This is the intense tale of ways the search to attempt to crack the secret of the Megalithic backyard - an old unit of linear size - resulted in the invention of compelling proof pointing to the lifestyles of an unknown, hugely complex tradition which used to be the precursor to the earliest recognized civilizations corresponding to the Sumerians and the Egyptians.
There should have been a Civilization One. The authors exhibit how this very specific unit of eighty two. 966656cm, confirmed to were utilized in the development of hundreds of thousands of megalithic buildings in Britain and France, was once derived from watching the speed of the spin of the Earth - in response to a kind of geometry that had 366 levels to check the 366 rotations of the Earth in a yr. They show how this is often a part of an built-in approach, way more complicated than whatever used at the present time, which varieties the root of either the Imperial and the Metric systems.
the traditional scientists understood the size, motions and relationships of the Earth, Moon and sunlight - they measured the sunlight procedure or even understood how the rate of sunshine was once built-in into the activities of our planet.
The implications of those revelations pass some distance past the fascination of getting to know
