1. Megalithic Lunar Observatories – A Critique (CONCLUDED) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. V No. 2 (Winter 1980) Home | Issue Contents Megalithic Lunar Observatories – A Critique (CONCLUDED)Thomas McCreery II COULD MEGALITHIC MAN HAVE DETERMINED THE LUNAR PERTURBATION? At no time has Alexander Thom ever discussed whether Megalithic man could actually have measured the very tiny wobble of the Moon. In this section, an attempt will be made to ascertain if such a project would have been viable. The method adopted is as follows: If we assume, as Thom does, that the motion of the Moon with respect to the Earth has been sensibly constant over the last few thousand years, then a study of the Moon's motion at recent ...
2. Megalithic Astronomy and Catastrophism [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 5: (Winter 1974-75) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered X" Home | Issue Contents Megalithic Astronomy and Catastrophism Euan W. MacKie Dr. MacKie is assistant keeper, Hunterian Museum, University of Glasgow, Scotland. This paper was presented at the McMaster University symposium, "Velikovsky and the Recent History of the Solar System,"June 16-19, 1974. "The dating of the megalithic observatories to the period from about 2000-1800 B.C . seems fairly secure and puts them firmly into the epoch preceding Velikovsky's major cataclysms of the 15th century B.C . In spite of this, the alignments so far identified do fit well with ...
3. Megalithic Lunar Observatories -- A Critique [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. V No. 1 (Fall 1979) Home | Issue Contents Megalithic Lunar Observatories- A Critique Thomas McCreery INTRODUCTION Professor Alexander Thom has spent the last thirty or forty years of his summer vacations patiently surveying Megalithic remains in the British Isles. He came to three main conclusions about Megalithic stone rings. Firstly, that they were not all circular, and that those that were not were intentionally laid out in the form of other geometric figures. Some had their perimeters extended into egg-shapes, while others were squashed into flattened circles. Secondly, a common unit of length, which Thom has termed the Megalithic yard, and which is 0.83 meters ...

5. Merlin and the Round Temple [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , well into the Iron Age. However this goes entirely against the grain of most modem thinking on the monument, which places it, along with the rest of the megaliths' of Britain and Europe, firmly in the Neolithic/Early Bronze Age, i.e . in the 3rd and 2nd millennia BC. Indeed the suggestion by ... virtual revolution in our understanding of Megalithic civilisation. More and more the discoveries of archaeology have revealed what can only be described as the astounding mathematical and astronomical knowledge of the megalith-builders. Professor Alexander Thom was the first to put the study of megalithic architecture on a firmly scientific basis. In his Megalithic Sites in Britain (1967), a ...
6. Krupp And Velikovsky [Journals] [Kronos]
... ,(24) both investigators have indicated that there is nothing erroneous in the supposition that the Earth's tilt could have subsequently corrected itself. (d & e) The megalithic sites at Ballochroy and Kintraw are used by Krupp as evidence that the distance from the Earth to the Sun has not changed in recent times as neither has the alignment ... , no evidence of the hierarchical society required to sustain "the astronomer priesthood" that Thom and his supporters envisage has been found. In fact, traditional prehistorians see the megalith-constructing societies as primarily egalitarian. Secondly, the megaliths have now been found to be not only older than was previously believed but their construction seems to have occupied a longer ...
7. The Past Comes Down [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... No 1 (July 1991) Home | Issue Contents The Past Comes Down A Proposal for a Drastically Shortened Chronology for Our Prehistory (Palaeo-, Neo-, and Megalithic) and early Advanced Civilizations, up to the Beginnings of Roman Hegemony by Dr. Heribert Illig [* This article has been translated for SIS from the original German ... drastic telescoping of our current chronology has the effect of making the megalithic and Celtic civilizations contiguous, to the extent that we may partly even speak of a quasi-contemporaneity of the Megalitheans' and the Celts, with ethnic intermingling. It is then no cause of wonder that megalithic buildings are frequently connected with Celtic cults - the best known example being ...
8. Earth Magic: A Review by FRANCIS HITCHING [Journals] [Kronos]
... Wescott Professor of Anthropology and Linguistics Drew University, Madison, N. J. Arthur Clarke once remarked that "every uncomprehended technology is, in principle, magic." The magic that Francis Hitching treats in this lucidly written and engrossing book is the vanished technology which he believes to have been made possible by the far-flung pre-Christian network of rough-hewn megaliths. Although Stonehenge in southern England is the best known of these megalithic complexes, Hitching does not confine himself to it, nor even to the British Isles or Europe, as a majority of prehistorians have done. Instead, he here gives us the most nearly global survey of megalithism that has appeared since the publication, in 1872, ...
