... brilliant turquoise tail, and that of the serpent or coatl. (23) Thus two of the most common comet glyphs are brought together in the name of the god. And the combined hieroglyphs clearly have a long history. The earliest known version of the plumed serpent pre-dates the Aztecs by many centuries, appearing on monuments of the Formative Olmecs. (24) Conceptually, the avian serpent reached significantly beyond Aztec culture. The Maya god Kukulkan carries an equivalent meaning, as does the Quiché figure, Gucumatz. (25) The same figure appears to have entered Zuni ritual as the plumed serpent Kolowisi, while Hopi tradition celebrates the plumed serpent Palulukong. (26) Though ...

... of the Bible and the inspiration for the cosmologies of the ancient world. Velikovsky culled his reconstruction from the Japanese, Chinese, and Hindu civilisations, the Iranian, Sumerian, Assyrian, Hitto-Chaldean, Israelite, and Egyptian records; the Etruscan, Attic, and Roman theogonies and philosophies; Scandinavian and Icelandic epics, Mayan, Toltec, and Olmec art and legends. ' (1 ) This picture he drew from them was that around 1500 BC the Earth came into disastrous conflict with the planet Venus - then on an elliptical orbit and with a tremendous cometary tail after originating by fission from Jupiter at a considerably earlier date. The phenomena caused by this catastrophe caused the Biblical miracles ...

... by Paul Devereux Vega, London, 2003. Reviewed by Phillip Clapham This book is aimed at the British popular readership – and not at academics as such. Devereux is the author of over 20 books and has been a researcher of ancient mysteries for many years. The book contains chapters on topics related to ancient civilisations, such as the Olmecs, sky temples, Norse relics, Chinese connections, riddles of archaeology, shamans, sacred landscapes and the effigy mounds. However, one of the biggest mysteries of all is the peopling of the Americas and this is the subject of the initial 40 pages of the book. There is some evidence of coastal travel between Asia and North ...

Whilst Velikovsky did not deny that some oil deposits were derived from terrestrial organic matter, this evidence does appear contrary to his assertion that some deposits had an extra-terrestrial origin. Or does it? How Much Did They Know?source: NEW SCIENTIST 23.2 .84, p.24 Studies of an Olmec mirror judged to be about 3000 years old indicate that the polishing techniques were almost as sophisticated as those of today's amateur telescope makers. Strangely, the mirrors were not made of a local stone but of magnetite which is found only on the west coast of Mexico, thousands of miles from the Olmec homeland around Veracruz. Today's scientists remain ...

... retained from a very much older system of dating. The origins of the Mayan Calendar Round have been traced back at least as far as the Zapotecs from Monte Alban in the Valley of Oaxaca, where monuments from about 600BC start to record dates using this system [1 ]. Whittaker states that the earliest evidence is found in the earlier Olmec civilisation at Oxtotitlan in Guerra, dated to around 900-700 BC [2 ]. Certainly, the use of the 260 day cycle spread from Monte Alban to all the ancient Mesoamerican civilisations; the Spanish conquistadors found the system still in use by the Aztecs in the 16th century. The Calendar Round of the Classic period was based on a ...

... outside of the Near East; and the Berbers- like their linguistic cousins the Egyptians and the Cushites- are believed always to have lived in northern Africa.(3 ) The most interesting question raised by Van Sertima, I think, is that of the status of the Blacks in early America, especially (though not exclusively) in Olmec Mexico. Did they come primarily as masters of White crews, as independent voyagers, as mercenary workers and soldiers, or as slaves of White masters? The first of these answers seems to be the one favoured by R. A. Jairazbhoy,(4 ) the second by Van Sertima himself, the third by James Bailey, ...
