“UNEARTHING THE LOST CITY OF HELIOPOLIS (IGBO OKWU) – THE LOST CELESTIAL CAPITAL OF THE GODS OF EGYPT AND DRAVIDIAN INDIA”

Author: Professor Catherine Obianuju Acholonu

Institutional Affiliation: Director, Catherine Acholonu Research Center, Abuja, Nigeria.

Summary:

In 1950, Thurstan Shaw, a British Archaeologist  excavated  Igbo Ukwu, the  bastion  of  ancient  Igbo

civilization  and  unearthed  what  could  easily  fill  an  entire  museum from only three  pits.       Igbo

Ukwu goods proved to be an enigma because it had no relationship with any other goods excavated in

other parts of Nigeria or Africa. To add to the puzzle, it was found to relate more to India and this was

stated in all studies done at the time. Since 1990, Professor Catherine Acholonu has been conducting field

and library research on African Pre-history. In the process she has discovered that ancient Africans wrote

inscriptions on stone, pottery and metal, and that most of the items found in Igbo Ukwu carry symbols

also found in ancient Egypt, India and throughout the Middle East. Based on these  Acholonu took her

research team to Igbo Ukwu to conduct interviews and found out that  random  ‘excavation’ of buried

metal, pottery and piles of beads have been  going  on  for  as  long  as  the  town has been in existence

(continuing even after Shaw’s excavation), yet no one within living memory knows who left them. She

concluded that Igbo Ukwu is standing on a lost city of time immemorial – a Pre-Historic civilization!
