Mount Pleasant was one of the last, if not the very last geometric egg to be built by the beaker people, who by now were swarming all over the place. The design starts with two eggs - the outer egg (Ring A) points to the northernmost setting of the moon - and Ring B egg points to the northernmost setting sun. Alignments stated by Professor John North in his book, Stonehenge: Neolithic Man and the Cosmos 1996. North J.
Having marked out the two eggs, the beaker people turned their attention to finding a way of expressing a wish for those eggs to grow. The fact that this would mean distorting the egg-shapes somewhat, didn't seem to bother them.
The thoughts that went into the design of Mount Pleasant hark back to Woodhenge near Stonehenge. That Woodhenge is a moon egg is an established fact. And if you heard it any other way, you heard wrong.
Woodhenge was surveyed in 2007 by the Jenks brothers, and it was Hugo Jenks who noticed that Ring C embodied several 10-degree angles, two posts of which fixed the north south line with some accuracy.
It was the borrowing of Hugo's ideas and taking them to Mount Pleasant that enabled the 100 by 80-degree perfect rhomboids seen above. Starting with a rhomboid that measures 14 megalithic yards, those rhomboids increase geometrically - i.e., they grow - by 10 plus one at every step.
The Bush-barrow lozenge of gold, seen in the middle, is here proven to be an astronomical device not based on hexagonal geometry. Founded on an 80 by 100-degree rhomboid, the lozenge is 9MI long after allowing for its rounded corners.
Finally, we find that rotating the rhomboids and lozenge through 90-degrees gives an equally impressive result.
Furthermore, Site IV, as the excavator Wainwright, called it, can be shown to accommodate many of the other items of gold. The 1.5 megalithic inch 60 by 120 -degree, small bush barrow lozenge is covered, as is the 70 by 110 degree, Dorsetshire Clandon barrow lozenge.
I also suspect some rectangles, such as that found in a barrow at Little Cressingham, Norfolk, might fit too, if only we knew exact sizes!
