Ancient Signs

My newest print & ebook, Ancient Signs
shows that our modern alphabet is based on alphabets derived from syllabic scripts (Sumer, Egypt, Iran, Anatolia, Crete, Cyprus).

Ancient Britain
STONEHENGE
BARROWS
and
EARTHWORKS
as Astronomy


First-time users please read
the Index Page
thoroughly for understanding.



We have revised the stars that we think were
marked by the Stonehenge Barrows as follows:

The system of barrows seems to have its origin at least as far back as 3000 B.C.  According to our analysis, the long barrow at Winterbourne Stoke Crossroads marks the crossing point of the ecliptic, ecliptic meridian and celestial meridian at the point of the Vernal Equinox ca. 3117 B.C. That conclusion supports e.g. Professor Julian Thomas of Manchester who assigns an ancient date beyond 3000 B.C. to some of these earthworks.

The Pleiades at Stonehenge


If the tumps, tumuli and barrows of Ancient Britain
marked stars in the heavens, as we argue they did (see megaliths.net),
then these tumuli clearly mark the Pleiades.

Take a look at Google Earth and the barrows
(also called tumuli viz. tumps, i.e. "earth mounds")
that surround Stonehenge.

The image below shows tumuli to the left of Stonehenge
that can be viewed at Google Earth,
as these tumps are found just above and to the right
of the roundabout (intersection) on the road to Winterbourne Stoke.


A clipped Google Earth map of the area around Stonehenge is reproduced at the top of the image above. Compare that map with the star image directly below it based on Starry Night Pro (http://astronomy.starrynight.com/) star positions, and compare both maps with the bottom photo above of the Pleiades by Vladislav Yastrebov
at http://yastrebov.fr/photo_astro.html (c) Vladislav Yastrebov (posted here as "fair use").


Cetus at Stonehenge

If tumps, tumuli and barrows in Ancient Britain
represented stars, then the tumuli below Stonehenge
are the stars of Cetus

Take a look at Google Earth and the tumps (also called tumuli viz. barrows) that surround Stonehenge.

The bottom half of the image below shows tumuli to the South of Stonehenge that can be viewed at Google Earth.


A clipped Google Earth map of the area below Stonehenge is reproduced at the bottom of the image above. Compare that map with the star image directly above it by Robert Mura, CC-BY-SA 3.0, from Software Perseus, via Wikimedia Commons http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cet.png.
 
Compare now the following star map which has the same relative size as the star map above, and that is why we use it, but is here imposed upon it, showing names of stars and the modern view of Cetus. We see that the ancients used many of the same stars, but at that time had a different resulting conception of what Cetus represented.


The image directly above from http://www.sternfreunde-muenster.de/sternbild.php?stbld=walfisch is copyrighted at the website of Sternfreunde Münster, Verein für Astronomie, which has a terrific astronomy website at http://www.sternfreunde-muenster.de. We post it here as fair use. Do not be put off by the fact that it is in German language, as astronomy is by and large international in scope, so that the images of constellations can be understood by anyone, as above.

In any case, as previously stated, if the tumps, tumuli and barrows of Ancient Britain marked stars in the heavens, as we argue they did (see megaliths.net), then these tumuli clearly mark the stars of Cetus and I have added red lines to show the stars corresponding to the appropriate tumuli.

There is a line of tumuli below these and those are also stars of Cetus and further down the line stars of Eridanus and Fornax, as identified on our main decipherment image some postings previous to this one. There are several obvious "lines" of stars extending down from Cetus and Eridanus but we superimposed images of the stars from Starry Night Pro on variously sized maps of Google Earth and they showed that the line we identify is the line intended by the ancients.

Of interest in this matter
in terms of formal archaeological examination
of the Winterbourne Stoke Barrows
is the English Heritage report
by S. Newsome, M. Bowden, A. Komar, and S. Bax
in Report Number 107 of the year 2010 titled
Stonehenge World Heritage Site Landscape Project: Winterbourne Stoke Crossroads, Report Number: 107/2010, Series: Research Department Reports
Pages: 56, English Heritage.

______________________


Stonehenge and its Barrows is a book
by William Long (Esq., M.A., F.S.A),
in which we found a detailed map of the barrows
that allowed us to decipher the whole area of the barrows
as a sky map of the stars, i.e. as a ancient planisphere.
The book was published by Devizes in 1876
based on the original publication in vol. xvi of
Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Magazine.

The graphic below is a scan composite (6 scans combined into one)
made by Andis Kaulins of a large survey map found in the above book.
 The map is titled "A Map of Stonehenge and its Environs"
with the circle of stones that we know as modern Stonehenge
located in the middle as a small double circle.
