I am a retired carpenter who, having a fascination with both the source of the flood tales i.e. the Biblical Flood and Atlantis, and the source of the British Imperial system of measures, began research into the subjects way back in the early 1980s. Given the time involved for research it is clear that these works are not the quickly garnered assembly of frequently dissociated bits and pieces that occasionally have been termed history in recent decades. These are serious works that at long last reveal just what these mythical tales have in common and the commonality is far from that which most would expect. The final results of the research are found in the two works Deluge and Measurements of the Gods under the generic title of Megalith, Masonry, Myth and Measure.
These works have been examined by a number of editors of major British publishing houses but unfortunately the timing was wrong and while a number of these people actually praised the works, it seems that this element of history, in fact history in general, is currently not very fashionable with publishers. As my literary agent stated, it’s a pity but we can’t buck the market. So here we are on the web.
