Ancient book contains detailed drawings of a fourth pyramid in Giza

According to ancient texts there was a fourth pyramid located at Giza plateau and it was made of a dark or black granite-like stone.

During the 1700’s, Frederic Norden, a Danish naval captain, and explorer, made extensive notes, drawings and maps of pyramids, ancient monuments and the architecture, etc. which was published in his book Voyage d’Egypte et de Nubie.


On page 120 of his book Norden describes the mysterious fourth Pyramid:

"The principal pyramids are at the east, south-east of Gize.
There are four of them; that deserve the greatest attention of the curious.
For tho we see seven or eight others in the neighborhood, they are nothing in comparison to the former.
The two most northerly pyramids are the greatest and have five hundred feet perpendicular height. The two others are much less, but have some particularities, which occasion their being examined and admired."

"It is without coating, closed and resembles the others, but without any temple like the first.
It has however, one particular deserving remark; which is, that its summit is terminated by a single great stone, which seems to have served as a pedestal.
The fourth pyramid has been made, upwards above the middle, of a stone more black than the common granite, and at least as hard. Its summit is of a yellowish stone."

"I shall speak elsewhere of its top, which terminates in a cube.
It is, moreover, situated out of the line of the others being more to the west…it makes a series with the three others."


Although Norden’s descriptions are very detailed and the excellent illustrations show the position of the fourth black pyramid located at some distance from the three well known pyramids at Giza, Egyptologists suggest that Norden accidentally refers to a satellite’ pyramid of Menakure as a fourth pyramid.

But the satellite pyramids are made of sandstone while Norden described in detail that the fourth pyramid was made of a stone harder than granite and very dark or black. It seems unlikely that he has referred to a satellite pyramid.

So, is it possible that the Giza plateau once featured a fourth pyramid made of black or very dark granite or as Col. Vyse already suggested in 1840 that Norden has described one of the Menkaure satellite pyramids as the fourth black pyramid at Giza. The smaller Menkaure pyramids are indeed darker than the other pyramids, but certainly not black.

But something is not right. If we are looking at his drawings we see only four pyramids.

Is it possible that Norden overlooked the satellite pyramids which are close to the other ones?

Given the excellent descriptions and illustrations it seems unlikely that he missed the satellite pyramids, except if they have been (partially) buried in the sand.

Furthermore, let's assume he's right about the existence of a fourth dark/black pyramid, then where are the remains of this pyramid?

Motor trail group surprised by mysterious human-like being in forest of Bandah Aceh, Indonesie

Recently members of a motor trail group took a tour in the forest of Banda Aceh which is the most western province of Sumatra, Indonesie when suddenly a strange small figure emerged from the forest.


As a result the first rider fell to the ground, then the figure stopped on the track, observed the bikers before he ran away with a considerable speed.

Although the bikers on their motorcycles followed the figure who walked barefoot, they were unable to catch up with him. The figure managed to disappear into the forest again.

There is much speculation that the figure was not a human being but is it possible that the figure is a grown adult with dwarfism who lives alone in the forest or may be the figure, given his reaction, is a member of an isolated group or tribe who don’t know the rest of the world exists.

Note: I have asked my Indonesian friends whether there are tribes still living in the forest of Bandah Aceh or not and they told me that there are still tribes living in the forests of Kalimantan and New Guinea Papua but in the forest of Bandah Aceh was very unlikely.

The following video has gone viral in Indonesia and one wonders what or who is the small figure that suddenly appeared in front of the bikers?

Ancient Cosmic Map depicted on 5,000 year-old Cochno Stone?

One of the most fascinating archaeological mysteries is the discovery of the so-called Cochno Stone.


The 5,000-year-old Cochno Stone measuring 42 feet (13 m) by 26 feet (7.9 m) and considered as one of the finest sets of petroglyphs is a large Cup and ring marked rock at Auchnacraig, Faifley, West Dunbartonshire in Scotland and was rediscovered in 1887 by the Rev. James Harvey.

The mysterious stone features around 90 carved indentations that according to some researchers represent an ancient cosmic map detailing planets and stars.

The Mystery of Admiral Richard E. Byrd’s Giant Antarctic Snow Cruiser

Imagine an enormous 45,000 pound vehicle (length 17.0 meters - width 6.06 meters) with giant tires of 1,900 pounds each (height wheels retracted 3.7 meters – height wheels extended 4.9 meters) and powered by two 200-hp diesel engines. On top of that it carries a Navy pursuit plane and it drives over the South Pole’s icy wastelands.


That is exactly what happened in 1939. This giant snow cruiser carried five men and a Navy BI-plane and sufficient equipment for an exploring trip to last a year and it is missing.

The official story tells us that the Antarctic snow cruiser was intended to facilitate transport in Antarctica while the crew consisting of scientists conducted seismologic experiments, cosmic-ray measurements, and ice core sampling while living in the snow- and timber-covered Snow Cruiser.

But it is more likely that the snow cruiser has been used for a secret operation led by Admiral Richard E. Byrd.

As the Americans knew that the Germans were conducting a secret expedition in Antarctica, Admiral Richard E. Byrd received confidential orders from the White House for putting together an American expedition to Antarctica and these orders were a State Department secret, even the existence of the orders had been kept secret.

The possible reason for the expedition… the Americans wanted to be the first to gain entrance and to explore the legendary lands inside the earth beyond the pole.

You have to know that the snow machine was featured in every newspaper headline concerning the preparations for the 1939 Antarctic Expedition and for months Americans had read every tiny detail about the progress of manufacturing the beast.

But after The Snow Cruiser arrived at Little America in the Bay of Whales, Antarctica in early January 1940… the mystery begins… From this point on the snow cruiser was never mentioned again in the newspapers and it was as though the snow cruiser never existed.


There was only a final newspaper article issued on May 15, 1940 of The New York times detailing Admiral Byrd’s report on the findings of the 1939 Antarctic Expedition.

The Admiral reported that the expedition “achieved much more than he thought possible including the discovery of 900 miles of unknown coastline that explorers had been seeking for a hundred years but also in this article he never mentioned the snow cruiser, even stranger what was that apparently he was never asked. The giant machine that had been on everyone’s minds and lips before Byrd left was might never had existed.

During Operation Highjump in late 1946, an expedition team found the abandoned vehicle but inside, the vehicle was exactly as the crew had left it, with papers, magazines, and cigarettes scattered all around. The snow cruiser needed only air in the tires and some servicing to make it operational.

In 1958, an international expedition uncovered the snow cruiser again using a bulldozer. It was covered by several feet of snow but a long bamboo pole marked its position.

Later expeditions reported no trace of the vehicle and now more than 75 years later, it is still unsure where the snow cruiser is and the question remains what happened to the monster machine and the data it was designed to gather and the crew and support team that were left behind to carry on?
