Hathor Cow at Sun~set Hill The connexion between sacred trees and standing stones can be traced in India, where megaliths were, as a matter of fact, erected under trees. Tacitus refers to the Groves of Mona (Anglesea), in which there were "altars."43 There are many dolmens on the island. The Council of Rouen, in the seventh century, denounced all those "who offer vows to trees, or wells, ...

... but vanished along with an enormous range of huge mammals before the Ice Ages. However, decorations on Siberian tombs dating from the 5th century BC depict animals resembling chalicotheres and a mysterious creature called the Nandi bear' reported from the forests of Kenya also sounds like a chalicothere, with large claws and a horse-like face. The myth of the megalithic yard New Scientist 4.12.93, Inside Science no. 67, p. 4 In 1967 Alexander Thom produced the results of many measurements of megalithic sites in Britain. By comparing the chances of distances between stones being random against what appeared to be a basic unit of length, which he called the megalithic yard', ...
54. The Nature and Scale of an Exodus Catastrophe Reassessed [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , some of the most impressive attempts to test Velikovsky's theories were undertaken by Dr Euan MacKie (1973, 1974/5 ). His papers remain model approaches to the problems because of their careful, discerning methodology, their attention to detail, and their scrupulously fair, objective weighing of the evidence. One of these articles employed knowledge of megalithic astronomy to assess the likelihood that cosmic catastrophes had occurred in historical times. MacKie's conclusions can be summarised as follows: It is virtually beyond dispute that some British megalithic alignments served as astronomical observatories. Archaeologically datable finds associated with some of the alignments, and radiocarbon dates for a number of them, place their construction in the period c ...

... 2 , p.62ff.). CHAOS AND CREATION* by Prof. Alfred de Grazia (Metron Publications, Box 1213, Princeton, New Jersey 08540; 1981). This is the first book of a series on Quantavolution, the theory that nature and life have originated and developed by sudden, large-scale and highly energetic changes. MEGALITHIC SCIENCE by Dr Douglas Heggie (Thames & Hudson,1981). A sober re examination of megalithic alignments and the use of statistical methods in their appraisal. Dr Heggie comes to the conclusion that there is insufficient evidence for the "megalithic yard" postulated by Thom. Solsticial and lunar alignments are found to be few and lacking in ...
56. Radiocarbon Dates and Cultural Change [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol III No 4 (Spring 1979) Home | Issue Contents Radiocarbon Dates and Cultural Change Euan W. MacKie Dr MacKie, author of "The Megalith Builders" and "Science and Society in Prehistoric Britain", is Assistant Keeper in the Hunterian Museum of the University of Glasgow. He has excavated at Mayan and Scottish sites and published numerous articles and historic journals, and is a founder member of the Society. If severe natural catastrophes as suggested by Velikovsky affected a wide area in the past, this is likely to have resulted in marked cultural discontinuities - rise and fall of cultures, movements of peoples, etc. In its important role of ...
57. Ancient Calendars [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1988 No 2 (Jan 1989) Home | Issue Contents Ancient Calendars by Dick Atkinson a criticism of the Rene Gallant talk extract in C & C Workshop 1987:1 M Gallant covers a lot of ground. Part of his talk reflects the Thom/Hawkins/Hoyle attitude to supposed megalithic astronomy. Another area dealt with is the history of calendars. The third aspect is the supposed light thrown on catastrophic theories by ancient calendars. It is suggested that calendars were needed for four purposes, roughly: agricultural, religious, administrative and historical. The agricultural requirement' is often alluded to but rarely examined. Gallant speaks vaguely of the ...

... Newgrange, which is 40 miles west of Dublin, which was an observatory. Interjection: You are thinking of Celtic culture? Questioner: It would be quite wrong to give it a name or attach any date to it. It was a vigorous society; if you travel in Ireland, or the Orkneys, or the Hebrides, where megalithic activity is so intense, it's astonishing and defies explanation. As far as the Chinese are concerned, the first emperor around 220 BC collected all the books together and destroyed them and after his death they had to reassemble their history from memory. Questioner: In South America the Jesuits destroyed all the documents and as far as the North ...
