Stonehenge and Avebury head the list of Ancient British megalithic sites calling for archaeological interpretation, while in Ireland the monuments of Drombeg, Newgrange and Knowth claim highest attention. Considerable progress in solving their meanings is reported in this volume when, firstly, core principles embedded in the stone settings at Drombeg Stone Circle are firmly established. Specific aspects of the culture were retrievable because the builders left interpretable clues by way of stored symbols and images together with clues arising from the precision with which stone positions had been decided. Attention to such detail led to understanding the logic behind stone selection and settings at Stonehenge and Avebury. Solving Drombeg was key to cracking the code built into these monuments. The final breakthrough came from recognizing that stone-to-stone interactions by shadows cast at sunrise on particular dates of the year are always between a stone classifiable as male with an acceptor stone identifiable as female. A window has opened into the lost culture of the Neolithic communities of these ancient lands which should interest everyone worldwide attracted by such enigmas.
