Anmerkungen zu Klaus Albrecht - "Die Stele von Wellen: Mondkalender - Mondsymbolik?"

Main Article Content

Jürgen Hamel


In his online-article on the Wellen stele near Kassel (Hesse) Klaus Albrecht proposed an interpretation as a lunar calendar or - more generally - as a reflection of accurate Neolithic moon observations. Here now a reply from a strictly archaeo-astronomical point of view, in which the calendar hypothesis is rejected because of poor agreement between pattern of decoration and moon phases.
