A New Book About Megalithic Culture and
A Guide To Megalithic Sites
This book is primarily a study of Bronze Age petroglyphs, found at 14 sites, thus 14 chapters. The site of Loughcrew shows pictographic writing, which tells, through use of encoded latitudes, tales of discovery of islands in the Atlantic Ocean, in their order of discovery, and at their correct latitudes. The sites of Kercado, Gavrinis, and Dissignac in Brittany, give much more detail on these and other discoveries. The phases of construction of Stonehenge in England are shown to commemorate the discoveries also.
The most difficult and detailed site reported in the book is American Stonehenge, in New Hampshire, which is shown to be both astronomic and geographic, a teaching and sacrifice center for re-crossing the Atlantic to Europe via the West Azores Islands.
The book ends with explanations of two petroglyphs found in New York, one recording an Egyptian sailing voyage while at anchor on Long Island, and the other, illustrating Phoenician trading routes from the Hudson stone chamber colonies to the Hopewell centers of Ohio. Subsequent finding of Phoenician writing on other nearby stones has substantiated the petroglyph decipherment.
Reinoud de Jonge (a Dutch chemist) and Jay Wakefield (an American biologist) have specialized in the study of megalithic culture.
This insightful volume presents their analysis of a dozen archaeological sites, showing how many petroglyphs are geographic maps. They show how monuments provide numerical data revealing megalithic religion and ancient sailing discoveries in the Atlantic.
For example, numeric picture writing at Loughcrew, Ireland, deciphered by the authors, reveals that these people gave up their efforts to cross the Ocean west of Greenland in 3200 BC. However, decipherment of the petroglyphs at Dissignac, France, shows that they next explored the earth to the east, where they discovered Australia and Alaska.
Subsequently, they found routes across the Atlantic, and built Stonehenge, the monument for the discovery of America.
These decipherments shed light on a number of mysteries in American prehistory, such as the origin of the Olmec civilization, the Michigan copper mines, and the stone chambers of New England.
This is the only book providing solid evidence, reasonable explanations, and comprehensive dating for megalithic petroglyphs and monuments. It will fascinate anyone interested in old religions, little-known petroglyphs, ancient seafaring, voyages of discovery, and the prehistory of Europe and America.
Sites in Europe include Kercado, Gavrinis, Dissignac, Paredes, Chao Redondo, Loughcrew, Stonehenge, and many more.
