Issue 4

Here is your News Update.
It’s time again for my little chat with you.
I suppose you could call this collection a crazy-quilt jumble 
of innocent awe at our past mixed in with a little hard bitten 
In any case, it is all a sequel to the one thousand and more 
discoveries presented in my best-selling book Dead Men’s 
Thankyou for your feedback. It is tremendously valued. 
I continue to get awesome reviews from people
around the world who have been helped by the book itself
and by these updates. Let me say THANKYOU to you. 
Your response and suggestions make it all very worth-
So here is some more. Please enjoy it
This issue includes:
2. Sound vibrations 
3. Early man ‘no slouch’ 
4. Underground cities 
5. Discoveries by amateurs 
6. Town amenities 
7. Please tell a friend 
8. Tell us what you think 
In Dead Men’s Secrets, pp.319 and 320, I cited a number of 
ancient reports that suggested sound waves were used to lift 
and transport heavy objects. Here are a few more reports of 
a similar kind: 
Soon after the Spaniards discovered the ruins of Tiahuanaco 
in Bolivia (South America), “a Jesuit wrote that ‘the great 
stones one sees at Tiahuanaco were carried through the air
to the sound of a trumpet.’” (The World’s Last Mysteries. 
Pleasantville, New York: Reader’s Digest, 1981, p.138) 
Swedish aircraft designer, Henry Kjellson observed Tibetan
monks moving large stone objects up the side of a mountain 
in a ceremony involving the use of trumpets and drums. 
(Guy L. Playfair and Scott Hill, Cycles of Heaven. New York: 
St. Martin’s Press, 1978, p.38)
NASA scientists were experimenting with moving small 
particles by a procedure called “acoustic levitation”. (Omni 
magazine, November, 1980)
One is reminded of the biblical account of the fall of Jericho,
where the Israelites were ordered to shout and blow their 
trumpets at the end of the seventh circuit of the city. And the 
walls collapsed.
Early man walked upright, according to Dr Robin Crompton 
of Liverpool University. He and colleagues used a computer 
simulation to prove that our ancestors never stooped with 
knuckles grazing the ground. This would have used too much 
energy and overheated the body, he said.
A computer model based on a fossil hominid found in Ethiopia 
simulated the skeleton walking in a slouch. It fell over repeatedly. 
(The Times, Britain, September 11, 1996)
In Cappodocia, Turkey, “down under” does not refer to 
Australia but to two underground cities, Derinkuyu and 
These are underground in both the literal and metaphorical 
senses – they were used by early Christians as hiding places 
from the persecution of the Romans. Evidence suggests, 
however, that they were already in existence before that 
time. They were used as refuges against armed attack, with 
great round stones rolled across the external entrances. 
Both cities are believed to have had from 8 to 10 levels, 
although Derinkuyu is thought to have once burrowed 13 
levels deep into the earth.
There were shops and numerous amenities, including a 
sophisticated air-conditioning system to every corner of the 
city at every level. There were warrens of rooms, ranging 
from bedrooms, with “box beds” carved from the rock 
walls, to kitchens and storerooms, and even stabling 
quarters for animals.
Since these were complete social communities, graves are 
also to be found. Water was no problem, as shafts were 
sunk as wells to take advantage of  supplies even deeper 
below the earth’s surface.
These were towns of a vast complexity, linked by a maze 
of tunnels.
Actually, Derinkuyu and Kaymakli are not the only 
underground city remains in this region. Others include 
Ozkonak, Acigol, Mazikoy and Tatlarin. It is claimed that 
connecting routes linked at least 14 underground cities, 
capable of housing no less than 1,200,000 people.
I have explored several levels of one of these. A person is 
filled with amazement at how whole communities could 
have managed to live, hidden from the sun and the fresh air, 
despite the cities’ highly developed ventilation systems – 
not just for a month or a year, but, as they did, for whole 
lifetimes. That’s right! Much of the population never came 
to the surface during their entire life!
We tend to regard professionals as the only people worth 
taking notice of, when it comes to discoveries being made in 
their field. If an amateur makes a statement – or even a 
discovery – it is commonly regarded with suspicion. 
On this point, I recall that on July 29, 1997, an amateur 
astronomer in Adelaide, Australia, announced the discovery 
of a new comet. Up to that date, 71 comets had been 
discovered by amateurs during the twentieth century!
Did you know that some of the world’s great archaeological 
discoveries have been made by amateurs?
When Heinrich Schliemann said he’d discovered Troy, the 
scientific community snubbed him. For years!
And there was John Lloyd Stephens who discovered 
wondrous things among the Mayan ruins of Central 
America. Another amateur.
It was Champollion the “amateur” who got Egyptology 
One could say that our knowledge has been deepened 
more through the efforts of amateurs like Fawcett, 
Schliemann and Heyerdahl, than through the efforts of 
franchised experts.
The cause of science is not served by automatic 
ridicule of amateurs. Any person who so behaves is an 
enemy of science. He may be listed in Who’s Who, but 
he doesn’t know what’s what.
Both Schliemann (who discovered Troy) and Carter 
(who found Tutankhamen’s tomb) were criticised by the 
academia of their day. It is worth noting, however, that 
while the world remembers the names of the two men 
Schliemann and Carter – no one remembers the names of 
their critics!
Something to think about.
The ancient Romans used GLASS WINDOW PANES some 
2 feet square – yet from the Dark Ages to the 16th century, 
window glass was unknown in Britain.
CENTRAL HEATING, using methods similar to present day 
PIPES AND RADIATORS, and similar to our 
UNDERFLOOR HEATING of today, were used by the 
Ancient Rome (315 AD) had 144 PUBLIC TOILETS 
FLUSHED by the public water supply. 
The above reports are an update to the best-seller Dead 
Men’s Secrets – surprising discoveries in lost cities of 
the dead. Seafloor, jungle and desert sands give up a 
thousand forgotten secrets. Technology that vanished.
