"Lapse of Memory" - timelapse film on Vimeo


"Lapse of Memory" is a short film I've recently completed which aims to give a new visual perspective on some of the prehistoric sites of Northern Britain. The film combines the photographic techniques of high dynamic range imaging and time-lapse in a panoramic format, and is made up of over 70,000 individual photographs.

Shot over the summer of 2008 as part of an MSc in Creative Technology, the film covers a number of sites in North Yorkshire, Cumbria & Scotland.

Please contact me at TParting@hotmail.com for any comments about the piece.

Stone Circle Search Engine-Google


Using the new Google Co-op feature I've created this search engine which may come in useful.

Enter your search term & it will Google it across the whole web, but giving preference to the megalithic websites I've put in - TMA, Megalithic, Megalithomania, Stone Pages & others (inc. mine).

Even better you can suggest more sites to include, definitely including your own if you have one-the more the better!

Entoptic Phenomena


For a comprehensive review of entoptic imagery in rock art.
Not just substance induced patterns, as is often bandied about, but also naturally occuring phosphenes.

It's an old review ('95), based on even older material (mostly 70s). But it's a subject that may attract interest due to the current trends in Cognitive Archaeology.

Cognitive Archaeology


"Cognitive archaeology is the branch of archaeology that investigates the development of human cognition. It therefore deals with a great variety of evidence, ranging from early rock art to other forms of palaeoart, from animal cognition to palaeoanthropology to psychology and ontogenic cognitive development, and it also needs to concern itself with evidence of early human technology and the ability of domesticating natural systems of energy."

'An antiquary', observed the satirical writer Samuel Butler in the 1660s, 'is an old frippery-Philosopher, that has so strange a natural Affection to worm-eaten speculation, that it is apparent he has a Worm in his Skull. He values one old Invention, that is lost and never to be recovered, before all the new ones in the World, tho' never so useful.'

For the 'oldies' out there. Remember The Ley Hunter, the 1st earth mysteries magazine. Well Jimmy Goddard has scanned in the early editions of the magazines from 1969 to 1976. The quality of the scannings a bit 'iffy', but these long out of print articles might contain a wealth of information.
