In the heart of America along the upper Arkansas River, in some of her most remote sandstone canyons, suspected consonantal Ogham inscriptions survive alongside constellation maps and precision sundials marking the equinoxes, the summer solstice and summertime cross quarters Beltane and Lughnasad. Native Americans knew their skies, too. But this rock art seems to have been left by Celtic sailors with a mission to explore far beyond the coastal regions of the New World a thousand years or more before Columbus. Most archaeologists consider such conjectures heresy, as it suggests a wider diffusion of trans-oceanic cultures in ancient times than they are prepared to accept. However, not all explorers colonized. Yet, it appears these forgotten Celtic sailors memorialized their inland excursions with sophisticated, captioned heliolithics for regulating calendars intrinsically to the planet's annual cycles.

An Interesting Concept

Its becoming more and more clear that voyages from the old world to the new world occurred before Columbus. Roman ship wrecks, Viking settlements, Chinese maps, and now this. It makes sense when you think about it. There was really not change in technology from ancient times to the days of Columbus. I wish there were more podcasts like this.
