More > archaeologists have invented over 1500 years of history that simply never existed. The evidence includes astronomical Sothic dating, radiocarbon dating, pottery dating, tin bronze production, iron metallurgy as it relates to cutting diorite and other hard rock. In addition, erosion of Egyptian monuments along with agronomy and soil salinization, climatology, agriculture, as well as archaeological and geological stratigraphy all support the conclusion that at least 1500 years of ancient history are a mirage. Glass development, domestication of the horse and ass, Hebrew, Greek, and Hittite linguistics, forensic studies of the teeth of ancient peoples prove that this millennium and a half or more are historical fiction.< Less

The gods... More > send him a companion, Enkidu, and together two heroes undertake mighty deeds. Then Enkidu dies, and Gilgamesh abandons his royal duties and goes in search of eternal life. The Epic of Gilgamesh is, perhaps, the oldest written story on Earth. It comes to us from Ancient Sumeria, and was originally written on 12 clay tablets in cunieform script. It is about the adventures of the historical King of Uruk.

This translation is based on the "standard" Akkadian "edition", but is filled in with excerpts from the Old Babylonian where necessary.."< Less

More > late 1860s under the direction of Edward Wardle and Mark Amos, and it was soon taken over by the River Loddon and Tributaries Water Supply Company. The race system continued under various guises until it was finally decommissioned in the early 1960s, representing almost a century of operation.

The site and its landscape setting tell us much about the crucial role of water supply in gold mining, the cultural history of mining and the role of gold seekers as water engineers.< Less
