Muse of Mysteries & maps


AMEXEM, AZTLAN, TURTLE & TA-MERI-KA are among the many names given to Empires of MUURS or Mound Builders inhabiting North America in a period dated to: 10,000 BCE (BEFORE CHRISTIAN ERA).

Many leading anthropologists, historians and other scientists have themselves been flabbergasted by recent pronouncements in various reputable circles about the existence of such empires.

Intriguing pre-historic verification of human activities from Alaska to near the tip of South America, suggest the New World may be at least 20,000 years older than first imagined. Near British Columbia's Queen Charlotte Islands archeologists on a routine dive found a small blade of dark basalt. Its sharp edge and flaked surface suggested it was no ordinary rock. It proved later to be made by people who lived on now sunken lands before the Ice Age. Some scientists are still unable to embrace this idea though they are in possession of vital evidence.
