**Breaking News** “UK’s answer to Tutankhamen”?

Posted On: May 9th, 2019 at 04:33

**Breaking News** England “UK’s answer to Tutankhamen”? Do these people ever stop with the sensationalist garbage? It’s a bit like finding a fishing boat at the bottom of the sea off the Cornwall coast, and hailing it as Britain’s Titanic. Click bait garbage, and it only succeeds in reducing the importance of the find. Why … Read More

Posted On: Apr 28th, 2019 at 07:26

India As we prepare for this year’s monsoon rains, last year saw dreadful floods in Kerala that took the lives of hundreds of people.

The race to preserve little-known pyramid tombs in Algeria

Posted On: Apr 25th, 2019 at 08:34

Algeria It’s thought these tombs were for the Berber elite, but no one knows for sure, according to the article. Now teams are trying to preserve the tombs by attempting to obtain World Heritage status, an application that seems unlikely in my eyes…

Another brain dead theory – this time on the Moai of Easter Island

Posted On: Apr 23rd, 2019 at 11:12

Easter Island I would say this theory is utter nonsense, but I have to make a bigger stress with my vocabulary and say it’s utter bollocks. Seriously, do these people have any intelligence at all? How do they even get funding? Are they educated, or just programmed to fill our minds with anything but actual … Read More

They’re at it again – regurgitating the outdated and defunct theory…

Posted On: Apr 21st, 2019 at 07:17

Philippines So let’s start with a quote from the article: “That could mean primitive human relatives left Africa and made it all the way to South-East Asia, something not previously thought possible.” They just can’t leave it alone, can they… Not a single scientist can think outside of the box. Not a single scientist can … Read More

**Breaking News** UK migration from Turkey around 6,000 years ago

Posted On: Apr 16th, 2019 at 04:35

United Kingdom / Great Britain / England First of all let’s not allow ourselves to be fooled by the ridiculous headline – that this migration consisted of those who built Stonehenge. It’s becoming tiring. There is no evidence these people built Stonehenge, and we will never know who did. For all we know, a group … Read More

Posted On: Apr 2nd, 2019 at 18:37

Scotland Back in December, archaeologists found a catapult ball that was likely fired at the walls of Edinburgh Castle in the siege of 1296. You would think such items are common, but this is actually a rare find since most castles don’t have excavations carried out around their perimeter.

Egypt’s 2018 archaeological discoveries

Posted On: Mar 8th, 2019 at 13:17

Egypt We very rarely receive a nicely put together compilation of discoveries from a single location, so this article is rather refreshing in this respect. Egypt had a fruitful year when it comes to new discoveries, one of the best in a decade or more, and this article places these discoveries in context. Oh, another … Read More

Bolivia’s part-underwater museum on Lake Titicaca to be opened in 2020

Posted On: Mar 2nd, 2019 at 14:48

Bolivia A part-underwater museum that will show artefacts and structures from what is thought to be the Tiahuanaco civilisation will be completed by 2020. For Bolivia, ranked the poorest country in South America, this is a magical project that will attract tens of thousands of visitors every year. I am certain that this will be … Read More

Gunung Padang, the oldest site in the world by a country mile

Posted On: Feb 23rd, 2019 at 13:48

Java, Indonesia Continuing with the rhetoric, Gunung Padang should be a name on everyone’s lips, but it isn’t… yet. Gunung Padang, or Mount Padang, is a strangely shaped, pyramidal structure located in west Java, Indonesia. The story goes something like this: Archaeologists had taken a look at the top of the pyramid and could see … Read More

The enigma of the 5.7 million-year-old hominid footprints found on Crete

Posted On: Feb 18th, 2019 at 12:40

Crete Almost following on from the previous post, interestingly this story has been posted again. I reported on this when the new first broke, and it’s another nail in the coffin for the out-of-Africa theory of human evolution. Interestingly, recently an AI computer has predicted there is another human ancestor that has yet to be … Read More

Easter Island – how DID they move those huge moai?

Posted On: Feb 15th, 2019 at 00:05

Easter Island / Chile I still find it amusing that scholars think the moai were “walked” down the hillside into their positions. Thankfully a lot of people are waking up to the often stupid theories that these “scholars” come up with, some of which makes one wonder if they have any intelligence at all. We … Read More

Egypt A restoration project in King Tutankhamun’s tomb has finally been completed after nearly a decade, and the most famous of all pharaohs is now back on display in his rightful resting place. The tomb had been closed to the public during this time to allow the restorers to clean the wall paintings and install … Read More

Have marine archaeologists found Cortés’ lost fleet?

Posted On: Jan 30th, 2019 at 15:48

Mexico / Spain An anchor thought to be from one of Hernán Cortés ships may in fact be a part of the “lost fleet” that was scuttled on the orders of the Conquistador. Exactly 500 years since the arrival of the Spanish in Mexico, we know the outcome for the indigenous populations. Not only did Cortés overthrow … Read More

Rare find – Indus Valley couple buried together, 2500 BC

Posted On: Jan 13th, 2019 at 14:55

India An extremely rare find in an Indus Valley cemetery in Haryana state, northwest India, has excited archaeologists due to the couple’s unusual position. Not only were the couple tall for the time, but the fact they “died at the same time” and were buried facing each other is very rare indeed. Of course, it … Read More

Why are we nearly hairless?

Posted On: Jan 8th, 2019 at 16:30

The World This is one of the questions I’ve been asking for many a decade. Since I do not believe the out-of-Africa theory of human evolution, one of those questions is why we have lost hair, not gained it. Think about it – if we left Africa and moved north into colder climates, one would … Read More

Find of the decade – excavations to restart at Sanauli cemetery

Posted On: Dec 26th, 2018 at 18:14

India Excavations are about to restart at Sanauli – a 4,000-year-old cemetery with one of the most extensive collections of bronze artefacts ever found. The bronze swords, daggers, and other artefacts, however, are of little interest compared to the implications from some of the other findings. Sanauli was actually discovered in 2005 but extensive archaeology … Read More

**Breaking News** Untouched tomb of Egyptian priest found in Saqqara

Posted On: Dec 16th, 2018 at 01:04

Egypt A 4,400-year-old tomb belonging to an Egyptian priest has been found in Saqqara. The main chamber itself was found empty, but five shafts have been located and this suggests great treasures may be found when they are explored by archaeologists. Thankfully the tomb has not been looted in antiquity.

The mystery of ancient Britain

Posted On: Nov 16th, 2018 at 15:20

Great Britain Many of you will know I am English and my heart is firmly implanted in this windy island, but also my posts for this great isle are few and far between. There is one reason for that – we actually know very little about our true history. Places like Avebury – the ancient … Read More
