In May 2005, a team of researchers made an extensive expedition to both Bimini and Andros in the Bahamas. A 73-minute DVD “amateur” documentary has been made of the expedition and its results.

In brief, near the formation known as the “Bimini Road,” numerous large stone circles were found along with stone anchors, wood under some of the large stones, and cut blocks of stone. This particular site is nearly completely unknown.

At the Bimini Road, numerous multiple tiers of stones were found, prop stones were found under the massive blocks, and cut rectangular slabs of stone were found literally stacked under some of the large blocks. A variety of other human artifacts were found.

The results indicate that the Bimini formation was once an ancient harbor, nearly identical to many in the Mediterranean.

Follow-up research on what skeptical geologists and one archaeologist have written uncovered a hoax that falsified reports on the site utilizing pseudoscience.

In brief, what popular archaeology textbooks have asserted about the site isn’t true. The root of the hoax was traced to U. S. Geological Survey geologist Eugene Shinn and archaeologist Marshall McKusick. In fact, Eugene Shinn’s original 1978 report actually detailed results that point to the Bimini Road being manmade.

The evidence of the hoax as well as the overall findings from the expedition have been prepared in a monograph in pdf files. Two pdf files of the 30-page monograph, containing 70 color photos and illustrations, are available for free download. The Screen version is 720 k, and is best used if you only plan on reading and viewing the monograph on a computer screen.

If you want to print out the paper, choose the Print version, which is over 6 mb. Individuals are permitted to download a copy for personal use, but reuse of any of the photos or illustrations (especially on the internet) is prohibited without obtaining permission. Mysterious-
