Their are some interesting geometric alignments occurring between the latitude of some of Britain's Megalithic sites, and the angle they make with the cardinal sunrise points. If this isn't a coincidence then it means that , someone had a very good grasp of the Geometry/
Geography of the Earth about the time the major megalithic sites were constructed. Which means it was no coincidence that they were built at these specific locations.
In this lecture Robin Hunt explains some of the things he can do , which dogmatic archeologist just cannot delve into because it would mean their career would end. About 31 mins. in it gets to the meat, but the whole lecture is well worth a listen.

Nothing but sheer coincidence, I’m afraid.

And the pyramids 100 tonne blocks were transferred many multiple miles on wooden carts by malnourished slaves.

And the Roswell incident was just a weather balloon.

And the Reichstag fire was a stepping stone in a Communist plot to take over Germany.

And the polls are accurate.



So don’t any of you be getting any silly ideas about official stories.

can you please give an executive summary ? - cannot watch the vid

is the claim =

" the latitude of stone henge is identical to the azimuth of the sunrise on 21st june [ at stone henge ] "

Basically he's an electrician, who taught math's to Grad students, when he applied his knowledge by going to ancient sites and doing the measurements, he found that their latitude, coincided with their alignments , to the sun on the solstice. Then checking the alignments, of other monuments, he kept getting Pythagorean 3.4.5. triangles, at the end of the Vid , the three major Capitals of the UK form a perfect Pythagorean triangle with each other. He's getting the idea that these places were set by some persons with a high degree of knowledge of Pythagorean geometry five thousand years back. Personally it might have been to do with trade routes to do with Tin and Copper.
This is personal supposition ....Say If Stonehenge's known latitude was 53 degrees, then through sighting stones on the solstice, the Sun also read 53 degrees from due north, then if you were in North America on the same day , and the angle from true north read 53 degrees, you would have to be on the same latitude as Stonehenge, you knew what the day and time was by the solstice. but whatever angle was read from true north on that day in North America, if their level of math was as good as he suggests you would be able to work out your latitude, thus navigate a trip home wherever that was. .....theirs plenty of these stones set up all over the world they might well have been latitude markers.... Perhaps?

Cark Monk studied the mathmatical geometry of many of these Megalithic sites and he found the mathatics of them all equalled their exact GPS locations. Stonehenge was just one of them.

thankyou for that

but sadly - your answer demonstrates that mr hunt is either incompetant , or a liar

rhetorical questions time : [ i know the answers ]

1 - what is the latitude of stone henge ?

2 what is the azimuth [ compass bearing ] of sunrise on the 21st june

and the thread killer question :

why is the answer to Q1 & Q2 different ?????????????????

Like many, many, ancient structures around the world, stonehenge took decades, if not hundreds of years to get to it's 'final' form. They weren't drawn out on a blueprint, planned out with geological surveying and what not, and then erected in a few months, it was a trial and error type deal. Just look at all the failed pyramids scattered about Egypt, all the recycled stones up on Machu Pichu and all the abandoned structures under other ones in Gobekli Tepe.

When you approach Stonehenge with the full understanding of mathematics and the proper procedures to calculate that a certain section of Stonehenge does face a certain way, of course you are going to find the answer. But imagine living back 2500BC, all you had was time to look and observe, all you had to do was sit there on the solstice and place a stick between your field of vision and where the sun rises from the horizon. Done, just build from there, next all you need to do is make sure the stones are square and level, and a piece of string and a rock can do that.

I really hope that is not the scope of your imagination...........

It was rebuilt a few decades ago and stone positions guessed at.


The day they had the builders in at Stonehenge to recreate the most famous ancient monument in Britain as they thought it ought to look.

One of many sources

It was positioned in such a way to extract most money from gullible hippies.

All the recycled stones on Manchu Pichu? You do realise that is most likely crude restoration work. I.e the stone work on the uppermost tiers aka the most recent is far cruder than that below it. The original construction.

What abandoned structures under other ones in Gobekli Tepe? WTF are you talking about?

If the pyramids of Giza weren’t surveyed and planned, how do you suppose they align perfectly due north? How was the kings chamber incorporated with those massive granite slabs to support the weight from above? I suppose it was just all trial an error that explains it. Yeah right.

I marked the solstice on my roof. Dec 21.

Yes I know most of these structures are heavily restored.
Hence why I didn't go into much detail.
But, the point I was getting across is that ancient people recycled a lot of material from already existing structures. The pyramids are a prime example of a masterpiece, from literally hundreds of years of experience building pyramids prior to the completion of the first one.
And even that took about 50 years from start to finish.

That site includes previous standing stones that were buried and built over. Several layers of the standing "T stones" have been excavated. Notably, only 10% or so of the site has been excavated to date (IIRC.)

All it takes is one line. The Egyptians had methods for keeping corners (fairly) square.

"How to" is pretty speculative, but one idea is that the Grand Gallery actually served as a ramp to place those huge granite stones above the King's Chamber.

the language of math

the pyramids and the three small pyramids by the big ones all do global position math exactly to within a thousandth as do the other major ancient stone builds

Stonehenge is just one of many henges throughout the British Isles. The area around Stonehenge is an amazing landscape that includes a great deal of ancient Neolithic monuments. Indeed, Stonehenge itself is just one of many linked monuments across Salisbury Plain, including a Wood Henge. Is Stonehenge more, or less important than these other monuments, or other Neolithic monuments, like Thornborough Henges or Mayburgh Henge.

We know Stonehenge is aligned to the solstices, and other henges have other significant (apparent) purposes; for example, Thornborough Henges are said to mirror the three stars in Orion's Belt (of the constellation Orion, that is), so let's see what we make of that!

Having skimmed the video, I say it's an attempt to make a fantasy sound factual.

it's all guesswork and supposition on both 'sides' of the debating of possibilities, re. ancient stone structures such as stonehenge and the pyramids . NOBODY knows how or why they were built. guess away.

What are you saying here? That Gobekli Tepe is infact several Ancient sites as opposed to one? That the standing T stones aren't from the same time period? That they are built on top of one another?
As far as I am aware yes, only 10% of the site has been excavated, and the whole site was deliberately buried by whomever built it in the first place.



All it takes is one line. The Egyptians had methods for keeping corners (fairly) square.


Really? so the only planing and surveying the AE undertook was the laying out of one line...They still had to align that one line true north though, which takes planning and surveying does it not?



"How to" is pretty speculative, but one idea is that the Grand Gallery actually served as a ramp to place those huge granite stones above the King's Chamber.


Oh wait a minute, so the Grand Gallery wasn't a product of trial and error after all? There might have actually been a purpose to it, with some forsight and at least a bit of planning involved? Who would have thought it eh?
