120 Million Year Old Map Found ‑ Proof Of Ancient Civilization
THE MAP OF "THE CREATOR"
A find of Bashkir scientists contraries to traditional notions of human history: stone stabs which is 120 million years
covered with the relief map of Ural Region.
This seems to be impossible. Scientists of Bashkir State University have found indisputable proofs of an ancient
highly developed civilization’s existence. The question is about a great plate found in 1999, with picture of the
region done according to an unknown technology. This is a real relief map. Today’s military has almost similar
maps. The map contains civil engineering works: a system of channels with a length of about 12,000 km, weirs,
powerful dams. Not far from the channels, diamond‑shaped grounds are shown, whose destination is unknown.
The map also contains some inscriptions. Even numerous inscriptions. At first, the scientists thought that was Old
Chinese language. Though, it turned out that the subscriptions were done in a hieroglyphic‑syllabic language of
unknown origin. The scientists never managed to read it¼
“The more I learn the more I understand that I know nothing,”– the doctor of physical and mathematical science,
professor of Bashkir State University, Alexandr Chuvyrov admits. Namely Chuvyrov made that sensational find.
Already in 1995, the professor and his post‑graduate student from China Huan Hun decided to study the
hypothesis of possible migration of Old Chinese population to the territory of Siberia and Ural. In an expedition
to Bashkiria, they found several rock carvings done in Old Chinese language. These finds confirmed the
hypothesis of Chinese migrants. The subscriptions were read. They mostly contained information about trade
bargains, marriage and death registration.
Though, during the searches, notes dated the 18th century were found in archives of Ufa
governor‑general. They reported about 200 unusual stone stabs which were situated not
far from the Chandar village, Nurimanov Region. Chuvyrov and his colleague at once
decided that stabs could be connected with Chinese migrants. Archive notes also reported
that in 17th‑18th centuries, expeditions of Russian scientists who investigated Ural
Region had studied 200 white stabs with signs and patterns, while in early 20th century,
archaeologist A.Schmidt also had seen some white stabs in Bashkiria. This made the
scientist start the search. In 1998, after having formed a team of his students, Chuvyrov
launched the work. He hired a helicopter, and the first expedition carried a flying around
of the places where the stabs were supposed to be. Though, despite all efforts, the ancient
stabs were not found. Chuvyrov was very upset and even thought the stabs were just a beautiful legend.
The luck was unexpected. During one of Chuvyrov’s trips to the village, ex‑chairman of the local agricultural
council, Vladimir Krainov, came to him (apropos, in the house of Krainov’s father, archaelogist Schmidt once
staid) and said: “Are you searching for some stone stabs? I have a strange stab in my yard.”“At first, I did not
took that report seriously, ‑ Chuvyrov told. – Though, I decided to go to that yard to see it. I remember this day
exactly: July 21, 1999. Under the porch of the house, the stab with some dents lied. The stab was so heavy that
we together could not take it out. So I went to the city of Ufa, to ask for help.”
In a week, work was launched in Chandar. After having dug out the stab, the searches were stroke with its size: it
was 148 cm high, 106 cm wide and 16 cm thick. While it weighed at least one ton. The master of the house made
special wooden rollers, so the stab was rolled out from the hole. The find was called “Dashka’s stone” (in honour
of Alexandr Chuvyrov’s granddaughter born the day before it) and transported to the university for investigation.
After the stab was cleaned of earth, the scientists could not entrust to their eyes... “At first sight, ‑ Chuvyrov
sais, ‑ I understood that was not a simple stone piece, but a real map, and not a simple map, but a
three‑dimensional. You can see it yourself.”
“How did we manage to identify the place? At first, we could not imagine the map was so ancient. Happily, relief
of today’s Bashkiria has not changed so much within millions of years. We could identify Ufa Height, while Ufa
Canyon is the main point of our proofs, because we carried out geological studies and found its track where it
must be according to the ancient map. Displacement of the canyon happened because of tectonic stabs which
moved from East. The group of Russian and Chinese specialists in the field of cartography, physics, mathematics,
geology, chemistry, and Old Chinese language managed to precisely find out that the stab contains the map of
Ural region, with rivers Belya, Ufimka, Sutolka,”– Alexandr Chuvyrov said while showing the lines on the stone
to the journalists. – You can see Ufa Canyon – the break of the earth’s crust, stretched out from the city of Ufa to
the city of Sterlitimak. At the moment, Urshak River runs over the former canyon.” The map is done on a scale 1
: 1.1 km.
Alexandr Chuvyrov, being physicist, has got into the habit of entrusting only to results of investigation. While
today there are such facts.
Geological structure of the stab was determined: it cosists of three levels. The base is 14 cm chick, made of the
firmest dolomite. The second level is probably the most interesting, “made” of diopside glas. The technology of
its treatement is not known to modern science. Actually, the picture is marked on this level. While the third level
is 2 mm thick and made of calcium porcelain protecting the map from external impact.
“It should be noticed, ‑ the professor said, ‑ that the relief has not been manually made by an ancient stonecutter.
It is simply impossible. It is obvious that the stone was machined.” X‑ray photographs confirmed that the stab
was of artificial origin and has been made with some precision tools.
At first, the scientists supposed that the ancient map could have been made by the ancient Chinese, because of
vertical inscriptions on the map. As well known, vertical literature was used in Old Chinese language before 3rd
century. To check his supposition, professor Chuvyrov visited Chinese empire library. Within 40 minutes he
could spend in the library according to the permission he looked through several rare books, though no one of
them contained literature similar to that one on the stab. After the meeting with his colleagues from Hunan
university, he completely gave up the version about “Chinese track.” The scientist concluded that porcelain
covering the stab had never been used in China. Although all the efforts to decipher the inscriptions were
fruitless, it was found out that the literature had hieroglyphic‑syllabic character. Chuvyrov, however, states he
has deciphered one sign on the map: it signifies latitude of today’s city of Ufa.
The longer the stab was studied, the more mysteries appeared. On the map, a giant irrigative system could be
seen: in addition to the rivers, there are two 500‑metre‑wide channel systems, 12 dams, 300‑500 metres wide,
approximately 10 km long and 3 km deep each. The dams most likely helped in turning water in either side, while
to create them over 1 quadrillion cubic metres of earth was shifted. In comparison with that irrigative system,
Volga‑Don Channel looks like a scratch on the today’s relief. As a physicist, Alexandr Chuvyrov supposes that
now mankind can build only a small part of what is pictured on the map. According to the map, initially, Belaya
River had an artificial river‑bad.
It was difficult to determine even an approximate age of the stab. At first,
radiocarbonic analysis was carried out, afterwards levels of stab were scanned
with uranium chronometer, though the investigations showed different results and
the age of the stab remained unclear. While examining the stone, two shells were
found on its surface. The age of one of them – Navicopsina munitus of Gyrodeidae
family ‑ is about 500 million years, while of the second one – Ecculiomphalus
princeps of Ecculiomphalinae subfamily ‑ is about 120 million years. Namely that age was accepted as a “working
version.”“The map was probably created at the time when the Earth’s magnetic pole situated in the today’s area
of Franz Josef Land, while this was exactly 120 million years ago, ‑ professor Chuvyrov says. – The map we have
is beyond of traditional perception of mankind and we need a long time to get used to it. We have got used to our
miracle. At first we thought that the stone was about 3,000 years. Though, that age was gradually growing, till we
identified the shells ingrained in the stone to sign some objects. Though, who could guarantee that the shell was
alive while being ingrained in the map? The map’s creator probably used a petrified find.”
What could be the destination of the map? That is probably the most interesting thing. Materials of the Bashkir
find were already investigated in Centre of Historical Cartography in Visconsin, USA. The Americans were
amazed. According to them, such three‑dimensional map could have only one destination – a navigational one,
while it could be worked out only through aerospace survey. Moreover, namely now in the US, work is being
carried out at creation of world three‑dimensional map like that. Though, the Americans intend to complete the
work only to 2010. The question is that while compiling such three‑dimensional map, it is necessary to work over
too many figures. “Try to map at least a mountain! – Chuvyrov says. – The technology of compiling such maps
demands super‑power computers and aerospace survey from the Shuttle.” So, who then did created this map?
Chuvyrov, while speaking about the unknown cartographers, is wary: “I do not like talks about some UFO and
extraterrestrial. Let us call the author of the map simply – the creator.”
It looks like that who lived and built at that time used only air transport means: there is no ways on the map. Or
they, probably, used water ways. There is also an opinion, that the authors of the ancient map did not live there at
all, but only prepared that place for settlement through draining the land. This seems to be the most probable
version, though nothing could be stated for the time being. Why not to assume that the authors belonged to a
civilization which existed earlier?
Latest investigations of the map bring one sensation after another. Now, the scientists are sure of the map being
only a fragment of a big map of the Earth. According to some hypothesis, there were totally 348 fragments like
that. The other fragments could be probably somewhere near there. In outskirts of Chandar, the scientists took
over 400 samples of soil and found out that the whole map had been most likely situated in the gorge of
Sokolinaya Mountain (Falcon Mountain). Though, during the glacial epoch it was tore to pieces. But if the
scientists manage to gather the “mosaic,” the map should have an approximate seize of 340 x 340 m. After
having studied the archive materials, Chuvyrov ascertained approximate place where four pieces could be
situated: one could lie under one house in Chandar, the other – under the house of merchant Khasanov, the third
– under one of the village baths, the fourth – under the bridge’s pier of the local narrow‑gauge railway.
In the meanwhile, Bashkir scientists send out information about their find to different scientific centres of the
world; in several international congresses, they have already given reports on the subject: The Civil Engineering
Works Map of an Unknown Civilization of South Ural.”
The find of Bashkir scientists has no analogues. With only one exclusion. When the research was at its height, a
small stone – chalcedony ‑ got to professor Chuvyrov’s table, containing a similar relief. Probably somebody, who
saw the stab wanted to copy the relief. Though, who and why?
