve into the plaster the words of the Torah in all seventy languages. (Deut. 27:1-26)

At Loot | Along the Antiquities Trail: An Illicit Journey Out of Egypt, Only a Few Questions Asked a February 23, 2004 article by BARRY MEIER and MARTIN GOTTLIEB explores the world of illicit antiquities traffic. It is a great read, providing deep insight into this age-old international trade in art and artifacts. It really is quite like Indiana Jones.

Panama Megalith Deciphered
As already noted in the previous posting to Archaeopundit, the recently discovered Miami Circle is equally distant - on a straight line - from both the Peterborough Petroglyphs in Canada and the just found gigantic Panama Megalith. It appears that these markers are the major Eastern triangulation points for the ancient (ca. 3000 BC) survey of North America by the megalith builders.
There also appears to be a survey tie to Teotihuacan, as the distance from Teotihuacan to the Miami Circle is the same (ca. 2050 km) as from the Miami Circle to the Peterborough Petroglyphs and from the Miami Circle to the Panama Megalith - we measure this as 2050 km each way using the distance-finding software program Geothek. From Teotihuacan to the Petroglyphs the distance is 3400 km. From Teotihuacan to the Panama Megalith it is 2500 km. This survey of North America was just one part of a larger survey of the world by the megalith builders.
In the book, Stars Stones and Scholars
the Peterborough Petroglyphs in Canada are deciphered as a planisphere marking the center of heaven - as is now clear, this was the North Ecliptic Pole.
Similarly, the Miami Circle is deciphered in that book as a planisphere marking approximately in the region of the star nu-Hydra at the Summer Solstice ca. 3117 BC.
It thus seemed probable that the giant Panama Megalith just found this last week in Panama would fit in with this survey system.
It has in fact been possible for me to decipher the figures and cupmarks on the Panama Megalith, showing that these figures and cupmarks mark the South Ecliptic Pole and thus constitute the "southern geographic survey border" for the survey of North America. South America begins just below this point of the SE end of the Isthmus of Panama.
Since the ancients used the stars to survey the Earth, the figures carved on megaliths mark stars, constellations or asterisms. We find that the head of the lizard-figure on the Panama Megalith marks the top of the group of stars modernly known as Dorado. The head of Dorado points directly to the South Ecliptic Pole.
Also marked on the Panama Megalith appears to be a relief next to it on the left - the shape is marked by heavy moss on the megalith as shown on the photograph of the stone - and we think this could be the human-head-shaped Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), but this must remain speculative until the moss is removed and surface studied. The numerous three-cupped cupmark groups on the Panama Megalith mark the stars around LMC and also further to its right mark the stars of what we today know as the constellation Reticulum.
The decipherment is found as
in file "North America - USA Canada" at the LexiLine Yahoo egroup on the History of Civilization.

Panama Megalith with Rock Art Found
BBC NEWS carries a February 2, 2004 story at Rock discovery causes excitement about a large megalith covered with rock drawings just found in Panama by Julian Chenoweth of Cornwall, England. The megalith is dated to ca. 3000 BC, weighs 30 tons and is ca. 17 feet (5.18 metres) high. The linked page at BBC has a photo of the rock, showing a large lizard, and - as I have found - cup-like marks similar to those found at the site of the Peterborough Petroglyphs in Canada. Other figures are possible, but hard to tell from the photograph.
The archaeologist, Julian Chenoweth of St. Mawes, who works with the Scientific Exploration Society,
is quoted as saying:
"I believe the rock is a ceremonial place or a boundary marker for a tribe's territory."
The presence of this megalithic rock in such a faraway place as Panama fits in with the theory of Andis Kaulins in his book Stars, Stones and Scholars, claiming an ancient survey of the earth by the megalithic peoples ca. 3000 BC, whereby the megaliths in fact served as boundary markers for ancient man and were "sighted in" by astronomy, a record whereof which was inscribed on the stones.
In fact, we can explain why this rock is exactly where it is. This area of Darien, Panama, near the Pacific Coast of Panama toward the far SE side of Panama, near the river Sambu, is the same distance from the Miami Circle in Miami, Florida, as the Miami Circle is from the Peterborough Petroglyphs in Canada - ALL ON THE SAME DIRECT LINE. The Peterborough Petroglyphs are roughly at 44 degrees north, Miami Beach is at ca. 26 degrees north and the Panama Rock is at approximately 8 degrees north - this is a distance of roughly 4000 km using 2000 -2100 km long segments, which fits in with the distances used for survey in North America in 3000 BC, according to Kaulins' book. Additionally the Panama Rock forms a triangulation with the Miami Circle and Teotihuacan, at ca. 20 degrees north. In other words, the Panama Rock is a major cornerstone of the survey of North America ca. 3000 BC by the megalithic peoples.

Faked Japanese Paleolithic Archaeology
An article which we missed some months ago in the The Scotsman refers to the recent story of a Japanese archaeologist who faked top finds of artifacts to make his archaeological reputation.
Much of Japanese paleolithic history will have to be "rewritten" as a result.
The archaeologist was only caught by a hidden camera as he himself "pre-buried" a future find out of a plastic bag in his pocket. This has been going on for 30 years.
"[the archaeologist] entirely fabricated his astonishing finds at 159 of the 178 sites he worked on...."
How could such a thing have happened?
Interesting as an explanation is the quote at the end of the article:
"Young archaeologists do not challenge revered senior scholars," said Hisao Baba, an anthropologist at the National Science Museum. "It is extremely difficult to directly deny others' work because it is taken as a grave personal and professional insult."
We are often very critical about the overall discipline of mainstream archaeology, and frankly, it is often justified.
