By Tomás Martínez Rodríguez

Un recorrido por los lugares y yacimientos arqueológicos más insólitos del planeta. Un viaje en el tiempo desde el génesis de nuestra especie hasta l. a. extinción de las grandes civilizaciones de l. a. antigüedad.

Los vestigios y lugares misteriosos que aparecen en las páginas de Civilizaciones perdidas inspiran los angeles imaginación, producen admiración y hasta temor. Su existencia plantea interrogantes sobre sus avanzados conocimientos en astronomía, matemáticas, ingeniería e incluso su abnormal visión de l. a. historia y su forma de entender los angeles religión. Estas evidencias siguen desafiando el pensamiento moderno. Grandes culturas cuya desaparición comienza, tras décadas de estudio, a ser comprendida.

Tomé Martínez analiza en l. a. obra ciudades milenarias, lugares de poder, objetos imposibles, tumbas, momias, reliquias sagradas, naciones desaparecidas cuyo nombre apenas resuena en los mitos y leyendas de los angeles antigüedad... las huellas dejadas por nuestros ancestros son numerosas y no dejan de aparecer nuevos testimonios de viejas y olvidadas presencias. Todos estos testimonios y monumentos sirvieron para expresar l. a. conexión entre los hombres y las fuerzas invisibles del Cosmos.

Razones para comprar l. a. obra:

• Muestra los datos más actuales y también los más sorprendentes; aquellos que cambiarán para siempre nuestra concepción del pasado remoto de l. a. humanidad.
• Presenta nuevas evidencias que constatan asombrosos conocimientos científicos por parte de las antiguas civilizaciones.
• Descubre las inteligentes y sutiles fórmulas que idearon los pueblos de los angeles antigüedad para proteger los asombrosos conocimientos técnicos y científicos que poseían así como los fraudes arqueológicos que hacen tambalear nuestra visión de importantes facetas de los angeles historia.
• Un libro que muestra una visión revolucionaria de nuestra manera de interpretar los tiempos remotos en los que los angeles humanidad construyó l. a. frágil ilusión de l. a. civilización con lo que todo eso comporta.

Tras décadas de estudio resulta evidente que muchos de estos enigmas jamás serán resueltos. No pasa lo mismo con las causas que propiciaron el declive y extinción de muchas de estas grandes culturas.

Example text

Here, however, the technique appears to have no ‘barrier’ at 40 000 radiocarbon years BP. b Lake George It is correctly noted that organic 14C determinations from Lake George continue in stratigraphic order to c. 30 000 BP at c. 2 m depth and then fluctuate around this date for the next 5 m of deposit (Roberts et al. 1994: 611). However, Roberts et al. fail to report that three inorganic (carbonate) dates from c. 25 m, c. 40 m and c. 54 m gave infinite (>37 800 BP) results. After a 14C determination from 20–30 cm depth gave a figure of 975±100 BP, a second determination was run on the NaOH insoluble fraction of a specially treated 10-kg sample from the same depth.

1), all show this phenomenon: 14C age increases steadily with depth back to about 35 000 years BP, and this apparent finite 14C age then continues into deposits at least 80 000–90 000 years old. At a level in the Lake Eyre sequence at Williams Point, for example, Genyornis eggshell was dated by accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) radiocarbon, by thermal ionisation mass spectrometry (TIMS) uranium series, and by amino-acid racemisation; the surrounding sediment was dated by thermoluminescence (TL).

It became apparent during the next 15 years that an apparent ‘ceiling’ had been reached, whereby radiocarbon dates of between 35 000 years and just short of 40 000 years were obtained from a number of disparate locations across the continent. Two 1989 papers interpreted these data differently (Allen 1989; Jones 1989). Allen (1989), taking this limit literally, argued that some of the oldest dates came from stratigraphically less secure contexts, such as river terraces and other open deposits. However, one of us (RJ) had been concerned for several years that dates of this order of magnitude were close to the theoretical limits of the method and that contamination by even a tiny amount of modern carbon could change a sample of ‘infinite’ age into one with an apparent age of 40 000 years or less (Jones 1982: 30).
