Your Daily Giant 1/20/2013

"Although documented for over 150 years, archaeology still hasn't figured out why most Ohio Hopewell earthworks were built, how they were built or when they were built." Dr. Mark Lyncott, Midwest Archaeological Center Lincoln Nebraska. The Great Serpent Mound is a 1,348 foot long prehistoric effigy mound located on a plateau of the Serpent Mound crater along the Ohio Brush Creek in Adams County, Ohio. It was built on the most intense magnetic anomaly in Ohio, the site of an ancient meteor strike and the intersection of several fault lines. Conventional Archaeology dates it to the Fort Ancient period of 1,070 A.D. but that is certainly disputed. Most likely the Fort Ancient culture helped to maintain the sacred site and where not the original builders. Hopi and other Native American oral traditions date it much earlier.
The coils of the serpent are aligned to the two yearly equinoxes and solstices. I had a chance to attend a lecture by Ross Hamilton and Jeffery Wilson about the serpent mound and was awe struck. They showed Archimedean, Euclidian and Pythagorean geometric principles imbedded in the earthworks of Ancient America. It was a jaw dropping presentation showing a level of mathematical, geometric and astronomical knowledge rivaling the Mayans. Ross has written several books about the great serpent mound including "Star Mounds: Legacy of a Native American Mystery, where he makes the case that a massive Grand Zodiac once existed on the ground with the Great Serpent as the middle of it. This same Grand Zodiac was thought to have once existed around the legendary Glastonbury. From Chapter 8 The Ecliptic Plane and a Native American Zodiac, "Viewing it as though it were in the sky as a centerpiece of a living solar system, we may begin to grasp the nearly superhuman effort put into the planning and execution of the stunning organization of temple-like structures surrounding it, spanning no less than three states including Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky."
I went to the lecture by Ross and Jeffery with an interest in megaliths in the Northeast, the works of the Mound Builders and a long list of Giant skeleton accounts from New England that I had unearthed looking for answers. What I found was that Ross has studied the Giant phenomena for years and worked with Native American elder and scholar Vine Deloria writing "A Tradition of Giants". The synchronicity made my head spin and it keeps happening. Ross and I and several others have been collaborating in an effort to create a database of accounts and bring this information to the public. I wanted to thank Ross for all his hard work, inspiration and dedication.
Examples of civilizations that possessed a much higher level of connection, cooperation and care than ours are sorely needed. You can find a Tradition of Giants at the Ancient American Magazine bookstore. The same strange occurrences that I encountered litter the pages such as double rows of teeth, massive jawbones etc... written in a very competent, compelling and scholarly way. As for the giant of the day I will make it brief.
