142. Kentish Catastrophes [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... The stone would therefore appear to have been formed in situ during the same period as the gravel. The stone is a hard cemented sandstone of a similar nature, as far as can be ascertained, as sarsen stones which are found in various places in surface deposits in southern England and western Europe and were much used in the building of megalithic monuments. Although a lot of work has apparently been done on the chemical and physical nature of such stone, it is obvious that the experts still have no idea of how, where or when such formations came into existence. It depends on silica being deposited out of solution in order to bind the original sand grains together and over ...
143. On Number as Artifact (Part 3: Conclusion) [Journals] [Horus]
... and neither was capable of being resolved within the then-existing parameters of mathematics. This series of articles began by considering two ways of measuring the length of a month: synodic and sidereal. In the second article we adduced the problematic 13, a number not much liked by modem society by nevertheless one which seems to have figured rather prominently in megalithic thought. We raised the question, as we have just done with the double spiral, of what this obviously symbolic number could have meant. It seems to have interchanged rather freely with the number 12. Today's scientist does not deal with number in this way, but there is what must be called an unsettling lack of specificity in ...
144. The Myth of the Goddess, Evolution of an image by Anne Baring and Jules Cashford [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , 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 ...
145. Book Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 3 No 3 (Jan 1981) Home | Issue Contents Book Reviews STONEHENGE AND ITS MYSTERIES by Michael Balfour (MacDonald and Jane's, London 1979, £6 .95) "This is the first heavily-illustrated book to explore the extraordinary story of Europe's most famous megalithic monument. It sets out in an original way both the facts and the mysteries of the origins, construction, and purposes of the stones, holes, banks and barrows of Stonehenge (which attracted 815,000 visitors in 1977)." So runs the dust-jacket blurb. "Heavily" illustrated is certainly the "mot juste" here: besides photographs from over one hundred years ...
146. A LEAD TO FOLLOW [Journals] [Pensee]
... discredit them when they do not. Approaching the revised chronology from a more conventionally archaeological standpoint, we find strong support for the abolition of Dark Ages in Greece and the eastern Mediterranean in articles by Isaacson and Greenberg, as well as a challenge by Stiebing (of which more later). On the other hand, MacKie's work on the megalithic monuments of north-eastern Europe and their probable astronomical alignments appears to pose problems for the kind of radical changes in the Earth's motion in the 15th and 8th centuries BC proposed by Velikovsky. Here it is encouraging to find contributors able and willing to go beyond discussions of the details of Velikovsky's claim and to bring the results of their own research ...

149. The Pyramid Age [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... began Egyptian history in the Middle Kingdom and half a millennium after Dynasty 4 and the Pyramid age. Amun Re rose to prominence in the Middle Kingdom associated with ram's horns (horns that spiralled): see also Eric Crew's review of The Goddess of the Stones, Workshop 1991:2 , p. 13. Cup and ring carvings on megalithic age stones, the spiral as a symbol, horns and rosettes etc became favourite motifs in diverse lands. Emmet, on p. 16, actually mentions the decapitation legend of Perseus and Medusa, and Lugh and Balor, associating them with a celestial event. Amun Re may represent the decapitated Atum Re of Old Kingdom Egypt. Atum ...

... his home as Washington D.C . instead of the correct Washington state. Our apologies. Mrs. Elizabeth Gaudry of Eastbourne draws our attention to an error in her letter in Workshop vol.2 , no.4 p.12. "The word "cave" should instead read "cove", i.e . the megalithic symbol for a womb. The centre of the second circle is marked by a phallic monolith. In the processional avenue, the female principle is represented by triangular stones." Again, our apologies. LAST WORD SIMPLE THOUGHTS Maybe we should ask Peter Simple of the Daily Telegraph to join our Monitor team. In his "Way of ...
