Abakan Khakassia Russia Siberia Megaliths - Archaeoastronomy - Valley of Kurgans - Li Kitai - LexiLine Journal 304

To our LexiLine files under Russia at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LexiLine/files
I have added the file abakan.png [the graphic below] which contains my astronomical decipherment of two megaliths near Abakan, Russia.

As anyone can see at http://www.kiravan.com, the area of Abakan in Russia has some tremendous megaliths.

The megaliths of Abakan, Khakassia, Russia are located outside of Abakan in southern Siberia
above western Mongolia, halfway between Moscow and Vladivostok. Specifically, the so-called "Valley of Kurgans" or "Valley of Kings" is located 60 km west of Abakan.

As we can read at http://www.fact-index.com/a/ab/abakan.html
"Abakan (formerly Abakansk) is the capital of Khakassia in Siberia, Russia. It is located on the river Yenisei, 144 m. SSW of Krasnoyarsk, in lat. 54 deg. 20' N., long. 91 deg. 40' E.... Abakansk was a fortified town of Siberia, in the Russian government
of Yeniseisk. It was considered the mildest and most salubrious place in Siberia.

The place is remarkable for certain tumuli (of the Li Kitai) and statues of men from seven to nine feet high, covered with hieroglyphics."
Who were the Li Kitai?

Kit or Kitai is a Russian word meaning a group of stakes or stones.

As noted at http://www.bartleby.com/65/qi/Qitai.html, there is also a town and oasis Qitai (Kitai) in China in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, in the Dzungarian basin.

We are reminded here of the similarly named city Quito in Ecuador: "the present-day site of Quito was inhabited by the Quitus, a tribe from the Quechua civilization.... called the Kingdom of Quito in the Pre-Hispanic period, buildings in this ancient city were made of carved stone and sun-dried brick. Later, Spanish architects incorporated the same materials into their grandiose constructions."

The Quechua were of course the megalith builders of the Americas and we are certain that the Quitus and the Li Kitai were related peoples.

The decipherment that I have uploaded to our files is still provisional, however, since I do not have enough corroborating material from the Abakan site.

I have examined the photo of the megaliths at http://www.kiravan.com depicting the gate to the Valley of the Kurgans and find that there are figures carved on the megaliths together with cupmarks.

The cupmarks on the left smaller megalith would appear to mark Ursa Major. That same megalith has other figures carved on to, including a human face at Ursa Major and an animal face to the right of Ursa Major. To the left of the human face at Ursa Major there seems to be
a large round area marking the North Celestial Pole.

The right larger megalith would seem to mark Camelopardalis viz. Perseus on the other side of the heavenly gate, a gate known as the duat to the ancient Pharaonic Egyptians.

Again, these identifications are provisional and need corroboration down the road.

We wonder whether the name of Abakan or earlier Abakansk derives from the nearby Abakan River and whether that name relates to the Akkadian term Akann or Chinese termn Kwan, names applied to Ursa Major in ancient days.

Vottovaara Serpent Dolmen Karelia - White Sea Russia - Seidas - The Karelian Dolmens - The Pomorians - Ancient Seafarers - Kem - LexiLine Journal 302

Vyacheslav Mizin has drawn my attention to the following page at his website
http://perpettum.narod.ru/arcticmegalith.htm, where he has a photo of an important dolmen at Vottovaara - a dolmen I have labelled "the Vottovaara Serpent Dolmen".


See my drawing of this stone, together with explanation at vottovaara.gif
[the graphic below is vottovaara.png]
which I have added to our LexiLine files online under Russia, Karelia at

The dolmen - for a certainty - has the relief of a serpent on it (in the middle)....

The stone was without question carved by human hand.

The dolmen in my opinion represents the stars of the heavens.

The serpent represents the stars of Hydra in my current interpretation of this megalith and marks the Summer Solstice. This identification is clear.

I interpret the rest of the dolmen for now - but speculatively - as showing a man's (or monkey's) head at Gemini and Orion (with the stars of Canis Major below them) - marking the Vernal Equinox to the right. In Vedic literature, the monkey Hanuman has this position.

At the left, I see Libra as a bull (the bull is later assigned to the stars of Lupus) - marking the Autumn Equinox. I imagine the horns were seen as Libra and the body was seen as Lupus.

This interpretation puts the age of these megaliths at about 3117 BC or earlier.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION on the Karelian Dolmens at Vottovaara

Dolmens in Karelia are known as "Seidas", a Lapp word for them, although it is quite clear that the Lapps (or Saami) had nothing to do with making these seida complexes, their culture indicating no megalithic roots. Seidas is the same as Latvian Setas (long e) meaning fences, but also borders, or marked areas. We see a related term in the megaliths of Ireland at "Ceide" Fields.

Seida complexes are found on Mount Vottovaara in the national park of Paanajarvi in the Kuzova Islands in the White Sea, see http://argonavt.narod.ru/kuzova.html.

For their exact location see http://argonavt.narod.ru/kem-sol.jpg. Vottovaara is ca. 20 km east of the city of Kem in Karelia. See http://www.kareliatour.info/eng/region/division/Kemskiy/

The seidas at Vottovaara are the largest such gathering of dolmens in the Russian north.

The dolmens have been ascribed to the Lapps, but this of course is nonsense. The Lapps are herdsmen, whereas the peoples who put up the megaliths were clearly seafarers.


The local population of the nearby city Kem consists largely of a group of people called Pomorians who are thought to have formed their culture fairly recently on the coast of the White Sea, e.g. in the ancient villages of Gridino and Kalgalaksha.
See http://www.kareliatour.info/eng/region/division/Kemskiy/
It is of course error to think the Pomorians are of recent origin, as linguistic analysis shows us a contrary picture.

As written at
"The long-standing coexistence of Russian and Balto-Finnic inhabitants resulted in the formation of the peculiar North Russian dialect of Zaonezh'e (a peninsula in the north-western part of Lake Onego), characterized by specific features such as ljapan'e (systematic shift of the word stress to the first syllable or preposition)."
But of course, as Latvian shows us, where all words are stressed on the first syllable, this indicates that the original language was also stressed on the first syllable and that loan words from the Russian have been adapted to this first-syllable stress system.

Thus, as written at that same previous website:
"Even though contemporary villagers in Gridino stress that they are 'Russian Pomors', many features of the local dialect give evidence of a Balto-Finnic substratum or, at least, existence of close ties with the Karelians."

It is clear that the Pomorians were seafarers. There is reference to the "ships of Pomorians" at

At http://www.angelfire.com/country/veneti/ToulaevAncestors.html it
is written:
"X - XII c. The Venetic civilization also developed on the southern coast of the Baltic inhabited by Pomors (Pomerans) [Pomeranians], Varii and Rugi. There appeared large religious centers (Arkona, Rhetra) and flourishing trade towns such as Volin (Vinetta) Stargrad, Szczecin. The whole region became known as Vindland."
And, similarly at http://www.fact-index.com/p/po/pomeranians.html we can read:
"Pomeranians are a group of ... tribes living in historical region of
Pomerania. They used to speak dialects belonging to Lekhitic branch
of West Slavic languages. Their direct descendants are Kashubians."
Indeed, the origin of the term Pomeranian or Pomorian as we can read at
is seen as the combination of the words Po morje as in German üb-ers Meer
meaning "on the ocean", i.e. those who travel by boat on the sea.

Indeed, on the Baltic, according to http://www.fact-index.com/p/po/pomerania.html
we find concerning Pomerania that:
"Pomerania (Pomeranian/Kashubian: Pòmòrze, Polish: Pomorze,
German: Pommern, Latin: Pomerania, Pomorania,) is the historical region on
the south coasts of the Baltic Sea centered around the mouth of River
Oder on the present-day border between Poland and Germany, reaching
from River Reknitz in the west to River Vistula in the east."
There is thus is strong evidence here that the megalith builders were ancient seafarers with an ancient presence both on the White Sea and Baltic Sea (in Latvian, the latter term "Baltic Sea" means in fact "White Sea" and Balt means "white").

As for the term Karelia, the Latvian term Karālis (long 2nd "a") means "king".

Have we found here in Karelia - on the White Sea - the most ancient origin of the megalith builders and their art, as I have already suggested in previous decipherments of the rock drawings on the White Sea?

The German Loreley Cliff - Coma Berenices - LexiLine Journal 301

[The decipherment below shows the Loreley from the right side, looking down river on the Rhine. This past year (2009 in September) I was able to make a splendid photograph onsite, which is quite spectactular for its megalithic results. See our update to this file showing the frontal profile at: The German Tale of the Loreley is "Megalithically True".]

To our LexiLine files at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LexiLine/files/Germany/ I have added the file loreley.png [the graphic below]

It is a decipherment of the [right side of the] world famed Loreley (Lorelei) Cliff,

showing that this famous cliff, around which many ancient legends circulate, was carved in the Neolithic Period (Stone Age), having one large head of a woman with long hair (Loreley) carved on it (surely using much of the stone as natural formation) as well as several male heads (who seem to be the fishermen of Loreley legend caught in the stone) and a bird (Corvus, below Coma Berenices).

Coma Berenices was known as the "locks of hair" in ancient days. Eratosthenes called these stars "Ariadne's Hair". Although mainstream historians of astronomy cluelessly scratch their heads about the importance assigned to Coma Berenices in ancient days, Coma Berenices is in fact important because its stars mark the North Galactic Pole - which the ancients clearly recognized.

Legend states that the Loreley is found below "the seven maidens" and indeed, Coma Berenices is composed of seven main stars (see Richard Hinckley Allen, Star Names, p. 1 70, quoting Thompson, who quotes Hygin), although the seven stars could also be those of Ursa Major.

I was able to decipher the Loreley Cliff because of an excellent Associated Press (AP) photo of the Loreley found this weekend in the local newspaper, Trierischer Volksfreund (Nr. 213, September 11/12, 2004), reporting in two articles by Wolfgang Kroener and Rüdiger Polster on two Loreley exhibitions now being held in Koblenz and Bingen, Germany.

The sculpted heads of the Loreley Cliff are clearly seen upon that AP photo.

This identification of the Loreley as Coma Berenices fits in perfectly with the other megalithic German sites identified in my book, Stars, Stones and Scholars.
