Charles Hapgood’s monumental classic, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, demonstrates that the ancient Twelve Winds Mapping System, mostly a lost art by classical greek times, must have been predicated upon the ancient chaldean sexagesimal (base 60) number system, as the numbers used were the same, base six numbers, which upon studying Hapgood’s book caused me to think of the fact that the length of one side of a hexagon (a six sided polygon) is the same as the radius length of a circle circumscribing the hexagon, which with the precession rate (the wobble rate) of the earth’s axis being 72 years/degree, also a base six number, enabled me to deduce the methodology by which the ancients measured and mapped the earth, the obvious solution to the question Hapgood raised, “how did they do it?”

The methodology turns out to have been the means to establish the length for the ancient royal cubit, as well as, the ancient olympic foot (3,000 of which composed the base perimeter length of the Great Pyramid of Giza), a function of timekeeping, like our modern nautical mile timekeeping system, by solar transit timekeeping, but in archaic ice age times, by the much slower, and therefore, much more easily measured and charted, rate of the very slowly wobbling axis of the earth, at 72 years/degree.  Read the surprisingly simple reasoning behind this ancient methodology in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, to see that God’s intelligent design of the universe enabled the ancients to very accurately measure, and thereby, map the earth, as evidenced with the Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings.
