A Mayan Temple In Pompeii
The archaeological site of Pompeii in southern Italy was an ancient Roman town situated near modern Naples. It was covered in six meters of ash and pumice by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The site lay virtually undisturbed until its initial discovery in 1599 and further excavation by Rocque de Alcubierre in 1748.
The exciting part about this is that the town is a fully preserved time capsule of Roman life in 79AD. What you see today has not been tampered with over time and therefore accurate to assume the structures are true historical records.
So what has this to do with this book?
What we found in one of the fully excavated villas is an exact scaled reproduction of a Mayan temple at Chichen Itza. The conclusion is obvious that either Roman or Phoenician traders travelled to the Yucatan in Mexico and returned to Pompeii prior to 79 A.D.
We have the photographic evidence and the measurements for you to make an informed decision of what you are about to see. Even better, like us, go there look and review the physical evidence and make your personal conclusion.
Modern archaeologists find new material difficult to embrace because it challengers old entrenched ideas and concepts.
However this discovery will change the perception of the age of the Mayan archaeological site of Chichen Itza in Mexico. It also changes forever the question, did early Roman of Phoenician traders travel to Mexico and now the answer is, yes they certainly did.
So please join us on the journey of a lifetime as we go to a new place in our understanding of ancient Mexico and the Roman world.
The Roman Fountain of Hersonissos
Aelia lived in a time when the great Roman Empire stretched from Constantinople across the Mediterranean to the Greek island of Creta et Cyrenaica, the year was 69AD. She was a fragile child indulged by her father Marcus Aquila and tutored in all the disciplines of the classical world by her tutor Caius.
Their villa was built on the edge of the harbour of Chersonesos overlooking the ocean, their garden was built to extend the house to the edge of the harbour wall to entertain the many guests and merchants who came to buy the precious olive oil.
Each day trading ships would arrive from Rome, Gaul, the Iberian coast and Alexandria bringing much needed woven cloth, wheat grain and wine. In return they bought large amphora's of the olive oil of Creta, which was prized by the wealthy citizens of Rome above all others for its unique depth of flavor and fragrance.
Watching her father collect taxes was of no interest to Aelia and she was bored. Her eyes scanned the harbour walls as men who wished to trade were in deep discussions with those from the Roman town of Lyttos which was some hours further inland. Aelia's attention was drawn to a lone sailor standing near the food stalls which served gruel to hungry men with little money.
