... . In the deserts of Arizona the Indians lived well by harvesting rainfall by means of miles of low walls, a similar system to that used in the ancient Negev-Sinai. The greatest dam in early times was the Marib Dam in the Yemen, built around 800 BC and which sustained the Sabean people for 1,300 years. The great Persian Empire was underpinned by qanats, upward sloping tunnels carved across deserts into distant mountains to reach water bearing gravel beds below. The time and lives expended on these projects was several orders of magnitude greater than that expended on projects such as the pyramids. Many of these systems have been overlooked by Europeans as they spread around the world with ...

... quotes from the Koran: ' .. . till he reached his full strength and attained the age of forty years' and states that these are words which explain the tradition that Mohammed received his call to be a prophet at the age of 40 .. .'. He notes that, according to Brugsch, 40 years' in Persian today means nothing more than many years'. The name of the centipede in Persia translates as forty-foot'; the Turks call the same creature forty-footed'. Lepsius assumes that arba'im, the Hebrew for 40', may have found favour on account of its assonance with rabbim, meaning many'. He mentions and dismisses some other ...

Later historians added to this. Jesse Lasken said that there was a Persian story similar to that of Peleg. Margaret Grant said in a pamphlet by Walker, Eden is said to be in Armenia.

... terracotta army present a mystery. Life size statues of non-military persons were made with such realistic detail they seem out of place; their style is compared to that of the ancient Greeks. It was thought that Chinese sculptors did not portray the human body with such realism so early; the art appears to have been lost later. Why the Persians Sewed Their Boats National Geographic September 01, Forum Marco Polo observed that Persian boat builders sewed their planks together and wouldn't use metal fasteners, apparently because they believed the ocean floor was a giant magnet. Their boats, nevertheless, were very seaworthy and could ply between China and the east coast of Africa in a few months. Cosmic ...

... least one age designated as the first, when the Mill ground out peace and plenty. It is the Golden Age, in Latin tradition, Saturnia regna, the reign, of Saturn; in Greek, Kronos. In this dim perplexing figure there is an extraordinary concordance throughout world myths. In India it as Yama; in the Old Persian Avesta it was Yima xsaeta [n13 See H.

398. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Whilst each volume can be read separately, the reader will find that I build on and to a small degree modify the work begun in Ages in Chaos. The Genesis of Israel and Egypt and The Pyramid Age deal largely with events prior to the period covered in Ages in Chaos Vol.1 , whilst Ramessides, Medes and Persians deals with events subsequent to that time. The other volume, Arthur and Stonehenge is somewhat on its own, dealing as its name implies not with Near Eastern history, but with that of western Europe. The reader will find that I hold onto all the brilliant synchronisms and character identifications established by Velikovsky in the Ages in ...
