Sun, Moon & Stonehenge: High Culture in Ancient Britain
How did the builders of Stonehenge predict eclipses to within a minute of accuracy? Why did they bring stones all the way from West Wales? Why does the Bible contain a story which is the solution to marriage of the Sun and Moon, a geometrical solution to a calendric and astronomical paradox? Why did the old testament prophet Enoch take observations of the Sun from the latitude of Stonehenge? Why did Jesus die at 33? Beautifully illustrated and concise with original artwork and extensive research and appendices, nothing like this book has appeared for a very long time.
