On this day, 2,632 years ago, the ancient metropolis of Nineveh fell. “ ABC 3 ” is a historiographical text from ancient Babylonia which records August 10th 612 BC as the date of this dramatic occurrence. At that time, Nineveh was the largest city in the world and the capital of Assyria. This all came to an abrupt end when Nabopolassar, the Chaldean king of Babylonia and a central figure in the fall of the Neo-Assyrian Empire, siezed Nineveh. This marked what historians know as one of the most shocking events in ancient history: The “First” Fall of Nineveh. The “second” Fall of Nineveh occurred in 2015 with more destruction by ISIS.
The Discovery of Nineveh: A Unparalleled Archaeological Find
Ancient Mesopotamia was a cradle of civilization in the northern part of western Asia’s Fertile Crescent, corresponding to modern Iraq, Kuwait, eastern Syria, southeastern Turkey and areas along the Turkish–Syrian and Iran–Iraq borders. In 1839, Paul-Émile Botta of France excavated a series of mounds in the Iraqi desert that led to the incredible discovery of Nineveh, the vast ancient Assyrian city of Upper Mesopotamia located on the outskirts of modern-day Mosul in northern Iraq.
This discovery in mid-19th-century Europe was truly amazing, because it meant that at least one of the ancient cities and cultures mentioned in the Bible actually existed. This gave the Holy Bible a breath of newfound esteem at a time when scientists were demanding the empirical testing of supernatural claims, replacing time worn myths with logic and reason. The discovery of ancient Nineveh changed everything.
Referred to locally as the “Druid Stone” or “Altar Stone,” this monumental stone stands about 4 meters (13 feet) high on private land in the village of Blidworth, England, and is viewable from a public footpath. A man-made passage has been cut through the center of the rock. A British archaeoastronomer, expert in exploring skyscapes and how prehistoric peoples engaged with the sky, has considered how this immense rock “might” have been used by the pre-Romanic druids.

Druids, Druids Everywhere
The druids were high-ranking religious leaders and social elites in pre-Christian European Celtic cultures. They served as legal authorities, doctors, keepers of poems and spiritual traditions, and advisors to political leaders, conducting their ritual affairs in open air settings like earlier Neolithic standing stone circles, natural grottoes and caves.
However, just because the Blidworth Druid Stone is known as a druid stone, does not mean it had anything to do with the druids. In Victorian England , as an interest in all things druidical surged, thousands of natural boulders and archaeological sites were incorrectly associated with the druids. Today, one of the tasks of the modern archaeologist is to investigate so-called druid sites to determine if they had anything to do with the druids, or not.
A 2015 statement on the Blidworth Historical Society website stated: “Since March 1999 the site of the Druid Stone has been recognized by Newark and Sherwood District Council as a grade one geological site of regional importance to nature conservation.” Note that the Druid Stone was listed officially as a site of geological, and not archaeological, interest.
Remains of a Neolithic “Woodhenge” have recently been unearthed by a team of archaeologists at Perdigões in Portugal. The newly found wooden structure was built at the end of the Stone Age and is similar in design to the famous Stonehenge circle in England. The Perdigões Neolithic “Woodhenge” discovery is remarkable because nothing like it has ever been found in Portugal before.
Archaeologists discovered the new Neolithic “Woodhenge” within the Perdigões complex in southeast Portugal. The complex is one of the most important late Stone Age sites in the Iberian Peninsula, built around 5000 years ago, in the Middle Neolithic period. The 16-hectare (40-acre) site has many concentric ditched enclosures . It lies in a natural amphitheater and has been excavated since the 1980s by archaeologists from various countries.
The standard definition of an obelisk is a monolithic stone monument whose four sides, which generally carry inscriptions, gently taper into a pyramidion at the top. These massive, pointed shafts of polished granite were often capped with gold. Their size undoubtedly made them extremely difficult to move and raise. The real purpose of these obelisks could have been to act as antennas for receiving and possibly for transmitting energy or other signals such as radio or homing beacons.
Russian scientists have retrieved the nearly complete remains of a woolly mammoth in Russia. The Siberian mammoth remains are so well-preserved that they still have flesh and hair. These remains are up to 10,000 years old and they could play an important role in the international race to recreate prehistoric beasts in laboratories. The remains of the prehistoric creature were found not far from the village of Seyakha. The find was first spotted by members of a local indigenous community in Lake Pechenelava, on the Yamal Peninsula . Siberia has been unusually warm this summer with massive wildfires in many areas of this remote and vast region. However, the hot weather also made it possible to release the Siberian mammoth remains from the permafrost.
Archaeologists in Israel have discovered a 1,300-year-old church with exceptionally well-preserved mosaics beside the famous Biblical Mount of Transfiguration.
Perhaps one of the widespread misconceptions surrounding archaeology and history is that they are “grey” subjects, where in reality only be the passionless “teaching” of history can be called grey, for all archaeological evidence suggests the ancient world was ablaze with color. This is made evident in the recent discovery of highly detailed floor mosaics in a 1,300-year old church in Israel.
The well-preserved highly ornate mosaic floors were recently unearthed after the announcement of a new playground sparked an archaeological excavation in the Circassian village of Kfar Kama, near Mount Tabor. The project was directed by archaeologist Nurit Feig on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority , with assistance from local volunteers, in collaboration with Prof. Moti Aviam of the Kinneret Academic College.
The Book Of Enoch May Hold The Secret To The Fall Of Atlantis and The Giants of Sardinia FULL VIDEO
Part 3, On-Location Investigation: Can the Book of Enoch unlock the secrets of the fall of Atlantis and the giants of Sardinia? In our final segment of our three-part investigation, Freddy Silva, Paola Harris, and Regina Meredith explore an ancient monument dedicated to the sacred feminine. Within the chambers of this site, rituals were performed to initiate a woman into the various stages of her life. As we explore the details of these ancient rites, we find parallels within the Book of Enoch and the motivations of the Annunaki and Nephilim. What we uncover may finally put the pieces together of an ancient puzzle that reveals a lost history of the human race and parallel civilizations that helped us advance into the world we have become.
Atlantis - Sardinia Ancient Sites Were Built with Powerful Astronomical Alignments FULL VIDEO
Part 2, On-Location Investigation: Is there proof that survivors from Atlantis rebuilt civilization 3,000 years after the great deluge? In part two of our three-part investigation, Freddy Silva and Regina Meredith dig deeper into the archeo-astronomy of giant stone structures, built hundreds of thousands of years ago on the island of Sardinia, Italy. They take us on excursions to explore these sites, called nuraghe, which were built with powerful astronomical alignments and constructed in proportions far too large for normal-sized humans. As they look even deeper into the local legends, language, and symbology, they uncover the Atlantis-Sardinia interface revealing the presence of giants living among burgeoning human civilizations.

Ancient Advanced Civilization Once Occupied the Little - Known Island Of Sardinia, Italy FULL VIDEO
Part 1, On-Location Investigation: Is there an ancient connection between Atlantis, giants and the history of a small island in Italy? Paola Harris and Freddy Silva join Regina Meredith in this first segment of a special three-part investigation, filmed on location, to explore the remnants of an ancient advanced civilization that once occupied the little-known island of Sardinia, Italy. All across the island we find thousands of stone structures, constructed hundreds of thousands of years ago, by a civilization lost to history, but remembered by local myths and legends. We explore ancient ruins too large for humans, examine the bones of giants found on the island, and explore the forbidden history of the lost giants of Atlantis who may have settled here after the great deluge.

It's Not 6,000 Years Old, It's Undeniably Much Older And Shouldn't Exist!
Michael Cremo - Occasionally, ancient discoveries are made that simply do not fit in with any of our historical teachings and understandings. Discoveries that after being subjected to dating analysis reveal how old they truly are. The problem lies with the evidence. It reveals that these items are so incredibly old that they could not have been manufactured by man, simply because they are significantly older than human civilizations. How can this be? How long have humans really been around? Or... did some other unknown race manufacture these items?
