The traditional Aboriginal memory technique that unlocks the secrets of Stonehenge, Easter Island and ancient monuments the world over.
Lynne Kelly has discovered that a powerful memory technique used by the ancients can unlock the secrets of the Neolithic stone circles of Britain and Europe, the ancient Pueblo buildings in New Mexico and other prehistoric stone monuments across the world.
We can still use the memory code today to train our own memories.
In the past, the elders had encyclopaedic memories. They could name all the animals and plants across the landscape, and the stars in the sky too.
Yet most of us struggle to memorise more than a short poem. Using traditional Aboriginal Australian songlines as the key, Lynne Kelly has identified the powerful memory technique used by indigenous people around the world.
She has discovered that this ancient memory technique is the secret behind the great stone monuments like Stonehenge, which have for so long puzzled archaeologists. The stone circles across Britain and northern Europe, the elaborate stone houses of New Mexico, the huge animal shapes at Nasca in Peru, and the statues of Easter Island all serve as the most effective memory system ever invented by humans.
They allowed people in non-literate cultures to memorise the vast amounts of practical information they needed to survive.
Praise for The Memory Code: As we rediscover the extraordinary endurance of the oral memories of people who do not depend on writing, and as we begin to rediscover that many of those memories include knowledge of distant times, Lynne Kelly has explored how vast, non-written memory systems can work.
She explores the notion that memories were or are encoded in spaces that can be marked by natural or build elements and applies that exploration to some of the remarkable physical monuments of the last ten thousand years.
She takes the reader on a fascinating journey into the past and around the world and into the minds of people who would not need to publish a book like this.
They already knew it. An engaging and exciting read. Iain Davidson, Emeritus Professor, University of New England Dr Kelly has developed an intriguing and highly original account of the purpose of Stonehenge, Avebury and other stone monuments. The depth and breath of her research, and experimental experience she has brought to study, command respect and invite serious attention.
William Lipe, Professor Emeritus, Washington State University Dr Lynne Kelly provides an elegant, rational and compelling thesis on memory as a pre-historic survival tool.
I found it difficult to put down and completely revelating! Nelson Dellis, four times US Memory Champion Lynne Kelly takes us on a journey to famous archaeological sites around the world, from Stonehenge to Easter Island, to reveal her groundbreaking ideas about how ancient oral cultures encoded knowledge in stone monuments and sacred spaces.
The Memory Code is a landmark treatise.
Dr Tim Dean, Science and Technology Editor at The Conversation This is a timeless masterpiece in ancient remedies; it is a must-read for anyone interested in information technologies, ancient or modern.Chinese art is visual art that, whether ancient or modern, originated in or is practiced in China or by Chinese artists.

The ancient Chinese scrolls are an evergreen way of remembering how people used to communicate in the early ancient times. A scroll is a roll of papyrus, parchment, or paper which has been written, drawn or painted upon for the purpose of transmitting information or using as a decoration.
Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years. We have now placed Twitpic in an archived state. Chinese civilization, as described in mythology, begins with Pangu, the creator of the universe, and a succession of legendary sage-emperors and culture heroes (among them are Huang Di, Yao, and Shun) who taught the ancient Chinese to communicate and to find sustenance, clothing, and shelter.
