DRUID TEMPLE FARM - SCOTLAND
Inverness Leys Castle Bootes Ursa Major

First-time users please read the Index Page thoroughly for understanding.


The Druid Temple Farm near Leys Castle and Inverness is a site which was ransacked and nearly destroyed in the past by amateur archaeologists, i.e. treasure-hunters, looking for gold, because in 1824 a gold torque, hooked on both ends and ca. 56 inches long, was found there. Of course, no more gold was found. The gold torque came into the hands of a local Inverness jeweler and has not been seen since, probably having been melted for jewelry products. Avarice is always an enemy of ancient artifacts.

The Druid Temple Farm represents one "hooked" end of Ursa Major, at a star now counted to Boötes, the star theta-Boötes, also known as Asellus Primus. Whether the torque had any relation to Ursa Major as a heavenly "measuring rod" or whether the torque was round or straight - and hence perhaps used as a golden megalithic cubit - is not known, since no record was kept, and the gold torque is now gone.

Was theta-Boötes important? YES. It had an astronomical significance because it was on a line with and halfway between the north ecliptic pole and the galactic pole in 3117 BC, with an angular separation of almost exactly 30 degrees from both locations. In fact, 2 x 684 years earlier, in ca. 4485 BC, the North Celestial Pole was also on this line. Asellus Primus (theta-Boötes in the handle of Ursa Major) is then also ca. 30 degrees angular separation from the end star Dubhe in Ursa Major and Arcturus in Boötes. That is why this star was attached an importance for measurement. It is also why Coma Berenices was so important to the ancients, since the North Galactic Pole is located there.
