CQ?s ancient pyramid claim

By MIKARLA THURECHT mikarla.thurecht@capnews.com.au

COULD Yeppoon really be home to ancient stone pyramids with the power to totally re- write the history books?

Self-confessed historical re- searchers Rex and Heather Gil- roy passionately believe so.

Mr Gilroy describes himself as a natural science researcher, foremost authority on the un- known history of Australia, founding father of Yowie re- search, ancient astronaut re- searcher, cryptozoologist and UFO researcher whose educa- tion level does not extend be- yond high school.

Mrs Gilroy is a nursing sister by profession.

The husband and wife team contacted The Morning Bulletin last week to let us know about their intentions to explore parts of Yeppoon and Rockhampton next month in a field search.

Mr Gilroy said if their re- search was correct, the discov- ery would prove their contro- versial theory that Captain Cook was a mere late-comer.

The Gilroys, of Katoomba, New South Wales, believe Ma- yans and other ancient Amerin- dian mariners reached the shores of Australia in huge blasa wood rafts centuries be- fore European explorers and even Aboriginals.

Mr Gilroy said there was plenty of evidence along the Queensland coast to prove their theory correct.
