Norumbega: Washington Monument and the Roman Empire

  • 4,947

First of all, the Washington Monument everyone knows, is not the first Washington Monument out there. The true "First" was built in 1829 in Boonsboro, Maryland. This MD Washington Monument is located 52.6 miles North-West from the main Washington, DC one. I understand that Boonsboro is not DC...

Theory: enigma of the demolition of America's past

  • 1,630
  • 12
This topic has been intriguing to me but also dreadful as I continue to get an overwhelming feeling of the dark truth. My theory is this...We are aware that prior to the invasion of the British, the majority of America was split between indigenous people, Spanish, and French (primarily). They...

Tartarian City of Norumbega was conquered to become Washington, DC

  • 6,961

Had a chance to sleep on this entire topic. I think the area named Nurumbega could be a part of the Tartarian Union with the city visited by David Ingram being the City of Bega, or the City of Nurumbega. Was the city actually named Nurumbega? I do not know, could be either way. The City of Bega...

Smithsonian: Suppressed Archaeological Finds

James Smithson, an ENGLISH scientist bequeathed today's equivalent of half a million dollars in 1829 to the U.S. "for the advancement and diffusion of knowledge." Congress, as is their custom, promptly invested in some bad financial deals in Arkansas (of all places) and lost the whole wad. John...

Legendary city of Norumbega: could it be Washington, DC?

I'm gonna attempt to tackle this Norumbega, a.k.a city of Bega, Nurumberg, Nurumbega, Nurembega, Norobega, Oranbega legend. There are quite a few fascinating occurrences related to this so-called "legendary settlement" located in the northeastern part of North America. Reading the official...

The Fossil Forest of Yellowstone

I think this really can illustrate a point in regard to the age of things and petrification and fossilization of wood, wood buildings too of course. And now I do wonder what the effect would be on concrete or hard stone structures. Maybe all we have to do is look at "rock cut" remains of...

King George wins the Revolutionary War

Check out the alleged text of the Treaty of Peace signed in Paris in 1783. If one reads it, one may notice something peculiar: the alleged loser of the war is dictating the terms of peace. Since when can a loser tell the victor what to do? The Treaty of Paris, signed in Paris by representatives...

1850s Peru, Lima, Panama structures by Ephraim George Squier

Came across an interesting book published by Harper & Brothers in New York in 1877. It is titled - Peru. Incidents of travel and exploration in the land of the Incas, and was authored by Ephraim George Squier. The book contains some fairly interesting images of various structures observed by the...

Sanitation, soils and sewers.

  • 1,510

Dodgy subject as a first public post perhaps, but it's been bothering me that the lack of toilets in Versailles, and sanitation under cities of the 1800's etc. is still not covered. There IS an explanation of sorts. It would be wrong to focus on the toilet of times past as a single subject...

Jerusalem on the Catalan Atlas by Cresques vs Santo Sepulcro by Anonymous

  • 784
  • 6
Just wanted to point out an interesting difference on virtually similar 14th century maps. It is easy to dismiss little things like that, but remember that "devil is in the details." The maps I'm talking about are famous Catalan portolan type depictions of the Earth. The primary purpose of these...

1878-1884 Photography in Motion

  • 1,873

While looking for some other things today I ran across this and thought I'd share it in this thread. Since we are talking about blurry motion etc., and the quality of pictures. Wallace G. Levison photos are really fantastic. Photographs snapped amid the hustling crowds of Manhattan and the...

The Raising of Chicago in 1850s

  • 3,944
  • 35
It was found necessary, at an early period in the history of Chicago, to raise the grade of the streets. It was afterward found necessary to raise the grade still higher, and again still higher - as each building is erected, its foundation and the sidewalk adjoining have been made to correspond...

19th century photos of the US Government in session prior to 1865. Where are they?

  • 4,257
  • 46
I have mentioned this "little" issue before, so, naturally, just wanted to suggest a combined effort of sorts. When was the earliest known photograph of the United States Government in session taken? I keep on running into nothing but drawings. The best I could come up with was this 1874...

1863 Russian involvement in the US Civil War

  • 5,195
  • 29
If you share my level of ignorance, the entire involvement of Russia in the United States Civil War of 1861-1865 will come as a surprise. Hopefully, I am the only one who was oblivious to the fact. For me this journey started with the above banknote which is, in my opinion, being downplayed from...

Dating Mud Flood, and why it couldn't have been recent within 150/200 years: New England stone walls

  • 4,030
  • 34
There are 100,000s of miles of mortarless stacked stone walls all through Connecticut, NY state, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and much less in New Hampshire. It’s a southern New England phenomena and into NY state. I have many photos I have taken that show 90 degree angle turns in these walls...

Proof People Believed in Flat Earth in 1900 A.D.?

  • 4,032
  • 32
I don't care about the shape of the Earth at this point. What does intrigue me is there seem to be 2 historical timelines running adjacent to one another: one in which we have a year 1900 where the majority of people are on board with globe earth, and another in which a university professor is...

What About the East? Rig Veda, Bhagvad Mahapurana, Vanaras, Danavas, Yakshas, Pretas, Kimpurushas...

  • 1,092

What I want to discuss in this thread is something that I've noticed in all rabbit holes that one finds across the internet- an overwhelming bent towards Judeo-Christian interpretations, Biblical consequences and the like. What I feel about this is that it seems to completely ignore that, from...

Lady of Elche, and Lady of Guardamar: what are they wearing?

  • 2,985
  • 38
We have busts of two ladies wearing some bizarre looking headdresses. At least that is the version provided by the official history. Somehow, I am not so sure about the decorative purpose of these devices looking wheels attached to their head. Both busts were located in Spain, and are claimed to...
