There is a very large gap in the historical records regarding the metrology of ancient Britain, and England in particular. That the Romans came, imposed their standards and left is totally recorded and dealt with at length in hundreds of scientific or archaeological papers. That the ancient Britons built quite fantastic monuments of wood or stone is also totally recorded. What is missing from the record however is how ancient man controlled the construction of those monuments, the measures utilized to plan and then produce wooden beams and shaped stones to fit quite precisely into position? Even when archaeologists and historians have the evidence in front of them it is often ignored because of a lack of metrological training. This paper seeks to redress the balance and explore the possibility of a coherent megalithic metrology.
