21. Sir Norman Lockyer (1836-1920) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , wrote The Dawn of Astronomy, in 1894. He had noted that in English churches the east window generally faced in the direction of sunrise on the feast days of patron saints (such as Martin, Peter etc.) Churches dedicated to John the Baptist were for instance aligned to the NE and Lockyer had previously noted the axis at Stonehenge pointed in the same direction. NE is roughly the sunrise on midsummer day, more pertinently the sunrise in June as a generality. Lockyer was convinced the stars were used to fix calendar dates but the majority of scholars did not believe him. Indeed, Egyptologists have consistently ignored the stellar features in Egyptian religion and they treated Lockyer as ...
22. Stonehenge: Neolithic Man and the Cosmos, by John North [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: C&C Review 2004:3 (Incorporating C&C Workshop 2004:4 ) Home | Issue Home Stonehenge: Neolithic Man and the Cosmos, by John North Harper Collins, 1999. Reviewed by Philip Clapham This book has received very little attention in the way of reviews, and does not seem to have been taken too seriously. It is a thick book and the subject is archaeoastronomy. This is not currently fashionable amongst archaeologists and as John North claims that some chalk hill figures were constructed as early as the third millennium BC it does not sit very well with historical wisdom. However, Patrick Moore gave the book a glowing review on the jacket ...
23. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... predict earthquakes and volcanic activity. John D. Weir, Edinburgh Merlin's Round Table'Emmett J. Sweeney, in his Merlin and the Round Table' (C &CR 1999:1 , p. 17), is the latest among many to take it for granted that Diodoros of Sicily (II, 47) was referring to Stonehenge. Diodoros wrote in the first century before this era, and indicated that his account of the Hyperboreans was derived from Hekataios and certain others'. (Hekataios lived around -500; his books have not survived.) However Sweeney goes too far in taking this passage of Diodoros to have been quoted' from Hekataios: the Greeks did ...

25. "Stonehenge Viewpoint?" Biased View (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 3 (Summer 1986) Home | Issue Contents Forum "Stonehenge Viewpoint?" Biased View Dwardu Cardona Reports: In May of 1984, KRONOS received a manuscript from Bob Forrest titled "Reply to Dwardu Cardona's Piece in KRONOS IX:2 ". Partly because of its length (10 pages of single-spaced type, approximately 8400 words), but mostly because of its rambling contents, KRONOS did not see fit to publish it. As Senior Editor of KRONOS, I wrote to Forrest on May 14 of the same year to let him know of our decision. Part of my letter read: "[ Your manuscript consists of] ...
26. Stonehenge Lunar-Solar Calendar [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 3 (Summer 1986) Home | Issue Contents The amazing, astonishingly accurate Stonehenge Lunar-Solar Calendar Now you not only can learn the purpose of the mysterious ancient stone structure in southwestern England, but you will be able to demonstrate to your own satisfaction that the monument was an operational calendar that corrolated lunar months with solar years over the 19-year period of the Metonic cycle. Printed on green 10" by 14 ½" parchtext paper, this stylized schematic is perfect for framing as an ideal conversation piece, and has accompanying tet which explains the evolution and operation of the calendar in detail. The Stonehenge Calendar $3 .75 N. ...
27. The ISCBM Newark Earthworks Conference [Journals] [Horus]
... no claim to the achievement, these moundworks and artifacts found within them have characteristics suggesting that there may be far more to the story. The earthworks at Newark bear remarkable resemblance to those found in Northern Europe. The Great Circle Mound forming part of the Octagon Mound complex is very similar to the shape and orientation of the earthworks which surrounded Stonehenge. Research in the field of archaeoastronomy [cf. R. Hively & R. Horn, "Geometry and Astronomy in Prehistoric Ohio," Archaeoastronomy, no.4 , (JHA, xiii, 1982)] has established that the orientation of the axis of the Great Circle Mound aligns with the northernmost rising point of the Moon ...
28. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... presses. This one tells the life history of young Tutankhamun, using new forensic evidence to indicate that he was murdered at the instigation of one of his successors. Act of God: Moses, Tutankhamen and the Myth of Atlantis by Graham Phillips, Sidgwick and Jackson, 1998, £16.99 Unfortunately this author hasn't managed to link Stonehenge with Egypt or he would have hit the jackpot. Tutankhamun is supposed to have lived at the time of the Exodus, and therefore Moses, and Atlantis is that old chestnut, the explosion of Thera. The Gold of Exodus: The discovery of the most sacred place on Earth by Howard Blum, 1998, £17.99 ...
29. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Workshop 1990:1 , pp. 32-33). However, members of SIS will be aware that Dr Meaden also has a great interest in archaeology (see Eric Crew's discussion of Meaden's book The Goddess of the Stones, C & C Workshop 1991:2 , pp. 13-16). Further research has led to another book, The Stonehenge Solution, and it was details of this to which we were treated at the meeting. For those still interested in crop circles Dr Meaden offered the promise of further research in future after the present wave of hoaxing has died down and the subject can again be treated in a serious manner. Living in Wiltshire had put Meaden into an ...
30. "In Search of Ancient Astronomies": A Review [Journals] [Kronos]
... such sites are diverse in both location and time, and cannot be grouped together in order to accommodate the deluded fantasies of such as Aveni. No wonder archaeologists treat archaeoastronomy with such contempt. The editor of In Search of Ancient Astronomies, Krupp, contributes four chapters. One is a useful section on basic practical astronomy, two are on Stonehenge and Egyptian astronomy, respectively, and the last on so-called astronomical fantasies. Krupp's introduction to Stonehenge bears an unacknowledged debt to more erudite sources, notably Atkinson. Hoyle, Hawkins, Newham, and Thom are then presented as the monument's astronomical heroes. Hawkins' work, however, has been dismissed on both astronomical and archaeological grounds while ...
