Surveys the most recent theories about the stone rings and standing stones of Great Britain. Demonstrates the possibility that the ancient Britons may have had sophisticated systems of mathematics, astronomy, and geometry that anticipated the Greeks. Examines the work of Alexander Thom, an ex-Oxford Professor of Engineering, who has dedicated his life to the study of the stone circles of Britain. Thom takes us on a tour of the sites of Britain's most significant megaliths as he carefully builds a case for the astronomical significance of each of these stone-age observatories. Shows how the builders were able to predict eclipses, develop an accurate calendar and imply Pythagorean geometry 2,000 years before Pythagoras
