In cultures all over the world, there are ancient stories about beautiful, prosperous cities that became submerged in the ocean and were never seen again. The most famous of these is the story of Atlantis, but there are many others. So could it be possible that some of these cities actually exist? In recent years, modern technology has allowed humanity to investigate the ocean floor like never before. As we have done so, we have made some incredible discoveries. You are about to see some amazing mysterious structures that have been found on the bottom of the ocean floor all over the world. Could these mysterious structures actually be evidence of very advanced ancient civilizations? As we learn about these ancient civilizations, will this knowledge turn the conventional version of human history that we all learned in school upside down?
We live at a time when mind blowing discoveries are being made at a pace never seen before. Just last month, I wrote about the megalithic ruins that have just been discovered in Russia that contain the largest blocks of stone ever found (even bigger than Baalbek).
Nobody can explain where those stones came from, who lived there, or how ancient humans could cut and move such massive blocks.
Well, similar things could be said about many of these mysterious structures on the bottom of the ocean floor…
The Ancient Underwater City Of Yonaguni-Jima, Japan
For as long as anyone can remember, residents of Okinawa have passed on stories of a vast underwater city to their children. Most considered those stories to simply be myths. But after what happened in 1986, that all changed…
In 1986, a diver near the island of Yonaguni Jima, off the southern tip of Japan (around Okinawa) came across some strange structures about 25 metres below sea level.
They appeared to be stepped structures with terraces and ramps.
One of the largest pyramid structures is 600 feet wide and 90 feet high –with five separate levels of stone blocks with what appears to be road surrounding the structure.
Tool marks and carvings have been discovered upon the stones (and documented) which indicate that they have were constructed rather than being natural stone structures.
Masaaki Kimura, a marine geologist from Japan’s Ryukyus University, Japan has been studying and mapping the site for over 15 years and believes that the site is over five thousand years old – but was sunk during an earthquake two thousand years ago.
I have posted a YouTube video about these incredible ruins below. As you can see, they truly are remarkable…
Dwarka – Off The Coast Of India
An incredible underwater city can be found just off the coast of India as well. It is known as “Dwarka”, and at the longest point it stretches for five miles. Once again, this city provides evidence of a highly advanced civilization in the ancient world…
The Bay of Cambay was discovered by marine scientists in early 2002. The city is located 120 feet underwater in the Gulf of Cambay off the western coast of India. The city is five miles long and two miles wide, carbon dating estimates the site to be a whopping 9,500 years old, and, more amazingly, architectural and human remains are still intact. The discovery astounded scientists because it predates all other finds in the area by 5,000 years, suggesting a much longer history of the civilization than was first assumed. Marine scientists used sonar images and sum-bottom profiling to locate the lost ruins and it is believed the area was submerged when the ice caps melted in the last Ice Age. The Indian nationals have dubbed the find ‘Dwarka’ (The Golden City) in honor of ancient submerged city said to belong to Hindu god, Krishna.
In the YouTube video posted below, you can learn much more about Dwarka…
Cuban Underwater City
In 2001, the BBC reported on the discovery of a “lost city” in Cuban waters…
A team of explorers working off the western coast of Cuba say they have discovered what they think are the ruins of a submerged city built thousands of years ago.
Researchers from a Canadian company used sophisticated sonar equipment to find and film stone structures more than 2,000 feet (650 metres) below the sea’s surface.
Some have speculated that this could be the location of the mythical city of Atlantis, but since 2001 follow up work has been slow. The following is what Wikipedia has to say about this “lost city”…
Cuban underwater city refers to a site thought by some to be a submerged granite complex structures off the coast of the Guanahacabibes peninsula in the Pinar del Río Province of Cuba.
Sonar images interpreted as being symmetrical and geometric stone structures resembling an urban complex were first recorded in early 2001 covering an area of 2 square kilometres (200 ha) at depths of between 600 metres (2,000 ft) and 750 metres (2,460 ft). The discovery was reported by Pauline Zalitzki, a marine engineer, and her husband Paul Weinzweig, owners of a Canadian company called Advanced Digital Communications, working on an exploration and survey mission in conjunction with the Cuban government. The team returned to the site a second time with an underwater video robot that filmed sonar images interpreted as various pyramids and circular structures made out of massive, smooth blocks of stone that resembled hewn granite. Zalitzki said “It’s a really wonderful structure which really looks like it could have been a large urban centre, However, it would be totally irresponsible to say what it was before we have evidence.”
Did you know that there are ancient ruins under Lake Huron?
They have just been discovered. According to USA Today, “an elaborate network of hunting blinds and animal-herding structures” has been found that is potentially thousands of years old…
Deep below the surface of Lake Huron, scuba-diving researchers have found an elaborate network of hunting blinds and animal-herding structures dating back roughly 9,000 years.
Lake levels of the day were some 250 feet lower, exposing a narrow bridge of land running from one side of Huron to the other. Prehistoric people evidently thought this isthmus was a perfect place to intercept caribou on their seasonal migrations. The hunting site they built, now inundated, opens a window onto prehistoric America and provides valuable evidence in a region where such artifacts are practically non-existent.
Underwater City Near Saipan
Thanks to Google Earth, ordinary people like you and I are able to examine our planet like never before. For example, one gentleman named Scott Waring believes that he has been able to spot a massive underwater city near Saipan using Google Earth. The following is what he had to say about what he discovered…
Hey guys, was looking over Google Earth and came across this remarkable looking underwater anomaly. The massive walls seem to go for about 50 miles, but long ways is about 250 miles. Sure these anomalies could be an ancient Asian civilization that sank under the ocean long ago, but it also could be an underwater alien base. Its size and location would insure millions could use it and since its in such a secluded area, few humans will ever see their UFOs leaving/entering the water.
Video of him discussing this discovery is posted below. Check it out and come to your own conclusions…
I have a feeling that we are just scratching the surface of these underwater discoveries. And since many of these sites have been totally undisturbed by human activity for thousands of years, we could potentially find some things that are absolutely mind blowing.
But the question is this – as more information about our ancient history comes to light, are you going to be able to handle it?
The Alaskan mound graveyard of gigantic human remains
Well-known American zoologist, Ivan T. Sanderson, told a peculiar story about a letter he accepted from Alan Makshir, an engineer assigned on the Aleutian Island of Shemya during World War II.
During the construction of a landing field, his working crew demolished a group of hills and apparently, underneath some sedimentary layers, they found human remains. The Alaskan heap was actually a burial ground of enormous human remains that included skulls and log leg bones.
The skull was around 22 inches from base to crown and 11 inches wide. A common adult’s skull measures about 8 inches from back to front, thus, this implies such a large cranium belonged to an immense creature.
The ancient titans had a double row of teeth and unduly flatheads.
Moreover, every skull had an accurate cut hole in its upper part, which is part of the process called trepanning. The tradition of compressing the skull of an infant in order for it to grow in an elongated shape was a usual procedure for the ancient Peruvians, the Mayas, and the Flathead Indians of Montana.
Mr. Sanderson made effort to collect additional evidence when he later received another letter which confirmed his doubts. Both letters suggested that the Smithsonian Institution gathered the mysterious remains but nothing further was explained.
Sanderson is sure this Institution has the evidence in their hands but he is curious why they don’t publish their information. He asked: “Is it that these people cannot face rewriting all the textbooks?”
The Alchemy and Artistry of Fayum Portraits
Her rapt, black eyes gaze out, as though she is waiting for one to ask her a question. Her necklace –a braid twirled and tucked in the crown of her head–hints in a noble position, as does her purple tunic, dangling earrings, and pile of necklaces dappled with pearls and gemstones. It’s been several millennia, therefore flecks of paint have sloughed off of the lifelike portrait, which has been fastened to her body during Egypt’s Coptic period, nearly 2,000 years ago.
Images such as this one, at the selection of the National Gallery of Art, are usually described as precursors to Western portraiture and also have captivated researchers for years. Known as Fayum paintings, for the Egyptian site where they have been excavated, they straddle both Greco-Roman and Egyptian styles. A thousand or so of those beguiling two-dimensional busts are currently in museums across the globe, where scientists have peppered them with queries and high tech imaging research.
To decode an early artist’s process or substances, researchers frequently analyze small samples they have scraped out of a painting, which may show, for example, the makeup of wax and paints and the sequence in which they had been applied. Researchers now frequently attempt using less-invasive, but still quite comprehensive, approaches. Last winter, for instance, a team in Northwestern enlisted a machine-learning algorithm to monitor brush strokes and establish the roots of different pigments on one of those paintings. Now, a group at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the National Gallery has employed a hybrid of three methods to find out more about this painting’s composition–and the civilization which produced it.
In a paper recently published in Nature Scientific Reports, the researchers explain how they used hyperspectral diffuse reflectance, luminescence, and X-ray fluorescence together, which enabled them to analyze everything from minerals in the pigments to underdrawing which was concealed in the finished edition. This approach also helped them connect artistic”production technology [and] other ancient ‘industries’ and practices, such as mining, metallurgy, pottery, dyeing, pharmacopeia and alchemy,” Ioanna Kakoulli, a materials scientist at UCLA, and also one of the study’s lead authors, said in a statement.
“The decoration of [the figure’s] garment is an excellent example of craftsmanship in real life being reflected within the painting,” said UCLA graduate student and coauthor Roxanne Radpour in a statement. The Stockholm Papyrus, an alchemy compendium composed in Greek in A.D. 300, holds more than 150 recipes, for example a handful for mixing up batches of madder dye, that was extracted from roots and utilized to imbue fabrics using a purple-red colour, such as the one visible on this particular figure’s dress. Just like it, in fact. Her posthumous portrait has been painted using the exact same assortment of pigment which coloured a garment she might have worn in life.
The lady’s individuality and life narrative have slipped into the sands of time, but it does not mean there still isn’t a lot to learn about her.
Gobekli Tepe | The Mysterious Temple More Than 10.000 years Old
A place in southeastern Turkey, on the Syrian border, has been amazed in recent years by archaeological discoveries that change the way we look at people who lived 10,000 years ago. In the Gobekli Tepe site, stone poles of tens of weight were found in large circles and sculpted. And everything dates back 11,500 years ago, the sanctuary being, apparently, built by hunters who did not know the wheel, neither the writing, nor the pottery, nor did they practice agriculture. Far from being a myth, Gobekli Tepe has been accepted by specialists, but its significance raises controversy, and many challenge the radical changes proposed by new discoveries.
Gobekli Tepe in Turkey is the oldest architectural complex on the planet. Surprisingly, it began to be carefully researched barely 20 years ago.
It can hardly be categorized in any way, for a simple reason: no one has any idea who built it, how – and especially – why. In this article we present some fascinating things about Gobekli Tepe.
As much as we would have liked to come up with answers in this article, the Gobekli Tepe topic actually forced us to ask more questions about the history we learned at school.
In S-E Turkey, a few tens of km from the Syrian border and near a town called Sanliurfa, a hill has attracted archaeologists since the ’70s, mostly by a large amount of limestone found there.
In 1994, when a German archaeologist, Klaus Schmidt was amazed at a large number of pieces of crema found and he realized that in ancient times there were many people working on building something big.
He decided to start digging and the first stone poles with bas-reliefs that showcased different animals: foxes, scorpions, savages, and birds.
From here, a stunning story has begun, and we now know from geomagnetic research that there are 20 circles made up of stone poles that reach more than 5 meters high and 15 tonnes in weight.
The striking aspect is that it all dates from 10,000 to 11,500 years ago, thousands of years before Stonehenge, the Egyptian Pyramids, and the invention of writing.
Schmidt, who discovered the site and supervised the work for nearly 20 years, died in the summer of 2014, but his theories questioned how we see the beginnings of complex civilizations that could have been spurred by religion, and not the economy.
The Official Version of Archeology.
According to the archaeologists, the population of Gobekli Tepe was organized into groups of hundreds of hunters that mainly caught Antilopinae. These people built a monument believed to be 6,500 years older than Stonehenge and about 7,000 years older than the Egyptian pyramids.
Created by unknown builders, Gobekli Tepe is proof of the existence of a sophisticated society on Earth, 12,000 years ago. But how many thousands of years have these people been on the planet when they created Gobekli Tepe? There is still no answer to this question.
Gobekli Tepe is at a distance of nearly 10 kilometers from Urfa, an ancient city in Turkey. It is one of the most important archaeological sites on the planet, in the vicinity of the mythological “Gardens of Eden” and near the parallel of 33 degrees.
Until today, the experts have not discovered who has built this wonderful massive complex, which seems from another world. Gobekli Tepe is considered the first temple on earth. A large part of the complex is still underground.
Gobekli Tepe, a 12,000-year-old riddle
Who built it has made colossal efforts to ensure that the monument will survive for thousands of years. The builders used a simple as an idea method, so exhausting to put into practice. They stamped everything with the ground …
Gobekli Tepe was first researched – and then totally ignored – by anthropologists at the University of Chicago and the University of Istanbul in the 1960s. Researchers thought the mound was just an abandoned medieval cemetery.
Archaeologists have spoken, including the theory that Gobekli Tepe was a place of burial. However, there was no tomb found in the area.
Gobekli Tepe is sometimes called “Stonehenge of the Desert”. The complex consists of a series of oval and circular stone structures built on the top of a hill.
Archaeologists believe that the whole complex was built 12,000 years ago. However, they have no explanation for the existence of an advanced culture in Upper Mesopotamia at the end of the last ice age.
It is supposed that, at that time, the planet was inhabited by hunter-gatherer communities trying to survive in very severe climatic conditions.
Since the rediscovery of the Gobekli Tepe complex (after nearly 50 years of abandonment), the first site excavations were made by Professor Klaus Schmidt of the German Institute of Archeology in 1995.
Until now, excavation and geomagnetic analysis results have shown that there are at least 20 temples – circular structures – in the area.
All stone pillars at Gobekli Tepe are built in the shape of the letter “T”. Monoliths have heights between 3 and 6 meters and weigh 60 tons each.
Even with today’s technology, it would be very difficult to move and assemble these monoliths.
Researchers have calculated that about 500 people would have needed to handle these enormous posts.
But in a world of chaos where every “semi-savage” individual struggled to survive, how – and by whom – were these people organized?
It remains a total mystery as to how the ancient people could carry out such a monumental project with all that this effort implied: carving the stone, finishing the strands, transporting and assembling them, and later closing the complex with the earth.
It seems absurd and frustrating, but we do not know anything else about complexity. We only know: someone from the night of history built it, and then buried it.
Archaeologists claim that, in order to complete the Gobekli Tepe project, there were stoned craftsmen, people with knowledge of the transport of heavyweights, planners, and priests, who carried out and supervised rituals.
What kind of rituals? Here’s another unanswered question. This whole system of organization exists 12,000 years ago – proves the Gobekli Tepe complex.
The builders of this magnificent place must have been part of an advanced society with complex hierarchical relationships, but about which we do not know anything today. The theory has been advanced that the “T” -like pillars are stylized human beings, especially since they each depict human extremities (hands, feet).
Besides, there were several strange signs carved on the pillars. These are foxes, snakes, boars, cranes and wild ducks. They appear to be real or mythological animals and stars and planets.
What’s stranger is that some of the artifacts found in the area are very much like ancient objects in South America (Peru, Bolivia), Asia (Indonesia), and Easter Island.
Gobekli Tepe was built very … strange. The first pillars were seated on a straight square platform. A mound of earth was built over them, over which other structures were laid, for two thousand years.
The final layer, which covered everything like a capsule, supports the last stone structures.
These were made more rudimentary than those buried in the earth. As if the first people were more technologically advanced than those who built the last stage of the Gobekli Tepe project.
The irregular, puzzle-shaped walls of blocks weighing more than 20 tons each have a unique style that was thought to be specific to lost civilizations in South America.
The irregular, puzzle-shaped walls of blocks weighing more than 20 tons each have a unique style that was thought to be specific to lost civilizations in South America.
This until similar structures began to be observed in Italy, Easter Island, Egypt, but also in Greece, Albania, Saudi Arabia and Japan.
Even if they were built thousands of years and thousands of miles away, the special architectural pattern that all these walls follow is the same, unmistakable.
It is also the most difficult in the world. And that’s because each stone place has to be carved with great precision so that all the pieces fit perfectly, in an absolutely unique layout.
Laboratory tests have shown that such walls resist even the most powerful earthquakes. Moreover, it has been found that if they are subject to seismic shocks, the walls “gather,” all the pieces behave as a unitary, organic ensemble.
The need to believe in the gods was before anything else
Schmidt’s theory overthrow the rooted theory that first people became sedentary, specialized in agriculture, organized in complex settlements and only then built sanctuaries.
Gobekli Tepe would be a proof that the need to believe in gods and divine them was before agriculture and people with rudimentary means built fantastic efforts on the complex.
An agricultural revolution has changed everything. 10,000 years ago there was a transition from “wild” to “domesticated” cereals, grown in an organized and cared way. In wild cereals, the production was small because the beans shriveled from the spice immediately after baking and the harvest were impossible.
Organically harvested cereals are possible and farmers could take advantage of their work.
After the end of the last ice age, over 11,000 years ago, it is believed that people “domesticated” the animals and plants and settled in villages that had more than 500 inhabitants. After these developments, religion emerged from the need for social cohesion.
Gobekli Tepe proposes a completely different theory: immediately after the climatic conditions improved, people felt the need to create the first forms of spirituality and built sanctuaries.
According to the theory, from the need to nourish the people who came to the sanctuary began to domesticate the animals and create an organized agriculture.
The theory of the first temple built by hunters-martyrs was challenged, the most vocal being a Canadian anthropologist on the E.B. Banning, who says that 11 years ago, Gobekli Tepe was a covered home site where people held magic and religious rituals.
Banning says that the people of those times did not need a special temple because they could combine the sacred and the profane in the place where they took their daily lives. He also says that it is very possible for the inhabitants of Gobekli Tepe to have practiced agriculture at an early stage, so they had a safe source of food.
It is impossible to reconcile the two theories and so few traces of ten millennia ago that certainties cannot be found.
But it is certain that the monumental rings are 6,000 years older than Stonehenge and 7,000 than the pyramids. And although the “father” of the site, Klaus Schmidt, died this summer, digging is continued by Lee Clare, who says the site is more fascinating because it puts more questions than answers. “Some had 30, 40 or 50 tons, probably carrying them on the logs.
Clare says that those who made these constructions were specialists of their time and had to be fed, so domestic animals and the cultivation of cereals must have been a consequence of what is happening in the sanctuary.
