... vestiges of many Druid rings, testimony to their sacredness in the eyes of the prehistoric peoples. A well-known petrographer of the Geological Survey, Mr. H. H. Thomas, several years ago apparently settled the vexed question as to the origin of the "blue stones" (or "Foreign stones") in the inner ring of Stonehenge as having been brought from Prescelly to that famous astronomical temple on Salisbury Plain. To the original builders of Stonehenge there must have been some great and sacred incentive when they undertook such a mission as to convey the stones so considerable a distance. Mr. Thomas, be it noted, had before him none of the evidence to influence ...

182. Ice Cores and Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... outside of it. Further it contained neither silver, nor many of the metallic elements necessary to colour glass and glazes such as cobalt and antimony. All the technological developments of the Bronze Age had to originate outside of the Fertile Crescent and, what is more, in western Europe where deposits of tin and copper existed. Forty years ago Stonehenge and the megaliths of Europe were firmly believed to date at the most to 1000BC. Then came Carbon 14 (C14) dating showing that Stonehenge and the megaliths of Europe were older than the Pyramids. It has also shown, a fact ignored by Egyptologists, that the Pyramids are some 500 years younger than was thought and fit in ...

... in those remote periods? Mrs. Dobson, discussing the overlap between the various archaeological periods, makes this remark: "It is not easy to tell the implements of the Megalithic from those of the full Bronze Age, for in spite of the advantages of metal, flint tools were used even down to Roman times."14 At Stonehenge, in the Disc barrows, a foreign and later development of the Long barrows, are found weapons of bronze and stone together. Perforated and un-perforated flint axes and sometimes flint celts are discovered in the same barrows with iron, thus proving that they were in, simultaneous use.15 Such indications point to the fact that the particular ...

... back to the Bronze Age present a remarkable affinity, as for example the figures engraved on Kivik's tomb in Sweden, to the extent that a 19th century scholar suggested the monument was built by the Phoenicians. Another sign of the Achaean presence in the northern world in a very distant past is a Mycenaean graffito found in the megalithic complex of Stonehenge in southern England. Other remains revealing a Mycenaean influence were found in the same area (" Wessex culture"), which date back to a period preceding the Mycenaean civilization in Greece. A trace of contact is found in the Odyssey, which mentions a market for bronze placed overseas in a foreign country named "Temese," ...

... in words, however, may bring to mind other moving pictures whose outcome is more useful. We are beginning to see the solar system as a machine that can produce useful products. The other great delight that I find in Velikovsky's work is his attributing human properties to the ancients. The best example of this was in his article on Stonehenge in your May, 1972, issue, where he writes: ". . . the ancient stonehengers had true perils on their minds when they dragged huge monoliths from afar, when they made holes and filled them, when they watched that the sun should not rise past the foreordained point on the horizon . . ." While much ...

... earthquakes would erupt. And then, as the earth was pitched from the bull's single horn and hurtled through the air, the sky would seem to fall. Finally, the earth would tumble into the ocean, releasing a cataclysm of water that would drown the world. 41 Throughout ancient Europe giant stones were erected to honour the sun. Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England, is one of the most famous of these sites. Like the structures in North and South America, Stonehenge may have been built as a magical device designed to prevent another earth crust displacement. By controlling the sun's movements, these massive stones might ensure the safety of the world. The horseshoe mouth of the ...

... Orkney, and Shetland Islands, all display this trending. Dames [1967, 1977] illustrates similar trendings in England, at Avebury and Silbury. At Giza, the pyramids (viewed from above) show both northeast-southwest and northwest-southeast directions, designed, perhaps, to depict ante- and post-diluvian pathways. This double direction is also found in Stonehenge, in the lunar alignments for its standstill moonrise and moonsets. It may also have been the model or precursor for our letter "x " [Stephanos, 1975]. The Summer solstice sunrise line extended backwards (southwest) marks the setting position of the star Sirius, as indicated by the "arrow-shaped" building O, Caballito ...

... confronted by the development of a field of quantavolutional therapy. It would work upon the quantavolutional human model through psychiatry with the aim of draining the naturally provoked and socially obsessed build-up of fear. Sublimatory measures, including personal and social pragmatics, might be devised. But of what use is quantavolution to religion? Astronomer Fred Hoyle, in From Stonehenge to Modern Cosmology, once answered the question of why modern man investigates the structure of the universe. "The answer is no different in principle from the motives of the builders of Stonehenge. The motive is religious." But the motive for religion is not a religion. What shall the religion be? To get down to cases ...

... its original position). In particular, the temple at Karnak gave shadows which indicate a tilt of 25.2 degrees - which exceeds the theoretical maximum - and Dodwell dated this temple to c.2345 BC. The dating is perhaps worth re-examining in detail, but it does not detract from the decidedly unusual result. Dodwell's work at Stonehenge supports a 350 BC date for its alignments (supporting the archaeologists) and not the 1900 BC date favoured by most astronomers: he also explains the observations of Eudoxus (lived c.350 BC) as being those of his day, rather than the 1900 BC observations deduced by astronomers. William Corliss comments: "One would think ...
