Stonehenge: The Secret of the Solstice

Stonehenge: The Secret of the Solstice - Terence Meaden

Paperback, 176 pages, Souvenir Press, 1997

Looking at known facts of archaeology, science and ancient religion, the author explains these mysteries in terms of the universally-adored, world-renewal fertility/creation myth called the Sacred Marriage or The Marriage of the Gods; for this inspired the device by which the cosmic fertilisation of a female deity on Earth was achieved by visible revelation, the midsummer mating of the rising sun (via its radiant light) with a female standing stone (mis-named the Altar Stone at Stonehenge) inside a womb-like setting of stones.

The intention appears to have been to ensure the security and fertility of the people's world by means of a dramatic midsummer spectacle which everyone could witness and understand. The author proposes that Stonehenge is a womb-shaped temple much like the hundreds of thousands of womb-shaped Hindu temples known to as the garbha grha. At Stonehenge and other ancient British temples the effect was completed by the phallic shadow cast by an additional stone, in this case the Heel Stone.

The Secrets of the Avebury Stones

The Secrets of the Avebury Stones: Britains Greatest Megalithic Temple
Terence Meaden

Paperback - 224 pages
Souvenir Press 1999 ISBN: 0285635018

Highly recommended book on the Avebury stones. Has photos of almost every stone with detailed notes, making this the most comprehensive book on Avebury ever published

As with his previous books the subject of sexual symbolism is an important theme. Male and female stones, earth mother and sky father, specially chosen stones with triangular and cleft shapes. He takes a theory touched upon by other authors and explores it in depth.

Just £6.99+p&p (RRP £12.99 - a saving of over 60%)

The 'secret' is that there are dozens of faces in the stones, created by taking advantage of natural irregularities in stone and in some cases augmented by subtle carving. Most represent left facing human profiles, although Meaden also provides photographs of a convincing sheep's head inside West Kennet Long Barrow, and several more stones that show parallels with the Yoni symbolism of the Hindu/Tantric religion, namely having deep slits on display.
