Connemara, in the west of County Galway, consists of a broad peninsula between Killary Harbor and Kilkieran Bay with a laced network of lakes and is considered one of the most beautiful regions in Ireland. Its scenic coast is made up of a number of peninsulas that form picturesque craggy mountain peaks, and megalithic tombs surround its main town, Clifden. Traditionally divided into North and South Connemara by the majestic mountains of the Twelve Bens range, Connemara is marked by the boundary of the Invermore River, with expansive beaches. The region is recognizable for the breathtaking contrasts of sky, sea, land and bog." [emphasis and linksadded]

Landscape Archaeology in Ancient Wisconsin: Dane County's Effigy Mounds and the Megaliths as Cosmological Maps

Dane County's effigy mounds are a world wonder:
by David Medaris at
"Robert Birmingham was touring Ireland when he had 'a sort of epiphany.' He was visiting megaliths — large, ancient stone structures exemplified by England's Stonehenge. 'It occurred to me,' he recalls, 'that there was a connection between megaliths and the mounds here,' in Dane County [Wisconsin]....

... the massive earthworks amounted to vast 'cosmological maps,' Birmingham says."

Birmingham's theory supports the theory by Andis Kaulins in Stars Stones and Scholars that such megalithic sites were land survey monuments sited and sighted by ancient astronomy. See also

Cup and Ring Marks and the Mathematics of Ancient Carvings

Mathematics of ancient carvings reveals lost language - life - 01 April 2010 - New Scientist:

Kate Ravilious writes about the use of computer analysis to analyze undeciphered scripts, a method which we support - as long as it is combined with traditional methods which must be used as a check and a balance on the results - since all such computer results involve human bias in their set-up, so that nothing is ever quite as clear as it seems. Ravilious also writes:
"[Rob] Lee and his colleagues are now keen to analyse other undeciphered ancient scripts, such as the 'cup and ring' marks from the northern UK and Bronze Age petroglyphs from Scandinavia."
