LexiLine Journal #112 - 2003 : Externsteine Extern Stones North Celestial Pole Megaliths Germany

Welcome!

.


As a logical consequence of my map of the ancient geodetic survey of
Germany, the famed Externsteine in Germany near Detmold represent
the North Celestial Pole, i.e. the Pole Star in the ancient German
astronomical survey.

The name of the Externsteine has correctly been said by some to
derive from the German word "Stern" meaning "star" so that
Externsteine is simply a small change from Sternsteine, meaning "the
Star Stones" which indeed they are, being the most amazing megaliths
in all of Europe - just in terms of their sheer size.

Compare
eXternsteine and
Sternsteine (Star Stones) for the similarity of the two terms.

These ancient Star Stones are of a particular kind of natural
sandstone which the ancients then carved to suit their purposes at
the site where they stand. It is very clear that the entire
sandstone cliff must have been carved - including removal of
inbetween sections - to make individual figures, a gigantic task.

The tallest of these stones is 38 meters (some write 37.5 meters),
or if you will over 100 feet tall. The stones are truly gigantic
stones, MEGALITHS, in every sense of the word.

I will soon upload drawings showing which stars these ancient stones
represent and from what time period.
