While searching through some satellite images of the Xian area,
we came across one that appeared to have an arrow on it, we thought
strange having an arrow on the ground. On closer inspection we
realized that we had found one of the Chinese pyramids, the
point of the arrow was really two of the corners of the pyramid and
the shaft was a roadway.
The next task was to see if this pyramid matched any of the ones that had been already photographed by Hartwig Hausdorf. At first we thought no, but we had missed out the old black and white photo from 1947. This image seemed to match perfectly, as you will see.
First the basic shape of the pyramid is the same with a flat square
top, and the sides also seem to have the same indent at their
centre. At the front there is a centre path/road leading away from
the pyramid, with two patches of trees, one on either side. The left
hand one is not squared of with the pyramid but has a slight
diagonal edge towards the centre path that can be seen in both
images. One square of trees is missing but all the other shaped
areas in front of the pyramid are correct. The objects (trees or
houses) in the rear of the pyramid can also be seen in the image.
During our ongoing research in latter part of 1998 we had been using the Internet to search for information on ancient sites around the world. We came across a web site that had new information about Chinese Pyramids. The site had an article by Hartwig Hausdorf called The Exterritorial Legacy, this article gives his own ideas on the origin of the pyramids. The site had a number of Photographs that were taken by the author Hartwig Hausdorf, when he was able to gain access to a number of locations in China that are normally of limits to visitors.
This is one of main reasons that so little is know about them, The Pyramids are located in a 100km area around the city Xian, which is well known as the location of the terracotta warriors. These Warriors guard another pyramidal mound that is supposed to be tomb of Chin, the first emperor of China. There could be up to 100 pyramids in this part of China.
Using computer technology we first enlarged and enhanced the photo, then printed it out on two A3 sheets, this allowed us to work out an approximate layout of the pyramids on the ground.
We now needed to know the cardinal directions relative to the
layout of the pyramids. As there was no information available, this
might have been a problem. The solution was in part of the enlarged
photograph. You can roughly work out the height and therefore the
position of the sun by using the length of the shadows made by the
trees (about 32 degrees). Now transferring this information and the
reference to information form the photographer's article to a Dos
version of Skyglobe on the computer, we find it is about 14.30
Hrs in the afternoon and the Sun is in the Southwest. With this
information we get an idea of the alignment of the site, with the
four central pyramids lying on the east- west axis.
Now with all this new information we used Skyglobe on the computer to examine this area of the sky backwards through time and more specifically to the date of 10,500 B.C.. Graham Hancock ideas have shown that this date may have some importance in unraveling the past. We find that the constellation of Gemini is rising on the spring equinox on that date, with the pyramids matching the sky, at sunrise.
This was all done with some computer technology and some technical drawing experience, it should be treated as theory at the moment. The only way to confirm our ideas it is to do a professional site survey. We have posted these to get your opinion on our idea as this may help compound the theory of Graham Hancock.
This can be taken one step further by overlaying all the images to form just one image, the result as you can see is very striking...
This is the second sky ground correlation that we have found in the
pyramids of china, we can only guess at the number of other sites
that if studied in this way would show similar results. If you find
this as fascinating as we do and you won't to find out more, then
you should look at the web sites of the founders of these theories,
Robert G. Bauval and Graham Hancock.
