Australia has often been called the worlds oldest continent with the most recent past. We beg to disagree. The worlds oldest microfossils, dating back at least 3,000 million years occur in rocks from Western and South Australia, and fossil hominid skull-types of undoubted Homo erectus, dating from early Pleistocene deposits, recovered by us over the past 30 years from sites in the NSW Central West and Blue Mountains, are part of a broader picture, showing that Homo erectus and his offshoot, the earliest modern humans [Homo sapiens], were already present here by almost 2 million and 300,000 years BP [Before Present], well before the arrival of our earliest Aboriginal people [Australoids] from South-east Asia a mere 65,000 years ago. Fossil footprints of both modern height and giant-size hominids are to be found across Australia, in deposits demonstrating an Old Stone-Age past to rival that of Africa. While many populations of our early modern human ancestors migrated beyond Australia, over a then-continuous land shelf to mainland Asia, those that remained here, we argue, eventually developed the beginnings of what was to become the first civilisation on earth, in the form of the megalithic culture which paralleled their development of an an advanced stone-age astronomical/mathematical science which would one day rival that of the Mayans of Yucatan. These ancient Australian star-gazers also developed a written language which now only survives in rock inscriptions. It

took this author [Rex Gilroy] 28 years of painstaking research to finally crack the translation of this undoubted mother language, yet from 1974 when I first discovered this rock script [near Katoomba NSW], one word frequently appeared Uru, which we would discover was the name of this people and their culture. From discoveries of large serpent and eagle-shaped altar stones at Blue Mountains locations by me in 1965, we have over the past 33 years of marriage uncovered extensive astronomicallyarranged alignments of standing stones, stone circles, earthen and stone pyramids, huge megalithic temples and tombs of this people throughout Australia and New Zealand, tracing their movements eastwards across the pacific to the Americas and mainland Asia to Europe in the pre-dawn mists of recorded history. From their rock inscriptions we have identified a pantheon of deities, at the head of which was Ay-I the Supreme Being; Nif the Earth-Mother and Nim, their child the Sun-God, whom I-na, the Eagle of the Sun, carried across the heavens each day. Nims sister was Ara the Moon Goddess, protected by the Owl deity, Ma. Some 67 other lesser deities are known. We have also uncovered the names of a growing number of monarchs kings and queens, backed up by a priestly caste and warrior armies who kept the ordinary people in line, and upon whom they relied to help erect the massive, weathering granite and basalt stoneworks that have survivied their passing. Ancient Melanesian, Polynesian and Australian Aboriginal traditions speak of the Uru as being a fair-skinned race. The name

Blue Mountains UFO Research Club Newsletter June, 2005.

Uru and its variations follows the megaliths to the Americas as well as the Old World. It only dies with the last megaliths erected on the Isle of Aran off the Irish coast. Aran is another Uru variant and Uru is the root word for Aryan, the word meaning noble. Thus the Aryans are the noble race which, it appears, evolved in Australia. That the Uru spread from Australia can be seen in the scientific dates given to the megalithic culture sites across the Old World. The Aran monuments date back to 1500BC while Englands Stonehenge and Frances Carnac sites date around 3000BC; those of Malta and eastern Europe are around 4500BC in age, while datings for the Indian, south-east China, Japan and Island south-east Asia vary between 5000 to 8000BC. In New Guinea and Island Melanesia they vary between 4000 and 13,000 even 50,000 and on into preAboriginal times [ie over 65,000 years ago], with megalithic sites in Central Western NSW perhaps the oldeest human structures on earth. Sumerian traditions speak of the whie-skinned Uru as the first men and women, driven out of the lost paradise of Uru by natural disasters, which was probably the drying up of much of Asutralia at the close of the last ice-age. They arrived in the Persian Gulf in large ships introducing civilisation to Mesopotamia. From here the Lost Paradise [always located in the southernmost region of the world, across the Indian Ocean] tradition would in time be passed on to the Egyptians, where the Greek traveller Solon learnt of it [the Egyptians knew it as KentiAmenti, the fabled Land of the Gods], subsequently relaying the tradition back to Greece, where it was to be known by the Greek word Atlantis. We argue that, Uru was the origin of the Atlantis legend of Plato, and that its remains should be sought here in Australia. Our findings, supported by a mass of relics and rock inscriptions, together with a mass of photos are presented in our new book Uru The Lost Civilisation of Australia [URU Publications 2005] due for release in late August 2005. ***** The tradition of a mysterious Lost Paradise, often described as possessing a great red rock at its centre, located in the

southernmost region of the world, was widely known to the civilisations of the Old and New Worlds, from where over the centuries, expeditions would set sail in search of the land of origin of all mankind and its fabled riches. This was the catalyst that drew great fleets of ships from Asia, Sumer, Phoenicia and the land of the Nile, particularly with the onset of the Bronze Age [2000-1400BC], when the Pharaohs of Egypt themselves dispatched great fleets of large wooden ships, navigated by expert Phoenician mariners, with great numbers of people and supplies, to seek out and colonise this land, from where they would extract vast quantities of tin and copper [needed to manufacture bronze], gold, silver other precious stones and pearls as described in our book Pyramids in the Pacific The Unwritten History of Australia [URU Publications 2000,2005]. In their wake they have left behind them crumbling stone rubble pyramids and other ruins and rock inscriptions, often nearby their ancient, abandoned open-cut mines, revealing an unknown history of Australian discovery and colonisation too often suppressed by conservative university-based historians, who would prefer that we knew nothing about this hidden history, in favour of the landfall of Captain James Cook RN [1770]! ***** Just how far these expeditions sailed is still argued by cultural diffusionists, although evidence suggests many sailed on through Torres Strait and on to Polynesia, thence the Americas, leaving behind them cultural influences which are still evident today. Among these influences are the mummification rites formerly practiced by Torres Strait Islanders, with variations in New Guinea native tribes and certain Aboriginal tribespeople of far north Queensland and the Gosford-Sydney districts of NSW; Egyptian origin Sun worship practices, and the ruins of Egyptain-style Sun-worship megalithic temples and stepped pyramids at which ancient Egyptain, Libyan and Phoenician inscriptions have been found over a wide area of island Melanesia. Often examples of mixed EgyptoPhoenician and Celto-Phoenician rock script are found in areas formerly colonised by the ancient mineral-seekers. This implies that these colonies in many cases lasted for

many generations, in the course of which the mixed racial population mixed their cultural ideas and written scripts. CeltoPhoenician script is commonplace in areas of Queensland and NSW in the vicinity of ancient open-cut mining sites, and dates from around 1500BC when these two peoples made joint colonising voyages to island south-east Asia and beyond. Mixed Egyptian, Phoenician, Libyan and Celtic rock scripts have been uncovered in New Zealands North Island, where in 2000 my wife and I uncovered a megalithic circle, which contianed many stones which bore Egypto-Phoenician script, identifying it as an ancient Masonic temple of around 900BC. On the Atherton Tableland behind Cairns in 1989 Heather and I uncovered , deep in jungle country, a crumbling, stepped 15m tall ceremonial Sun-worship pyramid, enclosed by a former wall now turned to rubble. Over the years since then we have recovered a number of votive offering inscribed stone slabs left by worshippers, and two large boulders bearing Egypto-Phoenician messages identifying the structure as a Ra worship temple built by the miners from the mountains. The structure is composed of smelted copper ore, reef quartz and other rubble. Its style suggests an age of around the 3rd Egyptian dynasty [ie 2650BC]. Its location is a closely-guarded secret to prevent the kind of vandalism that befell the famous Gympie Pryamid, discovered by us in 1975. It was soon reduced to rubble by treasure-hunters and religious fanatics following the advertising of its location by a local journalist who we foolishly believed would keep the location secret if we showed him. We know of other pyramidal structures constructed at ancient colony sites and intend to keep their locations secret for this reason. The Gympie Pyramid was a stepped structure of 60m height that stood on the edge of a former harbour that was entered from Tin Can Bay, about 50km to the east. Traces of ancient settlement surrounding this structure have vanished with the spread of modern housing, although other sites exist in the gold and copper-bearing forest-covered mountains west of the town, where ancient open-cut mining operations have been found, together with tell-tale rock scripts. It is estimated that the colony

would have supported at least 3,000 people. Much has been written on the Old Kingdom period [2780-2100BC] Egyptain hieroglyphic site located within sight of Broken Bay/Brisbane Waters near Gosord, and near the mouth of the Hawkesbury River north of Sydney. Eight cartouches record the names of eight LOCAL Pharaohs who ruled over a great colony established here, for the purpose of mining the gold, copper, silver and tin of the Bowral district, reached by triremes venturing up the river then southward into the adjoining Nepean River, from where they open-cut mined valleys in the Mitagong-Bowral area, at which we are still turning up ancient MiddleEast rock inscriptions. During this time the colonists venrtured onto the Blue Mountains, for their rock scripts have been found as far west hereabouts as Katoomba and Mt Victoria. Such colonies became so populated that it became necessary to establish local ruling classes, as revealed in our book, Pyramids in the Pacific. Like other cultures that followed them, the ancient Phoenician, Egyptain, Libyan and Celtic mariners explored the coastal rivers deep inland in search of possible mining and gemstone sites. They certainly penetrated the Murray/Darling system, venturing into its offshoots - the Macquarie, Namoi-Peel and Gwydir Rivers. This explains the numbers of inscribed stones recovered over the years as far inland as the Bathurst/Oberon district; Tamworth/Nundle areas and the Moree district all good gold, copper, tin, silver and gemstone bearing regions where remains of ancient Mediterranean pottery and open-cut mining operations continue to be uncovered by locals. When our book Pyramids in the Pacific The Unwritten History of Australia was published, revealing these and many more startling facts, it did not take long for academia to act. A delegation, which included an aging former Labour Party politican, visited us at our Katoomba home, appealing to us to remove the book from sale, until it could be edited of certain material. Then, they informed us, we would have permission to resume publication. It was obvious they did not like this book, but then we did not write it for the approval of Univesity experts, but for the general

public to make up their own minds about our continents ancient past! ***** While Phoenician and Egyptian trireme loads of men, women and children were colonising these shores, other maritme civilisations were on the rise who would add their own names to the unwritten history of Australia. One of these was China. Beijing University researchers announced back in December 1961, that Australia and America had both been visited and explored well over 2,000 years before the first European explorers to these lands. Their claims went ignored by European historians at the time, particularly here in Australia. However, there is available a mass of evidence, in the form of ancient maps, surviving copper scrolls and other written records preserved in China, not to forget a growing number of ancient relics being recovered from around Australia, to demonstrate a Chinese presence here over 2,500 years before Captain James Cook became the last explorer to discover Australia! The first discoverer of Australia was surely an Asian; for it is certain that seafarers from Java, Timor and elsewhere in south-east Asia, were searching our waters for pearls and minerals centuries before the rise of the Near and Middle-East Bronze Age civilisations. China came to dominate the waters of Australasia, in the course of which their cartographers mapped the region. It was Franciscan missionaries who went to China in the 16th century, who were the first Europeans to obtain written evidence of Chinese contacts with Australia. This evidence included copper scrolls dating to the 6th century AD onwards, and a crude 6th century map of Australia. These scrolls speak of voyages across the Pacific Ocean in the 10th and 11th centuries in gigantic fleets of massive junks 60 to 100 ships carrying hundreds of passengers each. The book, Atlas of Foreign Countries, written between 265 and 316AD describes the far north coast of the Great South Land of Chui Hiao [ie Great Golden Land], and that it lay 30,000 li away from southern China. Here plants grow leaves in winter and lose them in summer this is what happens in Australia, which lies in the south temperate zone of the southern

hemisphere, and whose seasons are the opposite of those of china in the northern temperate zone, where plants grow leaves in summer and lose them in winter. The book The Sui Shu [History of the Sui Dynasty], written in 636AD, records the oral traditions of mariners, of various lands lying in the Australasian region. It states that, in the southern land of Chui Hiao, there lives a bird called the Shelli which understands human speech [a reference to our indigenous parrots?]. Here fierce black people throw a weapon, the Lun dao, or circular knives with deadly accuracy. If these weapons miss their target, they return to the thrower! There are also dark-furred tall animals called Shuti, or Giant hopping hare. The females of these animals carry their young in a pouch attached to their bodies! In 1968 a 2,000 year old vase bearing a crude map of the Australian east coast was discovered in Hong Kong. Another map, dating around 2,000 years old and drawn on porcelain, exists in Taipei University, Taiwan. It shows the southern coastline of New Guinea, the east coast of Australia as far south as the Melbourne area, and the crude outline of Tasmanias north coast. Other maps of the period show the crudely drawn, entire continental coastline. Another, world map, engraved on a copper sheet, besides the major continental landmasses, includes the crude outline of the Southern Land of Chui Hiao In 1948 fragments of Ming period [14th century] blue and white porcelain were dug up on Winchelsea Island, north-west of Groote Eylandt; and a large Chinese copper urn of this age was unearthed in Arnhem Land some years ago. In 1957 an ancient jade image of Buddha was unearthed deep below ancient soil deposits in bushland outside Cooktown, and in 1958, inland from the NSW mid north coast town of Taree, bushwalkers uncovered the large cliffside relief carving of Buddha, another such image exists on a Brisbane district cliffside. One of the most improtant relics supporting ancient Chinese Australian contacts, was recovered on Manyana Beach, north of Milton on the NSW south coast, when one day in 1980, 10 year old Melissa Barclay found a carved sandstone human head, projecting from a sandy hillside. Later donated to me, and

measuring 21.5cm tall by 18.5cm thick and 13.5cm wide, the head has been identified as that of the Chinese goddess, Shao Lin, protectoress of mariners at sea. The site of the find was on the edge of an extinct harbour that around 2,000 years ago once extended a considerable distance inland, creating a safe haven for any visiting Chinese ships. Could the image have been left here by departing Chinese crewmen, as an offering to the goddess for a safe voyage home as was the custom? ***** While Chinese and other explorers were more than mere causal visitors to our shores, in far away Tibet, scholars were also aware of the sacred Lost Paradise, the Dagop, as the centre of which stood the Navel of the World, a great red rock! It is a mysterious fact that Ayers Rock was known to just about every Old and New World maritime culture! At least two miniature reconstructions of the great red rock existed in temples at Lhasa, one erected in the middle of a reconstruction of the Lost Paradise, as a large island surrounded by water in a miniature lake. Both have since been destroyed by Chinese communists. Across the Pacific, the Amerindians were also somehow aware of the Lost Paradise of the west, which they located in the Australian region. The Aztecs, who arose in northern Mexico around 1200AD, somehow knew of lands across the Pacific, which they regarded as a great river. A map drawn some time before 1520, describes this river as leading to the Lost Paradise of Culhuacasn, or land of the Serpent, at the centre of which is depicted a good likeness of Ayers Rock [Uluru]. Similar knowledge of the great red rock that stood at the centre of the lost paradise to the west existed among the Mayans, who began in southern Mexico, Guatemala and areas of Belise about 2000BC; and the Inca empire of Peru, which began around 1438 and lasted until 1532 with the arrival of the Spanish conquistadores. These and other Amerindian cultures of the South American west coast were gifted mariners who put to sea, often in enormous single-sailed balsa wood rafts, navigating on the Peru Current which, flowing north along the coast, turns west into the South Equatorial Current, which would carry rafts into the waters of Island Melanesia and north Queensland,

while an offshoot of the South Equatorial, the Australian Current, could have carried rafts to southern Queensland and NSW, before turning towards New Zealand and eastwards into the Peru Current.. The expeditions of Thor Heyerdahl [Kon Tiki, 1948] and Vital Alsar [La Balsas, 1973] have proven the feasibility of crossPacific voyages in antiquity. But what evidence is there for Australian-Amerindian contacts? During Septmeber 1973, Mrs Josephine Jacoby of Sydney NSW, while on a bus tour of Central Australia, was photographing scenery near Alice Springs, when she found a 4cm tall basalt-type rock figurine exposed on the ground. It was later identified as a Tiahuanacan fertility god. It was also near Alice Springs in 1974, that people exploring in the Haarts Range entered a small valley to find, projecting from soil on a rock shelter floor, several 5cm tall, baked pottery Peruvian figurines. Interestingly, the former Aboriginal tribespeople of the distict once practiced a Peruvian form of cranial trepanation. Amerindians would have reached the Red Centre via the former inland sea that opened into the Guld of Carpentaria in those times. Fragments of Peruvian pottery have often been found along the Queensland coast, while several Mayan-style engravings have been found on slate rocks in the Glasshouse Mountains area north of Brisbane. During October 2002 Heather and I stumbled upon a ruined stone wall and

scattered rubble, the remains of a possible temple in the Cooktown district. Projecting from the ground I retrieved a 41.5cm long by 24.5cm wide and 7cm thick stone slab, bearing the weathered carving of a reclining human figure on one side holding a bowl. The head had a right and left eye, with a tear coming from the right eye and saliva from the right side of the mouth. On the other side of the stone was the image of an eye with a tear coming from the left side, and the head of a two-eyed serpent, a tear coming from the right eye. The image matched others from Mayan sites in Mexico, of the Rain God, Chac Mool, the bowl being for the receiving of human hearts as payment for his rain when found on Chac Mool life-size images carved in the round. A dozen other images recovered from here on our 2003 expedition to Cooktown included weathered images of Kan, the Mayan maise god, a stone human head yet to be identified, and the head of the Jaguar God. We also unearthed a foot carving, which engravings identified as an image of Bolonyocte, the Mayan God of Travellers. Two earthen and stone pyramidal mounds located deep in nearby jungle still await further inspection, and I located rock piles over an extensive area of scrub which may be dwelling remains. We believe we have discovered a Mayan colony. It could date to any time between 250 and 900AD, which was the golden age of Mayan maritime achievement, when large fleets of huge balsa wood single-sailed rafts carrying great numbers of people and supplies, were sailing westwards across the Pacific Ocean to trade with islanders of the Central Pacific, as well as colonise lands and to search for precious metals and gemstones. Obviously many explorers returned, with tales of the lands they had seen, including the land of red soil, at the centre of which rose a great red rock the Mount of Creation. There is little doubt in our minds that this great red rock was none other than Uluru! -0-

Egyptians placed the God Set as the ruler of the mysterious Land of the Gods, Khenti-amenti. It was described as a hot desert land, but also one of mountains and forests, located in the southernmost region of the world. The description of the God Set mystifies Egyptologists, for his features match no known animal of the ancient world. Yet it has been pointed out that his general body shape and that he carries a pouch attached to his body, identifies Set with but one animal, the Kangaroo! He was the Father of the Gods.
