Lecture 2: Keeping on the Old Straight Track Applying John Michell's legacy to new research. The John Michell Memorial Lecture, Hosted by Christine Rhone.
John's books and lectures reintroduced two generations or so to a global prehistoric science whose traces were still visible because they had survived into later Babylonian, Egyptian, Minoan, Greek and Roman times. Although the scientific establishment remains to be convinced of it, this 'megalithic science' (which John sometimes referred to as 'spiritual engineering') remains recogniseable to modern thought. In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the ancient sciences when correctly understood and then applied, Robin will revisit some of John's favourite haunts, and pull a few new rabbits out of the hat.
Robin Heath is a graduate of UCNW, Bangor, and started his career as a research and development engineer in semiconductor technology prior to becoming a senior lecturer in mathematics and engineering. Since 1990 Robin has been seeking out evidence for the prehistoric science embedded within the surviving megalithic monuments in Britain, Ireland and France. In 1993 Robin founded Megalithic Tours and has written eleven books revealing evidence of high culture to be found in the astronomy, geometry and metrology of ancient monuments. This material has been presented in various ways to students at the Prince's School of Traditional Arts, The Sophia Trust, John Ruskin College, Brasenose College, Oxford, the British Society of Dowsing, The Gatekeeper Trust, RILKO (Research into Lost Knowledge Organisation), and the Royal Institute of Mathematics. He spoke at the first ever Megalithomania in 2006, and also in 2012.
