Time Stands Still: New Light on Megalithic Science

£19.99

Product description

Keith Critchlow, an internationally-renowned scholar, has studied a wide range of Neolithic artefacts. In Time Stands Still, he adopts a technique of cross-cultural comparison to uncover some previously unknown characteristics of the Neolithic peoples. He takes ancient temple-building manuals from Indian Vedic sources, for example, and applies them to British sites -- with fascinating results. He examines Chinese pictographs for evidence of sighting instruments and scientific tools. Perhaps most significantly, he offers evidence that stone-carved spheres with regular mathematical symmetries, found in Scotland, pre-date Plato's writings on geometric figures by more than a thousand years. The remarkable findings of this groundbreaking book are just as important today as when the book was first published.

The Book's Cover is a little creased at the bottom right corner. The Book and its contents are in otherwise Very Good Condition
