It has been many years since I first wrote this page,
and it has become difficult because of DNA genetic evidence
to support this analysis worldwide
unless one would argue that Haplogroup X
is a remnant of ancient but fairly "recent" seafaring
conducted for purposes of a survey of the Earth.
Hence, one must thus regard this page as being extremely speculative.
That an ancient land survey of Europe and Africa was made is without
but whether the Atlantic was actually crossed for survey purposes
can easily be disputed, since it can not be proven at this time.
The same is true for a crossing via Alaska.
It is of course proven by numerous means
that migration from the Old World to the New World
occurred in prehistoric times,
but the number of migrations
and the period of their occurrence
is not clear.
So this remains, for the moment, just a fun idea.

Dunbavin in Picts and Ancient Britons,

It was more
likely 3117 BC than 2340 BC - as we thought when this graphic was made.
The center of
the system of measurement in the Mediterranean
was at Knossos ("the Knot", today Iraklion viz. Heraklion) on the
island of Crete,

page on the Phaistos Disk. A
special 72-degree geodetic version
of the pentagon
was used for the triangulation.
Based on these
reference points, the ancient sea-going megalithic peoples
then measured the
earth by parallelograms, each in width equivalent
to ca. 5° of
current longitude (72 x 5 degrees for 360 degrees).

(e.g. the gigantic
circle carved in solid rock and found recently near Miami, Florida)
are remnants of
this ancient gigantic surveying project to measure
earth and heaven, memory of which survives as the tale of Jason and the

and northward from Knossos through Mycenae onward to Salisbury and New Grange,
continuing on to the pyramids at Teotihuacan, further triangulated
to near the current
city of Miami,
where a geodetic wheel was in fact recently found,
thence to Memphis (perhaps the Kings Mound) and then perhaps again to
Southward, there are geodetic triangles with the Yucatan peninsula and
from there on to Nazca. Full and updated
details of the Geodetic world measurement are found at megaliths.co.uk.
As related in
detail by Peter Tompkins,
of the Great Pyramid, Galahad Books, New York, 1971,
which contains a long and brilliant geodetic appendix by Livio Catulio
there is no doubt that many of the ancient monuments of Earth were
especially Egypt - which called itself To-Mera "the land of the mr triangulation", a
interpretation first followed by the Egyptologist Karl H. Brugsch
(Tompkins, p. 292).
In Indo-European on the example of Latvian,

which measures, or is measured.
further about the role of Mekka (Mecca), p. 184:
The Moslem shrine of Mecca is 10 degrees east of the western meridian
and 10 degrees south of Behdet.
According to Stecchini the sacred black stone of the Kaaba
was originally part
of a set of four,
placed in what he calls a pyramidical triangle
from which the trigonometric functions of the shrine could be derived.
stresses the point that the Kaaba was originally a geodetic center.
The essential element of the Kaaba consisted of four stones marking a
square with diagonals
running north-south and east-west. The diagonal north-south with the
northeast and southeast
sides formed what the Egyptians call a pyramid. The angle formed by the
diagonal with the southeast
side was 36 degrees, from which Stecchini concludes that the
trigonometric functions of the shrine
were measured along the northeast side."
The Rosetta Stone was
originally surely one of these black geodetic stones
and the "ten shrines" discussed on the Rosetta Stone - in our opinion -
also related to the
geodetic and heavenly division of the 360 degree circle into ten ca. 36
degree sections. The Rosetta Stone has not been properly translated by
the Egyptologists, but we are working on this.
As Nazca shows us, these
sections would also not all be equal in size.
