There’s a remote prehistoric site, on a desolate plane in the Egyptian Sahara desert, west of Aswan called Nabta Playa.

From The Origin Map by Thomas G Brophy, Ph.D (Interview with author here). Trophy has a Ph.D in physics (has worked with the NASA Voyager Project, The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, and the Japanese Space Programs)

Asserts three new concepts:

1 – Maps and markers denoting objects, alignments and events that can be observed in the sky with the unaided eye.

2 – Markers indicating celestial phenomena and events that cannot be observed with the unaided eye.

3 – Detailed astronomical and cosmological information, such as distance to stars, speeds at which stars are moving away from us, the structure of our galaxy and information on the origin of the universe, which we have either only just discovered in modern times, or possibly information (for example, concerning planetary systems around stars) that we do not even have available at the moment. (He dates the sites use to 26,000 BCE)

Myth became the synapse by which science was transmitted. Their truly original thesis challenges basic assumptions of Western science and theories about the transmission of knowledge)
