Ancient Signposts (cont.)

Glyphs and Geoglyphs
Glyph - A glyph can be any design that is used to convey a
Geoglyph - A geoglyph is a glyph that occurs on the ground.
Bearing - A bearing refers to the direction that any line formed by a geoglyph
points in relation to "True North". True North is used
because as soon as you begin tracing a magnetic line away from the
source, magnetic deviation becomes a factor. Magnetic Deviation
exists all over the world and renders magnetic headings useless over
long distances because of the error it causes in a magnetic bearing.
True headings can be derived from celestial observation, GPS, and
computer software which are tied to satellite photos. These methods
produce True Headings which are not distorted by Magnetic
Radials - Radials are bearings after they leave the source. Radials remain a
straight line because no magnetic distortion has taken place while
moving away from the source. Once a direction away from the source is
plotted it must be traversed on a true course, not a magnetic course,
in order to avoid magnetic deviation.
for the most part, are so large that they can only be recognized from
the air. The civilizations that constructed these signposts either
had the capability of flight, or had an advanced knowledge of
mathematics and astronomy well beyond anything we could have imagined
for the time. I have visited some sites on the ground and even
knowing they are there I find them difficult to locate.
glyphs take on several forms. Some take the form of a triangle,
another might be one or more circles, and another may be one or more
lines touching or crossing each other. No mater what shape a glyph
takes, any line can be a pointer to a place important to the creator
of that glyph.

In the book you will learn that the exploration of Caral Peru was
coming to a close, due to lack of artifacts, until Geoglyphology
revealed it as the capitol of a territory spanning the entire
continent of South America.
accuracy of the calculations of the ancient peoples is incredible.
The GPS accuracy of the software program is seldom more accurate than
the orientations of the ancient geoglyphs. By calculating the bearing
at the source one can follow the extended radial, by satellite and
computer, for sometimes thousands of miles and locate an abandoned,
and sometimes unknown urban area, with little or no error.

the evolution of civilizations from before Egyptian times to the
colonization of the Americas. While performing the research for the
book it was discovered that down through time ancient groups
left a legacy of geoglyphs on the shores and highlands of land masses
around the world. Well known examples are the geoglyphs at Nazca
Peru. The reason the Nazca Lines and other geoglyphs were not
discovered until recently is that they are too large to be seen from
the ground. And so it is with most geoglyphs. Geoglyphs exist on
every continent and many islands around the world. Extensive research
on geoglyphs shows that they are all related in the protocols used in
geoglyphs in the book range in age from the 10,000 year old Ruins at
Caral, Peru, to the 250 year old streets of Washington, DC. The book
will be of particular interest to individuals that are interested in
knowing the true story about the evolution of a privileged and
dedicated group of people that have shaped the history of our world.

will amaze you, entertain you, surprise you, and, if you have an open
mind, will convey information which has heretofore been restricted to
speculation. It is no easy task to change the centuries of
misinformation, thrown at the citizens of the world, disguised as
history. There are many reasons for this deception, but history is
forever and should be recorded faithfully. You will see in the
signposts, left by the ancients, exists a true recording of the
evolution of civilizations over many millennia.
