Italian Archeologist: Anatolia - Home to First Civilization on Earth
Prof. Dr. Marcella Frangipane is trying to convince scientists that Anatolia is the source of civilization on earth, and not Mesopotamia, as historians have claimed.
After 13 years of work in the Aslantepe Mound Orduzu, Malatya, Frangipane says the archefacts she uncovered prove that the first civilization was established in Anatolia. According to Frangipane, the swords he found in Aslantepe and the palace, are the oldest in the world. These findings contradict everything in history books. Frangipane held a seminar, accompanied by a slide show, entitled 'Anatolia and Birth of State' for academics at the Turkish Embassy in Rome. While finding her assertions 'striking', Italian experts said they wanted to discuss the subject in a larger scientific forum.
Frangipane's ideas rock Italian and Global scientific circles
With Turkey unable to promote Aslantepe, the first excavations were done by the French in the 1930's. Their research has been continued by Italian Rome La Sapienza University archeologists since 1961. The Italians have covered all the costs, including the hiring of a custodian to protect the artifacts. Frangipane works hard to publicise his findings, which will earn Anatolia a place in history. Turkey, however cannot sufficiently promote it. Aslantepe was a city from 5000BC to 712BC, until the Asyrian invasion, and was later abandoned for a long time. It then became a Roman village from 500 to 600AD, and later the Byzantine necropolis. The first palace in the world was built in Aslantepe in 3350BC. There are storage chambers, a corridor, a courtyard and a temple in the palace.

Boy O Boy, That it was.
I think 580 was hwy-17 in those days. I still tell people about a sign that was once at the hwy-17 and 101 interchange. The sign looked like a bowl of spaghetti and said 'MINGLE', no kidding.
My only child (Dr blam) was born in San Jose hospital in 1968. He presently lives in Glendora.
As I remember, Hwy 17 was the 'Bloody Nimitz.' The 580 a.k.a McArthur, runs to the east, roughly connecting Hayward and Oakland via pretty green rolling hills. The Angels on their bikes and in their 'colors' seemed jarringly out of place in that upscale environment. I guess their 'business' interests enabled them to buy real estate wherever they wanted to. As for the sign at the Nimitz and 101, I don't recall it specifically but I certainly came close to "mingling" on it any number of times. That was (and maybe still is) one scary freeway!
I've heard that for years from women. In fact, I think the human usage drove up the price some.
I agree. That's the only picture I could find of someone that claims to be Ainu. I've seen others that don't look asian at all.
I've read some speculation that the original Samurai were these tall, hairy and light skinned people and that they were the original 'royals.' ...and, that the Japanese custom of 'white face' was the Asian types way of emulating the appearance of the royals. Also, there are supposedly ancient paintings of the Samurai that depict these people and the Japanese keep these paintings in hiding. Even so, I've seen pictures of Samurai with full beards and real hairy leggs.
Try this one. I can't post it because it's copyrighted:
Realize that there are very few full-blooded Ainu left. They are vanishing through interbreeding with Japanese. Consider how few full-blooded African blacks remain in the U.S. or South America, and how often they exhibit mixed-race physical features.
The web site where you found the images of the Count and the Tocharians is...um...interesting. Given its rather obvious bias I'm inclined to give its objectivity a lot of Kentucky windage. But even it agrees with my point that the Ainu are called "hairy" only in contrast to the rather hairless Japanese.
I thought that was supposed to be Atlantis?
Then there's WWF's George "The Animal Steele". You couldn't see his back at all.
My money is on the Celts when it comes to amount of hair. I'll just say personal experience.
Yeah, I just use their pictures.
Good picture, thanks. Pictures are hard to find.

I just read your 2003 post, and was intrigued with your mention of a very hairy mexican family with possible blood afinities to China. I have often thought that the Chinese landed on the West coast of Mexico, perhaps in the area originally known as Aztlan. Do you know what state these people lived in. I studied some archeology and anthropology in Mexico, so have a special interest.
Just updating the GGG info, not sending a general distribution.
