Re: [ancient_waterways_society] Mike Morelock Tablet
The history of the Pythagorean Theorem may be re-written by the Mike Morelock Tablet found nearby Cahokia Mounds, in central Illinois.The Mike Morelock Tablet may add to known Pythagorean History.
It was inscribed by the aboriginal cultures with Pythagorean symbols that reveal the genius existed with knowledge of Pi, , and the hexagon.
This correspondence is to call attention to a website about the Pythagorean Oriental tiles.
I have noticed a correspondence with the Mike Morelock Tablet from Illinois that seems to match the Pythagorean tiles.
I have written an article on the Discovery, which links to a photobucket webiste that include many photos of the discovery.
Any comments are welcome.

Date: Saturday, January 31, 2009, 12:46 PMElizabeth Kassly (formerly Liz Kane) called this morning to clarify some of the information about this topic.First, the tablet was found by Mike Morelock. Liz Kane was working in an adjacent location on excavations at the time of discovery. The tablet was found in a timy pit in a wall trench of an unusual house structure. The unusual house structure had a north facing opeing and was a T-shaped structure. At the time, Liz and Mike did not know what the tablet was. They assumed it was a sandstone abrader. They bagged it and sent it to John Kelly's Labratory called Fingerhut. Later, it was discovered to be a tablet at ITARP. Liz Kassly stated it should be called the Morelock Tablet, to name it after the finder.It is important to keep all documentation and information with the artifact for these reasons. Perhaps someone in 500 years will be intersted in researching more about these finds. Archaeology reveals memories of the past can reveal what would otherwise be obscured forever.Vince

Date: Saturday, January 31, 2009, 12:20 AMThe following link shows primary site documents from the Discovery of
the John Kelly Tablet as well as photos of this interesting artifact.
It is named after the Archaeologist from Cahokia that was in charge of
the Excavation. It was actually unearthed by Elizabeth Kane, who drew
the soil profile images.

I have colorized the soil profile images using the Munsell scale
according to color references.
This artifact was found about halfway between Monks Mound Fox hill
Mound. It is made of sandstone.
One side is engraved with a crosshatching patter (x) shaped lines
interconnecting around the edges with an alternate pattern of
triangles. It is a rare example of aboriginal engraving.
The only other example I know of is from Blombous Cave, South Africa
and it was dated with thermoluminescence to 60.000BC
One of the most interesting features of this stone is its geometric
and mathematical properties. Ross Hamilton identified similar icons in
his book "The Mystery of the Serpent Mound" on page 47. Particularly
striking to compare with Figure 31.
