The Ancient Calendar Circle at Nabta Playa

Nabta Playa is an internally drained basin that served as an important ceremonial center for nomadic tribes during the early part of 9560 BC. Located 62 miles west of Abu Simbel some 60 miles west of the Nile near the Egyptian-Sudanese border. Nabta contains a number of standing and toppled megaliths. They include flat, tomb-like stone structures and a small stone circle that predates Stonehenge (2600 B.C.), and other similar prehistoric sites by 1000's of years.
 
An assembly of huge stone slabs found in Egypt’s Sahara Desert that date from about 6500 years to 6000 years ago has been confirmed by scientists to be the oldest known astronomical alignment of megaliths in the world.
 
Today we know that the great megaliths of Nabta Playa are anything but random stones. Long ago, someone relocated them from a still unknown quarry–––but for what purpose? Subsequent excavations led by Fred Wendorf, one of the discoverers and a much traveled archaeologist, turned up an abundance of cultural artifacts, which were radiocarbon dated. The ages ranged from 10,000 B.C. to 3,000 B.C., with most of the dates clustered around 7,000 B.C., when the climate was much wetter than now.

NABTA PLAYA - Ancient Egypt origin (Robert Bauval) ( 10 mins)
Robert Bauval presents evidence that an advanced black African civilization inhabited the Sahara long before Pharaonic Egypt, and reveals black Africa to be at the genesis of ancient civilization and the human story.
The mysterious Nabta Playa ceremonial area and its stone calendar circle and megaliths, and put forward the solid hypothesis that an advanced civilization of black Africans settled in the Sahara long before Pharaonic Egypt existed.

Nabta Playa Megalithic Stone Complex Pt 1/ 2 ( 8 mins)
To summarize briefly Nabta Playa is a very ancient stone megalithic complex. The megaliths are aligned with stars and display a very acute understanding of the heavenly bodies they are oriented towards. This is the work of Thomas Brophy and can be found in his book, The Origin Map: Discovery of a Prehistoric, Megalithic, Astrophysical Map and Sculpture of the Universe.

Nabta Playa Megalithic Stone Complex Pt 2/ 2 ( 8 mins)
The Nabta Playa complex is the earliest known Archeological site in Egypt (c.11,000 years old) and only recently has our knowledge of Astrophysics become complex enough to understand that it is a map of the heavens over a 26,000 year long period, the length of the procession of the equinoxes to complete the cycle, incidentally the same length as the Mayan calendar, that is about to start over again in December 2012.
This understanding points to a people of the stars, and is in keeping with the stories on the walls of the Sumerian temples, our oldest stone tablet libraries that tell us over and over again...

The Cave Art of Jebel Uwainat


"There are lions, giraffes, ostriches, and all kinds of gazelles, but no camels. 'Who made these?' I asked Malakheni, the Tebu. He expressed the belief that they were the work of the jinn [demons]...there are no giraffes in this part of Africa now, nor do they live in any similar desert country anywhere. Perhaps even more significant is the absence of camels from the drawings...the camel came to Africa from Asia not later [than] 500BC."

Nubian Pyramids in Sudan ( 3 mins)
Nubia one of the oldest Civilization


Around 8,000 years ago, a rich and powerful nation called the kingdom of Kush (also referred to as ancient Nubia) was a center of culture and military might in Africa


Nubians are the people of northern Sudan and southern Egypt. With a history and traditions which can be traced to the dawn of civilization, the Nubian first settled along the banks of the Nile from Aswan. Along this great river


The number of pyramids in ancient Nubia (Kush & today Sudan) were a total of 223, (Kerma, Napata, Nuri, Naga, and Meroe( there are more pyramids in SUDAN...than in EGYPT.

Nubian Excavations Have Revealed 100 Pyramids
Archaeologists say the Nubian Desert of northern Sudan holds mysteries to rival ancient Egypt.
 
"There is a magic beauty about these sites that is heightened by the privilege of being able to admire them alone, with the pyramids, the dunes and the sun," says Guillemette Andreu, head of antiquities at Paris' Louvre museum.
"It really sets them apart from the Egyptian pyramids, whose beauty is slightly overshadowed by the tourist crowds."


Kush, also called Nubia, was an ancient kingdom centered on the confluence of the Blue Nile, the White Nile and the River Atbara and was one of the earliest civilizations in the Nile valley. The Nubians eventually gained their independence and, at the height of their power, they turned the table on Egypt and conquered it in the 8th century BC.
 At the end of March, the Louvre will host its first exhibition on the Meroe dynasty, the last in a line of ‘black pharaohs’ that ruled Kush for more than 1,000 years until the kingdom's demise in 350 AD.
 
Meroe had three cemeteries containing more than 100 pyramids that are smaller than their Egyptian counterparts. The largest are 30 metres (98 feet) high and the angles are steep, some close to 70 degrees.Although the pyramids have been thoroughly excavated, yielding a treasure trove of knowledge about Kushite culture, many aspects of Kushite civilisation remain shrouded in mystery for archaeologists.
 
The Island of Meroë, the peninsula formed by the Nile and the Atbara courses, is an area rich in iron, which quickly becomes an essential source of wealth. It seems that the reason for the raid had been due to Aspelta's own plans for a re-invasion of Egypt

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sudan: An Exploration of Ancient Kush


Kush monuments and art display a rich combination of Pharaonic, Greco-Roman and indigenous African traditions. Tall pyramids, gigantic mud-brick buildings, rock-cut painted tombs, and ornately carved temples – all are present for us to discover. The Kushites were expelled from Egypt by the Assyrians

Great Zimbabwe, the largest ruins in Africa

 

The complex of ruins from which the modern nation of Zimbabwe took its name is one of the country’s greatest historical and cultural attractions. As Paul Tingay’s helpful guide explains, Great Zimbabwe, the largest ruins in Africa, covers almost 1,800 acres.
 
 The ruins of this complex of massive stone walls undulate across almost 1,800 acres of present-day southeastern Zimbabwe. Begun during the eleventh century A.D. by Bantu-speaking ancestors of the Shona, Great Zimbabwe was constructed and expanded for more than 300 years in a local style that eschewed rectilinearly for flowing curves.
 
 Neither the first nor the last of some 300 similar complexes located on the Zimbabwean plateau, Great Zimbabwe is set apart by the terrific scale of its structure. Its most formidable edifice, commonly referred to as the Great Enclosure, has walls as high as 36 feet extending approximately 820 feet, making it the largest ancient structure south of the Sahara Desert. In the 1800s, European travelers and English colonizers, stunned by Great Zimbabwe’s its grandeur and cunning workmanship, attributed the architecture to foreign powers. Such attributions were dismissed when archaeological investigations conducted during the first decades of the twentieth century confirmed both the antiquity of the site and its African origins.Around 850 AD, the Shona people move into the region, displacing earlier Bantu groups, with the Karanga clan living at Great Zimbabwe itself. The Karanga were expert metal workers, and a trade in gold, iron and copper was soon thriving with the Swahili and Arabs on the coast. The Karangas had a superior skill in political organization, and from a single clan, like the Romans, in time came to dominate all the surrounding peoples. In 943, the Arab voyager Al Masudi visits parts of East and South Africa and describes this powerful inland kingdom rich in gold and ivory.
 
Around 1000AD people began to build large stone buildings for their kings, positioning them away from land. Many believe this move may have occurred to escape the dangerous tsetse fly. About 150 of these great ruins similar to Great Zimbabwe exist today. Many of these have been severely impacted and almost demolished, at least 50, as a result of the hunger for gold by Europeans. The population of Great Zimbabwe, previously estimated at 1,000 before the outside dwelling areas were taken into consideration, is now believed to have been as high as 18,000.
 
The first whispered reports of a fabulous stone palace in the heart of southern Africa began dribbling into the coastal trading ports of Mozambique in the 16th century. In his 1552AD Asia, the most complete chronicle of the Portuguese conquests, J.Barros wrote of “a square fortress, masonry within and without, built of stones of marvelous size, and there appears to be no mortar joining them.”
 
Great Zimbabwe was an early example of a state in this region of southern Africa with much political, economic, and military power. With its formation, social and political organization became more hierarchical. This involved a move from village level organization to a larger, broader social and political organization resulting in the Kingdom of Great Zimbabwe. Aspirant sculptors today use the same soapstone to carve copies of the same birds and this has helped launch a stone carving craft characteristically Zimbabwean.

Dogon Cliff Village on the Bandiagara Escarpment - Mali

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogon_people

 

In 1976 Robert K. G. Temple wrote a book called The Sirius Mystery arguing that the Dogon's system reveals precise knowledge of cosmological facts only known by the development of modern astronomy, since they appear to know, from Griaule and Dieterlen's account, that Sirius was part of a binary star system, whose second star, Sirius B, a white dwarf, was however completely invisible to the human eye, (just as Digitaria is the smallest grain known to the Dogon), and that it took 50 years to complete its orbit. The existence of Sirius B had only been inferred to exist through mathematical calculations undertaken by Friedrich Bessel in 1844. Temple then argued that the Dogon's information, if traced back to ancient Egyptian sources and myth, indicated an extraterrestrial transmission of knowledge of the stars. Neither Griaule nor Dieterlen had ever made such bold claims about a putative esoteric source for the Dogon's knowledge.

Ethiopia’s Cross-Shaped Church Carved out of Unbroken Stone


What might be shocking to some European visitors is the presence of frequent ornamentation in the form of swastikas. Of course, the swastika is an ancient good-luck symbol that is still prevalent in India and other eastern countries. Various styles of Christian crosses are also carved, alongside some Muslim-influenced artwork and familiar bible-scenes carved from the living rock. At the town of Lalibela

3 Billion Year Old Manufactured Metallic Spheroids
At least 200 have been found, and extracted out of deep rock at the Wonderstone Silver Mine in South Africa, averaging 1-4 inches in dia. and composed of a nickel-steel alloy that doesn't occur naturally.
 
Some have a thin shell about a quarter inch thick, when broken open are filled with a strange spongy material that disintegrates into dust upon contact with air.
 
A complete mystery according to Roelf Marx curator of the South African Klerksdorp Museum, as the one he has on exibit rotates on its own, ,locked in a display case, free of outside vibrations.
 
The manufactured metallic spheroids have been mined out of a layer of pyrophyllite rock and geologically and by the various radio-isotope dating techniques are shown as being 2.8 - 3 billion years old, long before man, as shown at the bottom of the graph.

Pyramids in Mauritius Island

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pyramids in Mauritius Island
Seven pyramids have been identified on the African Island of Mauritius. Remarkably, in construction, they are identical to the ones found on the island of Tenerife, an island on the opposite side of the continent. It underlines the likelihood that one civilization sailed to various islands off the coast of Africa and constructed these structures.
Located in the plain called Magnien, these pyramids were always considered to be merely stone piles, thrown together in efforts to clear the fields for growing sugar cane.
