Civilizaciones perdidas by Tomás Martínez Rodríguez

By Tomás Martínez Rodríguez

Un recorrido por los lugares y yacimientos arqueológicos más insólitos del planeta. Un viaje en el tiempo desde el génesis de nuestra especie hasta l. a. extinción de las grandes civilizaciones de l. a. antigüedad.

Los vestigios y lugares misteriosos que aparecen en las páginas de Civilizaciones perdidas inspiran los angeles imaginación, producen admiración y hasta temor. Su existencia plantea interrogantes sobre sus avanzados conocimientos en astronomía, matemáticas, ingeniería e incluso su extraordinary visión de l. a. historia y su forma de entender l. a. religión. Estas evidencias siguen desafiando el pensamiento moderno. Grandes culturas cuya desaparición comienza, tras décadas de estudio, a ser comprendida.

Tomé Martínez analiza en los angeles obra ciudades milenarias, lugares de poder, objetos imposibles, tumbas, momias, reliquias sagradas, naciones desaparecidas cuyo nombre apenas resuena en los mitos y leyendas de los angeles antigüedad... las huellas dejadas por nuestros ancestros son numerosas y no dejan de aparecer nuevos testimonios de viejas y olvidadas presencias. Todos estos testimonios y monumentos sirvieron para expresar los angeles conexión entre los hombres y las fuerzas invisibles del Cosmos.

Razones para comprar l. a. obra:

• Muestra los datos más actuales y también los más sorprendentes; aquellos que cambiarán para siempre nuestra concepción del pasado remoto de l. a. humanidad.
• Presenta nuevas evidencias que constatan asombrosos conocimientos científicos por parte de las antiguas civilizaciones.
• Descubre las inteligentes y sutiles fórmulas que idearon los pueblos de l. a. antigüedad para proteger los asombrosos conocimientos técnicos y científicos que poseían así como los fraudes arqueológicos que hacen tambalear nuestra visión de importantes facetas de los angeles historia.
• Un libro que muestra una visión revolucionaria de nuestra manera de interpretar los tiempos remotos en los que l. a. humanidad construyó l. a. frágil ilusión de l. a. civilización con lo que todo eso comporta.

Tras décadas de estudio resulta evidente que muchos de estos enigmas jamás serán resueltos. No pasa lo mismo con las causas que propiciaron el declive y extinción de muchas de estas grandes culturas.

Example text

The task of the industrial archaeologist is to determine the sequence of events and to account for the changes which have taken place since the initial establishment of an industry on a particular site. It is clear, for example, that water power played a major role in the location of many post-medieval industries. A site chosen for its water-power potential was then often developed by the construction of leats and storage ponds or by lowering the tailrace level below the mill in order to increase the head of water across the wheel.

Site for a long period and so technological (Shelley Richards, Ironbridge Gorge Museum) Landscapes and townscapes innovations replace rather than supplement older methods. The search for metallic ores, on the other hand, is more haphazard: capital investment has generally been more limited and so old methods survived for longer, sometimes alongside newer ones. The landscape also reveals the increasing complexity of technology in the course of the nineteenth century. On coal-mining sites, the simple pithead buildings for pumping and winding were supplemented by coal-washing and -screening plant, together with pithead baths and other social facilities for the workforce.

Landscape, like context, is a term that is not easy to define. It is often taken to mean natural scenery to which the onlooker reacts aesthetically. To the historian and the archaeologist, however, landscape is the physical manifestation of changes wrought by man in both space and time and can be interpreted by the trained eye. Most previous studies of the landscape have concerned themselves with patterns of cultivation and settlement over a long period of time. It is perhaps only in the last 250 years that industrial development has superimposed itself on this already man-made landscape and its effects have often been cataclysmic by comparison, despite the shorter time dimension.
