Submerged Dolmens and Coastal Monuments

Rostellan

This excellent website has animations and pictures of the Rostellan dolmen in Cork Bay, Ireland

https://voicesfromthedawn.com/rostellan-portal-tomb/

 

Yelland Stone Row, near Barnstaple, Devon

This monument of uncertain age is now lost in the silt of the Taw estuary. Its submergence shows us how difficult it would be to find other structures lost further out beneath the sea bed.

and there are submerged forests in the same area.

Other coastal tombs from the Middle Neolithic may be found at Er Lannic, Brittany:

The Welsh Triads

The best translation of these is still  that of Rachel Bromwich, but her version of the third series triads is not available online. There is a new open-source English version here:

Akhenaten and Eclipses

In parallell with my own eclipse investigations: 1998-2005 for  Under Ancient Skies the following paper by William Murray came out in 2003. It represents genuine parallell thinking on the same subject:

My own unpublished 2006 paper to close the research is available here or from the Features page:

Chaotic Motion and the Earth's Wobble

In extreme circumstances the core wobble of the Earth could become chaotic in a similar way to that of a double pendulum. You will need to brush-up on your differential equations to understand that one! The late Peter Warlow proposed in the 1970s  that such a motion could cause the Earth's axis to completely turn-over and may be the cause of magnetic reversals (a-la-Velikovsky). Its is unlikely to have occurred during human prehistory, but we shouldn't rule it out for distant geological epochs. Here are a few links to follow:
