“The Northern Toltec in the American Southwest”
Authors: Dr Roberto Peron, Barb Benson, Rob L.
Dr. Cyclone Covey was a history professor at Wake Forest University in North Carolina and he had some interesting theories. One book he authored entitled “Calalus” tells of what he believes was a Roman Jewish colony in Arizona northeast of Tucson. He believed the “Tucson Artifacts” were real although most scholars believe them to be fakes. I’ll be posting about these artifacts after I examine them myself very soon.
Portrait of the Toltec emperor Tecpancaltzin lztaccaltzin, 9th ruler of the Toltecs
Covey believed various Jews sailed from the Portuguese port of Porto Cale and founded a city in Florida which they named “Cale.” Today this alleged ancient settlement is known as Ocala which is in North-Central Florida. He also held the view that some Jews escaped Rome and they also set sail to the Americas from Porto Cale in Portugal. Once across the Atlantic they established a Jewish-Roman colony in 775 A. D. near Tucson, Arizona. Further, he believes that during this time the Toltec controlled most of what is today Arizona and New Mexico and that they continuously fought with these new arrivals from Europe until decades later when they finally defeated them and took the Jews captive after destroying their two cities in Arizona. So, these northern Toltec took the Jewish-Roman survivors captive and marched them to Tula, the Toltec capital in Mexico. He also points out that the Toltec emperor at this time was white skinned with a beard! That the Toltec may have dominated Arizona and New Mexico is believed to be so by several researchers so Covey’s thesis is not all that far-fetched! Continue Reading
Did an ancient explorer make it to the Arctic back in 325 BC? Sounds incredible doesn’t it? His name was Pytheas of Massalia and he’s believed to have gone to the Arctic and returned homw safely. Problem was when he got back home no one believed him and they thought his mad!
Back in his times most people believed that the Sun was jerked around in the sky by the gods and when Pytheas described a place where the Sun didn’t shine all winter lng, a place covered in permafrost and frozen waters with icebergs no one believed him for an astounding 1000 years!
Unfortunately, anything that Pytheas may have written about his trek to the regions of ice is lost and most of what we know about his trek comes from the writings of people who didn’t believe him. This man was an explorer and sailor btw. To get to the Arctic he sailed through the Pillars of Hercules (Strait of Gibralter) and to do so he had to manage to get past the Carthaginian army who had a blockade in the area at the time!

A new study and find has come out and in my mind it is MAJOR NEWS when it comes to ancient human ancestors being in North America. The San Diego Natural History Museum has announced that a recent Mastodon discovery shakes up our beliefs of when early man came to North America and the evidence comes from broken bones and rocks.
At an Ice Age site in San Diego, CA bones 130 kyr and teeth from a mastodon show evidence of EARLY HUMAN modification. Analysis of these finds dramatically alters the timeline for when humans first arrived in N. America. The report was published today in the journal “Nature.”
Museum paleontologists discovered the remains during routine work to clear the way for a new freeway expansion in the area. The discovery includes bones, teeth, and tusks and many of them have been sharply broken. They were buried alongside large stones that apparently were used as hammer stones and anvils. This makes the site the oldest in situ and well documented site in North America according to the museum.
According to Judy Gradwohl who is president and CEO of the Museum this discovery rewrites our understanding of when “humans reached the New World.” She went on to say, “The evidence we found at this site indicates that some HOMININ SPECIES was living in North America 115,000 YEARS EARLIER than previously thought.” Did you get that? SOME HOMININ SPECIES! That’s CODE TALK! Why didn’t she say Homo sapiens, or modern humans, or something along those lines? Instead she uses the phrase “some hominin species.” Why” Because I bet they suspicion this “hominin species” was NOT modern humans!!
Gradwohl went on to state, “This rasises intriguing questions about how these EARLY HUMANS arrived here and WHO THEY WERE.” In other words they don’t know who these early humans were and they don’t even know if they were early modern humans are some more archaic human like HOMO ERECTUS! And I’m betting my money on HOMO ERECTUS! In my mind this is evidence of this species being in the Americas around 100 kya!! Continue Reading
In a recent post on this blog we learned about the Haida people of British Columbia, Canada and how their oral tradition speaks of their ancestors sailing across the Pacific to Hawaii and even to Asia. The post I’m referring to is at:
From British Columbia to Hawaii is 2,763 miles and from Hawaii to Japan is about 4, 116 miles. So what we are talking about here is a distance between BC and Japan of about 6,879 miles and that is a pretty long distance. Question is when the Haida ancestors were doing all of this sailing upon the Pacific waters was the distance between these lands as long as it is today?
I bring this subject up because there is something known as “The Expanding Earth Hypothesis” which basically says our planet is growing and has grown bigger and bigger since the origins of our planet began. This theory has been mostly rejected by mainstream scientists today but let’s take a look at it for ourselves. Continue Reading
The Pesse Canoe, Netherlands, 8 kyr
The world’s oldest KNOWN boat is actually a canoe that basically is nothing more than a hollowed out log. It’s known as the “Pesse Canoe” and is dated at between 11-9.5 kya. It is kept in the Netherlands inside the Drents Museum. The Pesse Canoe is a dugout measuring 117 inches (9.75 ft) long and 17 inches wide. The material is from a single Scottish pine log. Marks inside the canoe indicate it was hallowed out using flint tools or antler tools.
This canoe was first discovered in 1955 during construction of a highway in the Netherlands near the village of Pesse, hence its name. It was found in a peat bog when the peat was being removed by roadway construction workers. It was located about six and one-half feet below the surface but was thought to only be an ancient log and nothing more. Upon closer inspection by a farmer named Hendrik Wanders it was determined to be a canoe. So was this thing seaworthy? That’s been an ongoing debate since it was found! Archaeologist Jaap Beuker made a replica of the canoe in 2011 and paddled the replica on the water successfully. So, it did float and it was seaworthy! Continue Reading
This post was formerly entitled: “The Pericues: Proof of Homo erectus in Baja”—–
The Pericues also known as the Pericu, Cora, and Edues were the aboriginal inhabitants of the Cape Region which is the southernmost end of Baja California Sur, Mexico. Sine the late 18th century, sadly, they have been culturally and linguistically extinct.
Baja California Native American Tribes
Of special interest here is that these people had very distinctive hyperdolichocephic skulls. That is, they were known for their distinctive long headed skulls. Some researchers believe that the Pericu were either were trans-Pacific migrants or remnants of some of the oldest colonizers of the New World. Their burials feature remains painted with red ochre (Las Palmas burial complex) which sometimes were deposited in caves or under rock shelters. These people used the atlatl and darts along with the bow and arrow up through the 17th century. When the Spanish came to the Americas they enslaved the Pericu until they revolted in 1734. The revolt lasted for two years until the Spanish reasserted authority over them. Many of the Pericu died of diseases brought by the Spanish as well. Continue Reading
NOTE: This is a rather long read but there is a lot of info I wanted to include in this post so grab that diet soda and box of bon bons, get comfortable in your easy chair and indulge 🙂
One of my favorite land is Australia. The “land down under” is nothing short of magnificent! We are going to explore this fantastic land in upcoming posts because there is some geology and prehistoric history there that is significant although it has been much ignored by academia. For starters I want to take a look at what I call the “Bradshaw Boat.” But first we need a bit of history………
Dr. Grahame Walsh: Researcher, Lone Wolf, & Rebel
Grahame Leslie Walsh was the only real expert on the Bradshaw Art (Guion Guion) in which the “Bradshaw Boat” is to be found. He documents and studied this ancient rock art for over 40 years. He was born in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia in 1944 and sadly passed away in Brisbane in 2007. He was both a scholar and a Bushman, an outsider and an aesthete. He was particularly drawn to studying Aboriginal Australia. Walsh had a rather “maverick style” and a lone-wolf persona. He had a wide range of interests and was described by some as having been a “self-created man wholly free from external influences.” He pursued a life of field research hating the idea of sitting behind some academic desk. When he was in his teens a friend took him to Carnarvon Gorge to see a rock art paradise. To Walsh this site was like Camelot! For years after he operated a service station at Injune which is near the entrance to the gorge national park and while doing so he developed a keen interest in nature, geology, and the areas Aboriginal traditions.
