The site is aptly named Adam’s Calendar because the stones are placed to track the movement of the Sun, which casts shadows on the rock. This remarkable calendar was originally a large circular stone structure and in the center of the ‘circle’ are two upright stones. Its original shape is still clearly visible from satellite images. There are strong connections to Sumerian texts and the gold mining activity in the ABZU by the Anunna gods. It should be noted that the area surrounding Adam’s Calendar is extremely rich in gold.
