An Ancient Mystery

23 Oct

These are two photographs I took a few years back.

The subject matter was first located by my brother, who shared his find with me years later. We both have a very great interest in Aboriginal history and its Spirituality with the land. My Brother travels many ancient Aboriginal lands, and is forever finding evidence of a history of a great wonderful race of people, who held this land and the Great Architect of the Universe,our Creator, who gave him these lands to walk upon and cherish.

We believe they are of an Aboriginal origin and many hundreds of years old.

The site is not disclosed, as we both believe that the monument should be left to its own history, and the memories of those ancient hands, who took the time to erect this stone Cairn.

    Beautiful and powerful, Ian. Sad that cherishing our earth is no longer an integral part of our way of life.

      Good afternoon Sue, we will be returning to that site sometime in the future,
      we didnt have much time to actually explore the whole area, that too is a very Spiritual place.
      Wishing you a great weekend.

    Loved this find Emu… And I find these wonderful megalithic monuments fascinating as they show how cultures throughout the various countries all did something similar within their ancient history.. Thank you for sharing this sacred site Ian…
    I found more here on Wikipedia..

      Hi Sue, have many other pics of various finds, but at this stage they cant be published.
      It was quite an experience standing in the vicinity of that Cairn, again a Spiritual feeling rising.
      My Brother developed goose bumps and the air felt very quiet there.
      Another one of my Must Return trips I envisage.

        I can only imagine that feeling Ian, as many of the stone circles in England I have been around also have that same quality of Sacred Spirit about them.

          I think we both appreciate the power that remains from past Souls.
          Their aura lingers in the relics and artefacts they left behind.

    very interesting, Ian… we do have ‘cairns’ in Bretagne(Brittany), Western(Atlantic) region of France: mounds of rough stones built as a memorial or landmark, typically on a hilltop or skyline…

      Hi Melanie, yes I have read up on the Cairns throughout Brittany, there are many of them all over the various countrysides.
      I think I read that most of them date back to the medieval days, and the Celts and Moors days.
      Your Brittany is steeped in ancient history.
      You live in a fascinating part of the world Melanie.

    Sounds like the original custodians of this land were a great and rich people in knowledge and culture.

    God Bless! 🙂

      Your words are very true Prenin.
      Sadly today, as in many cultures, their knowledge is now handed down by word of mouth.
      Thanks to the white man, their ability to interact with the lands has been curtailed.

    Neat, Ian … I betcha it’s a memorial or burial place … After my baby died, I kept her ashes with me for a year, now she rests in the Atlantic Ocean near Pictou Island … so I have no grave to go to … but grandpa helped me move a boulder to a secret spot in our woods … I worked for many days to carve roses, her name and a cross into that boulder … that was in 1987 … it’s still there under a huge spruce tree … I still go there once in a while … no matter what the weather … in the winter I put up a lantern and light it … looks beautiful in the snow … her name was Jennifer Rose … next time I go there, I will take a pic for you … Love, cat.

      Good afternoon Cat, hope your having a great weekend.
      We do think that Cairn is actually an ancient burial site
      but we have to do more research yet as navigation markers appear similar.
      What a beautiful private memorial site you have created for your beautiful Jennifer Rose.
      Please do take a picture to share Cat, it sounds like a beautiful resting place for a Sleeping Beauty.
      My daughter who is 23 is named Jennifer.

    Fascinating and curious remains. Honored to have this glimpse of their past. These are good examples of a people ‘living’ with the land.

      Good afternoon Eddie, it is are rather interesting Cairn, we believe it to be an Aboriginal burial cairn, but we need to do more research, as a lot of old navigation markers were erected similar in ancient days.
      Wishing you a great weekend.

    This is special i can imagine how the Aboriginals buried their dead people. But indeed who knows the real meaning of the rocks.

      Good afternoon my friend, thanks for the visit.
      We do think its an Aboriginal burial mound but we have to do more research as there are many navigation markers similar.
      Wishing you a beautiful weekend.

    Are they burial markers? tributes?

    • The Emu

      October 23, 2014 at 10:34 am

      We think it is gp, and might have the remains of a great Aboriginal in a sitting position.
      All through that area we locate large rock walls, that we think may have been a corralling system for kangaroos.

        If it is a burial marker, Ian, it would be very fitting for a great Aboriginal to have been buried there, and yes, he may very well have been buried in a sitting position. This Cairn is very well put together and if undisturbed might last for thousands of years. I wonder how old it is already? 🙂

        • The Emu

          October 27, 2014 at 5:15 am

          We feel pretty sure its an Aboriginal burial Cairn Uta, he was probably buried sitting with Kangaroo and Possums skins, he would probably have had his Boomerangs and Spears as well, I think from other ancient constructions nearby, that it might be about 25,000 years old, we need more research done with assistance from a museum possibly.

            25.000 years, I say this is quite impressive. I imagine it may have survived a few bush fires over the years!

          • The Emu

            October 27, 2014 at 5:50 am

            Definitely a few bushfires Uta, and also seen the changing patterns of many seasons.
            Witnessed the birth of new life with the dawning of every new day.
