Neolithic and Bronze Age site
of special significance because of
the great age
assigned by archaeologists to the cave art
and to the artifacts (Br. artefacts) found at that cave.
We first presented our simple cave results about Creswall Crags
some ten years ago,
when we dated the ancient astronomy at
Creswell Crags to 3117 B.C.
Due to our new decipherment from Creswell Crags presented
we must amend our date for the astronomy at Creswell Crags
to somewhere around 10000 B.C.,
which correlates with dates beyond 10000 B.C.
to finds at the Creswell Crags site
via radiocarbon dating of artefacts.
We have difficulty accepting this kind of calendric astronomy
for such an early era, but the Ochre Horse is clear evidence
that calendric astronomy based on the passage of the Sun
through "groups" of bright stars in the heavens,
is a much older technological advance
than we previously deemed possible.
Attribution of the source of the photograph
from which we have removed the black background,
is as follows from the Wikipedia:
The Ochre Horse. This original fragment of a rib bone contains the
oldest known carving of its type in Britain. The horse was carved
approximately 12,500 years ago and was on temporary display at the
small museum at Creswell Crags to November 2009 (although a replica of
the ochre horse is always on display). It was found on the 29th June in
1876 at the back of the western chamber in the 'Robin Hood Cave' in
Creswell Crags. Sieveking 855, British Museum. More information can be
found at the original website: www.creswell-crags.org.uk/Home.aspx

We are pleased to see in the graphic below,
that our original identification of the caves at Creswell Crags
star groups from ca. Aquila to Virgo
is substantiated by the new
decipherment shown above,
but the date has to be amended to ca. 7000 years earlier.
