Podcast #19 - Mid-2010 Great Uighur Empire Research Update
First Magyar/Hungarian research has provided some biographical information on Dr. Joseph Cserep. Dr. Cserep corresponded with James and mentioned the Uighurs. Two translated papers/letters from Dr. Cserep are available in our bookstore. The names are "America as the Prehistoric Cradle of the Caucasian Race" and "Ancient Medes as Ancestors of the Magyars of Europe." There is a new page on Dr. Cserep that provides some biographical data, a link to one of his books in the Magyar language, his quotes on the Uighurs, and previews of the aforementioned papers.
Our Hungarian friends also provided a link to the English language translation of the first chapter of the Arvisura - formerly an oral history that records their roots back to the Uighur Empire.
Further still, from a book by Baskoi Janos, some pages obviously concerned with the Uighur Empire have been scanned and are linked from the Great Uighur Empire webpage. I must admit that I don't even know the name of the book and can only guess at the content until it is translated into English. I have been unable to contact Mr. Janos.
I would like to thank our Hungarian friends for their contributions to the Great Uighur Empire Research. They remain unnamed as they requested.
Another avenue was opened when I came across a mention of the Uighur Empire in the book, "Lemuria and Atlantis Studying the Past to Survive the Future", by Shirley Andrews. I have included the complete passage, along with a new reference to the Uighur Empire of the Gobi Desert. According to Edgar Cayce, representatives from the Uighur Empire in 50722 BC attended an international conference to discuss a permanent solution to the problem of omnipresent dangerous wild animals. I will be following up to find out what else America's Sleeping Prophet had to say about the Uighur Empire of the Gobi.
James' description of the Great Uighur Empire is based on information from P.K. Koslov, a Russian explorer of Central Asia during the years of the Great Game. The old city of Khara Khoto was found by Koslov in 1909 and James stated that it was the capital city of the Great Uigur Empire. Despite James' assertion that Koslov was unable to bring anything back from Khara Khoto, relics from the ancient city are on display in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. Furthermore, Koslov's account of his visit to Khara Khota is available, although probably only in Russian under the English title of "Mongolia, Amdo, and the dead city of Khara-Khoto". If those sections from the book could be translated into English then maybe Koslov will rise from the grave to prove James correct about the Great Uighur Empire. Further information is online with a portion of the scanned publication, "Innermost Asia" which details Sir Aurel Stein's visit to the area when he was on expedition in Asia in 1913-1916. The appropriate section is linked in pdf format from the Great Uighur Empire webpage and was obtained from the Digital Silk Road archives.
There appears to be an upwelling of interest in the Great Uighur Empire. We wish to conduct an English language conference on the Great Uighur Empire in Florida sometime next winter. If you are interested, please send us an email.
Finally, we regret that research by Turkish scholars in English is basically non-existent. There are so many things that we can share on this topic, but not if we can't read it.
Thanks for listening and have a great day.
