Ancient Civilization Beneath Death Valley?

Another old mystery of ancient civilizations is unsolved in Death Valley, which may conceal an underground city that was described in Paihute Indian legend. The city apparently was first described 68 years ago, in Bourke Lee's book, "Death Valley Men."


In the book chapter: "Old Gold", Bourke Lee describes a conversation which he had several years ago with a small group of Death Valley residents.

At one point two of the men, Jack and Bill, described their experience with an 'underground city which they claimed to have discovered in 1931 after one of them had fallen through the bottom of an old mine shaft near Wingate Pass.

Besides they claimed to have discovered preserved mummies of "a race of men eight to nine feet tall” in several caverns which they have followed about 20 miles north into the heart of the Panamint Mountains.

Evidence of a lost civilization in Death Valley came in a bizarre report of caves and mummies in the Hot Citizen, a Nevada paper, on August 5, 1947.

Some highlights from the article:

A band of amateur archaeologists announced today they have discovered a lost civilization of men nine feet tall in Californian caverns. Howard E. Hill, spokesman for the expedition, said the civilization may be "the fabled lost continent of Atlantis".

The caves contain mummies of men and animals and implements of a culture 80,000 years old but more advanced than ours.

One cavern contained their ritual hall with devices and markings similar to the Masonic order.

A long tunnel from this ritual temple hall took the party into a room where, well-preserved remains of dinosaurs, saber-toothed tigers, imperial elephants and other extinct beasts were paired off in niches as if on display.

The 32 caves covered a 180-square-mile area in California's Death Valley and southern Nevada.

According to Howard E. Hill some catastrophe apparently drove the people into the caves.

  1. YUROK INDIAN GIRL RECALLS THE LOST WA-GAS TRIBE


    In one of the first books ever published by a Native American woman, Lucy Thompson devotes an entire chapter to the topic of white people. She gives vivid descriptions of indigenous caucasian tribes called the “Wa-gas” in her part of the hemisphere – what is now the northwest region of the USA.
    When Mrs. Thompson’s ancestors first made their appearance on the Klamath River, it was already inhabited by whites with a highly advanced peaceful culture. These white people inhabited the entire western hemisphere before dark people came and were highly moral and civilized. Mrs. Thompson wrote, “They heartily welcomed the Indians to their country and taught us all of their arts, and sciences [they taught the Indians how to farm, respect for nature, Shamanism and etc.] The [Yurok] recognized the rights of these ancient people as the first possessors of the soil and no difficulties ever arose between the people.” You may be surprised to learn that no Indian tribe or nation claims to be “the first Americans.” The idea is strictly a liberal invention and conceived for political reasons. Lucy goes on to explain, “Their hospitality was exceedingly generous in the welfare of our people and all prospered together in peace and happiness, in their pursuit of human existence. After a time there were inter-marriages between the two races, but these were never promiscuous. For a vast period of time the two races dwelt together in peace and honored homes. Wars and quarrels were unknown in this golden age of happiness. No depredations were ever committed upon the property of their people, as the white people ruled with beacon lights of kindness, and our people still worship the hallowed places where once they trod.” Sadly, the western paradise was not to last…

  2. The image of the stone men ,2nd image down within this article, has either been dupped or is identical to another article/film story in the Arizona Gazzet or Arizona Republic- I cannot recall which .In any case the article was from very early 1900's and was about 2 men that had stummbled by accident into a cave within Az Grand Canyon and within were exceptional caverns and ancient relics of UNKN origins but with Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs along some extended cave walls.Summery was just that - that there were strong evidence "suggesting" that The Grand Canyon had in Fact shown inrefutable ties with the Ancient Egyptian era...Idk how shortly there after but indefinitely there after this printing the U.S.A Govt completely fenced off the portion of the Canyon- complete with Do Not trespass w.clear words of pending results should this not be adhered to.And along the time line either at that same time or after the Govt had established yet another of their no-coincidental millitary bases.And pretty much ceased further explorations or publicity of the story or the possible or unimpossible fact of what was being said. And there is precious little behind that newspaper article of these events and the few images from within the Cave.However As an Arizona Native and life long Phoenician in our State - with deep roots and Deeper connections to the esoteric "realms" and/or the beliefs along these ways I can add to this that there are very many parallel annomolies between the Old, OLD World and the State Arizona- Along all of that into this article present and it's topic It is very interesting and curious if these 2 are connected and it would be interesting indeed if it were proven that the pictures from both of the Stone Mummified Men , Were 2 separate and different ones yet identicle.And If then had they both been of one Origin and had that Source in fact been birthed from somewhere with the Egyptian Ancient Kingdoms...Very Interesting.
