[URU-The Lost Civilisation of Australia]
[URU-The Lost Civilisation of Australia]
The megalithic standing stones, temples and stone heads of the Gods of Uru, stand scattered across the timeless Australian landscape, guarding an hitherto lost past about to be revealed. The Lost Civilisation of Uru is THE great mystery of our ancient past. The Gods of Uru once more rise from the earth to demand renewed worship. Aea, Nim, Nif, Ara, I-na, Ga-na, Ura, Aru and many more. Reader, I present to you the Uru.
Meeting my wife Heather in 1972 we became a ‘team’ determined to locate, map, measure and photograph every megalithic site we could find. Learning of mystery stone arrangements found in widely scattered areas of central western NSW, in 1974 we began extensive field investigations thereabouts that continue to the present day. The first of these sites, located in the Bathurst district, confirmed my theory that Australia was once the home of an advanced, megalithic civilisation.
[Script Deveolpment Phases]
In the course of many years research, I have studied the evolution of the Uruan written language, from its gradual development from their primitive rock art into a crude picture-writing [ie pictographic script], identifying eight major phases in the development of this ‘mother’ script and calculated the approximate time periods of each. Although subject to possible change should future archaeological discoveries require it, I believe the time periods given are as accurate as possible, based upon my current knowledge. The script phases and their individual [approximate] time periods are as follows.
We shall follow this remarkable people through time as they evolved their mighty megalithic culture with its associated advanced astronomical and agricultural science, which also aided them in their maritime expeditions beyond Australia. Among other revelations certain to surprise many readers is their development of a written script many thousands of years before the rise of Sumer, where writing was traditionally invented around the 15th century BC; and that the Uru invented the first crude gliders and hot air balloons with which they took to the air, giving birth to the original ‘Birdman’ cult, which they would in time spread beyond Australia.
It may be difficult for many fellow amateur researchers of our ancient past to accept the proposition that Australia was once the home of an advanced stone-age civilisation, the ‘mother’ civilisation itself. The time has come to stop the ‘cultural cringe’ to other lands and investigate the limitless mysteries to be found right here in our own country. With the publication of “Mysterious Australia”, “Pyramids in the Pacific”, “Giants From the Dreamtime - the Yowie in Myth and Reality”, “Australian UFOs - Through the Window of Time” and now “Uru, the Lost Civilisation of Australia” I have, I believe, done much to correct this imbalance.

From the mass of collected archaeological evidence Australia-wide there can be little doubt that the Uru developed a highly-advanced stone-age megalithic ‘super civilisation’; a world power that once spread out across the earth to eventually influence the rise of the later civilisations of the ancient world. They also developed a highly-organised religion and a pantheon of deities that in some cases would survive under different names into later civilisations.
[Stone Age Civilisation]
The civilisation of which I speak arose not in the Atlantic or Central Pacific Oceans, but right here in Australia; the ‘lost’ civilisation of Uru. I will show that it was a highly advanced Stone Age civilisation, whose builders have left, scattered across the continent, their extensive alignments of standing stones, stone circles, and other fantastic remains of their advanced astronomical science; as well as temples, tombs and other monuments, often constructed of huge monolithic stones, the method of whose erection remains a mystery lost in time.
It must seem incredible to many people that non-metallurgic civilisation in stone-age times was possible, particularly in Australia. Yet it was, and it happened. Critics should consider the statement of Lewis Spence [1874-1945], the great Scottish Atlantis researcher and historian:
“That a race works in stone or bone, and is ignorant of metals, does not signify that
it is destitute of civilisation.
Yet, as I have already demonstrated in my three previous books, “Mysterious Australia”, “Pyramids in the Pacific” and “Giants From the Dreamtime” this continent is a virtual treasure house of relics of our ‘unknown’ ancient past. From the mass of collected archaeological evidence Australia-wide there can be little doubt that the Uru developed a highly-advanced stone-age megalithic ‘super civilisation’; a world power that once spread out across the earth to eventually influence the rise of the later civilisations of the ancient world. They also developed a highly-organised religion and a pantheon of deities that in some cases would survive under different names into later civilisations.
[Australian Aboriginal Myth and Legend]
Australian Aboriginal myth and legend speaks of a race of ‘culture-heroes’ that inhabited the land before them in the long-ago ‘Dreamtime’, and who had passed on much of their culture to the Aborigines. These ‘culture-heroes’ are variously described as being pale or white-skinned; that they shaped many natural geological features, and erected many, often truly monolithic rock formations, and worshipped the Sun, Moon and Stars.
They gave the Aborigines laws and passed on elements of their religion, such as Sun, Earth-Mother and Sky-Father worship, and other aspects of their ceremonial life. They taught the Aboriginal warriors the use of the woomera in spear throwing and the manufacture of the boomerang. These traditions convinced me, over forty years ago, that an advanced megalithic monument-building people had inhabited Australia.
Yet, when I published my theory in the press, I was immediately attacked by establishment archaeologists and historians, with the familiar cries of ‘impossible’ and that I was wasting my time and money, searching for something that was nothing more than an Aboriginal myth! Nevertheless, my theory led me on a search which culminated, one January day in 1965, while exploring dense scrubland overlooking a Blue Mountains valley, in the discovery of an extensive culture centre of crumbling sandstone mounds, altar stones in the forms of serpent and eagle motifs, and other structures.
