The results of my investigations are summed up at the close of this preface. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country.
I think we find conclusive evidence in the work that the Ahau or Katun was a period of 24 years, and the great cycle of ; also, that the series commenced with a Cauac instead of a Kan year, as has been usually supposed. James Churchward also used other references to the destruction of his lands of Mu, such as the Ramayana, the Troano Manuscript, and the existence of ruins in certain locations, decorated with the correct symbols.
