Pre-Columbian contact that probably happened

An Indigenous History of North America

Pre-Columbian American history is one of my biggest areas of interest. And one of the things I’ve learned over the course of studying it is that unlike in European history, where “theory unsupported by most mainstream historians” generally means “crazy pile of nonsense someone dreamt up to further their political cause,” in Pre-Columbian American history it generally means “explanation of ambiguous evidence that may very well come to be accepted as true in another ten years.”

Non-Native historians of the Pre-Columbian Americas are very reluctant to let go of their preconceived ideas of American history. But after looking through evidence, I think there’s strong suggestions that the following things really happened:

1. Norse in Greenland and the Canadian Atlantic, ~900s to 1400s
This one has been actually definitely proven with lots of records and archeology and stuff. They sailed in from Iceland, set up some camps, got in a lot…

Radical New Research Challenges Long Held Beliefs on the Cahokia Collapse — MIKE RUGGERI’S ANCIENT AMERICAS NEWS

June 19, 2021 New research shows that Cahokia was not abandoned because they cut down too many trees. Archaeologists from Washington University in St. Louis looked at the common narrative that the Cahokians deforested the area leading to erosion and flooding.

The Great Secret of Stonehenge

Ancient Horology

Our information sense regarding space and time comes to us so engrained in modern societal tradition that it’s difficult to really comprehend how, where and why these concepts developed. In the modern era we often assume that ancient peoples were less informed, less able and less advanced than we are today in every aspect of their lives, but, there is evidence to the contrary. Surveying and timekeeping forms the major basis of Neolithic social, cultural and technological enterprise, and so we should consider the subject of ancient horology and its relevance to ancient and modern human society.

Stonehenge has stood for over 4000yrs, a superior technology encoded with the culmination of ancient high knowledge and wisdom concerning horology. Stone-circles are horological devices used to survey space to enable the calculation of the passage of time as perceived from the earth surface. When we consider the impact of the clock, compass…

Calculating the Size of the Earth: The Ancient Geometric Method

Brilliant Training Blog

File:Portrait_of_Eratosthenes Eratosthenes (276-195 BC). Mathematician, poet, philosopher, geographer.

One of the oldest and still most useful applications of mathematics is using geometric relationships to derive the dimensions of things without directly measuring them. About 2000 years ago, an Ancient Greek scholar, philosopher, poet, and mathematician named Eratosthenes used staggeringly simple geometry to calculate the size of the Earth; possibly with very high accuracy. The Ancient Greeks were remarkable for their ability to use geometry to describe the scale of things that they could not directly perceive. Their geometry  was always correct and clever, but their conclusions were often way off due to inaccuracies in the measurements that the calculations were based off of. The scale of the Earth is one measurement that they might have nailed pretty close.

“Their Only God is Money” — SENTENTIAE ANTIQUAE

The following is a spurious letter from the wild Historia Augusta. This is filled with religious confusion, some hate, and an odd detail about cups. Historia Augusta, 29.7 “Hadrianus Augustus greets Servianus the Consul. Dearest Servianus, that Egypt you were praising to me is completely light of learning, volatile, and swinging toward every little rumor.…
