THE MYSTERIOUS DOLMENS OF ANTEQUERA
In the province of Malaga you can see megalithic constructions ancestors of the Spaniards.
Everyone has heard about these megalithic* structures of antiquity, like Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids. However, the claim that only very few our compatriots – immigrants living in southern Spain or coming here as tourists, heard about the dolmens of Antequera.
The first mention of one of them – Dalmine Menga (or Mangal) – date back to 1530, the ninth year and is located in málaga notes the Bishop Caesar Riario. In other ancient, but later manuscripts can also be found mention of this dolmen. But the first research about him, we meet only in 1842, the year – in the work of Cristobal Fernandez – and then, in 1847, the year – in the labour málaga architect Rafael mitjana beach and Edison entitled “Notes on the druid temple found in the area of Antequera”. From this time, you can say that Spain began the study of these mysterious megalithic structures.
In the 19th century, the dolmen of Menga visited and described many Spanish and foreign historians and archaeologists, such as Gongora, Siret, Gomez-Moreno, Mélida, Mortele, Obermayer, Leisner, etc. as well as famous travellers lady Louisa Tenison (1852 year) and prosper mérimée (1853-m).

The age of the great pyramid
Among Egyptologists there is no doubt that pyramids were built in Egypt, when he entered into the dynastic period. But for many authors of popular science books it is not the fact. In extreme cases, they agree that this statement is true for all similar constructions, except the pyramid of Cheops. According to some authors, it is a monument remaining to us in the inheritance from extraterrestrials who visited our planet thousands of years ago. Already mentioned by Zakaria Sitchin, one of many defenders of this theory, argues that the Great pyramid served as a beacon for arriving to earth of space ships (as well as “transit prison” for aliens). Others believe that it is a memorial, built by the Atlanteans who survived the destruction of their civilization. According to some researchers, the pyramid of Khufu is a monument remaining to us in the inheritance from some civilization that existed before the flood. So, John Anthony West cites as an example the nearby Sphinx and declares that it is “clearly” visible traces of water erosion. According to him, the fact that we are now “clearly” see, could arise only as a result of rains that have passed in this area since 2500 BC, Therefore, he also considers the date of construction the pyramid of Cheops to 400 g 10. BC mythical date that causes so many to accept the interpretation of Sasa. Unfortunately, it is often assumed that the prediction has more weight than the rationale underlying this or that theory, or at least reinforces it. It is therefore logical that serious scientists, Egyptologists and including against people who want to bring guesses and predictions in the scientific debate. Scientific discussions, as you know, requires not mere allegation and prophecy. Continue reading
