Heatherlee, Tim Hooker: The Aratta Civilization, Older Than Sumeria

YT description: Several locations have been suggested as probable idenfications of Aratta, now, there is firm evidence that it was in the region of modern Ukraine, north of the Black Sea and Sea of Azov.

While many Western texts still refer to Sumer as being the oldest civilisation with writing, Ukraine has something far older. This was Aratta, recorded in the Sumerian epic tale Enmerkar and the Land of Aratta. This was the cradle of civilisation and Kamyana Mohyla was its most significant sanctuary. This is a very special place. It is the oldest known sanctuary-observatory in the world.

Aratta is now recognised as having been the world’s most ancient (known) civilisation. It developed in the steppes north of the Black Sea (in modern Ukraine) long before the Sumerian civilisation originated, and from there it radiated its culture into India, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Western China and across Europe. Relics of Aratta are increasingly identified in Ukraine.

Heatherlee, Tim Hooker: Aratta, A Civilization Older Than Sumeria – (2009) 4 stars

Run time: 1 hour, 7 minutes. A couple of quick points I’m jotting down as my notes. Aratta contains proto-Sumerian writing, where references to the goddess Inanna and other Sumerian concepts have been found. Also, the burial pictographs of Aratta have many parallels to Vedic Indian burial mounds.

At 38 minutes in, the speaker mentions that Aratta’s cities were periodically burned. In other research, Gerald Clark theorized that Sumerians would destroy entire cities if the inhabitants grew too rebellious, or if whatever resource they were mining was depleted and a new mining site was established elsewhere. For whatever reasons, Sumerian gods did not want empty cities left behind, so they razed them. Is this why Turkey’s Gobekli Tepe was abandoned and completely buried before the last Ice Age?

40:00 – The most prevalent symbols in Aratta were the Yin Yang and the Swastika. We know that Buddhism first began in India, and the Swastika is an Indian symbol, so there is a huge connection there.

The second speaker tosses a lot of metaphysical concepts at the end of this program, including Electric Universe Theory, Nibiru / Planet X idea and Indian spirituality. These may be interesting concepts, but as far as what I saw, there is no solid link between them and what was shown about Aratta. This paints Aratta more like Atlantis, which may be true or not, but it hasn’t been proven either way.
