Woodhenge Child Sacrifice

wʊdˈhɛn(d)ʒ tʃʌɪld ˈsakrɪfʌɪs

noun | Archaeoastronology

the instance of a three-year old girl having been ritually sacrificed at Woodhenge; three rays, midsummer, midwinter sunrise, and a line to the Moon’s extreme northern setting, cross over the grave suggesting either helio-oblation or lunar oblation.

Origin and etymology

  • Astro-English: from Astronese, the title Woodhenge Child Sacrifice was coined by Cometan and later adopted by Astronist theory to refer to his particular instance of ritual sacrifice for an astronomical object, evidence of which can also be found in the Aztec civilisation.
