Studies of 2005-2008


The book continues the books of the authors of "New chronology of Egypt" (2003), "Ancient zodiacs of Egypt and Europe" (2005) and "Ancient zodiacs of Egypt and Europe" (2009). In «New chronology of Egypt" the authors for the first time proposed a method of full decoding and absolute astronomical dating of the Ancient Egyptian zodiacs. It appeared that the method is applicable also to European zodiacs. As a result the authors dated except the Egyptian also a number of European medieval zodiacs.

In the present book the authors continue an interesting and important for the chronology study of the ancient zodiacs. Astronomical datings of the zodiacs, received in 2005-2006, are studied. Totally until now around 40 ancient zodiacs – Egyptian, Russian and European are dated. All these datings are listed in the book.

The book doesn't require any special knowledge from a reader. It is aimed for everyone interested in the application of natural-scientific methods to history and chronology and in astronomy and ancient astral symbols.
