The new Sun Sanctuary discovered in Romania

A new site was discovered in Dobrogea, the Romanian area that lies between the Danube and the Black Sea. Given the finding, it looks like the Neolithic populations had a much more intricat spiritual system than we originally anticipated. Mysterious sites, full of sacred symbols, become more and more enigmatic.
Just one mile away from Stonehenge, maybe one of the most sacred places in Europe, another sanctuary, also a megalithic circular monument, was discovered after last June when archaeologists had discovered in Damerham , another 16 miles from the famous circle of stones, a gigantic prehistoric ceremony complex, consisting in 12 circles and estimated to be 1000 years older than Stonehenge.

Since ancient times, some people, endowed with special powers or using magic rituals, created and bordered sacred spaces, usually looking like a circle.The circle is dynamic, it expresses perfection: it is a symbol of balance, eternal return, cycles that occur in nature as seasons, days, moon phases etc. It also appears at cellular level. There are a few images that appear more frequently, here are some of them.
The Snake, main symbol of regeneration, revival, vital force, abundance and fertility, was also regarded with fear, for its venomous aspect. It is an important component of the Neolithic Pantheon, represented as the Great Goddess, under her image of Snake Goddess. The main symbol associated with the Snake is the spiral. One of the most revered Romanian historians, Vasile Pârvan , claims that the real origin of this symbol is in Dacia, the legendary country inhabited by enlightened people, that was to be found on a territory which is similar to today’s Romania. J. Deshayes mentioned that the spiral appeared in the 4th millenium BC on the Lower Danube and then migrated to the Peloponnese, Crete Egypt and Mesopotamia. Recent information push back the appearance of the snake spiral to Superior Paleolithic. , Engraved bones witness the existence of this spiral.

Less than 3 miles from the place of origin of the most famous samples of old art on Romanian territory (the Hamangia culture), last March a huge sanctuary containing the highest concentration of solar disks was discovered. The Seimeni sanctuary consists in  59 solar disks, with 20 meters diameter, some almost touching each other.  Some are separated by lanes that might be walls as thick as 4 meters. The central position is taken by a spiral that coils towards the center of the disk, forming a ramp with a base that is over 8 meters wide and that, getting more and more narrow,  captures the entire spirit energy feeding the matter and sends it like a jet propulsion towards divinity. It is obvious the disks have a different rigidity compared to the adjacent ground, and this becomes visible in the land slide areas and on the slopes. Actually, the entire Seimeni village is sliding towards the Danube. The last landslide, in 2005, destroyed the connecting road  between villages.

Along with the Snake symbol, the Seimeni sanctuary presents representative motifs belonging the Sun worship – the disk, The Great Goddes worship – the spiral – and the Water worship. Until this discovery, there was no clear archaeological evidence of a solar cult in the Carpathian-Danube area. Such a grand sanctuary involves the presence of a powerful cult and structured clergy. The sanctuary is placed on top of a hill, visible to anyone, and in case there were activities on this surface of over 20,000 sqm they would involve over 1,000 persons. The exact diameter of the disks points to advanced technology, given that, if built in limestone and 1 meter thick, a single disk would weigh 50 thousand tons.

But this is not a singular discovery. 16 miles away, next to the Mireasa village, another sanctuary with four disks, 26 meters each, and a similar placement, was discovered one year before Seimeni. Three others showed up at the same time –  40 miles from Seimeni, close to the Black Sea shore. The 13 new disks of the sanctuaries contain two larger ones, with diameters of 28 mteres ,which are the largest ever discovered in the Carpathian – Danube area. Along a straight line of about 45 miles, there are five such sanctuaries showcasing the solar symbol. The old ceremonies are still done every few years.
No historical source is clear about the solar or earthly nature of the Dacian religion. The key god, Zalmoxis, was worshiped from roofless temples or mountain tops. A gruesome ritual involved throwing people up so that they would then fall upon a carpet of swords and die from such multiple stabbing, with the purpose of sending them as messengers to the supreme god.
The andesite solar disk in Sarmizegetusa, the main spiritual center of Dacians, suggests the sun. The Dacian priests are described in ancient sourses as keen in astronomy and nature sciences. It seems that some of the sanctuaries also have a calendar function.
2012, ceremony on the Andesite Circle in SarmizegetusaThe Dacians seem to be the descendents of Thracians, who adored Ares, Dionysos, Artemis and Hermes (especially the blood line of the Thracian kings adored Hermes). The Thracian Hermes looks like a solar divine being, which then turns into a knight hero, very represented in the Balkans and further assimilated to Apollo.
The Thracian Dionysos ceremonies were held in the mountains, with lots of percussion and dancing in a circle. In these exhausting trance, women wore long dresses, covered with deer skins and holding serpents in honor of Sabazios (the Thracian name for Dionysos) or daggers. This circle dance is one of the sacred method to create a magic space, around a mystical center, an “axis mundi”, a Navel of the Earth. Large quartz statues were discovering in such a dancing circle around the center of a Mesolithic 7th millenium BC were discovered in  Lepenski Vir. The esotheric circle dance creates a ritual brotherhood and has resulted in the current folk dances, that still keep the circle shape. Evidence dating back to 3700-2500BC show such a dance of six women belonging to this culture. This situates the Romanian magic spiral cult before India, Tibet and Cina.

Nowadays, on the peak of this remote hill on the Danube bank, thousand of women dance, in circles of 30-40 persons, on these impressive disks. There ar tens of such circles of people, rotating with frenetic joy and then winding into spirals that come towards the center of the disks… and then back to circles.

The Giant unearthed in Romania

February  2012: a Romanian-Canadian geologists team is tracking the remnants of the gold  vein in one of the 5500 years old galleries in Rosia MOntana made an accidental discovery that could re-write the entire history of the human kind. At the end of the gallery they discovered the rectangular end of a slab that did not look like natural rock. After taking samples, the lab tests showed that it was a composite stone indeed, made of 15% granite dust, 30% wolfram and 55% gold powder, 50 carats, made with a technology that cannot be duplicated under the current scientific knowledge.
The fact is even more surprising considering that the gallery where the slab was found, also called the Hiperborean Gallery, on the Cornei Valley, under the Cornea Village in Rosia MOntana, had been surveyed before, 36 years ago to be precise, all along the year of  1976 and, due to the astonishing archaeological and antropological findings, unacceptable under the communist regime, was closed and subsequently sealed by order of the Romanian secret police. Some of the miners still whisper about the gallery and there are many ones that have dads or older brothers, formerly miners in Rosia MOntana, who took part in the diggings and reinforcement of the gallery.  Most of them are dead now, because of occupational diseases. The four witnesses still alive do not want to recall the events, but one of them,   Ion Mois, former head of team, thought a lot about it and decided to break the silence. Here is what happened then, according this eyewitness:
„Here it is: in the winter of ’ 76, the engineer in chief called me and I got the task of reopening, consolidating and install the electricity wiring in the old gallery 13, that stayed sealed since the Austro Hungarians.
After that, two comrade geologists were supposed to come and prospect the place. The gallery was old, unexplored since the time of Agathyrsi, who then extracted and processed gold and silver for the Dacians, and the vein had been wron out many centuries before Romans took hold of the gold mines, or  Alburnus Maior as they liked to call it. It is true, there are signs of prospecting from Romans, but it is clear that they quickly understood and abandoned it. The consolidation and electrifying took almost until the summer of  76 and we had some trouble pumping the water from a flooded part of the gallery. Both the valves in the mine and the electrovalves did not help. It is also then that we found a bone, washed by water, so big we had never seen before. Neither myself, nor my mates had seen such a thing, After showing it to the mine director, he gave it to the secret police representative in the Rosia MOntana mining company. The prosecutor questioned us for four days, asking where the bone was, when did we find it, what position was it in, who was with us in the mine and who knew about its existence, how many of us entered and exited the shift that day. Well, all sorts of puzzling questions to scare us and make us quiet.  Obviously, we all said no word and after signing the statements they sent us back to the gallery. I did not utter a word back home, I was scared for my loved ones.
When the job was done, two people from Bucharest eneteed the mine. One of them was a geologist for sure. What they worked in there I do not know, but about a week later a very young one came, a with a scar next to his left eye, saying he was an archaeologist. Two days after that an entire civilian team came, but also some archaeologists with some weird equipment, and a Police squad. They blocked access in Gallery 13 and started checking our employee badges at the gate. About another month and a half later, myself and my mates were called again  – the ones that had worked on consolidating the gallery and had signed the statements, to carry the sterile from the bottom of gallery 13 and take it out in the mine rail cars.
Then I saw the horror. The archaeologists had dug from the stone a huge skeleton, about 10 m long, which lay on a side, with the feet in foetal position. The bone I had found was tied with a red ribbon  and only then I saw it was a vertebra. Good God, what a vertebra! The civilians were buzzing around, some took notes of what the archaeologists were saying, others took photos with flash.  They mentioned a guy, Densusianu, and something about hyperboreans. Another one, the young archaeologist, said that it was a hyperborean skeleton and that it could be our very ancestor. “No way, comrade! What hyperborean are you dreaming of? ” yelled a fat one in leather coat, with a heavy Russian accent. “Man comes from the ape! Where did you see a 10 meters tall ape? Drop it, this skeleton leaves to Moscow!…. take this retrograde from here. Bistro, bistro!” Then we were all terrified. Two big guys jumped him, tied him and dragged him out of the mine. „Come on, wrap, pack and all the crates go to the station! If anyone says another word I will drop the KGB onto your backs ! ” We were the one to bear with the packing and carrying. 
Dawn broke when we finished packing, carrying the crates and putting them into the train. But we were not allowed to go home. We were pushed in two windowless vans and took us somewhere. Where? I do not know… Fact is we were beaten for a week and made sign a paper that we saw nothing and know nothing, that I have an uncle that is a bandit that shoots the secret police members in the mountains, and they told me if I said a word, they would arres my wife and children and put me in jail. I signed and I said nothing, what was I to do? I did not ever talk about this, not even with my mates that I met again at the mine.
But after this something good happened. A week after returning to the mine, the one that was tailing me came to me when I went out from my shift and sat down at the pub with me. When I saw him I froze.  „Look, Ion, he told me, I come from the same county. I was there when the giant’s skeleton was found. Now it is in Moscow. Myself, like you, witnessed that. Take this envelope and guard it with your life. The picture is inside. I am telling you : there, in the gallery, lay the skeleton of a hyperborean Dacian, our ancestor. I do not know if I will make it, because I was radiated. They scared you well, but us, the Secret Police guys, do not get scared so easily, so they get rid of us. I do not know you, you do not know me. I gave you nothing. You get it?” „Yes, I got it!”. He stood up and went quickly through the door. I only say him like a shadow behind me for another two days and them I never say him again. But I still have the Hyperborean picture from him”.
But let’s come back to the slab…
It was april 2012. After the talks behind closed doors at the Ministry of Mines, Petrol and Geology, the Canadian side argued that this finding should not be made public, and the gallery should be urgently closed. The Romanian side agreed with keeping the secret but insisted on continuing the research and sent another team. This time the archaeologists’ team was lead by an old one, with a scar next to his left eye. For three month, they secretly dug around the slab and as a result it was completely unearthed.  It did not take very long, because 36 years ago, the giant skeleton was dug from above the slab, and most of the unearthing had been performed then. Measurements showed that the perfectly smooth slab had a length of 12 meters, a width of 6 meters and it was weighing about 1700 tons, 100 tones more than the slab discovered in  Baalbek> the gold contained in it was about 900 tons, about 300 times more than we could obtain with a full recycling of the mountains of sterile rock deposited for millenia in Rosia montana after searching for gold, and 150 times more than all the gold that had been extracted in surface and underground minig by the Agathyrsi for the Dacians, and then Romans, and then Austro-Hungarians and Romanians.
The area was immediately surrounded with a barbed wire fence and put under military watch, and the preliminary digging for a well with a 12 meters diameter to reach the slab were commenced in May 2012. a
At the end of June, to be exact on the 23rd, the slab was taken up to the surface, cut in 80 equal pieces, loaded in conteiners and transported swiftly, during the night, under military escort, to an unknown destination. There is some information coming grom trustworthy sources that indicate the conteiners were delivered to the Steel Plant SIDEX Galati and they are already molten, turned into ingots of gold and wolfram but we do not know where is the secret storage place.
The fact that the slab vanished and there is no photo of it is understandable. A worker that participated in the cutting  claims that there is a set of photos taken by an old prestigious Romanian archaeologist, that they were delivered to a paleo linguist to study them and that this scholar warned the romanian authorities that the slab has an immense cultural and historical value to the Romanian people and for the entire human kind. The value would be much higher than its trade value. To support his claims, the archaeologist presented a few photos showing that the entire surface was covered in carved letters, emerald green , totally unknown according to the paleolinguist, but with high probability of being the Pelasg, set in three parallel rows, starting from top left and winding diagonally, in spiral, around the head o f a wolf, and then ending at the bottom right corner. It looks like the Romanian authorities were insensitive to all these warnings and evidences, and ordered the cutting and melting of the slab, after which 19.31 % of the income were to be wired to the State treasury, as negotiated with the Canadian side, according to the contract for mining gold and rare metals in the area.
„Thing became amazing when – said nthe reputed archaeologist whose name is confidential for protection purposes -lifting the slab a well with a diameter of 4 meters became visible. INside it there was a helix ladder, the steps were carved in the walls of the well, like cut with a laser. From inside the well came a milky, violet light. Although the workers, geologists and archaeologists needed sime time to recover from the astonishment, no one had the courage to go down and check the well, excelpt the paelo linguist. The next day was too late. Overnight, the Romanian Intelligence Service and the army had covered the well with boards and then cement was poured for sealing. We had waited for the paelo linguist to come back but he never came back to the surface. The next day the exterior well and the old gallery entrance were also sealed. The same day, myself and all witnesses that saw the extraction of the slab and the discovery of the well deep down the mine were forced to sign some document granting the keeping of the State Secret, and then we left to our homes, scared. ”
The head office of the Ministry of Mines, Petrol and Geology and Institute of Archaeology of Bucharest, as expected, have no information to share. Silence fell over the events. Some voices state that high Government employees muffled the entire business and that Swiss bankers are satisfied. Last time when we could discuss with the archaeologist and the witness worker was July 28, 2012, after which they were not found anymore, anywhere. Neighbors talk about some vans, masked agents and night arrests, but it is not sure.
