Ancient Britain
Peak District

ARBOR LOW
AQUILA
ALTAIR

The "Peak" District in ancient days
in a megalithic context
was surely the "Beak" district
marking primarily
the stars of Aquila.

Arbor Low marked the location of Altair,
while Minning Low marked Sagitta.

Backstone Edge marked Al Thalimain, lambda-Aquila.

The Bridestones, Congleton, marked delta-Aquila.
Bull Ring at the Dove Holes and Gardom's Edge, Chesterfield
each marked one of the remaining corners of Aquila.

The Devil's Ring and Finger marked the tailfeathers of Aquila.

Arbor Low Aquila Altair



Between Capricorn and Aquila there are no stars to speak of, and we
will see that the ancients note this explicitly on some of their megaliths.

On the ground, to get from Capricorn in England to Aquila, we have to
go clear to the Peak or "Beak" District, south of the Vale of Eden
and the Lake District. The River Eden flows there into the sea at Carlisle
near the geodetic center of the British Isles, when one includes Ireland.

Altair and Aquila are marked by Arbor Low in Derbyshire, near Parwich.
Arbor Low is one of the most interesting sites in Ancient Britain,
being one of the three largest "henges" in all of England, with 42 STONES.

For the astronomical analyis, Arbor Low is fantastic,
because we have been able to place ALL the stones
as to their appropriate stellar constellations (see the drawing above).

This was possible since ALL the stones of Arbor Low are laid flat on
the ground - this appears to have been intentional, since the stones
are not long enough at the ends to be inserted into the ground without
covering up their shape or cupmarks. Wondrous beyond all doubt, is
also that they have retained these positions for thousands of years -
without apparent vandalism or ruin - unbelievable. It speaks for the
people of this region.

Then, to make it all possible,
we used the book
PREHISTORIC BRITAIN  FROM THE AIR,
by Janet & Colin Bord - with photography by Jason  Hawkes
(published by Phoenix Illustrated, the Orion Publishing Group,
Orion House, 5, Upper St Martin's Lane, London, WC2H 9EA).

In that book,
there are two wonderful aerial photographs
of Arbor Low and the stones
- close enough to see the stones clearly -
and the rest was
just good hard work.
We count 42 STONES
as recognizable star groups viz. constellations.


These 42 Stones "may"
- we shall see in the course of time -
bear some hermetic relation
to the 42 "nomes" of ancient Egypt
and the 42 "temples" of Sumer
as found in the Sumerian Temple Hymns.
