Via Archaeo News, the International Herald Tribune , Megalithic.co.uk and especially
the Monterey Herald and RotherwasRibbon.com (the latter two of which have pictures), we discover that archaeologists have found a ca. 65-yard (ca. 60 meter) serpentine figure on a mound near Mondiford and the juncture of the rivers Wye and Lugg in Herefordshire, England. The 3-D serpentine figure, which has subsequently been named the "Rotherwas Ribbon", a name long applied to the area in which it was found, is perhaps more accurately called by its alternative name, "The Rotherwas Serpent", being similar to the Serpent Mound in Ohio in the USA, the largest such serpent mound in North America.
There is no question in our mind that the Rotherwas Serpent is a hermetic ("as above, so below") representation on land of a stellar figure seen by the ancients in the stars of the heavens, i.e. a heavenly serpent. Indeed, the name "roth-er-was" surely involves a confusion with and mixture of Gaelic naeth(er) "serpent" and Gaelic ooir wass "subsoil", i.e. "the serpent mound".
As I have written on page 1 of my book, Stars Stones and Scholars :
"All Neolithic sites in England and Wales, as marked on the Ordnance Survey map of Ancient Britain, form a map projection of the stars of the northern and southern heavens, with the center of the system at Herefordshire Beacon near Midsummer Hill and Wynd's Point."
Since the Rotherwas Serpent is located a mere 20 miles or so away from the Herefordshire Beacon, it is likely that the Rotherwas Serpent (dated to be older than the British Camp at the Herefordshire Beacon) is an alternative, probably older mark for the center of this system at the stars of Draco, the celestial serpent.
If this were actually so, the Rotherwas Serpent would be of incalculable value for the history of Ancient Britain and for the history of astronomy.
We read now with horror that there are plans to destroy the site by building a road through it :
"The Rotherwas Ribbon,named for the area in which it was found, lies in the path of theplanned highway and will be encased in a protective structure beneath the road once it is built."
There is already a Rotherwas Ribbon Campaign website established to save the Rotherwas Serpent and we can only hope that it will successful. Please go to that website and see what you can do to help to stop this madness in the United Kingdom (and elsewhere) of the destruction of invaluable ancient megalithic archaeological sites.
