Description
Describing a novel way of drawing the ground plan of Stonehenge with the peg and string method, revealing previously unknown relationships.

Summary
A new study of Stonehenge that reveals astronomical connection not previously reported.

Excerpt
Stonehenge is a supposedly Neolithic monument located on Salisbury plain in Southern England. A study of the monument ground-plan raises a number of questions that are not answered by existing science. Questions such as: - ‘How could primitive men subdivide a circle into 56 equal parts?’ The questions are not answered with the keys provided by science. We need a ‘dumb-key’ to resolve the problems and answer the questions. The dumb-key is found by asking ourselves what geometric drawing implements did the builders have? They must have marked the ground with some kind of plan or they would not have known where to dig the holes to place the stones. The only geometric implements they would have had access to would be the basic ones that men living in the wild might find in the environment. They would no doubt have a long straight pole or stick to use as a measure, and sharpened pegs to scratch lines in the turf, or to drive into the ground to mark places. They would have rope, or the ancient equivalent, made out of twisted fibres or knotted hide thongs. Pulled tight these would provide a straight line, which could be marked on the ground with chalk dust. (The monument stands on chalk bedrock) These are the only implements they would have; pegs and string and a stick. These are our dumb-keys; we must recreate the ground plan of the monument using just pegs, a stick, and string, or with pencil and paper. --------------Passage break------- Astro-Archaeology Although not immediately obvious the above drawing is actually an exponential scale mathematical model of the planetary orbits of the Solar System, as the following graphs purport to show. The ‘y’ axis of the following pair of graphs (8a) represents a section cut from an actual archaeological drawing of Stonehenge. The ‘X’ axis represents astronomical figures taken from Norton’s Star Atlas. The second pair (8b) is the same graph with the astronomical data raised to the powers shown in brackets. The graphs speak for themselves. It is evident from the following two graphs that the Stonehenge features could have been placed by reference to astronomical data. Further study revealed the information detailed in the next section entitled ‘Summary of Astronomy.’
