Peterborough Petroglyphs Canada

Peterborough Petroglpyhs Canada

I have been successful in deciphering the Peterborough
Petroglyphs in entirety as a geodetic astronomical planisphere.

The decipherment is found as

peterborough.tif - excellent quality picture
and
peterborough.gif - rather poor quality but less memory required and
less download time

at the LexiLine Files in the folder for Canada at
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LexiLine/files

These petroglyphs are spectacular and contain an ancient map of the
north of North America, surveyed by astronomy, and clearly showing
the St. Lawrence Seaway, for example, as well as Chesapeake Bay and
the Potomac.

My rather rough drawing of the Peterborough Petroglyphs is based on
a very large drawing found in the back map pocket of the The Sacred
Art of the Algonkians: A Study of the Peterborough Petroglyphs
by
Joan M. Vastokas and Romas K. Vastokas, Mansard Press, P.O. Box 443,
Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, K9J 6Z3, a book which cost me a
fortune to buy used, but it was worth the Vastokas map of the glyphs.

Of course, the Vastokas had no idea that the petroglpyhs were an
ancient geodetic map surveyed by the stars - including the southern
stars, and their analysis is confined to the normal ethnological
remarks about signs and symbols, but the making of the map was a
gargantuan task which the Vastokas did beautifully.

Also spectacular at Peterborough is the presence of four signs on
the glyph "possibly" reading GNOMON and these four signs are the same as those
found for the identical astronomical positon at Lewes, England. We
thus have a possible speculative connection of the Peterborough
Petroglyphs to the megalithic peoples of Ancient Britain (and surely
the Baltic and Scandinavia), so that I date this map to ca. 3117 BC,
as all neolithic megalithic sites seem to stem from approximately
that era.

    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."
