Prehistoric Maps

Stonehenge lighting strike

Robert John Langdon's trilogy  'Prehistoric Britain'  tells the true story of Britain and the Megalithic People who built the stone monuments  of Stonehenge, Avebury , Woodhenge (Durrington Walls).


Langdon's Prehistoric Map Series


By Robert John Langdon


December 2013 saw the launch of my new Prehistoric Map Series with the release of the first three 1:50 000 scale and six 1:25 000 scale maps of central Wiltshire covering the topography of the four case studies contained in my book 'The Stonehenge Enigma'.


The maps cover a total of 800 sq km (500 sq miles) and contain not only over one thousand ancient monuments including Long and Round Barrows, earthworks and sites, but detailed locations of all the 'Post Glacial Rivers' within that area.


Post Glacial Flooded, Stonehenge

Area covered by the initial prehistoric series on a modern OS Map


I have decided to present these unique maps on the old Ordnance Survey one inch to a mile series created in the 1800's, as they show how the landscape looked before modern agriculture destroyed the natural historic environment including 400 barrows in just this one small area.  These excellent maps are ideal for the archaeologists and historians as they show some fantastic features such as individual standing stones and the original Sarsen rock crops which was still visible then.


For those who have not yet read my book  'The Stonehenge Enigma', my hypothesis states that after the last ice age when two miles of ice lay on our tiny little island, rather than the water from this great melt simply running away into the sea as most of the so called 'experts' believe, it did in fact seep into the soil and rocks creating vast lakes under the ground which hydrologists call 'aquifers' .


Hydrology Diagram


Because of the extreme mass of the melting ice (remembering that usually a couple of inches of rain normally results in massive flooding even today) the 126,000 inches of equivalent rain must have swamped the landscape after the last ice age and the evidence I presented in my book shows it stayed flooded for thousands of years afterwards.  And it was on this flooded landscape that man first built his monuments and sites as I will illustrate later.


On my Map Series the Post Glacial Flood waters are presented in two phases - the Light Blue showing the extent of flooding in the Mesolithic Period (10,500 BCE to 4,500 BCE) and the Dark Blue for the Neolithic Period (4,500 BCE to 2,500 BCE).  It should be remembered that the waters receded gradually over this eight thousand year period, so I have selected a maximum flooding level for each period to illustrate the extent of the waters.


Post Glacial Flooded Stonehenge

Light and dark blue show different time periods


So the waters illustrated by the the light blue colour were there no more than six thousand years, and in some cases less than a thousand years causing some scaring on the landscape in the form of dips and shallow valleys.  The dark blue river systems were there for nearly eight thousand years and a minimum of six thousand years creating the deep 'dry river valleys' we see today.


Now the book made a revolutionary and bold prediction - that all ancient monuments were built on the shorelines of these rivers and the book then concentrated on just four of these sites; Stonehenge, Avebury, Old Sarum and Durrington Walls (Woodhenge) to prove the hypothesis.  These maps go much, much further and looks at one thousand sites (has there ever been a greater test of a hypothesis?).


Some critics will look at the maps and see monuments in the predicted waterways - but don't jump to the conclusion that the hypothesis is incorrect - for not all of the ancient monuments here are built at the same time.  We are looking at ten thousand years of prehistory if we include Saxon and Viking barrows, so if half of these constructions were in the water (depending on the age) then we should not be overly surprised, for according to the laws of probability and chance at least half should be in the waters - but there not, as most they have been constructed in the Mesolithic or Neolithic period and lie on what was dry ground by the prehistoric waters edge.


Wilts, Barrows, Distribution Map

Distribution Map of the monuments against the Neolithic Water levels


If we look at the distribution map we see that about a dozen round barrows are in the predicted waters, so to understand why this is the case here, we need to see how archaeologists categorise the term 'barrow'.   It seems that this term is commonly used for ANY construction of mound built in history and not necessarily the prehistoric period we are studying.  So a barrow on an OS map could date from the age of Stonehenge to even the recent Medieval period.  Which is not very helpful and one of the many historic mismatches, which can lead to confusion.


So what can we see on these maps that we did not know before?


The answer to that question is EVERYTHING! I would be so bold to say that you can learn more about prehistoric monuments and why they located where they were than if you spend (as I have) many a long year in a classrooms with a dusty professors and their overhead projector slides, guessing at there use and the ceremonial nature of their construction.


What you should remember is that for the first time a map has been published showing not just the existing monuments, as you would find on a good OS map, but the missing features that modern maps and satellite photo's do not show - such as registered ancient monuments found through excavation. And yes I know you can get a list of monuments off the internet, but sadly most of there positions are wrong as they were mapped prior to GPS and dusty old professors have difficulty reading maps accurately.  Fortunately,  I have located most of these missing registered sites either from the old OS series or satellite photography over several years - a pains taking business believe me.


So lets look at my top ten sites for these newly released maps and learn some real history!


1. Stonehenge


Stonehenge, Post Glacial flooding Map

Stonehenge Area - Look at how they have lined up the Neolithic Barrows in line with the shoreline


This site is the basis for my book 'The Stonehenge Enigma' - as you can see from this newly released prehistoric map series of mine, the monument was surrounded by water in the Mesolithic Period (Light Blue) and hence the cover picture I've used of the book.  But the most important reason the waters in the Mesolithic are of great value is because in 1966 three/four post holes were found in the visitors car park, which as you can see here was on the shoreline of the river Avon. These posts were carbon dated and were found to be erected around 8000 BCE.  Moreover, this fact not only proves the maps are accurate but gives us the construction date of phase I of Stonehenge, which is five thousand year earlier than currently believed.


The other extraordinary feature of Stonehenge is its Avenue, as you see here it was constructed to meet the water level of the Neolithic Period some four thousand years after the Mesolithic Flood waters had subsided and were no longer flooding the visitors car park.


So one simple map - two of the greatest archaeological mysteries of the last 400 years resolved in just minutes - For these maps are the ultimate archaeological tool ever!



 2. The Cursus


While we are still on this small fraction of this map, we can even solve a third mystery called the Cursus.  Many a strange theory has tried to resolve this feature, yet with this map series to answered is painfully obvious.


In the past the prehistoric rivers used to flow through the centre of this site.  On one shore we find a Long Barrow made for the dead and on the opposite shoreline we find a Round barrow (no doubt representing the living).  So the Cursus represents the 'voyage' to the afterlife - But how do we know this?



Babylonian boat to the afterlife

Voyage to the afterlife as seen in Egypt and Mesopotamia


The religious traditions of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamian (as I will show in my new book released in June 2014 - Dawn of the Lost Civilisation) have always depicted death as a journey across water to the afterlife.   Here is a Mesopotamian picture of that same voyage and the walls of Egyptian temples show similar depictions of this most ancient belief system.



3. Vespasian's Camp

Prehistoric Vespasian Map


There has been a lot of media reporting about 'amazing and surprising' finds at a site close to Stonehenge called Vespasian's Camp - well it's no surprise to me for as you see it was an island in the Mesolithic (which means they needed a boat) and a prominent peninsula in the Neolithic.  For it was a trading post for those who travelled north from either Old Sarum to Avebury (the superhighway M25 of the Neolithic) or Stonehenge and therefore Vespasian's camp is the 'Clacket Lane' were you would have stop for quick wild boar burger or an overnight stay.


But I know what you are thinking - how do we know you knew they would find Mesolithic artefacts long ago?....... so lets make a prediction for the future, which is another positive aspect of these ancient treasure maps.


And that site is...


4. Ogbury Camp

Prehistoric Ogbury Camp

Ogbury Camp

Another 'pit stop' camp (has yet to be fully discovered) is Ogbury Camp - notice that the Mesolithic waters would have filled the moat for boats.


Ogbury Camp

Hoare's diagram 1810

There has been little to no excavation work this century and all we have is work undertaken nearly two hundred years ago, including this map.  A Neolithic Scrapper has been found (but the dating is questionable).  Moreover, the path at ten o'clock on the map (I would suggest to any budding amateur) would be the best place to look for post holes and artefacts, as it would have been used to transfer goods, from a new mooring point when the waters had dropped in the Neolithic.



5. Old Sarum


This place is a Case study in 'The Stonehenge Enigma' and from the map you can see why.


Prehistoric Old Sarum

Old Sarum


This was an island in both the Mesolithic and Neolithic and so would have been used for nearly ten thousand years.  Inside the moated island there are two harbours which would have dated from the Mesolithic Period but the huge ditches on the outside would have been constructed in the Neolithic Period as the waters receded to allow boats to dock.

Now lets go for something less obvious, to show just how powerful this map series can be!


6. Old Ditch - Compton Downs


Prehistoric Wiltshire

Old Ditch on Compton Down



Earthworks are one of the greatest mysteries to archaeologists and historians,  the history books will tell you they are either Roman, Saxon or Medieval, but what use are they to anyone?


I read recently in a well known archaeological magazine an article by a gulf war 'tactician' who believed that these were places built to stop carvery charges during the dark ages!! Sadly he failed to recognise that you could charge quite easily around the edge of these so called  'barriers' which would be much more 'sensible' than trying to go over the top against well defended troops - as most are usually less than a kilometre in length.


My maps make it obvious what they were, as the ditch connects to a water source and goes to yet another water source - its called a canal !!


Clearly on this map some of the old canal is missing from current view, which is no surprise as this feature is six thousand years old and would have been cut when the Mesolithic waters started to retreat and would be the only way reconnect to the existing settlements (remember this was a boat civilisation, walking and paths came much later) was to cut a ditch between two existing water sources.


Prehistoric Canals


The other interesting aspect of this part of the Map is the Long Barrow.  As my book shows these were used as both funeral monuments for the voyage to the afterlife and also as navigation markers.  So was the canal built to connect two waterways and the Long Barrow was a marker to steer ships towards the canal or it could be created to just access the Long Barrow much later when the Neolithic Waters receded?


I have yet to survey this area so, to be honest we don't even know if its a real Long Barrow (as archaeologists don't understand the difference between a burial boat and  oblong later Medieval mound).  So until someone armed with my map does some field walking we will never know?


7. Wansdyke


Looking at canals of the past this one is a real beauty!!


It took the Victorians one hundred years to build the Avon and Kennet canal - what they did not realise is that it had already been built six thousand years beforehand just 3km above their construction.


Ancient Wansdyke Map

This is a remarkable piece of engineering and my maps show the reason why it was dug in its position in the landscape and did not rely on using the rivers the Victorian adapted for their own connection.


Prehistoric Wansdyke Map

Click to make larger

Even on this partial section of Wansdyke (this is only the west section) it would have had over twelve sources of water to fill the ditch and keep it flooded for boats.  The Victorian had to use a system of 'locks' to move water around - our prehistoric ancestors just created a new river to sail upon, which begs the question - who are the better engineers?  I shall be bring out a book in the spring that looks at this engineering project in great detail but two aspects I would like to share with you here is the scale of this project.  The Avon and Kennet was 6m wide and 1.3m deep, Wansdyke is 21m wide and 3m deep.


Wansdyke - from the air

Wansdyke a six thousand year old canal - notice the dry valley to the right, this would be one of the twelve river feeds for this project


Another area of interest again proves the value of these maps and disproves current archaeological theories.  At the west end of the map we see something quite interesting.


Prehistoric Wansdyke

Wansdyke splits into two sections


Wansdyke splits into two sections - both of which join to a water source.  So did the ancient sailors have a choice of directions or did one of the water sources dry up and was another canal needed to be built?


Again only more detailed field walking on this site will be able to tells us, if it was a split in the river system one of those Barrows that surround the junction would have indicated the way - but which one, or is one on the exact junction missing?


What is obvious is that this is not a defensive earthwork as current archaeologists maintain, as you can see you can walk around the edge which is on the higher ground and what was the point of two ditches, did another tribe come from a different direction? - complete nonsense!!



8. Durrington Walls and Woodhenge


Prehistoric Durrington Walls (Woodhenge)

Durrington Walls & Woodhenge


My book goes into great detail about this site but for this blog just take a look how the River Avon lapped not only to the edge of this site but inside, as it was used as a natural harbour - if you don't believe me just take a look at the profile of this site and ask yourself a question.


Why build a 'henge' when the centre has such a slope that any house would get swamped by rain water running down the hill?


The question is even more relevant when you realise that on the edge of the site there is perfectly suitable flat ground which would not flood - so were there builders 'stupid' or did they have a very good reason for their madness - the map again answers this profound question.


Durrington Walls (Woodhenge)

Cross section of Durrington Walls with water


For clearly it is a harbour for boats which gives us a major scientific clue on why are 'henge' walls built on the outside of the ditch?  It can not be defensive again as it gives the advantage to the attacker, the only 'sensible' solution it that it shelters the harbour from the weather.  Sorry to disappoint the ritual and ceremonial 'nonsense' lobby, it just make complete sense and its good science.


The other fascinating aspect  at Durrington Walls is the Long Barrow.  Obviously, the harbour was built to accommodate visitors to Woodhenge, so was the Long Barrow placed there to attract boats to the harbour?



9.  Oldbury (Oldborough) Castle


We have already talked about Wansdyke and this marvellous achievement of engineering that was created six thousand years before Victorian engineers attempted the same feat with less success.  But prior to this connection between the Thames and the Bristol Channel, there was a natural waterway that connected the two and that was at Oldbury.


Prehistoric Oldbury Castle

Oldbury Castle


North of Oldbury there is a natural waterway that runs from Silbury Hill to the Bristol Channel.  Therefore, this site was an obvious port-of-call for boats travelling from the Avebury area.  I would suggest that at some point during the Neolithic Period (before Wansdyke) this area dried up due to the receding water levels and would have isolated the Castle.  So a canal was cut from the deeper waters to the castle which can still be seen in part on the map.


Now did the canal travel past the site?


I believe is option open to investigation, for it is possible that the main route north of the site make have dried up as well and if this is the case a new route needed to be found.  Clearly, the river connection to the canal in the east died up and a second additional canal seems to have been added to continue the use.



10. Avebury


I kept the best until last as one of the most important questions (and seems we answered so much with only these three newly published maps) archaeologists ask is what come first Avebury or Stonehenge and the answer is again simple and make sense when you reflect on the structures in detail.


Prehistoric Avebury

Avebury and Sibury Hill

During the Mesolithic at the time Stonehenge (as we have discussed earlier) Avebury consisted of only a concentric circle site at Windmill Hill as the surrounding ground was under water.  No doubt Windmill Hill was an important as an island as it laid on the main trading route between the Thames and the Bristol Channel.  By the end of the Mesolithic (about 4,500 BCE) the existing Avebury site was dry and Windmill Hill was no longer a island as the rivers receded (although the map shows a river did still service its western side of the site until the Neolithic).


So Avebury would have been built during the Early Neolithic period which architecturally makes sense as the Stones were bigger, the site was larger and the mooring ditches are the largest found in Britain. This takes better organised labour and larger boats to achieve, so a later date is more logical.


Silbury Hill therefore would have been built at the same time and as we suggested in my book become the first 'Light house' in the world and acted like a beacon attracting boats even at night to the safe harbour of Avebury.


This is just highlights of what these new prehistoric maps contain - there is much, much more we can study but more importantly these maps give us an incredible tools to discover new sites and prehistoric features for it shows a timeline which can date features more accurately than present.


I hope you enjoy studying this map series and it encourages you to go out and explore for yourself - who knows what new exciting pieces of history you will discover - and if you do let me know here and I will publish your field work.





Are you a historic 'Mushroom'?

The word ‘Mushroom’ is rarely used in historical connections. However, most of our history books are full of errors and incorrect assumptions. If you have never heard of this term before it is (in the kindest terms) used to describe a person or persons keep in the dark and feed with …………….. manure!


So is our history a ‘cock-up’ or is it a ‘conspiracy’?


 “He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.”  1984

George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four is a fictional account of the manipulation of the historical record for nationalist aims and manipulation of power. In the book, the creation of a "national story” by way of management of the historical record is at the heart of the debate about history as propaganda. To some degree, all nations are active in the promotion of such "state stories,” with ethnicity, nationalism, gender, power, heroic figures, class considerations and important national events and trends all clashing and competing within the narrative.

Such clever manipulation is almost impossible to identify if you have been indoctrinated into these ‘lies’, as you have no benchmark to judge them against. However, within those manipulations there will be facts that just ‘don’t make sense’! I have highlighted some of these facts in this book to illustrate that some of our history is quite simply nonsense - which could be due to ‘sleight of hand’ or what academia refers to as ‘peer review’, which is supposed to be a ‘firewall’ that keeps the nonsense out. However, in reality, all it has done over the years is kept the perpetuated nonsense in, giving it greater credibility than it deserves.

The classic example is the case of Galileo Galilei; (15 February 1564 – 8 January 1642), who was an Italian physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher who played a major role in the Scientific Revolution. His achievements include improvements to the telescope and consequent astronomical observations and support for Copernicanism (sun centered solar system) Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational astronomy”, the "father of modern physics”, the "father of science”, and "the Father of Modern Science”.

Three hundred and fifty years ago he was not father to anything; he was a 'heretic’ as he believed that the earth went around the sun, contrary to the bible. Galileo did not have the internet to promote his hypothesis and the church had ‘peer reviewed’ his ideas and found them false and contradictory the then academic belief (as they had total control over the education system) which centered the earth in this religious universe. Moreover, even after verification of his evidence and acceptance of his theories, it still took another fifty years for the ‚Inquisition’s ban’ on reprinting Galileo’s works to be lifted in 1718, when permission was granted to publish an edition of his works (excluding of course the condemned Dialogue’s) - the church finally lifted the partial ban in 1835, just 178 years ago and 193 years after his premature death. The credibility of ‘Peer Review’ was perfectly summed up by Richard Horton, editor of the British medical journal The Lancet, who said that:

"The mistake, of course, is to have thought that peer review was any more than a crude means of discovering the acceptability—not the validity—of a new finding. Editors and scientists alike insist on the pivotal importance of peer review. We portray peer review to the public as a quasi-sacred process that helps to make science our most objective truth teller. But we know that the system of peer review is biased, unjust, unaccountable, incomplete, easily fixed, often insulting, usually ignorant, occasionally foolish, and frequently wrong" - So much for peer review!

 But why are there so many mistakes in our history?


Homo sapiens are the only creatures capable of abstract thought and a ‘perception’ of time, creating a manipulation of thought concerning the past, the future and the present. An inquiry into the nature of history is based (in part) on a working understanding of time as a human experience. Therefore, history (as understood by Western thought) tends to follow an assumption of this linear progression: "this happened, and consequently, that happened; and so that happened because this happened first.” This is also known as the ‘cause and effect’ philosophy. Yet most ancient cultures held a mythical conception of history and time that was NOT linear. They believed that history was cyclical with alternating Dark and Golden Ages.

In Hesiod’s ‘The Works and Days’ he described the five ages of Man: the Gold Age, the Silver Age, the Bronze Age, the Heroic Age, and the Iron Age, each with their ebbs and flows of progression.  Other scholars suggest there were just four ages, corresponding to the four metals, and the Heroic age was a description of the Bronze Age. The clearest illustration of this ‘ebb and flow’ of historical invention can be seen with the Roman Villa. The use of a ‘hypocaust system’’ created a house that had ‘under floor’ heating, which is much more efficient than fires or radiators - yet if this house was found without reference archaeologists using ‘linear’ logic would conclude that it must have been built in the 21st century as all previous houses lacked the superior design.

So if our linear history is fundamentally flawed, where are these problems and are there a more rational explanation for them?



The Robert John Langdon Trilogy - Prehistoric Britain

12,000 years ago the last Ice Age finally melted, revealing the Britain we know today... 

OR DID IT?

Britain had been underneath two miles of ice and the surrounding seas had frozen solid. What was left was a huge icy mass of enormous weight, pushing down on this tiny island. This mass had compressed the earth so much that the land surface lay at least a half a mile below the sea bed as we know it today.
So what exactly happened after the great ice age melt?

This huge mass of watery ice that covered Britain raised the groundwater tables and left the land totally saturated. In fact, the volume of water was so great that it eventually created the English Channel and the North & Irish Seas. Very slowly, the land then started to rebound, so slowly in fact that even now, parts of Britain are still rising about one cm per year. This melting ice combined with the lowering of the land levels created not the single island called Britain we know today, but a series of smaller islands and waterways - totally unrecognisable to the landscape that is so familiar to us now. 

Moreover, the land became a sub-tropical forest as the warmer climate that first melted the polar ice caps encouraged the growth of abundant foliage. This would very probably have caused the islands to experience what we would consider today to be monsoon seasons. Which in turn then kept groundwater tables abnormally high for another 4,000 years? The foliage, groundwater and warm climate would have left the islands resembling more like the Amazonian rain forest, rather than the grassy hills of Britain we see today.

The only way our Mesolithic ancestors of Britain could have had to adjust to this new environment would have been to develop and use their boat and seamanship skills. Consequently, adapting to living and trade by these shorelines travelling via the vast waterways and lakes rather than through the forests, which would have been riddled with dangers such as brown bears, packs of wolfs and wild boar all roaming freely. Therefore, the shorelines became critical – our Mesolithic ancestors would have lived, worked and gathered by these ‘super-waterways’ and would have created social monuments and beacons on there beaches and peninsulas.

My hypothesis proposes that our greatest prehistoric monuments, such as Stonehenge, were built on these watery peninsulas. I also propose that the ditches surrounding henges were NOT dry ditches, as archaeologists currently believe, but were, in fact, constructed to be watery moats and canals, which turned these sites into very special islands. The most astonishing aspect of this hypothesis is that even today, thousands of years after the groundwater have subsided, we can re-visit these sites and identify the ports and channels of this bygone age and by using the landscape, we can date, more accurately than ever before, when the sites were initially constructed.

Another key component of my hypothesis is the discovery of navigational signposts (Long Barrows), built within the landscape, on the banks of these waterways. Traditionally, archaeologists have believed that these had religious or ceremonial use, whereas my evidence shows that they had a more functional engineering purpose, helping our ancestors to navigate around these islands. 

In fact, the book will show for the first time, that these signposts guided our ancestors when they transported enormous stones from the Preseli Mountains in Wales to the site at Stonehenge – by boat. These very stones were used to build the first phase this magnificent monument. Even more importantly, I can show the exact location of where these vast stones were unloaded from the boats and how this precious cargo and the mechanism used to lifted onto shore. 

This discovery of this landing site has led us to accurately date for the first time the original construction date of Stonehenge - 7500BC to 8000BC. This is 5,000 years earlier than current archaeological estimations, making Stonehenge probably the oldest Stone Monument in the world.

13 Ancient things that don't make sense in History

13 things


Contents

1.                  Ten thousand year old boats found on Britains Hillsides - 7,000 years before they          were invented.

 

2.                  Gigantic Prehistoric Canals - that are technically superior to even Victorian engineering.

 

3.                  Roman ports miles away from the coast – when sea levels are apparently rising.

 

4.                  Raised Beaches - that have never met the sea.

 

5.                  Giant skeletons - found by French archaeologists now dismissed by todays scientists.

 

6.                  Mythological Dragons - a non-existent animal that is shared by the world.

 

7.                  Sunken land of the North Sea - was the worlds oldest and greatest civilisation.

 

8.                  Troy was located in Turkey - although it took Jason ten years to get home to Greece.

 

9.                  Antler Picks that built ancient Monuments - yet there is no real evidence for this             myth.

 

10.                Recent Landscape Flooding & Storms - the secret our ancient ancestors knew about         Britain’s weather.

 

11.                Alexander the Great sailed into India - where no rivers exist today.

 

12.                Columbus was the first western man to reach America - yet bones and tools suggest      that Europeans came 10,000 years earlier.

 

13.                Quantum of Solstice – Pythagoras triangles show that Stonehenge holds mathematical s        ecrets before its time.
