Millions of pounds of pure raw copper from Michigan's upper peninsula and Isle Royale was extensively mined  in the time period between 3000 BC and 1200 BC. This very copper is responsible
for the Copper and Bronze Age cultures during that time. And when the mining operations ceased , so ended These Great Ages!

How far back the history of this area goes, is not known, but we can take it back to at least  3000 BC . During that era the site was called  'TYRANENA' .  It seems that Tyranena was one of the
bases of operation for the early miners and traders of the Copper mined in Michigans Upper  Penisula. From TYRANENA , the traders traveled down the Rock River to the Mississippi  then on
down to the Gulf of Mexico . From there it was loaded and shipped across the sea. We suspect much of this copper and raw material gathered during the latter part of their time here, went for
the construction of King Solomons Temple.

Note: Lake Mills  acknowledged the ancient existence of Tyranena and its people by setting aside some land for a park and naming it ' TYRANENA PARK '.
The Park is located  on the north end of Rock Lake. The quiet  wooded trails lead you through ancient glacial drumlin kettles and beautiful views of Rock Lake.


3113 B.C - 2012 A.D. According to the Mayans, our present great cycle (3113 B.C. - 2012 A.D.) is called the Age of  the Fifth Sun. This time period is ruled by 4 Earth. This Fith Age e is
the synthesis of the previous four.
(See Ancient Earth Maps)

3000 B.C. Operations began at Rock Lake, known then as TYRANENA

1200 B.C'
Mining operations ceased and the  TYRANENIANS  left the area.  Before leaving they flooded the site , leaving a lake to protect their dead left behind.

900 A.D.
From the Yucatan and surrounding areas, up the Mississippi and to southern Illinois, Mayan miners , astronomer-priests came. They established  the pyramid city of 'Cahokia" as the center for
their intercontinental copper trade.  They established their point camp in the same area as the 'TYRANENIANS' .  This settlement was named   'AZTALAN' -and was a smaller version of Cahokia.

1300 A.D.
The people of Aztalan leave, along with the rest of the populaton of other mound cities.
Although modern times, claims that Tyranena means 'sparkling waters' this name is very ancient and goes back to the Phoenicians and the Temple of Jerusalem through Tyre and Solomon.
Following is some Tyre trivia.

TYRE, PHOENICIA (Sour or Sur, 4th largest city of Lebanon.) It was an island in ages past. Herodotus visited Tyre during the 5th century BC and described the famous Temple of Melkart
(Heracles). Priests told him that the temple was built when Tyre was founded, 2750 BC.

. It was not until 1000 BC that the city experienced its golden age. In the 10th century BC, Hiram, king of Tyre, joined two islets by landfill. Later he extended the city further by reclaiming a
considerable area from the sea.
Eventually its colonies spread around the Mediterranean and Atlantic, bringing to the city a flourishing maritime trade.
Tyre also attracted the attention of jealous conquerors, among them Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar and Alexander the Great. Early in the 6th century BC, Nebuchadnezzar laid siege to the
walled city for thirteen years. Tyre stood firm, but it was probable that the residents of the mainland city abandoned it for the safety of the island.
Greeks attributed introduction of the alphabet to their country by CADMUS, son of a Tyrian king. The name of the continent is said to come from Europa, the sister of Cadmus.

It was Tyre's purple-dyed textiles, worn throughout the ancient world as a mark of royal rank, that brought fame and fortune to the city. One gram of pure purple dye was worth ten or twenty
grams of gold, so it is not surprising that some of the beautiful sarcophagi of the necropolis belonged to wealthy purple dye manufactures of Tyre. Tyrians extracted dye from Murex, a marine
snail that still lives along Tyre's shores deep among the rocks and sunken archeological remains. Dye extraction is no longer a viable commercial venture, but scientists have documented the
process for historical purposes. Sarafand (north of Tyre) is ancient Serepta (bible.) Excavations here revealed the remains of Canaanite-Phoenician structures and Roman port installations.
Sarafand still has a workshop where the ancient Phoenician art glass blowing is practiced.

On the road to Qana El-Jaleel, is a burial monument from the Persian period (550 - 330 BC.) This has traditionally been called the tomb of Hiram, Phoenician architect of the Temple of Jerusalem

DaniEL in the Lions Den  and  the Story of Bel the Dragon Slayer is a good example how people were tricked by the church and
priesthoods.  And Sometimes even the priests fell to their own tricks.

Following is the story of Baal and how it is remembered  in the Biblical tale of Bel and the Dragon:

1: When King Astyages was laid with his fathers, Cyrus the Persian received his kingdom.
2: And Daniel was a companion of the king, and was the most honored of his friends.
Now the Babylonians had an idol called Bel, and every day they spent on it twelve bushels of fine flour and forty sheep and fifty gallons of wine.
4: The king revered it and went every day to worship it. But Daniel worshiped his own God.
5: And the king said to him, "Why do you not worship Bel?" He answered, "Because I do not revere man-made idols, but the living God, who created heaven and earth and has dominion over all
: The king said to him, "Do you not think that Bel is a living God? Do you not see how much he eats and drinks every day?"
7: Then Daniel laughed, and said, "Do not be deceived, O king; for this is but clay inside and brass outside, and it never ate or drank anything."
8: Then the king was angry, and he called his priests and said to them, "If you do not tell me who is eating these provisions, you shall die.
9: But if you prove that Bel is eating them, Daniel shall die, because he blasphemed against Bel." And Daniel said to the king, "Let it be done as you have said."
10: Now there were seventy priests of Bel, besides their wives and children. And the king went with Daniel into the temple of Bel.
11: And the priests of Bel said, "Behold, we are going outside; you yourself, O king, shall set forth the food and mix and place the wine, and shut the door and seal it with your signet.
12: And when you return in the morning, if you do not find that Bel has eaten it all, we will die; or else Daniel will, who is telling lies about us."
13: They were unconcerned, for beneath the table they had made a hidden entrance, through which they used to go in regularly and consume the provisions.
14: When they had gone out, the king set forth the food for Bel. Then Daniel ordered his servants to bring ashes and they sifted them throughout the whole temple in the presence of the king
alone. Then they went out, shut the door and sealed it with the king's signet, and departed.
15: In the night the priests came with their wives and children, as they were accustomed to do, and ate and drank everything.
16: Early in the morning the king rose and came, and Daniel with him.
17: And the king said, "Are the seals unbroken, Daniel?" He answered, "They are unbroken, O king."
18: As soon as the doors were opened, the king looked at the table, and shouted in a loud voice, "You are great, O Bel; and with you there is no deceit, none at all."
19: Then Daniel laughed, and restrained the king from going in, and said, "Look at the floor, and notice whose footsteps these are."
20: The king said, "I see the footsteps of men and women and children."
21: Then the king was enraged, and he seized the priests and their wives and children; and they showed him the secret doors through which they were accustomed to enter and devour what was
on the table.
22: Therefore the king put them to death, and gave Bel over to Daniel, who destroyed it and its temple.

“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“  Frank
Joseph .
Joseph was nominated by Japan's Savant Society as
Professor of World Archaeology. He was editor-in-chief of
Ancient American Magazine from 1993 to 2007 and has
traveled the world collecting research materials for his
twenty-seven published books.
"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
anomalous phenomena."
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."
