Decipherment of Stonehenge Earthworks: Image Map of Results (16 Color Resolution)

Repeat of the previous posting but showing a lower resolution map of only 16 colors, which has some advantages....

This posting shows the overview map of materials explained in greater detail in subsequent postings, showing that the barrows, viz. tumuli or tumps (in America, "mounds") that are nearest to Stonehenge served as astronomical markers, principally marking stars in a system of astronomical measure and attendant land survey that extended far beyond Stonehenge.

See also megaliths.net.

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.
