FOUR MARKERS FOR OBSERVANCE LUNAR, SOLAR ECLIPSE REVEALED AT KOKINO



Culture.

People possessing great knowledge of the Sun and the Moon, as well as the secret of their eclipse, had existed in the period between 18-20 centuries B.C. This people created a lunar calendar and organized its life according to it.

This is confirmed by four special markers for observance of the initial cycle of the solar and lunar eclipse, revealed at Kokino observatory, which is more than 35 centuries old, said archaeological research manager Gjore Conev at Thursday's press conference.
"The archaeological analysis has resulted in two significant revelations, which define Kokino's lunar calendar, and assist in the measurement of 29- and 30-day lunar months", Stated Conev.

"The oldest revealed marker at Kokino dates from 1917 B.C. The markers are set at a distance of 54 years and 34 days, while the others date from 1863, 1809 and 1755 B.C.", stressed Conev, adding it is a mystery whether the people disappeared or changed its cult, because there are no markers after the year 1700 B.C.
In 2001, archaeologist Jovica Stankovski of Kumanovo National Museum revealed near village Kokino a site of ceramics dating from the Bronze period.

The site encompasses an area of about 5,000m2, set at two platforms right under mountain top Tatikev Kamen, 1,013m above sea level.


MD: This discovering of Kokino some years ago was a very important finding. The importance of the site was also confirmed by the us space agency, NASA. It appears 4th on the list of old observatories compiled by NASA. Together with Abu Simbel in Egypt, Stonehenge in the UK and Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
