By Laird Scranton

It is generally accepted that the Maori people arrived in New Zealand quite recently, sometime after AD 1200. However, new evidence suggests that their culture is most likely centuries older with roots that can be traced back to the archaic Gobekli Tepe site in Turkey, built around 10,000 BC. In addition to shared creation concepts, he details a multitude of strikingly similar word pronunciations and meanings, shared by Maori language and the Dogon and Egyptian languages, as well as likely connections to various Biblical terms and traditions.

He discusses the Maori use of standing stones to denote spiritual spaces and sanctuaries and how their esoteric mystery schools are housed in structures architecturally similar to those commonly found in Ireland.
