    In the year 1959, in Chalkidiki, Petralona, Northern Greece a shepherd found a small entrance to a cavern that had become visable when the snow had melted.
    He managed to gather a group of villagers to help him widen the entrance to the cave so they could enter it and explore it.
    Inside they found that the cave was rich in stalactites and stalagmites but more importantly they found something extraordinary; A humanoid skull stuck in the sediment of the cave wall and later it was found that not only did the cave contain the skull but it also contained a large number of fossils as well as pre-human species, animal hair, fossilized wood, stone and bone tools.

    After the discovery the skull was given to the University of Thessaloniki in Greece by the President of the Petralona Community. It was decided that when the studying of the skull was completed it was to be put out in a museum together with the rest of cave findings but this never occured.


    The Greek Dr.Aris Poulianos a member of the IUAES (International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences) and also the founder of the AAG (Anthropological Association of Greece) which indicates the mans proficiency level in his field of study was working at the University of Moscow when he was asked by the Prime Minister of Greece to come back home and and take a position of a University Chair in Athens. It correlated to the publishing of Dr.Poulianos book 'The Origins of the Greeks' which is full of fantastic research results showing that Greek people did not originate from any of the Slavic nations but were a mix of people indigenous to Greece as well as the arriving Indo-Europeans. When he returned back home he was enlightened about the skull of Petralona which he began to study immediately as well as the cave it was found in.

    The humanoid found in the cave was named Petralona man or more scientifically Archanthropus of Petralona and has been proven to be 700.000 years old which makes it the oldest europeoid of that age to be found in Europe. Poulianos research also showed that the Petralona man had evolved independently in Europe and did no originate from any species that had come out of Africa.

    In the year 1964 two independent researchers from Germany called Breitinger and Sickenberg tried to dismiss the results of Dr. Poulianos saying that the skull was but 50.000 years old and not 700.000 making it of African origin. They were however dismissed themselves by the highly respected Archeology magazine in the US 1971 who also concluded that the skull was indeed 700.000 years old. Their results were based on the analysis of the rocklayers in the cave as well as the sediment that the skull had been embedded in. After further research in the cave some isolated teeth as well as two pre-human skeletons dating back 800.000 years, 100.000 years before Petralona man were discovered as well as some other fossils of different species.

    As of the present, most scientists who have analyzed the Petralona man says that it belongs to an ancient hominid clearly distinguished from Homo erectus as well as from Homo Neanderthalensis and Homo Sapiens but at the same time showing characteristics of all three showing clear European traits. This finding and analysis result is in direct contradiction with the Out of Africa theory which I will remind the readers of is just a theory and has never been proven.

    Later excavations were conducted in the cave by 46 specialists from 12 different countries which proved further that the results of Dr.Poulianos were correct. In the finds were included such things as fossilized pieces of wood, an oak leaf, animal hair and coprolites (fossilized feces) which made accurate dating available as well as a continous presence of stone and bone tools of the Archanthropus evolutionary stages from lower 750.000 years to the upper 550.000 years layers of sediment found in the cave.

    The research was interrupted due to the dictatorship in Greece and was again resumed and continued to go on until 1983 when it was ordered by the government to be ceased and that it was forbidden to keep excavating for everyone including the original team so for 15 years the research stood still and worst of all was that no reason was provided by the government. Was the reason for the denial in the very walls of the cave?

    After the 15 years the Anthropological Society of Greece took the case to the courts they were finally again allowed to enter the cave but since then the results have been disputed by the Ministry of Culture in Greece fervently trying to overcome the decision and close the cave down.

    The findings of Dr.Poulianos contradicts the official history of the current ruling establishment and as such could not of course be supported or be left alone to the public so his research was suppressed and he was attacked together with his wife where they became physically injured in their own home 2012, the attackers were never found. No further access has been allowed to him or his research team and worst of all is that the skulls whereabouts are now unknown.
    This yet again shows what the current establishment are doing to truth, knowledge and research.

    It says itself that the liars with an agenda who has loads to lose do not want the truth to prevail.

    If you visit the cave today you will see a sign stating that the Petralona man's skull is no more than 300.000 years old. If you read about it on Wikipedia you will see references trying to dismiss the evidence and trying to date the Petralona man to a fitting date for the political agenda of 'one common heritage', one of the cornerstones of multiculturalism, namely between 160.000 years and 240.000 years old.

    Professor C.G. Nicholas Mascie-Taylor of the University of Cambridge sent a letter to the Ministry of Culture in Greece saying that the date of the skull is not 300.000 years old but 700.000 years old and he also disputes the governments suppression of Dr.Poulianos research results.

    Here is his letter:

    The Greek Ministry of Education, Religions, Culture and Sports,

    Bouboulinas 20-22,

    Athens 106 82,

    Dear Sir,

    I am writing on behalf of the European Anthropological Association, which is the umbrella professional and academic association linking all of the national European biological anthropology and human biology societies, to express our concerns about the conservation of the Petralona Cave and Skull, the misinformation of the dating of the skull, as well as the treatment of personnel associated with the conservation of the Cave.

    The bases of our concerns are that the skull has been damaged through many scratches and the crown of a tooth (1st molar) cut off. As requested by Anthropological Association of Greece what is required is a detailed description of the present status of the skull, so that no one in future can arbitrarily damage it further. There is also the problem of dating which has been scientifically dated at about 700,000 years ago not 300,000 as is given at the information desk. There is a very detailed record of the excavations and findings which need to receive further public presentation but which have never been catalogued so as to prevent specimens going missing.

    It is very unfortunate that the Greek Archaeological Department stopped Dr Aris Poulianos from further work in the Cave without any explanation. It is also very worrying that Dr Poulianos and his wife were physically attacked and injured in their home earlier this year and the culprits have not been found. He was also verbally abused when attempting to give an invited presentation to teachers and school children.

    Senior anthropologists and geologists have also been denied access to the Cave and the specimens for further study on a number of occasions without substantive reasons. Earlier this year there has also been misinformation given to the Greek Parliament concerning financial aspects of the Cave.

    I look forward to receiving answers to these questions.

    Yours faithfully

    Professor C G N Mascie-Taylor MA, PhD, ScD (all Cambridge), FSB, FNAS (Hungary)

    Professor of Human Population Biology and Health and President of the European Anthropological Association

    The absolute most important result of Dr.Poulianos research is the co-existence of all main anthropological types at almost the same period of time 750.000 - 500.000 years ago. This means that the seperation in to different races or even species occured almost much earlier than presumed and not only 10.000 - 30.000 years ago as is portrayed by the rulers of today and what I dare call phony scientists.

    The Petralona skull is a famous example of Homo heidelbergensis therefore on the neanderthal line. A few anthros found anatomical reasons why this particular species can't be ancestral to modern humans but they are on the neanderthal mainline probably going back to Homo antecessor (Sima de los Huesos hominins).

    Though that article is implying the world famous Petralona Cave hominin is forbidden knowledge of some sort, when its actually old hat by now. And OOA versus multiregionalism is also old hat by now anyway, the buzz word is 'reticulation'. The real taboo is stating the obvious, that modern humans are thus a collection of geographically overlapping interspecies hybrids (one human race my arse).

    Racialist types have been slow to pick up on this, maybe because it undermines the racial purity fixation.

    Anyway you have to wonder, based on the geographic spread of Witzel's 'Laurasian storyline', if the plot and basic structure of Laurasian mythology are inherited from the Neanderthals that contributed genes into Eurasian populations.

    It would seem that his avenues of study threaten resourceful vested interests .
    :heretic: Yeah he is screwing with a narrative that others do not want changed . The lengths they are going to show more than a academic disagreement .

    Wolpoff and Krantz were harassed for ideological reasons when OOA became tied to the official one human race ideology.

    Petralona, though, is Homo heidelbergensis not especially relevant to modern human origins. Just a neanderthal ancestor.
