For one brief moment in the third millennium BCE the galaxy levelled around the horizon, bringing into view stars that would not be visible again in the northern hemisphere for twenty thousand years. The spectacular Southern Cross dominated the night sky, and it is the contention of this book that this event was marked by the Neolithic people of Britain by monuments such as Avebury. Avebury Henge marries archaeology with astronomy to show that the people who built Avebury, West Kennet long barrow and Silbury Hill aligned them not only with the cycles of the sun, moon and planets, but also with the stars.
