First "Calendar" found in Scotland

Postby Gwion » 15 Jul 2013, 10:41

10000 year old “calendar” pits have been excavated in a Scottish field. ... d-23286928
They are thousands of years older than the previous Mesopotamian earliest time-measuring monuments.

Serously interesting. Let's hope they can get the resources to really investigate this site.

Our ancestors were amazing for what they accomplished given the resources they had. I hope the stories of sites like this can get people to understand where we came from, and want to honour that time and place, and those people.
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on.
