<p> <a href=""></a></p> <p> A new interpretation of the 3000 year old Tugalo Stone, located in Northeastern Georgia (USA) has revealed it to&nbsp;have a multitude of functions:</p> <p> It&nbsp;is a solstice stone marking the summer solstice (June 21) with specific Celt-Iberian language and using the star constellations of Orion and Auriga to show the Summer Solstice sunrise between the two constellations.</p> <p> It is a map-making navigational aid for travellers from the tip of Spain and North Africa, including the use of star constellations, the North Star&nbsp;and the sun pictured with carvings of phoenecian-style ships. The directions indicate crossing with the prevailing late spring winds (hurricane season today)</p> <p> On the reverse side are navigational instructions for the return up the eastern U.S. coast and crossing to England.</p> <p> The stone was originally located (in 1814) on a strategic mound alongside the Tugalo River (Headwaters of the Savannah River, a major river leading to the Gold and Copper mining areas) There is evidence that the stone was used to make copies for travellers to take maps.</p> <p> Petroglyph and ancient language researcher Thomas D. Cox made these discoveries.&nbsp;</p> <p> <a href=""></a></p>
