The Cyclopean Megalithic Works Of Italy


Many of you will know about megalithic works found in Egypt, Lebanon and Peru, but there are many other locations on the planet, such as Tiryns in Greece. In ancient Greek tradition, Tiryns was thought to have been founded by Proitos who captured it from his brother Akrisios, king of Argos, and then had the bellyhand Cyclops from Lycia build for him the famous walls constructed of massive, irregular, limestone blocks, some weighing several tons.


 Cyclops?  Scattered throughout ancient Latium (the region in Italy where Rome was later founded) are the megalithic ruins of strangely built polygonal stone walls so stunningly unique, bizarre, and futuristic that for thousands of years it was believed they were constructed by a prehistoric race of giants, now forgotten.


In the photo above, near Alatri in Italy, you can see the scale of work that these mysterious ancient “Cyclops” made. And notice that in the depression above far inferior work was later done. Cyclopean masonry is a type of stonework built with massive boulders, fitted together with minimal clearance between adjacent stones and no use of mortar. The term comes from the belief of classical Greeks that only the mythical Cyclopes had the strength to move the enormous boulders.


And here at Alba Fucens, in central Italy again we see that the higher and later stone work is far simpler than that below, exactly as we see in Peru. Many classical writers and historians, including Homer, Hesiod, Plutarch, Thucydides, and Diodorus Siculus, stated in their writings the idea that the Cyclopean ruins of Italy (and of Europe in general) were erected by this now extinct Cyclopean race.


The photo above is from Segni, near Rome, and is attributed by many scholars to the Romans. But just as it is highly unlikely that the Inca built the megalithic works of Cusco Peru, or the dynastic Egyptians the Sphinx or Great Pyramids of Giza, we must look much farther back in time.


Ages before the Romans existed, the fair land of Italy was inhabited by nations who have left indestructible monuments as the only records of their history. Those wonderful cities of early Italy which have been termed Cyclopean, are thickly scattered throughout certain districts, and are often perched like eagles’ nests, on the very crests of mountains, at such an elevation as to strike amazement into the traveler who now visits them. It is time to rewrite history…
