Perhaps there is an answer. Google " The Code of Carl P. Munck" and see if this will help you. He was the first to give this work a name : archaeocryptography. I too believe there is a connection between these ancient sites. Munck uses what he calls Gematrian numbers to connect these places. Tell me if you thing all this is coincidence.

The ancient landmarks, for a lack of a better word, are lined up in a great circle, and the lines cross at a point in Alaska.
What is your logic for cherry picking the "ancient landmarks" just so that it fits your circle, if I may ask?
Just curious. I really see nothing strange with drawing a circle around the warmer regions of the earth (ie near the equator) where many of the earliest civilizations started.

... ALL within .1 of a degree latitude? How is that cherry picking? They're there, they line up, something is up.
The Earth is not strongly disturbed by the impact and loses negligible mass.
The impact does not make a noticeable change in the Earth's rotation period or the tilt of its axis.
The impact does not shift the Earth's orbit noticeably.

Great first thread OP! please keep up the good work. Although there may be some "holes" in this theory, I personally find it rather remarkable that there are so many sites within this circle. An addendum to your idea is: Did you notice how close your center point in Alaska is to the Magnetic Pole? I wonder if the magnetic north pole was at one time centered on this area and perhaps had something to do with this area being center point??
Hey BM you added your observation just before mine.
great twisted minds must think alike!

The sites listed above are shown clockwise from Giza on the equal azimuthal projection below. The projection is centered on the axis point in southeastern Alaska. Distances to any location from the center of an equal azimuthal projection are equally scaled. Since all of the sites on the great circle alignment are equally distant from the axis point at one quarter of the circumference of the earth, the alignment forms a perfect circle halfway between the center and the outer edge of the projection.
Angkor Preah Vihear is 4754 miles from Giza. This is 19.1% of the great circle circumference, or 68.754° (19.1% times π equals 60.00% and 68.754° times π equals 216.00°). The two great circle segments from the axis point to Giza and to Angkor Vihear are each 90°, or 180° combined. 180°/68.754° = 2.618. The ratio between both sides of this terrestrial triangle and the baselength of the triangle is 2.618 to one.
