61. Earth In Chaos by Peter M. James [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1995 No 1 (June 1995) Home¦ Issue Contents REVIEW Earth In Chaos by Peter M. James (Polar Publishing, PO Box 4220, Stn. C, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, T2T 5NI, CD$26 50 plus p&p) Peter James (no relation to the the author of Centuries of Darkness) must have become interested in the temples/calendars of megalithic man when he was studying for his geology degree at Imperial College, London, and has visited many sites in the British Isles and in France. He considers the frenzied construction activity during the thousand years of the second millennium before Christ and seeks the reason for expending such a lot of effort and so much valuable time when finding enough food to stay alive probably engaged a significant proportion of ancient man's waking hours. For the most part, James finds the usual lines of reasoning lacking in conviction; this book is his personal account of the questions he asks and the answers he finds most appropriate. Early in the development ...

... Moundbuilders raised much speculation. Even today we marvel at their immense, flat-topped temple mounds, the huge earthen enclosures, and the meticulously wrought artifacts of copper, mica, and clay. Squier and Davis objectively described the features of this New World civilization in words and drawings. It is the drawings, though, that really capture the reader. They are superb, almost overwhelming. Rude Stone Monuments in all Countries: Their Age and Uses J. Fergusson, 1872, 578 pp., $26.95p Fergusson's famous compilation of worldwide megalithic monuments is a fit complement to our photocopied edition of Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley, from 1848. Fergusson has filled his book with 233 line drawings of artifacts from the megalithic period. The emphasis is on the massive monuments, but you'll also see some sketches of pottery and inscribed stones. Naturally, there are long chapters on the British Isles, Ireland, and Europe; but the author also demonstrates how the megalithic culture extended into North Africa, the Middle East, and India. It is a pleasure to page ...

64. Observing the Moon on the Horizon during the Early Bronze Age [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... " Superimposed upon this long cyclic variation in the monthly movements of the moon is a much smaller "wobble" known as the minor perturbation, whose amplitude is only nine arc minutes and which has a period of 173.3 days. This perturbation is only noticeable at major or minor standstills, because at other times it is obscured by the much greater movements of the long cycle. Since the publication of his first paper on the subject in 1954,[1 Prof. Alexander Thom has done much to advance the idea that some British megalithic sites had an astronomical function. He has argued that certain stones were intended to point to features on the horizon which marked the rising or setting points of the sun or moon at solstices or lunar standstills. The most elaborate of Thom's interpretations, however, is his suggestion that some of the sites were "lunar observatories," used to detect the minor perturbation of the lunar orbit, perhaps for purposes of eclipse prediction, through the observation of certain moonsets or moonrises at standstills.[2 To the controversial literature that has ...

65. Ancient Calendars [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1988 No 2 (Jan 1989) Home¦ Issue Contents Ancient Calendars by Dick Atkinson a criticism of the Rene Gallant talk extract in C& C Workshop 1987:1 M Gallant covers a lot of ground. Part of his talk reflects the Thom/Hawkins/Hoyle attitude to supposed megalithic astronomy. Another area dealt with is the history of calendars. The third aspect is the supposed light thrown on catastrophic theories by ancient calendars. It is suggested that calendars were needed for four purposes, roughly: agricultural, religious, administrative and historical. The agricultural 'requirement' is often alluded to but rarely examined. Gallant speaks vaguely of 'the days that pass before the next operation in the fields'. The picture which might spring to mind is of a modern farmer consulting his almanac or specialist diary before spraying for potato blight. This was not the approach of Neolithic farmers. Crops- mostly mixed- were harvested when ripe. They did not germinate, flower, fruit and ripen in a neatly coordinated rhythm, like ...

68. How Much Did They Know? [SIS C&C Review $]
... of ancient astronomical understanding, and he follows their line in stressing the importance in archaic thought of the Precession of the Equinoxes. (Evidently he was in touch with them whilst both books were in preparation). Here again it is disappointing to find no mention of the possibility of disturbances to the cosmic order- the more so as Stecchini had contributed two articles (one entitled "The Inconstant Heavens"!) to The Velikovsky Affair in 1966. The evidence of cosmic stability provided by the alignments of the Great Pyramid and of megalithic stone circles is one of the strongest arguments against a full acceptance of Velikovsky's ideas, and it would be useful to have some informed debate on this topic. One would also expect Tompkins to be aware of the existence of a serious challenge to the traditional Egyptian chronology, and yet he refers to Sothic cycles as if their reality were beyond question. But this apart, Stecchini's work is most impressive, and one feels that it would have justified expansion to form a book in its own right. The research set out by ...

... currently 272. Although it was well down on the peak of some years ago, it reflected great credit on the members for their continued loyalty, notwithstanding continuing problems in producing regular issues of SIS Review. Priority would be given to producing the second issue of Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop and Volume VIII of the Review (which would be mainly devoted to the Society's highly successful tenth anniversary Egyptian tour), with a target date of the end of 1986. Looking ahead, the major event of 1987 would be a tour of Scottish megalithic sites. An excellent and varied programme had been arranged with a great deal of hard work by Peter James, Brian Moore, Sandra Parker and Nick Thorpe. Finally, the Chairman paid tribute to the efforts of all members of Council and both editorial teams, while regretting the loss through resignation of David Rohl. The Treasurer, David Salkeld, then presented the accounts for 1985, which had previously been circulated to those present. One marked difference was that they covered the calendar year 1985, whereas the 1983/84 accounts ...
