Astrological Complex of Earthworks at Wandlebury and Hatfield
Forest from the Third Millenium BC"
Christian and Barbara Joy O'Brien
treatise is the record of five years of field-work and computation
carried out over the whole of East Anglia and its border areas
to the west. As a study of possible astronomical alignments
of great antiquity, marked on the ground by monoliths and earthen
mounds, it has had to use many disciplines - archaeology, astronomy,
geology, mathematics, geodesy and tertiary surveying. As no
man is master of all these, least of all the author, frequent
mistakes have been made. And yet the original working hypothesis
has survived all vicissitudes, and has become more firmly grounded
as successive mistakes have been corrected In the absence of
a written record, there can be no proof that the, admittedly
remarkable, claims put forward, here, are not a mirage of purely
random events. But great care has been taken that each step
should be supported by a calculated, negligible probability
of randomness. On my handling of this factor, must rest the
acceptability, or otherwise, of the conclusions reached - Christian

Wandlebury Enigma Solved?
- Line A Loxodrome
Telegraph Magaziine - March 1978
Loxodrome is a line on the earths surface making a constant
angle with the meridian, the construction of which requires
knowledge of the earth's dimensions, thus forming the
basis for Meridian Astronomy. This includes all observations
made for the purposes of time determination, and most
of the positional observations made visually - both of
fundamental importance to astronomers.]
- Golden Age Project comment
Britains great megalithic heritage an accident,
or legacy from an intelligent and superior race who visited
these shores 5,000 years ago? No indigenous culture was
capable of building sites like Wandlebury, says Tim OBrien,
who believes he has new evidence which will rewrite history.
DAVID HOPPIT donned stout walking shoes and went with
OBrien in search of the proof.
- Tim and Joy O'Brien at Wandlebury - they conclude that
whoever built the site knew, 5000 years ago, that the
Earth was round.
