Ancient Olmec/Mayan Inscriptions Comalcalco Tabasco Temples Fired Brick Writing Cuneiform Mystery of Olmecs David Hatcher Childress Bronze Age World Navigation Diffusionism Barry Fell

In David Hatcher Childress’s great new book, The Mystery of the Olmecs, around page 130, he cites the ancient ruins of Comalcalco, on the coast of the Bay of Campeche, north of the foothills of the Chiapas mountains of southern Mexico; ruins of clay-fired brick, a huge acropolis of brick ruins, with smaller temple complexes in the vicinity, also of brick, because stone for building blocks was not available there, the only major city of brick.

The ruins have partially been excavated, and thousands of the bricks “strangely” have inscriptions of ancient languages on them, Egyptian, Libyan, Ogam, Phoenician, Chinese, Burmese, Paliburmese, Arabic, and Tifinag.  So how can this be?  Knowledge of ancient languages from all over the world recorded in bricks in southern Mexico, placed over 3,000 years ago?  This is not what the experts expected, and they certainly are not making front page news of this because it does not fit their paradigm, but there it is, global navigation certainly during the Bronze Age, with the astronomically-derived geometry for the navigation explained in article #2 at

Famous diffusionist theorist Barry Fell of Harvard hypothesized that Comalcalco had a school of languages in the city, with young scribes having practiced their cuneiform skills in the clay bricks of their city’s constructions, recording the known languages of the navigators who called on the ports of the Olmecs, people from all around the world, coming to trade for jade, obsidian, exotic feathers, rare herbs and spices; global maritime trade, enabled by the surprisingly simple yet accurate mapping system described in article #2.

And checkout, great stuff.
