Archaeologists Excavated A Field In Kansas And Discovered A Lost City Hidden Beneath The Surface

In 2015 archaeologist Donald Blakeslee was searching the Great Plains for what he believed was a lost Native American city. Four-centuries-old conquistador writings had given him the idea that this city existed. But he’d drawn a blank. Then a student, Adam Ziegler, heard a signal on his metal detector and uncovered a cannon ball. But…

    Poor guy just lost some of his land.

  2. EdinburghFive on July 9, 2023 at 9:41 am

    Rather odd. There is nothing new about Pre-Columbian Indians groups in the Central US living in cities, maintaining extensive and far ranging trade networks, farming the land, etc. Has this professor not heard about Cahokia for example ?

  3. sehon powers on July 9, 2023 at 9:42 am

    I agree, the un has no business in this country and its sovereign land.

  4. Joel Turner A.I.W on July 9, 2023 at 9:47 am

    It’s not R kan saw city, it’s R Kansas.

  5. Fairy Frequency on July 9, 2023 at 9:47 am

    Absolutely fascinating ancient American city!

  6. balort santa on July 9, 2023 at 9:48 am

    They are finding if Whites originate in America. How ironic these white Americans forced these immigrants away, when their forefathers were immigrants itself. GO BACK TO EUROPE WHERE YOU CAME FROM.

  7. How2Blow on July 9, 2023 at 9:48 am

    That’s sad…

  8. Paul Martinez on July 9, 2023 at 9:49 am

    Taos Pueblo people built a Pueblo there previous to the Spanish discovering the Americas It’s part of their history and a prophecy that said the Whites would show Same prophecy says you leave Good Luck Slavers

    Trolls, I live abt 45 min. from Ark City, drive through there frequently to visit family in central Ks. Been doing this for abt. 40 yrs am very familiar with the area. The find of Etzanoa was on TV news and all the newspapers. I haven’t made it up there yet since discovery but am very eager to do so. This is very much a real find. Also, if you paid any attention to narrative the houses were of grass covered wood frame, doesn’t take long to disappear. I live just S.E. across state lines in Oklahoma in Cherokee Nation where I was born, am a registered Cherokee. I have documented my ancestry to late 1600’s and oral history much farther. I have great respect for my indigineous ancestors and all ancestors and history. People who scoff and disdain our history and forbearers only demonstrate their foolishness and ignorance. These are the ones so quick to speak of things they have no knowledge or understanding of and often lack the mental capacity to comprehend the importance of the past. That’s where you will find the future of humanity, we never change just do the same things over and over, just use different technology to destroy like the planetary parasites we unfortunately are. When a few become enlightened enough to live a better way the mob of fools always comes along to destroy and corrupt what little good humans are capable of.

  10. Theta Trader on July 9, 2023 at 9:51 am

    It’s "Ar-Kansas" not Arkansas and it is the same for the river.

  11. Nick qfn on July 9, 2023 at 9:53 am

    Why did the Europeans not catch diseases from the new world?

  12. ioe wells on July 9, 2023 at 9:53 am

    The name of the city is Ar-Kansas City not Arkansas City

  13. William Riley on July 9, 2023 at 9:55 am

    It’s actually pronounced Ark-Kansas City & Ark-Kansas River…!

  14. Gary Saunders on July 9, 2023 at 9:56 am

    All I could see was a hole in the ground probably dug by someone camping

  15. jeffrey robinson on July 9, 2023 at 9:56 am

    Still waiting for the lost city beneath the surface dull boring learnt nothing

  16. James Jacocks on July 9, 2023 at 9:58 am

    This interesting video is marred by the sick, moronic comments that it apparently elicited by mentioning government with its mass values. I wonder if these dwarfs are thinking at all or if they are droids, programmed by doomsday ideology. It must be fun to slide down the face of progress because so many do. Let’s all get wild and find our alpha leader. He does not kowtow to knowledge or education.

    That looks more like a pistol ball than a cannon ball.

  21. Randy Simmons on July 9, 2023 at 10:02 am

    The spanish killed indians?

  22. A on July 9, 2023 at 10:03 am

    There was a megalopolis all up and down the entire length of the Mississippi River. Read "1491" by Mann.

  23. Bell the Cat on July 9, 2023 at 10:03 am

    What is this? A cannon ball for ants??

  24. s k m on July 9, 2023 at 10:06 am

    In Kansas the river is ArKansas. Not Arkinsaw.

    I declare the price of Tea is to change tomorrow due to this meh discovery.

  29. Lucien Vandegaart on July 9, 2023 at 10:13 am

    History doesn’t change much just the characters and technology. Still trying to rule over others instead of being with others. Afew bad apples ( conquers) suppress who they claim to be for turning love into hate and us against them. The haves and have nots. The first creator will always make it equal that why we all end up as dust. It’s what we do for others and how we use his gift of mother Earth that will make us endure as a species. America has some terrible " leaders" now at this time who will go down in history worse then the conquestadors. Karma will take care of it’s own bad characters cuz we biologically might be the same but corruption is self evident that all men and women aren’t created or influenced the same by their acts and words
    Lol change can be a good thing ask the creator

  30. robert jones on July 9, 2023 at 10:13 am

    spain will claim all gold and pottery and f the un

    So why are the guys in the "bunny suits" taking water samples?

  32. G. T. Void on July 9, 2023 at 10:16 am

    There were pre-american indian peoples, the indians will even tell you that- the mound builders for instance. So, not everything found is Am Ind.

  33. Scott Just Scott on July 9, 2023 at 10:16 am

    It’s very strange how Native Americans in what is now the US were nearly wiped out but in what is now Mexico and Canada didn’t seem to be as badly affected even though they definitely were affected. I guess their governments and armies weren’t quite as ruthless. Diseases mainly brought by Spanish Explorers scattered the natives but it was definitely the US Cavalry that inflicted the most damage. Sorry whenever I watch something about the huge cities that just vanished…and most seem to coincide with Spanish expeditions in the area. The information we have about precolumbian america is so sparse and it shouldn’t be.

  34. kilogram064 on July 9, 2023 at 10:16 am

    Wait till the Mormons weigh in on this.

  35. wet timguavass on July 9, 2023 at 10:18 am

    Aztlan… The Mexica told the conquistadors about their ancient homeland.

  36. George on July 9, 2023 at 10:24 am

    I didn’t think the ancient native city found in Ontario Canada with farmed fields all around the site and the city was large enough to house 20,000 was the only one.

  37. open heart 147 on July 9, 2023 at 10:26 am

    They have been grave robbing since the 1900, finding the queens and king of theses land.

    What’s amazing is the pathological mindset casually embraced by so many of the commenters. Very few appear to make the connection between the ‘intentionally malevolent’ genocidal activities of the Conquistadors and those who followed them and the Quixotic belief shared by many today that one can ‘kill their way’ to the Next Level of Civilization, then fly off to pillage the universe.
    Most of you have heard of and eagerly support the concept of "Manifest Destiny" yet fail to perceive, like many of the Atlanteans before us, the imminent and massively self-destructive ‘Destiny that We are Manifesting’.
    Genocide and Slavery were foundational to the now ‘Worldwide Empire’ that America heads. Collective Antipathy and Constant Warfare maintain it.
    As the glaciers rapidly melt, ‘man-induced’ natural disasters intensify, and the Magnetic North Pole returns to its location before the start of the Younger Dryas, near Hudson Bay, the window of opportunity to avoid civilization-ending cataclysms is rapidly closing.
    The reason why ‘evil aliens’ haven’t invaded us is that WE ARE THE EVIL ALIENS (Our Perception is Limited).
    The REAL Organizing Principle of our ‘Current Level of Civilization’ is "Collective Antipathy for All Spirits based on Limiting Perception of the One Law." Its ‘9 perception Limiting Components’, which are always practiced together, are White Supremacy, Patriarchy, killer-god religions and ideologies that embrace the concept of ‘Chosen and Not Chosen people’, Genocide, Ritualized homosexuality and Child Abuse, Empire, Avarice, (wage) Slavery, and Constant Warfare.
    We must VOLUNTARILY make the "Ethical and Technological (Open Source)" transformation required to survive and enter the Next Level of Civilization.
    The ‘Civilizing Principle’ alluded to but never achieved by America’s Founding Fathers and is left to the "Wise Ones" among us to implement today, "…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness..". This lofty ideal is actually an ‘imperfect’ interpretation the ‘Primordial Organizing Principle’, "Collective Empathy for ALL SPIRITS based on Expanded Perception of the One Law".
    This was the Organizing Principle embraced by all Members of the "Previous Worldwide Civilization", including Atlantis for a time. It is also the Organizing Principle of the Advanced Beings (not gods) from the "Sah" (aka Constellation of Heru, Orion’s Belt), who first relayed it to us 16-17 "Great Years" ago (1 GY equals 25,920 solar years), and INNUMERABLE lifeforms across the "Omniverse," the web of universes roughly equal to the number of stars in our universe, most of whom are millions of years older than us. Embracing Collective Empathy places us on ‘equal footing’ with lifeforms much older and wiser than us.
    The ‘Wise Ones" among the ancient Atlanteans were unable to stop the genocidal activities of the lower vibrating Spirits among them and paid a civilization-ending price. Will the ‘Wise Ones’ among today’s Atlanteans fare any better?
    The first key to becoming a "Civilized Being" rather than exiting as a ‘Technologically Advanced Savage’ is to EMBRACE 100% OF YOURSELF, including the 97.55 to 99% of YOURSELF (most of us carry between 1-2.45% Neanderthal genes), that you have been conditioned to despise yet would not exist without.
    The second key is to REJECT all Perception Limiting components of Collective Antipathy and EMBRACE the ‘Primordial Organizing Principle’…
    "Collective Empathy for All Spirits based on Expanded Perception of the One Law"

    Let dead dogs lie.
    Most people struggle enough trying to understand and coop with present, let alone dig up shit from the past.

  40. Cathy McBride on July 9, 2023 at 10:28 am

    In Kansas, the city and the river are pronounced ArKANSAS City/River

  41. Ducky Darkstar on July 9, 2023 at 10:28 am

  42. mjinba07 on July 9, 2023 at 10:29 am

    Why the footage of two people in hazmat suits testing river water? Are we supposed to think they have something to do with the archaeological dig?

  43. Donald Grant on July 9, 2023 at 10:29 am

    Well there was some building of cities in N. America, but still don’t know why there was no cities like in Mexico and S’ America.

  44. Roberta Fierro on July 9, 2023 at 10:30 am

    Could this be the Lost City of Z??

  48. 67 cuda on July 9, 2023 at 10:34 am

    You made it sound as if the natives had modern technology of the time of their own creation ! Soft metals yes, but not smelting of iron !

  49. Milton Gilliland on July 9, 2023 at 10:35 am

    It’s not Arkansas City. It’s pronounced "R" Kansas City

  50. jeremy gibbins on July 9, 2023 at 10:37 am

    They hid this away for years, they always knew, but it conflicted with their ideas of manifest destiny, how could this land be destined for the great new nation if it was already occupied by another society, easy dehumanize the existing people kill them off and destroy the evidence, tell everyone that follows, "no never nothin around here" and say you found it
