Howard Crowhurst and the Kercado Dolmen | Ancient Mathematics | N J Wildberger

Howard Crowhurst gives us a first hand expert tour of a remarkable megalithic site: the Kercado Dolmen in the Carnac region in Brittany France. At least 6000 years old, this kind of structure is regarded by some as a passage grave, but Howard does not agree with this interpretation.

In any case, it raises a lot of interesting questions, not least being how primitive peoples could have constructed such a site. That top rock forming the roof of the chamber is not to be trifled with! In addition, the seeming coincidence of the distance from this site to the Manio Giant being exactly 10,000 megalithic yards, a fundamental measurement deduced by Prof Thom from numerous surveys, is intriguing.

For some reason, this idea of a dolmen seems to have been very wide spread. Not just in Europe, but into Asia as well --examples are even found in Korea. Why were ancient people so interested in this particular kind of construction?

Many thanks to Howard for presenting this fascinating material so well!
