Ancient Signposts

Messages From Our Ancient Past

Please join us in welcoming author and researcher Arthur Faram as September Author of the Month. Arthurs book “Ancient Signposts” reveals world secrets that have been kept and passed down for millennia. In it you will explore previously unknown secrets of the Egyptian, Chinese and Mayan pyramids. You will visit a Viking geoglyph which outlines territory given to the Vikings after leaving Europe circa 1000AD. You will learn which famous artist included coded messages about the ancient past in his paintings, and much more.


Arthur Faram was born in Fort Worth, Texas and moved with his parents, at the age of 13, to California. He later graduated from high school in Anaheim California. After graduation he joined the Marine Corps, serving 9 years and receiving the Purple Heart in Viet Nam. When discharged from the military he was employed as a Computer Analyst and Certified Cartographer. Upon retirement Arthur finished College and attended Law School to prepare himself for starting his own business.

Now that Arthur is retired he has the time to research the stories that his grandfather told him about the Faram family in England, before their immigration to the U.S.. He not only found out that the stories were true but was led into a history that is more amazing than anything he could have imagined. It was while compiling and verifying his family history that he was led to the mysteries of the Newport Tower and Kensington Runestone.

The Author

All my life I have marveled at the stories my Grandfather told me, as a child, about the Faram family in England. These were stories that occurred prior to their immigration to the U.S. from England in the early 20th century.

As is the case with most of us, I have been too busy making a living and learning the ways of the world to do much ancestral research. Once I retired, for the second time, in 2008, I finally had the time to do the research on our family tree.

During the research I learned that, as is the case today, heads of state, and the persons close to them, possessed certain ancient information that allowed them to know things and prosper in ways that the common man did not. It was while compiling and verifying my family history that I was led from Galicia and Portugal, to Denmark, Scotland, Britain and eventually the United States.

If you are a fan of the Celtics (The civilization, not the basketball team.) you know that each of these countries played major roles in the history of the Celtic empire. Rather than writing another book about the Faram clan, I direct your attention to some of the buzz words related to our family history; Farum Brigantium, Templers, Vikings, Henry Sinclair, Jamestown, Lord Baltimore, and the Newport Tower, RI USA. You can preview, and order the book, “Ancient Signposts” at

The Book

The research into my family history eventually led me to an ancient mystery that involved the Newport Tower in Newport, RI USA. There were two controversies brewing about the Tower at the time. They were the questions of who built the tower, and why it was built.

The Newport Tower, and the presumed date of construction, correlated with the information which I had gathered while researching my family history. Using the information I had gathered, and with Geometry being my favorite math, I applied these principles to solving the mystery of the Newport Tower. In solving the Newport Tower mystery I was also led to the mystery of the Kensington Runstone in Kensington, Minnesota. In the process I learned that the Tower and the Stone were mutually supporting. The solutions to these two mysteries can be found in the book.

It was while solving these two puzzles that I learned that there was more to the geometric principles, used in these solutions, than simply solving the Tower and the Stone mysteries. By applying the same geometrical principals to other monuments, such as Stonehenge in the UK, the Yonaguni Pyramid in Japan, the Pyramids of China, and many other monoliths, it was learned that our ancestors had left a worldwide network of geoglyphs that revealed an amazing story of worldwide knowledge, and exploration of the world, as far back as 10,000 BC and longer. 

It was then that I begin the arduous task of applying these principles, first to known and dated monoliths such as Stonehenge, and then, as they were discovered, to geoglyphs around the world. The name given to this emerging science was Geoglyphology.

It is the product of Geoglyphology, which unlocked the true history of the ancient peoples of the world in a way that has never been done before, that is presented in “Ancient Signposts”.


It is necessary that the reader understand the evolving science of Geoglyphology and how that field, and the associated symbols, relate to the book. You will realize, as you read through the book, that information gained through Geoglyphology has the ability to rewrite history, as we know it. 

During our research it was discovered that down through time civilizations have secretly passed down a legacy of geoglyphs on the shores and highlands of land masses around the world. A well known example, which is presented in the book, is the geoglyphs of Nazca in Peru. The reason the Nazca Lines and other geoglyphs were not discovered until recently is that they are too large to be seen from the ground. And so it is with most geoglyphs.

The primary validations of the arguments contained in the book are verified by researched, documented and dated monuments around the world that have existed for millennia. Scholars have discussed and speculated about many of these monuments for centuries, their true purpose never having been discovered. Also included are heretofore undiscovered geoglyphs that are now documented in the book. These geoglyphs serve as historical signposts which document and date ancient peoples, their territories and their movements around the globe. Geoglyphs exist on every continent and many islands around the world and range in age from the 10,000 year old Yonaguni Pyramid in Japan, to the 250 year old streets of Washington, DC USA.

Data recovered from these studies includes obtaining the geographical range of the culture being studied, the level of sophistication that existed in relation to their understanding of mathematics and geometry, their knowledge of world geography, the discovery of other archeological sites that were unknown prior to the studies, and the dating of the culture itself by the data collected offsite locations identified at the dig site.

Glyphs and Geoglyphs

Glyph – A glyph can be any design that is used to convey a message.
Geoglyph – A geoglyph is a glyph that occurs on the ground.
Bearing – A bearing refers to the direction that any line formed by a geoglyph points in relation to "True North". True North is used because as soon as you begin tracing a magnetic line away from the source, magnetic deviation becomes a factor. Magnetic Deviation exists all over the world and renders magnetic headings useless over long distances because of the error it causes in a magnetic bearing. True headings can be derived from celestial observation, GPS, and computer software which are tied to satellite photos. These methods produce True Headings which are not distorted by Magnetic Deviation.
Radials – Radials are bearings after they leave the source. Radials remain a straight line because no magnetic distortion has taken place while moving away from the source. Once a direction away from the source is plotted it must be traversed on a true course, not a magnetic course, in order to avoid magnetic deviation.

Geoglyphs, for the most part, are so large that they can only be recognized from the air. The civilizations that constructed these signposts either had the capability of flight, or had an advanced knowledge of mathematics and astronomy well beyond anything we could have imagined for the time. I have visited some sites on the ground and even knowing they are there I find them difficult to locate.

The glyphs take on several forms. Some take the form of a triangle, another might be one or more circles, and another may be one or more lines touching or crossing each other. No mater what shape a glyph takes, any line can be a pointer to a place important to the creator of that glyph.

Ancient archeological locations, many previously unknown, are identified in “Ancient Signposts”. In the book you will learn that the exploration of Caral Peru was coming to a close, due to lack of artifacts, until Geoglyphology revealed it as the capitol of a territory spanning the entire continent of South America.

The accuracy of the calculations of the ancient peoples is incredible. The GPS accuracy of the software program is seldom more accurate than the orientations of the ancient geoglyphs. By calculating the bearing at the source one can follow the extended radial, by satellite and computer, for sometimes thousands of miles and locate an abandoned, and sometimes unknown urban area, with little or no error.

The evidence revealed in "Ancient Signposts" covers the evolution of civilizations from before Egyptian times to the colonization of the Americas. While performing the research for the book it was discovered that down through time ancient groups left a legacy of geoglyphs on the shores and highlands of land masses around the world. Well known examples are the geoglyphs at Nazca Peru. The reason the Nazca Lines and other geoglyphs were not discovered until recently is that they are too large to be seen from the ground. And so it is with most geoglyphs. Geoglyphs exist on every continent and many islands around the world. Extensive research on geoglyphs shows that they are all related in the protocols used in their formation.

The geoglyphs in the book range in age from the 10,000 year old Ruins at Caral, Peru, to the 250 year old streets of Washington, DC. The book “Ancient Signposts” will be of particular interest to individuals that are interested in knowing the true story about the evolution of a privileged and dedicated group of people that have shaped the history of our world.

The adventure you will experience in “Ancient Signposts” will amaze you, entertain you, surprise you, and, if you have an open mind, will convey information which has heretofore been restricted to speculation. It is no easy task to change the centuries of misinformation, thrown at the citizens of the world, disguised as history. There are many reasons for this deception, but history is forever and should be recorded faithfully. You will see in the signposts, left by the ancients, exists a true recording of the evolution of civilizations over many millennia.

Ancient Signposts

Ancient Signposts


During the time that the information for this book was being collected the research of ancient history has progressed exponentially. On a weekly basis there is a newspaper or periodical article about another ancient structure or civilization being discovered somewhere in the world. Just a few decades ago there was no idea that civilized man had existed for so long.

As you read the book you will see history unfolding before your eyes. Many times it will not go in the direction in which we have been taught. In response to that we should ask ourselves; how much proof was provided to confirm the information which has been given to us previously? Most likely we took the information at face value because it was the only information available. In the book “Ancient Signposts” the reader will be provided with as much cooperating proof of the information presented, using satellite photos and documented history, as practically possible. Much information will be validated by physical evidence, while some will be proven with hard facts. Other information can be verified by the flow of historical facts surrounding it. In this manner it is hoped that the reader will come to trust the information presented.

Evidence is presented revealing the origin of the Egyptian, Mayan, and Chinese Pyramids, in addition to showing how they are related. The meaning of mysterious Nazca Lines in Peru is revealed. You will learn that many tribes recorded as American Indians were in fact assimilated from continents other than Asia. The reader will learn that a land claim on North America occurred at least 10,000 years ago. Evidence is presented that ties a famous American structure with a 7500 year old Egyptian geoglyph. The reader may be shocked to learn that South America was mapped and colonized over 10,000 years ago.

The book presents undeniable evidence that North and South America were inhabited by Europeans prior to the voyage of Columbus. The book also outlines how the existence of the United States was almost thwarted by the invasion of Mexico City by Hernando Cortez in 1519. “Ancient Signposts” presents geoglyphs that show the geography of the world has been known for millennia.

If you have an open mind, are a fan of ancient history, and want information that is backed by proof rather than theories, you will find that “Ancient Signposts” will change your paradigm on the evolution of man.
