Creswell Crags Robin Hood Cave Ochre Rib Bone Carving Currently on Display at the British Museum Ice Age Exhibition Deciphered as Calendric Astronomy

Happy Easter!

In honor of the day of resurrection celebrated today by the Christian faith, a general theme of hope and renewal that is the backbone of religious life for many religions and denominations, I would like to share with you my recent research success in bringing back to life (via decipherment) the ancient message found on the Creswell Crags "Ochre Horse" rib bone carving.

That engraved bone, now popularly called the "Robin Hood Cave Horse" after the cave in which it was discovered in 1876, is dated by the archaeologists to the Ice Age ca. 12500 years ago. It is the oldest artifact (British artefact) of this kind ever found in northern Europe and, as a stroke of luck for those interested, is currently on display at the British Museum until May 26, 2013 in the British Museum exhibition: Ice Age Art: Arrival of the Modern Mind.

For today, only the decipherment, no text.
In the course of time I will reveal how I arrived at this solution. Enjoy.

Once again, Happy Easter!

"Creswell Crags. The Ochre Horse. This original fragment of a rib bone contains the oldest known carving of its type in Britain. The horse was carved approximately 12,500 years ago and was on temporary display at the small museum at Creswell Crags to November 2009 (although a replica of the ochre horse is always on display). It was found on the 29th June in 1876 at the back of the western chamber in the 'Robin Hood Cave' in Creswell Crags. Sieveking 855, British Museum.
