Re: Definition of henge

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-43814448 You came up with the answer to one question . And evaded the others . The single answer only highlighted the problem of omission , which seems to be catching . As Circumspice points out , why did you omit "Conventionally, a henge comprise...

Re: Definition of henge

From today's BBC story - "What is a henge? "A henge is a prehistoric monument consisting of a circle of stone or wooden uprights, with Stonehenge in Wiltshire one of the best-known examples." Works for me. :D Got a link for that ? Why ignore the multiple examples of reputable definitions that diffe...

Re: Solar alignments in ancient Egypt

Your fantasy world continues to grow . Like all your diversions ,it doesn't matter , but what makes you think I don't know who Peter Cook was ? " faux naivity" ,is that a fake manger scene ? Don't answer , it's rhetorical . I've probably forgotten more of the P&D and Derek &Clive sketches than you h...

Re: Solar alignments in ancient Egypt

Yes , dishonesty and lack of evidence are common bedfellows . Evidence , in the form of quotes proves you have been found guilty of both . This contrasts with your ability to do the same . But abuse does create a diversion from the central issue . The search facility here is a good one ,and that evi...

Another North American henge.
The Miami "circle " is not a henge .
Not that it matters , but the even the description in the text and vid didn't describe it as henge .

Re: Solar alignments in ancient Egypt

Made up =fantasy with nothing to support it . "But to one who considers he cannot make errors" is an example , where did I say that ? Read what is said e.g. "Where did I say something wrong about ...." , "I'm more than happy to be informed of errors" You have only highlighted your own dishonesty , p...

"Ley lines " were associated with Alfred Watkins , and later John Michell .Paul Deveraux etc. Thom would have been offended by any suggestion of an association with such nonsense .

Re: Solar alignments in ancient Egypt

Not only did you fail to support your comment , you had to include another of your made up phrases .
My comment was " I'm more than happy to be informed of errors" . Feel free .

Re: Solar alignments in ancient Egypt

Hi shawomet - Its not my definition of henge - it is the one commonly used here and elsewhere.
