42. Society News: 1999 SIS AGM & SIS Study Group Meeting 19th June 1999 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the subject of Mayan calendars and large discrepancies in world wide datings. He clearly gave his audience much to think about and we hope to be able to properly assess his work with a detailed article in the future. Emmett Sweeney then entertained us with what appeared initially to be an off the cuff presentation of his thoughts about a connection between Stonehenge and King Arthur. Rapidly warming to his subject Emmett began with the legend of Merlin creating Stonehenge by the magical transportation of stones and before long we were plunged into an exuberant consideration of Celtic myth and chronology and their interconnections with world myths. Emmett concluded that Stonehenge was not built by an unknown Stone Age people but that the megalithic ...
43. An Ancient Celtic Water Cult: Its Significance in British Prehistory [Journals] [Kronos]
... It is clear that the early Celtic peoples regarded all such places as entrances to the otherworld, and the literatures of the Celtic world support this supposition. One of the earliest of these shaft-wells dates to before the period with which we are concerned, namely, to the Bronze Age, and is located in Wiltshire, about 2 miles from Stonehenge. It consists of a shaft, cut through the chalk to a depth of some 110 ft., terminating in a well, containing the remains of wooden buckets and ropes, and having in it pieces of broken Bronze Age pottery . . . Its proximity to Stonehenge and its great depth suggest that it was of a ritual nature ...

45. Chapter IX: Other Similar Shrines Elsewhere [Books]
... zodiac, borrowed by the Hindoos soon after the Christian era, and called by them the Naksha-tras, the Tai-sui is' a deification of the sixty-year cycle." [4 ] We find, then, that the most important temple in China is oriented to the winter solstice. To mention another instance. It has long been known that Stonehenge is oriented to the rising of the sun at the summer solstice. Its amplitude instead of being 26 is 40 N. of E.; with a latitude of 51 , the 26 azimuth of Thebes is represented by an amplitude of 40 at Stonehenge. The structure consists of a double circle of stones, with a sort of naos ...
46. The Planetary Order Revealed in The Book of the Secrets of Enoch [Journals] [Horus]
... the maximum rising or setting points of the planets much more easily discernible to anyone making a regular study and observation of them. Horizon reference That ancient astronomers made use of the horizon as a natural and convenient reference scale for measuring and correlating movements of the heavenly bodies is a well-attested fact. In numerous articles in HORUS and KRONOS dealing with Stonehenge as a luni-solar calendar, 1 have amply demonstrated that the horizon-marking method was the principal system used in setting up the sunmoon calendar device that the site represented. By noting the maximum setting (or rising) points of the planets along that scale, and thereby the relative degree to which each, in its separate celestial journey, " ...
47. The Mapmakers from the ice age [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... of a stereographic projection centered on the point X (intersection of the meridian of Alexandria and of the tropic of Cancer). From this point, I have traced the circumferences the radiuses of which equal 36, 72 (2x36), 108 (3x36) and 144 (4x36) degrees. We notice that: The megalithic sites of Stonehenge (Great Britain) and of Carnac (France) are situated on the first circle. The ancient Chinese observatory of Gaocheng (area of Luoyang) and the site of Angkor Vat (Cambodia) are situated on the second circle. The remarkable solar observatory of Chaco Canyon (USA, New-Mexico), the Maya cities of Uxmal ( ...
48. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... least invented his own distortions of Velikovsky's theories, rather than peddling the familiar ones, and he has updated his sources, displaying a tenuous acquaintance with the contents of Pensee - though only sufficient to garble Velikovsky's views even further. In the midst of the general disparagement there appear to be two specific criticisms of Velikovsky, the first related to Stonehenge and the second to the Venus tablets of Ammizaduga. On Stonehenge the author states': "Velikovsky claims the monument was erected later than -687": in fact Velikovsky has only suggested that the final re-arrangement (no one disputes that it was re-arranged several times) may have taken place after -687. On the Venus tablets Mr Brown's ...
49. Cosmic Catastrophes and the Origin of Megalithic Cultures [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Dating the megalith culture is extremely difficult because there is no written history of those times. There are not even sketchy chronological reports; at most there are myths and legends which cannot be easily attributed to those times and constructions. As far as I can see, there is only one real pointer: incisions of daggers in the sandstones of Stonehenge, which are frequently described as Mycenaean. However this does not really provide an answer since Stonehenge is subdivided into between three and four construction periods which are located far from each other in time. Moreover, there are grave doubts whether the daggers are indeed Mycenaean'; the only consensus that exists says that the Wessex Culture (Stonehenge ...
