Lost Treasures of King Solomon- Can They Be Found? ExpeditionHistory.org TreasureForce.com

Stone worm, pic 1History tells us King Solomon really existed.  History tells us the Temple of Solomon existed (two Temples to be exact).  

So, why does history doubt the existence of the Shamir was one of ten miraculous items created by God at twilight upon the Sixth Day of the Hexameron?

Could G-d of really created “Ten Miraculous Items” that have been lost to history?  Did these items really exist?

Just as Heinrich Schliemann  proved – “that what could be considered as Ancient Myths could have a basis in Truth and be PROVEN, can Solomon’s Shamir be proven to exist, and more importantly rediscovered?

For this of you who don’t know the story of Heinrich Schliemann, here is what you should know about him:  BUT FIRST – Schliemann was like me and YOU.  

A dreamer who believe we don’t know enough about history and that ancient legends and myths could be originally based in truth, and he used his own funds and resources to go out and PROVE IT!

Heinrich Schliemann: (German: [ˈʃliːman]; 6 January 1822 – 26 December 1890) was a German businessman and a pioneer of field archaeology. He was an advocate of the historical reality of places mentioned in the works of Homer. Schliemann was an archaeological excavator of Hissarlik, now presumed to be the site of Troy, along with the Mycenaean sites Mycenae and Tiryns. His work lent weight to the idea that Homer’s Iliad and Virgil’s Aeneid reflect actual historical events.

Here is the reason I commander quote ion exploram providing this information:  read this historical report and then DECIDE FOR YOURSELF THE FOLLOWING:

(1) Could something like the Shamir exist?

(2) What does the “technology” sound like to you?

(3) Does it lead you to believe that Ancients had use of “Modern Technology” akin to what we have today?  

(4) Have we LOST more history than we have gained?  

(5) If this “Biblical Treasure” could exist, what about the others?  

This is an exercise in getting you to OPEN your mind and CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITIES and NOT be shut off by preconceived aides and prejudices!


If Heinrich Schliemann (SHLEE MON is how you say it, BTW) listened to common theory  and the prevailing predujices of his time, we still quite possibly of never known Ancient Troy was a real event and place.

Back to Solomon’s Shamir:54cfd0363a_Etching-of-model-of-Solomon-s-Temple-created-in-1600s-by-Rabbi-Jacob-Jehudah-Leon

The Nature of the Shamir

The shamir (from shamira in Aramaic, meaning “like a flint stone”) was a supernatural organism. The word “shamir” in biblical Hebrew was used in two senses: a) a penpoint made out of a hard substance (Jeremiah 17:1); or b) sharp thorns (Isaiah 5:6).

Each usage relates to the ability of the shamir to pierce hard surfaces. The “glance” of the supernatural shamir could carve great stones. The Talmud and later great rabbis described how the passage of the shamir along the surface of a stone would cause it to split perfectly into two pieces.

Was the shamir mineral, plant, or animal? In an Abyssinian legend the shamir is supposed to have been a kind of wood or herb. Maimonides, however, and Rashi, considered it to be a living animal. The Talmud says that the “glance” of a living creature caused wood and stone to split. A pseudepigraphic work, the Testament of Solomon,however, regards the shamir as a green stone perhaps similar to the pitda set in the High Priest’s breastplate representing the tribe of Shimon.

Small as a barleycorn (less than one centimeter), the shamir did not have an inspiring physical appearance. Its supernatural essence came from having been created at the twilight of the first Sabbath Eve during the Six Days of Creation. According to R’ Bachiya in the Talmud, the shamir was first used at the time of the construction of the Tabernacle to engrave the names of the tribes on the precious jewels of the High Priest’s breastplate.

For safekeeping, the shamir could not be put directly into any kind of metal vessel, including iron, which would be split apart. It was kept wrapped in wool, placed in a lead basket filled with barley bran (Talmud, Sota 48b.) The choice of these materials was specific, since no other materials were able to resist its penetrative powers.

Even King Solomon had no idea where to find the Shamir

The rulers of the Canaanites and other nations realized the value of the shamir, but they were never able to locate it. The Midrash recounts that even King Solomon had no idea where to find the shamir, although he knew that he needed it to build the Temple. Solomon went to great lengths to obtain the shamir, even to the point of contacting demons. Also created at the twilight of the Sabbath Eve of the Six Days of Creation, these beings had some relationship with the shamir and the other supernatural phenomena created at this exceptional twilight. The Midrash relates that Solomon consulted the king of the demons, who did not have it but knew that the angel of the sea had given the shamir to the hoopoe bird (dukhifat, Lev. 11:19), a type of fowl who needed it to survive. In the end, King Solomon captured the shamir from the hoopoe.

The shamir was used by man only in the construction of the Tabernacle and the Temple. Supernatural beings created by G-d for specific functions do not exist forever. The Mishna (Sota 9:12) states that the shamir existed until the destruction of the Second Temple. Tosafot (Gittin 68a) says that the shamir existed into the Common Era. According to the Tosefta, the shamir disappeared after the destruction of the Temple, since it was no longer needed. Correspondingly, the tachash, which had been created so its skin could be used for the Tabernacle, disappeared after the Tabernacle was completed. Considered a kosher animal, the tachash was similar to a unicorn with a single horn on its head (Shabbat 28b).

Another creature, the caper-spurge, shared characteristics with the shamir and was therefore mistaken for the shamir. But because the caper-surge existed into the Middle Ages (1000 CE), the rabbis argue that the two were not identical.

The “glance” of the Shamir could split wood and stone

What Caused the Penetrating “Glance”?

By definition, a supernatural creature made by G-d to perform specific miracles cannot be explained rationally. However, theories abound in science which correlate natural phenomena with the supernatural. In this spirit, the “glance” of the shamir that could split wood and stone might be explained by: 1) the production of high or low frequency waves that could resonate the molecular structure of materials and disrupt them, 2) the production of confluent light rays as a “laser beam”, or 3) radioactivity.

The essence of the “glance” remains speculative, but the late Immanuel Velikovsky 1, an expert on the times of Solomon, and Frederic Jueneman 2,a noted scholar, have suggested that the shamir was a radioactive substance. They reason that a leaden box would be the most logical means to sagely contain such a highly energetic radionucleotide. Thus, the “glance” of the shamir may have been alpha radiation. Alpha radiation is a high energy particle, which could destroy or discolor whatever is exposed to it. The reported weakening of the powers of the shamir in the course of time to the point of inactivity possibly indicates radioactive decay and half-life of its former radioactive potency.



If the shamir was a mineral, it could have been any one of a number of native green stones. It may have come from the copper sites in Armenia or Cyprus — or from King Solomon’s own mines in the Sinai, where malachite or verdigris also would have been found in the parent ore body. In fact, Jueneman cites ancient writings by Zosimos the Panopolitan (also called the Theban) state that malachite is an “enemy of Topaz, clouding its color and spoiling its lustre.” A highly prized material for ornamental objects, malachite, however, also was known to produce sores in the bowels and inflame the eyes — two symptoms known today as characteristic effects of radiation exposure. The malachite of today (or chrysocolla as it was known by the ancients) is not radioactive, but exceptions could have existed when combined with other minerals. Chalcolite (or torbenite), for example, a green copper uranyl phosphate, exhibits radioactivity.

The reported weakening of the powers of the shamir possibly indicates radioactive decay.

Carving the Stones

The Talmud says that the precision required to engrave the names of the tribes onto the precious jewels of the high priest’s breastplate without losing any material was not humanly possible. Using a radioactive compound (following the line of thought of F. Jueneman), this would not be difficult to accomplish. The tufts of wool and barley bran cradling the shamir would be transparent to its radiation, while the lead container would be impenetrable. If the ink used to write on the stones contained lead, a graduated discoloration would be highlighted on the gems after exposure to the shamir. The subsequent removal of the ink would leave such calligraphy contrasted with the background, also giving the appearance of depth to the writing. Most precious minerals, such as diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, or topaz, are discolored by radioactivity. Other gems, such as opals, are silicates containing water of crystallization. Exposure to alpha radiation disintegrates these crystals by releasing the chemically bound water, which volatizes without residue. That means, not even a splinter would be lost, leaving a cloudy or granular texture.

The creation, existence, and function of the shamir and the organisms that guarded it were all miraculous.

The “True” Essence of the Shamir

LM-Laser-Processing-Systems-automotive-laser-cutting-metalThe Mishna (Avot 5:6) relates that the shamir was created on the Sixth Day of Creation, at the twilight of Sabbath Eve. The Maharal elaborates on the significance of this point: The entire physical world created during the Six Days is governed by the laws of nature. Not having been created exactly within this time frame, the shamir is therefore supernatural.

The other exceptional phenomena created during the first Sabbath Eve twilight relate, in some way, to the shamir.

They include the demons, the ram which Abraham sacrificed in place of Isaac, the first pair of tongs, which were then used to make other instruments, Moses’ staff, Adam and Eve’s clothes, fire, the mouth of Balaam’s donkey, the Pillar of Fire and Pillar of Clouds that led the Children of Israel through the desert, and the vessel in which the manna was preserved in the Holy of Holies in the Temple.

The creation, existence, and function of the shamir and the organisms that guarded it were all miraculous.

The Midrash relates the concept that a softer substance may have the ability to pierce a harder one. For example, the stone that David flung at Goliath pierced the giant’s helmet and killed him (Samuel I 17:49).

The shamir, too, had no physical limitations. It could effortlessly penetrate the hardest materials, and yet it was preserved in a basket of lead (a soft metal), attesting to its other than natural origin.

Although by definition miracles do not have to be explained as scientifically observable phenomena, the miraculous shamir which cut the stones for King Solomon’s Temple matches the description of alpha radiation.

Ancient 2200 Year Old Computer Shipwreck to be REINVESTIGATED! ExpeditionHistory.org TreasureForce.com

Antikythera MechanismIn the world of exploration and archaeology contradictions and controversy abound and the great debate is about to heat up once again as an advanced dive team prepares to make another dive on the 2nd Century B.C. Shipwreck.  The ancient Greek Antikythera wreck in the Agean Sea produced a highly controversial “out-of-place-artifact” debate by giving the world a look at the possible sophistication of ancient mankind with the discovery of a 2200 year old astrological computer hidden within this historic shipwreck.

The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient analog computer designed to predict astronomical positions and eclipses. It was recovered in 1900–01 from the Antikythera wreck, a shipwreck off the Greek island of Antikythera.  The instrument has been designed and constructed by Greek scientists and dated between 150 to 100 BC.  Technological artifacts approaching its complexity and workmanship did not appear again until the 14th century, when mechanical astronomical clocks began to be built in Western Europe. 

The so-called Antikythera Mechanism, a 2nd-century BC device known as the world’s oldest computer, was discovered by sponge divers in 1900 off a remote Greek island in the Aegean.
The highly complex mechanism of up to 40 bronze cogs and gears was used by the ancient Greeks to track the cycles of the solar system. It took another 1,500 years for an astrological clock of similar sophistication to be made in Europe.

Now archaeologists returning to the wreck will be able to use a new diving suit which will allow them to more than double the depth they can dive at, and stay safely at the bottom for longer.




oopART 2exosuit 5The deep water dive has deployed one of the most advanced dicing apparatuses ever used – called the Exosuit.

(Phys.org) —Marine archeologists with the Hellenic Ministry of Culture research program (with support from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) are planning to explore the ancient Greek Antikythera wreck in the Agean Sea, using an exosuit developed by Nuytco Research—originally for use in helping workers in New York’s water treatment facilities. The iron-man looking exosuit allows a diver to descend to 1000 feet for hours at a time without need for decompressing upon returning to the surface.

The Antikythera was discovered by divers in 1900—attempts to explore the wreck resulted in recovery of many artifacts, mostly famously, one that is known as the Antikythera mechanism—now referred to as the world’s oldest computer. But it also led to injury and death due to the extreme depth (120 meters). Subsequent attempts more recently have led to more discoveries, but time constraints have prevented a thorough study of the wreck. Wearing the exosuit, the researchers hope will not only allow for mapping the wreck, but for discovery of more artifacts, some perhaps as interesting as the Antikythera mechanism.

Deep water exploration technologies like these shown in this article are changing the world of underwater exploration.  Now divers can literally go to deeper depths and stay underwater for over 100 hours if necessary.  The depths are getting deeper and deeper as technological advances are made and the more mankind explore the deep, the more strange creatures we keep discovering.

The need for the Exosuit for this dive is to give the exploration team more time to work underwater.

exosuit 2The Exosuit, built in Canada by Nuytco Research, will permit divers to reach depths of 150 metres (492 feet) and still perform delicate tasks, says archaeologist Theotokis Theodoulou.

The suit, which resembles a puffy space suit, “expands our capabilities”, Theodoulou told AFP as the team set off for a month-long expedition to Antikythera, which lies between Crete and the Peloponnese.
“I’ll be able to grasp, pluck, clench and dig… for several hours,” he said.

Archaeologists believe many other artefacts are yet to be discovered in and around the wreck. Up to now they had only been able to operate at a depth of 60 metres.

The suit, which is essentially a body submarine, allows for both arm and leg movements, courtesy of multiple patented rotary joints. It also has 1.6 horsepower thrusters that are activated by the “pilot” via pads inside the boots.

It’s made of mostly aluminum, and weighs 530 pounds. The hands are claw-like, which has meant many hours of training in pools for the research team.

The suit also has external LED lights and cameras, an oxygen replenishment system and a tether to the surface with a fiber optic gigabit Ethernet that allows for two-way communications, a live video feed, and monitoring of the suit and its wearer. In the event of an emergency, the suit has backup batteries and systems to maintain life support—if necessary, the four man crew up top can take over control of the suit to bring the diver out of harm’s way.


The mechanism was found with a spectacular bronze statue of a youth in the wreck of a cargo ship apparently carrying booty to Rome, and researchers are certain that other items on board still remain to be discovered.

“We have good signs that there are other objects present,” said Angeliki Simosi, head of Greece’s directorate of underwater antiquities, after exploratory dives in the area in 2012 and 2013.

“There are dozens of items left, this was a ship bearing immense riches from Asia Minor,” added Dimitris Kourkoumelis, another archaeologist on the team.

The archaeologists also hope to confirm the presence of a second ship, some 250 metres away from the original discovery site.

Antikythera, which now has a population of only 44, was on one of antiquity’s busiest trade routes, and a base for Cilician pirates, some of whom once captured and held the young Julius Caesar for ransom. He later had them all captured and crucified.

Who is buried in Alexander’s Great Tomb? Watchers waiting on pins and needles ExpeditionHistory.org TreasureForce.com

Who is buried in Alexander’s Great Tomb?  When you say it, this sounds like the old childhood joke we used to tell “Who is buried in Grant’s Tomb?”

One of biggest mysteries of modern archaeology might be solved in the coming days—and all eyes are on a huge circular structure that lies beneath an ancient Greek mound.




blogarrator logo

tomb location200px-Ptolemy_I_Soter_Louvre_Ma849Who’s Buried in Largest Tomb in Northern Greece? New Finds Raise Intrigue.
A relative of Alexander the Great may lie in the 2,300-year-old burial site.

Fans of ancient history are laying bets on who was buried in the dark heart of a massive marble-walled tomb that is slowly coming to light in northern Greece

Dating to the tumultuous years surrounding the death of Alexander the Great, between about 325 and 300 B.C., the tomb is the largest ever found in northern Greece—a resting place monumental enough for royalty.

The burial borders the ancient Aegean port of Amphipolis (near modern-day Amfípoli), which once served as the base for the fleet that Alexander the Great took on his invasion of Asia.

After nearly two years of digging at the site (known as the Kasta tumulus after the name of the hill it lies beneath), archaeologists are now exploring its inner chambers.

Its entrances are guarded first by a pair of sphinxes, then by columns in the form of women—each stretching out an arm to ward off intruders. Beyond them lies one of the greatest mysteries of modern archaeology, one that might be solved in the next few days—or might trouble the sleep of scholars for decades, as the last great find in the territory of the ancient Macedonians, the nation once ruled by Alexander the Great, has done.

The structure that now holds much of Greece and Hellenists around the world in suspense stands at the site of ancient Amphipolis, about a hundred miles east of Thessalonica, on territory conquered by Alexander’s father Philip in the 4th century B.C. Amphipolis was a major Greek city and a stronghold of the vast Macedonian empire, but today the site is all but deserted. On grasslands where goatherds graze their flocks, under a hill called Kasta—now protected by a military cordon from throngs of onlookers—lies one of the most puzzling finds ever unearthed in the Aegean region.

blogarrator logoRound in shape and vast in size, the building beneath the hill has been called a tomb for lack of a better label. Circular buildings, though rare in antiquity, were sometimes used for royal burials, but no other known tombs approach the scale of this one: 500 meters in circumference (half again larger than Stonehenge) and surrounded by a superbly built marble wall. Atop the center of the building’s roof once stood a crouching stone lion, long ago removed from the site but still intact—a sign that the tomb, if such it is, probably held a great soldier or ruler. The structure’s date, fixed by analysis of the lion and the stonework, seems to be the last quarter of the 4th century B.C., the decades just after Alexander’s death in 323.

Only Alexander himself, it would seem, could have merited such an enormous and expensive resting place, yet Alexander’s remains are known to have gone elsewhere—stolen by Ptolemy, the Macedonian ruler of Egypt, for interment in Alexandria and later visited by thousands. So unless an ancient legend is true, that Ptolemy swapped a dummy Alexander for the real one, the greatest corpse in the ancient world is already accounted for (at least until its unexplained disappearance many centuries later). So too, apparently, are the bodies of Alexander’s father and son, widely believed to be the occupants of two sumptuous tombs discovered, totally intact, in the late 1970s, near Vergina, on the site of what was once the Macedonian royal capital.

Find Treasure Faster! 5 Must-Have Treasure and History Hunting Tools everyone can afford! ExpeditionHistory.org

freeOne does not have to be a former tech billionaire to afford the best lost treasure and lost history hunting gadgets.  In fact, nowadays – the best and most useful gadgets to improve your effectiveness as scoring a forgotten fortune are FREE!

Who can argue with Free?  Especially when it could mean the difference in finding your fortune or leaving empty handed?

 Let’s take a look at some of the most effective lost treasure and lost history hunting gadgets and best of all, the ones at the end of this blog post are free!


rangefinder twoYes, this one does cost money, but you can now find them dirt cheap on ebay and other “sale” websites.

laser-range-finder-1One thing you never want to encounter is “seeing” a treasure sign and heading out towards it, only to find out the distance to it was much father or higher than you expected.  You feel you are making progress and then you realize the target site was just too far or too high to make and now you  are even closer, but you just don’t have the energy and are forced to turn back from the target.  One way to better gauge the missions needs and whether or not you can reach the target this mission is to be able to KNOW the distance to the target.  To do that you will need (and should always carry with you) a range finder.  With just a simple click of a button, you can electronically obtain range and elevation and then make a better decision as to (1) how and (2) when you can reach the target, and more important (3) are you properly equipped to reach the target.

Here is how they work:

Range Finder, an optical instrument for measuring distance. Range finders are used mainly in photography for focusing cameras and in gunnery for aiming artillery. There are various non-optical, electronic devices that perform the same function as range finders.
The range finders used with cameras are coincidence range finders. Such a range finder uses mirrors or prisms to produce two or more images of an object. The viewer sights the object through a viewfinder and adjusts a knob or other mechanism to bring the images into alignment. The amount of adjustment is shown on a scale from which the viewer can read the distance to the object. The range finder is usually coupled with the camera’s focusing mechanism so that the viewer does not need to know the distance; when the images in the range finder are in alignment, the lens is in focus.  In gunnery, both coincidence and stereoscopic range finders have been used. A stereoscopic range finder has a pair of eyepieces through which the viewer sees a single image of the object and a pattern of lines that appear to float in a space. The viewer turns a control mechanism until the pattern appears to be at the same distance as the object; the viewer then reads the distance from a scale.Range finders are also a golf product.  Yes golfers use the device to ascertain their distance from the pin.  Now find your distance from the pin with one of these.


GPS_Location_FinderLet’s say you are out with your history hunting or artifact recovery buddies and you all agree to meet back at the car or at camp in two hours and share your finds.  During your two hours out (we always hunt in patios and highly recommend you do as well) you come across an amazing man influenced carved rock structure.  Problem is you took a long circuitous route to get there and there really is not a direct path to this location.  So, needless to say, you are somewhat concerned at your ability to re-find the site to show your treasure hunting buddies.  When have ALL been in this situation and how many times have you found something and wanted to show everyone in your party, to only have it take hours to re-find the “special spot” where you made your discovery?  The following is a piece of urban technology re-purposed for lost treasure and lost history purposes.  Most people refer to the device as a “back tracker”.

Originally designed for urban shoppers and then expanded to “less than  frequent – orientation challenged hikers” these devices work on a simple premise.  Click the button from where you start on your adventure, and then the device will read that setting always displaying your distance from and direction to a specific location. Most use this device to find their way back to base camp or a trail head, but they can be used in reverse.  Here is how the manufacture of the device we use, promote this device:  “With the Bushnell BackTrack, getting back at the end of the day is as easy as pushing a button and following an arrow. The BackTrack has only two buttons and stores up to three locations-just mark it and forget it until it’s time to return.  Whether it’s marking a car in a crowded parking lot or a campsite in the woods, the BackTrack provides distance (yards/miles or meters/kilometers) and a directional arrow to any of the three saved locations at the push of a button. In addition, the BackTrack can be used as a digital compass. Use it to find your car in a crowded parking lot, your favorite fishing hot spot, your campsite after a day of hiking, and more!”  Carry one of these devices (they are very small) and when you make a discovery, CLICK and then when you get back to base camp or rendezvous, you can take your group right back to it!


In lost history and treasure hunting, the expert hunter KNOWS to follow the eyes.  What does “follow the eyes” mean?

In ancient times, when those who deposited treasures in the ground for safekeeping chipped away at rocks and made directional markers, one of the most frequent markers they used where “faces and heads” carved in rocks and these were meant for the ones following the clues to the hidden hoards to “follow the eyes”.  Remember, when ancients (and the same would apply to you as well), only a FOOL would carve a small rock, pointer, arrow or even a boot – the size of a magazine and leave it on a trail to “point the way to treasure”.  Why?  Pointers and way markers that small can be washed off of the trail, blown over, knocked over by wildlife or moved by snow drifts and totally make the marker UNUSABLE to find the “treasure vault” – so EVEN THOUGH you see hundreds of hundreds of hundreds of social media posts and books with these tiny markers – THEY ARE NOT MARKERS!  Unless the original depositor is a FOOL and did not account for rain, wild animals, snow and such – and then if they were FOOLISH and DID use such “portable markers” then YOU TOO will not be able to “follow the pointers” to the treasure. (As you can see this is a hot button educational point of mine). Moving on.  Authentic treasure or lost history markers are monolithic and carved out of immovable stones!  WHY?  Who wants their valuable stash to be lost and not refundable due to the markers falling away? NO ONE – NOT EVEN THE ANCIENTS (who I think were booth smarter and more resourceful than us as modern advanced people).  They would carve LONG STANDING MARKERS and most would have EYES that one is to FOLLOW.

To show you what I mean, I offer the following two photos:

warriors head 2warriors head w commander

These authentic treasure “monoliths” are 12 feet exposed above ground (by that I mean – we really do not know how deep the bodies go into the ground.  But they are in fact in the ground).  As you can see you have a “head and shoulders” man carved monolith.  You can see the “hat or brow”, the “eyes”, the “nose” and the “chin”.  These are all “pointers” but for this article I am only going to use the “eyes” for your current focus.  In ALL AUTHENTIC TREASURE SYMBOLS and MONOLITHS where a head or head/face is featured- you are to follow the eyes to where the “sentinel” is looking.  These types of markers have been proven time after time to “watch over” the actual site, burial place, vault or treasure room.  So, if you want to find any of these types of things, you MUST FOLLOW the eyes.  So, how does one follow the eyes?  With laser guided precision of course.

laser-pointer-beam-greenNow I am assuming we are all adults here and we do not have to be told, don’t point these at people, or peoples eyes, or at aircraft, so the only instruction I am going to tell you isLaser_pointer_safety_distances “use such a laser to point your way to fortunes”!

These “green” lasers can be viewed for over 3 miles and when you find a monolith which “looks out over or watches over” a possible lost treasure or lost history location” you need one of these devices to “sight in” what the monolith is “looking at”.  NOTE:  HIS WILL NOT WORK WITH THE RED LASERS – THE RANGE OF VIEWING IS TOO TOO SHORT.  MUST be green laser only.

What you do is place the green laser into the “eye” and then “you can see” what the monolith sees.  In the instance of this monolithic man above, we found the exact location of the tomb just about three miles away (route distance) or 1.3 miles away as the crow flies.  When placing the laser in the eye of the monolith, we were able to “see the exact spot” where he looked (BTW, he look at a black rock and under the back rock was an entrance to a complete hidden system).

These devices can be as inexpensive as $10 at a thrift store and we recommend getting several if you buy the chapter ones.  The cheap ones tend to eat batteries and the lasers can become jumbled.  But since they are so prevalent now-a-days, even the top quality ones are just about $49.00 NOTE:  These are more effective when you use them at dusk to site, or do your sighting before sun up.  Set the laser, not the spot (take photographs) and then let the sun rise and “see in daylight” your next target.


Sometimes you cant carry a large metal detector with you, but at times you wish you really had one you could carry around in your pocket.  Well there is such a thing and it is called a Falcon Gold Tracker.  mimfalconlg

I actually own two of these devices and we have found them to be the most dependable “pocket carried” metal detector, so whenever you want one (usually when facing a vein or in a gully or tunnel) then you can just pull this one out and go to town and at least get a reasonable indication of your possible gold finds.

Here is what the manufacture says about their device:

Currently produced in Mesa, AZ, the most popular Falcon model, the MD20, has become an industry standard for electronic probes of all kinds.  Its high frequency of 300 kHz and unique electronic design have given it excellent ability to find super fine gold particles that other detectors and probes cannot find.  The Falcon can find particles of gold barely visible with the human eye.  The Falcon’s superior ability to detect gold, silver, copper, platinum and other valuable metals in rock formations provide the prospector with a tool unavailable until now.   Historically, tailings piles were created by miners selecting good ore from “worthless rocks” by sight alone.  Millions of dollars of valuable ore were discarded because the miner couldn’t see the metal!!  Those metals are still lying in those tailings piles waiting for someone with the electronic sight of a Falcon.   Small enough to fit in you pocket and rugged enough to be used in the field,  the MD20 will be a necessary tool for every serious prospector.


This headline and ad is what caught my attention: We used to pay $3,054.82 in 1991 to buy all the stuff in this ad that you can now do with your phone. That amount is roughly equivalent to about $5,100 in 2014 dollars.  LOOK

Archaeological Laws Killing New Discoveries – “Age of Piracy” Proven Unfounded! ExpeditionHistory.org TreasureForce.com

Sometimes even the best intentions create horrible unintended consequences.  

Celtic TreasuresFor example:  In recent decades terrorist which have attacked western countries have actually fit into a specific “cultural” profile, yet “profiling or racial profiling” has become almost as “taboo” as “being a chain smoker”.  The laws were designed to protect one group of people, in America “racial profiling” came about to help prevent racial prejudices and harassment and they served a meaningful purpose – INITIALLY.  However, over time “racial profiling” was read over into other areas or laws and now the Transportation Safety Administration can no more stop someone of “cultural interest or identifiers” as a potential terror threat, due to now wanting to be subjected to “racial profiling laws”.    As such, a dead ringer for a militant Islamist wearing a “Jihad” t-shirt can salts right through NYC TSA Security unencumbered, while the red haired, 80 year old grand mother using a walker top hobble around, could be subject to body cavity searches with no ramifications.

Lessons here?  Laws can help, but some time the laws can create a worse situation than there really was prior – all in the name of protecting the “people”.   Thus TSA will conduct diligent body searches, not of real possible terrorist targets, but of those “safer” to target and not get into “legal trouble”.

See the vicious cycle?  It can actually create more chaos and can actually hurt humanity as a whole.  So, how does this relate to Treasure Hunting and Lost History Recovery?

During the late 19th and early 20th century — an era former Met director Thomas Hoving called “the age of piracy” — American and European art museums acquired antiquities by hook or by crook, from grave robbers or souvenir collectors, bounty from digs and ancient sites in impoverished but art-rich source countries. Patrimony laws were intended to protect future archaeological discoveries against Western imperialist designs.  But as it turns out, those laws may not be an unalloyed good. In country after country, empirical data show that when rigid cultural property laws are put in place, major archaeological excavations and discoveries slow markedly, making source countries — and the world at large — culturally poorer.

In fact, with various Archaeological Laws on the books and more (MANY MORE) coming, society and humanity ARE LOSING OUT – BIG TIME!


Here is how the Los Angeles Times studied this issue of “Unintended Consequences”:

The Getty Center in Los Angeles, the Metropolitan Museum in New York and Sotheby’s auction house — these are just some of the major institutions that have been forced to repatriate artworks in recent years. Italy, Egypt, Greece, Turkey and Cambodia have all successfully used their cultural property laws to secure the return of important antiquities from collectors and museums.

Treasures from King Tutankhamen’s tomb that had been in the Met’s collection for almost a century went back to Egypt. In 2006, the Met agreed to return the Euphronios krater, a masterpiece Greek urn that had been a museum draw since 1972. In 2007, the Getty agreed to return 40 objects to Italy, including a marble Aphrodite, in the midst of looting scandals. And in December, Sotheby’s and a private owner agreed to return an ancient Khmer statue of a warrior, pulled from auction two years before, to Cambodia.

Cultural property, or patrimony, laws limit the transfer of cultural property outside the source country’s territory, including outright export prohibitions and national ownership laws. Most art historians, archaeologists, museum officials and policymakers portray cultural property laws in general as invaluable tools for counteracting the ugly legacy of Western cultural imperialism.

During the late 19th and early 20th century — an era former Met director Thomas Hoving called “the age of piracy” — American and European art museums acquired antiquities by hook or by crook, from grave robbers or souvenir collectors, bounty from digs and ancient sites in impoverished but art-rich source countries. Patrimony laws were intended to protect future archaeological discoveries against Western imperialist designs.

But as it turns out, those laws may not be an unalloyed good. In country after country, empirical data show that when rigid cultural property laws are put in place, major archaeological excavations and discoveries slow markedly, making source countries — and the world at large — culturally poorer.

I surveyed 90 countries with one or more archaeological sites on UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list, and my study shows that in most cases the number of discovered sites diminishes sharply after a country passes a cultural property law. There are 222 archaeological sites listed for those 90 countries. When you look into the history of the sites, you see that all but 21 were discovered before the passage of cultural property laws.




Red Headed Devils – when legend becomes provable fact! ExpeditionHistory.org

The ancients knew MORE than history actually acknowledges. As a researcher and historian, I find it arrogant that historians over time poo-poo the legends and myths of ancient peoples as being “absolute fact and recording of real history” and instead relegate such aboriginal and native legends to the category of “fancy fictional lip flapping” to entertain.viking ship

Do you feel the same way? How is it when someone gets an archaeological or anthropological degree they immediately think they are smarter than an entire people and with such degree in hand they can claim the stories of the ancients “works of fiction” instead of “actual recording of history”? How arrogant is that?

Personally, I believe most passed down aboriginal stories and native accounts are more based on fact than being rooted in fiction in entertainment. For me, I choose to believe the telling of stories for “entertainment purposes only” is a more modern invention, and that ancient man was telling stories to share their history and as such, the story teller was a venerated position and not one relegated to that akin to a court jester or mere entertainer.
So, why is it academia continues to lump all legends and native stories into the fiction category? Why is it not the other way around, kind of like a court of law? True, until proven untrue?
viking swordThe answer is each successive generation believes the generations before (especially those in the far, far past) were ignorant and feeble, with slack jawed slobbering tendencies while barely able to feed and clothe themselves. Guess it is the need of each generation to think of itself and being better and more accomplished than the last. But in such thought comes a huge disconnection with reality and as such, we as a collective peoples and society, have lost more history than we have gained. The following article proves this point.
Many ancients in North America such as the ancient ancestors of the Chickasaw and Choctaw peoples tell of problems, wars, issues and even trading with the “red headed devils”, but in their “I am more knowledgeable than those who lived it – modern archaeologists and anthropologists have labeled such stories as “mythology”.
Well…. New flash… once again academia has lost another mythology to the proven science of a hard discovery. Here is the story:
Viking Ship Discovered Near Mississippi River
Memphis| A group of volunteers cleaning up the shores of the Mississippi river near the biggest city in Tennessee, have stumbled upon the remains of an ancient boat encrusted in mud. A team of archeologists from the University of Memphis that was rapidly called to the site, confirmed that the ship is most certainly a Viking knarr, suggesting the Norse would have pushed their exploration of America a lot further than historians previously thought.

The heavily damaged ship was found near the confluence of the Wolf and Mississippi rivers, and lies on a private property. It has a length of about 16 meters, a beam of 4.5 meters, and a hull that is estimated capable of carrying up to 24 to 28 tons, a typical size for this type of ship. Knarrs were naval vessels that were built by the Norsemen from Scandinavia and Iceland for Atlantic voyages, but also used for trade, commerce, exploration, and warfare during an era known as the Viking Age, that goes approximately from 793 to 1066 AD. They were clinker built, which means the overlapping of planks riveted together. It was capable of sailing 75 miles (121 km) in one day and held a crew of about 20 to 30 men.
This new discovery could be one of the oldest evidence of pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact, and it certainly brings to mind the famous colony of”Vinland” mentioned in the Icelandic Sagas. This mythical colony would have been established by Leif Ericson around the same period as the settlement at l’Anse aux Meadows, in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, the most famous site of a Norse or Viking settlement in North America outside Greenland.

Butternuts found in the Newfoundland site had already suggested that the Norse had explored the continent because they do not grow naturally north of the Canadian province of New Brunswick, hundreds of kilometers away from any known Viking settlement.

The carbon dating of the new ship estimates that it dates from between 990 and 1050 AD, approximately the period associated with Vinland and the various Canadian sites (L’Anse aux Meadows, Tantfield Valley, Avayalik Islands). This could mean that the Viking had actually developed a far wider trade network in the Americas that what was traditionnally believed. Unfortunately, very few other artefacts have yet been found on the site, suggesting the crew must have most likely abandoned the ship and continued on foot.



Earth’s Core Solid Gold? Hollow Earth? Current events as indicators? TreasureForce

Earth’s Core Solid Gold? Hollow Earth Theory? Current Events Baffle

Crater of unknown origin discovered on Yamal PeninsulaIs the earth’s solid inner core made of pure gold? Just imagine what a vast treasure that would be? Some scientist believe this is where gold comes to the surface of the earth from; melts from the core and bubbles up to the earths surface during various geological events! It is believed that the core also contains enough gold, platinum and other siderophile elements that if extracted and poured onto the Earth’s surface it would cover the entire Earth with a coating 0.45 m (1.5 feet) deep. The fact that precious metals and other heavy elements are so much more abundant in the Earth’s inner core than in its crust is explained by the theory of the so-called iron catastrophe, an event that occurred before the first eon during the accretion phase of the early Earth.

How about this theory? A vast network of tunnels span the length of the globe. Could the Earth be hollow and civilizations live underneath of very feet? This theory was so widely believed that both the United States Government and Hitler’s Nazi Force mounted expeditions.

As one who explores and knows much is hidden beneath our feet, I am forced to research these topics. With recent events in Siberia, I am now forced once again to take a long hard look at what may be “really” hidden within our planet (see below – amazing photos), but first – some background on the “Hollow Earth Theory”.   Perhaps some of the most bizarre scientific theories ever considered were those concerning the possibility that the Earth was hollow. One of the earliest of these was proposed in 1692 by Edmund Halley.

Edmund Halley was a brilliant English astronomer whose mathematical calculations pinpointed the return of the comet that bears his name. Halley was fascinated by the earth’s magnetic field. He noticed the direction of the field varied slightly over time and the only way he could account for this was there existed not one, but several, magnetic fields. Halley came to believe that the Earth was hollow and within it was a second sphere with another field. In fact, to account for all the variations in the field, Halley finally proposed that the Earth was composed of some four spheres, each nestled inside another.

astrostrategic_2_jpgHalley also suggested that the interior of the Earth was populated with life and lit by a luminous atmosphere. He thought the aurora borealis, or northern lights, was caused by the escape of this gas through a thin crust at the poles.

Others picked up Halley’s hollow-earth theory often adding their own twists. In the eighteen century Leonhard Euler, a Swiss mathematician, replaced the multiple spheres theory with a single hollow sphere which contained a sun 600 miles wide that provided heat and light for an advanced civilization that lived there. Later Scottish mathematician Sir John Leslie proposed there were two inside suns (which he named Pluto and Proserpine).

One of the most ardent supporters of hollow-earth was the American John Symmes. Symmes was an ex-army officer and a business man. Symmes believed that the Earth was hollow and at the north and south poles there were entrances, 4,000 and 6,000 miles wide, respectively, that led to the interior. Symmes dedicated much of his life to advancing his theory and raising money to support an expedition to the North Pole for the purpose of exploring the inner earth. He was never successful, but after his death one of his followers, a newspaper editor named Jeremiah Reynolds, helped influence the U.S. government to send an expedition to Antarctica in 1838. While the explorers found no hole there, they did bring back convincing evidence that Antarctica was not just a polar ice cap, but the Earth’s seventh continent.

Now, that you have a simple overview on the two theories, take a look at what has just developed in Siberia.

New unexplained holes have appeared in Siberia following the mystery over a giant crater on the Yamal Peninsula. A second is in the same permafrost region of northern Russia, and a third on the Taymyr Peninsula, to the east, in Kransoyark region. Reindeer herders who almost fell in spotted both. The original hole received worldwide attention after being identified by helicopter pilots some 20 miles (32km) from a huge gas extraction plant at Bovanenkov.





Symbols in Rock MAY lead to Treasures Out Of This World – according to NASA. ExpeditionHistory.org

Part of being a Hidden History and Lost Treasure Hunter is knowing how to decode ancient rock symbols.  To be able to do so, one must study a symbol discipline of several eras just to begin to decode symbols and their true meanings.  For the last few weeks I have been head long immersed into the following ancient symbols:  South-Arabian, Modern Arabic, Safitic, Lihyanite, Royal Sabean, Ethiopian, Thamudean, Roman, Faliscan, Neo Etruscean, Early Roman, Oscan, Ertruscean, Athenian, Corinthian, Arcadia, Melos/Thera, Phenician, Hebrew, Aramaic, Byblos, Proto Sinaitic, Vinca, Azillian and Gosel (Gosel goes back to 12,000 B.C.) and there are still some symbols in the rock carving I am studying (38 different symbols in all) I cannot decipher or place.

So after about 200 hours of continual research in trying to decode the symbols that perplexed me, I came across the following headline:

NASA: Ancient Rock Art ‘Might Have Been Made By Aliens’ Not Human Civilizations -

Talk about a shocker!  First glance this was a hoax story, that is until I obtained and read the NASA book on the subject (Yes, I have attached a FREE download book for you of the NASA 300 plus page publication).  Here is the basis for NASA releasing the book:


Nasa has released a new book that suggests ancient rock carvings found across the globe were may have been created by extraterrestrials.

As the search for life on planets other than our own continues, the space agency has suggested ways in which we might communicate with aliens from other worlds.

In one section, William Edmondson, from the University of Birmingham, considers the possibility that rock art on Earth is of extraterrestrial origin.

“We can say little, if anything, about what these patterns signify, why they were cut into rocks, or who created them,” he writes. “For all intents and purposes, they might have been made by aliens.”

Edmondson maintains that suggesting the ancient markings were created by aliens is necessary to reframe the way we go about searching for signals from other worlds – and how we make contact.

“Consider again, therefore, the desirability of establishing symbolic/linguistic communication with ETI [Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence],” it reads. “It is helpful to review some parallels from human existence that pose problems for us today.”

“One of these is “rock art,” which consists of patterns or shapes cut into rock many thousands of years ago. Such ancient stone carvings can be found in many countries… We can say little, if anything, about what these patterns signify, why they were cut into rocks, or who created them.”

The book, Archaeology, Anthropology And Interstellar Communications, is edited by Douglas Vakoch, the director of Interstellar Message Composition at the Seach for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute.

Vakoch’s research studies ways in which different civilisations might “create messages that could be transmitted across interstellar space” – allowing communication between humans and extraterrestrials without face-to-face contact.

The introduction to the book states: “Addressing a field that has been dominated by astronomers, physicists, engineers, and computer scientists, the contributors to this collection raise questions that may have been overlooked by physical scientists about the ease of establishing meaningful communication with an extraterrestrial intelligence.”

Elsewhere, authors tackle the question of the possible biology, evolution and physics of an alien race. Vakoch examines methods in which extraterrestrials might communicate, as messaging through sound, as we do on Earth, may not be possible.

So what say you?  Could some of the symbols we all struggle to decode and rediscover hidden history and recover lost treasures, really be otherworldly?
