Do you love a good mystery, ? The vast
Amazon forest still conceals many mysteries.

This report concerns man-made lights that never go out
– but just keep on burning, century after century.

As a matter of fact, I have written about this quite a
bit in the past – especially in Dead Men’s Secrets
( )

Here was an astonishing rumor —but was it true?

On trek through the forbidding Matto Grosso region of
Brazil in 1925, Colonel P.H. Fawcett, D.S.O., was
challenged by native reports of mysterious cold lights
in some ruined cities of the jungle.

Not only that. There existed, it was claimed, a city
still living, inhabited, illuminated at night. Could
this really be? Might there be some still surviving
remnant of a long lost civilization, which was using
“forgotten” knowledge?

amazon4Fawcett came out averring he had glimpsed one of these
jungle cities. He reentered the region to further pursue
his passion, but this time disappeared without trace.

It is noteworthy that few have ever set foot in this
“terra prohibida” and returned.

A “lost world” indeed, it is a land infested with
enormous swamp creatures, wild beasts and wilder men.
This region is generally bounded by the Rio Xingu, the
Rio Tapajos and the Amazon.

In regard to the supposed jungle lights, I am somewhat
intrigued. The existence of devices which provided
lighting at night in ancient times cannot be questioned,
because so many classical writers describe them. I was
dumbfounded to discover this.

Until 1890, we possessed only candles, torches and oil
lamps, and it is easy to think that this was always the

amazon2However, we must now regard the past use of lighting
and electricity as a historical certainty.

In Antioch, Syria, in the 6th century, an ever-burning
lamp was found with an inscription indicating it had
been burning more than 500 years.

And in England, during the early Middle Ages, a third
century perpetual lamp was found that had burned for
a thousand years.

In Rome, when the sepulchre of Pallis was opened in
1401,the tomb was found to be illuminated by a perpetual
lamp which had been alight for more than 2,000 years.
Nothing could put it out, until, in an act of vandalism,
it was broken to pieces.

amazon3Back again in Syria, in the 11th century, Kedrenus, the
Byzantium historian, records having seen a perpetual
lamp at Edessa, which had been burning for 500 years.

A sealed mausoleum beside the Appian way near Rome was
opened in April 1485. It contained a sarcophagus
containing the body of a shapely and beautiful
patrician girl. At her feetstood a lighted lamp which
had been burning for 1,500 years!

The body was that of Cicero’s daughter, Tullia. She
lay in a transparent, all-preserving fluid, the nature
of which was unknown.

When the preserver was removed, her lifelike form with
red lips and dark hair was seen by 20,000 people. The
lamp continued to burn for some time.

Many of these lighted lamps have been found in the
subterranean vaults of Memphis, Egypt, but after
exposure to air, the lights went out.

Well, what do you think about that?  If you want to
know more about these strange lamps, the best I can
do is point you to a site where you can learn more
about the Dead Men’s Secrets e-book. And after you
receive it, zero in on Chapter 25,  “Ruins That Glow
in the Night”.

Anyway, here’s where to go:

And happy reading!

Warm regards,

Jonathan Gray

About Jonathan Gray

International explorer, archaeologist and author Jonathan Gray has travelled the world to gather data on ancient mysteries. Jonathan has published more than 100 books and videos, written several hundred papers, and hosted newspaper columns. He writes in a popular, conversational style, but with a keen eye for evidence to support his findings. The documentation sometimes includes certificates, private letters and facts that others refuse to publish. A controversial, highly sought after speaker, Jonathan has appeared on numerous television and radio shows worldwide, and lectures to audiences on every continent. He is a hands-on archaeologist. Over the past 47 years, he has penetrated some largely unexplored areas, including parts of the Amazon headwaters. He has also led expeditions to the bottom of the sea and to remote mountain and desert regions of the world. His findings include evidence of ancient Egyptians in the Americas, remains of ancient giants on a remote Pacific island and of Egyptian chariot parts and skeletal remains scattered over the seabed. As distinct from the general archaeologist who specialises in a particular locality or theme of interest, Jonathan Gray’s research is into global patterns. This unique approach has propelled him to the forefront of little-known discoveries that shake traditional theories of our past. Archaeology first grabbed Jonathan at the age of ten – when he read a magazine article telling how British explorer Percy Fawcett had found a dead, vine choked city in the wilds of the Amazon. The ruins were guarded by savages wielding clubs and poison darts. As it turned out, Jonathan’s first expedition was into that same unexplored region… where natives shrank human heads to the size of an orange. In the course of his explorations in more than 30 countries, Jonathan began to uncover evidence of surprising “out of place” artefacts. According to what he was taught at school, these were impossible! They simply should not exist! And these were not just isolated anomalies. There was a global pattern to them, suggesting an ancient worldwide civilization of astonishing proportions. That’s when he knew that someone had to speak up. He realised that this information was of tremendous value. WEBSITES, BOOKS, DVDs WEBSITE BOOKS Dead Men's Secrets: * * * * * * *
