The connection of the Miami Circle to the Great Lakes region was recently made by Florida archaeologists who found hematite point projectiles near the Miami Circle site.
One of these iron oxide projectiles, according to the archaeologists,
stems from the Great Lakes region ca. 5000-6000 years ago. See
This fits exactly with my chronological dating of the earth survey. It also meshes well with my hypothesis that the site at Peterborough, Canada, was a center of geodetic survey ca. 3117 BC, tied in to the Miami site. The Argonauts came southward from Peterborough.
I am now uploading 4 new files to the folder Ancient Geodetics [Update 2006, now in the folder North America - USA Canada]:
These 4 files present my decipherments of the Miami Circle, which was discovered at Brickell Point, Florida only a few years ago.
My decipherments show the Miami Circle to represent the position of Hydra in the geodetic survey of 3117 BC and also show the figures, stars and constellations represented by the Miami Circle.
Let me say that my decipherments here are still PROVISIONAL because the photographic sources at my disposal are limited.
When I am able to get exact photos - large and small - of the site, then I will be able to decipher the site exactly. The current decipherments still contain a lot of guesswork on my part due to incomplete and inexact sources and should be treated accordingly.
miamibig.tif shows ONLY the large figures which can be seen on initial aerial
photographs taken of the site. These are:
1. the serpent of heaven, as Hydra and Draco encircling the Milky Way (the Milky Way is marked by that "circle" of holes, all of which represent figures of fish, birds, animals etc.)
2. Man and Woman as Ursa Major and Cassiopeia
3. Ursa Minor as an axe (or hammer)
4. Leo and surrounding constellations as a large cat head
5. A mouse (?) as Cepheus (i.e. the cat chases the mouse across the heavens - an early version
of Walt Disney's Tom and Jerry?)
These large figures - whence my giving the name miamibig.tif - must have been carved first. Thereafter, the ancients must have added smaller figures and stars and constellations. Some of the artwork is truly unique, though it bears the same stamp as the artwork at Kents Cavern - perhaps one person drew the design and the others carved it out? In any case, perhaps the famed Florida Sun accounts for some of the material.
The circle is surrounded by faces apparently representing the artists who made this site and there are several instances of strong fertility art at the rim of the picture as well as in the center
which I will not go into further. If you are able to see these instances, fine. Mankind has not changed much in this regard in 5000 years.
A more detailed analysis of the figures and astronomy of the Miami Circle can be seen at
which shows the decipherment of the entire Miami Circle in detail
miamisw.tif and miaminw.tif
which show my decipherment of the respective Southwest and Northwest
corners of the circle, with the NW corner being particularly
instructive. These decipherments are not complete, since the
available photographic material is incomplete.
The SE and SW corners have long been "under construction" by the
archaeologists and thus not photographically accessible for detailed
