7,000 Year Old Observatory found in Bavaria
Theosophy maintains that there was advanced civilization on earth in
days now long lost to history. So every time a news item comes along that
indicates more knowledge than previously thought in some ancient time -
it is quite consistent with Theosophy but may require an adjustment to the
standard view of man's history. This happens time and again. Here is an
item reported in "21st Century Science and Technology" Spring
A team of archaeologists, headed by geophysicist Helmut Becker,
has discovered a 7,000-year-old solar observatory in Bavaria
of "unbelievable precision," according to a report
in the Feb. 14 German daily Frankfurter Rundschau. The elliptical
constructions at the Landau-Meisternthal observatory site were
used as a solar calendar, to determine the Solstices and equinoxes.
the newspaper report notes that "the neolithic engineers
must have had a knowledge of mathematics, astronomy, and geometry
far exceeding that of most people today." There are similariites
to the Stonehenge constructions in Britain, but the Bavarian
observatory is about 2,000 years older.
