Sides Decipherment of Avebury Henge Stone #9 - Its Sides Mark Stars to the Left and Right of Ursa Major and Leo

Sides Decipherment of Avebury Henge Stone #9 - Its Sides Mark Stars to the Left and Right of Ursa Major and Leo

The side of Avebury Henge Stone #9 which currently faces Avebury Stone #8 must correctly face Avebury Stone #10 while the side of Avebury Henge Stone #9 currently facing Stone#10 must correctly face Stone #8. Their false positions are the result of Avebury Stone #9 having been falsely re-erected in the year 1938. See our previous postings for coverage of that story.

Here we present our photographs of the two sides of Avebury Stone #9 and their proper astronomical decipherment as marking stars as deciphered.

Each photo of a side of Avebury Stone #9 is followed by an image showing its astronomical decipherment:

Photo 1: The Side That Faces Stone #8 but Should Face Stone #10

This Side of Avebury Megalith #9 Marks Stars of a Sky Region from Coma Berenices at the Galactic Meridian to Centaurus at the Galactic Equator
(the left image is a very detailed tracing performed on the photograph above using the zoom function of Paint Shop Pro graphic software, while the right image presents the figures thus found in the corresponding stars)

Photo 2: The Side That Faces Stone #10 but Should Face Stone #8

This Side of Avebury Megalith #9 Marks Stars of a Sky Region from Cancer to Crater primarily Representing Hydra

These sides were more difficult to interpret than the large frontal faces of Avebury Stone #9, perhaps simply because they offer less space for carving of images. There is a bird at the throat of Hydra in the image above, which is a very old motif to which we attribute the "thunderbird" mythology in North America and which we found at the Roche Percée petroglyphs of Saskatchewan, SK, Canada, where it marks stars below Hydra and to the left of Canis Major and above Puppis (p. 148 of Volume 1 of the books cited below). Here the bird is placed further left. There will be more connections between the Old World and New World in coming Avebury decipherments.

    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically
    in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
