I have been corresponding with Harry Sivertsen.  Harry is an amateur archeo-astronomer and writer who uses the astronomy programs Skymap Pro and Starry Night Pro to analyse the rising and setting of the sun, moon and stars at different dates in antiquity.  It is early days, but the results are pointing towards a date of around 2500 BCE, the transition from the Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age, for the establishment of these alignments.

    Hi Mike
    I am living in Horsham – recently moved and would like to know if any of your research has come down this way please?

    Many thanks T C

      Hi Tracey,
      Thanks for your interest, always appreciated. If you read the home page on my website, you will see that initially I restricted my research to a limited area centred on Guildford. Since then I have looked at various outlying locations but have found only a very few sites, usually suggested by other interested people or from publications such as the Surrey Archaeological Society bulletins. If you have any thoughts on possible alignments in your area, let me know. I am always seeking to expand this study and need the help of other enthusiasts.
