Episode #192: UnchartedX Swapcast - The Valley Temple and the Osereion

This week we join Ben from UnchartedX and Hugh Newman, one of the founders of Megalithomania. We turn once again to Egypt and Ben's excellent footage and photos to look at the Valley Temple on the Giza Plateau, and the Osereion, as possible examples of megalithic structures showing different stages of construction, possibly built at very different times. Again, it is in the details that really interesting possibilities about these structures come forward, and we take a close look at these details on this episode.

We have some excellent discussions about the possible purposes of these mysterious structures, and Hugh Newman brings new and interesting insights for us to consider.

We also talk about upcoming Egypt tours. Hugh Newman is cohosting one later this year, get more details here:

Hugh Newman is an explorer, megalithomaniac and author of Earth Grids: The Secret Pattern of Gaia’s Sacred Sites (2008), Stone Circles (2017) and co-author of Giants on Record (2015) and contributed to Megalith: Studies In Stone (2018). He has been a regular guest on History Channel’s Ancient Aliens and featured in Search for the Lost Giants. As well as organising the Megalithomania conferences and tours, he has spoken at events in the UK, Malta, France, Peru, Egypt, Bosnia and North America. He lives very close to Stonehenge.

Episode 191: The Hidden History of the Human Race - Part 1

We start our next book report series, this time on The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson. This book, which is a condensed version of their original work, "
Forbidden Archaeology", is filled with fascinating anomalies of archaeology and paleoanthropology, ranging from evidence of butchering in fossilized bones, to complex constructions, all found in geological contexts that seem to put them into far earlier times that current science allows for.

This episode, we read the various forwards, prefaces, and preambles of the book, establishing the methods of research and identifying the limitations of understanding in the field. We then take a look at the first set of anomalies presented in the book, which are fossil animal bones with signs of human butchering.

Episode #190: UnchartedX Swapcast - Karnak and Luxor

We return again to swapcasting with Ben from UnchartedX, and this week we are also joined by Jahannah James (check out her youtube channel here) who was on the recent Egypt trip with Ben. The four of us go through Ben's footage and their observations and memories of the trip and the sites of the Karnak and Luxor temples in Egypt. We discuss the beautiful dynastic architecture, and how it seems to be surrounding and enclosing objects of a much different and possibly much more ancient nature....the monolithic statues and obelisks, for example.
There are also incredibly beautiful monolithic doorways carved from single pieces of hard stone, some of which seem to have undergone a mysterious event that caused incredible damage to them.

We ponder these mysteries and many more as we look at the footage and the imagery that Ben provides. And yes, we know that it is sometimes frustrating to listen to something like this when you can't see the visuals. The video will be up soon on all of our channels, so look for it there, and thanks for your patience.

Episode #189: Where was Atlantis

Tony joins us this week to revisit the topic of Atlantis. This time we look at the details of the city and civilization itself, and the many possible places and times people have theorized it may have existed. Was it an antediluvian civilization, or might it have existed much more recently, in the bronze age? Was it somewhere in the Atlantic ocean, or in another body of water? We look at Morocco, Malta, Richat, Azores, Bolivia, and many other places.

Possibly, as with so many of these ancient mysteries, we will never really know.
