Earthwork Features in the Stonehenge Landscape After Sunrise and Before Sunset

‘The   combined   orientation   of   these   ancient   pre-history   linear   and   henge   earthwork   features   in   the   Stonehenge   landscape, from   different   eras,   and   my   discovery   of   the   coincidental   orientation   of   Christian   stone   churches   constructed   within   henge earthwork    features        elsewhere,    are    roughly    indicating    dates    in    the    vitally    important    Neolithic    year,    as    well    as    today’s agricultural calendar.’ ‘These   agricultural   calendar   dates   mark   the   sun’s   annual   movements   back   and   forth   along   the   near   viewing   horizon,   from   the north-east   summer   solstice   extreme   point,   to   the   south-west   winter   solstice   extreme   point.   This   is   defined   today   by   the Stonehenge   monument’s   axis   (aligned   to   the   winter   solstice   sunset   and   summer   solstice   sunrise)   and   the   nearby   Durrington Walls Processional Avenue (aligned to the winter solstice sunrise and summer solstice sunset).’ ‘How   to   Read   Stonehenge   demonstrates   (to   reader   with   little   or   no   understanding   of   the   movements   of   the   sun   and   moon) how   these   linear   ancient   pre-history   earthwork   constructions   in   the   Stonehenge   landscape   were   not   the   only   constructions orientated   to   these   alignments,   for   the   naves   of   the   later   Christian   churches   seen   standing   today   inside   adopted   ancient   pre- history   earthwork   sites   do   the   same,   as   created   by   the   secretive   and   mysterious   stone-carving   operative   freemasons.   Were these   architect   Master   Masons   using   knowledge   not   in   the   public   domain   but   passed   down   through   the   generations   –   or   is this just a series of fortuitous coincidences?’ ‘In   The   tour   in   Part   Three   of   How   to   Read   Stonehenge   I   demonstrate   how   these   solar-lunar   alignments   were   cleverly indicated through the doorways of the Stonehenge phase-three monument.’
