What a shrewd man! During the first Gulf War,
Saddam Hussein had 1,500 heavy tanks positioned
on the border between Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

But he buried them in the sand, leaving only
the gun turrets sticking out.

These were well camouflaged, effectively making
them invisible from the air and any ground
surveillance units.

Bad luck! They got discovered. So America shifted
its Keyhole satellite into position over the
Iraqi desert.

Then the 55-feet-long, 12 ton spy satellite took
pictures of the cold desert floor during the
twilight hours.

And do you know, “Big Bird”, as it was called,
had infrared scanners which, from 155 miles above
the earth, could detect a temperature difference
of only half a degree.

So now the satellite was placed in position to
take pictures of the buried tanks.

You see, the tanks would heat up during the hot
daylight hours and continue to hold heat long
after the rest of the desert cooled during the

Well, the buried tanks showed up on the satellite
photo like neon signs.

The exact location of each tank was then plotted
on a target map and given to allied pilots who
systematically eliminated them.


However, Big Bird photographed more than buried
tanks. It made a discovery that blew skeptics out
of the water.

(We’ll come back to what this satellite found,
in a just few minutes.)

Of course, you’ve heard the story of Moses who
led the escape of the Hebrew slaves from Egypt,
and the drowning of Pharaoh’s pursuing army in
the Red Sea?

If you didn’t know, that particular story is
often attacked by critics.

Before the Iraq war, while divers were searching
for possible remains of this event, a professor
Laughed his head off.

With a mile of letters after his name, this clever
man assured us emphatically us that the biblical
Exodus, the chase across the Red Sea, and the
drowning of Pharaoh’s army “never happened.”

Poor guy! He missed the greatest underwater
discovery of the century.

Skeletal remains of horses, soldiers, chariot
cabs and wheels, were found, all mixed together
and scattered over the sea bed of the Gulf of

Yes, here was a huge army of remains. Six-spoked
wheels, 4-spoked wheels and 8-spoked wheels.


But the location also ruffled some feathers.

According to the Bible account, the Red Sea
parted and the Hebrews escaped on a dry sea bed
to the opposite coast, but when Pharaoh’s army
pursued, the sea rolled back from both sides
and drowned every last one of them.

“But the Gulf of Aqaba” is not the Red Sea,”
shouted another skeptic. “So your find is in the
wrong place.”

How would you respond to that?

Well, you may already know that the Red Sea
separates Africa from Arabia, then splits into
two fingers – the Gulf of Suez in Egypt, and the
Gulf of Aqaba between Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

Some have assumed that if the event occurred at
all, it would have to be in the Gulf of Suez,
closest to Egypt.

However, that’s not so!

If you take the geographical details given in the
Bible report literally, they  will actually lead
you not to the Gulf of Suez but to the Gulf of
Aqaba – to a spot on the coast near Nuweiba.

And this is the exact place these remains were


The Egyptians had war chariots in their army and
these, together with all the Egyptian chariots,
were used by the Egyptian army when they pursued
the people of Israel.

“And he made ready his chariot, and took his
people with him: And he took six hundred chosen
chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and
captains over every one of them.” (Ex. 14:6-7)

The first century historian Flavius Josephus
mentions the same number of chariots, as well as
the fact that there were 50,000 horsemen and
200,000 infantry soldiers.

These war chariots were intended for quick
battles and often had two soldiers: one who
drove the chariot and one who fought from the
chariot with bow, arrow and sword.

These chariots were relatively light. The body
work (or chariot basket) was made of wood and
leather. The flooring was of wood, and the wheel
axle was fastened to the underside of the floor.

The wooden shaft leading to the horses (of which
there were two) was also attached under the


However, could these wheels we found on the sea
bed be from some event other than the Exodus?

All right then, what can we discover from the
wheels? Do the wheels tell us anything about the
date of the event which caused them to end up

Would you believe, the number of spokes helps
us arrive at a precise answer.

(a) The 4-spoked wheels were used from the
early period of the 18th dynasty until the
time of Thutmoses IV.

(b) The 8-spoked wheels can be seen on the
chariot bodies of Thutmoses IV’s war chariots,
and are considered to be a short-lived
experiment during a brief spell of his reign.

This was the only time in Egyptian history that
8-spoked wheels were ever used.

(c) After Thutmoses IV, only 6-spoke wheels
were used. However, these were already used
sometimes during the reign of Thutmoses IV.

This establishes the date of the wheels discovered
on the seabed (4-spoke, 6-spoke, and 8-spoke
wheels) as within a limited period – a date during
part of the 18th dynasty, most likely during the
reign of Thutmoses IV – around 1450 BC

Several different varieties of chariots and wheels
were to be expected at the Exodus, since all the
chariots in Egypt were mobilized. (Ex. 14:7)

According to biblical chronology (compared to
known historical dates) the Exodus took place about
1446 BC. This agrees well with the wheel dating.


But I must tell you about the most amazing Gulf
War satellite discovery.

You see, Big Bird photographed more than buried
tanks in Iraq. It made a discovery that blew
skeptics out of the water.

As we noted, critics have said for years that the
Exodus never happened. And others claimed that
it did, but that the exodus crossing took place
in the Gulf of Suez.

Now, get this! When the satellite photo team
examined pictures from that satellite high in the
sky above the Middle East… and turned their
attention to Egypt…

To everyone’s amazement, a thin red line (heated
areas show up as red on infrared photos) was seen
running eastward from the Nile Delta (the ancient
land of Goshen referred to in the biblical book
of Exodus).

It ran eastward, skirting the east side of the
Red Sea.

The book of Exodus states that the escaping
Hebrew slaves in Egypt travelled “around the
desert road toward the Red Sea. (Exodus 13:8)

Well, the satellite photo team examined this
red line with interest.

From the Nile Delta, they noticed that the line
went first a little eastward to Succoth.

According to the book of Exodus, it was at
Succoth that the Israelite slaves, as they left
Egypt, were marshalled into ranks for the journey

The line then extended over the high plateau of
the Sinai Peninsula, finally dropping down onto
what is today called the Gulf of Aqaba, the
easternmost finger of the Red Sea.

Was this the route of the Exodus?

If you look at a map of this area, it will appear
that, if so, the Hebrews were led into trap, with
the sea in front and the rugged mountains behind
them, through which the pursuing army of Pharaoh
came after them.

But the thin red line emerged from the east side
of the red Sea and continued into the present
day Saudi Arabia at the foot of the high peak
known as Jebel el Lawz – the real Mount Sinai!

The satellite photo team stared incredulously
at the photo. A red line, as if drawn by God’s
own hand, traced the exact route of the Hebrew

The red line entered the sea at Nuweiba on the
Gulf of Aqaba, and emerged again on the other
side in Saudi Arabia.

And get this –  the sea area in between these
two red lines is precisely where our teams
discovered the Egyptian chariot and skeletal


When the Gulf War finally ended, archaeologists
went back into the region to discover how it was
possible for a 3,500 year old trail to exist well
enough to show up on satellite photos.

They found that 3 million people, with all their
livestock, pulverised the desert sand into a fine,
four-like powder.

During the desert nights, the humidity rises to
levels near 100%, thus wetting the powdery sand,
making a concrete-like substance.

Through the years, the highway was buried by
shifting sands, protecting the trail from the

During the day it would heat up like the Iraqi
tanks, and being more dense than the surrounding
sand, continue holding the heat longer into the
cold nights!

A coincidence? Forget it!

An interesting 3,500 year old prophecy in Exodus
states: “But indeed for this purpose I have
raised you up, that I may show my power in you,
and that My Name may be declared in all the
earth.” (Exodus 9:16)

This event was so spectacular – unlike any
other in history – that it has been the subject
of famous paintings and Hollywood epics, such
as “The Ten Commandments”, starring Yul Brunner
and Charlton Heston.

This historical event of 3,500 years ago has,
indeed, been declared in all the earth – just as
the ancient prophecy said it would!

Folk are still asking me. Are these and other
discoveries available on DVD?

Yes, I’ve been listening… So here they are –
8 amazing DVD presentations (put together, very
modestly – nothing fancy) – but the facts they
give are astonishing.

Some of these are quite CONTROVERSIAL – but the
focus is on EVIDENCE. So here they are:

1. Secrets of the Lost Races
2. Has Noah’s Ark Been Found? (In two parts.
Part 2 is Into the Forbidden Valley)
3. The Lost Cities of Sodom and Gomorrah
4. In Search of Pharaoh’s Lost Army
5. Ark of the Covenant
6. Strange Signs in the Sky
7. Secrets of Ancient South America
8. In a Coffin in Egypt

If you’d like to see more detailed information
about each DVD I have put up a special simple
webpage (which also has EASY ordering facilities).
Just go to:

Hope this information is helpful.

Thanks again for being on my list.

Sincere best wishes,

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: * * * * * * *
