Is it possible that the Coligny Calendar preserves the older Indo-European tradition of the Celts?I believe that the answer to that question is a most definite YES! We also have the Nebra Disc discovered near Nebra in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany in 1999. This bronze and gold plated disc was used as a calculator to harmonise the lunar and solar calendars and dates back to about 1600 BCE. Also there was the discovery of the solar temple in Goseck, Sachsen in Germany in 1991 and it is believed that it dates back to 5000 BCE making this the oldest of its kind in Northern Europe. Additionally we have the discovery of four golden pointed `Witches hats` from Germany and France which collectively date back to between 800-1400 BCE and it is speculated that they had both cultic and astronomical-calendrical functions. Scholars now accept that Stonehenge was a solar temple and alligned to both the winter and summer solstices. Furthermore the discovery of scores of further Bronze Age upturned axe carvings on the sarsens also establish the Indo-European origins of stages II and III of the building and its associations with the Aryan God of Thunder who we acknowledge as Thunor. In the southern Urals we have the discovery of the ancient settlement of Arkaim which scholars have dated to approximately 1600BCE. The settlement contained a city built on a swastika shaped floor plan which has caused it to be called Swastika City. The living quarters had all the `modern` conveniences of a storm drainage and sewerage system, the houses were fireproofed and there was cold storage for food. A further 20 similar settlements have been found in the Arkaim valley but it is considered that this city was its capital. Many of the unearthed clay pots are covered with swastikas and it assumed that Arkaim was both a defensive settlement and an ancient solar temple/observatory. The swastika is of course both a solar and a polar symbol, the latter being a more ancient concept. The above are all examples of a once flourishing Nordic-Aryan-Hyperborean civilisation which is slowly coming to light again in the calamitous times of the Kali Yuga. I believe that their reemergence is all part of our Gods` desire to reawaken the Aryan folk to full spiritual consciousness. I dare say that many more discoveries will follow in the years to come.

Archaeological discoveries in recent years have demonstrated to the world the deep antiquity of Aryan civilisation in northern Europe and the advanced culture of our ancestors. They were not knuckle-dragging cave dwellers that `academics` formerly would have led us to believe. I have over the years featured some of these discoveries on my blogs. An example of Nordic-Aryan ingenuity is the Coligny Calendar from first century BCE Gaul. This is a lunar calendar engraved on bronze plates and discovered in November 1897. Professor Heinrich Zimmer came to the conclusion that it had many parallels to Vedic calendar calculations. In 1992 it was discovered that whilst the calendar was manufactured in the first century BCE it must have been computed as long ago as 1100BCE! Peter Berresford Ellis in his interesting book, The Celts states that in 1924 when Professor Eoin MacNeill examined the calendar the question was asked:
