We wait breathlessly..... Proto Stonehenge finally revealed?


Well, you can't fault Robin's devotion to the Great God of news management -- info all over the place, including assorted blogs and web sites -- and even that learned publication the Western Telegraph (northern edition) -- about the launch event, the background, and the great new discovery of Proto Stonehenge.  Everything but the location and the details relating to the site........

The launch event was yesterday.  If anybody now has any info about WHERE this amazing site is located,  I'll be happy to post it on this blog.

Keep taking the tablets*, Robin (Proto-ein ones presumably....)

* available atop Angel Mountain?

Hope non of the images, diagrams, surveys etc publicised so effectively by RH, have been altAred to strengthen his argument.

Still mystified, although Robin goes on about the Carningli Triangle -- and of course assigns great mystical / mathematical properties to it. Within this triangle is a place he calls "Y Gaer" -- which is a name that simply means "The Rock". This lies to the WNW of the burial mounds at Crugiau Cemmaes. No trace of any such place on the maps, and I cannot see anything on Google earth either. Maybe the whole thing is a fabrication, and Robin is just gleefully pushing the boundaries, to see how gullible people really can be, when told a tale which sounds learned enough, by a man with a bushy beard?

BRIAN JOHN said...

I have checked some of Robin's "precise" triangles and alignments before, and found them to be not quite as precise as he pretends....... enough said.

TonyH said...

I keep meaning to mention Robin's theory, that there is more than meets the eye to the fact that part of Lundy Island lies exactly due west of that revered heap, Stonehenge, to my talented choir leader, as she regularly holidays and sings with family and friends on Lundy.
Mind you, as she has a Cambridge Engineering degree, I don't think she would be too easily convinced by Robin's blarney (or is it?).

TonyH said...

Of course, we often hear of the sage Thoughts of another "Man with a Bushy [ or is it well trimmed?" Beard", from a pseudonymous source, here on this Blog. Perhaps they're onto [or just On] Something....

Jon Morris said...

Weird how they phrase this release: "Despite the best efforts of archaeologists over four centuries".

You'd have thought, if he solved something new, that the release should have gone: "Using the past and most recent efforts of archaeologists"

Is this theory entirely independent of archaeological findings?

TonyH said...

Robin, then, it would appear from this tantalising press release, is still fascinated by triangles. His previous mega attempt incorporated Stonehenge, Lundy, northwards via Caldey island to the Preseli hills.

I don't get it and that is apart from the decision to make a world shattering announcement in Cardigan of all places and apart from the fact that here is another guy with a book to sell.

The triangle he draws links three monuments from different epochs and it does not look equilateral or anything that might be preconceived. After all any three points can be transposed into any triangle.

And where is the proto-stonehenge. Hopefully someone can thrown some light, otherwise I think this is just a big joke at the expense of some professional archaeologists that I won't name.

BRIAN JOHN said...

I like Cardigan -- as good a place as any to make an earth-shattering announcement. But I agree -- Robin is probably just playing games, and leading along both the media and the archaeological establishment. His proto-Stonehenge is probably all in the mind, and place that exists and yet does not exist, a place that should be there -- or somewhere -- even if it isn't.

As Clannad might have sung......."Robin, Robin......the muddled man".

AG said...

Archeologists must be finding this sort of triangulation much simpler now that there are no more Woolworth stores!

Popped into Wells Museum this week. They're still selling books on Ley lines? Is this also due to demand from Archeologists

I've just spotted this over at The Megalithic Portal site, which may (or may not) shed some more light on the subject:
