A vast tapestry of geometry, consisting of lines, trapezoids, rectangles, triangles, glyphs, cairn markers, mounds, etc., is etched into the desert Pampa near Nazca, Peru. The intricate design work covers a region of about 400-square miles, with yet further pockets of similar geometry being found beyond the main groupings. Some individual lines run uninterrupted for several miles. The Nazca geometry has survived, mostly intact, for potentially thousands of years because of the arid, rainless conditions of the high desert, with the result that the greatest destruction wrought has been in the past 50-years due to mindless vehicle and foot traffic crunching over the lines.
The Nazca lines, as they've come to be known, represent one of the most baffling mysteries of our age and our expert archaeologists cannot decipher either their meaning or provide any plausible, rational and acceptable explanation as to why they were made.
The ancient Mediterranean trade route links to Nazca, Peru:
In 1991 a fleet of 14 large wooden ships were found buried at
Abydos, Egypt, eight miles from the Nile River. The ships ranged from 60 to
80-feet long and are known to be at least 5000-years old. The Abydos fleet
was analysed, in part, by Cheryl Haldane, nautical archaeologist from Texas
A&M University, who stated that, "they showed a high degree of technology combined with grace." Hancock wrote: "they were of an advanced design, capable of riding out
the most powerful waves and the worst weather of the open seas." (See Fingerprints of the Gods, chpt. 45, pp 431 & 432).
Pottery from Egypt, which can be dated to 3500 BC, depicts ships
with sails and wall paintings in the Nile Valley, dating to 4500 BC show high
prow, long sleek ships. One well preserved, heavy planked ship, attributed
to the Pharaoh Cheops (circa 2600 BC) is 150-feet in length.
We know that the Phoenician Round Ships were trading throughout
the Mediterranean and into the Atlantic from at least 1300 BC and the Phoenicians
maintained tin & lead mines in Britain or silver mines in Spain. Their
ships were large, sturdy, ocean going vessels.
When Julius Caesar made his maritime invasion of Gaul (France)
in September 55 BC, he wrote that,
"...about 220 of their ships, fully equipped and appointed with every kind of [naval] implement, sailed forth from the harbour, and drew up opposite to ours; nor did it appear clear to Brutus, who commanded the fleet, or to the tribunes of the soldiers and the centurions, to whom the several ships were assigned, what to do, or what system of tactics to adopt; for they knew that damage could not be done by their beaks; and that, although turrets were built [on
their decks], yet the height of the stems of the barbarian ships exceeded
these; so that weapons could not be cast up from [our] lower position with sufficient effect, and those cast by the Gauls fell the more forcibly upon us." Caesar described the Gallic Swan ships of the Veneti (the Celtic Gauls-Britons, controlling the English channel and coastline of both France and Britain) as deep water vessels, capable of
intercontinental voyages ... "vasto atque aperto mari" ... "upon the vast open sea" [where the Veneti were used to navigating]. See: De Bello Gallico, by Julius Caesar.
One of about 220 Gallic-Briton Swan ships and other
war vessels that came to do battle with the Roman biremes and triremes in
55 BC. If the wind on the day had not of died to nothing, within the narrow
confines of the Loire estuary, the huge, sturdily-built Gallic ships would
have won the battle.
So, the question one could ask is, where
were the Veneti of Gaul and Britons learning the arts of navigation for safe
traversals of the oceans? Caesar himself answered the question, in part, when
speaking about the Druidic teachers and their huge schools:
'They hold aloof from war and do not pay war taxes;
they are excused from military service and exempt from all liabilities. Tempted
by these great advantages, many young men assemble of their own motion to
receive their training, many are sent by parents and relatives. Report says
that in the schools of the Druids they learn by heart a great number of verses,
and therefore some persons remain twenty years under training'.
'They do not think it proper to commit these utterances
to writing, although in all other matters and in their public and private
accounts they make use of Greek characters. I believe that they have adopted
the practice for two reasons- that they do not wish the rule to become common
property, nor those who learn the rule to rely on writing and so neglect the
cultivation of memory; and, in fact, it does usually happen that the assistance
of writing tends to relax the diligence of the student and the action of memory...They also lecture on the stars in their motion, the magnitude
of the Earth and its divisions, on natural history, on the power and
government of God; and instruct the youth in these subjects' (see De Bello
Gallico, VII, 15, 16.).
Isabel Hill Elder further writes,
'The students at these
colleges numbered at times sixty thousand of the youth and young nobility
of Britain and Gaul. Caesar comments on the fact that the
Gauls sent their youth to Britain to be educated... It required twenty
years to master the complete circle of Druidic knowledge. Natural philosophy,
astronomy, mathematics, geometry, medicine, jurisprudence,
poetry and oratory were all proposed and taught-natural philosophy and
astronomy with severe exactitude.' As her sources, Elder refers
to: Strabo I IV, page 197. Caesars Comm. Lib V. Sueotonius, V Calegula.
E. Campion, Accounts of Ireland, pg. 18.).
Regarding the well-spring of Druidic knowledge, Isabelle Hill
'The education system adopted by the Druids is traced
to about 1800 BC when Hu Gardarn Hysicion (Isaacson), or Hu the Mighty, led
the first colony of Cymri into Britain from Defrobane, where Constantinople
now stands'. Further commenting on Hu Gardarn Hysicion, Isabel Hill
Elder writes that he, 'is commemorated in Welsh archaeology as having
made poetry the vehicle of memory'. Elsewhere she writes, he
'is said to have mnemonically systematized the wisdom
of the ancients...'. She goes on to say, 'The published
compositions of the Druids and Bards form but a very small portion of the
extant remains of their works. The Myvyrian MSS. alone, now in the British
Museum, amount to 47 volumes of poetry, in 1600 pages, besides about 2000
epigrammatic stanzas. Also in the same collection are 53 volumes of prose,
in about 15,300 pages, containing many curious documents on various subjects...'
(see Celt, Druid and Culdee, pages 54 & 55).
Huge open air universities, like Avebury Henge and its many
outer marker mounds, standing stone circles, etc., in the surrounding landscape,
were where the thousands of students went to learn these scientific arts.
By the time of De Bello Gallico (The
battle of Gaul) there were already well-established maritime traditions, coupled
with advanced expertise in shipwright skills and navigational techniques,
spanning several thousands of years of accrued experience.
Early Irish traditions, as well as those of other groups throughout
the British Isles, speak of former residence for their people in Egypt and
its Mediterranean satellite countries, from whence bagpipes, harps, language
roots, cultural symbolism and even the venerable oak-tree or the Stone of
Scone (upon which generations of Irish, Scottish and English monarchs received
their coronations) have their origins. In support of these longterm oral and
written traditions, leading physical anthropologist, Professor C. S. Coon
of Harvard University, wrote in 1939:
"A true and valid similarity, however, may be found
between the English Long Barrow series and early skulls from al'Urbaid in
Sumeria, which, whether belonging to the fourth or third millennium B.C.,
are in either case older than their British counterparts. The only difference
which prevents identity is that the Mesopotamian faces and noses are somewhat
longer." (p. 112 of Races of Europe, Macmillian,
New York, 1939).
On page 83 he wrote:
"It can be shown that Sumerians
who lived over 5000 years ago in Mesopotamia are almost identical in skull
and face form with living Englishmen and that pre-dynastic Egyptian skulls
can be matched both in a seventeenth century London plague pit and in Neolithic
cist graves in Switzerland."
The "waymark trails" of this ancient exodus from Egypt
and Israel, marked by standing stones, cairns, dolmens, mounds and stone circles,
extends along the top of North Africa to the Pillars of Hercules, where the
ancient migrants crossed the narrow Mediterranean straits to Gibraltar. The
waymark trails further extend along the Atlantic coast to France and Scandinavia
in the north and towards the British Isles to the west. Other trails, marked
in similar fashion, extend to China and Korea (See: Palestine,
by Major C. R. Condor, R. E. Phillip & Son, 1889 pp. 142-157; See also:
Across The Jordan, by Gottlieb Schumacher, Richard Bently & Son,
About the last fully European-Caucasoid nation left in the Eastern
Mediterranean basin were the Hebrews (no relation whatsoever to the present
day people who call themselves Jewish). The Hebrews, of whom the Phoenicians
(ranging from their ports in Israel of Sidon, Byblos and Tyre, which are now
a part of Lebanon) were a family or tribal branch, lost their entire kingdom
between 720 BC to 586 BC to Assyrian and Babylonian conquerors. The Hebrew
Phoenicians retained some outposts in Corsica, Sardinia,
or Sicily, while other refugees escaped to Greece, Spain (Iberia, which
means Hebrews) or Britain. They possessed yet other more remote outposts as
well, far from the wars of the Mediterranean and many would have escaped to
those locations as well. The last Hebrew Phoenician possessions were lost
to the Romans during the Punic Wars (circa 264 BC. Note: "Punic"
is Latin for "Phoenician"), wherein Hannibal ultimately
failed to halt the Roman conquest.
Left: An early Phoenician coin, showing a Phoenician
galley ship. An expert on the subject of Phoenician history and shipwright
states: "Nor were these boats tiny. The galley
fighting ships, with their rows of galley oars, could have a crew of over
a hundred people ... But even those were small compared to the Phoenician
cargo ships with their vast, rounded hulls. These ocean-going ships were built
for huge loads and long hauls. They made the extended trips from Mediterranean
ports out to Cadiz, Lixis and other destinations on the Atlantic Ocean coasts
of Spain and Morocco ... People have remarked that those cargo ships which
sailed the seas for many hundreds of years B.C. were comparable in size to
the ones Columbus sailed to America in 1492 A.D. Thor Heyerdahl, the modern-day
explorer, noted that the Phoenicians could have sailed to Central America
themselves ... well-informed people see it as being within the capabilities
of Phoenician ships and navigators." (Sanford Holst,
Cambridge & Boston Press).

although on some Hannibal's image faces the opposite direction.
AN ANCIENT OUTPOST & CIVILSATION OF THE EUROPEAN-MEDITERANEAN
It is a well attested fact that the sea does not abide fools
well, nor compensate for any lack of knowledge. Anyone who ventures out upon
the vast, featureless ocean does so at their peril and needs to be both very
well equipt and an adept navigator. The fact that ancient Egyptians or Peruvians
were sailing back and forth between the Mediterranean, Peru and Bolivia is
very well attested, scientifically proven and beyond dispute, due to the excellent
discoveries by German scientist Svetla Balabanova (1992) and two of her colleagues (See: Balababova, S., F. Parsche,
and W. Pirsig. 1992. First identification of drugs
in Egyptian mummies. Naturwissenschaften 79:358).
Balababova positively detected cocaine (Erythroxylon
coca) and nicotine (Nicotiana tabacum), which
are solely South American alkaloid plants from Peru & Bolivia. The cocaine
was ingested by ancient Egyptians as a sedative, probably by people suffering
the pain of toothaches or to quell discomfort associated with injuries and
debilitating illnesses in old age. The nicotine derived from South American
tobacco was used as a body wash in the mummification process or for soaking
wrapping bandages to kill the bacteria that causes putrification of tissue.
In this usage the nicotine acted as a strong preservative.
In support of all of the above, it goes unreported that tens
of thousands of perfectly preserved mummies that have been recovered from
Peru, Mexico, Bolivia and Chile, etc., are the remains of ethnic European
Caucasoids with blond, red, auburn, chestnut-brown, dark brown and black hair.
The hair itself is, on average, 30% thinner than that of present-day Indians
and is often described as "wavy" (a unique European trait). In terms
of physical anthropology, the mummified people have the longer face dolichocephalic cranial index, whereas the Indian populations are classified as, predominantly,
Mongoloid physiology with the brachycephalic
cranial index. The elaborately
prepared mummies are of people of much taller stature than the average amongst
the Indian populations and their blood groups are those of ethnic Europeans.
An ancient mural from the Temple of the Warriors at
Chichen Itza, Yucatan, showing the fate of the early white population. Some
are seen to be defending their cities, while others are loading their sailing
ships to escape by sea. Captives, stripped of their garments are led away bound.
The fate of many of the "Viracochas" was to
die on the sacrificial altars of their captors. Aztec, Mayan and Incan oral
traditions are replete with copious references and full physical descriptions
of these ancient, white, bearded people who preceded them. Moreover, the artefact
evidence left over from their epoch is found in large quantities.
Before the Nazca desert region of Peru could be made
habitable, to sustain the sizeable population that settled there several thousand
years ago, over 93-miles (150-kilometers) of mostly subterranean aqueducts
had to be dug. Along with these, there were 28 filtration galleries, some
of which penetrate underground over two thirds of a mile into the hard conglomerate
deposits and bring out 25 litres of water per second. The trussed mummy, with
the very fine, auburn-red hair, seen to the right, is typical of the tens
of thousands of mummies that have been found in the region. This reddish hair
colour is found on only a very small percentage of the world's population
(about 1-2%). The largest, present-day concentration of redheads in the world
is in the United Kingdom, where 13-percent of the population has red hair
and 40-percent carry the recessive red gene.
Further very compelling proof that the Nazca line builders
had come from homelands in the Mediterranean is provided by a huge inscription,
in Phoenician writing, spelled out by stone heaps.
The site where it is found is at Palpa Mountain, about 9-miles (14.5-kilometres)
NNW of where the main body of Nazca desert geometry commences. The huge inscription
is described in archaeological literature as 300-metres long and 20 metres
wide and says:
Dr Winters transliteration:
Come down[into the earth] and spread this. Strain and pacify the water[in the area]
Come and spread [within this region].
Grace. Go out [among the land]
and become strong.
Dr Winters further commented: "It would be interesting
if this area was settled in the past and provided arable land and water for
the ancient farmers". NEXT: The reason for the Nazca Lines
This, of course, occurred and in the Nazca region further south alone, over
93-miles (150-kilometers) of mostly subterranean aqueducts (aquifers) had
to be dug, along with multiple filtration galleries and their associated "puquios"
(wells). These ancient works are the only reason the region is habitable today.
