Treasure in TÜRKİYE

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

arriving TurkeyTreasure in Turkey. Just the mention of Turkey has brought a glimmer to many a treasure hunter’s eye. This is the cradle of much of civilization. Abraham brought his father there to Haran. The Assyrians, Sumerians, Hittites, Seleucids, Greeks, Romans and Ottoman Empire have all possessed it at one time or another. It is the bridge between Europe, Asia and the Near East. The ancients have buried there people with their fortunes for thousands of years.

Yet don’t go there and hunt without all of the permits in place. In one small region that I visited, twenty American treasure hunters were serving ten years each for hunting without a permit within the first six months of 2010 alone. And several more were arrested and awaiting trial…. Don’t even think about it. A report about our team coming to a central region, how we were traveling and with whom preceded us within a short time of leaving Istanbul.

But we were part of a legal and invited archaeological expedition. We carried no shovels or excavation equipment. We were performing non-invasive surveys only. And the adventure will not soon be forgotten.

After the long plane ride, a ferry trip at night across the Marmar.

Our mission was to see if we could locate and image ancient tombs. Our first stop was to see a tomb that had been opened about 100 years ago. Here is the tomb and one of the identifying inscriptions.

And then it was on to great adventure.

We began to search for our unknown target, (a royal tomb, thousands of years old), using a specialized, proprietary, long distance frequency generator and confirmed our long distance location with our imaging equipment. We not only discovered the tombs, but began to see an overall picture. We are now able to identify the year it was built and from there began to identify who was buried there. Imaging also allowed us to discover depth and approximate amount of gold buried in each tomb.

Scans of the two tombs. These tombs were located by long distance location equipment (within 5 feet from a distance of nearly a mile away) and then imaged. The depth showed to be 10.14 feet to the covers (3 meters+). This was openly shared with those that were with us. What we did not share was there was a large amount of gold in the tombs that was at 24-26 feet.

After our departure, a group including the secret police began to dig the targets without permits. We did secure the photos and have placed one photo of a lid available to all.

Unfortunately, this was a tomb raid. All involved were arrested and are now serving ten years each for their part in it. I have been informed that several tons of gold were removed by officials from the Turkish government.

Other tombs were located some of them valuable in contents, some not. But important data was collected that allowed us to understand location and identification of tombs in Turkey. Photos below show a part of the identification system.

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure Maps 14

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure maps of the KGC and signs should be read within their own right and not from a standard Treasure Hunters Manual of signs. The emails and phone calls are generally of the nature “I have a stone carved into the shape of an . . . . . . , what does it mean”. With KGC it depends on the area and the persons that did the deposit. I would love to be able to help, but I can not without seeing the context of the signs. I would like to get you thinking more like the KGC and make it easier for you to find.

Begin by looking at the individual sign. If it is an animal, consider the attributes of the animal. Say it were a cheetah. The cheetah is best known for its ability to run. Is it indicating such within the context? Consider the turtle of the Spanish and the KGC. Does it the have legs? Then it is walking. If it has no legs, it is going to be right there, it is going no where. If it has one leg, watch carefully it may be a pointer. One of the more significant features is the eye. There are three positions to consider for the eye. First, is one eye not carved where it should be? Then the other eye is looking at something and gives a directional for another sign, an entryway, a deposit, etc. If an eye is carved but closed, then consider this: the eye is present but it is ‘lights out’ time. Watch for a death trap. Or it may be that it just indicates there is nothing there. If both eyes are open, carefully study for differences, particularly letters or numbers near the eye and watch the lines around the eye carefully for a pattern or a map. The lines may indicate a topo map drawn for the cache or next sign. Compare these lines carefully to the surrounding topography. There are many other signs from the eyes, so sit down and consider what it may be telling you. So you have three things to consider about each eye: is it missing, is it closed or is it open. Then you must apply how it is being used and the context of that information. Then compare the information from the two eyes and proceed from there.

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure maps, Spanish and KGC signs and symbols art complex and many per site. Take many pictures, do not disturb anything that MAY be a sign, DO NOT REMOVE any of the signs or symbols. If you need help  email for further help 480 463 7464.
