Ancient Megalithic Temple Discovered Underwater

Discovery off the island of Malta linked to Noah's Flood?

An archaeological discovery with far-reaching implications was announced in Augsburg, Germany, by Dr. Hubert Zeitlmair, a German real estate investor and part-time archaeologist, at a meeting of the Paleo Astronaut Society on August 18, 1999.  (October 31, 1999, Il-Mument newspaper publishes article about discovery.)

The discovery off the coast of Malta, a rocky island situated in the Mediterranean Sea between the tip of Italy and the coast of Africa, had posed an archaeological enigma since the unearthing, earlier this century, of a series of megalithic structures older than any other in Europe. According to some studies the "temples" above ground may be as old as 3500 B.C.

The discovery of one more such "temple'" under water poses an even larger puzzle and may indicate a much, much earlier date for these complex and large structures, built with gigantic stones and aligned with the solstices, equinoxes or both.

Dr. Zeitlmair's search was inspired by the writings of Zecharia Sitchin in his The Earth Chronicles series about the origin and extreme antiquity of ancient civilizations, nd especially his book When Time Began in which he attributed the world's megalithic structures to Divine Architects. Based on these writings and because the known above-ground temples on Malta and its sister-island Gozo are built in pairs, Dr. Zeitlmair concluded that there ought to be one more undiscovered such structure; that it might be by now off the coast and underwater occurred to him almost three years ago.

The final impetus to start a series of underwater searches was given to Dr. Zeitlmair during a visit to MaIta by Zecharia Sitchin, with a group of fans, this past June.

The final dive that led to the discovery took place on July 13, 1999 at 10:00 AM; and subsequent dives and underwater photography confirmed the nature and megalithic size of the structures.
