Prof Thom Updates from Michael Wilson

Archaeologist Michael Wilson has done excellent work confirming and refining the theories of Professor Thom, as published in Antiquity magazine - see

Working in southern Ireland, Wilson gives details of lunar and solar alignments, in relation to the anatomy of the horizon, with additional details of how stone circles could be used to predict eclipses, plus how burial monuments are positioned in the landscape.

He will eventually publish a book, but in the meantime, the Antiquity article is essential reading for anyone interested in henges and barrows.
