The events of July 16th - 22nd 1994, when the remnants of a fragmenting comet, P/Shoemaker-Levy 9, bombarded the
surface of Jupiter causing fireballs many times the size of our own planet, were an abrupt wake-up call even for those
who were aware of them. The historical sciences generally, and archaeologists in particular, have collectively painted
a picture of the past as if our planet 'stands alone in empty space'. But nothing could be further from reality. Our
resilient planet exists in a solar system that has had a very dynamic history over the past 20 millennia or more
and it is only from this wider solar system perspective that the true history of human civilisation can ever
be fully understood. Therefore, The Morien Institute archive contains information from many disciplines

 

Academic archaeologists and prehistorians are publicly confident that they understand most
if not all aspects of prehistory: when and where the first settled communities appeared,
when and where the first experiments with agriculture and domestication of animals
began, and they collectively paint a picture of a gradual development from small
hunter-gather groups to larger tribal societies and then the eventual rise of the
first supposedly civilised urban cultures of Mesopotamia, Akkad and Egypt

But numerous discoveries being made all over the world are increasingly questioning
that well-established wisdom, and as the standard paradigm of prehistory begins
to fall apart the 12,000-year-old megalithic complex at
Göbekli Tepe is just one
of the discoveries that is changing our misunderstanding of the archaic past

Another mysterious ancient megalithic structure can be found underwater
about half a mile off the coast of the southernmost Japanese island of Yonaguni

To understand why our News Page updates are sometimes late
here is some information about Fibromyalgia symptoms

 

The July 2014 New Discoveries Headlines page is now being updated again thanks to our regular visitors who've sent in many stories and links to help while our Web Editor, John, is recovering from some serious complications of his spinal injuries.

Problems caused by the plagiarisation of The Morien Institute website content have been advertised on many other websites as people express their disgust, and we are told that a number of websites have since taken down the material they simply stole from our site. These included exclusive interviews conducted by our Web Editor, John Michael, with leading researchers and explorers who share our views that the standard paradigm of prehistory as taught in our schools, colleges and universities is simply wrong and in urgent need of radical review.

We are also told that several authors have apologised for not crediting The Morien Institute archive as one of the main sources of "their research", although to date we've heard nothing directly from any of them ..... Hmmm!!!

Many thanks to all those regular visitors who have offered help in countering this problem, and to those who've done something about it by giving unwelcome publicity to the various websites, book authors, TV documentary producers and researchers who've used our content without any thought of acknowledgement.

All links into The Morien Institute website are now live again, though the news headlines archive is only available for the current year while we decide future policy. The 2014 Skywatching Calendar continues as normal, and is updated daily.
