... important creative act and probably preceded and followed by solemn rituals. The first set of furnaces at one site were accomanied by the burial of several newborn llamas. Offerings were also made when furnaces were abandoned. New thoughts on Avebury New Scientist 20.4 .91, pp. 44-48 and The Independent 22.11.90 The huge megalithic complex at Avebury contains Britain's largest stone circle. Little was recorded of it until the 17th century but since then the activities of antiquarians Aubrey and Stukely have shaped our perceptions of Avebury in such a way as to dominate all attempts to understand and reconstruct the complexities of the site. ' Recently new evaluation has been done using previously overlooked ...

... century AD. In southern France one researcher claims to have found prehistoric religious cave paintings on the summit of a mountain, associated with a naturally sculpted face'. Although she insists ochre pigments from the walls have been scientifically assessed, other scientists dismiss them as natural marks by lichens, or graffiti left by 2nd World War refugees. Undisputed megalithic art work has been discovered in Ireland. Spiral engravings and concentric circles covered some new stones found lining a burial chamber constructed by Neolithic people over 5,000 years ago. In England a wheel, found preserved at Flag Fen and dating from 1,000 BC, reveals the Bronze Age people to have been cleverer than previously thought ...

... 4000 years ago. They do however suggest that refugees fled to nearby southern Mesopotamia, which had somehow escaped the disaster, and have yet to explain how a drought can last for 300 years. Astral worship on Menorca Traveller, Autumn 1993, p. 39 Despite its small size, the Balearic island of Menorca holds Europe's highest concentration of megalithic monuments. Of the three types of structure, talyots, navetas and taulas, the last are thought to indicate astral worship by the Bronze Age people who lived there 3000 years ago. They consist of a single upright topped by a large horizontal stone. They all face the same way, which is taken to be south where, ...

275. Exploring The Saturn Myth [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the handsome hero David (divine aspect of the king) and Goliath. The latter name has a Luwian suffix or ending that may be associated with the sea peoples and the Philistines. Originally the name could have been (o )G-ol or og-el (great god) and appears to be very nearly Golan (heights), with its megaliths , and analogies with Og the biblical giant who survived the flood by sitting on Noah's Ark. I say this because the story of Samuel decapitating the unfortunate Agag could be a variation on the same theme (and name) representing regurgitated myth in a human dimension (with features of sacrifice). Ag + ag appears to have the ...

... the water falls through the hole in the mill-stone. It was then that the sea became salt." Here ends Snorri's tale ( appendix #7 ). Three fundamental and far-reaching themes have been set: the broken mill, the whirlpool, the salt. As for the curse of the miller women, it stands out alone like a megalith abandoned in the landscape. But surprisingly it can also be found, already looking strange, in the world of Homer, two thousand years before. [n4 It was J. G. von Hahn (Sagwissenschaftliche Studien [1876], pp. 401f.) who first pointed to the similarity of the episodes in Snorri's Edda and ...

... placed near the centre of the temple. (Diagram 2.) This gateway was cut out of a slab of greenish-grey andesite, an igneous rock of great hardness. It is about 10 feet high by 122 feet wide, and 12 feet thick, and weighs about ten tons. This gateway is not only a magnificent example of monolithic megalithic architecture: it is also a marvel of sculpture, for the upper part of the front of this massive portal is encrusted with a most beautifully executed, stupendously rich relief, while its back is adorned with wellbalanced niches and escalinated cornices. When one first beholds the intricate carvings on the front of the gateway one is thoroughly bewildered. ...

... ) One of the books I've read, , by Aidan Meehan, traces labyrinths back to the earth goddess myths. How convoluted the earth goddess myths can be! Meehan starts with the chevron, goes through spirals, key patterns (although he doesn't like the term), other goddess symbols, and drawings of plans of court cairns (megalithic tombs) found in Ireland, c. 5000 BC. The cairns supposedly represent the goddess in a pregnant state, and the maze aspect to the tombs is a birth ritual. Then he associates Neolithic carvings with warrior-hero myths. I find it fascinating! But how accurate is it? Dave Talbott says These are of course the associations ...
