THE BOOK
Some of the ideas discussed in this blog are published in my new book called "The Stonehenge Bluestones" -- due for publication on June 1st 2018. After that, it will be available by post and through good bookshops everywhere. Bad bookshops might not have it....

Hilarious..........



A old friend of mine, Ian Evans, who keeps an eye on such things, has spotted this on Researchgate:

"With 440 new reads, Brian John was the most read author from Durham University last week."

I think that's quite wonderful, given that I left Durham University almost 40 years ago in order to enjoy a quiet life in the country........

PS.  When you sign up on Researchgate you have to give your present or past academic affiliation.

I use (read) academia.edu by preference. This gives open access and today, for example, I read an interesting paper by George Nash on the aligned monuments on stumble head. I would venture that he is well worth consulting about where to look in the general area of Brynberian Moor and hopefully the MPP team already did.

I think I tried to join Researchgate by being honest and was rejected. I did not try again because there is something instinctively uninteresting about a club to which only proper academics may belong.

Chris -- we already have George's opinion on Bedd yr Afanc.

I thought anybody could read what's on Researchgate? Maybe they have a different policy regarding uploads of scientific papers? Although I retired many moons ago, there wasn't a problem in signing up. I sent them a huge bundle of old offprints, and they copied and digitised them and put them on the site. I am rather impressed with them.....

I gather Myris sticks his papers onto Academia? No doubt they are good too.
