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 1998 issue.


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.
