A New Dimension to Ancient Measures
In this new specific study, using professionally designed computer programmes and statistical assessment not previously available, the dimensions of stone circles together with other megalithic remains were used to test for use of the HSMF. An unexpected consequence of this was that it revealed much about these megalithic structures and the abilities of the builders. When first found the HSMF unit of length was thought to be a new discovery. However it was soon realised that it was a very ancient unit of measurement, probably originating in Mesopotamia more than 6,000 years ago.
As the analyses of stone ring dimensions using the HSMF are examined, the authors? unavoidable conclusions are that the knowledge and expertise in prehistory was far in advance of what has been considered possible. Knowledge of the celestial values built into stone rings was not necessarily determined in Britain but had possibly been known for a long time. The fact that employment by the megalithic designers of the remains had used the HSMF in the architecture to unify geometry, important time values and astronomy, poses serious questions to our current commonly held views about prehistoric peoples and their capabilities. These issues and the implications are dealt with in the concluding chapter.
As the book provides much of the data that was used by the authors to substantiate their conclusions, it allows the reader to formulate their own opinions as to either verify or reject their proposals. More than that the book challenges readers, to themselves provide an alternative explanation for the evidence presented and subsequent claims of the authors re the validity of the HSMF. The book certainly asks the reader to reflect on the commonly held view of the megalithic people?s supposed limited knowledge and capabilities and poses some serious questions that challenge our view of history and the recent evolution of mankind.
Review: "As if I didn't already think Peter Harris' new book will be an absolute must-read, I was very pleasantly surprised to look at Peter's introductory PDF and observe that the way the data is organized lays bare the relationship between Anomalistic Month and Eclipse Year" - Robert 'Unhenged', Megalithic Portal Forum

Meini Hirion and the Sarns of Anglesey
The sceptical amongst us will point out that the geological formation and later the glaciers that covered Anglesey had resulted in all the lumps and bumps on the landscape becoming aligned roughly in a NNE to SSW direction. This glacial platform that we call Anglesey would have given ancient man an ideal canvas on which to place his markers in a regular pattern for whatever reason.
After Dr. Evans ( Wil Ifan o Fon ) had written his book which he had intended to self-publish, he approached a printer in Llangefni. This book became the very first job to be printed on a Monotype letter casting machine at W. O. Jones the printers. A subscription list was raised and copies were duly printed. However, the establishment strongly disagreed with his theories and it had a very bad reception. He had collected a few copies, but he was so upset by this very bad press that most were left with the printer and the job remained unpaid. This is an effort by the grandson of W. O. Jones to bring this work to the notice of the public for their scrutiny.
