Published by the BBC, the play excellentely revisits the infamous 1959 tragedy, in which nine Russian college students died in the Ural Mountains in unexplained circumstances that continue to bother researchers today.

One of the people interviewed for the article was Tatiana Perminova, who was 12 when her brother, Igor Dyatlov, embarked on the unfortunate walking trip. She recalled that their mother had tried to dissuade him from following the journey, arguing that he should focus on his studies. However, Perminova recalled, Igor managed to convince her after promising that it would be his last trip to the mountains before graduating. “And indeed,” his sister remarked sadly, “it was his last time.”

Coldly, Perminova revealed that she was the one who answered the phone at her house six decades ago, when authorities phoned with the frightening news that Igor had died.

She said:

The next day my parents were summoned to college, and the nightmare began.

As for what may have caused the disappearance of his brother and colleagues, Perminova indicated that families were as confused by the case as the rest of the world, and were insulted by the Russian authorities that “you will never know the truth, so stop to ask questions. ”

She stressed:

Don’t forget, in those days, if they told you to shut up, you would be silent.

However, with six decades since the incident, Perminova no longer harbors these fears. As such, she dismissed popular prosaic theories for what killed the group, such as an avalanche or hurricane, and suggested that something more sinister had occurred.

She asked:

If it was just an ordinary walk that went wrong because of extreme weather conditions, why worried the highest authorities in the country? I think that means something extraordinary has happened.

Although she did not seem to present a specific theory for what killed her brother and friends, Perminova spoke of the tremendous pain that families have suffered in the last sixty years with so many unanswered questions.

She said, noting an ongoing effort by independent investigators in Russia to exhume the bodies of the victims of Step Dyatlov for a further examination:

Emotionally, this is very difficult. Imagine digging up their coffins. But if there is no other way to find the answers, ok, let’s see what happens next.

Other firsthand witnesses featured in the play include a man who participated in the search that led to the discovery of the bodies of the victims, as well as a woman who lived in a nearby village at the time of the incident and claims to have seen a “bright and fiery object in the sky” which somehow resembled a missile. This observation seems to give credence to the possibility that Dyatlov and his comrades might have died from a cover-up accident. This was repeated by another local resident who was also 12 at the time of the incident and recalled how “there were rumors throughout the city that these students had participated in some kind of test or experiment.”

All in all, the BBC program is a must watch for those studying the Dyatlov Pass incident, as it includes a wealth of previously unpublished stories of individuals who were closely linked to the case, such as Perminova, or who resided in the area after the intriguing event occurred. It also features conversations with contemporary investigators who are still trying to solve the mystery of what happened to the nine hikers in the Ural Mountains that fateful February night so long ago.

Dead Cities in Antarctica

As everyone knows, the unknown depths of the planet Earth have always attracted researchers and scientists of all times and people with their enigmatic mystery. So, one of the most unknown and least studied regions of the Earth is considered to be its South Pole – Antarctica. Research and discoveries conducted on this continent only leave behind even more questions. But what can be unknown and unexplored in a territory almost completely covered with eternal ice?

Here are some general information about the mainland. The surface of the sixth continent of the Earth is more than 99 percent covered with ice. Studies by scientists have shown that the largest thickness of the ice cover is about 4.5 kilometers. The average is about 1.7 kilometers. It is known that the total volume of all ice varies from 23-25 ​​million cubic kilometers.

The region can rightfully be called the Earth’s cold pole. On the surface of permafrost, low temperature indicators of air are recorded. In the winter period (June-August) this average mode is minus 70 degrees Celsius, and in the summer season (December-February) it rises on average to minus 40 degrees.

There are no land mammals in Antarctica. Its permanent inhabitants are elephant seals, penguins and some species of birds.

It is interesting that this continent is fraught with more secrets and mysteries than one of the planets of our solar system – Mars. And it differs from it not by many, except in the fact that there is more oxygen. And the temperature on the surface is almost the same. It is known that on July 21, 1983, the Vostok station recorded the lowest temperature on Earth in the entire history of meteorological observations and reached 90 degrees below zero. Even the actual photographs of the surface of eternal ice are much smaller than that of Mars.

Since the Russian navigators under the command of Bellingshausen and Lazarev discovered Antarctica (January 27, 1820), only a negligible part of the information was found out about it. Scientists and researchers do not know what is hidden under the huge thickness of ice. Even the surface of the continent remains poorly understood.

It is worth noting that over the past decade, lakes with warm currents interconnected by a network of tunnels have been discovered under the ice in the mainland. Based on the information from various sources, these passages are quite extensive and are located at a depth of about 4 kilometers underground. According to experts, it is even possible to get to other places on our globe through them.

In order to investigate the uncharted land, in 1938, on June 16, an expedition of researchers was sent to Antarctica under the command of Alfred Ritscher, which included three ships and the aircraft carrier Manfred von Richthofen. On October 14 of that year they discovered a dead city “in a mountain valley with a pyramid.” In this area, scientists came across strange monuments with ancient inscriptions, unusual underwater corridors and tunnels with patterns on the walls, as well as sculptures that are very reminiscent of idols from the famous Easter island. The expedition staff carefully recorded everything they saw on camera.

To continue this study in the bowels of eternal ice, on October 11, 1938, five more submarines were sent to the Antarctic region by the order of Adolf Hitler. One of them under tail number UA – 4 in early November, was able to pass along an underwater corridor at the exit of the warm current of about 800 meters length. Then the submarine entered the center of the mountain through the tunnel and climbed to the surface in the lake with warm water. It was a giant cave with the same strange monuments and inscriptions, which turned out to be connected by a network of tunnels with other similar caves. And on December 20, members of the research team identified mines of non-natural origin. The walls of these shafts had a surprisingly smooth and even surface, sharply going down. The finding of stone statues in the form of animals with wings and sharp fangs turned out to be an interesting fact for scientists. A little bit later, during the three-year period, they found a couple more dead cities with passages leading to the caves. Upon returning home from the expedition, one submarine mysteriously crashed…

It is also interesting that the well-known Chilean diplomat, Miguel Serrano, who was directly involved in one of the expeditions to the sixth continent in 1947 – 1948, tried to find an oasis with warm springs there. The politician also invited the famous Hannah Reich, a pilot of the Third Reich, to take a plane to the South Pole in order to find the entrance to the center of the Earth there.

All this time, scientists did not abandon attempts to find answers to questions about the discovered dead cities. So, a few decades later in December 1973, a group of scuba divers led by the famous, World Ocean French explorer Jacques Yves Cousteau, also discovered an underwater cave. Having made their way into it, they saw all the same animal statues and incomprehensible inscriptions. However, the group of captain Cousteau returned home not in full force. Mysteriously, five people died on the way back.

The next expedition of 1979-1983 was made by Russian researchers. With three underwater submarines and two ships, they managed to find an underwater tunnel leading to the dead city of Okmaron, which existed six thousand years ago. And again, runic inscriptions were discovered, which were subsequently decrypted, but immediately classified. It is worth noting that when exploring the city, for inexplicable reasons, one of the boats was damaged and had to be left in one of the caves …

It should be noted that some of these studies provide a mystical explanation. So, one of the explanations is as follows. Presumably, during the expedition to Tibet, information was collected that a whole network of warm underground currents and caves was found throughout the Antarctic region. Perhaps this is something that remains of an once prosperous culture or civilization that transcends the modern human mind. And perhaps these cities were built by aliens who flew to Earth.

There is also the assumption that the ice-covered continent, in fact, was once the mysteriously disappeared mainland Atlantis.

For example, not so long ago, a group of American and European scientists and researchers announced the discovery of three pyramids in Antarctica. They managed to photograph these huge, amazing objects. According to experts, these pyramids are of artificial origin. The team recorded that one of the pyramids found is located directly on the coast, and the other two are located at a distance of 16 kilometers from its line. In appearance, these objects have a surprising resemblance to the Egyptian pyramids, the oldest of which dates back to 2670 BC. More detailed messages and information about them were not provided.

At the same time, the main source of information about the pyramids was a short video report, in which several photographs were shown, accompanied by small text captions. It was also mentioned that a new research team is being prepared, which will go to study the discovered pyramids. Only after this it will be possible to say anything definite about their origin. However, the timing of the expedition is not yet called.

Sometime ago, scientists at the Australian National University officially announced that they had discovered gigantic caves in Antarctica, many kilometers deep into the mainland. The temperature in them reaches + 25 ° C. Researchers believe that life, developed flora and fauna should exist in caves. Already today it is known that lichens, algae, and simple invertebrates live there. The head of the group of Australian researchers Seridven Fraser believes that quite large animals, unknown to science today, can live in the depths of the caves. For this reason, scientists are still afraid to penetrate deep into the caves discovered by them, because they do not know what they might encounter on their way.

Through The Eyes Of A Clairvoyant

In 2017, Corey Goode, a popular insider in the West, told the world community about where the caves discovered by Australians can lead to. In childhood, Goode displayed a telepathic talent with the ability to communicate with other civilizations. In his own words, Guda was recruited as a boy into a secret space program controlled by the world government. After 30 years, Corey Goode severed ties with his curators and decided to tell humanity the truth about a number of world puzzles. In March 2017, he announced that a city of ancient civilization was being excavated in Antarctica. According to Good, he personally visited the site of the discovery of ancient buildings to witness an incredible discovery. The insider also confirmed the authenticity of the Nazi work on the study of the ancient city: they were conducted from 1939 until the end of the war. In addition, Corey Goode answered the question why the participants of Antarctic expeditions are silent about this and other facts. According to his interview, until 2002, excavations of the remains of an ancient civilization were prohibited, and then classified. Nevertheless, Goode assured the world community that today documents have already been prepared that describe these ambitious studies. The clairvoyant believes that soon they will be officially announced and the world will be struck by a sensational discovery.

Western journalists did not wait for the report of scientists. Moreover, most likely, it will be classified in order not to ruin the official ideas about earthly history. Representatives of the press asked Goode to talk about how the inhabitants of Antarctica looked like. According to the insider, these were creatures similar to people with elongated oval skulls, a little more than 3.5 meters tall. An insider called them Pre-Adamites. According to Corey Goode, the ancient inhabitants of Antarctica arrived on Earth from space about 55,000 years ago and archaeologists have unearthed three mothership spacecraft of up to 30 kilometers in diameter and many small flying saucers.  Pre-Adamites died due to a natural cataclysm of cosmic origin, as a result of which Antarctica was covered with an ice shell.  Goode also mentioned the entrance to the underground voids.

An insider said that not the whole truth will be revealed to the public in order to avoid shock. The ruins of the ancient city and only a small part of artifacts will be shown to the world. The remains of the Pre-Adamites, their motherhips and small flying saucers will be kept secret.

Concealment Of Evidence

It seems that in the near future we will really not know what the ice of Antarctica actually hides. This is confirmed by the story that happened with the American crew of Atlantis-TV. Its employees disappeared in Antarctica in November 2002. When they searched for the missing journalists with the help of helicopters, the video was able to capture the excavations in the area of ​​the McMurdo American Antarctic station. The record clearly shows that under the ice at a depth of about 3 kilometers, Americans are excavating the ancient city! A unique video became known from the Archaeological Bulletin, published by renowned archaeologist Jonathan Gray. Later, Atlantis-TV lawyers officially announced that the US government had promised to block an uncomfortable video if it appeared on the Internet. 

Simultaneously with these events, two officers of the US Navy, on condition of anonymity, confirmed to the US National Science Foundation that excavations were underway. The officers personally saw a video depicting the ruins and some “gizmos” resembling spaceships. Of course, officially, the US military refutes any information that an ancient city was discovered under the ice of Antarctica.

FROM SPACE EVERYTHING IS SEEN!

Of course, anyone who is not tempted by conspiracy theories will doubt the words of Corey Goode and American journalists, demanding material evidence. However, it is unlikely that at least one state in the world will provide them, especially if what the scientists are talking about is true. Private researchers find it difficult to get to Antarctica; those who get there with rare excursion groups do not move away from the allowed routes.

Nevertheless, researchers studying the surface of the Earth using Google satellite maps, said that everything that fans of the conspiracy theory are talking about is true. Internet archaeologists have discovered a flying saucer, frozen into the surface of Antarctica, as well as two entrances to underground bases. One of the leading researchers of virtual archeology, Scott Waring, posted on the Web the coordinates of the entrances to the underground caves: -66 ° 36’12.58 ″, + 99 ° 43’12.72 ″; -66 ° 33’11.56 ″, + 99 ° 50’17.46 ″. Anyone can make sure that the icy continent in its womb really hides certain secrets.

Therefore, the question of where these strange pyramids came from and who could create them can only be guessed. Perhaps these are mountain cliffs of the perfectly regular geometric shape. Or maybe this is the work of human hands. We still have to find out what the sixth continent – Antarctica – is fraught with …

Egyptian Maze Keeps Secrets of Ancient Civilizations

Everyone knows about the existence of mysterious pyramids in Egypt, but not everyone knows that a huge labyrinth is hidden under them. The secrets stored there are able to reveal the secrets of not only Egyptian civilization, but of all mankind.

This ancient Egyptian labyrinth was located near Birket-Karun Lake, west of the Nile River, 80 kilometers south of the modern city of Cairo. It was built back in 2300 BC and was a building surrounded by a high wall, where there were fifteen hundred ground and as many underground rooms.

The total area of ​​the maze was 70 thousand square meters. Visitors were not allowed to inspect the underground labyrinth premises; there were tombs for pharaohs and crocodiles – sacred animals in Egypt. Above the entrance to the Egyptian labyrinth, the following words were inscribed:

“Madness or death is what the weak or the vicious find here, only the strong and good find life and immortality here”

Many frivolous entered this door and did not leave it. This is the abyss that brings back only the brave in spirit. The complex system of corridors, courtyards and rooms in the maze was so confusing that without a guide, an outsider could never find a way or a way out of it. The labyrinth was plunged into absolute darkness, and when some doors were opened, they made a terrible sound, similar to peals of thunder or the roar of a thousand lions.

Before the great holidays, mystery rituals were held in the labyrinth and sacrifices were made, including human sacrifices. So the ancient Egyptians showed their respect to the god Sebek – a huge crocodile. In ancient manuscripts, information has been preserved that crocodiles, which reached 30 meters in length, actually lived in the maze.

The Egyptian labyrinth is an unusually large structure – the dimensions of its base are 305 x 244 meters. The Greeks admired this maze more than any other Egyptian building, with the exception of the pyramids. In antiquity it was called the “labyrinth”, and it served as a model for the labyrinth in Crete.

With the exception of a few columns, it is now completely destroyed. Everything that we know about it is based on ancient evidence, as well as on the results of excavations carried out by Sir Flinders Petri, who attempted to reconstruct this building. The earliest mention belongs to the Greek historian Herodotus of Halicarnassus (about 484-430 BC), he mentions in his History that Egypt is divided into twelve administrative districts ruled by twelve rulers, and then gives his own impressions of this building :

“And so they decided to leave a common monument, and having decided this, they erected a labyrinth a little higher than Lake Meridov, near the so-called Crocodile City. I saw this maze inside: it is beyond any description. After all, if all the walls and great constructions erected by the Hellenes were assembled, then in general it would turn out that they spent less labor and money than this labyrinth alone.

Meanwhile, the temples in Ephesus and on Samos are very remarkable. Of course, the pyramids are huge structures and each of them is worth in size many of the creations of Hellenic building art combined, although they are also great. However, the labyrinth is larger than these pyramids. It has twenty courtyards with gates one on the other, with six facing north and six facing south, adjacent to each other.

Outside, around them there is a single wall. Inside this wall there are chambers of two genera: some underground, others above the earth, number 3000, namely 1500 of each. I myself had to go through the elevated chambers and examine them, and I speak of them as an eyewitness. I know about the underground chambers only from stories: the Egyptian caretakers never wanted to show them to me, saying that there are tombs of the kings who built this labyrinth, as well as the tombs of sacred crocodiles.

Therefore, I speak of the lower chambers only by hearsay. The upper chambers that I had to see surpass all the creations of human hands. The passage through the chambers and the winding passages through the courtyards, being very confusing, cause a feeling of endless amazement: from the courtyards you go to the chambers, from the chambers to galleries with colonnades, then again to the chambers and from there back to the courtyards.

There are stone roofs everywhere, as well as walls, and these walls are covered with many relief images. Each courtyard is surrounded by columns of carefully fitted pieces of white stone. And on the corner at the end of the labyrinth a pyramid was erected with a height of 40 orgies (240 feet), with huge figures carved on it. An underground passage leads to the pyramid. ”

Manetho, the high priest of Egypt from Heliopolis, who wrote in Greek, notes in his work, preserved in fragments, dating from the III century BC. e. and dedicated to the history and religion of the ancient Egyptians, that the creator of the labyrinth was the fourth pharaoh of the XII dynasty, Amenemhat III, whom he calls Laharez, Lampares or Labaris, and about which he writes:

“He ruled for eight years. In the Arsinoi nome, he built himself a tomb – a maze with many rooms.”

Between 60 and 57 years BC. e. Greek historian Diodorus of Sicily temporarily lived in Egypt. In his Historical Library, he claims that the Egyptian labyrinth is in good condition.

“After the death of this ruler, the Egyptians became independent again and elevated to the throne a compatriot ruler, Mendes, whom some call Marrus. He did not conduct any military operations, but built for himself a tomb, known as the Labyrinth.

This Labyrinth is notable not only for its size, but for the cunning and mastery of the internal device, which cannot be reproduced. For when a person enters this Labyrinth, he cannot find the way back, and he needs the help of an experienced guide, to whom the device of the building is known thoroughly.

Some also say that Daedalus, who visited Egypt and admired this wonderful creation, built a similar labyrinth for the Cretan king Minos, in which was kept, as the myth says, a monster named Minotaur. However, the Cretan labyrinth no longer exists, it is possible that some of the rulers razed it to the ground, while the Egyptian labyrinth stood in complete inviolability to our time. “

Diodorus did not see this building, he only gathered together the data available to him. When describing the Egyptian labyrinth, he used two sources and was unable to recognize that both of them tell about the same building. Soon after compiling his first description, he begins to consider these building as a common monument to the twelve nomarchs of Egypt:

“For two years there was no ruler in Egypt, and riots and murders began among the people, then the twelve most important leaders united in a holy union. They gathered for a council in Memphis and concluded an agreement on mutual fidelity and friendship and proclaimed themselves rulers.

They ruled in accordance with their oaths and promises, maintained mutual consent for fifteen years, after which they decided to build a common tomb for themselves. Their plan was that, as in life, they cherished a cordial arrangement for each other, they were given equal honors, and after the death their bodies should rest in one place, and the monument erected on their orders should symbolize the glory and power of those buried there.

This was to surpass the creations of their predecessors. And so, choosing a place for their monument near Lake Meridov in Libya, they built a tomb of magnificent stone in the shape of a square, however, in size, each side of it was equal to one court. Descendants could never surpass the mastery of carved ornaments and any other work.

Egyptian Maze Keeps Secrets of Ancient Civilizations, image # 5

A hall surrounded by columns was built behind the fence, forty on each side, the roof of the courtyard was made of solid stone, hollowed out from the inside and decorated with elaborate and multi-colored paintings. The courtyard was also adorned with magnificent picturesque images of the places where each of the rulers was from, as well as the temples and shrines there.

On the whole, it is known about these rulers that the scale of their plans for the construction of their tomb was so great – both in terms of its size and cost – that if they were not overthrown before the construction was completed, their creation would remain unsurpassed. And after these rulers reigned in Egypt for fifteen years, it so happened that the rule passed to one person … “

Unlike Diodorus, the Greek geographer and historian Strabo of Amasa (about 64 BC – 24 AD) gives a description based on personal impressions. In 25 BC e. he, as part of the retinue of the Prefect of Egypt, Guy Cornelius Gallus, traveled to Egypt, about which he described in detail in his “Geography”:

“In addition, in this nome there is a labyrinth – a structure that can be compared with the pyramids – and next to it is the tomb of the king, the builder of the labyrinth. Near the first entrance to the canal, after going forward 30 or 40 courts, we will reach a flat area in the form of a trapezoid, where the village is located, as well as a large palace, consisting of many palace rooms, numbering as many as in the old days there were nomes, because there are so many halls which are surrounded by adjacent colonnades, all these colonnades are located in one row and along one wall, which is similar to a long wall with halls in front of it, and the paths leading to them are directly opposite to the wall.

Before the entrances to the halls there are many long covered vaults with winding paths between them, so that without a guide no outsider can find either an entrance or an exit. It is surprising that the roof of each dormitory consists of one stone and that the covered vaults in width are likewise covered with slabs of solid stone of extremely large size, without any admixture of wood anywhere or any other substance.

Having risen to a roof of small height, since the labyrinth is one-level, you can see a stone plain consisting of stones of the same large size; from here, going down to the halls again, one can notice that they are arranged in a row and rest on 27 columns, their walls are also made of stones of no lesser size.

Egyptian Maze Keeps Secrets of Ancient Civilizations, image # 6

At the end of this building, which occupies more space than the court, a tomb is placed – a quadrangular pyramid, each side of which is about a plegra in width with equal height.

The name of the buried there is Imandes. It is said that such a number of halls was built by virtue of the custom to gather here from all the nomes according to the significance of each, together with their priests and priestesses for sacrifices, gifts to the gods and for legal proceedings on important matters. Each room was assigned a hall dedicated to it. ”

A little further, in the 38th chapter, Strabo gives a description of his trip to the sacred crocodiles of Arsinoe (Crocodilopolis). This place is located next to the labyrinth, so we can assume that he also saw the labyrinth. Pliny the Elder (23 / 24-79 AD) in his “Natural History” provides the most detailed description of the labyrinth.

“Let’s say about the labyrinths, perhaps the most outlandish creation of human wastefulness, but not fictitious, as they might think. There still exists in Egypt in Heracleopolis nome the one that was first created, it is reported, 3600 years ago, by King Petesuh or Titoes, although Herodotus says that the whole structure was created by 12 kings, the last of which was Psammetich.

Its purpose is interpreted differently: according to Demotel, it was the royal palace of Moterida, according to Likey – the tomb of Merida, according to the interpretation of many, it was built as a sanctuary of the Sun, which is most likely.

In any case, there is no doubt that Daedalus borrowed from here a sample of the labyrinth that he created in Crete, but reproduced only its one-hundredth part, which contains the rotation of the paths and the intricate passages back and forth, not like the ones we see at the pavilions or in field games of men, containing many thousands of walking steps, and with many built-in doors for fraudulent moves and return to the same wanderings.

It was the second labyrinth after the Egyptian one, the third was on Lemnos, the fourth in Italy, all covered with ashlar vaults. In the Egyptian, the entrance and columns are made of stone from Paros, the rest is made of blocks of syenite – pink and red granite, which can hardly be destroyed even in centuries, even with the assistance of the Heracles.

It is impossible to describe in detail the location of this building and each part separately, since it is divided into regions, as well as prefectures, which are called nomes, and 21 names are allocated as many as the vast premises. In addition, it has temples of all the gods of Egypt, and in addition, Nemesis in 40 edicules of closed chapels of the memorial churches concluded many pyramids of forty girths, each occupying six arrays of 0.024 hectares at the base.

Tired of walking, they fell into that famous intricate trap of roads. Not only that, here the second floors are high on the slopes, and the descending ninety-step porticos. Inside – columns of porphyrite stone, images of gods, statues of kings, monstrous figures. Some rooms are designed so that when the doors are opened, a terrible thunder is heard inside.

Beyond the wall of the labyrinth there are other huge structures – they are called the colonnade pteron. From there, underground passages are dug, leading to other underground rooms. Something was restored there by only one Ceremonial, an eunuch of King Nekteb [Nektaneba I], 500 years before Alexander the Great.

It is also reported that during the construction of ashlar stone vaults, the supports were made of back trunks [Egyptian acacia] boiled in oil. ”

Description of the Roman geographer Pomponius Mela, who in 43 AD e. set forth in his essay “On the Situation of the Earth”, consisting of three books, the accepted in Rome views on the known world:

“The labyrinth built by Psammetikh covers one thousand three hundred halls and twelve palaces with one continuous wall. Its walls and roof are marble. The maze has only one entrance.

Inside it there are countless twisting passages. All of them are directed in different directions and communicate with each other. In the corridors of the labyrinth there are porticos that are pairwise similar to each other. Corridors go around each other. This creates a lot of confusion, but you can figure it out.

The authors of antiquity do not propose any single, consistent definition of this outstanding structure. However, since in Egypt of the time of the pharaohs, only shrines and structures dedicated to the cult of the dead (tombs and funerary churches) were built of stone, then all of their other buildings, including palaces, were built of wood and clay bricks, which means that the maze could not be a palace, administrative center or monument (provided that Herodotus, speaking of “a monument” does not mean “a tomb, which is quite possible).

On the other hand, since the pharaohs of the XII dynasty built pyramids as tombs, the temple remains the only possible destination for the “labyrinth”. According to a very plausible explanation given by Alan B. Lloyd, it probably served as the funeral temple for Amenemhet III, who was buried in a pyramid nearby, as well as a temple dedicated to some gods.

The answer to the question of how this “labyrinth” got its name remains unconvincing. Attempts have been made to derive this term from the Egyptian words “al lopa-rohun, laperohunt” or “ro-per-ro-henet”, meaning “entrance to the temple by the lake”.

But there is no phonetic correspondence between these words and the word “labyrinth”, and nothing similar was found in Egyptian texts either. It has also been suggested that the throne name of Amenemhat III, Lamares, whose Hellenized version sounds like “Labaris,” comes from the name of the temple of Labaris.

This probability cannot be ruled out, but this does not explain the essence of the phenomenon. Moreover, a valid argument against such an interpretation is the fact that Herodotus, the author of the earliest written source, does not mention Amenemhat III and his throne names. He does not mention how the structure was called “Amenemhet lives” by the Egyptians. He simply talks about the “maze”, not considering it necessary to explain what it is.

To describe a huge, awe-inspiring, skillfully executed stone structure, he uses the Greek term, as if this term expresses a certain general meaning, concept. It is this kind of description that is given in all other written sources, and only later authors mention the danger of getting lost.

Therefore, we can conclude that the term “labyrinth” in this case is used metaphorically, it serves as the name for a certain building, an outstanding structure made of stone. M. Budimir, resorting to historical and linguistic argumentation, came to a similar conclusion, interpreting the labyrinth as a term meaning “building of large size.”

The German Jesuit and scholar Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680), known to his contemporaries as Doctor centum artium, tried to reconstruct the Egyptian “labyrinth” based on ancient descriptions.

In the center of the figure is a labyrinth, which Kircher may have modeled after Roman mosaics. Around are images symbolizing the twelve nomes – administrative units of Ancient Egypt described by Herodotus. This drawing, engraved on copper (50 X 41 cm), is placed in the book The Tower of Babel, or Archontology (Turris Babel, Sive Archontologia, Amsterdam, 1679).

In 2008, a group of researchers from Belgium and Egypt began exploring objects hidden underground, hoping to find and solve the mystery of the mysterious underground complex of ancient civilization.

The Belgian-Egyptian expedition, armed with scientific instruments, and technology that allows you to look into the secret of the premises hidden under the sand, was able to confirm the presence of an underground temple near the pyramid of Amenemkhet III. Without a doubt, the expedition led by Petri led one of the most incredible discoveries in the history of Egypt out of the darkness of oblivion, shedding light on the greatest discovery. But if you think that the discovery took place, and you do not know about it, then you will be mistaken with the conclusion.

This significant discovery was hidden from society, and no one could understand why this happened. The results of the expedition, a publication in the scientific journal NRIAG, research findings, a public lecture at the University of Ghent – all this was “frozen” because the Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt, banned all reports of the find, allegedly because of the imposed sanctions of the Egyptian service security protecting an ancient monument.

Louis de Cordier, and other expedition researchers patiently waited for an answer to the excavations in the maze area for several years, with the hope of recognizing the find and the desire to make it public, but unfortunately this did not happen.

But even if the researchers confirmed the existence of the underground complex, excavations should still be carried out in order to explore the incredible conclusion of scientists. After all, it is believed that the treasures of the underground labyrinth can give answers to the countless historical secrets of ancient Egyptian civilization, as well as give new knowledge about the history of mankind and other civilizations.

The question here is only one, why did this undeniably incredible historical discovery fall under the oppression of “silence”?

The strange disappearance of three boys in Murphy’s Cave

In the US state of Missouri, one of the local attractions is a vast network of caves that have thousands of passages, both above and below ground.

Because of these caves, Missouri is often referred to as the “state of the caves,” and it is not surprising that they attract many explorers as well as adventurers.

Most of these caves were well explored in the first half of the twentieth century. But because of the intensive construction of Highway 79 in the 1960s, employees sometimes encounter new gaps that lead to unexplored parts of local caves.

One of these caves is called the Murphy’s Cave. The openings leading to its tunnels were located very close to the houses of the city of Hannibal, one hundred miles northwest of St. Louis.

This city is known as the birthplace of Mark Twain and in particular the Mark Twain Cave where Tom Sawyer films were made. Excursions to this cave are still being made.

In the 1960s, parents strictly forbade their children from even looking at the openings in the ground. They feared crashes and other disasters. But who could stop the curious children?

The three Hannibal boys were particularly curious about the caves. They were 10-year-old Billy Hoag, his brother 13-year-old Joel Hoag and their friend 14-year-old Craig Dowell.

They regularly picked up lanterns and went down into the dark cave tunnels. Their parents forbade them to go there, but in response the boys said they would play in the yard and actually went to the caves.

On May 9, 1967, the three children headed to Murphy’s Cave. They were waiting for the moment when the construction workers at the site would go to rest. The parents found out when they saw the characteristic reddish dirt on their clothes. There was a serious rebuke.

However, on May 10, the three went to the same cave again, using the moment Houg’s parents were in the store to shop.

The boys prepared thoroughly. They took shovels, lanterns and other necessary things. At 3pm, they were spotted by a casual passer-by walking to the entrance of Murphy’s Cave. He noticed that the boys were dragging a makeshift ladder of boards to lower themselves through the opening inside the cave.

This was the last time these children were seen alive. After that, they disappear and even traces of them, much less their bodies, were found.

When the parents of the Hoag brothers returned from the store and saw that their children had disappeared, they became very angry and intended to give them a good lesson. But when the children did not return home during the time that they would usually go back from their games, their parents were worried. They began to pray that nothing bad would happen to the boys.

When it was dark, the Hoags went to their neighbors and someone told them that they had seen the Hoag brothers and young Dole near the Murphy Cave. City officials have been notified of the disappearance of the three children, who may have been lost in the cave.

The next morning, police, national guards and volunteers organized a mass search for the boys. At one point, FBI experts got involved in the process.

Hundreds of people explored the tunnels of all nearby caves, not just Murphy’s Cave. All suspicious passageways, narrow cracks and still unexplored tunnels were carefully checked.

But everything was in vain. They did not even find traces of the children. The tunnels of Murphy’s Cave are very complex and winding. They were all well researched.

Then, searchers began looking around the surrounding forests, abandoned houses and old mines. They even summoned a few psychics who claimed they could “feel” the place where the children had disappeared. But, again without result…

This large-scale search of the missing went on for 10 consecutive days and was among the most popular searches in Missouri’s history. As a result, only one probable trace of the boys was found – a baby sock lying near the entrance to the cave.

The sock wasn’t dirty, so it obviously hadn’t been in that place for a long time. The search crew clung to it as a probable evidence. However, none of the parents of the missing children was able to confirm whether the sock belonged to one of the Hoag brothers or Dowell.

The opening leading to Murphy’s Cave, to which the boys were last seen

There were some false footprints. At one point, near a cave, they found a dried puddle of brown liquid similar to blood, but during the investigation it turned out that the puddle was from a spilled bottle of fertilizer.

Another such clue is that someone apparently saw the boys out of town alive after the search began, but no children or traces of them were found at that location.

There was also a strange message about a man in a black cloak who was not recognized as a city resident, police officer or anyone else. He was spotted in many places where children were being searched. It was as if he was trying to hide and secretly monitor the work of the search groups.

According to one of the first versions, the children were buried alive when one of the cave tunnels collapsed, but as mentioned above, all possible tunnels of the nearest caves were checked by search crew and they did not find any traces of fresh collapses there.

According to another version, the boys may have accidentally entered a completely new tunneling system that other researchers have not noticed. And nowadays, near Hannibal, sometimes new tunnels are found in the local caves, which are caused by expansion, rainfall and other reasons. All new tunnels have been carefully inspected.

Volunteers are still trying to find the remains of the missing boys or at least their belongings. But, so far, they haven’t found anything …

Other theories say that the children fled to another city or were abducted.

The memory of this strange disappearance of these three boys is still commented on in Hannibal. A memorial plaque with the boys’ names and their history is placed next to the ill-fated entrance to Murphy’s Cave, which is now closed.
