The Sky Disk of Nebra - A Solar Eclipse - LexiLine Journal 350

At my Ancient World blog

I have a new posting about the Sky Disk of Nebra
which can be summarized as follows:

It is the English version of an original article by me in German which first appeared recently under the title: Die Himmelsscheibe von Nebra : Beweisführung und Deutung in the periodical Efodon-Synesis, Issue 2, March/April 2005, Volume 18, No. 68.

The major argument presented in the article is that the current interpretation of the Nebra Sky Disk is prima facie wrong in interpreting the Nebra Sky Disk to show the night sky.

The Nebra Sky Disk depicts a solar boat but the Sun is not in this boat. Indo-European evidence indicates unequivocally that the Sun was seen in ancient days to be in the solar boat at night, but not during the day. Hence, the Nebra Sky Disk shows the sky during the day and thus the Sky Disk can only depict a solar eclipse.
