21. Kintraw and Bibby (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... the Kintraw deposit with those from Broadlaw is not consistent with normal petrofabric comparisons, for both Broadlaw and Kintraw represent totally dissimilar geological environments. Had Bibby and MacKie wished to compare the Kintraw fabric with similar types, they should have excavated other stone horizons in the Kintraw area especially since this region abounds in ledges similar to the one overlooking the megalithic site. I make no apologies for using the Cary outwash pebble contour in my original article. It is true that the Cary outwash was formed under different geological conditions from the stone layer at Kintraw, but so were the solifluction deposits at Broadlaw and the man-arranged fabric at Sheephill Fort. It is therefore agreed that comparison between any of ...
22. The Cairns Of Kintraw [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. IV No. 3 (Spring 1979) Home | Issue Contents The Cairns Of Kintraw Dwardu Cardona Copyright (c ) 1979 by Dwardu Cardona. Dr. Euan MacKie's archaeological excavation at Kintraw, Argyllshire, Scotland, has been hailed by some as a dramatic confirmation of the astronomical function of this megalithic site. According to Alexander Thom's earlier work, the site consists of what he mistook for a small circle of stones approximately twenty feet in diameter, an outlying menhir twelve feet high, a fallen stone which would have been some seven feet high, and a ruined cairn the diameter of which is slightly over fifty feet. The arrangement, as shown ...
23. Observing the Moon on the Horizon during the Early Bronze Age [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... of 173.3 days. This perturbation is only noticeable at major or minor standstills, because at other times it is obscured by the much greater movements of the long cycle. Since the publication of his first paper on the subject in 1954,[1 ] Prof. Alexander Thom has done much to advance the idea that some British megalithic sites had an astronomical function. He has argued that certain stones were intended to point to features on the horizon which marked the rising or setting points of the sun or moon at solstices or lunar standstills. The most elaborate of Thom's interpretations, however, is his suggestion that some of the sites were "lunar observatories," used ...
24. Stonehenge: Temple of the Moon [Journals] [Aeon]
... there is one aspect that I feel more than a little qualified to address. Thus, in one place, James states: "In order to pursue the 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... The most famous of all megalithic sites is Stonehenge." (2 ) He also offers that: "Stonehenge gives us a lead. Here the final stage unequivocally points to midsummer sunrise; it is ...
25. Tiahuanacu In The Andes. Ch.6 Mountains And Rifts (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... From "Earth in Upheaval" © 1955 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Tiahuanacu In The Andes In the Andes' at 16o 22' south latitude, a megalithic city was found at an elevation of 12 500 feet, in a region where corn will not ripen. The term "megalithic" fits the dead city only in regard to the great size of the stones in its walls, some of which are flattened and joined with precision. It is situated on the Altiplano, the elevated plain between the Western and Eastern Cordilleras, not far from Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America and the highest navigable lake in the world, on the ...
26. Skara Brae: A Time Capsule of Catastrophism? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... hypothesis might be found in an earlier observation by MacKie. Discussing the Ring of Brodgar - which seems likely to have been associated with the Skara Brae settlement - he pointed out that "many of the tall thin standing stones have been snapped off near the ground, some probably in ancient times" and that the same phenomenon occurs at other megalithic sites . As well as being sudden the event that destroyed Skara Brae was of considerable magnitude, as the nature of the reoccupation reveals. MacKie again: "The first hearth of the re-occupation period .. . was laid on a thickness of about 3ft of clean sand which had presumably blown in through the wrecked roof ...
27. The Origin Map [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:2 (Dec 2002) Home | Issue Contents The Origin Map www.iuniverse.com/bookstore/book_detail.asp?isbn= 0%2D595%2D73692%2D0 Book: The Origin Map: Discovery of a Prehistoric, Megalithic, Astrophysical Map and Sculpture of the Universe by Thomas G Brophy. (See also, Update on Nabta, p.14). On a desolate plain in the Egyptian Sahara desert, west of Aswan, there is a very remote prehistoric site called Nabta Playa. There, a recently discovered complex of extremely ancient man-made megalithic structures have baffled the archaeologists who excavated them. An insight ...

... para., line 4 – delete the words as evidence against'. Page 65, 2nd col., 5th para., line 5 - a biogenesis' should read abiogenesis'. Report on Autumn Meeting, 2005 This was held at the Harlequin, Redhill on the 22nd October. The three presentations were connected by the thread of megalithic monuments, but could not otherwise have been more disparate. The eternal question of the where, why and how of megalithic structures from western Europe to North America, were approached from the angles of measurement, geology and cosmic catastrophe, leaving the question of why the monuments were built unanswered. Our first speaker was Christopher Knight, co-author ...

... realised that his conclusions about the latter were just one in a long line of speculation but thought his interdisciplinary approach was more likely to produce results than the narrower expert' view point of some of the archaeologists, astronomers and mathematicians who had tried their hand at explaining the purpose of Stonehenge. All the evidence led to the conclusion that the megalithic people had been simple farmers led by a priesthood and the key to understanding their religious concepts lay in the interpretation of the symbols which are found carved on stones, in graves and on grave goods, throughout the megalithic world. This was a huge subject upon which this talk could only touch, but we were given examples from three ...
30. Observations At Kintraw [Journals] [Kronos]
... not visible from the backsight on the ledge overlooking the menhir. From the results of our observations at the backsight we contend that this particular dispute is easily resolved. Other work done by us on the ledge indicates that it could not have been used as an observation platform to determine the exact day of the midwinter solstice. Of the many megalithic sites claimed by Professor Thom as remains of prehistoric observatories none has proved more contentious than the proposed midwinter solstitial site at Kintraw (A . Thom 1971, pp. 37-40). This consists of cairns and a menhir which Thom claims indicates a horizon foresight, the col between Beinn Shiantaidh and Beinn a' Chaolais on the island of ...
