When Chris and I got together we set out to rescue the repution of a remarkable man. He was Professor Alexander Thom, an engineer from Scotland who spent most of his life teaching at Oxford University. In his spare time Thom was obsessed with the Megalithic monuments of Britain and France. He surveyed many hundreds of them very carefully and was able to add much to our understanding of the late Stone Age and Bronze Age structures. However, one of his fndings wasn't so welcome. Over the years he came to the irrevocable conclusion that all these monuments had been built using the same units of measurement - a unit he called the Megalithic Yard. Experts said he must be wrong, but the verification kept coming in.
We decided to go into the matter ourselves, to try and establish if the Megalithic Yard was genuine and if so where it had come from. It was the start of a great adventure as, little by little, we uncovered something truly remarkable. The Megalithic Yard was just the starting point of a whole integrated system of geometry and measurements that were more accurate and useful than the ones we use today.
The very size and even the mass of the Earth were inegral to this measuring system and we scanned the civilizations of the past to find more and more traces of it. We ultimately came to the conclusion that the Megalithic system as we called it, must have been created long ago by a super-civilization, the details of which are otherwise lost to us. This book began a co-operation that has now been going for nearly two decades and the excitement of our findings still thrills me today.
