We were able to interview the chief archaeologist on the Presidential Task Force, Dr. Ali Akbar at University of Indonesia and get an update on the discoveries at Gunung Padang and its megalithic structure.
Captain Hans Berekoven and I, Clifford Terry, will be making a trip to Indonesia to connect with a few colleagues over there. Bob Effendi, the director of Greentech Indonesia, is organizing our itinerary and setting up the interviews we will be conducting. Some of the people we hope to be connecting with are Ali Akbar, the lead archaeologist on the Gunung Padang excavation and some the Indonesia Marine Geological Research Institute team. We are also hoping to connect with Dr. Danny Hillman Natawidjaja, the lead geologist working on Gunung Padang.
There have been a number of articles written about the megalithic site at Gunung Padang and the scientist there that are conducting the surveys. One of the leading scientists there and perhaps the one most associated with the site is geologist, Danny Hilman Natawidjaja. He has taken one the world's most well-known authority on unexplained phenomenon, Graham Hancock, on a tour of the site and the resulting article gave an in-depth analysis on the work being done there. Now he has invited a fellow geologist to take a tour of the site, Robert M. Schoch Ph.D. and the article that he wrote on his tour of the site and his assessment of the work being done there is the most comprehensive exposition on the surveys being conducted there and how the results can be interpreted. While there can still be a certain amount of controversy surrounding these interpretations, he uses his expertise in geology and comparisons to similar finding in other parts of the world to bring a legitimacy to the statements he is make. Have a read of his article and draw your own conclusions. I am sure you will find it illuminating.
