ALAN BUTLER: connecting Ancient Egypt to Owlde N'rth Yorksh'r.
this is truly fascinating, another great presentation from Megalithomania, and tells the story of the ancient measurement based on the swinging of a pendulum per second.
Butler actually contends that the 'henge' or basic bank'n'ditch was more important to the ancient megalithic star-gazers than the stone (dead) and/or wooden (living) monuments that grew up around/inside them in later phases of socio-architectural development. He shows how the megalithic yard might just be the answer to the layout of the Giza Pyramids referenced by Thornborough Henge in North Yorkshire i.e. was the basis for the Giza Plateau three-pyramid groundplan.
Free Planet likes Butler's light-hearted presentation style and his mathematical findings are just like, "No, F-off already," I mean seriously. Watch this, and learn, like an Egyptian, or a Washingtonian, or a megalithic Yorkshireman.
which brings Free Planet to the obvious question, if it has been satisfacorily proven that the race of elongated-skull or Conehead People aka Homo Capensis have been venerated i.e. had enormous barrows made for their internment at Stonehenge in Wiltshire, "Can we assume that the North Yorkshire coneheads laid out the Thornborough triple-henge and hence the Giza pyramidic layout?" Or to put it another way, "Have conehead skulls been found in North Yorkshire or further north into Scotland and the Orkneys where some fantastic standing stone circles are situated or were all such skulls transported to a specific veneration site, like the previously mentioned Stonehenge discovery?"
Another question is, "Was the later introduction of standing stones at these bank'n'ditch henges aimed at cementing the interred coneheads spiritually where they were, like a soul prison for these mathematically-minded giants?"
