Laird Scranton | Skara Brae: Orkney Island’s Blueprint of Civilization | Hour 1 | Jan. 5, 2015


January 5, 2015–Laird Scranton is an independent software designer who became interested in Dogon mythology and symbolism in the early 1990s. He has studied ancient myth, language, and cosmology since 97. He has been a featured speaker at national conferences on ancient mysteries, including the Paradigm Symposium. He is the author of several books, including The Science of the Dogon and China’s Cosmological Prehistory.

Laird joins us to speak about his research on the magnificent site of Skara Brae on Orkney Island in Northern Scotland, a Neolithic farming settlement that is thought to date back prior to both Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids. These findings tie in to the subject of his new book, Point of Origin, which points to Gobekli Tepe as a center of civilizing knowledge for the ancient world.

He outlines the history of the Skara Brae site, which was covered over until the 1850s. Laird details the layout of the village and temple found at Skara Brae, a megalithic site that appears to be linked to a cosmological blueprint for instructional sanctuaries used by multiple ancient cultures around the globe.
