Battlefield Indiana's Effigy Mounds of the Stars and Constellations

Battlefield Indiana's Effigy Mounds of the Stars and Constellations


The Upper left represents the burial mound pattern at Battlefield, Indiana.  The lower right is the "Hunter' with his bow.  The mounds at Battlefield duplicate this to precise to believe they were intended to represent anything else.More on Indiana's ancient giants here https://youtu.be/lgY4LXL4xjY


The largest mound this group may represent the star, Rigel. All of the mounds that would have represented the 'bow' are now gone.  The four mounds linear mounds are located behind the houses at the far left.


The four linear mounds are still visible, but what do they represent?  The first mound is aligned with the thrid star down from the 'bow' that would align perfectly with the bright star Belatrix.

Two of best preserved mounds of the four linear mounds of the effigy group.

Betelgeuse, A massive M-type red supergiant star nearing the end of its life.It serves as the "right shoulder" of the hunter it represents (assuming that he is facing the observer), and is the eighth brightest star in the night sky.
Rigel, is blue supergiant that is the sixth brightest star in the night sky. Similar to Betelgeuse. It serves as the left foot of Orion, the hunter.
  • Bellatrix  Bellatrix serves as Orion's left shoulder
