171. An Anasazi Ley Line? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 111: May-Jun 1997 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects An Anasazi Ley Line? A popular archeological pastime in Britain is "ley hunting" or the search for alignments of ancient sites. The underlying premise is that the peoples who constructed Stonehenge, Avebury, and other megalithic sites had a penchant for aligning them, even when they were separated by many miles. Exactly why anyone would wish to go to such trouble escapes the modern mind. American archeologists generally eschew ley hunting, but S. Lekson, from the University of Colorado, was surprised to find that three important Anasazi sites in the Southwest are actually aligned with high precision along Longitude 107 57'. The three sites are: Aztec Ruins and Chaco Canyon (New Mexico) and Casas Grandes (Mexico). Even though the first and last are separated by about 450 miles, all sites are within 1 kilometer (5/8 of a mile) of the north-south line. Lekson maintains that an alignment ...
172. Standing Stones In North Carolina? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 114: Nov-Dec 1997 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Standing Stones In North Carolina? A North Carolina reader recently submitted the accompanying photograph of very large, vertically oriented stones that, if found in western Europe, would be quickly assigned to the megalithic culture. Although similar upright stones are known in New England, we have not heard of any in North Carolina before. The stones in question are located in the Boone/Blowing Rock region of western North Carolina near Foscoe, very close to Grandfather Mountain (second highest peak east of the Mississippi). Although they could well be a product of natural forces, they stand out like the proverbial "sore thumb." (Davant, Charles, III; personal communications, July 2 and August 18, 1997.)

173. Basalt Synthesis Invented Over 3,000 Years Ago! [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 119: Sep-Oct 1998 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Basalt Synthesis Invented Over 3,000 Years Ago! Basalt is a blackish volcanic rock that is hard and durable. In nature it sometimes occurs in long prisms of hexagonal cross section. In fact, ancient Micronesians quarried multiton basalt prisms to build their fantastic megalithic complex of 92 artificial islets at Nan Madol. (SF#45) The inhabitants of ancient Mesopotamia had no basalt quarries at hand. Indeed, building stone of any kind was exceedingly scarce. What the Mesopotamians of the second century B.C. did have in abundance was alluvial silt. From this unpromising material they were able to make their pottery, writing tablets, and art objects. However, for grinding grain and engineering structures they needed something harder and stronger. Their innovative solution was: artificial basalt made from silt. They simply melted the silt and let it cool slowly. Sounds simple, but three remarkable intellectual and technical advances were required: The ...

... and most provocative. First among them is his insistence on the pivotal importance of the Iberian peninsula as a maritime launching-point for emigrations not only to America but to Ireland as well. Next is his convincing claim that the Ogamic script which preceded the Latin alphabet in the British Isles originated as a graphic derivative of finger-spelling. Third is his survey of the hundreds of stone chambers and phallic pillars which he and his co-workers of The Epigraphic Society have discovered or revisited in New England and his postulation of links between them and the better known megalithic structures of Western Europe. And fourth is his suggestion that much of the seemingly abstract element in Amerindian graphic decor, especially from the Pueblo area in and around Arizona, may be a stylised version of Old World scripts. Unfortunately, Fell seriously weakens his essentially strong thesis by presenting, in a dogmatic and unqualified manner, illustrative material that is dubious at best and erroneous at worst. Predictably, most of his errors fall in the domain of linguistics, of which (like all too many epigraphers) he is lamentably ignorant ...

178. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART ONE: HISTORICAL DISTURBANCES: CHAPTER EIGHT: THE OBLITERATION OF HUMAN SIGNS [Quantavolution Website]
... acted but were not totally destructive-- mountains that were not leveled, elevations by-passed by cross-tides, humans buried swiftly in a clay that quickly hardened, and so on. If at the time of Stonehenge about 3500 years ago there were a million people in Britain (for they were building other sites as well and carrying on the chores of living), and if we find no sign of them, either we have not searched very well, or there was some catastrophe that erased all signs. The very existence of the megaliths does, however, discount the notion of complete disaster-- there were no Washington Scablands barrier-bursting floods, or giant oceanic tsunamis or Biblical overturning of mountains. And of there were a few utensils found, as there have been, and even more remarkable, a few bones (unfortunately yet not found), we should say that certain forces such as atmospheric and chemical ones may have occurred- an icy climate may have come and gone, a great flooding may have happened, a devastating fire may have fallen from the ...

... is large enough to hold a huge stone, which is nevertheless missing. If Stonehenge was actually used for observations of the stars or planets and needed to be changed, could it have been because the apparent motions of the observed objects changed? Hawkins notes that one of the arrangements appears to have been abandoned suddenly and suggests that this happened because the builders discovered that the device did not work as expected. Perhaps they discovered that suddenly it no longer worked the way it had previously worked. OTHER STRUCTURES Many other attempts at explaining megalithic monuments similar to Stonehenge have been made. The most notable is probably the work of Alexander Thom. The work of Thom and others is available in the literature, as are discussions offering counter-arguments to these ideas. Entire books can and have been written about this subject, and analysis of each of these theories is beyond the intended scope of this book. However, some quotes from an article by Andrew Fleming demonstrate that we would be acting purely on faith if we considered these theories as "proof' of uniformity before the ...

... , C&C Workshop 1995:1). Lester Mitcham, Bernard Newgrosh and Tony Rees have all written to point out that he was not a Pharaoh- he was the king of Ammon. The Ammonites lived just east of the trans-Jordan tribal territory of Gad. Also there were other people called Nahash or 'serpent' within the Bible (cf. I Chronicles 2:16 and II Samuel 17:27-29). Saturn or the Sea Peoples? I recently visited Corsica, a wild and mountainous island with some very interesting megalithic sites. As with most such sites, there is more unknown than known about their function and the people who constructed them, so much that is written about them is surmise based on orthodox ideas about the prehistory of the Mediterranean region. I therefore looked forward to seeing some of these sites for myself, to judge the plausibility of the current theories. The story goes that the original megalithic people inhabited the island from around 4000 BC until 1400 BC, when it was invaded and taken over by the Torreans, or tower ...
