Loudly. Amazed. No digging required. At All. No Ways.
Would need to clear shifting sands… which hadn’t…
shifted yet… indeed and in fact… as well. The…
Welcome Mat… could still be seen. Therein.
Herodotus actual words…
after the great gasp above, were so amazing,..
he even remembered… them. Them that expressed as so :
“…greater than words could tell… all of the works and buildings of the Greeks put together would certainly be inferior to this labyrinth as regards labour and expense…” Therein… also.
Labor at the Labyrinth.
The Labyrinth was there for any and all Eyes to see.
Some 300 mtrs Long… some 250 mtrs Wide.
Twin-Storied… 3,000 Rooms…
go on and on. Amazingly. Herein. Below.
This Labyrinth of Our World Legends;..
“…has twelve covered courts – six in a row facing north, six south – the gates of the one range exactly fronting the gates of the other.
Inside, the building is of two storeys and contains three thousand rooms, of which half are underground, and the other half directly above them.
I was taken through the rooms in the upper storey, so what I shall say of them is from my own observation, but the underground ones I can speak of only from report, because the Egyptians in charge refused to let me see them, as they contain the tombs of the kings who built the labyrinth, and also the tombs of the sacred crocodiles.
The upper rooms, on the contrary, I did actually see, and it is hard to believe that they are the work of men; the baffling and intricate passages from room to room and from court to court were an endless wonder to me, as we passed from a courtyard into rooms, from rooms into galleries, from galleries into more rooms and thence into yet more courtyards.
The roof of every chamber, courtyard, and gallery is, like the walls, of stone.
The walls are covered with carved figures, and each court is exquisitely built of white marble and surrounded by a colonnade…”
The Labyrinth was of massive design. By design that is. Also.
The Main Roof… appears to be of One Solid Rock Piece.
Two Levels,… All rooms… 3,000 of them.!.
connected somehow and someways through a “… baffling and intricate…”
maze of pathways that led through all the above he saw.
Gallery, Room, Courtyard.
Repeat ad infinitum almost it seems indeed. In deed
and in fact. As well.
On his guided tour. Where he was not allowed… to see…
everything. Not All.
No Kings. No Crocs. No Tombs.
Though he seems otherwise,.. quite impressed. Nonetheless.
Olden Gods get and got around… so these Legends say.
The Kutha Tablets ” LEGEND OF CREATION ” which appears originally recorded in the Chaldean/Babylonian city of Kutha at it’s Temple of Sitlam in the Sanctuary of the Sumerian GOD NERGAL;..
…tells further and more of a Race of Divine Warrior Demons; of –
” Men with the bodies of birds of the desert, human beings with the faces of ravens, these the GREAT GODS CREATED, and in the EARTH the GODS created for them a dwelling. TIAMAT gave unto them strength, their life, the MISTRESS OF THE GODS raised. In the midst of the EARTH they grew up and became GREAT and increased their number.
Seven KINGS, brothers of the same family, six thousand were there people “. (emphasis added)
The surrounding Highlands subject to long dessication and erosion.
The Valley Lake… gone… along with the End of the Ice Age.
‘Twas in Yore… An Ancient place.
Of Lake shore-front and Woodland surrounds.
It’s Peoples… long gone.
Archaeological remains… all that remain.
The Ancient Acts of Acámbaro.
In 1944 therein… an Ancient Burial Site was unearthed.
Containing some… 32,000 Artefacts and Objects.
Jade, Obsidian and Ceramics in the main.
German Archaeologist Waldemar Julsrud excavated the site.
Very near a prominent and famous Landmark;..
…Cerro del Toro. The Hill of the Bull.
The Radio Carbon Testing by Dr. Froelich Rainey in the Univ. of Pennsylvania Labs indicated some 6,000 Years of Aging.
Thermoluminescence Pottery Dating similar result.
Teeth found nearby deemed by Paleontologist Dr. George Gaylord Simson to be that of the Ice Age Horse.
Overall indications = 4000 B.C.
Some Time ago indeed it seems.
Some 6000 years of yore.
Pet Lovers… extraordinaire.
Prof. Charles H. Hapgood,.. of History and Anthropology;..
Univ. of New Hampshire took the time…
…some 18 years worth of time… to study the site.
One of his papers on the Subject…
Also… had this to say:
“… These people had close relationships with animals. We see them petting their dogs, riding wild horses or llamas without saddle or bridle, embracing large monkeys or apes and having loving relationships with reptiles. It seems possible from some of the figurines that they actually domesticated reptiles, as well as anteaters and other mammals. They are shown in friendly relations,..
…identified with animals in a way that we do not.”
Pet rapport indeed,..
…in deed and in fact… too.
(…Full Title of Prof. Hapgood Paper is as follows:..
…” Mystery in Acambaro: An Account of the Ceramic Collection of the late Waldemar Julsrud in Acambaro, G.T.O., Mexico. “…)
The collection of Statuary unearthed at Acámbero included many Ceramic Figurines.
Of Pets, Animals, Mammals, Reptiles…
Of several Types.
Having Dino… over for Dinner…
and not… as Dinner…
…of either… as far as can be seen.
Whilst Science in silence may ponder their… pet Theories;..
…the reality of the Pet Statuary finds of Acámbaro,..
…leave lil’ room for doubting.
The Ancient Peoples of Mexico either had great imaginative and scientific Modern Minds,.. knowing well in advance what Dinosaurs looked like…
