Stonehenge Sacred Symbolism reveals the Bible's Old Testament tale of the disappearance of Sodom and Gomorrah actually occurred about 2250 BC. Founded upon scientific atmospheric data, glacier ice cores and petroleum industry records, see why India, China, the Americas, Britain, Malta, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Sumeria all suffered starvation, cold and drought conditions about the same time. Empires collapsed and humanity reverted to a basic frugal existence. The sea-linked peoples of the north-west: Ireland, Britain and western Europe have much in common. Pre-historic deities, legends and myths, Sun and Moon calendars, feet fathoms and furlongs, all are revealed in Stonehenge Sacred Symbolism. OTHERS SAY: - "In 1977 Dr Thomas like many Australians with Celtic surnames before him, went searching for his ancestors, only to stumble across an entirely pre-Celtic civilisation. His casual interest rapidly deepened, after twelve years of intensive scholarship he presented a brilliant PhD thesis - perhaps even definitive - in its interpretation of Britain and Ireland's Neolithic culture. From the vantage point of his training in engineering and mathematics, Dr Thomas obtained a fresh perspective of the design and function of the megalithic circles in Britain and Western Europe. Dr Thomas believes these ancient Britons worshipped the Sun and Moon, and probably gods corresponding to the three primary gods of the Norse pantheon - Odin Thor and Freyr. Although Stonehenge is the best-known of Britain's Neolithic relics, a much larger stone circle lies to the north-west, surrounding the village of Avebury. From its grand design, and its relationship to other megalithic sites in the region, Dr Thomas believes Avebury was the most significant of all the Neolithic temples. Avebury's massive ring of stones, some weighing up to 45 tonnes, originally numbered 99 - thrice the sacred number of 33. If Dr Thomas is right, Avebury was ancient Britain's spiritual capital, the Neolithic equivalent of Jerusalem" Graeme O'Neill, past Science Correspondent of 'The Age' broadsheet newspaper, Melbourne. About the Author: Dr Neil L Thomas, a chartered engineer in the Australian oil and gas industry, made field trips to Ireland, Wales, England, Scotland, the Netherlands, Denmark, France, the Middle East, Egypt, India, China, Canada and the USA. Years of research led to an understanding how the myths and folklore of north-west European peoples complement prehistoric monuments, the evidence fits together like a jigsaw.
