"The hermetic tradition claims 'As above, so below'. Did the ancients mean that literally? Stars, Stones and Scholars shows that many ancient megalithic sites are not tombs, but are remnants of ancient local, regional and perhaps even larger Neolithic surveys of the Earth by Stone Age astronomy, with gigantic stones being placed as immovable survey markers. Circa 40 photographs, 240 drawings and 80 maps show how megaliths were carved and 'sculpted' with figures and cupmarks (holes in the stones) to represent stars and constellations, long before the modern astrological Zodiac was known. Megalithic sites from England (Stonehenge), Wales (Paviland), Scotland (Clava Cairns), Ireland (Newgrange, Knowth), Germany (Externsteine), Benelux (Weris), France (Carnac), Italy (La Spezia), Malta (Tarxien), Greece, Turkey (Anatolia), Scandinavia (Tanum), the Baltic, Russia, the Near East, the Far East (China and Japan), Africa, Central and South America (Tikal, Maya, Aztecs), Oceania (Hawaii), The USA (Cahokia, Miami Circle, Clovis) and Canada (Peterborough Petroglyphs) are included in this fascinating book."

The primary hypothesis of Stars Stones and Scholars is that the megaliths represent ancient surveys of the earth by astronomy, and that these feats of ancient surveying and of ancient surveyors can be reconstructed. The megaliths were, so to speak, ancient border stones, sighted by astronomy.

Additionally, the book Stars Stones and Scholars shows that megaliths and megalithic sites are also fabulous works of ancient art, which greatly expand our understanding of so-called prehistoric art and human civilization. Speaking of civilization, there is an affiliated list related to the megalithic subjects of this book and related topics at History of Civilization.
