2016 July Website Ad Page The Long JourneyThe recent decoding of the Giza Pyramid earth star map (2,19) has been followed by the rapid discovery of numerous megalithic sites, and underwater cities. In this study eight sites located near the center of drawn map are now analyzed. At each of the eight sites, a single line geoglyph is discovered: all exhibit the same alignment angle as the central half-sidereal month line that runs from Canada to the tip of South Africa.


The Giza Pyramid earth star map (2,8,12,17,19) was first discovered by combining several features present at several separate archaeological sites, see The Long Journey: 400,000 Years of Stone Age Science.

Recent studies of the map has now revealed that at each 90 degree of longitude the earth is apparently marked with large megalithic sites, or ancient important cities (19,21,22). This has led to the recent hypothesis that perhaps an ancient civilization located sites along a pattern that replicates an X-shaped cross. To further test this hypothesis a study is now undertaken of the historically complex region of the Mediterranean that is located at the center of the proposed cross.


The earth/star map with “proposed X”  is drawn with longitude lines defined by the Giza Pyramids. The site codes added are defined by the cross-points created using the ecliptic, celestial equator, and major lines of longitude defined by the Great Pyramids.

Locations on the primary Atlantis Cross are shown in Yellow, locations where the Celestial Equator cross primary lines of Longitude are given as letters. Locations where the Ecliptic cross Lines of Longitude are given as numbers. Greek letters represent points where the Ecliptic and Celestial Equator cross. Earth map mosaic created using Mapquest Satellite images (Equirectangular Mercator Projection).

A preliminary analysis of the regions near the center of the X reveal the presence of eight identical “Single Line Geoglyphs” that replicate the previously found “Single Line Geoglyph” in western Iraq (20). The Iraq Single Line Geoglyph site was first discovered using the Lascaux Pleaides Bull cave painting (20). The eight “Single Line Geoglyphs” sites are;

Site 1: The Iraq Single Line Geoglyph

The Iraq Single Line Geoglyph, at Latitude 33.1, Longitude 39.1, occurs on the primary arm of the Atlantis Cross between the Blackwater Geoglyph Field in Canada, and Tianhuanaco in Bolivia.

Site 2: Central Algeria (Located at Region “ε” on world map)

The point drawn by the Celestial equator crossing over Ecliptic in Algeria occurs in a very remote area of the country. The closest line to the cross-over point is at Latitude 29.2 Longitude 4.0. The closest towns are El Golea (180 km to the northwest, Brodj Omar Driss 310 km to the southeast and Haisi Messaoud 345 km to the northeast.

Site 3: Sirte, Libya (Located at Region H on world map) at Latitude 30.6, Longitude 16.8

Site 4: 320 km NW of Eoj Wahs, Libya. Located on Atlantis Cross Nazca-Irkutsk Line at Latitude 23.7, Longitude 17.2

Site 5: Kalleh Padeh, Iran. Located on Atlantis Cross Nazca-Blackwater Line, at Latitude 29.25, Longitude 60.25

The geoglyph at this location runs between the towns of Kalleh Padeh, Dumak and Shuru at Latitude 29.25, Longitude 60.25. In contrast to the North African region where many geoglyphs can sometimes be observed, Iran is largely devoid of large geoglyphs with the line located at Kalleh Padeh being the only line visible.

Site 6: Herat Afghanistan. Located at Region I on world map

South of Herat Gurian and are three prominent lines. The first occurs at Lat/long. 34.15, 62.43, under the settlements of Karez-i-Sultan and Todeh, the second at Lat/Long. 34.1, 61.9 close to the settlement of Akhund Zada. A third line at Lat/Long 34.2, 61.5. Of the various sites studied these geoglyphs are the ones at greatest risk, with two nearby towns that may ultimately encroach onto and over the geoglyphs.

Site 7: Urganch, Uzbekistan Located on Atlantis Cross Nazca-Irkutsk Line, at Latitude 40, Longitude  61.3

Site 8: Utep, Located at Region 7 on world map, at Latitude 48.7, Longitude 62

The presence of eight simple geoglyphs, at the central region of the drawn X suggests that at the time of construction (believed to be 14,000 years ago major cities were only only constructed at the low lying coastal regions, which are now underwater. At the then colder higher altitudes a “simple” line 10 to 20 km in length sufficed.

The Northern African region contains the highest density of lines, and in some regions more than one set of lines is observed. The reason for this is uncertain. At other regions the lines are local with no surrounding lines visible. This suggests that northern Africa (where the pattern density is the highest) might be the best location to search for the civilization that created the pattern.

    … very interesting (if that’s NOT an understatement!!) reference to a ‘second’ Atlantis surely NOT to Lemuria/land of ‘Mu’ with which the Atlanteans are reputed to have, ahem, enjoyed certain marked differences of ahem! ‘view’.

      Hi Doug,

      The second Atlantis is the Kiribati Island Chain, or perhaps the islands nearby. This is contained in Platos reference to an Island in an Ocean. The confusion appears to be in Plato’s description of the word “Mouth”.

      The detailed description Plato provided us is for the Gulf of Tonkin. You can see in my papers I noted the Kiribati Islands very early in the study – when I was trying to prove the Iona geoglyph were just natural formations. The Gulf of Tonkin discovery came after the discovery of the global geoglyphs. Both are related, and suggest Atlantis was only one small part of an even older civilization.

      I think the split Kingdom idea is replicated in Scotland. When you look at Scotland the various ancient Kingdoms that made up Scotland (Strathclyde, the Picts and Dal Riata) were each divided into two parts. The religious class in one city, the warrior class in another. This might be the same with Atlantis.

      A few dives to the Gulf of Tonkin site should confirm the theory one way or the other.

    Hello. For many years I have been seeking an answer to what looks to be many geoglyphs on the Kirbati Islands just below the Marshall Islands.When I saw the Eight Single Line geoglyph,Cygnus Earth/Star Map,I noticed the X came very close to these islands.Most of the geoglyphs are on the right side of the islands.They look like giant arrows.There are also large triangles with circles on the top of them.Have these ever been seen before.
