Adams Calendar

Discovering the Oldest Man-made Structure on Earth.
In the Cradle of Humankind

Older than the Giza Pyramids
Older than Stonehenge

75,000 years ago… early humans built a stone calendar that predates all other man-made structures found to date. Who were they? Why did they need a calendar?

Six years of research by a group of independent scientists and explorers has delivered what may deliver the crucial missing elements in the development of early humans. Their work has been released in a book they call Adam’s Calendar.

How does Adam’s Calendar fit into the cultural heritage picture?
It estimated that there are over 20 000 ancient stone ruins scattered throughout the mountains of southern Africa. Modern historians have been speculating about the origins of these ruins, often calling them ‘cattle kraal of little historic importance’. The truth of the matter is that closer scientific inspection paints a completely different and astonishing new picture about the ancient history of these stone ruins of southern Africa. The scientific reality is that we actually know very little about these spectacular ancient ruins and it is a great tragedy that thousands have already been destroyed through sheer ignorance by forestry, farmers and development.

Artefacts that have been recovered from these ruins show a long and extended period of settlement that spans well over 200,000 years. Over the past three decades several researchers have raised this issue only to be ridiculed and often ostracised. Many leading scientist and historians have since voiced their support for such ancient origins. Since southern Africa is the cradle of humankind, we should not be surprised to find such ruins, but we should rather expect these discoveries.

Adam’s Calendar is the flagship among these ruins because we can date this monolithic calendar with relative certainty to at least 75,000 years of age based on a number of scientific evaluations. In turn Adam’s Calendar points to the diverse ancient history of southern Africa and presents the first tangible evidence of the earliest humans in the ‘Cradle of humankind’.

The Orion Connection
This remarkable stone structure was originally a large circular structure resembling but predating Stonehenge by many thousands of years. It’s original shape is clearly visible from satellite images. Adam’s Calendar is built along the same longitudinal line as Great Zimbabwe and the Great Pyramid. It is also aligned with the rise of Orion’s belt when it rose horizontally on the horizon some 75,000 years ago. Adam’s Calendar takes us further back in time closer to the emergence of Homo sapiens, than any other structure ever found to date, and it will force historians and archaeologist to reconsider ancient human activity and consciousness.

An Extract From “Adam’s Calendar”
Southern Africa holds some of the deepest mysteries in all of human history. Although much has been written about the first humans who appeared in this part of the world, we have found very little evidence of their activity or what they did and what kind of lives they led from around 250,000 years ago to 75,000 years ago.
Who were these first humans?
What did they do?
How did they live?
And where did they disappear to?

The first signs of human intelligence and consciousness only appeared around 75 000 years ago, when the Khoisan people of southern Africa started leaving behind an array of spectacular cave paintings all over this part of the continent. Finely crafted beads and bracelet fragments found in a cave at Blombos in the Western Cape, South Africa, show that these early humans had already developed a feel for the arts and crafts.

The legends become even more vivid when we learn about the great empire of Monomotapa whose kings were powerful and wealthy in gold. When we move to around 1000 BC we encounter the mysterious Queen Sheba who ruled a kingdom in the lost land of Ophir, teeming with endless supplies of gold; and the wise and wealthy king Solomon who seduced Queen Sheba and obtained all his gold from her.

Is it possible that there really was such a place?
Was it really filled with limitless wealth in gold?
Was it here where the wealthiest kings on Earth got their gold?

This is after all the place where most of the gold in the world has been mined in modern history, and it was no different in ancient times. Is it a coincidence that the richest gold mine in the world today, Sheba Gold Mine, is located right here in Mpumalanga, South Africa?

Adam’s Calendar firmly places the many ancient ruins of southern Africa at a point in history that we modern humans have never faced before some 75,000 ago.

Johan Heine examines the carved edge on the leading monolith which casts a clear shadow on the flat calendar rock. The wider monolith became the calendar on which days and weeks were marked as the movement of the sun stretched perfectly from one edge to the other, left to right, and than back again.

The oldest statue on Earth carved out by the architects of Adam’s Calendar some 75,000 years ago. It was removed from its original position in 1994 where it stood looking at the sunrise over the large monoliths.

The Johan Heine Stone Calendar (affectionately called Adam’s Calendar) has been dated by astronomer Bill Hollenbach to be around 75,000 years, based on the movement of the peoples in southern Africa and the emergence of rock art during that period. But it could in fact be even older – dating back to the dawn of Homo sapiens some 250,000 years ago.Title: Adam’s CalendarPublisher: Zulu Planet Publishers (
