Luna Martin Brennan at Oklahoma equinox site Luna

Martin Brennan is the pioneer author and researcher who led the way in revolutionising our understanding of Ireland's ancient stone monuments, many of which he demonstrated to have previously undocumented astronomical alignments. His books include the "Boyne Valley Vision" (1980) and "The Stars and the Stones" (1984), the critically-acclaimed work which all others researching ancient Irish astronomy use as their starting point. Now living in Boulder, Colorado, Martin Brennan recently had a chance to visit a site in Oklahoma which is said to contain "Celtic" markings on it, and which has a very special equinox alignment.

AMERICAN CELTS?

There is dramatic and revolutionary evidence that there was an ancient Celtic presence in America's heartland perhaps even before the time of Christ. Ogham symbols, like those in Ireland but without the vowels, have been found at sites in Southeastern Colorado and the Oklahoma Panhandle.

Here, Brennan discusses with film-maker Scott Monahan the Anubis Cave, one of two side-by-side caves (the other called the Nosepointer cave), which, Brennan points out, resemble a skull-like image. They visited the site on Monday, March 19th, at the time of Spring Equinox, and witnessed the shadows cast by the setting sun as they crossed over various etchings and carvings on the rear of the cave. One of this author's major discoveries in Ireland was at Cairn T, Loughcrew, in 1980, where he and his team rediscovered that site's alignment to the rising equinox sun.
