Book Description

This is the extraordinary story of how a quest to try to crack the mystery of the €˜Megalithic Yard - an ancient unit of linear measurement - led to the discovery of compelling evidence pointing to the existence of an unknown, highly advanced culture which was the precursor to the earliest known civilizations. There must have been a Civilization One.

Hard facts that change history for ever:

€ The builders of the Stone Age monuments of the British Isles used a unit of length that was defined to one ten-thousandth of a millimetre.

€ That unit is fundamental to the Sun, Moon and Earth

€ There are 366 degrees to an Earth circle not 360

The pound and the pint are derived from this prehistoric unit of length

€ The metre, kilo and litre were in use over 4, 000 years before the French €˜invented them

€ The hour, minute and second were developed more than two millennia before Christ-from the movements of the Moon.

€ The further back in time all measurements are studied, the more they merge into one great system.

Contents: The great wall of history € The turning Earth € The harmony of the spheres € Sumerian degrees € The rebirth of the metric system € The Jefferson Report € Grains of ancient truth € The weight of the world € The missing link € Widening the search € Music and light € Sun, Moon and megalithic measure € A new paradigm of prehistory € Appendices : Earth days and proving the megalithic yard; The formula for finding the volume of a sphere; More about megalithic music; Music and light; The phaistos disc and the megalithic year; The Amazing barley seed ; The megalithic principle and freemasonry € Index
