And there it is - Comet strike 10,950 BC

"Ancient stone carvings confirm how comet struck Earth in 10,950BC, sparking the rise of civilisations"

Experts at the University of Edinburgh analysed mysterious symbols carved onto stone pillars at Gobekli Tepe in southern Turkey, to find out if they could be linked to constellations.

The markings suggest that a swarm of comet fragments hit Earth at the exact same time that a mini-ice age struck, changing the entire course of human history.

[...]

Using a computer programme to show where the constellations would have appeared above Turkey thousands of years ago, they were able to pinpoint the comet strike to 10,950BC, the exact time the Younger Dryas begins according to ice core data from Greenland.

[...]

"If you consider that, according to astronomers, this giant comet probably arrived in the inner solar system some 20 to 30 thousand years ago, and it would have been a very visible and dominant feature of the night sky, it is hard to see how ancient people could have ignored this given the likely consequences."

The research is published in Mediterranean Archaeology and Archaeometry.


Looking forward to where this goes in upcoming months and years.

Of course, it would be impossible to know the positions of the constellations if the Earth had changed orientation, which is in fact the case.

The point of megalithic sites seems to be to remark Earth's place in the heavens, a fairly rational human need following a momentous alteration in them. See: Giza, et al...
