Well, it depends upon what you mean by antiquity and what you mean by Modern
Freemasonry. There is no credible proof of the Masonic order back to either
Egypt or Solomon's Temple or the Essenes. OTH, Scottish lodges of accepted
masons, i.e., not operative masons, go back to the 17th century with minutes
of their meetings. UGLE was a late comer.
