... exploits of Sargon and Tiglath-Pileser with overtones of celestial prototypes. While Sieff and Sweeney are totally enthusiastic about the Mesopotamian reconstruction they do not accept the later developments and Whelton describes them as accepting 'half the Heinsohn loaf'. Derek Shelley-Pearce, 1988 The Life and Death of Megaliths Books Reviewed Dolmens for the Dead- Megalith building throughout the world by Roger Joussaume (Hachette 1985) The Stonehenge People- Life and death at the world's greatest stone circle by Aubrey Burl (J.M.Dent 1987) Dolmens for the Dead is not an easy read but ... be invaluable as a text book for anyone interested in pursuing in great detail what is currently known about megalithic burial structures. Over half the book deals with western and northern Europe, not surprisingly, as here are found the greatest numbers of the oldest and most studied dolmens and stone circles. The survey is completed by briefer considerations of Africa, Arabia, the Caucasus, India, the Far East and South America. It is from a consideration of recent customs and beliefs in these other areas that Joussaume is able throw light upon ...
32. The Aubrey Holes Of Stonehenge [Kronos $]
... ¦ Issue Contents The Aubrey Holes Of Stonehenge Alban Wall What usually comes to mind at the mention of Stonehenge is a picture of huge stones standing and lying in general disarray on a green field somewhere in southern England. As I will try to show, although these megaliths did form a vital part of that ancient monument, by no means were they the only or most important element in the structure. As is now generally assumed, Stonehenge was built in three separate phases. Each one of these phases was partially connected to, ... : Is there any evidence that the ancient Britons ever used a 13-month calendar? To which I answer: Not any more than there is any evidence that they ever used a 16-month calendar. Yet Thom, basing his calculations on the collective declinations of a multitude of megalithic sites, arrived at just such a conclusion.(12) If Thom's "calendar," scattered as it is all the way from Cumberland to the outer Hebrides, can be accepted as valid then so should the one delineated above. In not one single ...
33. Stonehenge: What Was It? [Horus $]
... the longer the period over which observations were made, the greater the expected degree of accuracy. Using this procedure, they would have found that, in the long run, an error of one day accumulated in 33 months. The Sarsen Circle Consisting of 30 upright megaliths with connecting lintels, one being half as large as the others, this component was part of the temple design of Stonehenge and was not used in the actual measurement of the calendar month. Here, the 29112 megaliths symbolize the 291/2 days of the ... cycle. There are many examples in ancient history of luni-solar calendar systems based on the fact that there are 235 lunar months in 19 solar years. I will state at the outset that this was the purpose, or at least the end result, of the mysterious megalithic structure called Stonehenge. Stonehenge Since the solar year contains 365 days, the lunar month 29 days, and the Sun-Moon cycle 19 years, we should expect these numbers to be prominently reflected in the design of the site. This is indeed the case! Over ...

Myths, Megaliths and the End of the Third Millennium BC In considering Mandelkehr's case for a global upheaval c.2300 BC, it would be worthwhile to place it in context with the conclusions of other catastrophist researchers.

There MacKie tentatively linked the major upheavals that terminated the Old Kingdom in Egypt (VIth Dynasty), the Harappan civilization in India and the late Neolithic in Malta, Iberia and northwestern Europe. MacKie has also considered the evidence of the megalithic "observatories" of prehistoric Europe in terms of catastrophist theories (" Megalithic Astronomy and Catastrophism", Pensée IVR X, 1974/5, pp. 5-20). Most probably built to monitor the movement of heavenly bodies, "megalithic observatories" were erected ...

... obliterated. Huge stone and brick structures were erected in Middle Americas, Mesopotamia Egypt and elsewhere. These coupled a rapidly redeveloped service of astronomy to the frantic needs of absolute rulers and priesthoods for protection against deluges and for electrical roadways to heaven. Tunnels, mazes, megaliths, ziggurats, and pyramids were built. The time was after 5700 B. P.( 3700 B. C.). Copper was dug, and bronze and brass were made of it, with the help of tin and lead. Euan MacKie's work ... megalithic cultures places this immense human effort, that is today exhibited in ruins throughout Europe and the Western Mediterranean, between Jovean and Venusian times [20. He accepts Euro-Near East communication, but reserves judgment as to whether the West European culture is indigenous or derived. My position is that the megalithic cultures of Spain, France, Ireland, England and Scandinavia are survivors of the larger realms of Atlantis. Painstaking attempts to demonstrate that Stonehenge and other megalithic formations are accurate astronomical indicators by retrocalculations of the present order of the skies have ...

40. The Goddess of the Stones and the Charged Cosmic Body [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1991 No 2 (Jan 1992) Home¦ Issue Contents The Goddess of the Stones and the Charged Cosmic Body by Eric Crew The Goddess of the Stones: The Language of the Megaliths, by G.T. Meaden (Souvenir Press, 1991) Archaeological remains appear to relate to striking physical phenomena, giving rise to activities of ancient peoples based on supernatural beliefs. This article examines the merits of two very different hypotheses concerning ubiquitous rock carvings; one based on meteorological processes and the other on ... or female), just as many people even today believe that crop circles are most likely caused by some form of extra-terrestrial intelligence. Those who believe they must all be hoaxes show a similar degree of credulity, in the guise of sophistication. Meaden claims that some megalithic 'circles' which appear to have a very advanced form of mathematical structure are a simple consequence of their origin as the shape appearing in standing crops, then regarded as a sign from the gods. It is easy to mark the perimeter with small objects soon after ...
