A bit of History and Legend surrounding the Rumi Qolqa Gate (Rumiqullqa Gate) a visit to which inspired Dee MacQueen’s Theory…

The Gate Theory

This theory/legend,  states that La Portada was originally built by the Wari to serve as a gate to their area of rule. This gate was meant to seperate the four “suyus” or regions of their Empire. Since it was on the main highway, travellers would have to pass through the gate and pay a toll. Layer, the Inca modified the gate to serve as an aqueduct.

The Theory Emerges

It was a rather breezy, chilly day when we visited the Rumi Qolqa Gtae (Quechua meaning stone storehouse) and this was Dee’s first glimpse of “knobs” on a grand scale. Although we had visited a few places in and around Cusco that sported the phenomena, Rumi Qolqa sort of hits you in the face as the “knobs! are so very obvious and something about the place enables one to visualise a pattern rather than, until now, a random spacing of unexplained “knobs”!!

As we were sheltering from the wind, eating our packed lunch and quietly absorbing the scale of the place, De, out of the blue, suggested that perhaps the knobs were a language!! – Fresh eyes and fresh feet on the ground is something that, at times, is necessary. Having stared and photographed these knobs globally for many, many years and listened to a myriad of theories, I think I personally had reached a brick wall as regards the stone knob phenomena!! – Everyone associated with Global Stonework has suggested their own theory, but this was a new one to me and to be honest, as someone once said, “it had to be easy for them”. I have heard the most complicated and in some cases, the most ludicrous theories regarding these knobs, so when Dee put forward her suggestion, it immediately struck me as simple, straightforward and one of the most sensible theories I had heard to date. I stood back and stared at the so called “gate! and it all made sense!!

Mouth open and mind reeling, Dee and I rushed back to get more shots from different angles.


We couldnt wait to get home that day and immediately contacted the USOKS linguistics expert, our very own Cecelia Hall.

We sent Cee the pictures along with Dee’s Theory and of course, as usual, Cecelia was onto the idea quick as a flash/ Her first job was to gather as much evidence of global stonework that resembled the stonework here in Peru, specifically, the “knobs”

They included – Peru (Cusco, Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, Vitcos) – Bolivia – China – Egypt – France – Portugal – Easter Island and the UK.

There are even “knobs” at Stonehenge!!!!!!!

These are just a few examples (We are awaiting permissions for others for the full blown article) – Some sites are Neolithic and that age of mankind goes back to approx 15.200 BC. This of course is a very tentative date, and as we are aware, some sites are beyond dating and indeed beyond our comprehension at this time.

Cee’s second job was to put forward her ideas on the type of language these global “knobs” might represent. She Suggested two possibilities…

  1. The 3000 year old Peruvian Chavin Culture Stele with DOT where the third eye would be – Two DOTS close together = nose and two DOTS far apart = mouth.
    This however was discarded because there are three knobs in a row on the Rumi Qolqa Gate.

Chavin Stele

2. Could the DOT/DASH pattern be Quipu knots and be the name of the building with a  date when the structure was built?. Also, figuring into the “knobs” being a language, was the fact that some same size stones had two knobs together while others had two knobs apart.

I personally liked theory number two. Having worked in the Archaeological site of Ephesus in Turkey, I was always amazed at the symbolic street names and symbolic store fronts which we can still see today. Although from a more recent timeline, a lot of the symbolgy at places like Ephesus is still used in this layer of time to represent a globally understood “picture” without the need for words. In other words, travellers/visitors to the city, knew exactly where to go regardless of their mother tongue.

Discussions ensued with input from all four members of the team. From a Braille suggestion to a verbal map of all linguistics based theories but always ensuring that the core “language” theory was adhered to. Perhaps then, in one particular layer of time, when the world was smaller, global travel was predominant and the stonework was globally recognisable to all, an ancient but consistent mode of symbology greeted visitors and locals alike. As we still have generic, non linguistic global code available to us today e.g Morse Code, Semaphore, Braille, Universal recognisable traffic signals etc. Why not on our Ancient Earth? – Global connective symbology, as we are aware, is everywhere on Pertoglyphs and Rock Art, so why should this particular theory be so surprising to us?….

Taking Dee’s theory globally, it all now makes sense, at least to me it does!! – No need for Ancient Aliens, Electric Power Points or Star Maps – The “KNOBS” are simply a universal symbolic language easily recognisable to all. Imagine when the Sacred Valley or the Giza Plateau were once filled with water and you were a weary sailor from any part of the globe approaching port, what better way to Greet/Warn/Give Directions etc. in one universal, symbolic language understandable by all walks of life.
As for the smaller scale knobs, could these simply be street names/store names? – We must remember that most of this stonework we are discussing is very, very ancient and has been removed/dismantled/restored/destroyed and of course, re-utilised over the eons, so translation today would be very difficult, however, not impossible. Sooooooooo…….

The Dolmen Theory by John Jenson

Annie Tittensor Independent Researcher

DolmenjensonTRex

A survivor population following the Last Great Cataclysm, 7,000 years ago would have lost most or all of its technology within a few generations, probably not more than 4 or 5, or certainly within 150 years of the event. Survival at that time was a day to day enterprise, and as soon as any predators began to hunt and kill the survivors, the local tribal leader’s immediate reaction would be to build some sort of impregnable ‘safe room’ that was not vulnerable to predator attack.

Monsanto Portugal

Living beneath a roof that weighs more than the average cruise ship may make some people a little nervous. But it is commonplace for the residents in the Portuguese village of Monsanto, who adapted their homes around the environment filled with gigantic granite boulders. In the mountaintop village, homes are sandwiched between, under and even in the 200-tonne rocks.

Panoias Portugal

As most of you know, we don’t do anything by halves here at USOKS. Our researchers are international and where possible, we prefer “boots on the ground”. Please let me introduce our USOKS researcher based in Portugal – the lovely Dee MacQueen…

A couple of weeks ago, someone posted a picture from the internet of a stone at a place called Panoias in Portugal. A few discussions cropped up and that’s where Dee stepped in!! Why “discuss” something from an old internet pic when you have “boots on the ground”. So….Dee volunteered to go to the site on behalf of the USOKS team. Not only did she manage to photograph the whole site and surrounding area, but she was clever enough to include a 12″ rule in her backpack to make sure that everyone experienced the scale of things!! – clever lady …
Once you view the wonderful pics, you will realise that attempting to google information on the site is futile – LOL. This place is from a time long forgotten. In fact if you didn’t know the name of the site and where it is, you would swear you were in Peru!!!!!!!!!

Panóias sanctuary, located in the surroundings of Vila Real, is one of the most enigmatic cases of Portuguese archaeology.

The Hostage Stone Isle of Bute

Annie Tittensor Independent Researcher

The “Hostage Stone” depicts a traumatic event for the inhabitants of Bute. Discovered in excavations beginning in 1999, the stone is now on display in the Bute Museum.

I was lucky enough to photograph the stone on Friday evening when the Isle of Bute Museum held it’s “Night at the Museum” evening. The engraving is quite difficult to make out, so the museum have made a replica which shows the scene depicted in more detail….

Note the tall person with long flowing hair….The “Hostage Stone” was discovered  during an excavation of the medieval churchyard on Inchmarnock. It was found in two pieces, roughly 4m apart and a year apart. The smaller piece was found in 2001 during the excavation of an exploratory trench to the north of the medieval church; the larger fragment came to light in 2002 during excavation of the area to the northwest of the church.

The Concho Stone

Annie Tittensor Independent Researcher

The Cochno Stone in West Dunbartonshire bears what is considered to be the finest example of Bronze Age “cup and ring” carvings in Europe.

Picture: Contributed Picture: Contributed

The stone, which measures 42ft by 26ft, was discovered by the Rev James Harvey in 1887 on farmland near what is now the Faifley housing estate on the edge of Clydebank. It is covered in about 90 carved indentations, or “cups”, and grooved spirals, along with a ringed cross and a pair of four-toed feet!!

History researcher Alexander McCallum, who has lobbied to have the stone uncovered, said there were multiple interpretations for the carvings. It is thought that the markings are astronomical maps, showing constellations. Mr McCallum said similar carvings had been found around the world, including in Hawaii, India and Africa, while in Scotland they tended to be found along the west coast near the sea or rivers, often close to…

East Wemyss is a former coal-mining village on the south coast of Fife. It is famous for a group of sandstone caves along the shoreline, these having been delved in some far-off time when the waters of the Firth of Firth were higher than today. The cave walls are adorned with ancient carvings, many of which are now hard to discern.

Vitrified Scottish Forts

Annie Tittensor Independent Researcher

TapONoth1    craig phadrig

I do not know how many times I have been asked about this. Every time the word “vitrification” is stated in my research as well as that of Jan Peter de Jong’s, Jesus Gamarra’s and Bob Newton’s, a lot of folks cite the research on the Scottish Vitrified Forts. As Jan Peter will tell you, the vitrified vestiges in Peru are a different kettle of fish. No ne seems to have addressed the research and the investigations into the 60 or more vitrified forts in Scotland. For this short article I will try my best to explain the Scottish vitrification process and will focus on what is known as “Fully Vitrified” .

What is Full/Total Vitrification?

Total vitrification appears to be the application of an extreme temperature evenly throughout the entire length or significant section of the rampart for a significant time, to the extent that the…

Ccochahuasi Animal Sanctuary

What a fabulous day out. I have been dying to visit the sanctuary for over a year now and today was it – and I was not disappointed.

DSC05945

The Animal Sanctuary on the way from Cusco to Pisac is free to get into and serves as a rehabilitation centre for various indigenous species like the condor, different types of macaws and parrots and wild cats including declawed pumas rescued from a casino!!

Not only is the entry free!!, you are guided through by the most knowledgeable caregivers who explain EVERYTHING to you and relate the, sometimes, quite horrific background these animals had before being rescued.

Hawk

The animals are first rescued by the ecological police who brings them to the sanctuary. The sanctuary operates as a family enterprise and survives solely from tourist donations and purchases of animal-friendly products from their souvenir shop.

the sanctuary

Although there is no entry fee, I would strongly encourage you to leave a donation. If you leave 10 soles (or more hopefully), you can take away a lovely handmade gift. The Peruvian government endorses and legalizes their paperwork, BUT offers no financial support. Tour guides DON’T stop at the sanctuary as the family who runs it cannot afford to pay the tour agency a fee for stopping there, so please if you visit Cusco, take the time to visit the sanctuary. It will be a couple of hours well spent!!

MAP : map sanctuary

The highlight of the visit must be the Condor flying!! – I thought I had seen everything when visiting Scottish Golden Eagles – but these massive birds are something to behold close up – and I mean CLOSE UP!! – REALLY CLOSE UP AND PERSONAL!!!

CONDOR VIDEOS TO FOLLOW!!!

Take the bus from Cusco (the Cusco to Pisac/Calca bus) and ask the driver to stop at the sanctuary. It costs 2 soles on the slow local bus or 4 soles on the white van bus. Anymore details, just give me a shout ………………
