Lot's of rigorous research and loads of ship petroglyphs there, with Sumerian connections.”

Hello Seasmith

It isn’t the immediate subject of my post. I was looking for information that could help to bolster a theory concerning the boat pits to the east of the Great Pyramid.

But, after reading this line on Wikipedia concerning David Rohl:

‘His argument is not helped by the fact that it depends upon speculations regarding the transmission of place-names for both the various rivers and nearby related areas from antiquity to the present.’

I’m particularly interested to read his book. My approach is based entirely on the Sumerian language which I translate with an unorthodox method. My first book was the re-translation of The Instructions of Shuruppak which demonstrated that Sumerian is indeed the founding language, that it can still be discerned in words we use today, and that the earliest symbols are of great antiquity. That was published as The Story of Sukurru in 2017. My upcoming offering, BEFORE BABEL The Crystal Tongue, should be published very soon. It will serve to validate the translation and show the importance of the earliest symbols. But, at the start, it was difficult to know how to frame it. A translation begins at the beginning, but explaining an entire forgotten language is a different matter. The subject is vast and incredibly important to us all. I decided to begin by analysing place names: Babel, Harran, Gobekli, and from there to branch out into other names of which Greek Prometheus, Talon, Zeus, tying them in with lines from The Story of Sukurru. The major discovery was the origin of the name of Hermes Trismegistus. There is nothing fanciful about this book. It’s based on the academic findings since the first tablets appeared in the 19th century. I will read David Rohl’s book with great interest. Perhaps he will be interested to read mine! Thank you very much for this lead.

Madeleine
