Having the paper 'From the Rollrights to Stonehenge' accepted by the Association of European Archaeologists is a huge step forward for the 21st century metrologists investigating the design of the ancient stone circles.

The Saxon foot 1.1 English feet is the unit of translation to produce astronomical information in the perimeters and diameters and possibly more importantly the areas of the circles and ellipses. This is a stepping off point into the past that has been considered and accepted and can be used as a focus to drive futher investigations.

There is a problem at Stonehenge in that many investigations pluck the diameter and circumference seemingly out of thin air.

It is important to set a standard for the Saxon foot to be used against, when investigating Stonehenge, and it involves sorting out the wheat from the chaff, in respect of completed and recorded Stonehenge investigations.

Professor Mike Parker Pearson has co authored a paper that identifies the diameter of the first phase of Stonehenge the Aubrey circle as 285.60 imperial feet. He is the current person in charge of all work at Stonehenge so this can be considered reasonably reliable evidence. This diameter is also confirmed to the findings of Professor Alexander Thom in the 1960's amd 70's. He confirmed that the circumference was required to be in whole numbers often expressed in units of 2.5 of the base unit.

Thom also confirmed, based on an investigation he supervised but did not carry out, that the diameter of the postholes from centre to centre was 283.60 feet giving the radius of the postholes as 1 imperial foot exactly. It is important to realise that Thom was given 'carte blanche' to investigate Stonehenge, this is how highly his work was rated at the time.

So the baseline for further investigation is set. Use the Saxon foot against a diameter of 285.60 English feet and use pi as 22/7 remembering that there is a possibility that units of one English foot are held within the design.

This starting point is based on well researched and recorded findings and is well know to all archaeologists but not necessarily clarified until now.

Applying the use of the Saxon foot to the diameter produces a strange decimal number

285.6 / 1.1 = 259.6363636r.

It is important at this point, to introduce one of the 'rules' for further investigation.

Explain your decimals. This is possibly the worst way to engage a reader with a theory on Stonehenge. They simply did not do decimals. They probably used fractional maths as 22/7 indicates. Fractions certainly offer a better understanding of the reasoning applied to the design of the circles.

So 259.63636363636r --- what is it as a fraction because these recurring decimals can always be expressed in fractions?

But the starting point is also decimalised as 285.60.

This can be overcome by making the English foot represent 100 units so 28560 is the starting point.

The diameter is then expressed as 28560 / 110 in Saxon feet.

So now it can be multiplied by the Pi approximation of 22/7.

28560/110 x 22/7 = 628320/770 = 816.

This is the base unit in the system discovered by Thom. So the Aubrey Circle is 816 Saxon feet. Dividing by 2.5 or 5/2 gives 3264/10 and this is an expession in Thom's megalithic yards.

In terms of astronomical units the Nodal cycle of the Moon is 6800 days and this divides by 2.72 the unit Thom has been repeatedly challenged against and has now been cast aside by the whole of the archaeology profession.

6800 / (272/100) = 2500.

Thom never made this link in his work but it is there at Stonehenge without question using bona fide evidence that is reliable.

This starting point was established in my first book but without the Saxon foot, and what an enormous difference it makes!!

The theme throught the book is ---without Thom's work ---we have no starting point for investigation.

The starting point is now redefined as the circumference of the Aubrey circle is 816 Saxon feet using a unit accepted as ancient by the European Association of Archaelogists.

The units held in the circumference can be expressed as

330 imperial feet x 272/100 imperial feet = 89760/100 imperial feet or

300 Saxon feet x 272/100 imperial feet = 816 Saxon feet.

The dreaded decimal places disappear and the explanation becomes very simple using the imperial base 12 system.

So the acceptance of Wakefield's paper signifies a turning point and a reference point that needed to be established.

My first book is sold out except for a few copies in my local bookstore at Scarthin Books, Cromford, Derbyshire. A second print run is not being considered.

The book lays out a methodology for the investigation of the Stonehenge first phase the Aubrey circle. The Sarsens came much later. When written the link between the imperial and Thom's system had not been established despite countless hours of computer modelling. It is ironic that when it was discovered it was a simple 33/34 relationship.
