The Paint Creek Valley Mounds Seip and Baum Earthworks and Fortified Hill in Ohio as Stars of Ursa Major near the Big Dipper and North Celestial Pole

The Paint Creek Valley mounds and earthworks in Ohio, e.g. the Seip Earthworks and the Baum Earthworks, and even the Fortified Hill, all found along a six mile stretch of the Paint Creek Valley, mark stars of Ursa Major near the cup of what we today call the Big Dipper and near the North Celestial Pole.

This is one of the more amazing star groups marked on earth in Native America in ca. 300 B.C. because the manner in which the stars are seen in various figures is unusual, and it is in fact the most unusual of the figures, the Fortified Hill, which probably best proves that the decipherment presented here is correct, because the Fortified Hill mirrors an unusual shape formed by the stars.

An additional bonus is that the Seip Earthworks seem to present the variable eclipsing and haloed star TX Ursae Majoris in an earlier phase than we see today by the naked eye.

Below are the two decipherment graphic images, the first of the Paint Creek Valley Earthworks as a whole and the second with more detailed decipherments of the Seip Earthworks and the Baum Earthworks.

The Palm Creek Valley, Ross County, Ohio map of mounds and earthworks was "constructed" in 1847 by Squier and Davis and is presented online by Sean Chaney at his website at http://www.seanchaney.com/app/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=24:anthropology&catid=29:the-cms&Itemid=38.
Thank you for making this marvelous ground plan available online!

We are also greatly thankful to J.Q. Jacobs for his detailed presentation online at his website of the Seip Earthworks and Baum Earthworks, which are two principle locations in the Paint Creek Valley Earthworks. See the detailed ground plan maps online at http://www.jqjacobs.net/archaeo/seip.html. Jacobs does graphically beautiful work at his site. His detailed maps permit additional proofs since they reproduce features not found on the map constructed by Squier and Davis.

Neither Chaney nor Jacobs are affiliated with our work or with our websites or blogs and reference to the ground plan maps they have posted online at their websites does not mean in any way that they agree with the analysis found in this posting. The star interpretation is ours alone.

    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."
