Below is an astronomical map showing the 12 houses of the zodiac. This map dating to the 3rd-2nd millennia BC was found in the Vardenis mountains in Armenia – more precisely, on Mount Sevsar.
William Tyler Alcott (1873–1936), founder of the American Association of Variable Star Observers, in his “Star Lore of All Ages” notes that the Zodiac was most likely created in Armenia around 3,000 BC.
He writes that British astronomer and mathematician Edward Walter Maunder indicated that the Zodiac was created in the area between 36 and 42 degrees of northern latitude, in the territory between the Black, Mediterranean, and Caspian seas, and that all the animals present in the zodiac can only be found in Armenia.
