Re: More accurate data (Re: Stonehenge Hidden Landscape Project - Cursus/HeelStone solstitial alignments)

"Hmm - the azimuth of the (assumed) west pit from the Heelstone is over 311, which is a degree north of where summer sunset is today.

That means the alignment must date from a time when the Earth's axial tilt was near its maximum of 24 21' (but we've got to assume my overlay of the preliminary geophys results is exactly right, which it may not be - wish there were OS grid refs of the pits available right now)."

But then the East pit has the wrong date?
