The Serpent Altar

In the course of my researches over many years, I had observed that the ancient myths and legends of our Aboriginal people speak of a race of ‘culture-heroes’ who inhabited the land in the long-ago ‘Dreamtime’, and 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 taught the Aboriginal warriors the manufacture of the boomerang and the use of the woomera in spear-throwing.

Yet, when I published my theory in the press, I was immediately attacked by establishment archaeologists and historians, with cries of ‘impossible’ and that I was wasting my time 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 carved in the forms of Serpent and Eagle motifs, and other mystery structures. One, obvious ceremonial structure was a tree-covered 15m tall mound composed of sandstone boulders and rubble. On its western side stone slab steps led to the summit, where I found, upon a flat base, facing east, a large altar stone whose flat top had been carved in the form of a serpent. carved in the form of
