For 25 years I
follow the footsteps of the Ancient Astronauts all over the world. You can read
a dozen books about a place, but one visit gives you instantly more perspective
then any book ever will. Only if you are physically there one can experience
the climate, environmental surroundings and all the other factors that
contribute to an ancient place. Only if you felt hurrican-force winds in North
Scotland or the incredible humidity in the jungle of Mexico one can
appreciate and understand what our ancient ancestors have built.
For me archaeology is more then measuring rocks or cataloging buildings. I'm
convienced that the big mysteries of the world aren't located were they are out
of pure coincidence. The ancient people had a plan and maybe help from somebody
else. That's why I want to encourage you to actively travel to the ancient
sites, see them for yourself and draw your own conclusions. There is nothing
more rewarding then that. And if your wallet or timetable is not allowing you
to travel, investigate in the area you live in. Maybe you will be surprised
with what you find.
But you shouldn't go unprepared. Here a few things I have in my travel bag to
conduct my own research.
Being a photographer by trade (check out my website
www.archeophotography.com) I focus
more on the photographic gear.
