Maya, Codex Tro-Cortesianus, Chichen Itza

In 1697 an Italian traveller named Giovanni  Carieri  visited Mexico. He found a country  exploited by greedy Spanish merchants and fanatical and ignorant priests who were busily  destroying  signs of the old civilization. We found a great number of books say one chronicler but they contained  nothing but superstitions and falsehood  of Devil so we burned them.

 

In Mexico City Carieri  met a priest who was an exception. Don Carlos de Siguranta scientist and historian who could speak the language of Indians and read their hieroglyphs.

 

From ancients  manuscripts Siguranta has concluded  that  the Aztecs  had founded the city of Tenochtitlan   and  the Aztec empire in 1325. Before them there was a race called the Toltec and before them the Olmos who lived in the tropical lowlands and according  to the legend had come over the sea from the east -Siguranta believed from Atlantis.

 

From Siguranta Carieri learned that the Indian Civilization also had great pyramids  including one at Cholula  that was three times as massive as the Great Pyramid of Giza which Careri  had visited on his way to South America.

 

Careri  vent to the town of San Juan Teotihuacan and was impressed with the pyramid  of the Moon  and the pyramid  of the Sun even though both  were partially  buried in earth.

 

In 1719 Careri published  the story round the world voyage in nine volumes he was greed with hostility.

Mayan religious book is known as Troano Codex later a second part was found became Codex Tro-Cortesianus owned by descendents of Cortes. In this book Brasseur  found mentions of a great catastrophe that had convulsed Central America in remote past 8 dentists by Brasseur as 9937 BC. And destroyed much of its civilization .

 

Brasseur  learned that Quetzalcoatl, the white God who came from the sea was the inhabitant of the old Atlantis.

 

In the college of San Gregory in Mexico City Brasseur discoverers  a manuscript in Nahuatl  which is called the Chimalpopoca  Codex in which he learned that the  immense up healed had occurred  around 10500 BC. But it was not one catastrophe  but a series of at least four, each of which was caused by a temporary  shifting of the earth axes .

 

Between 1864 and 1867 Napoleon  sent a military expedition led by the Archduke  Maximilian of Hasburg  brother of the Emperor Franz Joseph. He left a legacy when he purchased from a Colector named Jose Maria Andrade a library of 5000 books on Mayan culture which he sent to Europe.

 

Augustus  Le Plongeon  was a gold prospector in California , a lawyer in San Francisco  and the director of a hospital in Peru. Le Plongeon  learned the Mayan Language and began to explore the forests of Yukatan alone. He found the Indians to be friendly and plolite and he was soon known as Great Black Beard.

 

From the Indians of Yuka tan he again heard tales of a great catastrophe.

 

He learned that they still preserved an occult  tradition, they practice magic and divination, that their wise men were able to surround  themselves  with clouds, and even appear and male themselves invisible, material is ing strange and amazing objects.

 

Le Plongeon concluded that there flowed a rich living current of occult  wisdom and practice with its sources in an extremely quiet past.

 

Le Plongeon  learned to decipher Mayan hieroglyphs from a 150 year old Indian.

 

In Popular Science Monthly  1879 Edward Herbert Thompson wrote an article about light skin blue eyes people with serpent emblems on their heads who had come from the east remote  antiquity.

 

As a student Thompson read a book by Diego De Landa the Spanish bishop who began his career by destroying  thousands of Mayan books and are facts and ended by carefully  collecting and preserving the remains of Mayan Culture.

 

He followed the text of Diego De Landa and bought the Chichen Itza  land and started  exploring the sacrifice well where it was said Mayan sacrifices  women and çhildren.

 

At the bottom of the well he found hundreds of ritual  objects of gold cooper and jade.

 

Only treasure of Tutankamon  surpassed the Thompson  findings.

 

When he died in 1935 at the age of 75 he had squandered  most of his fortune on his Maya  excavations.
