Top photo is of   anomalous skulls found by  Mr. Connolly in a South American Museum. The general opinion seems to be that they  are not the result of medical deformation and are too
anomalous to be the result of "binding" techniques. In addition, some of the skulls have brain vault capacities significantly in excess of modern man.For more information on skulls please go to


Skulls found in the mounds of Wisconsin are orthocephaic, while the Native American Indian skull is  brachycephalic. Showing that these people were not of the Native American Indian Tribes -
however through crossbreeding the Native Americans could today carry some of the traits of these people.


During the excation of Frank Joseph, he found that the stone caps of the pyramids were broken off.
The YUCHI tribe had an explanation to this in their oral tradition.  The caps were removed or intentionally destroyed for ritual reason before the inhabitants left, to deconsecrate the sacred precinct
and to prevent desecration by non believer.
However this reminds me of our American Dollar - as it shows the stone cap there seperated from the main frame of the pyramids.
Is this to mean that when these particular people come back, the stone caps will once again be placed on the pyramids?  And what power does these caps lend to the pyramid.


A strange artifact was found in one of the pyramids - a bright red stone with strong hues of brilliant orange running through it, giving it a flame like quality .  It was found to be HIXTONITE, a trace
mineral containing elements of copper responsible for its fiery glow.
Outside of occasional deposits around Lake Erie and in Minnesota, the nearest source for the mineral is known to be HIXTON, WI, over 100 miles away. It would have had to have been imported to
get to this area. The hixtonite was found to have been manufactured for religious ornaments, sacred arrowheads and ritual drill bits. It was thought to be a stone of spiritual powrs and regarded as
holy. It was exported throughout the Midwest, down south as far the Gulf Coast.


Evidence shows us that the pyramids of Rock Lake and the buildings at Aztalan were covered by a cement or plaster like substance, giving the exterior a smooth coating.  This same coating was
found at the city of Cahokia and in southern Indiana, Angel Mounds.
Sixty five miles northeast of Angel Mounds lie the Wyandotte Caves, where hundreds of tons of dry limestone were mined by these ancient miners. The material was used in the production of a
white plaster.
The Salts Cave, which is part of the Kentucky Mammoth Cave Park, was also mined ancienty for gypsum, a white plaster known to have been then manufactured.  Contrary to believe, the human
remains found in the caves shows that these people were not of the hunter gatherer culture but someone entirely different. Preserved human fecal droppings in the cave reveal to us that the
original inhabitans ate cultivated foods identical to the specialized crops harvested by the original inhabitants of Aztlan.  These people were of large stature with red and blonde hair.

The Native American Tribes revered these ancient  as powerful sorcerers. As told through Tribal Legend, ceremonies wre always at night, when the moon and stars were worshippped as gods. The
ancient shamans were known to have 'WALKED ON WATER'...(sound familiar?). with lit torches being carried in front of them in both hands. Could they really walk on water? In a sense yes - but
there was no magic to it. It was trickery to impress the watchers. A stone causeway had been carefully laid just underneath the surface of the water of which the priests carefully walked. It was
forbidden for any other to be near the lake , so observers would have never known about the hidden rock causeway under the surface of the water.  The Pyramid at Rock Lake is thought to be by
the Native Americans as the TEMPLE OF THE  MOON GODDESS, which would account for the night ceremonies.  Would this ceremony  be sacriligious according to modern day beliefs. If it was,
then we have to question the believes of the largest church in modern times....The Roman Catholic Church  and their believe in the Goddess Diana .


Your image stands out in the lake. In your left hand you hold the torch of enlightenment. Its flame flickers over the black wters like oil a fire. With your right yhand you clasp the bow, yet a doe seeks
shelter at your side. I understand and vernerate your mystery, Protectress of Animals, Mistress of the Hunt. From your fair face you gaze down compassionately into the depths. You behold all their
secrets. Lady of the Night, protect our sacred lake! Bless its indwelling spirits and grant us, the living, the enlightenment of your love!
Roman Priest of Diana at Ostia
Late 3rd Century.


Rock Lake was an ancient mining center, clearing house where raw copper extracted from the Great Lakes region was readied for shipment elsewhere and a home for the miners until they could
return to Michigan the following summer. This mining center operation would have employed  thousands of miners, handlers, sailors, overseers and workers of all kinds, together with an efficient
calendrical technology that would have been vital to their success and survival. There were found an  abundance of astronically significant structures stretching from Rock lake to the Upper

The First Mining Center in Aztalan and Upper Michigan ceased  and abandoned their operation approximately 1200 BC. They were again reopened approximately 900AD .  The date of Aztalan  
reopening coincides with the establishment of CAHOKIA.

Cahokia was known for their Woodhedge, which was a  precisely arranged circle of twenty foot tall red painted cedar posts that calculated the positions of the sun. With  accurate celestrial
information  they knew when to dispath their mining expeditions to the Upper Peninsula.   With the collapse of the Cahokia, many of them  migrated to the Rock Lake area  to be as close as possible
to the copper bearing region. During this time, they traded copper with the Toltec Civilizations in Mexico and South America.

In the 1930's, Archaeoligical excavations at Aztalan unearthed the remains of a large, rectangular building containing an abundance of unworked copper, establishing the sites identity as a mining
town. The buildings  eight inch thick walls were curved, slightly and ran between large furnaces or firepits, all suggesting that the copper was cast into ingots before shipping.

It seems that these people suddenly appeared on the scene and was  fully operational at approximately 3,000 BC. They wre using crib lifts to hoist more than three tons of rock at a time and highly
efficient propecting methods superior to late eighteenth century British technolgy. They were able to cut straight down into sixty feet of solid rock and organized a hierarchy of tasks for thousands of
workers. Add  they had advanced knowledge of astronomy, shipbuilding and navigation.  They appeared during an epoch considered the very dawn of civilization, and was already functioning at a
feverish pace in the Great lakes region centuries before the Trojan War!

According to the lunar date given in Plato's dialogues and corraborative Egyptian records, Atlantis was destroyed in the month of Goddess Hathor, roughly corresponding to our November, 1198
BC, the  approximate time Michigans copper mines were abandoned. The 14,000 BC date stated by Plato as the year in which Atlantis sank was an interpreters error brought about by failing to
properly tanscompute the Egyptian lunar time scale into Greek solar calendar.

The trade routes to North America were considered National Secrets. After the destruction of Atlantis, the knowledge of the Copper producing country was lost..and thus ended the Bronze Age.

Plato additionally described the destruction of Atlantis as having been so cataclysmic, the waters outside the Straits of Gibraltor were impassible because of the thick carpet of volcanic debris that
congested the nearby ocean, effectively preventing passage beyond the Mediterrean ocean.

Native Americans seemed to have picked up this traditon from the Ancient Miners -
as similar mounds have been found in the Indian Cemeteries.
One such Indian Cemetery was found in Dunn County by Wayne May. The site was located
on a ligh hill and featured dozens of mounds identical to the one found in Rock Lake by
Frank Joseph.
According to Joseph, they differed only in that the ones in Dunn County were made of earth
and the Rock Lake one was made of stones.
Others such as these do exist but as of yet, have not been documented.
These earthworks seem to be special graves, maybe family crypts, in which the deceased  
relatives were placed within the circular walls. Living descendents, in search of a vision
quest of personal communication with the dead would sit and often sleep in the crater like
depression . Here they would fast and do prayer or meditation , waiting for the signs from
their ancient ancestors.

“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."
