LexiLine Journal #136 - 2003 : Stromberg Schindeldorf between Mainz & Koblenz Cancer Germany Megaliths



in our files I have uploaded


Schindeldorf in Stromberg, Hunsrück is not only the site of the golf
course upon which I play golf, but – in an ironic twist of fate – it
is also the location of Cancer in the ancient Germanic astronomical
survey. Without golf, this site would be an unknown.

Indeed, Schindeldorf – which means "shingle [ceiling] village"
probably for the roof-shape of Cancer, has no fewer than 18
Hügelgräber, i.e. Dolmens or Cairns, some of which are freely
visible in the rough or trees next to the fairways – and from which
one has a free drop if the golf ball happens to find its way into
them. In addition there are several free-standing megaliths on the
golf course.

As Otto Huth relates, Stromberg is sometimes rendered in literature
as the mythical Glasberg, which is the highest of the cosmological
mountains being directly under the Pole Star at the center of the

This of course fits Cancer, for the line from the center of Cancer
passes through the reddish-yellow star alpha in Ursa Major (all the
other major stars in Ursa Major are whitish) to the Pole Star

Since there is no bright star at that pole star point, the ancients
used the star alpha on the Big Dipper instead. When the song "Follow
the Drinking Gourd" was sung by fleeing slaves in America prior to
the Civil War, it was the star alpha on the Big Dipper which which
was intended to be followed – it always points north.

Stromberg marks Cancer as the mountain "roof" below that star.
