The Irkutsk Geoglyph Field was the first geoglyph discovered using an ancient astronomical map of earth (1-3). An analysis of its position reveals that the geoglyph is bound to the position of the North Pole Star 11,500 years ago, with the star map modified and rotated to an angle defined by the Great Pyramids of Giza, and a scale defined by a series of single line geoglyphs discovered in the various deserts of Northern Africa (1). To the east of the Irkutsk Geoglyph there is however a secondary geoglyph field (1). In this paper the scale and northernmost extent of the geoglyph is analyzed.
Over a 68 paper series, which took two years to complete, the theory that an ancient civilization mapped the earth by using the stars was extensively tested. The most recent papers concentrate on the astronomical data contained within the map and their use to create paleolithic pieces of art, such as the ancient engraved/incised stones, pendants and bones found at many different archaeological sites. These linear artwork samples, which employ simple astronomical values converted to alignment lines (3-15) date back some 400,000 years into the archaeological record, and confirm that the geoglyphs found globally all operate around the half and full sidereal month.
The reason for the central position of the half-sidereal month of 13.66 days in ancient calendars is the ability of this specific value of 13.66 to link to other important known astronomical values to calculate the exact length of the Precession Circle (16); or the value of 365 days in the year (1); or in the case of the Mayan Reset, the sidereal month can be used to explain the exact duration of the Mayan Baktun of 394.25 years (16). The proposed star map created using the Giza Pyramids even explains the reason for the Mayan Reset that occurred at the end of last year (16).
Of all the various results obtained perhaps the most important has been the star maps ability to locate ancient geoglyph fields. The first geoglyph field discovered using the proposed star map (1) was the Irkutsk Geoglyph field (2,3). At this site a circa 15,000 year old pendant was discovered bearing the exact same astronomical pattern as the ground lines observed in the region. This archaeological artifact thus dates the ground pattern to the same time period predicted by astronomical programs – circa 14,000 to 15,000 years old (1).
In this study the geoglyph field to the east of the previously discovered Irkutsk Geoglyph field is now analyzed. This geoglyph is found further north in Sakha.
As with the earlier Irkutsk geoglyph field, the eastern Sakha Republic geoglyph field was only recently discovered by using a star map (1).
The preliminary survey of the Sakha geoglyph employed both Mapquest, and Google Maps. The two sources employ different satellites and the images are taken at different times of the year. In general the Google Earth images are easier to see.
Overall the intent here is to obtain a general very preliminary idea of the extent of the geoglyph field and to locate the regions where the density of lines appear highest. No analysis of the lines for astronomical data is undertaken.
The initial high density site studied is located at Latitude 64.3684, Longitude 116.38916. This is located in the Sakha Republic, and appears to be towards the southernmost extreme of the observed pattern. The image immediately below is a mosaic of multiple Google Earth Map images.
In terms of structure the observed pattern is very similar to the already studied Irkutsk Field (1). However, the alignments appear in this region of the pattern to be aligned similar to the causeways in front of the Pyramids to north and south of due east.
The next task here is to trace the various lines to determine the northernmost extent. The general direction followed by the lines is shown below.
The Latitude and Longitude for each of the points listed are
Point A 64.3684, 116.38916; Point B 64.63741, 116.496964; Point C 64.935471, 116.011505; Point D 65.123017, 115.714188; Point E 65.416588, 117.598343; Point F 65.691084, 118.975754; Point G 65.772081, 119.121323; Point H 66.052323, 119.800758; Point I 66.116624, 119.567642; Point J 66.237407,119.252472; Point K 66.592766, 118.656807; Point L 66.754269,118.356743; Point M 66.836651, 118.210487; Point N 67.107933, 117.700996: Point O; 67.091501, 117.542038; Point P 67.367754, 117.48127; Point Q 67.303459, 117.083359; Point R 67.539281, 117.073059; Point S 67.740418, 117.866478: Point T 68.150354, 118.004494; Point U 68.337418, 117.463417; Point V 68.377431, 117.315445; Point W 68.686399, 117.165413; Point X 68.689768, 114.984283, Point Y 69.812389, 114.66156. All Points drawn here are highlighted in Green. Often the lines travel straight through lakes and over hills and valleys with no change of direction. The northernmost extent of the pattern is at 70.00674, 116.81597 (marked below in red by Point A).
The general remoteness of this region, and the loss of the lines as they travel through ancient floodplains and lakes strongly argues against these lines being modern roads or pipes.
Within this series of locations the second highest density of lines occurred at Point D at latitude 65.123017, longitude 115.714188.
These lines, if they are confirmed to be geoglyphs, are the only potential known geoglyphs within the Arctic Circle. The lines are constructed to the same general pattern as the circa 15,000 year old Irkutsk Geoglyph Field already discovered (1) – this age being based on the pattern being consistent with the linear patterns found on pendants discovered in the same general area (3-15).
At this point the overall length of the various drawn lines when combined is presently unknown, but must easily exceed 1,000 miles.
