SOLVING STONEHENGE: The New Key to an Ancient Enigma

above: digital terrain model of the site. If you are a Stonehenge fan, then you are probably tired of the old and derivative graphics; visit

above: perfect alien landing site prepared in 2 hours. No tapes, no measurements used….no problem, note the correspondence with the stone positions – remarkable. Like the major sarsens at Stonehenge it’s accurate to around 5cm, how was it done? Well, with simple geometry, pegs and ropes – just as it was 4,500 years ago. But seriously what we have above is an exact representation of the stone positions (i.e. the centre faces of each stone), and at true scale. Why the ‘centre faces’ of each stone? it’s all explained in the book.

 ‘Solving Sonehenge’ explains how computer ‘reverse-engineering’ was used to re-discover the prehistoric survey methods, which were then replicated on the ground.
