Megalithic Standing Stones are Astronomy According to a New Scientific Study

We are happy to announce
-- as we have been writing for the last decades --
that megalithic "standing stones" are astronomy,

according to a confirming, just published "scientific study".

At New Atlas, formerly gizmag, David Szondy reports on an article published in the Journal of Archaeological Science Reports.
See New Atlas at newatlas.com/statistics-stonehenge-computer/44949/.

At New Atlas
Szondy summarizes the results, inter alia, as follows:

"[A] team of scientists from the University of Adelaide has statistically proven that some of the oldest standing stones in Britain were deliberately constructed to align with solar and lunar movements....

[T]he analysis revealed that these alignments not only included the stones, but the surrounding landscape and horizon as well. This showed that the ancient Britons connected the Earth to the sky in designing their stone circles....

As above, so below.

Via New Atlas and then ScienceDirect.com,
-- where at the latter one can read the Abstract to the article --
we discovered that:

The Reports of the Journal of Archaeological Science are an Elsevier publication. The study appeared in Volume 9, October 2016, Pages 249–258 under the title Origins of Standing Stone Astronomy in Britain: New quantitative techniques for the study of archaeoastronomy, by Gail Higginbottom and Roger Clay.

Higginbottom is at the Department of Physics, School of Physical Sciences, University of Adelaide, Adelaide, South Australia 5005, Australia while Clay is at the School of Archaeology & Anthropology, The Australian National University, Canberra, ACT 0200, Australia.

We imagine that their study is the beginning of an avalanche of research papers over the coming years that will for the most part confirm the correctness of our work over the years in deciphering megaliths and megalithic sites as astronomy.

We urge you to read our newest discoveries about the Avebury Stones of Avebury Henge at the LexiLine Board at ProBoards under that Board title of Avebury at lexiline.proboards.com/.

Also those discoveries will be confirmed, you can be sure. The data is so good that we can say that without a doubt.

  • Both volumes have the same cover except for the labels "Volume 1" viz. "Volume 2".
    The image on the cover was created using public domain space photos of Earth from NASA.


    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."
