11. Megalithic Circles and Star Charts [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS C & C Review 2004:2 Incorporating Workshop 2004:3 (August 2004) Home | Issue Contents Megalithic Circles and Star Charts Moe Mandelkehr Now only the stones remain, bleak, leaning against the winds that blow across their silence. The fires are out. The midsummer sun has for years risen above empty, fallen rings. The people and their fears are gone. There are only the stones and they have no message for the visitor. ' A. Burl - on the stone circles of the British Isles. This paper discusses a couple of strange patterns associated with 2300 BC – the construction of huge megalithic monuments around the world and the creation ...

14. Ballochroy, Kintraw, and Mackie (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... the time the sites were set up, the disc had the same apparent diameter as it does now. Can this really be dismissed as chance, especially when there are many more indicated declinations of 23 54' for the centre of the disc at other standing stone sites? That Mr. Cardona does not understand the principles of the long megalithic alignments is shown by his quoting of Hawkins' words, that distant hills become "redundant". On the contrary they are absolutely essential to the theory of megalithic observatories since it is they, when pointed at by one or more stones, that determine the declination of a celestial body rising or setting on the horizon. Understanding this ...
15. The Reality of Extinctions [Journals] [Aeon]
... and North America. Some traumatic change in climate is implied- and it gives us one clue to a possible mechanism for extinctions. In order to pursue this theme, the story is taken up again nearer our own time: specifically the millennium which ran from about 2500 to 1500 years B. C. This could be loosely termed the megalithic millennium, for it was during this time that the huge monuments of standing stones were set up in north-west Europe. There were several episodes of megalithic activity and, in the resulting patterns of standing stones, we have a record- possibly the only record- of a mechanism which will be proposed below as a cause of extinctions. ...
16. Megaliths, Moon Cycles, and Movements of the Earth [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 6 No 3 (Feb 1986) Home | Issue Contents Megaliths, Moon Cycles, and Movements of the Earth Jill Abery Many authors have written in support of the idea that ancient man was deeply concerned with the movements of the Moon. Alexander Marshack has suggested that the engravings on batons' (objects of unexplained function) from the Upper Palaeolithic of western, central and eastern Europe were recordings of the lunar cycle.(1 ) Alexander Thom is well known for his work on British megalithic sites and the subsequent arguments about the validity of his conclusions. There is doubt concerning the accuracy of observation possible at many of the sites; nevertheless, ...
17. Megalithic Astronomy [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol 1 No 2 (Spring 1976) Home | Issue Contents Neolithic Stone Circles - their Purpose and Interpretation Megalithic Astronomy Euan MacKie Valuable evidence which must be considered in relation to theories of recent catastrophism is provided by the prehistoric standing stone observatories in the British Isles and Brittany. Enough work has been done on these Late Neolithic sites to make it clear that a large number of them were positioned and designed in order to mark accurately the rising and setting positions of celestial bodies and they thus provide a record of the state of parts of the Solar System about 4000 years ago. The disadvantage of this kind of evidence is that, since it depends on ...

About twelve miles south of Tarbert, on the west coast of the Kintyre peninsula, Scotland, one comes across the standing stones of Ballochroy. This megalithic site consists of three menhirs set in line with each other and a kist (or cist), i.e . a sepulchral chest constructed of stone slabs. Seven miles away is the tiny island of Cara. It has been noted that, at midwinter, the Sun sets behind Cara Isle as seen in line with the menhirs ...
20. The Use of the 7-Base Measuring System in Ancient Britain and the Continent [Journals] [Aeon]
... have shown elsewhere that the Gaulish Druids most likely had gained much of their astronomical and mathematical knowledge from their British cousins, and Stonehenge may very well have played a major role in those interchanges. To return to our present topic- the value of each grid block measurement in the Figures was determined as follows: In his extensive investigations at megalithic sites in Britain and on the Continent, Thom had uncovered what he considered to be a standard unit of measure that was used in their construction. With a value of 2.72', he named this measure the megalithic yard (MY). In my own work on Stonehenge, I discovered that this megalithic yard fitted the ...
