The End is Near: Guest Post by Dan Johnston

by AHanna on April 15, 2014

Last night I set the alarm for 2 AM and struggled from bed to go outside in the brisk “spring” air (it was 20 degrees F or -6.7 degrees C) to view one of my favorite free sky extravaganzas — a total lunar eclipse or blood moon. Fortunately, the sky was clear and the orange/copper-colored […]


A Question of Time

by Dennis on April 12, 2014

A few days ago, I came across this article in the Independent, which fascinated me on account of the brusque way it dismissed the phenomenon of the Angels of Mons, a subject that’s engrossed me for years. “And what of the Angels of Mons? It has sometimes been suggested that they were a hallucination, experienced […]

Coming Events Cast Their Shadow Before: the Neolithic Plaque and the “Marcher Lord”.

February 25, 2014

The Neolithic chalk plaque, which was discovered at the Kings Barrows ridge, currently hangs in the new Visitors Centre at Stonehenge. I must admit I’ve not been along to see this plaque in its new home myself, so I cannot say how people react upon seeing it, but I would imagine that most stop for […]

Red Light, Green Light: A Guest Post by Dan Johnston

February 24, 2014

One of the common misconceptions about human history is that the veil of mystery obscuring ancient cultures and history is lifted once writing appears and we learn how to read ancient texts from around the world.

February 19, 2014

(Click to enlarge) We started this series of Stonehenge images fifty days ago with a couple of examples of “Stonehenge as it Might Have Been.” As it turns out, I’ve run out of things to present, so I’m going to finish off the series with one last “Might Have Been” image. This one shows the […]
