Is ancient history much older than we are tought?


(20 thousand years ago - year 99,9996 (3,5 hours ago) on the 100 year time-scale)

There seems to be an ever growing number of theories and voices, claiming that Human civilized history is very, very much older than we are tought by official, classic history and archeaology. Normally we are told that the Egyptians with their pyramids were one the first great civilizations of humanity, but several alternative theories think that they actually might have been the last. And it is not just Egypt. There are many comparable, sophisticated, unexplained constructions all over the world, that seem to be connected.

The simple fact that the most sophisticated and persistent constructions on earth would have been build by the earliest human civilizations, is of course by itself already strange enough.


The Pyramid Code

Ancient Egypt and the alternative story of mankind's origins.
Egyptologists tell us that the Pyramids were build around 2.500 BC. But could they be much, much older? And is it possible that the ancient builders were actually more developed than our modern society? Pyramids are not just tombs, they are sophisticated astronomical instruments and possibly an energy generating system. 

Today our planet is in trouble politically, economically, environmentally and morally. Many will agree that corrupt people hold places of power. Citizens are taxed beyond reason. And riches are amassed by an elite that controls the world. With all this evidence of sophisticated science left by the ancients, can we still uphold the belief that we are the most developed society that has ever existed on planet earth?

Did they leave magnificent structures skilfully aligned to the stars and encoded with symbols to act as a trigger for us to wake up NOW? It seems humanity is at a crucial juncture, are we ready to walk forward into a new future?


Mistery constructions the world over

Many of the unexplained features of the pyramids are also found in many other constructions the world over:

  • Machu Picchu - Peru
  • Sacsayhuamán - Peru
  • Ollantaytambo - Peru
  • Tiahuanaco - Bolivia
  • Chichen Itza - Mexico

Different although comparable mistery constructions can be found in more places:

  • Nazca lines - Peru
  • Rapa Nui - Easter Islands
  • Stonehenge - England
  • Ankor Wat - Cambodya
  • Yonaguni - Japan
  • Göbekli Tepe - Turkey


Graham Hancock

For editor and author Graham Hancock all this is not a coincidence, but a clear sign that ancient connections existed over distance and over time and that it is all part of one great global scheme, long before official history even begins. "Our ancestors are highly intelligent people, thousand years ago they precisely predicted the solar eclipse over Mexico in 1991."
His, for authorities, controversial theory explains that an ancient civilization, highly intelligent people who sailed the planet as early as 10,500 B.C., spread advanced astronomical knowledge and built ancient observatories. And they left us an important message, maybe a warning, with their structures.

I believe the best explanation is a lost civilization, lost in the night of time. I think that that civilization knew something that we do not. That the survivors after the last cataclism that brought the last ice-age to an end, went to extraordinairy lengths to keep that knowledge alive. It was fundamentally a spiritual teaching, that concered the mission of humanity here on earth not to loose ourselves in the ilusion of material things, material greed, material ambition, but to understand that material life is a precious oportunity for each individual to learn and to grow and to develop. [...]
After a century of unparalleled wickedness and bloodshed perhaps we need the ancient wisdom more than ever before.


Göbekli Tepe, ruins in Turkey of over 12,000 years old

Göbekli Tepe, is a hilltop sanctuary erected on the highest point of an elongated mountain ridge some 15 km northeast of the town of Şanlıurfa, in southeastern Turkey and 500 miles away from Istanbul, Turkey. It is the most astonishing archaeological discovery in modern times and also thought to be the oldest advanced civilization on Earth. An introduction:

"Göbekli Tepi is 12.000 years old. That is several thousand years earlier in age than Stone Henge and the Great Pyramid. And indeed, according to biblical tradition the world really began in 4.000 BC and yet that is 8.000 years later, than the foundation of Göbekli Tepi. So clearly we have here something that contradicts our normal understanding of the evolution of civilization."
[of course, GT is only older than the pyramids, if you accept their official dating!]

More detailed:

  • 300x300 meters
  • hunter-gatherers, pre-agricultural society
  • not yet excavated structures, possibly 3.000 years older


The following video on Göbekli Tepe has this introduction: "Most of the other videos on the subject material are plagiarized from other researchers data and you see they same stuff over and over again with few exceptions." This video is rather different."


Our ancient history, much older as a whole?

Maybe all of humanity's history is much older than originally thought and tought as explains the last video.
Until recently the oldest, unchallenged evidence of human hunting came from a 400,000-year-old site in Germany. The evidence came from marks left by spears on horse bones. Horses were clearly being speared and their flesh eaten. but new evidence from ancient butchery site in Tanzania shows early man used complex hunting techniques to ambush and kill antelopes, gazelles, wildebeest and other large animals at least two million years ago.
The discovery -- by anthropologist Professor Henry Bunn of Wisconsin University -- pushes back the definitive date for the beginning of systematic human hunting by hundreds of thousands of years.
