LexiLine Journal #114 - 2003 : Externsteine Hydra Summer Solstice ca. 3117 BC


Welcome!

To our Germany file at

I have now uploaded

showing how one of the gigantic sandstone cliff megaliths at the
Externsteine shows the stars of Hydra as the figure of a serpent or
an eel.

Hydra marked the Summer Solstice ca. 3117 BC and I think that these
megaliths go back to about that period, also based on the style used
in carving the megaliths.

The lady pictured in
externsteine.gif
referred to in the previous newsletter
reminds very much in style of the lady pictured at Creevykeel in
Ireland (especially the animal pelt fur thrown over her shoulder,
just as at Creevykeel), and Creevykeel is acknowledged by mainstream
archaeologists to be one of the oldest sites in Ireland, surely
dating to ca. 3000 BC at least. The large carvings at the
Externsteine will stem from about the same megalithic period.

(I do not refer here to the one quite modern carving on one of the
stones, which must derive from the turn of the millennium after 1
BC).
