    Calendar

    In the mountains of the Balkans, up until the end of the 20th century, shepherds carried with them a calendar stick. It was a stick with a notch cut into it for every day of the year and a cross or some other symbol for major holy days, which in Serbia are all linked to major agricultural events and major solar cycle events. At the end of every day a piece of the stick up to the first notch, representing the previous day, was cut off from the stick. When the last piece was cut, the year was over.

    Is it possible that this calendar is the remnant of the ancient European lunisolar calendar which was devised by the builders of the first Central European henges 7000 years ago?

    The ancient people were very knowledgeable about astronomical events and especially the solar ones. They must have possessed a very advanced technology(ex. Antikythera Mechanism) or at least a vast knowledge watching the sky and calculating the astronomical events dates. But by the way, the shepherds of Serbia, do not go back 7000 years ago and the time they speak that specific language is not longer than 1000 years. Many nations dwell the Balkans now, but they have very different background. For ex. Albanians have lived an ethnic history, contrary to the Serbs, who have theirs a religious one. So the example you brought is the worst possible, Serbians are recent and they don't have a meaningful ethnic traditions.

    Zeus, there are many Serbians. Serbians have the most diverse genetic structure in Europe, which contains all the oldest European haplogroups. They all mixed in the Balkans and brought into the mix their own heritage. The historical serbs mentioned in roman chronicles are just one of many people who came to and went from the balkans....This is why Serbs did preserve all these ancient traditions and cultural and linguistic traits.
