Bush Barrow Lozenge and Clandon Gold Plate

The gold Bush Barrow Lozenge on the left was discovered near Stonehenge in 1908. Measuring 7 inches tall it lay across the chest of the skeleton of a tall man. The nine fold geometry produces acute angles which define the range of sunrises at the latitude of Stonehenge, while the obtuse angles match the extreme rising and settings of the Moon. The Clandon Gold Plate found near Dorchester appears to provide the same information but at a more southerly latitude.
