Around 3200 BC the first organized farming village in the United Kingdom, known as Skara Brae, appeared on Orkney Island in Northern Scotland. Over the next six hundred years, these villagers constructed megalithic sites exhibiting the stone working tradition that later produced such structures as Stonehenge. Who were these ancient people? Traditional archaeology tells us little about the artifacts found there.
An avid researcher of world cultures, Scranton has discovered numerous “signatures” of an archaic, pre-Vedic (5000 B.C.) creation tradition reflected in Orkney architecture—the same symbolic tradition shown in ancient cultures in India, Egypt, China, and South America. These “signatures” take the form of recognizable megalithic forms, names of localities, and even in the details of an obscure burial tradition. Furthermore, the DNA of animal and plant species unique to Orkney Island appear to coincide with the same region of the Middle East’s Fertile Crescent. Could the Orkney Island people represent the Pharaonic tradition in ancient Egypt, linked by many of the same traditions, rituals, and concepts?
His studies in comparative cosmology have served help synchronize aspects of ancient African, Egyptian, Vedic, Chinese, Polynesian and other world cosmologies, and have led to an alternate approach to reading Egyptian hieroglyphic words. His degree is in English from Vassar College.
He is the author of The Science of the Dogon: Decoding the African Mystery Tradition (2006); Sacred Symbols of the Dogon: The Key to Advanced Science in the Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs (2007); Seeking the Primordial: Exploring Root Concepts of Cosmological Creation (2017); The Mystery of Skara Brae: Neolithic Scotland and the Origins of Ancient Egypt (2017), The Velikovsky Heresies (2012); China's Cosmological Prehistory (2014); and Point of Origin (2015.
Scranton appears in John Anthony West’s “Magical Egypt” DVD documentary series, and Carmen Boulter's "The Pyramid Code,"(Documentary Channel.) He has been a guest on George Noory’s “Coast-to-Coast AM” and “Red Ice Radio” in Sweden.
He has presented at conferences on ancient mysteries including Walter Cruttenden's annual CPAK (Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge), the A.R.E.
