The Phoenician-Celtic Kings

of New England

I wish to proclaim the victor in the Pythian

race of the bronze-shield-bearers.


to cry out with deep girdled graces at

his triumph-happy man,

and the glory of Cyrene, the horse-driver.

Once the flowering-haired son of Leto

snatched Cyrene away from the wind-echoing vales

of Pelion,

took the huntress-maiden in a golden chariot,

and established her as queen in a fruitful land,

to dwell in plenty at the foundation of a

third continent.

Pindar {522-433 BC}

Pyrhians 9, 1-7.

Collapsed Temple Found

The Sun-worshipping peoples of the Old World who entered the Indian Ocean at the dawn of metallurgy, believed that, if they continued eastwards in the direction of the rising Sun, they would eventually re-discover the Lost Paradise of Mankind, the abode of the Sun-God, from where he rose each morning to cross the sky; the land of Kenti-Armenti of the Egyptians, and after Euro-Asia and Africa, the third continent.

Indeed the third continent, Australia, was known and explored before Bronze Age seafarers first reached the Americas. To the Greeks of Homers' time {800 BC} this lost paradise of mankind, 'heaven' to many, was the location of the fabled Elysian Fields, the happy plain at the worlds' end.

For example, in the Odyssey, 4; 561-9, Proteus of Egypt predicted a happy end for King Menelaus:

"The immortals will send you to the Elysian plain at the worlds' end,

to join red-haired Rhadamanthus {later ruler of Cretan Phaistos}

in the land where living is made easiest for mankind, where no

snow falls, no strong winds blow and their is never any rain,

by day after day of West Winds' tuneful breeze comes in from

Ocean to refresh its folk. This is how the gods will deal with Helens'

husband and recognise in you the son-in-law of Zeus." 

Traditions hoary with age spoke of this lost paradise as the land of origin of all mankind, ruled over by a race of gods, Titans who were the fathers of civilisations. These were the mystical Uru whose name survives across the earth.

Hesiod {735 BC} in his "Works and Days", 166-9 speaks of Titans thus:

"...there was created a god-like race of hero-men... Grim war and

dread battle destroyed part of them...

But to the other father Zeus the son of Cronos gave a living and

an abode apart from men, and made them dwell at the ends

of the Earth. And they live untouched by sorrow in the islands of

the Blessed along the shore of deep swirling Ocean, happy heroes for

whom the grain-giving earth bears honey-sweet fruit

flourishing thrice a year, far from the deathless gods..."

Hesiod probably had at his disposal writings now lost to us, of legendary accounts of the people of the first civilisation and thier local conflicts, and their spread beyond their own shores, particularly the islands to the east of Australia/ New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga, the Solomans and other islands of the West Pacific. These, together with Australia, were the "Islands of the Blessed"; lands rich in all manner of mineral wealth to which, as the Age of Bronze wore on, mining fleets in great numbers, from India and Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Mediterranean lands, ventured out into the Indian Ocean.
