Ellen Lloyd - AncientPages.com - Today, two ancient scientists, Eratosthenes Of Cyrene and Posidonius of Rhodes are famous for their attempts to calculate the circumference of the Earth. As previously mentioned on Ancient Pages, these two ancient scholars did a very good job and they almost got the numbers right. It was by no means an easy task, considering they did not have access to proper technology, but their achievements are nothing compared to what we are about to discover.
Thousands of years ago, “someone” took time to measure our planet in detail. The idea that Neolithic people were capable of long distance geographic surveys is far-fetched, but a very advanced, ancient lost civilization possessed knowledge of the Earth’s topography and this information has been passed down from generation to generation.
Were ancient civilizations more advanced than scientists think? The amazing accomplishments of the ancients cannot be easily ignored, especially not when almost all ancient structures raised by our ancestors tell the same story.
What to many people seems clear is that a mysterious, unknown ancient civilization possessed highly advanced technology and we find physical traces of their sophisticated knowledge all over the world, in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and the Americas. All of their incredible geographic surveys were based on the same principle and conducted for the same purpose. Why did this unknown ancient civilization undertake such an enormous task?
In this article we examine evidence of highly sophisticated measurements described in ancient myths, legends and sacred books. We also take a closer look at physical evidence that confirms our ancestors’ stories and reveals the major purpose behind these prehistoric geographic surveys.
