Hello, and welcome to my first thread in this forum. Excuse my incapability of decent formatting, I usually lurk forums, having never posted on one.
Do not let this discourage you, as the topic at hand is very interesting.

Today, I shall introduce you to the story of Manuscript 512 of the National Library of Brazil. Originally titled:
("Historical relation of an occult, large, very old settlement with no inhabitants, that was found in the year 1753").
"Relação histórica de huma oculta, e grande Povoação, antiguissima sem moradores, que se descubrio no anno de 1753"

Peaked your interest already? Come along then, it gets better.


manus.jpg
The first page of the manuscript.

This document was casually found at the library's collection some 86 years after it was written, in the year 1839.
It was then submitted to more careful appraisal by the Historical and Geographical Institute of Brazil, and it was subsequently published in its entirety on the Intitute's magazine. The document consists of 10 pages, some with graphical depictions of found texts.
The author is unknown. There are many theories as to who the autor might be, but I suppose they are irrelevant. What is known is that it was written by the leader of the expedition: A brazilian Bandeirante (Pioneer), the explorers of the brazilian wilderness.

Now, on to the contents of the document itself.
All relevant information will be translated to english and commented upon. Mind you this is all written in archaic portuguese, so a 1:1 translation is impossible.
Also bear in mind that certain parts of the text are lost, as you can see on the image above. This is indicated by [...]
Some content might be irrelevant to ancient lost history discussion, I shall skip these with (etc), and generally simplify the text greatly to avoid lengthy descriptions.
The author is very descriptive, at times poetic. So I shortened it as much as I could, still keeping context.


These are the very first lines, mostly lost to time.
///
"In america […]
In the countryside […]
Along the […]
Field master […]
and his company. Having ten years been travelling through the outback, attempting to find the silver mines of the great discoveror Moribeca (etc) "
///


After the introduction, he relates the finding of a mountain.
///
"After a long and untimely journey, incited by the greed of gold, almost lost for many years in this vast outback, we have discovered a mountainous range so tall, it seemed to reach high into the ether. (etc). A glow from farther away could be admired, mainly when the sun shone upon the crystal of which the mountain was made, creating such a woundrous sight none dared to look away. (etc, lots of poetic descriptions of the mountain) We decided to investigate that admirable prodigy of nature, having arrived at the feet of the mountains, with no hardship on our way. However, circling the mountain range, we found no easy path to commit to these brazilian alps, resulting in an inexplicable sadness upon us."
///


They finally find a way through.
///
"Cramped as we were, with the intent to fall back the next day, it happened that a slave, walking afoot(etc) discovered a path through the mountains, that seemed cut, as if by device (human endeavor), and not by nature. (etc) we started to climb, finding many loose rocks, by which we judged to be a road undone by time.
(lengthy description of the climb)
We spotted spotted a great settlement, thinking it to be some brazilian city. We climbed down the valley (etc).
///


Some of the following part is lost, and I will skip most of it. By context, assume they sent a few scouts to this city.
This is where things get interesting.
///
"We have been waiting two days for the scouts (etc) until they arrived, telling us no inhabitants were found. This confused all of us. (etc) Then an indian of our company decided to check it for himself. He returned haunted, having discovered no trace of any person whatsoever. This made us even more confused, and we did not believe this for we had seen houses(etc). We then decided all of us would enter this settlement bearing arms in the dead of night (etc) we found no way in but the main road of the settlement, whose entrance has three arches of great height, the middle one the tallest, and the two on the side smaller: over the great, main arch, we saw letters, that could not be copied due to the great height (of the arch). Then a road, wide as the arches, with two-story houses in both sides, with their boundaries of carved stone, ruined by time."
///

The archway he describes looks suspiciously like that kind of architecture we know and love.
This image is of a supposed roman arch in Algeria. Posted here for comparative purposes.

Moving on...

///
[...] "Noting by the regularity, and simmetry in which they were made, it all seems like one single building, in reality, they are many. Some with their terraces uncovered. They are without roof tiles, because the roofs are made of re-burnt tile(?), and others of slab. We ran with much fright through some houses, and in none we found implements, or furniture. (etc) the houses are domed, in a manner which the voices of those who spoke would echo inside frighteningly."
///

Two-story, domed houses you say?
More and more, this discovery seems to hint at what we call "Classical" architecture. Only it is found in the middle of the brazilian wilds, abandoned.
For me, this reeks of remnants of what we identify as a global civilization wiped in the last reset.
house-built-in-the-classical-style-with-columns-balconies-and-dome-KHAM0W.jpg

There is more, in case you were wondering. I will be skipping some unimportant parts, and focus on the juicy stuff.

///
Passing those houses (etc) we found ourselves in a regular square, and in the middle of it was a column of black stone, of extraordinary greatness. Above it, was a statue of a regular man, with one hand on his left side, and his right arm stretched, pointing with his index towards North. In each side of the aforementioned square is a needle(?) mimicking the ones which the romans used. Some of them were broken, as if damaged by some lightning bolts(?) (adapting language context in this, since it is written in archaic portuguese, perhaps he really meant "very damaged") By the right side of this square is a lofty building, looking like the main home of some lord of the land, with a great hall on the entrance. And still afraid we did not go through all houses, being them so many, and the [...] form some [...] found a [...] of extraordinary mass [...] people found great difficult to lift it."
///

Sadly, the most interesting part has been lost to time. Apparently they found some object of a great mass they could not lift. I wonder what it is.
Also, I do not understand what he meant by "needles (...) which the romans used."

Perhaps he meant these lines on the ground, or even obelisks, commonly found in roman squares.
rome-1945033_1920.jpg

Continuing... Now we get to the meat of it, that links the story with the mudflood.

///
"The bats were many, that charged on our faces (lol) (etc) Over the portico of the main road is a figure of half-relief, carved of the same rock and naked from the waist above, crowned in a laurel wreath: It is a young person, beardless, with a band and a skirt across the waist. Under the shield of such figure are some letters consumed by time. We have recognized the following script:
man-1.jpg
.
On the left part of said square is another building, totally ruined. And by the vestiges it seems to have been a temple, as it still has most of its frontpiece(etc), and in its ruined walls, we see great works with some figures, and portraits carved in stone with crosses of various shapes, ravens, and other minute details we could not appreciate in time. Following such building is a great part of the settlement, all ruined and buried in great and frightening openings on the earth. Without there being in this whole circumference herbs, trees or plants made by nature, but piles of stone, some blunt others carved, for what we understand the borders of [...]version, because still between [...] like of dead bodies, that [...] and part of this unhappy [...] of, and helpless [...] maybe by some earthquake."
///

So, after finding some strange, greek-like script, and a temple, our intrepid adventurers find a buried section of the city, uncovered by vegetation (as if covered by mud/earth), filled with piles of stone, and they theorize about an earthquake. Mind you, the part about dead bodies seems by context to be a comparison with something, not that they found bodies per se. This fits so well into the whole mudflood theory, I feel myself blushing.

I will now skip a whole page mostly, because after this, he mentions a river in front of the square, and they go down it for three days, mostly describing vegetation, apparently rice fields(?) wildlife, and hopes of finding gold. Also ducks they could kill with their bare hands, due to lack of bullets.

Afterwards, they find a waterfall and some caves, and suddenly...

///
"After going east from such waterfall, we found many caves (etc) we also found some loose rocks on the surface, with silver, as if taken out of the mines, left over to time.
Between these caves we saw a covering with a great slab, and the following words worked on the stone
2.jpg
, that imply a great mystery as what seems to be[...] over the portico of the temple, we saw others of this form:
3.jpg
.
Away from the settlement, a cannon-shot away, is a building, like a field-house, which you enter by a large doorway, by a staircase of many colors, (etc)."
///

More cryptic scripts...

I will resume the last couple of pages:
Basically, the author marvels at the greatness of this ancient populace, and at the riches of the land they once inhabited.
Then, they finally find gold in a house (yay), and describe a coin: " of one part with an image or figure of a young man on his knees, and the other side of the coin a cow, a crown, and an arrow."

Then another script.
4.jpg


Relevant to the topic of lost history, that's pretty much it. I hope you enjoyed this read, feel free to add in the comments if you reconize any of the scripts, or any other useful info.

On the coin they found, is the image of a lad, a BOW(not cow) a crown, and an arrow.

According to some parts I did not translate, this is in the old state of Bahia.

this was the territory of Bahia in 1701:
baiaold.png

This is their new border:
bbb.png

It seems the extent of their border used to encompass entirely what we now call the state of "Espirito Santo", and they have claimed some land west of the São Francisco river.
So, basically the story took place somewhere inside mordern day Bahia, starting east from the S.F river, all the way to down Espirito Santo.
Quite an area. It could be narrowed it down a bit, though.

In red, the S.F river.
In ciano, is the mountainous region of Bahia.
teerer.png

This place of full of valleys, mountains and rivers, as described.

Out of all these, two fit the bill the most. One is called, the "Peak of Souls" it is 2km tall.
sols.jpg
On top of this mountain, is a natural archway called "Gate of Heaven" due to its altitude. I would say it fits the bill, as the explorer said the mountain reached "upwards to the ether".

Another place (quite near in fact) is the National Park of "Chapada Diamantina". It is a very nice valley with a river cutting through it.

Other than that, who knows? The mountainous area is huge. Some parts are even flooded by dams, creating artificial lakes. It could be under water, even.

Helped you with the formatting. Centering images is a good way to make it easier to read.

We will try to make it automatic so that images will be automatically centered without doing anything.

When someone says "National Park" it automatically rings a bell. I don't remember if KD used to say that all national parks are suspicious or if it was Static in the Attic (youtuber). Anyway, could you point me to the original manuscript? Thanks, in advance.
Post automatically merged:

Nevermind, I've just found it, but it's barely readable. Where did you get the transcript in Portuguese from?

I think the PTB start acting in Brazil in the XIX century, with the arrival of the Emperor of Portugal. They must have "taken care" of such a city.

It really is barely readable, I found it transcribed on a brazilian website Dedicated to the manuscript, Then I translated it to english myself.
As KD used to say, national parks are full of cover-up potential, as you cannot dig, open areas or do anything really other than walking on trails.

Well in the old forum on my Mars thread we had begun discussing "off limits" places military land , certain areas of national parks public land private land, etc.and how all these designations keep people away from certain uncomfortable archeological sites .You could use Middle East politics to get a picture of what I mean.Seems like every other archeological dif over there is interrupted by war or some nation state disputing it or sequestering it for the future.I read somewhere that Queen Elizabeth owns 1/6 of the worlds land.

That writing reminds me of the muisca over in Columbia.


That wiki article says they only had writing for their numbers, but I had always thought it was strange that they came up with writing for numbers, but didn't figure out writing words.

I wonder if these guys had writing in Brazil, and the people in Columbia just had some marginal contact and picked up their numbers perchance?

Hello, and welcome to my first thread in this forum. Excuse my incapability of decent formatting, I usually lurk forums, having never posted on one.
Do not let this discourage you, as the topic at hand is very interesting.

Today, I shall introduce you to the story of Manuscript 512 of the National Library of Brazil. Originally titled:
("Historical relation of an occult, large, very old settlement with no inhabitants, that was found in the year 1753").
"Relação histórica de huma oculta, e grande Povoação, antiguissima sem moradores, que se descubrio no anno de 1753"

Peaked your interest already? Come along then, it gets better.


The first page of the manuscript.

This document was casually found at the library's collection some 86 years after it was written, in the year 1839.
It was then submitted to more careful appraisal by the Historical and Geographical Institute of Brazil, and it was subsequently published in its entirety on the Intitute's magazine. The document consists of 10 pages, some with graphical depictions of found texts.
The author is unknown. There are many theories as to who the autor might be, but I suppose they are irrelevant. What is known is that it was written by the leader of the expedition: A brazilian Bandeirante (Pioneer), the explorers of the brazilian wilderness.

This sounded very familiar to me but from reading explorer's diaries.It finally came to me today.
Percy Fawcett was an explorer and surveyor of south America back in the late 19th/early 20th century.
He also read this document and got very excited about searching for this lost city.
From the ancient origins website;
In 1925, at the age of 58, explorer Percy Fawcett headed into the jungles of Brazil to find a mysterious lost city he called “Z”. He and his team would vanish without a trace and the story would turn out be one of the biggest news stories of his day. Despite countless rescue missions, Fawcett was never found.

Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett was born in England in 1867 and was a famous British explorer whose legendary adventures captivated the world. An officer in the Army and trained surveyor, Fawcett was the last of the famous territorial explorers ; men who ventured into blank spots on the map with little more than a machete and a compass. For years he would survive without contact in the wilderness and befriend tribes who had never before seen a white man.

In a letter to his son he wrote
“I expect the ruins to be monolithic in character, more ancient than the oldest Egyptian discoveries. Judging by inscriptions found in many parts of Brazil, the inhabitants used an alphabetical writing allied to many ancient European and Asian scripts. There are rumors, too, of a strange source of light in the buildings, a phenomenon that filled with terror the Indians who claimed to have seen it.
The central place I call “Z” — our main objective — is in a valley surmounted by lofty mountains. The valley is about ten miles wide, and the city is on an eminence in the middle of it, approached by a barreled roadway of stone. The houses are low and windowless, and there is a pyramidal temple. The inhabitants of the place are fairly numerous, they keep domestic animals, and they have well-developed mines in the surrounding hills. Not far away is a second town, but the people living in it are of an inferior order to those of “Z.” Farther to the south is another large city, half buried and completely destroyed.”
It's a fascinating story, you can read more at ancient-origins.net/unexplained-phenomena/lost-city-z-and-mysterious-disappearance-percy-fawcett
Incidentally,they since think they found his bones and a movie was made about him.

By "needle" (agulha), the author could have meant "obelisk". It is not something trivial for us native speakers of Portuguese, but this is ONE of the definitions that also show up in the dictionary. Also, I don't think it is close to "Chapada Diamantina", because he mentions "Rios Pará-oaçu, Uná" (two rivers, the first one being our current "Paraguaçú", which is really far from Chapada Diamantina).

In the 1970s, the military government decided to create a hydroelectric plant called Pedra do Cavalo (Horse Stone), which dams the waters of the Paraguaçu River, in 1985 it was ready and flooded a region where such a city could be ... who knows.

When this was posted many years ago, (over 10) on a site in Brazil run by a scientist, the symbols were different, and he furnished copies of the pages to show that they were. Do you think that there may be several versions of this out there? Also, have you seen the arguments between Cross and Gordon in regard to the Phoenician writing found in Brazil? This is the city that was called Z in some books.

Great post! The scripts reminds me a lot of Miꞌkmaq native American writing as well as magical sigils from grimoires and alchemical symbols. I had noticed a similarity between those before and now with this scipt, i'm intrigued.

Brazil has alot of "Tartarian" buildings also. Most of them have been destroyed already for example in sao paulo, the "New" center is on an avenue called "Avenida paulista" the road used to be full of old out of place mansions.





Some small ones remain, they even made a famous mcdonalds in one of them . named it "mequi" which is how some brazilians pronouce mcdonalds lol.



In Rio, thier is an avenue called "Avenida rio de janiero" which used to be called "Aveinda central". Also detroyed most of "Tartarian" buildings on it.




Rio also used to have a "White city" city or "World Expo" as they liked to call it. also destroyed.





Lastly I find this building in sao paulo very interesting, The "Martinelli" building, brazils first skyscrapers if I remember correctly. Looks like one of those New york skyscrapers

Hello, and welcome to my first thread in this forum. Excuse my incapability of decent formatting, I usually lurk forums, having never posted on one.
Do not let this discourage you, as the topic at hand is very interesting.

Today, I shall introduce you to the story of Manuscript 512 of the National Library of Brazil. Originally titled:
("Historical relation of an occult, large, very old settlement with no inhabitants, that was found in the year 1753").
"Relação histórica de huma oculta, e grande Povoação, antiguissima sem moradores, que se descubrio no anno de 1753"

Peaked your interest already? Come along then, it gets better.


The first page of the manuscript.

This document was casually found at the library's collection some 86 years after it was written, in the year 1839.
It was then submitted to more careful appraisal by the Historical and Geographical Institute of Brazil, and it was subsequently published in its entirety on the Intitute's magazine. The document consists of 10 pages, some with graphical depictions of found texts.
The author is unknown. There are many theories as to who the autor might be, but I suppose they are irrelevant. What is known is that it was written by the leader of the expedition: A brazilian Bandeirante (Pioneer), the explorers of the brazilian wilderness.

Now, on to the contents of the document itself.
All relevant information will be translated to english and commented upon. Mind you this is all written in archaic portuguese, so a 1:1 translation is impossible.
Also bear in mind that certain parts of the text are lost, as you can see on the image above. This is indicated by [...]
Some content might be irrelevant to ancient lost history discussion, I shall skip these with (etc), and generally simplify the text greatly to avoid lengthy descriptions.
The author is very descriptive, at times poetic. So I shortened it as much as I could, still keeping context.


These are the very first lines, mostly lost to time.
///
"In america […]
In the countryside […]
Along the […]
Field master […]
and his company. Having ten years been travelling through the outback, attempting to find the silver mines of the great discoveror Moribeca (etc) "
///


After the introduction, he relates the finding of a mountain.
///
"After a long and untimely journey, incited by the greed of gold, almost lost for many years in this vast outback, we have discovered a mountainous range so tall, it seemed to reach high into the ether. (etc). A glow from farther away could be admired, mainly when the sun shone upon the crystal of which the mountain was made, creating such a woundrous sight none dared to look away. (etc, lots of poetic descriptions of the mountain) We decided to investigate that admirable prodigy of nature, having arrived at the feet of the mountains, with no hardship on our way. However, circling the mountain range, we found no easy path to commit to these brazilian alps, resulting in an inexplicable sadness upon us."
///


They finally find a way through.
///
"Cramped as we were, with the intent to fall back the next day, it happened that a slave, walking afoot(etc) discovered a path through the mountains, that seemed cut, as if by device (human endeavor), and not by nature. (etc) we started to climb, finding many loose rocks, by which we judged to be a road undone by time.
(lengthy description of the climb)
We spotted spotted a great settlement, thinking it to be some brazilian city. We climbed down the valley (etc).
///


Some of the following part is lost, and I will skip most of it. By context, assume they sent a few scouts to this city.
This is where things get interesting.
///
"We have been waiting two days for the scouts (etc) until they arrived, telling us no inhabitants were found. This confused all of us. (etc) Then an indian of our company decided to check it for himself. He returned haunted, having discovered no trace of any person whatsoever. This made us even more confused, and we did not believe this for we had seen houses(etc). We then decided all of us would enter this settlement bearing arms in the dead of night (etc) we found no way in but the main road of the settlement, whose entrance has three arches of great height, the middle one the tallest, and the two on the side smaller: over the great, main arch, we saw letters, that could not be copied due to the great height (of the arch). Then a road, wide as the arches, with two-story houses in both sides, with their boundaries of carved stone, ruined by time."
///

The archway he describes looks suspiciously like that kind of architecture we know and love.
This image is of a supposed roman arch in Algeria. Posted here for comparative purposes.

Moving on...

///
[...] "Noting by the regularity, and simmetry in which they were made, it all seems like one single building, in reality, they are many. Some with their terraces uncovered. They are without roof tiles, because the roofs are made of re-burnt tile(?), and others of slab. We ran with much fright through some houses, and in none we found implements, or furniture. (etc) the houses are domed, in a manner which the voices of those who spoke would echo inside frighteningly."
///

Two-story, domed houses you say?
More and more, this discovery seems to hint at what we call "Classical" architecture. Only it is found in the middle of the brazilian wilds, abandoned.
For me, this reeks of remnants of what we identify as a global civilization wiped in the last reset.

There is more, in case you were wondering. I will be skipping some unimportant parts, and focus on the juicy stuff.

///
Passing those houses (etc) we found ourselves in a regular square, and in the middle of it was a column of black stone, of extraordinary greatness. Above it, was a statue of a regular man, with one hand on his left side, and his right arm stretched, pointing with his index towards North. In each side of the aforementioned square is a needle(?) mimicking the ones which the romans used. Some of them were broken, as if damaged by some lightning bolts(?) (adapting language context in this, since it is written in archaic portuguese, perhaps he really meant "very damaged") By the right side of this square is a lofty building, looking like the main home of some lord of the land, with a great hall on the entrance. And still afraid we did not go through all houses, being them so many, and the [...] form some [...] found a [...] of extraordinary mass [...] people found great difficult to lift it."
///

Sadly, the most interesting part has been lost to time. Apparently they found some object of a great mass they could not lift. I wonder what it is.
Also, I do not understand what he meant by "needles (...) which the romans used."

Perhaps he meant these lines on the ground, or even obelisks, commonly found in roman squares.

Continuing... Now we get to the meat of it, that links the story with the mudflood.

///
"The bats were many, that charged on our faces (lol) (etc) Over the portico of the main road is a figure of half-relief, carved of the same rock and naked from the waist above, crowned in a laurel wreath: It is a young person, beardless, with a band and a skirt across the waist. Under the shield of such figure are some letters consumed by time. We have recognized the following script: View attachment 98.
On the left part of said square is another building, totally ruined. And by the vestiges it seems to have been a temple, as it still has most of its frontpiece(etc), and in its ruined walls, we see great works with some figures, and portraits carved in stone with crosses of various shapes, ravens, and other minute details we could not appreciate in time. Following such building is a great part of the settlement, all ruined and buried in great and frightening openings on the earth. Without there being in this whole circumference herbs, trees or plants made by nature, but piles of stone, some blunt others carved, for what we understand the borders of [...]version, because still between [...] like of dead bodies, that [...] and part of this unhappy [...] of, and helpless [...] maybe by some earthquake."
///

So, after finding some strange, greek-like script, and a temple, our intrepid adventurers find a buried section of the city, uncovered by vegetation (as if covered by mud/earth), filled with piles of stone, and they theorize about an earthquake. Mind you, the part about dead bodies seems by context to be a comparison with something, not that they found bodies per se. This fits so well into the whole mudflood theory, I feel myself blushing.

I will now skip a whole page mostly, because after this, he mentions a river in front of the square, and they go down it for three days, mostly describing vegetation, apparently rice fields(?) wildlife, and hopes of finding gold. Also ducks they could kill with their bare hands, due to lack of bullets.

Afterwards, they find a waterfall and some caves, and suddenly...

///
"After going east from such waterfall, we found many caves (etc) we also found some loose rocks on the surface, with silver, as if taken out of the mines, left over to time.
Between these caves we saw a covering with a great slab, and the following words worked on the stone View attachment 103, that imply a great mystery as what seems to be[...] over the portico of the temple, we saw others of this form: View attachment 104.
Away from the settlement, a cannon-shot away, is a building, like a field-house, which you enter by a large doorway, by a staircase of many colors, (etc)."
///

More cryptic scripts...

I will resume the last couple of pages:
Basically, the author marvels at the greatness of this ancient populace, and at the riches of the land they once inhabited.
Then, they finally find gold in a house (yay), and describe a coin: " of one part with an image or figure of a young man on his knees, and the other side of the coin a cow, a crown, and an arrow."

Then another script. View attachment 105

Relevant to the topic of lost history, that's pretty much it. I hope you enjoyed this read, feel free to add in the comments if you reconize any of the scripts, or any other useful info.

On the coin they found, is the image of a lad, a BOW(not cow) a crown, and an arrow.
Is it just me, or do these symbols look a little like the planet symbols? Maybe the descending lines on the moon symbol mean days, or months or years.

Rio de Janeiro was the capital of Imperial Brazil and São Paulo has always been one of the most important and developed cities in the country. I'm pretty sure we can find these kinds of buildings in other major cities here, or at least could find them before the 20th century. The question is: were those buildings here before? Those buildings never matched reality in Brazil, however, the elites like it fancy.

All in all, everything's been distorted here and little is known, just like everywhere else in the world.
