81. Mythic Ireland, by Michael Dames [Journals] [SIS Review]
... carried in a perambulating procession around the hill. The funeral of Aine also took place on St John's Eve, a marvellous affair as it involved the fairies - the fair or bright ones (little pieces of Aine). The treatment by Dames of the tale of Dermot and Graney [2 ] is superb. There are more than 300 megalithic tombs in Ireland associated with the divine pair. Cnoc Grean is a hill to the NE of Lough Gur, known colloquially as bright cheeks. The Giant's Grave on top of the hill is an effigy of Graney ( = brightness and beauty) according to Dames, and hundreds of stones are laid out in the form of her long ...

83. How Much Did They Know? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in preparation). Here again it is disappointing to find no mention of the possibility of disturbances to the cosmic order - the more so as Stecchini had contributed two articles (one entitled "The Inconstant Heavens"!) to The Velikovsky Affair in 1966. The evidence of cosmic stability provided by the alignments of the Great Pyramid and of megalithic stone circles is one of the strongest arguments against a full acceptance of Velikovsky's ideas, and it would be useful to have some informed debate on this topic. One would also expect Tompkins to be aware of the existence of a serious challenge to the traditional Egyptian chronology, and yet he refers to Sothic cycles as if their reality were ...
... .2 Perry's arguments give the impression of a striving to distort facts to fit an untenable theory. Gold, amber, and jet were all native to Britain, never to Egypt or the Mediterranean, and none of these barrows can owe anything to Egyptian inspiration. He is equally on dangerous ground when he argues that the builders of the Megalithic temples of Avebury, Stonehenge, etc., were "forerunners of others from the Eastern Mediterranean", and is so carried away by his fancy that he seriously argues that "part of the wave of cultural influence" from Egypt brought the builders of Megalithic monuments first to Britain and thence on to America's shores.3 I must ...

... el-Amarna, for which he is preparing the publications. He is now Field Director of the excavations of the Embalming House of the Apis Bulls, Memphis, for the American Research Center in Egypt. DR EUAN MacKIE studied prehistory at Cambridge and has worked as a field archaeologist in central America, Europe and, in recent years, at the megalithic sites in Scotland. He is Assistant Keeper of Glasgow University's Hunterian Museum and a lecturer in prehistory and archaeology at the University. As well as excavation reports and numerous articles in specialist and other journals, Dr MacKie's writings include books on prehistoric archaeology - Scotland: An Archaeological Guide (London, 1974), Science and Society in Prehistoric ...
87. The Sword in the Stone [Journals] [SIS Review]
... copper and tin are found together, already mixed in an ore form [5 ]: The mineral veins of Devon and Cornwall are often situated on the coast and the blue copper ores exposed on the face of the cliffs. The mixed copper/tin ores could have been easily worked by early man. It can be no coincidence that megalithic tombs are densely grouped around the copper/tin/lead deposits in the St Just area, while a whole group of early settlements ring Bodmin Moor'. True bronze was almost certainly discovered in this way and, in Dayton's view it is highly likely that it was thus worked for many years before anyone discovered that tin, existing ...
88. An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC. Part I: The Archaeological Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... p. 109. 156. N. N. Ambreseys: "Value of Historical Records of Earthquakes", Nature 232 (1971), p. 379. 157. Schaeffer, op. cit. [4 ], p 538; see also Gimbutas, op. cit. , p.58. 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. The work of the French archaeologist Claude Schaeffer, as highlighted in Mandelkehr's paper, was certainly the first to stress the widespread character of ...

... the journal Kronos. These, of course, are not the last word either, but hopefully, the discussions can continue until facts instead of opinions become dominant. Letters Velikovsky suggest that around 1500BC and 700BC the Earth was suffered near-collisions in which its rotation was affected and its axis was shifted. If Velikovsky is right then the alignments of megalithic (3500-1500BC) standing stones should show evidence of such changes. But they do not. They remain exactly (typically within 0.05 degree) on targets set by an undisturbed orbital geometry. [Books on megalithic alignments tend to be either specialized, superficial, sensational, or (in view of rapid progress) out of date ...

... . Data from other parts of the world would help to elucidate which of the two was mainly responsible. It is certainly very tempting to view these large fluctuations in the local magnetic field of Egypt in terms of Velikovskian catastrophism, and we have therefore attempted to translate this data into the revised (e .g . Glasgow) chronology. Megalithic Astronomy Debate source: NEW SCIENTIST 18/6 /81, p. 750-3 Dr Clive Ruggles of University College Cardiff has written a lucid and stimulating account of a conference held in March 1980 at the University of Newcastle discussing megalithic astronomy and the work of Prof Thom in particular. The megalithic era ended some 1500 years before the Roman ...
