Anomalies Of Our History

UnchartedX’s Ben Van Kerkwyk explores new discoveries in ancient history and examines possible forms of high technology. In the following edition of “After Skool, Van Kerkwyk dissects some of the anomalies that don’t fit into the mainstream story of our past and makes the case for rewriting some of the beginnings of our history.




The Origin Of The Sea People

The Sea People are a mysterious seafaring confederation that attacked ancient Egypt and other regions in the East Mediterranean prior to and during the Late Bronze Age collapse. The origins of the Sea Peoples is undocumented, although the Great Karnak inscription of the Pharaoh Merneptah states that at least three of the Sea Peoples (Ekwesh, Sheklesh and Sherden) were circumcised. Here, Robert Sepehr, author and anthropologist, offers a few of his theories, encompassing not only the peoples of the new World but also Atlantis.




Lost Children Of Hercules

Herodotus, perhaps the most renowned Greek historian, believed the Greek religion was mostly an Egyptian import. The Spartans, it’s believed, emigrated to Greece from Egypt. They introduced keynote numbers, including three, seven and 12 — all of which later appeared in prominent places within the Bible.

Here, we’re introduced to the strong men Hercules and Samson, who shared many traits, including a love for beautiful but dangerous women. But this goes much deeper, showing how the Israelite tribe of Dan extended its influence over the Vikings in the North and the Druids or ancient Celts found in the vicinity of Ireland. It’s the work of Robert Sepehr, author and anthropologist.

 




 

The Mythical Origins of Europe

For much of Western history, from the Roman Empire to the Renaissance, noble families across Europe insisted that they were not related to the populations that they ruled, but instead traced their ancestry back to illustrious heroic figures of myth and legend.

The Etruscan civilization flourished in central Italy starting around 900 BC, with assimilation into the Roman society, beginning in the late 4th century BC. Although the Etruscans developed a system of writing borrowed from Greek script, the Etruscan language remains only partly understood, making modern interpretation of their society and culture heavily dependent on much later and generally disapproving Roman and Greek sources.

The Etruscans called themselves Rasenna (meaning Red) and held the serpent as sacred, and some scholars associate them with the Sea Peoples named by the Egyptians, or the Tribe of Dan.  More from Robert Sepehr, author and anthropologist.
