A Guided Tour for the Discerning Visitor

The Book

' HOW   TO   READ   STONEHENGE'   provides   a   clearly   written   visual   guide   showing   how   the   sky-watching   architects designed      Stonehenge.   Their   plans   positioned   pairs   of   stones   to   provide   stunning,   multiple-slit   viewing   perspectives     indicating the solar migration movements.

Stonehenge in Context

Stonehenge   is   arguably   the   most   powerful   symbol   of   Britain’s   ancient   past.   However,   after   four   centuries   of investigation    by    various    authorities,    the    criterion    used    by    the    architects    in    choosing    the    Stonehenge location, like its true age and purpose, remains veiled in mystery.
The   area   of   southern   England   known   as   Wessex   contains   the   greatest   concentration   of   Neolithic   and   Bronze Age   monuments   in   the   UK,   and   Stonehenge   is   believed   to   be   part   of   an   extensive   network   of   sacred   sites   and burial mounds. The   monument's   stones,   divide   not   only   the   Neolithic   but   also   today's   vitally   important   agricultural   year.   After reading this book, you will never look at the monument in the same way again.

A Functioning Device

Extensive   measurements   in   and   around   the   stones   of   Stonehenge   prove,   that   the   monument,   is   still   capable   of indicating   the   altitude   of   the   sun   at   noon   each   day,   the   moon’s   cycle,   and   a   sunrise   and   sunset   roughly   every 23 to 26 days, defining the vitally important ancient and today’s farmers’ agricultural calendar. ‘How   to   Read   Stonehenge’   visually   demonstrates   exactly   how   its   purpose   is   achieved,   using   photographs   taken at   sunrise   and   sunset   on   specific   dates   at   Stonehenge   and   at   other   ancient   pre-historic   earthwork   sites   in   the Stonehenge landscape and elsewhere.
