Starmaps in Launceston

Starmaps 2016 is part of the project associated with the archeological dig at Kerry Lodge, Launceston, Tasmania. 

The patterns of the pegs and sting that marked out the dig suggested the pattern in the night sky above the site, constellating in Starmaps.
As above so below.

Starmaps are an ancient form used by indigenous Australians for millennia to navigate across country at night.
