# Are Archaeologist Now Agreeing that the Ancient Adena Mound Builders of the Ohio Valley were Using a Base 60 Babylonian Numbering System?

The earthworks' solstice alignments at Winchester, Indiana, align to make two Pythagorean triangles. Woke archaeologists claim that Native Americans knew these mathematical and geometric principles. I believe the "Hopewell" mound builders were of Dakota Sioux origin. The earlier "Adena" were the Babylonian Amorites. Indian legends say that a white race once inhabited the Ohio Valley and "were skilled in the arts." The Amorites were called "giants" in the Bible. Plenty of recorded giants are found in Adena mounds. The Amorites are proposed to have built Stonehenge and the conical burial mounds surrounded by a ditch in England. There are Adena mounds in the Ohio Valley surrounded by a ditch. Henges are found throughout the Ohio Valley. Two of the henges in the Ohio Valley are aligned to the May 1 sunrise. Beltane May 1 has its origins with the Canaanite/Amorites!Delsy Wilson who is one of the docents at the Serpent Mound made an interesting statement. "Isn’t there a proposed Hopewell base measurement also based on 60?" Yes, it is me who advocates that Babylonia Amorites were in the Ohio Valley." We have two confirmed earthwork sites that used the Pythagorean theorem. The two most frequent measures of sun temples (henges) are 660 and 666 feet with one 555 feet in circumfernce. Many of the square earthworks were 1080 feet per side. Both of these number are Babylonian Gematria numbers. They are also both divisible by 60. We also know that earthworks were constructed by a people that understood trigonometry, pi and sqauring circles. The Babylonian Amorotes (the accounted giants in the Bible) were in the Ohio Valley.

An Australian mathematician cracked the code of a famous 3,700 year old Babylonian clay tablet revealing that they were doing more accurate trigonometry nearly 1,500 years before the Greeks.

In 2017, Australian mathematician Dr. Daniel Mansfield from the University of New South Wales decoded a 3,700-year-old Babylonian clay tablet known as Plimpton 322. The tablet, which was originally discovered in the early 20th century in southern Iraq, contains a series of numbers arranged in four columns and 15 rows. For a long time, the purpose of these numbers remained a mystery.

Dr. Mansfield and his team discovered that Plimpton 322 is a trigonometric table. Unlike Greek trigonometry, which is based on angles and circles, Babylonian trigonometry used ratios of sides of right-angled triangles and a base 60 (sexagesimal) number system. This system, the researchers found, enabled the Babylonians to create a trigonometric table that is more accurate than the Greek method, as it avoids irrational numbers and provides exact ratios.

Key points about this discovery include:

1. Plimpton 322 predates Greek mathematicians such as Hipparchus, who is often credited with founding trigonometry, by more than a millennium.

2. The Babylonians' use of a base 60 number system allowed them to make complex calculations with great precision. Their method is particularly advantageous for some practical applications, such as surveying and architecture.

3. The tablet shows that the Babylonians had a sophisticated understanding of right-angled triangles and could solve problems related to their sides with exceptional accuracy.

4. This finding suggests that the history of mathematics is richer and more complex than previously thought, with advanced mathematical practices emerging in different cultures independently.

The discovery of the true purpose of Plimpton 322 has reshaped our understanding of ancient mathematical knowledge and highlights the advanced capabilities of Babylonian scholars long before similar concepts were documented in Greek mathematics.
