an essay written some years ago, entitled Astronomical Theory
and Historical Data, Dr Livio C. Stecchini demonstrated
that the Egyptians could measure latitude and longitude accurately,
a technique not developed by our society until the eighteenth
century. Dr Stecchini; a professor of ancient history at William
Patterson College in New Jersey, gives almost reluctant confirmation
of Egyptians superior geographical and mathematical skill.
a set of documents, known to Egyptologists but not hitherto
regarded as out of the ordinary, he found date to prove that,
as early as 3000 B.C., they had already recorded the
latitude and longitude of the main points of the Nile, from
the Equator right down to the Mediterranean. Further data was
found by Dr Stecchini which showed survey measurements of points
encompassing most of the Old World some even extending
to Norway and Russia.
by this revelation, he desperately searched for errors. The
calculation, however, proved to be uncannily accurate and he
was never able to establish more than a minute of error in latitude,
or more than five minutes of error in ten degrees of longitude.
It does seem as if there may be some substance to the old tradition
which says that initiates from Atlantis brought technical skills
into ancient Egypt.
Lion motif, which figures strongly in Egypt, may be another
indication of the time of the initiates entry. It prompts
the deduction that the Lion is representative of the Age of
Leo. The relic of ancient Egypt, the Denderah Zodiac, has baffled
archaeologists for years. Originally part of the ceiling of
the 4000 B.C. temple at Menes, it now reposes in the Louvre,
in Paris. The zodiacal signs are arranged in a circle, but the
Lion is set at the point of the vernal equinox, suggesting that
it may have been constructed in the time that it was meant to
represent, the Age of Leo.
