The Great Uighur Empire

James Churchward wrote about the Great Uighur Empire in the 1926 book, The Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Man and the 1931 books, The Children of Mu and The Lost Continent of Mu. The purpose of this page is to replicate the text about the Great Uighur Empire as written by James Churchward in The Lost Continent of Mu.

Map of the Great Uighur Empire

I think the Uighur record will be all that is necessary
to convince the most skeptical mind that it is clearly
proven by symbols alone that Mu was the Motherland
of Man.
The Uighur was the principal colonial empire belong-
ing to Mu at the time of the Biblical "Flood," which
destroyed its eastern half.

1191Chinese legends tell that the Uighurs were at the height
2of their civilization about 17,000 years ago. This date
3agrees with geological phenomena.
4The Uighur Empire stretched its powerful arms from
5the Pacific Ocean across Central Asia and into Eastern
6Europe from the Caspian Sea on. This was before the
7British Isles became separated from the continent of
9The southern boundary of the Uighur Empire was
10along the northern boundaries of Cochin China, Burma,
11India, and Persia, and this was before the Himalayas and
12the other Asiatic mountains were raised.
13Their northern boundary extended into Siberia, but
14how far there is no record to tell. Remains of their cities
15have been found in the southern parts of Siberia.
16Eventually the Uighurs extended themselves into
17Europe around the western and northern shores of the
18Caspian Sea, as related in a very ancient Hindu record;
19from here they continued in through Central Europe to
20its western boundary, Ireland.
21They settled in northern Spain, northern France, and
22far down into the Balkan region. The late archaeological
23discoveries in Moravia are Uighur remains, and the evi-
24dences on which ethnologists have based their theories
25that man originated in Asia have been marks left by the
26advancing Uighurs in Europe.
27The history is the Uighurs is the history of the Aryans.
28Ethnologists have classed certain white races as Ar-
29yans that are not Aryans at all, but belong totally dif-
30ferent line of colonization.
31The capital city of the Uighurs was where the ruins of
32Khara Khota now stand in the Gobi Desert. At the time
33of the Uighur Empire the Gobi Desert was an exceed-
34ingly fertile area of land.

1201The Uighurs had reached a high state of civilization
2and culture; they knew astrology, mining, the textile in-
3dustries, architecture, mathematics, agriculture, writing,
4reading, medicine, etc. They were experts in decorative
5art on silk, metals, and wood, and they made statues of
6gold, silver, bronze, and clay; and this was before the
7history of Egypt commenced.
8About one-half of the Uighur Empire was destroyed
9before Mu went down, the other half subsequent to Mu's
11Professor Kosloff unearthed a tomb 50 feet below the
12surface at Khara Khota and in it found wonderful treas-
13ures, which he photographed, not being allowed to dis-
14turb or take anything away. Through the courtesy of the
15American Weekly I have obtained the loan of some of
16these pictures, two of which I here reproduce with their
17decipherings. I think I am safe in believing that these
18pictures represent a time between 16,000 and 18,000 years
19ago (halftones between pages 160-161).
20These pictures are symbolical, the various symbols tell-
21ing who they are and what they are. In the orginal they
22are paintings on silk and represent a queen and her con-
23sort in a sitting posture. I will now pick out the symbols
24of the Queen. On her head is a three-pointed crown with
25a disc in the center with three sets of rays emanating from
26it. Behind her body is a large disc, the sun. At the back
27of her head is a smaller disc, an inferior sun. The large
28disc symbolizes Mu, the small disc the Uighur Colonial
29Empire. The crown on her head, a sun with rays on one
30half only, shows the escutcheon of a colonial empire. In
31her left hand she carries a scepter, the ends of which are
32in the form of a trident - three points - the Motherland's
34Her seat is a full-blown sacred lotus, the floral symbol

1211of the Motherland, so that she is depicted as sitting in the
2lap of and being upheld by Mu, the Motherland. Her
3consort does not carry a scepter, nor has he a sun with
4rays, but in its place a sphere. His crown also shows the
5Motherland's numeral.
6Kosloff had pictures of various scepters. This illustra-
7tion is of a different pattern from the one held in the queen's
8hand, and of later date, but symbolically reads the same,
9the ends being divided into three giving the numeral of
10the Motherland.
11Thus we see the symbols of Asia, America, South Sea
12Islands and New Zealand all agreeing in the tale they
13tell. Could anything be more definite or convincing-
14unless our old forefathers were to rise from their graves,
15to tell us by word of mouth what happened to them in
16the land of Mu?
