Hatussa Turkey: Evidence Of Lost Ancient High Technology At Work
For a long time it was rumored that there were four great civilizations in ancient times: Egypt, Assyria, Mesopotamia and another which remained unidentified until relatively recently. The re-discovery of the city of Hattusa has led to confirmation that they were the fourth, great civilization of ancient times.
However, it was the 'Hatti' not the Hittites that first built Hattusa, existing in their own right as a superpower until the Hittite invasion in the mid eighteenth century BC. And, the Hittite Empire is mentioned over and over in the Bible as one of the most powerful empires in ancient times and are even credited with being the original founders of Jerusalem.
Of particular interest to me are the large number of perfectly circular drill holes cut deep into the rock as if by means of some tube drill capable of drilling in a stone as hard as granite. There is no conclusive explanation as to the real purpose of these holes and there are hundreds of them found in rocks randomly around the site and they are in some cases so closely fitted together as to almost entirely cover the surface.
Holes such as these are numerous in Egypt, especially at sites such as Abu Sir and Abu Ghurob near Giza as well as Karnak. Clearly not of recent manufacture, such holes are largely ignored by most academics because they hint of technologies that could not have existed during dynastic times...and yet they exist in profusion.
As well as drill holes, the Russian team of http://www.lah.ru/ who graciously let me use the photos in this blog found evidence of the ancient use of saws capable of cutting hard stone, as seen above.
The even spacing of the cuts indicate that the saw in question was not powered with human muscle, but by a controlled technology. Such machines are of relatively recent invention, and again we see numerous examples of this stone sawing in hard materials like basalt and granite, largely ignored by academics because it does not fit their paradigm.
The LAH team found numerous examples of sawing technology at Hatussa, including what would appear to be a circular saw, pictured above. Turkey in general has not been explored thoroughly for signs of lost ancient high technology except for the great work of LAH. We will being exploring this amazing country in 2016.
Come and explore Egypt with us March 8 to 21, 2015 and see the obvious evidence of Lost Ancient High Technology for yourself. Full itinerary HERE. As well, after the main tour we will be exploring Baalbek in Lebanon; see details HERE.
Or join us for the first ever tour focusing on the Elongated Skulls of Peru and Bolivia in May 2015, with Machu Pic'chu of course being a highlight. Full itinerary HERE.
And there is also our tour in June 2015 with Hugh Newman and Andrew Collins, see the full details HERE.
I am the author of 15 books about ancient mysteries, all available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Also called the Hill of the Muses, Filopappou Hill, along with the Hills of the Pnyx and Nymphs, was, according to Plutarch, where Theseus and the Amazons did battle in the very distant past, long before the age of classical Greece. Inhabited from prehistoric times to the post-Byzantine era, today the pine clad slopes are a relaxing place for a stroll.
In classical times, it is said that Socrates was imprisoned in one of the rooms seen above, cut deep i... continue reading
One of the least understood ancient megalithic sites on the planet is that of Baalbek in Lebanon, and that is why we will be visiting here in late March 2015 with the Khemit School of Egypt. You can join us HERE. The above photo shows you that the core masonry on the left and right is superior to that above, and clearly older.
Long before the Romans conquered the site and built their enormous temple of Jupiter, long even before the Phoenicians constructe... continue reading
In the Phrygian Valley of Turkey there are very strange so called “cart tracks” carved into the bedrock, here documented by our Russian friends at the Laboratory Of Alternative History. They are somewhat similar to those found on the island of Malta, where similar tracks lead to, and disappear into the ocean, rising up on a nearby island.
As can be seen in the above photo, these carved lines can be seen from satellite images, and are truly ... continue reading
Much has been written about the enigmatic site in Lebanon called Baalbek; one of the most controversial of ancient places on the planet. Recently, our Russian friends at the Laboratory Of Alternative History http://lah.ru made a study of the quarry from which the megalithic stones were cut. All of these are their photos; with thanks and deep gratitude.
Rather than those that simply speculate the weights of the enormous stones in the quarry, LAH actually ... continue reading
Tenochtitlan, located on an island near the western shore of Lake Texcoco in central Mexico, was the capital city and religious center of the Aztec civilization. The traditional founding date of the city was 1345 AD and it remained the most important Aztec center until its destruction at the hands of the conquering Spanish led by Hernán Cortés in 1521 AD.
In Aztec mythology the founders of the city migrated from the legendary Aztlán cave in the northwe... continue reading
Towards the end of the Classic period (after the decline of the great city of Teotihuacan around 700 AD), various waves of indigenous invaders migrated from the north into Mesoamerica. Of these numerous groups, the most important were the Toltec people. Said to have come from deserts to the north, their actual origins remain obscure.
The city of Tollan, (now called Tula) the legendary Toltec capital, is mentioned in a number of Post-Conquest sources, in... continue reading
El Tajín, Prehispanic City is a site with great significance for Mesoamerican archaeology because it is one of the best preserved and most thoroughly excavated examples of a pre-Hispanic town from the Epiclassic and early Post Classic period, the time between the fall of Teotihuacan and the rise of the Aztec empire.
It was previously thought that occupation of the El Tajín pre-Hispanic settlement took place in three phases, between 100 B.C. and 1200 A.D... continue reading
In order to expand our on site knowledge of ancient places, and to offer future tours beyond Peru, Bolivia and Egypt we will be visiting Mexico in early 2015. Prior to our plans for the Mexico trip, I had in fact never heard of this site…Xochicalco…
The ancient ruined city of Xochicalco is a stunning archaeological site located in the Mexican state of Morelos not too far from Mexico City. The site was inhabited roughly between 200 and 900 A... continue reading
In order to expand our personal knowledge base of selected ancient places, and to offer future tours beyond Peru, Bolivia and Egypt, we will be heading to Mexico in early 2015 to explore Aztec, Olmec and Toltec sites, such as Cholula.
Cholula, just outside the city of Puebla, is the site of the massive Cholula “pyramid” (The Great Pyramid of Cholula) believed by some to be the largest pyramidal structure ever created. By strict definition, ... continue reading
Baalbek is the name of an archaeological site in Lebanon. In Roman times it was known as Heliopolis or City of the Sun. An example of how ancient the site is can be found in that its holiest area (in pagan times) was the Temple of Baal-Jupiter; a hybrid between the ancient Canaanite god Baal (lord) and the Roman Jupiter.
Moreover, this temple was built on a “tel” or ruin mound, indicating a place that had long been held sacred, though what had caused th... continue reading
Though found all over the world, and most prevalent about 2000 years ago, the countries of Peru and Bolivia feature some of the most fascinating elongated skulls which conventional archaeology does not properly address. The one above is from the southern shore of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia.
The infant skull shown above appears to have been a relatively newborn, yet features a distinctly elongated skull. Most academics believe that cranial deformation, whic... continue reading
