Edgar cayce prophecy Evidence of Atlantis can be found in the Pyrenees and Morocco, and in British Honduras, Yucatan, and America.


not a big fan, but why not use the same technique to search these countries for clues or archaeological remnant of Atlantis or other.

it is a start, and i'm sure some agency (Nasa or Military for instance) already has a database of infra-red satellite images ready to be mined for info like the ones of Egypt

just wondering, this technique could actually help discover many more archaeological sites, all around the globe, don't you think?

The thing that impresses me most about this find, and the methods employed to achieve it, is that they are evidence that we are stepping, with care and great labour, toward a period of scientific and technological capability which would render our sensory equipment on a par with technologies more familiar to fans of the science fiction genre.

Being able to observe these subsurface details with such accuracy is the stuff of mastery.

There's another one. Again, I can't recognize the "elite housing" she swears she sees, but maybe she's only judging that by the size. Who knows.

Buried city revealed by satellite: May 25, 2011: www.bbc.co.uk...

An infra-red satellite image reveals the pattern of streets and houses in the buried ancient city of Tanis in Egypt. The new technique has also shown up the sites of 17 lost pyramids as well as thousands of tombs and settlements.

Looks an awful lot like the Arabia Terrace images from Mars.

indiana jones had more fun and did not need no stinking satellite to find the city of tanis.

and he found that ark of the convent so beat that!!!!!

yeah wonder how long before they are looted and plundered that is if they already havent been thousands of years ago.

billion dollar technology
millions spent digging

only to find out someone already beat you to the punch=priceless.

It is awesome, and educating in a sense.

But with the things we did in the past in Egypt I can't help but think these things may be better off non discovered.
We pillaged and desecrated something that the past inhabitants once though to be sacred and clearly made extreme measures to keep people from essentially grave robbing them. They learned this in their text yet we still proceeded not respecting any of their wishes and now we have their remains and valuables displayed in museums and those that slip through the cracks being sold on the black market.

Almost anywhere in the world it is illegal to dig up someones grave not only illegal but highly disrespectful and viewed as perverse and taboo ..what makes the difference when it comes to the tombs?

Unfortunately, in Egypt they cannot open a mummy without his being there to actually do the opening. He is the only person in Egypt allowed to open an intact mummy. I cannot imagine him not being there for something as big as a pyramid discovery.
However, I do agree with you. I think he is trying to keep even the smallest of artifacts from being lost to other countries, and has gotten a bit (!) overzealous in his job. The guy needs to relax.

Fortunately ancient looters tended to take gold and jewels and left the more valuable (to history) pottery, pollen, bones and other objects

Culturally many groups unofficially follow the the 'great grandfather' rule; most people have no idea where their great grandparents are buried or even their names.

What it really means is that tombs of people to whom no direct descendents can be determined are available for research without difficulty, those that are require a more delicate and diplomatic path

You really don't need IR satellite imagery to see the ruins. They are plainly visible in Google Earth at 30°58'11.80"N, 31°53'12.80"E (link).

True, the fact is that the earlier they did their deeds, the better. But modern day hooligans really kick the crap out of context and association.

Amazing, this city Tanis was once the capital city of Egypt, it looks like a very big and densely populated city....it needs to be excavated ASAP...

Ancients did that too, especially if the tomb was of a hated enemy, a different religious sect or they were thorough! Modern looters tend to take the pottery and bones - the swine!

It also tended to luck, sometimes someone was in the right place to ensure a tomb survived:

Consider the tomb of Cyrus

Tomb of Cyrus




During the Islamic conquest of Iran, the Arab armies came upon the tomb and planned to destroy it, considering it to be in violation of the tenets of Islam. The caretakers of the grave managed to convince the Arab command that the tomb was not built to honor Cyrus but instead housed the mother of King Solomon, thus sparing it from destruction. As a result, the inscription in the tomb was replaced by a verse of the Qur'an, and the tomb became known as Qabr-e Madar-e Sulaiman, or the tomb of the mother of Solomon. It is still widely known by that name today


*the golden casket was looted from the tomb during the chaos of the fall of the Persian empire to Alexander, allegedly Alexander restored the interior of the tomb
