The native inhabitants of "America" are related to the Armorican maritime culture of the North Atlantic and other seafaring tribes of Europe - moreover, according to Plato, the Atlantic Ocean was once navigable long ago - before the "great deluge from heaven".
1/ Exactly when the vigesimal alphabet of Ogam was forwarded
to the British Isles from America by ancient Atlantean sailors is
not known, but it is believed that the builders of Stonehenge - the most famous and distinctive
historical monument in northern Europe, may have employed the
alphabet since many nearby megalithic stone items of that era
have Ogamic markings carved on them.
(The Stonehenge site and its "hinged" method of stone construction, are dated to the same Neolithic era in which the great pyramids of Egypt were built)
2/ Furthermore, the sun-worshiping Atlantean culture that
built Stonehenge also constructed other stone megalithic sites
throughout ancient Brittany and western Europe.
Stonehenge was a time-keeping tool.
Stonehenge is perhaps the most impressive megalithic structure in the northern European region that was built using iron rod and port-hole construction. Many believe it was an astronomical calendar that helped define lunar-solar time mesurements by marking the movements of the moon and sun.
3/ Actually, there exist several trans-Atlantic cultural
connections that predate the Viking Age; one is, because of a new
understanding regarding ancient nautical migrations of seafaring
families along the North Atlantic, the Erie and Iroquoi Indians
of North America may have influenced or inspired the phonetic
identification of the "strange and enchanting" island
(Eri = Iro = Ire = Euro - as in Europe or "euros", meaning "east")
[It is important to realize that the native tribes of the New World and their name titles existed long before the European colonization of the American continents]
4/ Another more important "phonetical connection"
across the north Atlantic realm is that the Brittanic lands of
the pre-Viking maritime Celtic community - known as the
Armoricans of Armorica (armar = upon the sea), may have help
influenced European map makers of the Renaissance in designating
the inhabited "sun set isles of the Atlantic" (i.e. the
maritime lands of the Brittanic Armorican culture - including all lands to the west of Europe) the
continents of "America".
The Armorican realm of the west.
The ancient ogamic alphabet links the Armorican and the "American" maritime cultures of the North Atlantic. Are the Greek and the Creek cultures really separated by a thousand years?
5/ However, the most significant trans-Atlantean connection of cultural contact that predates the Viking Age is the chronological similarity between the Julian Lunar-solar Calendar and the Trans-Atlantean Solar Calendar.
6/ There are only two major differences between the two calendars.
7/ First, the Julian Lunar-solar Calendar (which became
effective right after the navel battle between the Roman and
Armorican fleets) intercalates a leap-day every four years -
whereas the Trans-Atlantean Solar Calendar intercalates a
leap-day every fourth and fifth year.
(The Greek philosopher Plato specifically documented that the "Atlanteans of Atlantis" would meet every fourth and fifth year at the central acropolis in the capital city of Atlantis)
This data page list certain timekeeping formulas used by ancient cultures that attempted to balance annual time. A recent calendrical overview of the numerical possibilities suggest that the 7-day weekly count may have been used in the New World long before 500 years ago. Also revealed is the suggestion that the 4-year "leap" day concept of the Julian Calendar may be linked to the Mayan calendar by way of the Armorican maritime culture.
9/ But the resemblance between the two are remarkably compatible, for example; Both accommodate a time table of a seven-day week and a fifty-two week period per year, both also account for a systematic leap-day formula based on direct solar time and not on "reflective" lunar time.
10/ What this calendrical similarity really means is that the Julian Lunar-solar Calendar was created when the Europeans compromised the calendrical time keeping habits of the maritime Atlantean cultures - which used a seasonal time table, with the time keeping habits from the Near and Middle Eastern peoples - which used a 29.5 day "moonth" time table.
11/ Again, more about the Trans-Atlantean Solar Calendar and its forgotten role in ancient history later, but for now let us continue our investigation as to how the Latin alphabet evolved from Ogamic communication.
