February 2012 Breaking discovery:

A 12000 yr old geoglyph depicting a giant bull, carved into a hill along the Taurus Mountain Range in Turkey, has been discovered. The geoglyph contains a stone circle star map with an enigmatic message. These are the latest claims made by researcher and author of The Hidden Records - Wayne Herschel, on the mystery of the Gobekli Tepe historical site in Turkey.

When seen from above, the cluster of six stone circle monuments now excavated convincingly form a star map representation of the Pleiades… and using astronomy around 12000 years ago and its symbols... it clearly speaks an ancient celestial message.

Here is a 3 minute preview video of this page (above) for quick evaluation of the new claims. This latest finding ties all the grandest megalithic cultures as one with the same genesis theme. It is the final piece of the puzzle that now concludes the mystery of all mysteries: that there is a grand unified building plan in virtually all the famous stone masonry empires.

Gobekli Tepe presents another account of a distinct pattern of what Wayne has presented as the star ancestor code of humanity. This theory is still unrecognised by scholars yet the evidence is rife in all of earth’s greatest civilisations, the Egyptians, the Sumerians, the Inca, the Maya, Stonehenge and Angkor just to mention the favourites.

After launching his book The Hidden Records in 2003, Wayne Herschel read an article in 2006 that Gobekli Tepe had been discovered. It was deemed to be the first human civilisation! A search on Google Earth would reveal the site. What immediately struck him was the geoglyph pattern depicting a bull! It was easy for him to recognise this especially with the knowledge of what exactly it was that he was looking for. At the time he was hard pressed to believe that this could predate the oldest star map in his book: the Lascaux Cave in France whose pictograms are said to date back 17000 years. The star map in the Lascaux cave ‘coincidently’ repeats the pattern at Gobekli Tepe. The pattern of both is literally a mirror image of one another. Click here for full story on Lascaux.



THE CLUES 2006 AND 2012

Wayne had been looking for these distinct bull worship patterns at Gobekli Tepe ever since the site had been discovered. Surprisingly archaeologists have not noticed the geoglyph at all.

Since 2006 Wayne has kept his findings under wraps until further excavations had been completed. Archaeologists in a report dating back to 2006 originally claimed they were a “cluster” of stone circles. When Wayne read the article this was the magic word for him. Unfortunately a map showing the exact positions of all six stone circles that look like ruins of ‘dwellings’ would not become available for a long time yet… until now. Then the day arrived, new images were made public and Google Earth released their new image.

Years passed, until just the other day one of archaeologists released their excavations map that is up to date with what was seen on Google Earth... (ref)



The ruins correlate with the Pleiades... in orientation and with the biggest stone circle also correlating with the biggest star Alcyone. Note the area on the map at the top of the image with a question mark. This is where Wayne believes an original circle once existed instead of in the position of point ‘E’ (an enclosure that is square and not circular but is made up of 4 megalithic stone pillars). For now, let us accept point ‘E’ as representing the star correlation since it is an enclosure and it holds 4 substantial stone pillars (blue).

Egyptian evidence coincidently proposes the two stars Atlas and Pleione in this ‘straight line’ alignment in more than two cases, so what one needs to recheck with astronomers is star movement data. They say that the Pleiades cluster of stars has retained its general positioning and appearance as it is seen here for over 17000 years. The position ‘x’ is where Wayne believes another circle may once have existed and has potentially been removed through either war or later rebuilds. Or perhaps the ancients thousands of years later forgot the secret, its sacredness and used the stones.

If scholars insist Gobekli Tepe was the ‘first civilisation’, Wayne realised that if his theory that visitors from an earth-like planet associated with a Sun-like star near the Pleiades was a reality beyond theory status, then evidence of this had to be found here too… ostensibly the oldest civilisation. But not just a hint of the theme, it had to be one of the strongest cases to date presenting Wayne’s work.


Wayne Herschel's ‘star map theory’ insists that ALL the first civilisations on this planet had beginnings with advanced knowledge, all were obsessed in portraying their identical but shared blueprint code of who they were and where they came from: that they were human and that they came from the stars… or more specifically one special star. One would surely expect this kind of passion if humanity shared a unifying and unique genesis: people proud of their heritage as descendants of a very advanced and sacred star ancestor bloodline.

Yes, this indeed seemed to be the case in the beginning. Civilisations put up monuments to their heritage, built cities to emulate the stars and areas in the heavens that they were so proud to come from. But in time, in the name of kingship, glory, power and profit, one by one, kings decided to hide the truth making it available only to their kin. In doing this, they lied to their people that only they were of the sacred bloodline. Foreigners, whose heritage had once been the same, were considered as ‘not chosen’ lineage completely and it was easy for rulers to recruit armies to attack those who were not the chosen ones. They would obey orders and murder, rape and pillage foreign lands.

The elite rich people kingships in many lands kept the secret. Powerful empires grew and in all likelihood this is probably how secret sects and secret societies began… hiding and encoding knowledge of the divine and heavenly equality and sacred beginnings of all humanity.


Gobekli Tepe in Turkey is currently placed by archaeologists as the ‘ground zero’ of human beginnings on the planet. Some go as far as saying it must therefore be the Eden of the biblical account, while others say this is the real place of ‘Tep Zepi’ predating Egypt. For his part, Wayne believes Stonehenge, Egypt, Sumer, the Inca, the Maya and all the other ancient civilisations had the same early arrival so to speak on this planet, so they all share this colonisation ‘secret’ in many areas within a similar time window. But let us go with academic insistence for now that this is the earliest record of advanced thinking human life and they place it somewhere around 12000 years ago.


For those not familiar with the history of the Gobekli Tepe site in Turkey or the general findings claimed so far by the historians working there. Look at the way the top portion of the stone pillar has its strange tilted lintel fit flush like the Inca, here is where the stone masons are megalithic class without a doubt. Click the image below for more. This link has the latest stunning images presented by the Smithsonian:



Academia will no doubt fight Wayne’s controversial interpretation with all they can throw at him since it challenges every traditional theory proposed by big name archaeologists – scholars who once presented their work as a theory are being followed by modern historians as if it were facts. The theory of worshipping our Sun from the beginning was obviously misinterpreted. The earliest ancients seem clearly venerating another Sun in the cosmos. Yes there are many cases thousands of years after the grand human beginnings where records were destroyed and hidden. Confused perhaps, the priests at the time began worshipping our Sun and sacrificing bulls.

Wayne proposes that the first accounts of all early civilisations were not worshipping our Sun or bull imagery at all, but more likely revering and honouring the knowledge of the stars and our ancestors’ abode in the heavens. Just as we do with modern monuments honouring something worth honouring today. It seems our megalithic ancestors were honouring something profound in the Taurus constellation. Not our Sun but another Sun… a sun-like star system of our ancestors. But when our Sun sets at the time that it is conjunct with the sun star of our ancestors, it is then and only then that our Sun was incorporated into the ritual.

It will be some time for scholars to accept the earth-shattering collection of linked claims that by statistics now add a whole new science into reasoning the lost truth as well: probability emerging from repeated re-occurrences, and the findings are global.




Here is Wayne Herschel’s full interpretation… lets just call it a theory for now and time will test its credibility. The image animation here of the bull geoglyph above repeats the legend of Hermes: “As Above So Below”. A bull with horns is clearly visible, our Sun is between its horn (conjunct occurrence date discussed later). The stone circle ruins (with oval rings) number six for now and it seems that one is missing (shown with ‘x’) perhaps not uncovered yet or over the thousands of years was destroyed in warfare or dismantled for rebuilds once the knowledge of its meaning was lost.

The stone circles appear to duplicate the stars of the Pleiades (see image below) and the position of what Wayne has presented as being a tiny sun-like star in his book, is in the exact same position and orientation as that found in at least fifteen other substantial cases at different ancient sites so far.



Not many historians have presented an explanation for the stone circle ‘dwellings’. However since they have walls around the carved stone megaliths forming an enclosure, it would be fair to interpret them as double walled well insulated Ice Age-type dwellings brimming with sacred astronomical pictograms. source image... (ref)



This is one of the stone circle dwellings that Wayne proposes makes up the Pleiades star correlation interpretation. Note the alignments with yellow lines of the stone megaliths inside the dwelling. Note the double layered wall as if to insulate it from the coldest of icy weather at the end of the last Ice age. All it needs is a substantial thatched roof with a high apex so snow would slide off. The megalith pillars have angled top pieces, which suggest aligned beams of wood would have been placed here.

This is quite different from Stonehenge. Mainly because Stonehenge most likely had open sides for clear stellar, sun and moon alignment measurements.

There are two other major points hardly covered in all the articles on Gobekli Tepe so far. Wayne believes one has to worth cross referencing the small collection of site evidence so far with the following findings:

Marton Molnar-Gob a fellow researcher in Hungary was researching another Turkish site looking for the same blueprint code found in Wayne’s book, when he stumbled on one really large piece of the puzzle that places the Taurus bull geoglyph into the light.

He found that the Mountain range running through this area in Turkey is called the Taurus Mountains. The name is everything, something that was set so far back in time to inspire the name of the range itself.

Click here for the Taurus mountain range reference.

Here is more reasoning: According to written history there was a previous civilisation believed to be the oldest civilisation until now, but which had lost its title to Gobekli Tepe. Not only is it in Turkey, but it is also very close to the region of Gobekli Tepe. It is the site of Catalhoyuk. Thought to be around 10000 years old, it is replete with bull worship artefacts and Sun worship themes. This is fundamentally very strong evidence that Gobekli Tepe should be found with identical beliefs.

Click here for the Wikipedia background on Catalhoyuk

These two points speak volumes in reasoning the pictoglyphs of the cosmic bull as found in Egypt with the Sun between its horns with Wayne's complete pyramid layout article titled Star Map Egypt. Ref.



A bull with solar disc between horns like Egypt is identical to the geoglyph. If the bull theme seen above has OUR Sun between it just like in ancient Egypt over 5000 years ago then it is highly likely that it is the celestial Taurus bull. Yes our Sun passes between the horns in its path through the cosmos each year… but here and in other cases in Egypt it seems to venerate a time when our Sun is conjunct with the sun-like of their ancestors who were venerated as gods. Now since Gobekli Tepe is located on the edge of the Taurus mountains.

If one is to interpret the bull geoglyph as the stars of Taurus, there are six further convincing points that fit the interpretation:

1) the bull is ‘upright’ in north alignment
2) the bull is watching itself in the heavens setting in the night sky and entering upright into the underworld.
3) the bull geoglyph has the Pleiades on its neck which is the correct position of the Pleiades in the night sky in relation to Taurus the bull
4) the orientation of the Pleiades matches the geoglyph
5) the orientation of the Pleiades, the position of the special sun-like star associated with it and the position of the sun all match the night sky
6) the bull geoglyph complex is a mirror image of Taurus on the western horizon in the Spring Equinox 12000 years ago


There are only a few cases of symbols found so far and scholars as usual have many astronomical theories but feel it is too early to make conclusions.

Let us look at the artifacts and symbols and reason the obvious:



In the image above, on the right is the bull with the sun between its horns – the biggest clue of the bull-obsessed lost civilisation! Note how the bull is poised in the air and the other celestial creatures are placed in a typical constellation-like fashion. A statue of a man dressed in an impressive V neck garment at the centre holding what scholars claim is a fox or leopard pelt just like the Egyptian pharaohs depicting kingship. Here is some interesting thinking. The man is not appearing like one who would be living in Ice age conditions. He should look like an Eskimo. He looks shaved and wearing a body suit. It would be silly to insist well maybe he was standing naked. It was just far to cold in this region and altitude then, and to a certain extent, in recent history.


The “H” symbol seems to appear very similar to the world famous and very global Kanaga symbol (see below). Not only that, its meaning appears to be linked also.

The Kanaga symbol is one found in the earliest depictions of ancient civilisations all over the world. The image below shows the Kanaga symbol most frequently found with the Dogon tribe in north west Africa.

The origin on the symbol fully explained at this link here (ref).

How is it possible all cases of the symbol have such odd bent arms and legs at right angles, but more interestingly, with the two dots on each side of it in earliest accounts?

Wayne insists this global occurrence speaks volumes. It basically shouts out loud that all ancient civilisations around the world knew the same symbol. But would it not be likely that all knew the same meaning also? Were they taught the knowledge by returning star visitors or was it a natural thing to obsess in by some strange instinct.

All ancient cultures most likely were taught by visiting entities they often depicted as human-like gods who could fly. The teaching of all teachings! Something of the greatest significance to humanity that survived a devastating cataclysm that ended the Ice Age! A teaching that would resurface once advanced civilisations had been reduced from advanced people back to hunters and gatherers. The visiting entities would teach the survivors of the ancient civilisation the lost knowledge about our great ancestors who came from the stars.


Wayne is convinced that the Kanaga symbol represents Orion. The two dots seem to be Orion’s belt. Some show it more like a lizard with a tail and others more like a man. The latter seems more fitting since myth has Orion as a hunter… either hunting a bull or more logically for Wayne… showing the way with his arrow or three belt stars something sacred near the bull.



Here is a major archaeoastronomy breakthrough… look how the “H” symbol and the Kananga symbol seem one and the same…

The “H” symbol with two ‘sickle’ crescents are unique too (ref). and having two on each side of it already suggests the crescent is not our moon since we have only one moon. Is the “H” symbol in true orientation?

There is another megalithic pillar with a combination of all the symbols documented so far at Gobekli Tepe. It places them in a pictogram.

In the image below the orientation of the “H” with its symbols below it is where the Orion theory sits well. Something extra is seen in the “H” … a small oval suggesting the belt aspect of Orion which aligns to show the way to what is beneath it. The Ra symbol… the circumpunct… the ultimate sacred symbol in Wayne’s book found in the Senmut tomb (ref). and just like the Senmut tomb it is aligned with Orion’s belt showing the way, personified as Horus. The Ra symbol also has the crescent … not our moon but a world bathed in partial light from its own sun star… another solar system where one would expect life to originate from.

There is another star map here: the secret of these symbols matches the theme of the Gobekli Tepe geoglyph, not just as another star map showing the way to the Sun-star (ref). found in all ancient civilisations but it matches the orientation on the western horizon: As above So Below.




Here is the magic moment in time comparing Gobekli Tepe to a star program that goes back in time to the spring equinox where it shows more than just the bull watching itself in the heavens.

It includes where our Sun is positioned at this epoch at sunset on the spring equinox. Only advanced astronomers could calculate so much into just one grand depiction and their inhabitants were no primitives.



Spring Equinox 12000 years ago agrees with the date historians suggest as the age for the site. It seems the ancients here watched the setting of the stars in the west as it entered the underworld. This is unique, especially for the choice of the bull shape of the constellation of Taurus on the horizon. Why? Because the ancients in all ancient civilisations believed stars were more sacred on the horizon.



This is where their astronomers measured the stars. If we accept scholars claims that Gobekli Tepe is older than any other ancient site then it is quite possible thousands of years later other ancient civilisations chose the east horizon as the stars were ‘reborn’ according to their texts, but none of the other cultures depicted the bull of the heavens like this. The reason for this is possibly because of the importance of the bull being upright in the sky on the horizon, a show of respect to its heavenly form.


In support of the re-occurring three sun-stars near the Pleiades in some Templar records (ref). and the importance of which Wayne has identified in earlier research of a Solar Trinity, there is a plain circle at Gobekli that has no inner megaliths just like the circle found between the horns of the bull geoglyph. This suggests it represents another sun-star… a third.

Wayne suggests the more recent farmer may have removed the simple stone circle to make way for his plantation of olive trees.



Why did the ancients find the horizon important you might ask?

Wayne proposes another interesting thing about the star map when measuring the position of the important star that appears to be very tiny and sun-like… and only visible with optical equipment.

Orion has a unique feature where its belt stars are concerned. On certain times of the year like Christmas the 25th December (which was once named Sol Invictus long before the Christ)… and the star map of Rome ... Vatican City... clearly another example of the star map... (ref) , Orion’s belt rises perfectly East and sets perfectly West with the belt stars, as seen in the Kanaga image above… perfectly vertical. One simply needs to use a large set square at a distance, set a pair of dividers to 33 degrees of arc and measure line of sight above the horizon to find the ultimate star of our ancestors. (ref).

Another interesting feature of the bull on the geoglyph ‘watching’ itself on the horizon: it is exactly what the Sphinx in Egypt is designed to do. It also watches Leo on the horizon. It does so whispering its truth: “As above so below” as if to say “interpret my secret on the ground as it is in the heavens”… “Interpret the pyramids as stars”. (ref).

In Egypt Leo holds the key to the same star map found at Gobekli Tepe. But it has the Sun rising between the paws of Leo because it too is a zodiac sign… carrying our Sun in unison, celebrating our Sun together with our ancestors’ sun-like star on specific dates. In the Egypt star map, the Leo orientation confirms that all pyramids need to be interpreted as a star map. (ref).


Because of the size of the geoglyph it would need to be the front portion only with front leg to perfectly match the heavenly bull of Taurus. Lo and behold… it does… front hoof included.

Here is the shape of the hill and what appears to be the front leg of the bull. Note in astronomy legend the bull always had its front legs shown… but never its rear legs. The full bull interpretation is questionable, but the front leg surely makes it probable. There is faint stone walling remains for the front hoof.



In conclusion, this Gobekli Tepe star map interpretation by Wayne Herschel should stand its ground thanks to a host of corroborating evidence here on this page. But since it challenges all written history, expect silence for a while because scholars will prefer not to comment for some time.

We all look forward to the possibility that if there are some important hidden records buried at this site, the unexcavated area presented as the sun-star correlation… here would be the place to look.

I address all scholars evaluating the article claims here. One must compare Gobekli Tepe with the complete list of all the evidence in support of this claim. Here is the complete story of this star obsession the ancients possessed which Wayne has made freely available … click here
