Like the bones of a part-buried skeleton the ancient world is never far beneath the surface of modern Cusco, sacred city of the high Andes, as this photo by Santha Faiia shows. Santha and I are here researching "Magicians of the Gods", the sequel to "Fingerprints of this Gods". As I reported yesterday (https://plus.google.com/112099837344625020932/posts/bYMu3tmgwDA) we have been working with local historian Jesus Gamarra whose lineage goes back to Inca times and beyond. Jesus is convinced that many of the monuments and structures attributed to the Incas are in fact the work of much earlier civilisations stretching back to ante-diluvian times, and that only the latest, inferior, layers of construction are the work of the Incas. Santha's photo shows at the base of this street corner in Cusco a block of gigantic bedrock which Jesus attributes to the most ancient "Hanan Pacha" culture that he associates with Atlantis. It is overbuilt by superbly-shaped cyclopean megalithic blocks that are the characteristic handiwork of the successor "Uran Pacha" culture, and finally on the right side we can see further overbuilding in inferior masonry by the much more recent "Ukun Pacha" culture of the historical Incas. I share the view of Jesus Gamarra that archaeology has made a huge mistake in attributing all these three very different phases to the Incas within the last 700 years, and that everywhere around Cusco the fingerprints of lost civilisations more than 12,000 years old are to be seen in plain view. What is charming is the way that the life of modern Cusco goes on around these earlier layers reminding us not only of the mystery but also of the continuity of culture in the Andes.

Ever since I was a wee lass I always felt that the early human history I was force-fed in school just didn't add up, and heaven forbid questions! Thank you for making it ok to ask "why?" when it needs to be asked, and for always making it clear that we "know" nothing, but can only theorize and hypothesize, for now, at least! My boyfriend and I are so excited for "Magicians of the Gods"; your other books, and various internet information had changed both our ways of looking at humans, both current, and historic, and the way we all interact with the world. I cannot thank you enough, and keep up the great work!

What our purpose is we established long ago.

We were obliged to forget it, and our true origins, when we drank the waters of the river Lethe before we reincarnated here.

Our challenge now is to remember.

What appears to be a man-made pyramid oriented to the cardinal directions has been identified by sonar at a depth of approximately 40 metres (130 feet) under water off the Azores islands. See here for a video (Portuguese commentary) of the discovery: http://videos.sapo.pt/9j3fd6z5h8cVMiBr5sUa. The location appears to be between Sao Miguel and Terceira (the biggest Azorean Islands) and it also lies close to this underwater volcano: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dom_Jo%C3%A3o_de_Castro_Bank.

Many thanks to Pedro Branco, Eduardo Costa, Viviana Lopes, Daniel Mendes, Jo Anne Taisbin and others who have messaged me to tell me about this. The name of the discoverer, featured in the video, is Diocleciano Silva. It is not clear to me at the moment how recent the discovery is -- there is some suggestion that it might have been made several months ago -- but I would grateful for any further information that becomes available. Eduardo Costa and Daniel Mendes both sent me a link to this short article on the subject in English: http://gregdougall.wordpress.com/2013/09/21/an-undersea-pyramid-has-just-been-discovered-in-the-azores/

Looks like I might need to get my wetsuit on again! I wasn't planning any further diving research for the sequel to Fingerprints of the Gods but if this checks out I'm there!

+Graham Hancock  This is stunning. Apparently this news report was aired yesterday (this is national TV here in Portugal).

The discoverer was wondering if this might be Atlantis (obviously the Azores have always been said to be the peeks of the mountains of Atlantis).

Let me know if you need any further help in Portugal or Portuguese translations :-) Would be very happy to help in any investigation on this.

Santha and I have spent the last couple of days in the ancient city of Cusco in the high Andes of Peru, working with local historian Jesus Gamarra who continues the research of his father Alfredo Gamarra, begun more than a century ago, into the possibility that many of the so-called Inca structures of the Andes may in fact have been the work of a much earlier, lost civilisation. Santha's photograph shows me with Jesus Gamarra explaining his view of one of the anomalous structures that he dates to what he calls the Hanan Pacha period tens of thousands of years in the past. He believes that this extraordinary mass of sculpted rock was not cut with tools but was softened and moulded into shape by a lost technology using intense heat -- often leaving tell-tale marks of vitrification. He regards such structures, which are incredibly numerous in the Cuzco area, as the work of the earliest high civilisation on earth and told me several times "Hanan Pacha is Atlantis". The civilisation that followed Hanan Pacha he calls Uran Pacha, still dated to thousands of years before the time of the Incas, and to this Uran Pacha culture he attributes the famous cyclopean masonry of Sacsayhuaman which also involved a lost technology and which I will address in a future status update. Finally, and most recently, from the 13th to the 16th centuries of the present era we have the civilisation of the Incas which Jesus Gamarra calls Ukun Pacha and which is marked by workmanship greatly inferior to the previous two styles. I do not agree with all aspects of the cosmology that Jesus Gamarra uses to underwrite his analysis (for full details see this article on my website by Jan Peter de Jong: http://www.grahamhancock.com/forum/JongJP2.php ). For example I am not convinced that the earth's orbit around the sun, its mass or its gravity have changed radically over the past 100,000 years. But I think Jesus Gamarra and his father Alfredo were spot on in their identification of three distinctly different styles of architecture in the Andes and are right to attribute these to three different cultures extending far back into the night of time. For too long, as I argued in "Fingerprints of the Gods", archaeologists have been able to get away with giving the incredible megalithic  of the Andes entirely to the Incas who were merely the latest culture to use and elaborate upon these much more ancient structures. The same, I believe, will prove to be true of many other megalithic sites around the world which is why the firm dating of the gigantic stone circles of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey to 12,000 or more years ago, as I reported in earlier posts (e.g. see here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151903564817354&set=a.10151524582402354.1073741825.31260747353&type=1
and here:
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151908443427354&set=a.10151524582402354.1073741825.31260747353&type=1
and here:
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151929351272354&set=a.10151524582402354.1073741825.31260747353&type=1

As my research continues into "Magicians of the Gods", the sequel to "Fingerprints of the Gods", I will continue to post further updates here. Santha and I will be in Peru and Bolivia (where we will revisit the amazing site of Tiahuanaco) for the next couple of weeks. I expect to have much to report!

Many thanks to Bryan Foerster for this short graphic adaptation of an extract from Chapter 60 of my novel War God: War God, Nights of the Witch. Chapter adaptation by Bryan Foerster

Video runs just over 6 mins. In this chapter the witch Tozi visits the wounded Aztec warrior Guatemoc in the guise of Temaz, goddess of healing.

More on War God including several chapters free to read online at www.war-god.com.

Update. An apparently man-made pyramid oriented to the cardinal directions has been identified by sonar at a depth of approximately 40 metres (130 feet) under water off the Azores islands. See here for a video (Portuguese commentary) of the discovery: http://videos.sapo.pt/9j3fd6z5h8cVMiBr5sUa.

Many thanks to Pedro Branco, Eduardo Costa, Viviana Lopes, Daniel Mendes, Jo Anne Taisbin and others who have messaged me to tell me about this. The name of the discoverer, featured in the video, is Diocleciano Silva. According to the video the discovery was made five months ago but there has been minimal international coverage up to now. Eduardo Costa and Daniel Mendes both sent me a link to this short article on the subject in English: http://gregdougall.wordpress.com/2013/09/21/an-undersea-pyramid-has-just-been-discovered-in-the-azores/. Pedro Branco has just sent me two further links: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=c16_1380022655&comments=1 
and: http://beforeitsnews.com/beyond-science/2013/09/giant-underwater-pyramid-found-near-azores-island-associated-with-atlantis-portuguese-navy-investigating-2443658.html. The latter story states that the Portuguese navy is investigating.

Looks like I might need to get my wetsuit on again! I wasn't planning any further diving research for the sequel to Fingerprints of the Gods but if this checks out I'm there! In general what we know about rising sea levels at the end of the last Ice Age (see my book Underworld for detail) tells us that lands now under 40 metres/130 feet of water were submerged more than 12,500 years ago

The UK government has announced web-filtering plans which will block 'esoteric material' from UK internet users by the end of 2013. This censorship has worldwide implications and needs to be stopped.

The unfinished pillar still lying in the quarry at the mysterious megalithic site of Gobekli Tepe (south-east Turkey) where it was left by the builders 12,000 years ago after they discovered a fault in the rock. It is T-shaped like the majority of the finished pillars in the main enclosures. it is estimated to weigh about 50 tons. It is intriguing, and indeed paradigm-shattering that our ancestors of 12,000 years ago, supposedly hunter-gatherers, were able to contemplate moving stones of such weight.

Here is a video of ONE man moving a large 19,000 lb. concrete slab by himself with no machinery or pulleys, but just common sense and basic mechanical knowledge to lift it off the ground, stand it up, and lower it vertically into a hole.
http://youtu.be/-K7q20VzwVs
I guess that since we know that large structures were erected in diverse places in the world, the same basic mechanical knowledge to do that was not that hard to learn. That simple construction knowledge was obviously responsible for things like the Pyramids, Stonehenge and the many others, but there are those who try to make the concept mystical and supernatural for their own agendas I guess.
