This is a compilation of historical accounts that contradict everything we have been taught about ancient America. The accounts are substantiated by the testimony of the Native Americans who lived in the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley regions of North America. American Indians speak of a people who were skilled in arts and engaged in trade whose remains could be found in the burial mounds. These legends are validated by the hundreds of miles of canals extending into the Mississippi River and the extensive copper and lead mines. Early settlers in the Ohio Valley described ancient cities with well-defined evidence of streets laid out at regular intervals and intersected at right angles with other streets. Stone macadamized roads were also evidence of an industrious people engaged in commerce. New information from the British Isles places the Celtic peoples on the Island earlier than previously believed. The Celtic pagan religion is superimposed on ancient sites in the Ohio Valley with indistinguishable characteristics. Ancient ceremonial sites in the Ohio Valley are re-examined under the looking glass of the Celtic Gods and Goddesses. The ancient mound builders practiced a cult of the dead and buried their deceased in burial mounds to act as portals to connect the living with the dead. These portals remain open today and are the gateways for much of the paranormal activity found in the Great Lakes region. While not the focus of the stories presented, many of the skeletons discovered at the ancient sites were of gigantic size. The connection to the paranormal is elaborated in the Book of Enoch, "And now the Giants, who have been begotten from body and flesh, will be called evil spirits on earth, and their dwelling-places will be upon the earth." New documentation is presented that solves the mystery of who were the Hopewell Mound Builders. The Dakota Sioux legends place them in the Ohio Valley at the time when the great geometric earthworks were being constructed. They were called "The Snake People" by the Algonquins. Identical serpent effigies are found in the historic Dakota lands that overlap the Hopewell interaction sphere. Other Indians tribes concur in their legends that this was true along with age-old place names that corroborate the Dakota Sioux as the builders of the effigy mounds in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Ohio and Indiana.

World History and the Mysteries

In this landmark series of lectures, Rudolf Steiner challenges the notion that human consciousness has in essence remained the same throughout history.

In this landmark series of lectures, Rudolf Steiner challenges the notion that human consciousness has in essence remained the same throughout history. On the contrary, we can only see the past in its true light when we study the differences in human souls during the various historical eras. Consciousness, he says, evolves constantly and we can only comprehend the present by understanding its origin in the past. Delivered in the evenings during the course of the ‘mystery act’ of the Christmas Foundation Meeting – when Rudolf Steiner not only re-founded the Anthroposophical Society but for the first time took a formal role within it – these lectures study world history in parallel with the ancient mysteries of initiation, showing how they are intimately linked. Steiner describes consciousness in the ancient East and follows the initiation principle from Babylonia to Greece, up to its influences in present-day spiritual life. He also discusses Gilgamesh and Eabani, the mysteries of Ephesus and Hibernia, and the occult relationship between the destruction by fire of the Temple of Artemis and the burning of the first Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. Published for the first time with colour plates of Steiner’s blackboard drawings, the freshly-revised text is complemented with an introduction, notes and appendices by Professor Frederick Amrine and an index.

This is a sister copy of the Ancient History of Manchuria under the same premises as the ancient scriptures of Korean history had been destroyed by the invaders. With this premise, Mosol starts to explore many issues after the Han invasion to Manchuria. He tackles lots of disputed issues that had been under the thick fog, analyzingthem in depth. Many issues relating with ancient Korean history are discussed. He proposes many new theories. The most striking new findings are that all of Three Kingdoms originated from Manchuria. Wei (??) is the descendant of the original Ye (?) people who settled around the Bohai Bay (???) under the leadership of Namryeo (??). They were close neighbors with Baekjae and were the dominant seafarers. The most disputed topic engraved in the Stele was in the Liaodong Peninsula. It is a "fresh look in the academic sense" for other scholars. Lee Mosol, MD, MPH

A History of the Laws of War Volume 2

This unique new work of reference traces the origins of the modern laws of warfare from the earliest times to the present day. Relying on written records from as far back as 2400 BCE, and using sources ranging from the Bible to Security Council Resolutions, the author pieces together the history of a subject which is almost as old as civilisation itself. The author shows that as long as humanity has been waging wars it has also been trying to find ways of legitimising different forms of combatants and ascribing rules to them, protecting civilians who are either inadvertently or intentionally caught up between them, and controlling the use of particular classes of weapons that may be used in times of conflict. Thus it is that this work is divided into three substantial parts: Volume 1 on the laws affecting combatants and captives; Volume 2 on civilians; and Volume 3 on the law of arms control. This second book on civilians examines four different topics. The first topic deals with the targetting of civilians in times of war. This discussion is one which has been largely governed by the developments of technologies which have allowed projectiles to be discharged over ever greater areas, and attempts to prevent their indiscriminate utilisation have struggled to keep pace. The second topic concerns the destruction of the natural environment, with particular regard to the utilisation of starvation as a method of warfare, and unlike the first topic, this one has rarely changed over thousands of years, although contemporary practices are beginning to represent a clear break from tradition. The third topic is concerned with the long-standing problems of civilians under the occupation of opposing military forces, where the practices of genocide, collective punishments and/or reprisals, and rape have occurred. The final topic in this volume is about the theft or destruction of the property of the enemy, in terms of either pillage or the intentional devastation of the cultural property of the opposition. As a work of reference this set of three books is unrivalled, and will be of immense benefit to scholars and practitioners researching and advising on the laws of warfare. It also tells a story which throws fascinating new light on the history of international law and on the history of warfare itself.

Our Unknown Ancient Past

This is mainly attempted by presenting knowledge of the ancient people which they are not justified to have had and similarities between very distant cultures which should not have existed. How advanced was that civilization?

Imagine the following scene: Eric Schliemann having to get the permission of scientists, telling them that, based on Homer's descriptions, he believes he can discover the mythical Troy. Besides laughing their hearts out, do you believe there would even be the slightest chance for Schliemann to have gotten their permission? And it is not just Troy nor just Knossos nor just the Mycenae, most major archaeological findings in the entire world, despite the references in the ancient texts, were a complete surprise for the scientific establishment. If that establishment had full control, all those discoveries would simply never have happened.The main purpose of this book is to present evidence supporting the theory of a relatively advanced civilization during prehistory, which was however lost due to some natural catastrophe. This is mainly attempted by presenting knowledge of the ancient people which they are not justified to have had and similarities between very distant cultures which should not have existed. How advanced was that civilization? I would say somewhat more advanced than that of Europe during the 18th century AC. Secondarily, but no less important, there are the following goals:*To reveal the huge danger our civilization faces from cosmic impacts and help realize how much more frequent natural catastrophes are than we think.*To shoot down the theories regarding Indo-Europeans & foreign invaders in the area of Greece, proving that the Greeks have preserved knowledge from events that happened in this area many thousand years before their time.*To show that mythology hides within itself big doses of historical truth as it describes real events, although often distorted by the human imagination. And this truth may be of great help to the work of science in the investigation of the unknown aspects of our past.*To trouble the reader on how much we really differ from men of past eras, even from other human species, contrary to the common belief that we are vastly "superior".*To arouse the reader's interest in the ancient mysteries which spread like a fog over the history of the human civilization.Science after all accepts that large-scale catastrophes often occur while man walked the earth, so is it really unlikely for the human civilization to have had a set-back at least once in the past? On the contrary I would say, it is probably the normal thing. In a smaller scale than the one proposed here, there have been many set-backs in the human civilization, like the domination of the Romans (when the Hellenistic Age collapsed), the collapse of the Romans themselves later on, the rise of Islam, and more.The funny part is that science accepts the Indo-European theory, meaning that there was an Indo-European / Arian race which started travelling around the world during prehistoric times spreading civilization, but left no single trace behind before mysteriously disappearing. But how far is the Indo-European theory from that of a lost civilization? Not much, as one difference is the time period and the other one is the geographical area (the present theory presupposes the crossing of the ocean). So how reasonable is it for one theory to be officially adopted by science and the other to be out of the question?We are used to rejecting anything opposed to the established views, but during the course of human history all the great pioneers did exactly that: challenged the status quo.
