During the British Neolithic, circa 4000-2500 BC, we witness the appearance of numerous ceremonial and domestic monuments dominating the prehistoric landscape. Providing an absolute total of how many were built during this period is not possible. Undoubtedly, we could be looking at a figure in the thousands. And, if we accept the opinion of archaeologist Andrew Flemming, then the architectural form of these structures was so designed that their appearance visibly indicated the specific types of ritual or other usage that could be legitimately held there. Accordingly, their respective designs would have had to been well thought out: their architecture had to meet the visual and experiential expectations of the people. All in all, one is led to consider the possibility that any style of monument was the result of deliberate planning and that the prehistoric builders were using megalithic mathematics to help them with design. But this is where we hit the major drawback to this assertion which this article attempts to tackle. More

What are the available recorded songs that Bill played drum kit on? I think it’s been discussed before but my understanding is he played drums on most of the songs on ‘Northern Dream’ and many of the songs on ‘Sound On Sound.’

Hi Bill, I'd just assumed that you played bass on 'Bounds of Reason, Bonds of Love' on 'Wild & Moody.' Is that a keyboard bass and are you playing it? There's no credit for it.

A long illness. Unique face and voice, Gilbert Gottfried, and I liked his strangeness and charm.

Archaeologists are closer than ever to locating a lost medieval town sometimes referred to as Yorkshire’s “Atlantis,” beneath the waves. Also called Ravenser Odd, the town flourished in what is now east Yorkshire along the east coast of England during the Middle Ages before it was lost to the sea. “It was a major settlement of some 400+ households,” Daniel Parsons, a professor of sedimentology at the University of Hull in Yorkshire, told Live Science in an email. Historical records say that the site had a sea wall, harbor, prison and marketplace, Parsons said. A search for Ravenser Odd in November 2021 in part of the Humber River estuary turned up empty; but now the team believes that it is getting closer than ever now that they have narrowed down the remaining area where it could be located.
