[This blogpost is an excerpt from the foreword by Rowen Gardner for the upcoming 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition hardcover DRACONOMICON BY JOSHUA FREE.]
“Joshua Free is famously known for proposing the origins of Druidism as Mesopotamia… This theme is sure to catch many folk off guard and has been a constant source of contention between the author and many of his harsher critics and less informed readers. There is little doubt that it is a shocking or surprising conclusion expressed by the author for at least two decades—but the author has remained steadfast, again, in their resolve that their “intuitions” were right. This pursuit became such an occupation for the author that he spent most of this current millennium attempting to establish this point to esoteric audiences…with mixed results.”
“One theory put forth by Joshua Free, keystone to his writings, regards a prehistoric collective migration of Mesopotamian systemology across Europe, citing examples of the La Tene culture and marked by the indigenous traditions developed later in vicinity to the Danube River, one of two pathways he suggested that it probably traveled.”

“Joshua Free states that it is only the result of Roman intervention and the domination of the ‘Classical World’ over the former ancient one that pushed these traditions and evidence for them into specific concentrated locations—such as we easily can see with the ‘Celtic World’ that is traditionally attributed exclusively to the British Isles or Ireland, yet it once served as a dominating influence for most of the European continent. How easily we forget…”
“One additional facet of Joshua Free’s theory is that prior to the migration, a localized concentration of this population emerged from the Ancient Near East and gathered in ancient Anatolia (modern day Turkey)—the place of the legendary “Drunemeton,” a secret birthplace of Druidry that only the highest ranks among them knew of and would regularly return to during their lifetimes. All wild theories?”“

“In April 2019, the BBC headlines read: ‘DNA Reveals Origins of Stonehenge Builders.’ Articles provided research summaries published in Nature, Ecology & Evolution. It described a neolithic western migration in c. 6000 B.C. from Anatolia, modern-day Turkey, across two routes—the Mediterranean and Danube River Valley—which spread early Mesopotamian knowledge of agriculture across Europe, reaching Britain by c. 4000 B.C…”
“I’ve since decided to take the writings by Joshua Free even more seriously. I would encourage anyone else to perhaps do the same…” –Rowen Gardner
DRACONOMICON The Book of Ancient Dragon Magick
Collector’s Edition – Hardcover
by Joshua Free
Global Release: July 31, 2019
HERE BE DRAGONS! Behold the ultimate “Book of the Dragon” for modern magick-users and fantasy enthusiasts alike–now completely revised and expanded for its 25th anniversary. This underground cult-classic “Draconomicon” offers powerful teachings and lore of ancient “dragon magick” and its legacy.
SEVEN YEARS AGO, in 2010, the Mardukite Research Organization finally surpassed material featured in the original collected anthology volume of the ‘Mardukite Core’ (Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible) with the release of LIBER-50, known then as “Gates of the Necronomicon” and later widely distributed among the public as SUMERIAN RELIGIONby Joshua Free. To date, LIBER-50 and its companion work are the “most critically acclaimed materials from the Mardukite Research Organization” and are now available in one economical volume for the first time!
The ultimate quest toward uncovering ‘ancient arts’ has one fundamental theme in mind: the establishment of true knowledge concerning the ‘powers’ these arts were dedicated to and then a working relationship with these powers. This is the true “wizard’s” or “priest’s” art, who pleases the “gods” in such a way as to attain “favors,” and does not waste time provoking malignant spirits to their circle, fearing for their lives at the mistaken utterance of an incantation. The true and ancient system is nothing like this.
Sifting the sands of time, we are brought to learn at the feet of ancient traditions and spirito-mystical systems of the Middle East — not the Middle East as we know of it today — those born from ancient Sumerians and afterward extended to interpretations by Chaldeo-Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians and even Egyptians. The spread of this tradition across Europe (La Tene) led to even more fanciful and colorful realizations of the primary “Olympian mythology” that had first been realized in ancient Mesopotamia.
LIBER-50 (Original 2010 Edition)
My current work within the system has led me to believe that the Anunnaki beings are in fact the “gods” who made an appearance as “divine representatives” to all of the ancient cultures on the earth planet. What’s more, their presence was later interpreted in the guise of “fairy tales,” which seem to carry remnants of a folk magic tradition from ancient times into to today. Curiously, the “ceremonial magic” of the priests of old, including the self-styled magicians of today, are really working with these same forces, simply under other guises and names. Should all this be the case, the proper understanding of and establishment of our position with these beings is perhaps the most paramount endeavor of our physical existence… for which we have provided the seeker with LIBER-50…(written before the 2011 NABU Alien Disclosure)
SUMERIAN RELIGION (DELUXE EDITION) is a highly innovative and accessible ‘academic edition’ of the Mardukite Chamberlains “Year-2” research and development, including the complete text from two installments: “Sumerian Religion: Secrets of the Anunnaki & The Origins of Babylon” (Liber 50) & “Sumerian Religion II: Secrets of the Anunnaki in Babylonian Mythology” (Liber 51/52) in a single incredible compilation! Arriving on the surface world from the underground – an amazing insight into the Anunnaki ‘ancient alien gods‘ and the establishment of human civilization famously accounted by the Sumerian and Babylonian traditions. Prolific writer, Joshua Free, presents this topic such as the modern world has never before had access to, developed from the revolutionary work conducted by the next generation of Seekers actively using a revival Anunnaki tradition in the present day!
The nature, identity and relationship that Anunnaki “gods” of ancient Mesopotamia -– the Sumerians and Babylonians -– is very important, not only for understanding the literally ‘Mardukite’ work, but also for possessing a greater ‘wide-angle’ vision of life, reality and existence – not to mention understanding your own place and legacy within it. All original and later work of the ‘Mardukite’ Chamberlains, all of these other authors and producers and their theories and explanations of things past, present and even future -– they are all dependent on a clear and concise basis of understanding and comprehension of the very root element that it all surrounds -– the very beings that made all of this history and human development possible. For without this key knowledge, and an objective one-to-one correlation of this knowledge with reality, all of the other research, reading and even the experience of life and reality is guaranteed to be experienced ‘out of context’ from what is Truth. Critical analysis of the details found within SUMERIAN RELIGION provides a solution!
The meaning and innate desire to pursue truth, particularly what has been known as the Secret of the Ages, is no less obvious in the realm of science and academia then it is in the world of the occultist. Those who have been dubbed ‘esotericists’ are not the only ones who are interested in these matters, nor are they even the original ones. Only the methodologies and intentions differ. And yet again – all is connected. Without the intellectual and scholarly pursuits by historians and academicians, we might have far fewer clues toward this ‘mental image’ reconstruction of the past. Where then would the truth seeker have to draw his inspiration? From the fanciful recollections of distorted fairy-tales available to the surface world? Certainly, not.
recovery of the truth of mankind’s past is paramount to the fate of humanity’s future. Thus, it should could by no surprise that the geographic terrain of its origins has been the victim of unyielding war and suffering for thousands of years – further enshrouding those unveiling efforts with a measure of hesitation and doubt painted by political opinions of the modern Middle East, and for our purposes, what the academicians have called the Ancient Near East.
SUMERIAN RELIGION is not merely the presentation of dry academic renderings of obscure tablets; this book will take you on a progressive journey that is just as relevant and critical today as it was thousands of years ago!
Uncover the mysteries that lay hidden in ancient Sumer, with a message so relevant today, it is no wonder it became the greatest kept secret of Babylon!
