Relics of Mu

One of the criticisms of James Churchward's theories about the Lost Continent of Mu is that he provided no physical evidence of the daily lives of the people of Mu. Archaeologists and researchers use the recovered debris of people's everyday life to piece together their understanding of how they lived and attempt to place them into a chronological context. From this we can learn about our advancement as a species. While it is true that most experts agree that the Bronze Age began in the 4th millennium in what is now known as Iraq and Iran, some evidence has arisen placing it in Thailand in the 5th millennium BC, James's theories were about an advanced civilization.

One ancient relic of Mu depicted in the 1931 "Lost Continent of Mu" was described as

A Relic from Mu
"This is believed to be the oldest jar ever uncovered. It is made of bronze, inlaid with gold symbols, and was taken from one of Mu's submerged cities. It is estimated to be over 12,500 years old."
This is certain to be evidence of an advanced civilization if it can be shown to be true. Well, after more than seventy-five years one mystery can be resolved.

Here are pictures of four metal vessels identified by James Churchward as relics of Mu. One is the same jar as depicted in the 1931 Lost Continent of Mu, with a close-up of the inscription that is so difficult to see in the older picture.

Included in one of the vessels is a typewritten note which says:
"The little vase from Mu, taken from the ruins of Hiranapoora, one of the sacred cities of Mu which now lies about seventy feet below the surface of the waters. it is one of twelve pieces recovered. Without question it was a temple piece for what purpose it was used I do not know. On the inside of the mouth there is an inscription written in one of the most ancient writings Henefert as it was called at Benares which really is Uigher Carien. It commences with Mu, the rest can not be read on account of caoral formations. The metal is unknown but it must be compositions of gold, two different colors. Any other combination of metals would have soon gone to pieces in salt water through galvanic action."
One of the vessels has been examined by a curator at the British Museum and identified as late 18th to early 19th century from India. After looking at photographs of the other vessels, it appears that they are all from the same period. Another expert examined the inscription and pronounced that it was mostly likely a proper name - the owner of the jar.

While this certainly casts a shadow on James' theories, it isn't the final word. With the revelation that items exist in private collections, it opens the door to further opportunities of discovery. If you or someone you know has in his/her collection or knows of any ancient relics of Mu, we want to know about it. While I am not promising analysis by the British Museum, we will conduct a fair and aboveboard examination in the hopes of finding the real thing.

Thanks for tuning in and have a great day!
