The Definitive 2008 Satellite (GPS) Survey of Woodhenge conducted by the Jenks's brothers.

And this is the result - Woodhenge - one of the keys to unlock Stonehenge

Above Is the result of the Jenks survey and there's none more accurate. So, if you think that professor Alexander Thom got it right, think again!

Maud Cunnington completely stripped Woodhenge when she excavated the site in 1926 through to 1928, when she noticed that some extra posts were added to its six egg-shapes and concluded that they formed a corridor through which the summer solstice sun could pass. The next picture shows what that corridor looks like.

Summer solstice 2009

The tape on the right is placed on the solstice corridor.

The tape on the left represents the axis of symmetry of the outer Egg A, which was found by making folded tracings. It also points the northernmost rising of the moon, otherwise known as the Major Standstill.

Woodhenge outer Ring A

Based on a pair of back-to-back 1 by 7 non-Pythagorean triangles. Three circles are cast from these triangles: 46 megalithic yards diameter to the north-east, with 47 diameters to south and south-west.

A line cast from one side of one of the triangles passes centrally between a pair of outriggers which lock this geometry in place. See main plan.

This is the result of folding a tracing of Ring A about its centreline, to prove it points at the moon, not the sun. Azimuth 39.8-degrees. So, Woodhenge was a moon-egg, which proves the Neolithic moon female!

Ring B: non-Pythagorean triangles measuring 6 by 35.5 by 36.0035MY. Azimuth (clockwise from north) 38-degrees

We have comprehensively shown that Woodhenge's two outer eggs, A and B, are aligned on the moon.  So why do archaeologists still ignore the facts. Well ,we have four more eggs to consider, but let's take some time out to consider how and why Professor Alexander Thom made such a mess of his Woodhenge survey.

The picture on the right says... 

Survey was made with a tape having a stretch of 0.6% (to 0.5 at 50 feet). Hence the megalithic fathom would have measured 5.44 divided by 1.006 or 5.41 feet.

Hence 5.41 feet is the unit used in setting out this diagram. It is thus applicable to the survey plotted with no stretch correction.

Also note his pencilled correction of ?0.4% when AT wonders if 0.4% might be better than 0.6% (My italics)

The picture on the left says:

Tape stretch 0.6% on 100 feet, 0.5% on 50 feet. Note: The plot is of the raw material, therefore, any measurements taken from the plot must be increased by 0.6% or as shown above.

As you can see, AT complained that he had measured Woodhenge with a ‘stretchy tape’. He claims to have estimated exactly how much was needed to be deducted from his measurements to put things right. This is a distinct lie because he was known to use steel tape. "A very careful survey, using a steel tape and theodolite, was made of the concrete posts which the excavators placed in the post-holes in the chalk." Megalithic Sites In Britain. A Thom, Oxford University Press, 1967. Furthermore, AT's concrete datum post remains on-site to this day, and living in Oxford, meant that a short trip to Woodhenge was easily possible when very few measurements were needed to put matters right.

 

Professor Thom  deliberately produced a distorted plan of Woodhenge by making an undersize plan of it. His plan of the outer egg (Thom himself called Woodhenge an egg) is proven by CAD to be 12.6 inches undersize (0.32 Metres). 

If all this wasn’t bad enough, he skewed the solstice 'round a bit' to make it look as if its six eggs were aligned on the sun.

Professor Thom, highly skilled engineer, with an Oxford University Department of Engineering  named after him, was not capable of such an obvious mistake, but he clearly had some reason for abandoning his cherished Megalithic Yard. 

The images shown above are taken from Alexander Thom's notebook which was gratefully provided by Edinburgh Museum. The museum also provided me with Thom's original co-ordinates, which when plotted on computer, gave a plot of Woodhenge that was upside down.


Professor Thom was a good guy until he came to Wiltshire and met some archaeologists. This would have been in the 1960's.

Thom started off, like so many of us, by becoming fascinated by our Stone Age monuments and their purpose. Living in Dunlop, Scotland, in his formative years, Thom, a keen and qualified engineer, set out to prove that Scotland's many stone circles, flatted circles, and egg-shapes, were all measured out using one common standard of measurement. This standard of measure, he named - The Megalithic Yard.

Thom's 'Yard' came under much criticism from the establishment and was told - despite having surveyed some 400 of the things - to go away and find further proof by measuring even more of them! 

Well he did, he went for the Biggy - Avebury. Not that it did him much good. Thom used Avebury's great size to refine his megalithic yard to 32.664 inches (0.83) metres. Thom, by this time, lived and worked in Oxford.
