The highest Maya building

This is not an unusual question from a layman but it is basically an unimportant question for an archaeologist. Anyway, the contest is usually between two buildings: Temple IV at Tikal and the Danta pyramid at El Mirador. They are from completely different time periods, several centuries apart. They also have different layout but are both roughly 70 m tall depending from where you measure.

Pyramid IV has different names, the most famous of is "The Temple of the double-headed snake" The date of construction refers to the 8 th century. This building is part of a truly unique temple complex. In Tikal it is the highest building, It is about 65 meters high.
If you continue the path to the north west of Tikal, then after about 65 kilometers almost Wash border with Mexico you stumble upon an ancient Mayan city of El Mirador. Lack of road makes this city practically inaccessible to tourists. And yet, this is perhaps the most important city of the ancient Maya. Here you can find one of the highest Maya building - complex of Dante and pyramid "La Dante" whish is about 72 meters in height, and has a temple on the top.

Nazi Ufos is it real?

t has long been suspected that Nazi leaders had more than a passing interesting in the occult and UFOs. UFO investigators now believe there was a connection between the UFO phenomenon and the Third Reich. Could the technology that grew into our modern day space program have been passed to the Germans by aliens, as some believe, and then confiscated by the U.S. government after the end of World War II? Now, our team will travel to Germany and Poland to investigate bizarre alien links that go back hundreds of years.

Etruscan cemetery photos Погребения Этрусков фото

Интересные и красивые погребальные сооружения Этрусков.

Interesting and beautiful Etruscan funerary structures.

Этруски были уверены, что Жизнь зависит от пульсации энергии "Вене", приходящей на эту землю с Того Света, из мира умерших предков. Имуществом и землей владела не отдельные люди и даже необщина в целом, а невидимые Старшие. Посредником между двумя мирами был царь-маг. Получая из иного мира "Вене" он обладал исключительным могуществом и даже, на первых порах, назывался "живым покойником", лишь затем удостаивался титула - лукумон. От него могучая сила распространялась сначала на ближайшее окружение, затем пульсация охватывала, давая жизненную энергию, не только весь народ расенов, но и на животный, растительный мир, неживую природу (скалы, источники, подземные воды), определяла климатические условия. Без энергии с Того света жизнь на этом свете прекращалась.

Умереть означало не покориться неизбежному, а осуществить с ликованием давнюю мечту: приобщиться к "Вене", вступить в чертоги света, оказаться в избранном обществе счастливых предков. Постоянным напоминанием о грядущей радости было ритуальное зеркало: медное, тщательно отполированное, оно своей вогнутой сторонойне могло отразить лица смотрящего, лишь сконцентрированный свет - облик души.

Giant croc, unbelieviable!

Paleontologist Paul Sereno and his colleagues pieced together a portrait of the monster—which they've dubbed SuperCroc—based on fossils they've collected at Gadoufaoua in Niger, a remote site in the Sahara Desert where Tuareg nomads roam.
The fossils are from an extinct species that first came to light more than 30 years ago. French paleontologists reported several skulls and other parts of the creature and named it Sarcosuchus imperator, meaning "flesh crocodile emperor."
Much about the giant croc remained a mystery, however, until Sereno's team began excavating at Gadoufaoua in 1997. "People hadn't gone back with any expedition capacity since then, so not much else was collected," said team member Hans Larsson.
The 1997 dig had barely begun when the team discovered the fossilized jaws, each as long as some members of the team. The group had traveled to the site—one of the richest fossil beds in Africa—to search for dinosaurs. But it was immediately clear that the giant jawbones had not come from a dinosaur, Sereno said. 

Paleontologist Paul Sereno,a Nationall Geographic Society Explorer-in Residence,and the skull of Sarcosuchus imperator, nicknamed SuperCroc.The behemoth's skull is about six feet (1.8 meters) long.

The giant creature, which lived 110 million years ago, during the Middle Cretaceous, grew as long as 40 feet (12 meters) and weighed as much as eight metric tons (17,500 pounds).
Its jaws alone were nearly six feet (1.8 meters) long and its more than 100 teeth so powerful that the colossal creature

Egypt decoded

Since earliest times, before even the great pyramids were built, the ancient Egyptians developed a powerful sky religion based on the apparent motions of the sun and stars. As early as the 4th millennium BC a solar calendar was established in Egypt which was calibrated on the conjunction of the heliacal (dawn) rising of the star Sirius and the summer solstice sunrise. This calendar, which can be precisely dated to 3200 BC, was also locked on the annual flooding of the Nile, Egypt's mighty river and on whose waters all life in Egypt depends. This annual miracle, and its curious conjunction with the stellar-solar 'marriage' of Sirius and the summer solstice sunrise, formed the basis upon which all subsequent religious ideas, ceremonies and rituals were developed, and provided the cosmic principles upon which the great pyramid monuments and, later on, the great temples of Egypt, were designed.

This exhibition certainly made its mark. Stepping out of the station, after a 5 a.m. start to a five hour journey, into the centre of Bern, my location was soon confirmed; every tram seemed to sport not only the coat of arms of Kanton Bern — a black bear — but the striking exhibition logo, a profile head comprising the gold covered helmet from Agris (Charente) (c. 350 BC) and the complex engraved design on one of the c. AD 700 Donore, Co. Meath, tinned bronze discs (Figure 1); though the Donore disc appears at several points in the exhibition and as end-papers to the book, it is unfortunate that it was not possible to include the actual piece in the display.

Pyramid found in a field in Michoacan is a Yacata?

Looking for a good place to sow avocado, Jose Humberto Tellez and Apolinar Piceno Guillen found a pyramid covered with weed in a plot located in Ario de Rosales municipality, Michoacan.

After retiring part of the weed from the monument, they took photographs and notified Michoacan INAH Center. Archaeologist Roberto Gonzalez Zuñiga went to Tipitarillo, observed the pictures and verified it is a Yacata, a base with a rectangular form that combines semi circular elements.

After covering the area, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) expert ratified there is one 4 meters pyramid with a 20 by 14 meters rectangular base and 6 staggered bodies. Conservation state is good.

The monument could have been part of a Classic period (300-850 AD) ceremonial center, possibly influenced by Teotihuacan, informed the specialist, adding there are other elements in the site that are currently in exploration stage.

"By its construction and materials, the structure found is similar to those at Timbangato Archaeological Zone, near Patzcuaro, which is 9 meters high with a 35 meters base".

The Yacata has 2 constructive stages; the lowest is better preserved because, apparently, in a late stage the highest was removed to conduct agricultural work. “It reached 25 meters long, 20 wide and 6 high”.

Where today is Michoacan, Purepecha culture developed during Prehispanic times, but archaeologist Gonzalez Zuñiga explained other groups inhabited there as well. “Mazahua, Nahua and Otomi peoples dwelled here, so it is difficult to affirm at the moment which of these cultures built the structure; by its location, I can determine it is not Purepecha”.

"First we have to register main features of the site by conducting a systematic cover of the area, and plan a research project", he added.

The archaeologist declared that there was awareness of the12-15 hectares site since 2004, when municipal authorities covered the area to locate possible ecotourism potential areas.

Architect Maria Lizbeth Aguilera Garibay, director of Michoacan INAH Center, declared INAH Archaeological Salvage Direction has been asked for support to register the area with a GPS system, to determine its dimension and count on a graphic description to identify the site.

A revision of a Michoacan archaeological map edited several years ago is being conducted, which has information regarding 6 sites open to public visit, where other zones will be included. State and municipal authorities work jointly in this project.

The prehistoric glue was found in Africa?

the prehistoric glue was found in Africa?

In the South African cave wes discovered prehistoric glue made from acacia gum and red ocher. It's age is about 70 thousand years.

This discovery proves that the people of the Stone Age were well known in chemistry and they could have abstract thinking.

Finsler geometry

Finsler geometry is given extraordinary branch of research. Perhaps it was its fate to be provided a breakthrough in the field of our science.
And to answer the most exciting questions, like "how and why our world is arranged?" "What are the principles and ideas are based in the Creation of the Universe?" and others.

On the theory of Pythagoras is based the foundation base on which we build our understanding of the numerical representation of everything. But if this method right?

Scientists, researchers of the Finsler geometry do sometimes the most unusual and unbelievable scientific discoveries. And the most important that they are based not on an empty spot!!

What are the secrets and mysteries keep the principles of symmetry?
How to tie the proportion of the Egyptian pyramids and Finsler geometry?
Did the creators of the pyramids knew something that we just come?

If you really want to try to answer these and many other issues, maybe it's time to make a serious step towards and begin to study of Finsler geometry?

Electricity in ancient Egypt ?

Due to the fact that the media love "from figer trumped" sensations, the official history silently waved its hands, and alternate history invites us to recall the phrase "how many people - so many opinions", I thought, why not analyze myself available to us data on this issue?

In 1937, during excavations near Baghdad German archaeologist Wilhelm Konig unearthed jars, inside which were cylinders made of copper. These cylinders were attached to the bottom of the clay pots with a layer of resin.

Koenig did not attach any importance to this jars. But after the war were resumed the excavations in Iraq. And near the ancient Sumerian city Seoevkiya scientists found glazed pottery, resembling flower vases, again.

Later flushed sensation version that they were were galvanic cells!!!

Scientists filled these vases with lemon juice and found between the iron rod and a copper cylinder a potential difference of half a volt. It was really fantastic!

These vases were an ancient electric batteries found in Iraq in early 1980. Then such ancient batteries were found on the walls of Egyptian buildings. During these years, Reinhard Habeck in the Egyptian Temple of Hathor at Dendera, about five hundred kilometers south of the Giza Plateau and 50 km north of Thebes, discovered wall paintings pear-shaped objects with wavy lines in the form of snakes inside.
From that pear-shaped objects came the cable and hoses.
And they were standing on the racks. We prove that the pear-shaped objects with wavy lines inside - this were an electrical lamp, and counters - high-voltage insulators.

Throughout there are many supporters of the electric version from all round the World!

With the assistance of Erich von Deyniken, author of the acclaimed book "Chariots of the Gods" and the other books, was built reconstruction of "Ancient Lamp". That's just one problem: the "reconstruction" - is a neon lamp placed in a plastic flask, although it feeds on such vessels, which were found in Iraq!

Each such pitcher gives half a volt. It takes a lot of similar vessels to powered lighting system. But just the opportunity of this teases the imagination!!
Or history of "Ancient Egypt" is not so ancient? This and many other things in the next article.
