S.R. Rao, the father of marine archaeology in India, has long maintained that, in agreement with the bronze age artifacts dredged up from the sea bottom, and the megalithic hewned stone blocks of the now submerged city, ancient Dwaraka, was consumed by the sea circa 1500 B.C., now submerged a half mile from shore, off modern Dwaraka, which was built when the old city of Dwaraka, built near the mouth of the ice age Gomati River, was inundated by the ocean, as described in the vedic literature, in that timeframe, according to the tribal lineages recorded in that literature. Rao has received much flack because such a “late” sea level rise necessitates that the Ice Age ended circa 1500 B.C., which is heresy to mainstream academics, who insist that the Ice Age ended circa 10000 B.C., as does new age author Graham Hancock, who posits that the brick and megalithic stone block building (temples, houses, and fortresses) was ongoing circa 10000 B.C., despite the fact that there is no evidence of such before circa 2500 B.C.
And there are extensive ruins of brick buildings submerged fifty miles from shore in the Gulf of Cambay (also off northwest India), documented by the National Institute of Oceanography of India, which Rao says are also of the Harappan civilization of circa 2000 B.C., which were obviously submerged when the sea level rose with the end of the Ice Age, according to the evidence, which rational Rao honors, but which Hancock and the mainstream academics are constrained to ignore because they are locked into the dogma that the Ice Age ended circa 10000 B.C., and so, are forced to say that the submerged ruins (which look like those having remained onshore) were built about 8,000 years before the still-onshore cities were built, which obviously puts a real kink in their timeline.
So S.R. Rao can take heart that there are many very good reasons to believe that the Ice Age ended actually circa 1500 B.C., in addition to his underwater discoveries confirming bronze age civilizations now submerged off the coasts of India, as there are submerged bronze age ruins in many other parts of the world, built by the ancient mariners of the Ice Age, who sailed all over the globe, accurately charting the landmasses as they proceeded, with the ancient mapping method described in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, which is the origin of the numerology for the hindu yugas of time, of which I hope Dr. Rao takes note, realizing that it too is the origin of the numerations for our modern nautical mile mapping system, so tell your professors, and show them http://genesisveracityfoundation.com.
