One of the mounds of sandstone rocks in the area. I still remember Adam and I managing to find positions to place our hands on one massive sandstone boulder, between us we did manage to move it perhaps a centimeter, but moving it further was beyond belief, and our combined efforts.
Just behind the sandstone jetty is a road of perhaps 2 meters in width and no less than meters in length, which snakes around the southern section of the hill that rises over 35 meters.
There are thousands of rocks, all igneous, both above and below the road that were either cleared from the road or positioned in support. Rather than debate possibilities, I pointed out to Jim four rocks, all some weight, and all carefully stacked on top of each other, and asked him what blade was capable of that balanced arrangement.
He then moderated by one degree, agreeing that this was ancient and people from way back were in involved in placing these particular rocks, but hastened to add that maybe much later the dozer came to down in repairing the older construction.

One unknown in this equation, the manner of transportation of these heavy rocks and the exotic fill at the smaller mound at the Standing Stones site, is destined at this stage to remain hypothetical. The Teachers Have All Gone?
Frederic Slater was, inconvinced he was in contact with the very last source knowledgeable in the First Language. The teachers have all gone. As such, direct contact with people who can understand and speak, sign, gesture and use the rocks that make up the very first language humans spoke, seem lost.
However, in this proclamation of absence, this is one of the very few times Slater was mistaken. We know of, and have spoken to, one of the custodians of the First Language Karno Walker who was with us when investigating the mounds and surrounding archaeology.
Stern-mounted steering oar of an Egyptian riverboat. Public Domain Often when we have been presenting the quantity and quality of archaeology and oral accounts substantiating an Egyptian presence in Australia, some critics have relented minimally in granting potential visiting rights, but are still clouded by materialistic concepts of civilization and progress.
We have always maintained that the ancient Egyptians came as mystical apprentices bound in awe and servitude to their Original mentors. What did surprise, is that over 70 years before we made this apparently radical statement, Slater was no less forthright in allocating a precedence and pedestal.
After examining all his work, we can readily understand why he would make such a sensational claim. In fact, once reading his extensive and impressive hand written notes, we realized Slater was obligated to place the First Australians at the center and beginning of anything esoteric, spiritual, intellectual or democratic.My son Evan and I have written extensively about the site Frederic Slater, President of the Australian Archaeological Education and Research Society, proposed was “Australia’s Stonehenge,” which we refer to as the Standing Stones site, and a complementary site we have named “Adam’s Garden.”.

If one were to compare the men of the traditional world to those of the modern world, certain differences in constitution would become readily apparent.
Australia, although a Federation since , was still a member of the British Empire.
This meant that when Britain declared war on 4 August not only were the French and Russian empires compelled to join the British, but Australia also found herself at war.
People often ask: “How long will it take me to become proficient in language X?” This question is impossible to answer because a lot depends on a person’s language learning ability, motivation, learning environment, intensity of instruction, and prior experience in learning foreign languages.
