Nice to know but I found nothing about "bosses" online. And unless you are the Boss of the Giant Megalithic mound and temple builders I'm a skeptic of the "dots" being "bosses". Why have two per stone and one on other stones? I'm not saying they are astrological devices. The dots/bosses may indeed have carry a message of the heavens since they were left in the pattern that resembles the Pleiades. The Pleiades dots/bosses are embossed on clay tablets and stone art around the world, at every scale. Have you yet to check out the work of Wayne Herschel at the Hidden Records? I would be interested to see how you discredit his work on the subject of the Pleiades star map and of the "home star of the Gods", the Gods who came to earth to leave their starmap here. Anyway, thanks for the feedback as weak-legged as it seems. Peace
I'd have to echo jaylemurph's surprise over your failed efforts at finding something about bosses in ancient stone construction. Allow me to post an explanatory link similar to jaylemurph's. These Wiki articles are not opening properly on my end, so just to play it safe, I'm directing you to the Google page in my search. It's the very first link on the page:

Note especially the photo in the top-left corner, of a masonry wall at Segesta. There really is no mystery here. Anyone who's conducted research in ancient masonry construction is familiar with this and a myriad of other fundamentals.
There is also this from Dieter Arnold's book The Encyclopaedia of Ancient Egyptian Architecture (page 33):
(Italic emphasis mine.)
Arnold is one of the leaders in the field of pharaonic masonry construction, so I'd feel quite comfortable in trusting his word. These bosses are not the same as "dots" found on clay tablets or on ancient art. They're simply a construction byproduct.
On a closing note, no, I was not familiar with Wayne Herschel so I googled him and found his website. I perused some of the pages so I could get an understanding of what he's about. In short, I am not impressed. He strikes me as another modern New Age proponent advocating ancient aliens, Atlantis, the Giza Orion "theory," and any number of other misrepresentations of ancient cultures. My apologies for being so blunt, especially if you enjoy this fellow's work, but if you want to come at me in a debate environment, you had better choose your sources a lot more carefully. I prefer academically sound, peer-reviewed research, not something from the woo-woo cult.
