LexiLine Journal #142 - 2003 : Loughcrew Ireland Stone 19 Cairn L Carnbane West Megalithic Decipherment

This is the Decipherment of Stone 19 at Loughcrew Cairn L Carnbane West

At http://www.astronomy.ca/3340eclipse/
Paul Griffin claimed to have deciphered Stone 19 at Loughcrew Cairn
L Carnbane West in Ireland as the world's oldest solar eclipse
recorded in stone. Although it is a heroic effort and although Paul
is to be applauded for seeing that the marks on stones are
astronomical and represent stars - he should definitely continue in
this path - his interpretation in this case is in error.

In fact, Stone 19 at Cairn L in Loughcrew represents the stars of
Serpens Caput, Ophiuchus, and Serpens Cauda, as I show at the
uploaded file loughcrew19L.gif

We see from my decipherment clearly how the shape of this stone
developed as a head marking the large hole in the Milky Way at this

The two sworls on Stone 19 at Loughcrew Cairn L do not, as Paul
claims, represent the Sun and the Moon in an eclipse dated to
November 30, 3340 BC, although the stars in this region are "close",
but not exactly on point.

Note also that Paul's diagram of Cairn L shows it clearly to be the
head and neck of a man with stone 19 at the eye (round blue) of the
figure. Even the mouth of the figure is clearly marked by a
horizontal stone extending into the cairn.

Why do we as adults no longer see the stick figures we used to make
and delight in as children?

Note also that the top of the figure points toward Sagittarius and
the center of the Milky Way.

The major error made by Paul is forgivable since he has followed a
long-standing error made by the mainstream archaeologists. Academics
have long paid the greatest of attention to sworls (whorls) on the
stones, ignoring the cupmarks. But the sworls in fact - perhaps
fittingly - generally represent "nothing". The sworls on stones
represent empty vortexes of space - force fields if you will - with
few or no stars - I first discovered this on the Stone of
Drumtroddan (Orion's Drum tread-on) in Scotland, which represents
