Hi Martin

Over these last few days I've become more convinced that the premise you are exploring, that of the GT animals representing constellations, is the best starting point to explore as we seek to unravel their meaning.

I can't think of another, better alternative (although I'm not an academic, nor a serious independent researcher on things ancient). But it is well established that the ancients tracked the stars.

What other established starting points are there from which we can interpret GT?

Surely, these carvings may be art for arts sake, for example.

But we simply don't know that, and so it makes no sense to exclude other possible explanations in light of this uncertainty. That, in itself, is a flawed premise.
