In 3200 BC, Orkney Island off the coast of Northern Scotland was home to a small farming village called Skara Brae. For reasons unknown, after nearly six centuries of continuous habitation, the village was abandoned around 2600 BC and its stone structures covered over--perhaps deliberately, like the structures at Gobekli Tepe. Although now well-excavated, very little is known about the peaceful people who lived at Skara Brae or their origins. Who were they and where did they go?

He shows how the earliest Skara Brae houses match the typical Dogon stone house as well as Schwaller de Lubicz's intrepretation of the Egyptian Temple of Man at Luxor.
He explains how megalithic stone sites near Skara Brae conform to Dogon cosmology, each representing sequential stages of creation as described by Dogon priests, and he details how the houses at Skara Brae also represent a concept of creation. Citing a linguistic phenomenon known as 'ultraconserved words,' the author compares words of the Faroese language at Skara Brae, a language with no known origin, with important cosmological words from Dogon an Please click here to ask a question
