22. Ancient Mysteries (Book Review) [Journals] [Aeon]
... - ostensibly from the Museum of Man in San Diego. Since he claimed to have been originally from the University of Glasgow, I inquired whether he knew MacKie at the Hunterian, and he disclaimed knowledge of any such facility, suggesting instead that it may be located in Edinburgh. I had grave doubts about his credentials. On the Vinland Map: Microscopist Walter McCrone [9 ] is quite confident of his analysis of Yale University's supposed pre-Columbus 15th century map as an early 20th century fake because of the trace presence of anatase, an allotropic crystallite form of titanium dioxide only manufactured since about 1920. However, since that time, pigment-grade anatase found in most house and industrial paints ...
23. Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock [Journals] [SIS Review]
... but I found it an exhilarating journey from place to place, showing us the author's thought processes en route. I'm not sure he should publicise his illegal climbing of the pyramid at Giza but the resulting photos taken by his intrepid wife Santha are a spectacular contribution to a beautifully produced book. He starts by quoting directly from Charles Hapgood's book Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings [1 ], which provides the starting point for Hancock's quest as well as the evidence for the findings that (a ) about 11,000 years ago there was an advanced civilisation on earth which was completely swamped, (b ) there were some survivors who tried to teach others what they remembered, ...
24. Investigating the Mound-Builders' Astronomy [Journals] [Horus]
... North America remains an intriguing study. My own project in this regard was to determine if the Grave Creek Mound Builders could have intended these works or other still identifiable formations to be used for purposes of astronomical observation. This project was not as hopeless as one might think; in 1845 Henry Schoolcraft, an early investigator, had published a map of the Grave Creek mound and its associated structures before modem development destroyed them. This map shows raised ceremonial circles, and enclosures no longer there or apparent, and also a very interesting array of raised areas which Schoolcraft called "Lookouts". If the Lookouts ever were used for a military purpose, it seems unlikely that they were ...
25. Sagan's fourth problem: Terrestrial Geology And Lunar Craters (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... Hapgood in The Path of the Pole, p. 111, gives evidence that Antarctica had no continental glacier until only a few thousand years ago. "It is rare that geological investigations receive important confirmation from archaeology; yet, in this case, it seems that this matter of deglaciation of the Ross Sea can be confirmed by an old map that has somehow survived for many thousands of years. A group of ancient maps, including this one, was the subject of an entire book which I published in 1966 under the title Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. "In some way or other, which is still not, and may never be entirely clear, this extraordinary ...
26. How Good A Navigator was Columbus? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS C & C Review 2004:2 Incorporating Workshop 2004:3 (August 2004) Home | Issue Contents How Good A Navigator was Columbus?Peter Fairlie-Clarke In his book, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, Charles Hapgood mentions that all surviving maps made in the 30 years after the discovery of the Americas place the islands of Cuba and Haiti to the north of the Tropic of Cancer, although at the present day they are around 2 degrees south of the Tropic. He showed some of these maps in his book and suggested that the navigators of the time had made an error with their latitude readings. However, navigators of the late 15th century had ...
27. How Much Did They Know? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend (Boston: Gambit, 1969; London: Macmillan, 1970); SECRETS OF THE GREAT PYRAMID by Peter Tompkins, with an appendix by Livio C. Stecchini (London: Allen Lane, ]971); HISTORICAL METROLOGY by A. E. Berriman (London: Dent, 1953); and MAPS OF THE ANCIENT SEA KINGS by Charles H. Hapgood (Philadelphia, 1966; London: Turnstone, 1977). An idea which has been gaining ground recently is that maybe the ancients - the people of the pre-scientific, and even preliterate ages - were not so ignorant, superstitious and generally "primitive" as we (for the ...
28. The Beaumont Society [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... British catastrophist author, COMYNS BEAUMONT, by offering research papers that expand and provide scientific confirmation for his revolutionary discoveries. Beaumont's challenges require the revision of all ancient "histories." The following papers are now available: "( William) Comyns Beaumont, Forgotten Catastrophist," 1977.

29. Velikovsky and the Sequence of Planetary Orbits [Journals] [Pensee]
... catastrophes; the interactions during the near-collisions have not been investigated in detail. We conclude with a discussion of two problems that are not yet satisfactorily resolved: eccentricity-damping and energy-disposal. It should be noted that the development of this article has relied greatly on an unpublished paper by Vaughan entitled "Orbits and Their Measurements" (3 ). The map of orbits presented there has been useful in several ways: as a slide-rule-like device for calculating orbital parameter values, as a graphical demonstration of the parameter interrelationships, and as a worksheet on which real and hypothetical orbits can be represented. Our units of measurement are geobasic units (4 ): the unit of mass is Earth's mass; ...
