A fantastic, broadening and informative 2 day course with Robin learning the ways the sun and moon move in the sky.
Participants will use simple geometrical shapes to simulate orbital and other astronomical time periods. They will work with models and plans of well-known local megalithic sites to discover that these same geometrical shapes and ratios are embedded within their design. There really is so much to do in this weekend including building diagrams to predict the phase and astronomical position of the moon, examining designs of surviving stone circles in order to make a working calendar of the sun and moon and to predict eclipses, suggestions for making garden sized model calendars and constructing a stone circle to take home after the workshop.
Suitable for adults and children aged 12 + if accompanied by an adult. Enthusiasm is most definitely more important than previous knowledge.
