Arkaim (L)

Arkaim is a 2nd millennium BC archaeological site in Russia, although some date it to 7000 BC(c). It has been compared with Stonehenge(b), troy towns(d) and Plato’s Atlantis(a). It is also claimed as a psychic ‘hotspot’’(e) as well as a site of UFO activity!

ArkaimThe Atlantis link is just fanciful and does not stand up to the most cursory examination. For example, there is no evidence that Arkaim was ever submerged as Atlantis was recorded to have been by Plato.

A 2014 article that compared Arkaim with Stonehenge commented that “It would seem that Arkaim is an even better astronomical observatory than its namesake.”(g)

Victoria Lepage, a purveyor of mystical twaddle has endeavoured to incorporate Arkaim into her pathetic view of world history(h).     

Dale Drinnon’s website included an extensive entry on Arkaim in Feb. 2012(f).

August 2015 produced a report(i) that a 2,000-year-old skeleton of a female, with an elongated skull had been unearthed in the vicinity of Arkaim. Apparently, this was the result of a local tradition of head-binding.
