Ancient Signs

The Alphabet & the Origins of Writing

My new print & ebook
shows that modern alphabets are based on ancient alphabets rooted in syllabic scripts of the ancient world (Sumer, Egypt, Iran, Anatolia, Crete, Cyprus)

Canary Islands
The Guanche or Canario Peoples


My early speculations about the Canary Islands have since been supplanted by Y-DNA and mt-DNA results See familiytree.dna for some of the "clan" data, and Leherensuge and Dienekes for more detail, which shows that the aboriginals of the Canary Islands are dominated by haplogroups E-M81, E-M78, J-M267.

The Guanches themselves show no evidence of a sea-going culture or attendant skills, a fact which has greatly puzzled observers, because they could only have gotten there via seaworthy vessels.

The answer may be that they were set out on the island in colonization efforts such as are described for the Periplus of Hanno.

What follows is my material from many years ago, somewhat amended since then:

Out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean are the Canary Islands
with an aboriginal population
called the Guanches or Canarios
some have said "allegedly of Cro-Magnon origin"
having blondish hair, bluish or grayish eyes
and having clear remnants of a pictographic script.

The scholars think - erroneously - that the Guanches
came right across from the adjoining coast of Africa,
in what must be one of the most unusual theories
ever produced in science,
since this would have been impossible
without boats and ships
none of which are in evidence on the opposing African side
of the water for this period of history.

I have been to the Canary Islands.
Only sea-going vessels
would have managed the trip,

there and back, against the strong currents.

This makes it impossible for Cro-Magnon man

to have settled there before ocean navigation.

What we do find
is that the name CANARIO or GANARIO
- the name of the inhabitants of the Canary Islands -
finds its comparable among another "pyramid-building" culture.

The Northern Empire of the INCAS
in what is now central highland Ecuador
was called CANAR
and this is where sea-going vessels
from the Canary Islands,
being carried by the Gulf Stream
would have landed in ancient days.

I presume the word is a combination
of the enclitic particle KA plus NAR.

Indeed, as noted in the Encyclopaedia Britannica,
"the Romans learned of the Canaries
through Juba II, king of Mauritania,
whose account of an expedition
[allegedly ca. 40 BC]

to the islands was preserved
by the writers Plutarch and Pliny the elder."

Interesting is that the Guanche pictographs
seem to stem
from the Pharaonic Old Kingdom period
and describe their King as being

"Ruler, On Earth, Under Heaven"

just as on the Egyptian hieroglyphs,
where the "two lands of Egypt" unification
refers to earth and heaven.

Recently Thor Heyerdahl has found
remnants of pyramids on the Canary Islands
which can only have come from an ancient
"pyramid-building" culture
and from a people capable of building ships
and navigating the oceans.
