The best conclusion to a mystery is proof that the answer is unraveling but the end is not yet reached. Here we have silver medallions which were found in a mound in Scotland called Norrie’s Law located at Latitude: N 56.254847° and Longitude: W 2.954534°.  (56.254847 + .2954534 = 56.550) There was a large amount of silver, some Roman coins and some other elegant items such as very thick silver chains and crescent shaped articles similar to those found in Ohio mounds. This would indicate some of the “garbage” at both distant places is very similar.

By studying the medallions we meet Baal again. We find the god Dagda spelled out in Luwian Hieroglyphs as Dog-ta or number 79 and the symbol for the Shepard. Thus, we may not as of yet understand how but we can presume 79 guided them. We also find numbers we saw at Newark earthworks and even more compelling we find numbers from the Weld-Blundell Prism. This prism is a cuneiform text which contains the Ancient King List from the Deluge forward. All this suggests the mounds were part of a much larger world culture.

And so too in this previously untranslated Pictish Stele from Aberlemno, Scotland we find understanding and confirmation far beyond what we had hoped at the beginning. Prominently placed at the top is the Luwian Hieroglyph for Thunder. Its form reminds us of the Great Serpent Mound, Ohio with its 4 loops in one direction and 3 in the other which creates 43 and 2 x 43 is 86. But on this stone the eye is within one of the loops. Add this one eye to one loop in one direction and two in the other and we form the number 112 or 2 x 56.

Indeed, the stone even shows a Proto-Canaanite/Hebrew/Phoenician letter H at the bottom which has value 8. And to what does 8 refer? English creates a pun of the word eight. It is ate. Are they saying it ate the planet just as the Beltane-Newark story tells? But there is a dot punched into the upper line. Is it to be read 8 – 1 or 80 -1 = 79? Or does it mean the grid of measurement (longitude and latitude) was damaged? But on other stones 6 lines extend down from the H. This gives 8 + 6 = 86 for the Sun. There may be lines here as well but the weather takes from us what we would know. This H is called the “comb” in Pictish art descriptions.

There is a circle with a handle that is called “the mirror” above the H. We have seen this image before and understand its meaning. The stele then speaks of a great comet that thundered into the planet leaving a wound in the Earth which is portrayed identically on the stele as in the Great Circle of Newark. Indeed, this same symbolism can be found in other places. It also appears in the Book of Kells from Ireland (See image in this post). We see the mirror and the H again clearly indicating a break in the box or grid.

The numbers 2311 and 33 are just as prominent here as on the medallion. The two and three reminds us of the layout at Newark with its reference to 23 and in reverse 32 for the Arctic Circle. Here we might sum the 2 and 3 to 5 while the 3 and 3 sum to 6 giving us familiar 56. The sum 6 reminds us further of the 6 OCD of translation of the circle-octagon into the circle-square of Newark. The concept of the translation is dominant in this image between the two identical circles showing a realistically layered planet with a core.  There is more to understand such as the riddle as to how 79 guides them.

A whole new way of reading history lays before us.

The explanation of the Oval at the Newark Earthworks in Ohio is simple but of exceptional debate. We need to ask what elements in the Beltane story, Newark Earthworks and the Newark Decalogue have we left out? We have discussed the possibility that the oval was once filled seasonally with water. We have discussed how the Decalogue Stone appears to be a little ark. We might recall that the Oval is the shape of the egg at the Great Serpent Mound. In that respect, keeping with the story then Baal may be the serpent and the Oval would be another representation of the Earth since in fact the planet is just sightly oval not round. We have discussed the finding of meteoric iron and crescent shapes and the idea that the Great Circle shows a sideways impact of a comet into the Earth. Could the Oval be a further description? It would have been nice if they had just wrote it out in plain Old English so we would not have to guess. Ahhh, did they?

Recall the overall layout gave us the idea of 23 32 or “keg Baal.”  But 23 degrees 30′ is in fact the limit of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. The center of these two circles are the poles which relates back to the maypole.

Newark Oval as drawn by D. WyrickWe might ask what else the Ancients tried to portray here. All three maps of the site, Burks’, Squier’s and Wyrick’s, depict the oval with a U shaped appendage to the west. There are also several strange paths with bump-outs to the west. Is it possible that this large oval and projections are letters or words? It is possible that the east side of the oval had a similar appendage as on the west that has worn away with time and creek flooding. This would make the Oval similar in concept to the Luwian Hieroglyph shown below. This glyph is unnamed but is associated with the sound “la.” 1

Luwian symbol #445.

Luwian symbol #445.

This form of writing called Luwian or Hittite Hieroglyphs is from the area of Hattusa in present day region of Anatola, Turkey and northern Syria. Evidence that this writing dates from third and early second millennia BC exists. There is no evidence of its use after 7th century BC per academia.2 Its use has been previously demonstrated at Loughcrew, Ireland3 which is believed by some to be much older than the 5500 year old Knowth Tomb, Ireland where several examples have been demonstrated.4 An example of Luwian Hieroglyphics will be shown at the conclusion of this series from a much later period.

Oval with Hieroglyphic Words notedIt would seem this symbol of a circle with two ears is not the only Hieroglyph to be found at Newark. Since Wyrick’s map is believed to be the most accurate, the Oval portion of his map is redrawn here for our study. A comparison of the simple geometric figures with Luwian Hieroglyphs produces a translation as we see in this image.5 Three words are written out. The main oval is Symbol number 445 with sound “la.” Attached at the bottom is the line pronounced “ra,” Symbol number 383. Off the side of Ra is a hump or Symbol number 209 or 210 and sound “i” or “ia” which gives the word: La- Ra- I.

The middle set of lines with the circle and dot is Scutella 402 (Latin for shield) pronounced “sa”. The line beneath is “ra,” Symbol number 383. This forms the word Sa-Ra.

The third word is a combination of the hump out “i” and “ra” to form I-Ra.

We need a translation of “Larai Sare Ira.” How fortunate! This is written in English, Old English that is! 6 7

Larai provides these possibilities: lær = empty; læran = to teach (to fill the mind of someone who is empty); lar = lore, history; lareow = teacher; leorian = to vanish, die, become empty; lyre = hurt, lure; and leger = lair, lying, grave.

Sa-Ra provides: sar = to sear, or sare = sore. And I-Ra could be irre or ierre which means fierce, angry or ire.

The sentence then becomes “Ire sore lair” or in modern terms “An angry sore, an emptiness.” This provides us with a meaning for the Oval. It represents the place where we might presume the event of Bael-teon occurred or where the comet they are referring to as Baal impacted.

Is this sore in southern Ohio? Is it the .8 mile crater that forms the hills into strange sheared plains? Would this event motivate people from half way around the world to seek it out? Not likely. The construction so close to the creek so the Oval can be filled with water suggests they are referring to a watery grave and to have drawn the attention of the ancient world it must have been a significantly larger impact. What event do we find described world-wide that everyone scoffs at?
