The Memory Code

by Lynne Kelly

The Traditional Aboriginal Memory Technique That Unlocks the Secrets of Stonehenge, Easter Island and Ancient Monuments the World Over

Lynne Kelly has discovered that a powerful memory technique used by the ancients can unlock the secrets of the Neolithic stone circles of Britain and Europe, the ancient Pueblo buildings in New Mexico and other prehistoric stone monuments across the world.

We can still use the memory code today to train our own memories.

In the past, the elders had encyclopaedic memories. They could name all the animals and plants across the landscape, and the stars in the sky too. Yet most of us struggle to memorise more than a short poem.

Using traditional Aboriginal Australian songlines as the key, Lynne Kelly has identified the powerful memory technique used by indigenous people around the world. She has discovered that this ancient memory technique is the secret behind the great stone monuments like Stonehenge, which have for so long puzzled archaeologists.

Reviewed by Ben at Angus & Robertson Bookworld:
It astounds me to see just how much insight we have into our history by looking at our indigenous cultures with fresh eyes. That’s exactly what Lynne Kelly has done in this remarkable new book. 

By taking examples of living practices in Aboriginal cultures across Australia, she’s able to see parallels in the mammoth constructions of prehistoric cultures across the globe. In doing so, she gives readers new insights into some of the world’s most mysterious places – Stonehenge, Easter Island, and the Nasca desert to name a few.

When talking about archaeological sites that are hotbed for UFO fanatics, the author is always careful to be honest with her observations and not to exaggerate their implications. This book is a whole lot of debunking and common sense. With a simple, personal style to its narration and illustrations throughout, The Memory Code is a thrilling read.
