Mountain Mansion In The Sky

This is truly a castle fit for a king. Or, as the case may be – a royal tomb.

 

Imagine living inside your own opulent palace, that also happens to be an entire mountain. Sadly, as Herod became aware of his impending death, he decided to turn the palace into a memorial hilltop instead…

 

Monumental entryway to Herodian Hilltop Palace unearthed

Posted by Past Horizons

 

“Archaeologists from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Institute of Archaeology have discovered a monumental entryway to the Herodian hilltop palace. The unique complex was uncovered during excavations by The Herodium Expedition in memory of archaeologist Ehud Netzer.

 

The main feature of the entryway is an impressive corridor with a complex system of arches spanning its width on three separate levels. These arches buttressed the corridor’s massive side-walls, allowing the King and his entourage direct passage into the Palace Courtyard. Thanks to the supporting arches, the 20-metre long and 6-metre wide corridor has been preserved to a height of 20 metres…”

Found In Egyptian Sands…

One MILLION mummies? Who are they?

 

And…read closely and you will also find mention of the other recent discovery that is baffling scientists.

 

Why is this news so under reported? Is there a bit of a cover-up going on here?

 

Experts Make Massive Discovery Under the Sand of the Egyptian Desert — and It’s Left Them Puzzled

by Oliver Darcy

 

“A team of archeologists say they have unearthed an ancient cemetery in the Egyptian desert containing more than one million mummies buried approximately 1,500 years ago.

 

“We are fairly certain we have over a million burials within this cemetery. It’s large, and it’s dense,” project director Kerry Muhlestein said while presenting his findings in Toronto last month, according to Live Science.

 

The discovery, however, has left the experts from Utah’s Brigham Young University a bit baffled…”

Richard III DNA shows British Royal family may not have royal bloodline

 

The University of Leicester has studied the DNA of Richard III and found that there could be a break in the royal bloodline

 

By Sarah Knapton, Science Editor The Telegraph UK

 

 

“When the body of Richard III was discovered in a car park in Leicester in 2012 archaeologists knew it was a momentous find.

 

But little did they realise that it might expose the skeletons in the cupboard of the British aristocracy, and even call into question the bloodline of the Royal family.

 

In order to prove that the skeleton really was Richard III, scientists needed to take a DNA sample and match it to his descendants.

 

Genetic testing through his maternal DNA proved conclusively that the body was the King. However, when they checked the male line they discovered something odd. The DNA did not match showing that at some point in history an adulterous affair had broken the paternal chain.

 

Although it is impossible to say when the affair happened, if it occurred around the time of Edward III (1312- 1377) it could call into question whether kings like Henry VI, Henry VII and Henry VIII had royal blood, and therefore the right to rule…”
