Too true Flames. You make very good points.

Same with Lemuria. There may be a scientific "paleo" explanation that greatly "proves" that such places that are labeled Atlantis, Lemuria and Mu existed. But there were probably many more.

Can we consider that there was a romanticized elaboration concerning these types of places...turning them into the mystical when they were actually far from it?

This book that I have recommended before about Lemuria does a great job of showing how the evolution of the idea of Lemuria took shape and became what it is today. It went from a great legit scientific discovery and morphed into something beyond that. According to this book it was the Theosophists that really changed the perception of Lemuria more than any other influence. And that influence also could have the most doubt cast upon it as well and for good reason.

I recommend this book to you Flames because I feel the author really dissects the concept of Lemuria in a very similar fashion you address Atlantis in your post.

Barnsley... Valley of T'ut Kings as Egyptian mummy is dug up
WHEN it comes to bragging the people of Barnsley haven’t had too much to shout about - until now.

it turns out Barnsley has enjoyed a secret and barely believable past.

It has just been revealed that around 2,000 years ago it was home to ancient Egyptians and there may even be mummies buried beneath the streets.
Stunned archaeologists have found a mummy cast which covered the embalmed, linen-wrapped body of a child who was buried around 300AD.

They say it proves that embalming and mummifying customs took place in South Yorkshire.

They have also uncovered bronze statues of Egyptian gods.

Forensic tests on ancient human bones found in the area have proved that some of those buried around Barnsley in ancient times had been born and raised in North Africa.It is believed the first Egyptian settlers ended up in and around Barnsley of all places thanks to their habit of following the Roman Army on its all-conquering rampage across Europe, arriving in Britain in 43AD.

“Mummies in Yorkshire, how good does it get?” said Egyptologist Joann Fletcher, a professor of archaeology at the University of York.

“You don’t think 2,000 years ago ancient Egyptians came to Yorkshire, but they did.”

Due to Yorkshire’s damp climate, the Egyptians living there wrapped the bodies of their dead in linen and then encased the corpse in a layer of gypsum plaster.

Delighted by the discovery of the mummy cast from the child’s grave, Professor Fletcher, who was part of the expedition which claimed to have found the mummy of Egypt’s Queen Nefertiti in the Valley of the Kings in Luxor in 2003, is now dreaming of finding a fully preserved mummy somewhere near Barnsley, but fears it could a decade of digging to find.
We’ve only just started looking to be honest, because until very recently who knew these existed?” she said.

“There’s certainly evidence that Romans in our part of the world were embalming and wrapping in linen their dead, according to Egyptian customs.

“Analysis on some bones shows these individuals were born and raised in North Africa.

“That’s a scientific fact so it really does widen horizons, in some ways it blows your mind.There is evidence around Thurnscoe of burial pits and more work needs to be done because this is just the tip of the iceberg. Come back in 10 years.”

The gypsum mummy cast from the child’s grave is among a selection of exhibits now on show at the Experience Barnsley Museum in Barnsley Town Hall.

Egypt became part of the Roman Empire when Mark Antony and his lover Cleopatra, the last pharaoh, were defeated at the Battle of Actium in 31 BC.

One of the silver coins minted in Rome to pay the legionnaires who fought in that historic victory has been found in Darfield, just outside Barnsley.

Ancient artefacts found for contemplation about ancient history
Haven't heard any press about the recent bosnian pyramids ,  are they still digging,  have they been muffled,  or was there nothing found

absolutely worth a watch this one for the update and gathering of these artefacts presentation

this is one of the better ones from earlier histeria  channel , some contents brings to mind the vitrified forts in scotland and northern europe in which the vitrification has never been satisfactory explained and so these places have been left to natures overgrowth, many left to be hidden out of sight by trees and undergrowths , now like an allegoric representation of the repressed shadow of the western scientist

Libyan / egyptian green glass recently  found in the desert at libyan egyptian border  =  official reason for this anomaly =  it must have been a meteorite

When the first atomic bomb exploded in New Mexico, the desert sand turned to fused green glass. This fact, according to the magazine Free World, has given certain archaeologists a turn. They have been digging in the ancient Euphrates Valley and have uncovered a layer of agrarian culture 8,000 years old, and a layer of herdsman culture much older, and a still older caveman culture. Recently, they reached another layer of fused green glass'.

Egyptian Tektites:

One of the strangest mysteries of ancient Egypt is that of the great glass sheets that were only discovered in 1932. In December of that year, Patrick Clayton, a surveyor for the Egyptian Geological Survey, was driving among the dunes of the Great Sand Sea near the Saad Plateau in the virtually uninhabited area just north of the south-western corner of Egypt, when he heard his tyres crunch on something that wasn't sand. It turned out to be large pieces of marvelously clear, yellow-green glass.

In fact, this wasn't just any ordinary glass, but ultra-pure glass that was an astonishing 98 per cent silica. Clayton wasn't the first person to come across this field of glass, as various 'prehistoric' hunters and nomads had obviously also found the now-famous Libyan Desert Glass (LDG). The glass had been used in the past to make knives and sharp-edged tools as well as other objects. A carved scarab of LDG was even found in Tutankhamen's tomb, indicating that the glass was sometimes used for jewellery.

An article by Giles Wright in the British science magazine New  Scientist (July 10, 1999), entitled "The Riddle of the Sands", says that LDG is the purest natural silica glass ever found. Over a thousand tonnes of it are strewn across hundreds of kilometres of bleak desert. Some of the chunks weigh 26 kilograms, but most LDG exists in smaller, angular pieces--looking like shards left when a giant green bottle was smashed by colossal forces.

According to the article, LDG, pure as it is, does contain tiny bubbles, white wisps and inky black swirls. The whitish inclusions consist of refractory minerals such as cristobalite. The ink-like swirls, though, are rich in iridium, which is diagnostic of an extraterrestrial impact such as a meteorite or comet, according to conventional wisdom. The general theory is that the glass was created by the searing, sand-melting impact of a cosmic projectile.

However, there are serious problems with this theory, says Wright, and many mysteries concerning this stretch of desert containing the pure glass. The main problem: Where did this immense amount of widely dispersed glass shards come from? There is no evidence of an impact crater of any kind; the surface of the Great Sand Sea shows no sign of a giant crater, and neither do microwave probes made deep into the sand by satellite radar.



Libyan Tektites:

An article entitled "Dating the Libyan Desert Silica-Glass" appeared in the British journal Nature (no. 170) in 1952. Said the author, Kenneth Oakley.
Pieces of natural silica-glass up to 16 lb in weight occur scattered sparsely in an oval area, measuring 130 km north to south and 53 km from east to west, in the Sand Sea of the Libyan Desert. This remarkable material, which is almost pure (97 per cent silica), relatively light (sp. gin. 2.21), clear and yellowish-green in colour, has the qualities of a gemstone. It was discovered by the Egyptian Survey Expedition under Mr P.A. Clayton in 1932, and was thoroughly investigated by Dr L.J. Spencer, who joined a special expedition of the Survey for this purpose in 1934.

The pieces are found in sand-free corridors between north-south dune ridges, about 100 m high and 2-5 km apart. These corridors or "streets" have a rubbly surface, rather like that of a "speedway" track, formed by angular gravel and red loamy weathering debris overlying Nubian sandstone. The pieces of glass lie on this surface or partly embedded in it. Only a few small fragments were found below the surface, and none deeper than about one metre. All the pieces on the surface have been pitted or smoothed by sand-blast. The distribution of the glass is patchy.

While undoubtedly natural, the origin of the Libyan silica-glass is uncertain. In its constitution it resembles the tektites of supposed cosmic origin, but these are much smaller. Tektites are usually black, although one variety found in Bohemia and Moravia and known as moldavite is clear deep-green. The Libyan silica-glass has also been compared with the glass formed by the fusion of sand in the heat generated by the fall of a great meteorite; for example, at Wabar in Arabia and at Henbury in central Australia.

Reporting the findings of his expedition, Dr Spencer said that he had not been able to trace the Libyan glass to any source; no fragments of meteorites or indications of meteorite craters could be found in the area of its distribution. He said: "It seemed easier to assume that it had simply fallen from the sky."

It would be of considerable interest if the time of origin or arrival of the silica-glass in the Sand Sea could be determined geologically or archaeologically. Its restriction to the surface or top layer of a superficial deposit suggests that it is not of great antiquity from the geological point of view. On the other hand, it has clearly been there since prehistoric times. Some of the flakes were submitted to Egyptologists in Cairo, who regarded them as "late Neolithic or pre-dynastic".

I read an article some time ago about this find.
Who knows what else in the area has been covered over in concrete foundations and condominiums.
