king arthur’s hall, bodmin. a rectangular embankment measuring 47m x 20m (johnson and rose) (48 x 21 barnett) with its wide earthen sides has an entrance at its south west corner. its sunken interior interior is lined with 56 standing stones (burl, barnatt) and has strong affinities with crucuno in brittany (j&r) barnett states the stones vary height between small to head height, set on the inner edge of a steep sided bank between 3.5m and 6m wide, and 2m high. he thinks there were about 140 stone originally surrounding a central dished area which often contains a pool of water. there is no sign of a external ditch and the embankment was therefore possibly supplied from its centre. it was first recorded by norden in 1584, suggesting is was by then already an ancient structure. he suggest a possible relation with neolithic mortuary enclosures known in southern england or a variant form of henge; similar to those at lios and other sites in ireland or to meini gwyr in southwest wales all having stones set on the inner edge of a large bank. several having scooped interiors. (barnett) a more closer association might be made with the stripple stones some 1.75 miles away to the south east, which although circular in form has an embankment and inner stones arranged around a central stone. the closest part of brittany to this part on cornwall is the cronin peninsular where several rectangular stone structures stand- lanveoc, its sides cardinally aligned east-west and it’s possible polar and equinoctial orientations, ty ar e’hure, the curates house nr morgat, with its alignment with mid summer and mid winter sunrises. it is unlikely to be co-incidental that the extremely rare english rectangle on bodmin moor is situated where it is and is also cardinally aligned north-south (burl) crucuno, plouharnel is a symmetrical rectangle, 33.2m x 24.9m, and arranged extremely precisely and oriented east-west toward the equinoctial sunsets it’s diagonal also aligning the mid summer and mid winter sunsets. burl also relates this site with king arthur’s hall as well as the four stations at stonehenge with its sides and diagonals associated with solar and lunar events.

two sides of the same story. the most easterly and largest stone in an array of 5 holed stones on truthwall common, tregeseal on the sloping ground below carn kenidjack. the projected shadows of which might function as markers for the approaching seasons. the holes are low down on the stones such that they would only appear in the projected shadow at low sun elevations ie at sunrise and sunset. in addition the holes have been fashioned in such a way that the ‘focus’ of the sun’s rays falls between the two surfaces of each stone; the holes tapering down from a larger diameter at the stone’s surface toward a smaller one at the stone’s centre and then out again forming a ‘lens’ so that the hole can be projected sharply onto the surface of the ground. is it possible that this might be used as a sun dial fixing the time of the solstices for example? as the position of the rising and setting sun moves with the changing seasons and the holes in each stone appear and disappear the approach of the seasons might be plotted? #sundial, #holedstone, #shadow, #projection, #solstice, #seasons, #ancientwisdom, #ancientastronomy,

the ‘eye of time’ sculpture. university of leicester. designed by allan mills. it is an analemma calendar that uses a small aperture to shine a spot of sunlight that marks out a figure of eight along which the date throughout the year can be marked. (photo taken at 11:49 GMT on 05-12-2009). the university believes the design to be unique, although it is one that most closely resembles the ‘sunstone’ on zennor hill which could be prehistoric in origin. this also projects the rays of the sun across its main surface which is inclined slightly off the vertical and set north-south. In astronomy, an analemma is a diagram showing the position of the sun in the sky, as seen from a fixed location on earth at the same mean solar time, as that position varies over the course of a year. the analemma has been projected onto the floors of buildings using a small oculus set in its south facing wall. the axis it traces is also oriented north-south. it is typically used to calculate the timing of the equinoxes and the solstices.

solar noon dial. measures not the hourly cycle of the sun but its cycle across the seasons. the reading is taken at the sun’s zenith at noon, along a single meridian line, oriented north/south. it is intended for the accurate determination of the equinoxes and solstices. traditionally It has a nodus rather than a full gnomon, and may be in the form of a small ball on the end of a shaft or, more usually, a small circular aperture projecting a image of the sun onto the floor of the building. very long meridian lines were built into cathedrals. the basilica di danta maria degli angeli e dei martiri in rome has such a line. see last two photos zennor hill sunstone seems to fit this description. this is an upturned, stone solutions basin positioned some 5* short of the vertical, with the basin’s surface oriented north to south. a small hole and notch in the basin’s rim projects the sun’s rays across its surface each day at the solar noon, so that it’s changing angle can reflect the changing seasons. a careful noting of its position would reveal the timing of the yearly solstices and equinoxes in much the same way as a solar noon dial. photo dated june 21 11.27 2014
