... " pole and a "dark" gas giant at the "south" pole? This would have produced a prolate Earth and would provide a real "underworld." David Talbott mentions the occurrence of "sun" pictographs and the possibility that many of them may depict the polar planetary conjunction. [5 ] There are "sun" petroglyphs in the U.S . that are accompanied by what appears to be a Celtic Ogam inscription identifiable as G-R-N, which is readable as Ogam consaine (vowel-less Ogam) for Old Irish grian, which today means "Sun." However, it would be interesting to know the etymology of Gaelic grian to see if it might originally ...

... Tally marks as such have a long history and may even have started in the Neolithic. Those at Comalcalco show similarities to inscriptions in India and fired bricks were used from the 2nd century AD in southeast Asia, so could the contact have come across the Pacific? The Rochester Creek site in central Utah was a large sandstone block covered in petroglyphs, which were foreign to the region, with zoomorphic figures such as crocodile and hippopotamus and cobra. A case was made for Egyptian influence, which could have spread west via the Berbers, whose rock art also bore similarities to that of Rochester Creek. The theory is supported by a study of blood groups, where a factor showing ...

... god', adduced by John Bimson (Newsletter 3, p.8 ) as an adversary for the bison in the debate of doubtful value: "Was early Man confident or insecure?" requires some support from the academic field. There exists very little material evidence to clarify the meaning and purpose of the huge number of pictographs and petroglyphs which comprise Prehistoric and Neolithic rock art (25,000-4000 B.C .) . Quite often, we are forced back upon the configurations themselves, which suggests rightly, or wrongly, other configurations with which we are familiar. Horned god', sorcerer', anthropomorphic figure', are nothing but labels of identification concealing a ...

... similar example was photographed for a recent educational television documentary, "History on the Rocks", which highlights some of the archaeological evidence for pre-Columbian transoceanic visitors. In a small cave in Oklahoma, Sunrise rays on the cardinal day cast a pattern into the cave, bathing a correspondingly patterned inscription in its light. As with the West Virginia petroglyph, the inscription referred to the event. Over the years Dr. Fell has amassed a large amount of linguistic and other archaeological evidence pointing to the presence not only of the Celts, but of other ancient cultures as well. Many others since have joined the research and have forged firm links between ancient scripts and artifacts found in the ...

Several well-known mythologists in attendance jumped up shouting and pointing "The dragon! The arrows! The ladder of heaven! The backbone of the sky!" Ev fired up his laptop and opened his collection of petroglyph files. There, carved into rock walls in unmistakable detail by ancient artists, were Peratt's instabilities. For three or four or ten thousand years, no human eye has seen them.

... system"; the neutron bomb; and miniaturisation. Recommended to all with time and inclination to keep abreast of progress. Of particular interest is the issue for December 1977, devoted to The Astronomy of the Ancients. The writers of this issue examine the astronomical "Medicine Wheels" of the Plains Indians; apparent supernova records in early American petroglyphs; the earliest astronomical instruments (shadow-clocks, astrolabes, sundials from both hemispheres); the enigmatic legends, ancient and modern, concerning Sirius; the astronomical features of Stonehenge; the (suggested) terrestrial origins of the celestial Gorgon myth, and the possible celestial origins of the supposedly terrestrial Atlantis tradition. A fascinating, entertaining and informative ...
