Ancient 200,000 year old Human Metropolis Found in Africa

When explorers first encountered these ruins, they assumed that they were cattle corals made by nomadic tribes, like the Bantu people, as they moved south and settled the land from around the 13th century. There was no previous historical record of any older civilization capable of building such a densly populated community. Little effort was made to investigate the site because the scope of the ruins was not fully known.

Over the past 20 years, people like Cyril Hromnik, Richard Wade, Johan Heine and a handful of others have discovered that these stone structures are not what the seem to be. In fact these are now believed to be the remains of ancient temples and astronomical observatories of lost ancient civilizations that stretch back for many thousands of years.

These circular ruins are spread over a huge area. They can only truly be appreciated from the air or through modern sattelite images. Many of them have almost completely eroded or have been covered by the movement of soil from farming and the weather. Some have survived well enough to reveal their great size [see above] with some original walls standing almost 5 feet high and over a meter wide in places.

Looking at the entire metropolis, it becomes obvious that this was a well planned community, developed by a highly evolved civilization. The number of ancient gold mines suggests the reason for the community being in this location. We find roads -- some extending a hundred miles -- that connected the community and terraced agriculture, closely resembling those found in the Inca settlements in Peru.

But one question begs for an answer -- how could this be achieved by humans 200,000 years ago?

I believe that number is off? Maybe 20,000? Im guessing they couldnt find bones. This maybe connected to an ancient black culture that goes against their statust quo do they said 200,000

I think the Sub Saharan ancient civilization need to studied more. Much to be found out, much hidden under desert sand.

Africa is the least studied region of the world. Am sure there surprises in store for future researchers.

There is no way such a complex was created 200,000 years ago. That is when Homo sapiens first evolved.

Where are they getting that date?

From the article..

"The first rough calculation was at least 25,000 years ago. But new and more precise measurements kept increasing the age. The next calculation was presented by a master archaeoastronomer who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of ridicule by the academic fraternity. His calculation was also based on the rise of Orion and suggested an age of at least 75,000 years. The most recent and most acurate calculation, done in June 2009, suggests an age of at least 160,000 years, based on the rise of Orion -- flat on the horizon -- but also on the erosion of dolerite stones found at the site.

Some pieces of the marker stones had been broken off and sat on the ground, exposed to natural erosion. When the pieces were put back together about 3 cm of stone had already been worn away. These calculation helped assess the age of the site by calculating the erosion rate of the dolerite."

Hardly a scientific and accurate dating process.

Yeah, because you believe the theory that modern humans evolved only in Ethiopia. Africa imay have other surprises in store.

I agree... Africa is the birthplace of humanity and riches landmass in history. I'm sure there're tons of ancient African cities waiting to be excavated.

Great thread

Bullsh!t theorists are trying to call it an Annunaki city.

Right. I want to see C14 or KAr or palynological correlations or something that is accepted and reliable to date archaeological/palaeontologica l finds.

Astronomy... and rock erosion isn't much better.

200,000 yrs? SMH... I don't think so.

May have, but the genetic evidence points to Ethiopia, and the oldest sapiens remains are from there. It was a small population of heidebergensis who evolved into sapiens. It does not seem that this evolution occurred in a widespread population, but a small localized one.

These theories are all BS. Explain how massive monuments around the world were built without machines?? Explain how massive stone heads were carved & moved with primitive tools & without machines?? Scientists have NEVER addressed these issues. Instead of addressing all of this they decide to create their own made up theories.

Good Stuff! The dates of Ancient Civilizations has been pushed back so much. Scientists have only scraped the surface when it comes Ancient Civilizations.

You're making no sense. What do monuments have to do with 200,000 yr old fossil evidence?

You're not addressing the origin of sapiens in Ethiopia at all.

Google “Homo sapiens idaltu”. That is the oldest sapiens known. It is from Ethiopia.

Because both deal with stages Human advancement. Humans during a less advanced stage of History could still create massive monuments & move massive stones around like we can nowadays. So there seems to be some flaws in ur theories regarding Human advancement which is what Evolution is about.

There are not flaws in our theories because they “could have” done something. That is utter BS, empty of substance.

You seek to deny all prevailing theory, since your beliefs are cultish nonsense. Oh yeah, academia is all racist in a conspiracy against you because you know the Truth.

Get a grip.

You are not a Hebrew.
