The Ancient Path of the Sun by Mark Atwood, which I helped collaborate on, has just been re-released with a few updates made to it. These have added about 8 new pages to the book. The updates include new information and some corrections. You can find where to purchase the updated edition here.

New information includes:

  • the meaning of the layout of the mounds of Europe, and their relationship to a symbol of the ancient world in a unique discovery
  • further information on the alignments of the descending passage of the Great Pyramid, their meaning, and relationship to ancient Egyptians texts and rituals, as well as to European initiation rituals and mythology
  • this has led to further identification of the pattern of initiation than existed in the ancient world, particularly in Egypt and Europe, and its connection to the equinoxes and constellations

Corrections include:

  • the renaming of Mark’s Sun Path Correlation Theory to the Sacred Sun Path Theory
  • the alignments of the descending passage of the Great Pyramid (which are a bit complicated to explain here)
  • the alignments of the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan (again, a bit complicated to explain, though it does not face the equinox sunset, but sunset on another important date in the Mayan calendar, while also incorporating another equinox alignment in conjunction with a nearby mountain peak)
  • the alignment of the Khafre causeway at Giza (it doesn’t align to a cross quarter day as identified by Hancock and Bauval, but to another important nearby date in the ancient Egyptian calendar, as more recently stated by Bauval)
  • the alignments of Nabta Playa in Egypt (again complicated to explain!)

So most of the corrections are to do with the alignments of some complex ancient sites; it took quite a bit of digging to find accurate information, since their alignments are not generally discussed.

Thank you again to all of you who have supported us while we have worked on this. A small shout out to Karim also, who submitted some helpful research on the mounds of Europe, particularly Newgrange, and their possible meaning.
