According to a scientific analysis, rock paintings dating back to 40 years with star maps and rock paintings containing them show a remarkable application of advanced astronomy in the past.
Rock art from ancient times can contain advanced astronomical representations. The star map was once thought to be archaic animal symbols. New research has shown that our forefathers had a profound astronomical knowledge of the early rock art. This suggests that knowledge was not much different between today and the old ice age.
Star charts from the past Scientists were able to observe how the stars changed their positions in the sky and discovered that ancient humans had great control over the passing of time. This was demonstrated by art discovered in many parts Europe that isn’t just animal images. And it’s because these figures are actually depictions of star constellations in the night sky. They were used as a way to commemorate, date, or symbolise important events. According to researchers at the University of Edinburgh, ancient peoples fully comprehended the impact of progressive changes in the Earth’s axis of rotation
It was the ancient Greeks who first discovered the phenomenon known to be called the precession or equinoxes. Martin Sweatman, researcher, stated that these results support the theory of multiple comet impact during human evolution. As a result, it’s conceivable that they’ll change the way people think about prehistoric civilizations. This research was based upon cave explorations in Turkey and France. The art was chemically dated to determine its age.
It was originally intended to depict wild animals but turned out to be an illustration of constellations. A high-level understanding of constellations Computer tools enabled scientists to predict the positions of stars in the paintings. It was about deciphering the constellations as they appeared in past. According to researchers, cave paintings are compelling evidence that ancient people used a complex form timekeeping that was based on astronomical calculations
All of this was possible, even though cave drawings were separated by thousands of years. For example, scientists determined that the Lion-Man from the Hohlenstein-Stadel Cave is the world’s oldest sculpture, dating back to 38,000 BC. This is compatible with the old time system. The figurine represents the catastrophic collision of an asteroids 11,000 years ago that triggered the Younger Dryas Event. This is when the weather suddenly cools. How is it possible for early humans to have such an advanced understanding of constellations? It’s still a mystery. Without modern technology, the idea would seem absurd.
