Before the double Bluestone Circle was completed, a change of plans evidently took place; it was at this time that the grand idea for erecting the megalithic Sarsen Circle was conceived. The double Bluestone Circle was torn down to make room for the giant edifice, and the former was subsequently superseded in function by the simpler, yet just as effective, 19 Bluestone Horseshoe. Half years, in this device, could ...

Hathor Cow at Sun~set Hill The connexion between sacred trees and standing stones can be traced in India, where megaliths were, as a matter of fact, erected under trees. Tacitus refers to the Groves of Mona (Anglesea), in which there were "altars." 43 There are many dolmens on the island. The Council of Rouen, in the seventh century ... root nem, as do the Gaelic names for heaven, the pearl, the sacred grove and the stone shrine in a grove. The Celtic goddess "Nemetona" was evidently connected with all these. Much speculation has been indulged in regarding the original significance of the megalithic monuments of the Celtic area, but these are of little value without reference being made to surviving traces of the beliefs connected with them, and the records found in ancient manuscripts. The Celts erected and used standing stones for religious purposes. Mr. O.G.S. ...
24. Stonehenge: Temple of the Moon [Aeon Journal $]
... I unhesitatingly refer to it as the Temple of the Moon. This fact is borne out by close consideration and analysis of its most highly-visible features, the megalithic components that usually define the place in the viewer's mind. These consist of the Sarsen Circle; 30 upright megaliths (actually 29.5 since one member is only half size) with connecting lintels; the Trilithon Horseshoe consisting of 5 sets of uprights, each set of which is composed of 2 massive megaliths with a connecting lintel; and the smaller Bluestone Horseshoe of 19 slender stones ... to address. Thus, in one place, James states: "In order to pursue the theme, the story is taken up again nearer our own time: specifically the millennium which ran from about 2500 to 1500 years B.C. This could be loosely termed the megalithic millennium, for it was during this time that the huge monuments of standing stones were set up in north west Europe... The most famous of all megalithic sites is Stonehenge." (2) He also offers that: "Stonehenge gives us a ...
25. Forum Part Two [SIS C&C Review $]
... the world's sites, those in Mesoamerica would appear to indicate most clearly an 'Age of catastrophe' during the first millennium BC. Benny's citation of Illig's work would appear somewhat naive. For instance, an Anglophile can claim that he has known all along that the Wessex megaliths are older than the pyramids of Old Kingdom Egypt, and since they cannot be any younger than those of Cameroon, they also must date from the 7th millennium BC! Such a conclusion would be equally as valid as Illig's, since it is based on the ... are linked to publications by Euan MacKie, Moe Mandelkehr and Claude Schaeffer, are based on questionable interpretations of scientific data. The first member of SIS to question multiple extra-terrestrial catastrophes during the Bronze Age was Euan MacKie. Like Velikovsky, MacKie associated the conspicuous development of megalithic buildings around the globe to celestial disasters [24. If we were able, he argued, to reliably date the period these buildings were created, we would have a terminus ante quem for the last major catastrophe. This seems to be a very reasonable approach ...

... Clarke, 1952)? Did the discovery of bronze actually take place in Cornwall, from mixed Cornish copper/tin ores which appear in brightly coloured outcrops on the cliffs, together with native copper, arsenical coppers, and antimonial coppers? From the evidence of the megaliths much activity was going on in this area, while Stonehenge itself was at a convement crossroads for the copper and gold of Ireland and Wales and the tin and copper of Devon and Cornwall.' [7. The importance of western Britain in the metallurgical revolution ... [5: 'The mineral veins of Devon and Cornwall are often situated on the coast and the blue copper ores exposed on the face of the cliffs. The mixed copper/tin ores could have been easily worked by early man. It can be no coincidence that megalithic tombs are densely grouped around the copper/tin/lead deposits in the St Just area, while a whole group of early settlements ring Bodmin Moor'. True bronze was almost certainly discovered in this way and, in Dayton's view it is highly likely that ...

Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 81: May-Jun 1992 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects The Latte Stones When one thinks of megaliths, Stonehenge, Carnac, and the other classic sites of Europe come to mind. In actuality, megalithic ruins of sorts are to be found almost everywhere. In Oceania, for example, we have the Latte Stones found decorating many of the Mariana Islands in Micronesia: "Looking a bit like immense bird-baths, the Latte are shaped like truncated ... (halenges) capped with enormous hemispherical stones (tasas). They range in height from 5 to 20 feet with circumferences of up to 18 feet and weights that have been estimated at up to 30 tons. The columns are found throughout the Marianas, usually in double rows of up to six stones." Are the Latte Stones burial monuments or, as some are convinced, merely supports for the dwellings important personages in ancient Micronesia? But why would anyone build a house 20 feet above the ground? Even the Micronesians scoff ...
30. The McMaster University Symposium - June 1974 [SIS C&C Review $]
... - several centuries before Velikovsky's great double catastrophe of the 15th century BC- and since the peaks of declination have been well identified with the Sun, Moon and stars on uniformitarian assumptions (retrojecting mathematically the modern celestial order into the past) it is clear that the megaliths pose a problem for the concept of a catastrophic cosmology. The whole phenomenon of the standing stone observatories- their apparent relatively sudden appearance in large numbers in the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze periods at about the same time that Stonehenge was converted to a stone temple ... The Canadian Conference attracted some 290 people, including about 50 professional scientists, historians and archaeologists. Judging from conversations overheard and from questions put in the formal sessions, it also attracted a few Biblical fundamentalists, astrologers and devotees of pseudo-scientific beliefs like ley lines and world-wide megalithic cultures; the interventions of these caused some squirming among the relatively orthodox professionals present. The aim of the symposium was to focus debate on problems of fundamental importance for the catastrophic and uniformitarian viewpoints and much of the first two days was taken up with the problem ...
