Yes, they are all over the place.  They are worth exploring.

 

 

Yes, I think most peoples came up with the idea that a  bag is 'handy' for  'holding '   stuff  .

 

 

  I have seen bas-reliefs where they actually dip the pine cone into them before dousing humans with what they contain. 

 

​You mean they pinecone acts as an aspergillus  ?   Yes, I seem to remeber seeing that   .....  <squints >  is that what the fish guy up there is using, and the dude top left ?  . 

 

What do they contain ?    Hopefully something better than 'Holy Water '

 

Old school doctors used to carry the "doctor's bag" with them at all times.  The one my grandaunt never left home without looked like this:

 

 

 

Considering the pine cone involvement, I think those alien gods were "doctoring" our species to their specs. 

 

 

With a pine cone ?   ...   I would have thought   ' alien doctors'   that could   'doctor species to their specs' j would have bought  better medical equipment with them  !

All right Brian ... I am getting a BIT sus on you Yanks !   This giant petroglyph  'appeared' recently ,  is near a large  U.S. linked and controlled military base ( with large machinery ) 

 

and ! .... 

 

Several anonymous press releases which appeared following the discovery led to the suggestion that the Marree Man was created by people from the United States. The releases said "your State of SA", "Queensland Barrier Reef" and mentioned Aborigines "from the local Indigenous Territories", terms not used by Australians. The press releases also mentioned the Great Serpent in Ohio, which is not well known outside the US. But it has been conjectured that these features of the press releases may have been red herrings, inserted to provide an illusion of American authorship. "

 

 

I know  the sort of things you guys get up to here   ..... in our  'outback '

The pine cone is a metaphor, dude.  Stands for the pineal gland.  Stands for take a wild guess what in the Vatican:

 

fontana-della-pigna-pine-cone-fountain-s

 

 

The "handbag" is also a metaphor.  Might not be a handbag at all, some depictions look more like a bucket. 

 

Reading symbolic images verbatim is counterproductive.  Recognizing the symbology in its ancient symbiotic embrace with ideology, anything but.

Okay  Got it  ,   they dipped pineal glands in the bucket and sprinkled 'stock species' with annunakai alien gods "doctoring" our species to their specs    stuff .

Yeah ....  a handbag would get soggy  if was supposed to carry liquid  .... and ruin the lipstick .

Agreed.

Thanks Brian,this old but new.

The Serpent Mound may have been designed in accord with the pattern of stars composing the constellation Draco. The star pattern of the constellation Draco fits with fair precision to the Serpent Mound, with the ancient Pole Star, Thuban (α Draconis), at its geographical center within the first of seven coils from the head. The fact that the body of Serpent Mound follows the pattern of Draco may support various theses. Putnam's 1865 refurbishment of the earthwork could have been correctly accomplished in that a comparison of Romain's or Fletcher and Cameron's maps from the 1980s show how the margins of the Serpent align with great accuracy to a large portion of Draco. Some researchers date the earthwork to around 5,000 years ago, based on the position of Draco, through the backward motion of precessionary circle of the ecliptic when Thuban was the Pole Star. Alignment of the effigy to the Pole Star at that position also shows how true north may have been found. This was not known until 1987 because lodestone and modern compasses give incorrect readings at the site.[16]

Astrobleme Edit

The mound is located on the site of a classic astrobleme, an ancient meteorite impact structure. One of the strongest clues to the impact origin of this structure is in the pattern of disruption of sedimentary strata. In the center of the structure, strata have been uplifted several hundred feet, in much the same way that the central uplifts of lunar craters such as Copernicus were formed. In 2003 geologists from Ohio State government and the University of Glasgow (Scotland) corroborated the meteorite impact origin of the structure at Serpent Mound. They had studied core samples collected at the site in the 1970s. Further analyses of the rock core samples indicated the impact occurred during the Permian Period, about 248 to 286 million years ago; thus, all topographic expression of the impact would have been long since erased.[17]

This is one of the few places in North America where an astrobleme has been identified. While some scholars speculate that prehistoric Native Americans may have placed the mound in relation to this geological anomaly, at the time of construction of the mound there was nothing visible at ground level that would have captured their attention.

Recent history Edit

The Serpent Mound was first mapped by Euro-Americans as early as 1815. In 1846 it was surveyed for the Smithsonian Institution by two Chillicothe men, Ephraim G. Squier and Edwin Hamilton Davis. Their book Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley (1848), published by the Smithsonian, included a detailed description and map of the serpent mound.

Preservation Edit

Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley fascinated many across the country, including Frederic Ward Putnam of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University. Putnam spent much of his career lecturing and publishing on the Ohio mounds, specifically the Serpent Mound. When he visited the Midwest in 1885, he found that plowing and development were destroying many of the mounds. In 1886, with help from a group of women in Boston, Putnam raised funds to purchase 60 acres (240,000 m2) at the Serpent Mound site for preservation. The purchase also contained three conical mounds, a village site and a burial place.[18] Serpent Mound is listed as a "Great Wonder Of the Ancient World" by National Geographic Magazine.[19]

Originally purchased on behalf of the Trustees of the Peabody Museum, in 1900 the land and its ownership were granted to the Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society (a predecessor of the present Ohio Historical Society).

The Ohio Historical Society designated the Arc of Appalachia Preserves system, a project of Highlands Sanctuary, Inc., as the managing agency of Serpent Mound [14][20][21]

Following an instance of vandalism in 2015, more security cameras and protective gates were added.[22][23]

Excavation Edit
After raising sufficient funds, in 1886 Putnam returned to the same site. He worked for four years excavating the contents and burial sequences of both the Serpent Mound and two nearby conical mounds. After his work was completed and his findings documented, Putnam worked on restoring the mounds to their original state.

One of the conical mounds that was excavated by Putnam (1890)[24] yielded a principal burial which has grave goods that associate it with the Adena period (800 BC-100 BC). He also found and excavated nine intrusive burials in the mound. Additionally, Putnam discovered an ash bed north of the conical mound that contained many prehistoric artifacts. After the excavation, the conical mound was reconstructed and is today standing south of the parking lot at Serpent Mound State Memorial.

In 2011, excavations were undertaken prior to installation of utility lines at Serpent Mound State Memorial. The excavations focused on three sides of the conical mound that Putnam (1890) had excavated. In addition to concentrations of artifacts, an ashy soil horizon was excavated north of the conical mound. The ashy soil horizon had prehistoric artifacts associated with them. It is believed that the ashy deposit is a remnant of the ash bed that Putnam (1890) excavated. Wood charcoal from within the remnant ash bed was carbon dated to A.D. 1041-1211, the Fort Ancient period. Because the burials in the conical mound dated to the Early Woodland period, the Fort Ancient period dating of the remnant ash bed is suggestive of ritual reuse of the circum mound area.[25]


Draco coils around the north celestial pole, as depicted in Urania's Mirror, a set of constellation cards published in London c.1825

Draco is a constellation in the far northern sky. Its name is Latin for dragon. It was one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd century astronomer Ptolemy, and remains one of the 88 modern constellations today. The north pole of the ecliptic is in Draco.[1] Draco is circumpolar (that is, never setting), and can be seen all year from northern latitudes.
