143. The Myth of the Goddess, Evolution of an image by Anne Baring and Jules Cashford [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... of imagination and Jungian philosophy dismally fail to convince. The goddess becomes associated with water, bird, Moon, eggs, fish, serpent, vegetation, and various mammals and insects. Typically, the diagram produced to indicate an early representation of a butterfly looks to me more like the Cretan double axe and a fish goddess could just as well be a disillusioned owl. It is when the authors cannot resist fast-forwarding into later Egyptian or Greek examples that their Neolithic interpretations seem most inadequate. By the time the book turns to the megalithic cultures the goddess is seen associated with the tree of life, bulls' horns and sky worship. The last is still viewed only in terms of Moon cycles and the regular rhythms of the heavens associated with vegetation cycles on Earth. Already the images of the goddess are becoming far too complex to be explained in the simple terms of an earth mother so the authors have to resort to considering the metaphysical thought processes of these ancient peoples. Birds stand for sky, lions for earth and serpents, naturally, when they are ...

... constituted and ALL members will be able to confirm our title, or submit an alternative. A Draft Constitution is being prepared, based upon those for similar Learned Societies which will be offered for adoption. Officers and a working committee will be elected within the framework of the constitution.

Dr. Euan Mackie, an archaeologist specialising in the Scottish Iron age and Megalithic Astronomy, is an Assistant Keeper at the Hunterian Museum, Glasgow University. He has written a number of articles reviewing the catastrophic approach, and has even succeeded in breaking into the New Scientist with an article that will appear in a later newsletter. He has attended a number of the American symposia and is friendly with Dr. Velikovsky and other leading catastrophists. He appeared in the BBC documentary' Worlds in Collision'.

... . The rings are 5 to 100 meters in diameter and are surrounded by stone walls a foot or two tall. Some of the rings have "tails" that stretch out for hundreds of meters. From the air, the patterns have a striking resemblance to designs etched in Peru's Nazca plateau. Little is known about the circles and virtually nothing about their purpose.

150. How Ancient Is Vermont? [Science Frontiers Website]
... to the books Ancient Vermont and The Search for Lost America. Two aspects of this "problem" are discussed in the article: The supposed Ogam writing discovered in New England, and The many peculiar stone structures in the same region. A. Ross and P. Reynolds have examined the purported Ogam inscriptions first-hand and are emphatic that are not of Celtic origin, although they are probably deliberately inscribed in many instances. On the other hand, the strange stone structures in New England, particularly Vermont, do bear some resemblance to megalithic remains in Europe. The authors are not as anxious to pass these off as Colonial root cellars as are their American allies in the Establishment. Ross and Reynolds suggest that much more work needs to be done here before the purposes of these chambers and standing stones can be determined. (Ross, Ann, and Reynolds, Peter; "Ancient Vermont," Antiquity, 52:100, 1978.) Reference. Several of these enigmatic New England chambers are detailed in our Handbook: Ancient Man.
