STONEHENGE COMPLETE tells of the celebrated ancient monument in southern England seen by a million visitors a year. They come to wonder why Britains prehistoric people built the massive stone circle about 2300 BC. The many questions are answered in Stonehenge Complete. Five thousand years ago the sages of Britain and Ireland designed with great flare, ability and skill. In one location 160 hard rock columns were assembled in a complex design. Lunar eclipses and a Moon calendar were tallied, five day weeks, six weeks a month, twelve months a 354 days year. A Sun calendar of five day weeks, four weeks a month, sixteen months a year was counted on the bluestone and sarsen columns, 365 days a year. Fibonacci enunciated the progressive arithmetic series: - 1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, 5+8=13, 8+13=21, 13+21=34. Stonehenge embodies the series and the Golden Ratio of 1:1.62 favoured by architects of the Parthenon, Taj Mahal and Notre Dame. Number glyphs, arithmetic, geometry, ovals, circles, 3600 sexagesimal system, right-angled triangles, line measurements, symbolic values employed in the design of Stonehenge are explained. The knowledge made its way to Babylon, Greece, Egypt. Pythagoras and Euclid taught their students mathematical knowledge bequeathed by western lands. 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.
