Ancient Mysteries Solved or Stonehenge Decoded by Gerald S. Hawkins


The fascination with the mysteries of the past has built careers and consumed lives; few puzzles have fired the imagination more than the great monoliths of Stonehenge. Around the questions of Stonehenge, have legends of sacrifice and pagan ritual developed, yet for hundreds of years few answers were found. Finally in 1963, using pen and paper and a state of the art (for the time) IBM computer, astronomer Gerald S. Hawkins solved what had been unsolvable. Using the night sky as the Druids would have seen it and the positions of the Sun and the Moon, Hawkins was able to demonstrate the sophistication of the calculations of the ancients and discover the truth of Stonehenge.
