Archaeo astronomy talks in July 2019 in Johannesburg

On June 23 and June 30, in the winter recess of 2019, author Edmond Furter will present the sixth series of weekend talks on archaeo-astronomy. He will demonstrate the standard repertoire of subconscious behaviour in recurrent archetypal characters in art, rock art, building sites, supposed ‘astronomical’ artefacts, and mythical sites including Rennes le Chateau.

The presentations will include structuralist analysis of artefacts from Ice Age Europe (BP 26 000), GobekliTepe (BC 8000), Classical sites, Southern African San rock art, seals of Sumerian, Indus and Minoan cultures, and modern artists such as Walter Battiss.

There are sixteen archetypes, four half-types, seven structural points, and precessional Age markers, in natural media such as cosmology and chemistryl and in cultural media worldwide, including myth, ritual, art, calendars, crafts such as astrology, emblematic sets such as Tarot trumps, and building sites. Identification of the attributes of archetypes, and the new method of structuralist analysis of artefacts, have several implications for esoteric crafts, and for sciences such as archaeology, anthropology, archaeo-astronomy, art history, and psychology.

Edmond is the author of Mindprint (2014), and of Stoneprint (2016), and editor of Stoneprint Journal (see He has presented updates on his research results to several science, arts and esoteric craft societies. Copies of the two books are on sale at R250 each, and editions of Stoneprint Journal at R60.

The presentations include a workshop on archaeo astronomy, and how to identify archetypes in ancient and modern artefacts.

The series of four talks in Roodepoort, Johannesburg, includes a USB stick with 200 examples. The annual archaeo astronomy talks in Johannesburg is an introduction and update to the latest developments in archaeo astronomy, artefact analysis, and spatial structure in ancient sites.

The presentations includes three slide show presentations by the author; a copy of Stoneprint, the human code in art, buildings and cities; two copies of Stoneprint Journal; a poster of a star map; and a folder of images on a USB stick, supplementing the books Mindprint (2014); and Stoneprint (2016).
