This "advance" in thinking resulted in stone monuments like Stonehenge in Britain and sites in Western Europe
This "advance" in thinking resulted in stone monuments like Stonehenge in Britain and sites in Western Europe. In tracing the growth of religious thinking and its manifestations in Neolithic Europe, North sees consistency without unity. What he does stress is the advanced thinking that must have been taking place during passing years. Wood and stone circles were positioned with uncanny accuracy to perform their tasks.

Stonehenge has fascinated mankind for centuries, enveloping generation after generation in its haunting mystery. There have been many attempts to explain the purpose of Stonehenge. Using archaelogical detail and a knowledge of the heavens as they were many millennia ago, North establishes the function of the stones themselves and what we can know of the religion that caused them to be erected.

The modern version of Stonehenge is a total archaeological fabrication based on what archaeologists thought how Stonehenge looked
Both his wife, Maria, and his closest friend, John Fisher, had died, and his two eldest sons had left home. The modern version of Stonehenge is a total archaeological fabrication based on what archaeologists thought how Stonehenge looked. It is now as far removed from its true archaic form as it could be, but then again, archaeologists follow a set orthodoxy set in e. tone, and are utterly unchangeable even when evidence states they need to alter their view.

Drawing on more than 15 years of research, John North has at last succeeded where others have failed. He comprehensively examines Stonehenge from all available angles -- archeological, astronomical, and spiritual -- and considers relevant research from other prehistoric remains in Britain and Northern Europe. He shows, for the first time, that the stones were not so much sighting devices as maps of the heavens and that the design of the monument evolved over thousands of years rather than conforming to a single original blueprint. Such observations form the basis of deductions about prehistoric life and religion that will profoundly affect our understanding of who we are and where we came from.
