Links, AAPS Slide Show, Franey letter to J. Johndon, future AWS field trips
- Anyone who wants easy reference to any of the Slide Shows below that I am sending here (or anything else of interest to you), please place them in our Files, labeled w/credits. Thanks, Marti for adding 2 New Links:The Lost Pyramids Of Caral Video about Caral and discussion on why people formed civilizations http://www.mazalien.com/the-lost-pyramids-of-caral.html andHere is, in part, are letters from AAPS Sec. Judy Johnson. The first includes a link to their newsletter and few AAPS Slide Shows from the September, '09 Conference. These seem to me to exemplify some of the fine outreach efforts and "free" worldwide 'home schooling' tools available now as the winds of paradigm changes bring floods of new learning and teaching opportunities affordable and accessible to all who can get computer access, translations, printouts....Fitting here, Slideshows in Judy's e-newsletter(s) include retired airline pilot/sailor, Jeff Bennett's Oceans, Bob Wheeler Petroglyph Conservancy, and Lee Pennington's slides on Roman Coins found along the Oho River Near Louisville, KY. Lee's program references a photo of Dr. Jim Scherz' 1994 resport (available @ Ancient American): "Fred Kingman's Roman-Style Coins Found Along the Wisconsin River in the 1970's" . So many teachings are coming from cooperative groups such as AAPS, Atlantic Conference, AWS, Midwestern Epigraphic, NEARA and so many more, and I am not even surprised anymore when I see names of so many members and regular viewers of our Ancient Waterways group in these interassociative networks of people and groups. The sharing of letters/posts within many of these noncompetitive groups....slides, reports, VideoClips and documentaries coming from these associations make excellenet reference. They present endless collaborative opportunities and teaching tools on early historic and ancient intra- and inter-continental navigation, trade, diffusion of culture, DNA, etc thorughout the world.(10/07/09, from Judy Johnson) ...OK folks, I have put some shows up on SlideShare.comIt's the site used by Rick Osmon too, so look him up as well. You can upload slide shows, photos, pages, all without sound.If you lose these links you can look under "AAPS Ancient Artifact Preservation Society" or Judy M JohnsonThis will be advantagous to we who saw the programs and want to review them, and especially for you folks who could not make the conference and want to see a bit of what went on there.AAPS August Newsletter: http://www.slideshare.net/JudyMJohnson/aaps-news-august09-pdfBob Wheeler Petroglyph conservancy http://www.slideshare.net/JudyMJohnson/wheeler-petroglyphs-conf09Forest Lake Circle Mounds by Judy http://www.slideshare.net/JudyMJohnson/forest-lake-circle-moundsOceans by Jeff Bennett http://www.slideshare.net/JudyMJohnson/oceans-by-jeff-bennettRoman Coins found on Ohio River by Lee Pennington http://www.slideshare.net/JudyMJohnson/19-r-o-m-a-n-c-o-i-n-s-f-o-u-n-d-a-l-o-n-g-t-h-e-o-h-i-o-r-i-v-e-rHoenke Perspective- Musings on Dark Ages, Climates and Connectedness http://www.slideshare.net/JudyMJohnson/time-travel-by-karl-hoenke ...MacIntosh Rock http://www.slideshare.net/JudyMJohnson/mac-intosh-rockIf you click the little "slide screen" in the bottom right of the show, it will go FULL SCREEN so you can easily see them.EnJoy!Love, JudyPlease note dates of conf. 2010 and put on your calendar[:]* 6th Annual AAPS Conference on Ancient America

Letter to Judy Johnson/AAPS w/Update from Dr. Brenda Franey, who, some of you may recall was booked with geolgoist Dr. Robert Schoch at Eagle Lodge Resort on Lake Superior (May '08) for the informal Ancient Waterways Society 'pot luck' weekend which many of you attended. The event centered around the Pennington/ JoLe Productions filming of an upcoming documentary in the Copper Country. Boston University gradution conflicts arose where Schoch and Franey had to cancel their cabin reservations at the last minute. They still need 'core copper samples' and perhaps if they and the Penningtons don't mind a small crowd again, perhaps another similar event will come up again. Any AWS event we have, most I have heard from here prefer we keep costs rock bottom where folks can share meals, campfires, meet in pristine settings where it seems easier to enjoy warm comaraderie with each other and best attune to ancient wisdom. Than it is to gather expensively and impersonally amongst commercial/urban sprawl. At least for informal gatherings and field trips; formal conferences are a different matter.
Here is an update to AAPS secretary from Dr. Brenda Franey, and I am adding a link called TimeTrackers, of which she is affiliated: http://timetrackers.grifco.be/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=25&Itemid=74From: BrendaSent: Wednesday, September 23, 2009 11:30 AMSubject: RE: Details for Conference 09Dear Judy,
Thank you for your updates.
I'm with you at the conference in spirit, but getting paperwork into the Welsh government in time to do excavations this year takes precedence.
I did see the Kensington Stone program; very exciting and kudos to Scot for his fine work. I believe he represents the kind of work we can do with likeminded researchers at the conference.
I do look forward to directly participating soon with you all.
There is much exciting work to report with vitrified forts, the "Red Prince" I found at the Smithsonian, etc. He was found in the adjacent mound to the Bat Creek mound and some of the artifacts that had been attributed to the Bat Creek mound were actually in the Red Prince's mound. They are dated to around the 5th C AD. One of the sites we hope to soon excavate may contain some contemporary burials to compare to.
We're analyzing rocks from some UK vitrified forts for meteor event markers. Firestone's group is helping with that:
Firestone, Richard, Allen West, and Simon Warwick-Smith. The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes. Rochester, VT: Bear & Company, 2006.
It so happens that when I was working with George McMullen (now dead) and we were in the UK, we traveled some with Niven Sinclair and told him about the Knight's Templar's travels to the west from Nova Scotia. (Ashley is a very nice person.) George did much work with the Templar's; the Kensington Stone info fits right in. Also the UP ancient copper mines. I filmed George talking about this at some sites.
I have met with Dr. Shelley Wachsmann at Texas A & M (thanks to Zena' suggestion!), and his work with the ships in the Bronze Age Levant may be useful to apply my copper isotope analysis idea to. The chairman of his department also expressed interest in being involved with the International Field School which is part of the TIME TRACKERS project in Wales.
Well, must get back to work or nothing will happen.
