    Default Strong Fortresses

    Strong Fortresses:

    The strong walls would suggest a very specific and serious reason for its size.

    Default Almost Invisible

    Almost Invisible:

    Just like many ancient ruins these also get covered by the sands of time. Even from a helicopter some ruins are hard to see as the thick grass and bush overgrows the walls.

    Default On top of the Mountain

    On top of the Mountain:

    A great example of a ruin with high walls at the top of a mountain.

    Default Lost in the Forest

    Lost in the Forest:

    A recognisable horseshoe shape ruin with pillars at its entrance lies in among the forestry trees. The boundaries that make up the larger ruins which surrounds this feature are not visible in this picture. Large boulder monoliths are often found scattered in close proximity.

    Default Ancient Terraces

    Ancient Terraces:

    Agricultural and grazing terraces lie scattered across endless mountain sides in southern Africa. From studies of indicator species and erosion, we have established that some are more than 5000 years old while others are much older. Just in the area of Waterval Boven I have personally calculated that these terraces run for more than 50 kilometres. This would suggest that there was a very large population living here in antiquity who needed to be fed. Long before agriculture took root in the rest of the world. Who were they?

    Default The Passage

    The Passage:

    The roads and passage ways that link many of the ruins would suggest that the occupants may have needed protection while moving from one to the other. We can only imagine the kind of wildlife that existed here some 75,000 years ago.

    Default The Chromosone

    The Chromosone:

    This is one of the most puzzling ruins we have found to date. Its structural precision and complexity boggles the mind and its purpose remains a mystery. We do however speculate that it was a ceremonial and possibly a sacrificial site.

    Default Infinity

    Infinity:

    We find interesting symbolisms worked into many ruins. The figure 8 or infinity yin yang comes to mind in this example.

    Default Passage of time and erosion

    Passage of time and erosion:

    The walls of this ruin are way over a meter wide. The scale of destruction and deterioration are an indication of its possible age.
