Stonehenge Sacred Symbolism
Stonehenge Sacred Symbolism
by Neil L Thomas
reveals the Bible's Old Testament tale of the
disappearance of Sodom and Gomorrah actually occurred about 2250 BC. Founded
upon scientific atmospheric data, glacier ice cores and petroleum industry
records, see why India, China, the Americas, Britain, Malta, Egypt, Palestine,
Jordan, Sumeria all suffered starvation, cold and drought conditions about the
same time. Empires collapsed and humanity reverted to a basic frugal existence.
The sea-linked peoples of the north-west: Ireland, Britain and western Europe
have much in common. Pre-historic deities, legends and myths, Sun and Moon
calendars, feet fathoms and furlongs, all are revealed in

Stonehenge Sun Calendar
The pre-historic peoples of Ireland, Britain, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland,
France and Germany exhibit similar elements of ancient beliefs and a Sun
calendar: sixteen months, four weeks a month, five days a week, 365 days a year.
Days could have been named for the ancient deities Sun, Moon, Woden, Thor and
We continue to mark eight annual events in the
ancient Sun calendar:
Two solstices = Summer & Winter
Two equinoxes = Spring & Autumn
Llew = Harvest
Stonehenge Moon Calendar
The Stonehenge Moon calendar featured two rings of pits dug into the subsoil.
Back-filled with white chalk lumps, thirty Z Holes formed the outer ring,
twenty-nine Y Holes formed an inner ring.
A Moon month is 29½ days, 59 days in two months. From the centre, imaginary
lines drawn between the trilithons form six segments equal to six weeks of five
days, perhaps given the same day names as the Sun calendar. Alternate months had
only four days in the fourth week. Six counts around fifty-nine Y and Z Holes
equalled 354 days, a twelve-month Moon year.
Literacy & Numeracy
Ireland's ancient monuments at Knowth
c.3500 BC show the earliest
comprehensive writing and arithmetic abilities in mankind's history, thirty-six
or so symbols employed in petroglyphs demonstrated the Sun and Moon calendars.
Counts of thirty-three had symbolic meaning. The world's four major religions
continue to employ thirty-three to imply or infer a sacred state or an ultimate
Right-angled triangles, Pi or ? = 22/7, odd numbers and their symbolism were
employed in the north-west during the fourth millennium BC. The first millennium
BC Greek philosophers Pythagoras, Archimedes and Euclid probably inherited their
mathematical knowledge from the Stonehenge people of ancient Britain.
England's largest ancient monument at Avebury was built about 2500 BC. Three
times thirty-three massive stones enclosed a fertility shrine, a justice court,
a good health symbol. Four entrances crossed the encircling ditch and
embankment. These features are mirrored in the Icelandic Creation Of The World
myth told in written form about 1200 AD.
The Long Man of Wilmington
Linear measures, the Celtic foot, the short yard and faethm [fathom] the furlang
[furlong] were known throughout history and in Stonehenge times. The prehistoric
Long Man of Wilmington figure on a hillside in Sussex, England is thirty-three
faethms equal to one furlang from head to toe. The first cricket game pitch was
ten faethms long. Baseball and cricket have this common origin on the south
coast of England.

Author Neil L Thomas, a chartered engineer in the Australian oil and gas
industry, made field trips to Ireland, Wales, England, Scotland, the
Netherlands, Denmark, France, the Middle East, Egypt, India, China, Canada and
the USA. Years of research led to an understanding how the myths and folklore of
north-west European peoples complement prehistoric monuments, the evidence fits
together like a jigsaw.
