Yes, the Mound Encyclopedia is available and was released in January. It's doing surprisingly well. It is a hardcover library edition, written as a reference book and primarily aimed at libraries.The ISBN is 9780940829466.

Hi Greg, congrats on all the work you have gotten done in the last year.  I will be sure to check out History Quest when it comes on in June.

At Bimini we found the most definitive evidence ever found that the stone structure there is manmade. That will show on the fourth episode of a new series on History, with their premiere episode on the Bermuda Triangle and some of our finds there.

You wouldn't care to elaborate on that anymore, would you?  Have you written up a new report on Bimini or will it only be in the documentary?

I hope you didn't get detained by AUTEC, I have heard that they can be awfully touchy when you come across them.

Welcome back, Greg. If you found new proof that the Bimini Wall is manmade, can I ask if you found anything to alter your earlier conclusion that it was not a creation of Atlantis?

If I may also ask, have you found anything in the last year that you now feel directly relates to Atlantis?  I know that may be a bit of a broad question, open to several different conclusions.

Good suggestion, Horus!  Apparently, here it is:

Report on January/February 2009 Bimini & Andros Expedition

The ARE's Search For Atlantis Project Expands Scope

Bermuda Triangle Mystery Also Explored—More Planes Found

by Dr. Greg Little

From late January to February 13, 2009 Dr. Lora Little and I were involved in a long and often unexpected series of events while exploring Bimini and Andros as part of the ARE's Search For Atlantis Project. Two friends and professionals, filmmaker Stan Prachniak and Kimberly Prachniak, Stan's wife who has a master's degree and works as a research board administrator at a medical school, joined the team for the first half of the expedition. So many things transpired on this extended venture that I simply can't relate them all. Both Stan and Kimberly Prachniak wrote summaries of their experiences. These reports will give people who are interested a good idea of what these trips are really like. Stan's report is here. Kim's report is here.

This trip began the use of our own boat, a 26-foot nameless catamaran powered by a 250 hp, 4-stroke engine that can reach speeds of 55 mph. Unfortunately the top speed can only be reached in ideal conditions, meaning a glass-like surface. Most of the trip we went between 8 mph to 45 mph—a speed seldom reached and only in enclosed, protected harbor-like areas. The boat also has a secondary motor for emergencies, which we used, carries enough fuel for a 300 mile trip (which we used)and fresh water (also used), powerful radios, a satellite phone, side-scan sonar, gps navigation, 2 underwater video systems, and so much more equipment and safety gear that I won't mention it all. It has a draft one one foot.

Thankfully, both Krista and Eslie Brown were along at various times. One interesting and harrowing adventure was when Stan Prachniak and I (with no one else on board) motored the boat 50-miles down the Tongue of the Ocean from Morgan's Bluff at Andros into the main harbor at AUTEC, near Fresh Creek. We did this at night and in bad weather with heavy winds and huge waves. Moving through multiple reefs at night is scary, but we did it without problems. There were a lot of interesting ships moored at AUTEC and we were immediately and sternly ordered out. Three hours earlier we entered Morgan's Bluff through reef after reef that were ominously just below the surface and concealed by whitecap waves driven by high winds.We were pounded by heavy rain that hit so hard we could barely see. In truth, the entire trip was done in high winds, choppy seas and huge, rolling waves.

On the initial part of the trip, over a five-day period, we were accompanied by film production team filming two documentaries for a new series on The History Channel. The series is called "History Quest" and will premiere in June 2009. The first show is on the Bermuda Triangle. The fourth show in the series is on Atlantis.

We took the film crew to several underwater planes and also to several crashed planes on land at Andros. We also took them to several areas where we are certain that remnants of an ancient maritime culture could be found. At the Bimini Road we found some of the most impressive evidence that anyone has ever "uncovered" there. All of the skeptics' claims about the Bimini Road are false except one. They have related that the Bimini Road is constructed of beachrock, and it is. Of course, the original discoverer of the structure, Dr. J. Manson Valentine related that it was made from cut beachrock, but the skeptics ignore that fact and act as if they were the first and only ones to say it. As a sidenote, virtually all of the ancient Mediterranean harbors were made from cut beachrock.

The Bimini Road is an ancient harbor, at least in its most "recent" use, if 3000 BC can be called recent. There are many multiple layers at the formation, with huge cubic stones underlying some of the larger stones that are seen from the surface. Under almost every large block, if one takes the time to actually look, there are wedge stones and cut rectangular blocks that were used for leveling. And toolmarks are apparent on many of these. It takes hard work and time to discover these, something the skeptics failed to do. The Bimini Road controversy, and the involvement of both archaeologists and geologists in what is clearly scientific misconduct, is one of the saddest incidents in modern scientific history.

After the Histrory Channel crew and the Prachniaks flew out of Andros to return to the states, an unexpected problem required that we spend a night on the boat in the ocean. The next day we towed the boat to Nassau (at 8 mph) to have an engine repaired. Lora and I flew back to the states but returned to Bimini only a day later where Eslie Brown had moved the boat after the motor was repaired. We then spent several days exploring other spots on the Great Bahama Bank that we had previously discovered in a 2008 aerial survey.

We investigated about 25 spots finding at least 3 more crashed planes, lots of dumped things (3 cars/trucks), an odd missile or bomb-like object, and curious formations. I speculate that Flight 19 may actually be in this area rather than in the areas much further to the north where virtually all other researchers think it went down. However, the Bermuda Triangle aspect of the search is actually a secondary goal.

Our main goal in this search is to find remnants of building structures that are obvious and definitive. During the last Ice Age, and in the time period from about 3000 BC and earlier, the Great Bahama Bank was above the sea level, consisting of a fairly flat plain extending for several hundred miles in each direction. On the final day of the search we were looking at spots located about 70-miles SSW from Bimini. The weather was windy and the seas choppy. At the end of day, only 15 minutes before we had to make the journey back to Bimini, we found what looks like a building structure on the bottom in about 20-feet of water. There were large stone blocks laying on the top of a more massive formation of sand and grass. Between some of the blocks were the remains of wooden beams that look unlike the remains of wooden ships we have earlier found. The wood appears to have been preserved by usually being covered by sand and the stone itself. But the actual purpose of the stone and wood is unclear.

In March, after the Palestine, Texas Atlantis Conference, we are returning to the area to continue the search. On this trip we have agreed to spend a few days with another film crew with The History Channel working for a different series. Other trips are planned for April, May, and June. There are over 100 other spots (identified in the 2008 aerial search) that we did not investigate on this trip. In addition, we will begin by taking a more careful and extended look at the spot which might be building ruins. At the Palestine Atlantis Conference we will show underwater video of the planes and other formations we found during this trip.

Texas Spring Retreat: The Wisdom of Atlantis with Drs. Lora and Greg Little in Palestine, TX - March 19-22, 2009. Call Marlene Duet 985-893-9025 for info.

The Palestine, Texas ARE retreat is one of the longest and largest of all ARE regional conferences. This will be the Little's first presentation on Edgar Cayce's Atlantis at an ARE regional conference. Over the 4 days of the conference an overview of both Plato and Edgar Cayce's Atlantis will be presented. The most up-to-date results on the search for the three Hall of Records will be released. Results from the ongoing Search for Atlantis Project will be presented. In addition, the evidence of migrational patterns of Atlanteans--as described by Cayce--will be shown including presentations on South America, Mound Builders, and Egypt. This will be the most comprehensive overview of Cayce's Atlantis ever made. The conference will include film, photos, and interactive presentations.

I think the report I wrote that has been posted here answers most questions. We were not detained at AUTEC, we were essentially screamed at and threatened. As immediately ordered to do, we "got the hell out" and fast. It was dark, but in their inner harbor we saw a lot of "stuff." Oh, oh...now they gotta kill me!

The definitive evidence at Bimini... We essentially randomly and unintentionally anchored on a spot where we had not been before. When we dove, immediately we found we were right on top of multiple tiers and an area where every skeptical assertion could easily be shown to be false. Blocks on blocks, obviously cut rectangular blocks were found stacked under the big stones everywhere, wedge stones were pulled out, toolmarks were seen on many...we even flipped over some big blocks showing how other slabs had been stacked up to level them...and found a cube stone lithified under a big block. The film, which was done in a special HD, was the best I've ever seen, it's like the water isn't there.

When the sea levels were lower--110-feet lower in 10,000 BC, the Bimini Road area was about 85-feet above the sea level. Because of features "under" the big blocks, it may be that this area served as a building foundation, or the leveled area where some sort of structure stood. That is complete speculation of course. What isn't speculation is that what is there now was constructed and or altered by human hands sometime in the remote past.

Two more things. Off Andros at 60+ feet there is a step-like feature cut into an underwater wall near the Tongue of the Ocean. Off one of the Berry Islands there is an elevated pile of huge blocks. We have to investigate these thoroughly before we put out more info on them.

To answer a question: The Palestine Texas conference was quite interesting and good. Great, great people there. A Canadian film crew came in and completed a documentary while there and they got bits of interviews from lots of people who attended. For the first time ever, there was a photo of Andrew Collins' Egypt (under Giza) discovery shown, done with his permission. This was a portion of the talk on the 3 Hall of Records. The audience literally gasped when it was shown. The buzz it created did not stop... A year ago, when he was working on the book, Andrew sent me over 300 photos taken underground at Giza. What he did is astounding and the complete story is just so amazing there are times that all I can do is shake my head in amazement. Andrew did something that no one has ever done and he has more guts and stealthy ability than anyone I have ever known. Giza was built to mimic the Cygnus constellation and the proof of this will be obvious in his book, "Beneath The Pyramids," which hopefully will be out in June...maybe May. Those of you who know that Zahi Hawass is going to "drill" near the Sphinx--with a drill bought and supplied by the ARE--may not know that this event is directly due to an informational meeting between Zahi and the ARE's John Van Auken brought about by Andrew's discovery. Andrew's discovery caught everyone by surprise and no one had been aware of the existence of what he entered and found. Virtually everything I can say right now about this book and Andrew's discovery is in this paragraph, so there is nothing else I can answer.

Hi Greg, thanks for the answers!  I do have two more questions for you, though:

Are you saying you now believe the Bimini Wall to date to 10,000 bc then?  Cause last I heard, you had it dated to about 5,000 bc.  Has something changed, or is this just speculation?

I don't understand how he was able to get pictures underground at Giza. Can you go into anymore detail about that?

Also, are there any proceedings, or descriptions of the findings at the Palestine Texas conference anywhere online?  That conference was news to us.

Thanks for all the answers!  The new work looks really exciting.

Des:

The use of the "Bimini Road" as a harbor probably took place around 3000 BC. I had never really speculated about that precise area's use when it was above water, circa 10,000 BC. The question is, what was there in earlier times before it was used as a harbor. In truth, I can pose that question but I'm not quite certain what it will take to accurately answer it.

The answer to the other question is that there are places under the Giza plateau where one can enter. In a similar way, a person can go "under my house" and photograph there because my house has a large crawl space. NORAD has an enormous complex at Cheyenne Mountain, so it's possible to photograph inside the mountain.

Hi Greg, where is there an entrance in Giza where you can go beneath the pyramids?  And, if there is, why didn't anyone do it earlier?  It is one of the most toured sites in all the world.

There are a number of access points into the Giza subterrain.  One of the most famous is the so-called "Tomb of Osiris" near the Khafre causeway, and the Schor/FSU radar survey of '96 proved that there was a tunnel connecting it and the chambers under the Sphinx.

There are also many other deep wellshafts like it all over the Giza Plateau and most (those not covered by modern structures) can be seen on high rez 4m satellite photos from Quickbird or Ikonos. Somew of these connect into atunnel system discovered by a Polish team's radar survey in '06. 

Another, little-known access point is the Tomb of Merasankh near the satellite Queen's pyramids.  '96 GPR scans showed that it connects to a tunnel system that goes beneath the Great Pyramid.

Obviously, Andrew got into one of these by bribing one of the guards or sneaking past them!

Horus's statements are all true--except for 2 points. There are, indeed, all of those shafts, tombs, and so on there. What Collins discovered isn't, however, any of those, nor is it in any tour sites or in areas where tourists go, nor has it been known by any modern Egyptologists. Nor did he have to bribe anyone, although that's certainly the typical thing there, except it isn't exactly considered a bribe when it occurs, it's more like a "fee". I've really said all I can and the book will out soon anyway. In the book it's made quite clear why no one has discovered it. In addition, I'm certain that a documentary will come out on it. There is already some things going on in that area. In truth, it's surprising that the "lid" has been kept on it so well, but ARE wants it to all emerge with the book. MY real point in this is that the ARE has been doing a lot of research work.

1. There are literally hours of stunning underwater rov-gathered color video of areas off Bimini ranging from 50-feet to 350 feet. A huge area was surveyed in that video project.
2. The entire area off west Bimini has had side-scan sonar performed.
3. The Great Bahama Bank is being explored.
4. Anomalies off the Berry Islands and Andros found.
5. The ARE sponsored 2 visits to Giza by Collins.
6. The ARE is working with Egyptian authorities near the Sphinx.

That's a lot of things.
