When most people think of  the Mediterranean Island of Malta, they think of an amazing vacation destination with awesome beaches and old building  that transports us back in time.  However, Malta is much more than that. On this beautiful island is a three storied underground monolithic structure called the Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni, which  many believe is the worlds oldest underground temple in the world. This temple, thought to be used to worship the mother goddess, is so mysterious that it puts to question the teachings of our modern mainstream history classes.

As you can see by the pictures, this complex is intricately cut into stone and is fairly big.

How big you, you ask?

The site, discovered by happenstance in 1902 by a group of construction workers, needed an estimated 2,000 tons of rock removed to make this underground monolith!

The Hypogeum (meaning underground in Greek) of Hal Saflieni contains lintelled-doorways, a large cistern, trilithons and a ‘”holy of holies” surrounded by embryonic chambers. Additionally, there is an acoustic hall, often called an “Oracle chamber” because many speculate the purpose of the room was for an oracle to chant or conduct other spiritual activities inside. The website Ancient Origins has a great article on the specifics of what makes this room so unique.

The acoustic properties within the Hypogeum have already been studied extensively. It was found by Maltese composer Ruben Zahra and a research team from Italy that sound resonates at 110 Hz within the Oracle chamber, and this matches the same or similar frequency that has been found in many other ancient chambers around the world, including Newgrange in Ireland.  According to Dr Robert Jahn from Princeton University, it may be the dimensions of the room or the quality of the stone that determines the exact pitch of this echo behaviour.

The article goes on to ask if the 110 Hz frequency was a coincidence or by design. The probability that multiple ancient sites, in locations separated by vast distances, having rooms that resonates the same exact frequency is next to zero.  Therefore, the builders clearly wanted these specific frequencies.

But, why?

The before mentioned Ancient Origins article has this to say about the 110 Hz frequency:

One theory put forward by Paolo Debertolis and Niccolo Bisconti of the Universities of Triests and Siena respectively, is that the chamber was constructed in such a way as to created acoustics that would affect the psyche of people, perhaps to enhance mystical experiences during rituals, and this perspective has received scientific backing.  Dr. Ian Cook of UCLA and colleagues published findings in 2008 of an experiment in which regional brain activity in a number of healthy volunteers was monitored by EEG through exposure to different resonance frequencies. Their findings indicated that at 110 Hz the patterns of activity over the prefrontal cortex abruptly shifted, resulting in a relative deactivation of the language centre and a temporary shifting from left to right-sided dominance related to emotional processing. This shifting did not occur at other frequencies.

If there is another reasonable explanation for these rooms, outside of being used for chanting/ meditation chamber meant for spiritual growth, this writer would love to hear it!

Remember, if we believe the teachings of mainstream history books, construction of the site happened in the stone age… with tools made of stones! However, the fact that this site, (along with many other sites created in “prehistory”) has a room designed  to create a frequency that affects the brain in such ways is unequivocal proof that there were at least some very advanced civilizations back in our ancient past.

Moreover, are we really to believe primitive people, only smart enough to make tools and weapons by tying rocks to the end of sticks, had the architectural and engineering prowess to create a site that is three stories underground with 2,000 tons of rocks being removed?  Go back to the top of the article and re-re-look at the pictures. This site is well constructed, with the precision of gifted builders; it is not the work of people that have not yet figured out how to make tools out of metals. Then there is the smoking gun of the acoustics, found here AND other ancient sites, that produces the exact frequency inside them. Simply put, the idea that primitive tribesmen built this, like mainstream historians would have us believe, is asinine. Maybe, just maybe, it is time to start questioning what we are taught about the people of our ancient past!

Burial Chamber

Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni was almost certainly originally a temple of some sorts, most likely to worship the mother goddess. However, it was also used as a massive burial site for some 7,000 very unique humanoid race of people who have some major differences than modern humans. National Geographic did an article in 1920 of the site, and had this to say about the skeletons:

 From an examination of the skeletons of the polished-stone age, it appears that the early inhabitants of Malta were a race of long-skulled people of lower medium height, akin to the early people of Egypt, who spread westward along the north coast of Africa, whence some went to Malta and Sicily and others to Sardinia and Spain.

If someone were to read this without seeing pictures of the sculls they may think that they were just shorter Homo sapiens with longer sculls. But Homo sapiens, nevertheless. Although, looking at the pictures of one of the skulls you can see this is a completely different species of human.

Many of you are probably thinking the head’s shape in the bottom picture was caused by head reshaping practices done by many ancient civilizations around the world. However, the bottom skull was of a person with dolichocephalous, or a disproportionately long head. In today’s world, if a child is born with a disproportionately elongated head it is safe to call it the deformity dolichocephalous. However, when an ancient site is found with 7,000 skeletons, all of medium height and the skulls have a supposedly rare deformity… maybe it is time to look at the possibility that a race of highly advanced humanoids, separate from Homo sapiens, lived in antiquity and have long since become extinct.

This is not simply hyperbole, or a crazy hypothesis without any evidence either.

World renown researcher into the field of “forbidden archaeology” Graham Hancock has written a plethora of very well researched books on our ancient past. In his book entitled Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization (click on the picture above to check out the book on amazon) he has this to say about the skulls:

“One of the skulls… is entirely lacking in the fossa median – the cleary visible ‘join’ that runs along the top of the head where two plates of bone are separated in infancy (thus facilitating the process of birth) but later joined together in adulthood…

What would people with skulls like that have looked like during life?

How could they survived birth and grown to adulthood?”

If there were ever a smoking gun for these skulls belonging to a long-lost race of humans, it is found in Hancock’s last question.

We all have heard of the soft spot on baby’s heads, this is actually what Hancock is talking about in the first paragraph.The soft spot allows the head of a fetus to become flexible, in some cases cone-shaped, so it can be pushed out of the mother’s canal at birth. Although, as you can see from the picture above, the elongated skulls do not have this quality. Therefore, they  would not have been able to contort, making it impossible for it to pass the birthing canal of a female Homo sapiens.

Is it possible that these elongated skeletons found at Hal Saflieni, in other locations on the island of Malta, and in varying locals around the world, belong to a race of advanced humanoids that have been lost to history?

The existence of such a group would actually explain the indigenous tribes starting the practice of reshaping their heads. Think about it, indigenous, and completely disconnected, tribes in South America and Africa did not just start reshaping their heads because they thought it was cool. Sure, if only one tribe reshaped their heads in this way, then you can pass it off as a fashion statement of some sort. However, when indigenous tribes-people, perpetrated by an ocean, start ritualistically reshaping their heads for a few thousand years, you have to start thinking something bigger is going on. The only thing that makes logical sense would be that in their ancient past, their people came across a very advanced species with elongated heads. A primitive tribe would have viewed a species advanced enough to create Hal Saflieni as godlike. It makes sense that said primitive people would start trying to reshape their skulls to emulate those they see as gods.

Again, if there is another logical explanation to explain how indigenous tribes, so disconnected from one another, could start such a bazaar ritual, I would love to hear it.

The Disappearance of the Skeletons

The discovery of an ancient underground grave site with 7,000 skeletons, including elongated skulls, is not something you see everyday. And as such, many of the skeletons made it to museums. By the beginning of the 1970s, 11 of the skulls found their way into the Archeological Museum of the Valletta. Since that time, the skulls (along with the skeletons) have mysteriously disappeared. Today, photographs taken by researchers Dr. Anton Mifsud and his colleague, Dr. Charles Savona Ventura are the only known evidence that the skulls ever existed!

Unfortunately, when you research subject matter like this, you always come upon this exact situation. Skeletons that are controversial and/or contradict any evolutionary model or the mainstream teaching of our ancient past, always end up going “missing”. This is why many call this field of research “Forbidden Archaeology” because the powers that be, so to speak, have deemed it off-limits.

To recap, Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni is best described as an ancient underground temple turned burial site; far too sophisticated for the people of the stone age to have built and housed the remains that can only be described as a different race of humanoids. The remains of the said humanoid race were in a few museums for a short period of time, but have since all but disappeared.

Call me a crazy conspiracy theorist, but there might be something fishy going on here and maybe… just maybe… we should question the current beliefs and teaching of our ancient past.
