A New and Original Investigation of Stonehenge
“Ewbank’s writing and drawings are a joy! This book has given me a whole new perspective on both Stonehenge and Neolithic life!”
About the book
Was Stonehenge an epic building or a mere collection of well placed slabs?
Sarah Ewbank’s book – Stonehenge – Temple Cipher Roof – reconsiders this ancient monument’s true purpose and inadvertantly rocks modern dogma built on shaky footings by current archaeologists.
Facts and evidence that support of Stonehenge’s roof are presented as a lively jargon-free read.
How would you brave the winter solstice?
“Rarely is conventional dogma challenged so conclusively, so convincingly, as it has been here. There is no doubt that the Stonehenge roof theory, put forward by Ewbank, will be written into history.”
A mere circle of stones or a building with a spectacular roof!
Learn about the rationale behind a large thatched roof and the impressions that remain in Stonehenge’s stones which support it’s positioning.
Lose yourself in the history of Stonehenge and over 400 colour images!
Fantastic colour photos, renderings and illustrations, makes the book easy to follow.
Question what you know about our ancestors.
Ewbank encourages readers to reconsider popular delusions about our forebears. She sees not a group of drudges who accidentally bunged some stones in the ground, but an advanced society familiar with geometry and specialised building techniques. This work rewrites how we should perceive our forebears.
Learn about Stonehenge's recent history
The book presents not just a theory about Stonehenge, but awakens the dead science of archaeology.
“I can’t say that I’m a Stonehenge fanatic, but I throughly enjoyed this book.”
Like a rolling stone the book rumbles over some absurd Stonehenge myths
How about wraping the stones in wood then rolling them? Ewbank isn’t convinced that’s a great idea.
“I’ve read a number of Stonehenge books and this is the most engaging and plausible by far.”
See how it all fits together
Ewbank’s scale model shows the majesty of what a Stonehenge structure might look like
More enjoyment, more understanding with more images
Not content on merely presenting words on paper, each of Ewbank’s points is illustrated with wonderful pictures. It lets you see what she means.
“I thought your Stonehenge book was
brilliant. The idea of the roof is entirely feasible and I think you did
a wonderful job describing how the henge may have been built, stones
transported and dropped into the holes and also possible explanation for
the Aubrey holes etc. Great sketches and diagrams.”
The idea of men hauling hard is done away in Ewbank’s book. A herd of strong oxen does what hundreds of men would fail to do.
Find out the hidden secret in Stonehenge's design
Ewbank’s design expertise has enabled her to extract information from the Stonehenge plan never before revealed.
Careful measurements show the entire site was constructed and laid out using a single consistent unit of measurement, which Ewbank calls the BAUNT (Bronze Age unit)
Her work gives more credence to the idea that our ancestors were far more advanced than they are portrayed.
Never a dull moment does Sarah Ewbank live – with her partner Crispin Scott. Sheep need to be tended, wandering chickens watched, and the counterposed cats – one lively and rambunctious the other febrile and nervous – need to be fed, stroked and loved. With all the animals, their life in the quiet repose of the Cotswolds, is anything but.
However, Stonehenge – Temple Cipher Roof, didn’t erupt solely from this rural life. It came from the imposing presence of nuclear power and the regal majesty of the Oxford colleges. The book emerged from the hidden complexities of design that have been revealed to Sarah Ewbank, through her forty years of varied work.
Hidden in those years, are knowledge gained not just in design, but also in self-build construction, and experimentation. Practical experience has provided Sarah Ewbank with the hands-on knowledge required to unravel the mystery of Stonehenge. She is a woman who has taken up all tasks: from plumbing in a two story extension; repairing heating systems, to dry stone walling and fabricating mobile chicken sheds.
Stonehenge – Temple Cipher Roof is the elucidation of an ancient tale, enabled by Sarah Ewbank’s singular knowledge of patterns, and construction, gained through forty years of hard earned experience.
