Winter Solstice event at the Newport Tower
This year on the winter solstice, December 21, the sun rises at 7:25 AM.
From around 7:45 to 8:00, the sun, rising in the east, shines through the south window, through the tower, through the west window, and is observed from the northwest corner of the park.
An hour later, from 9:00 to 9:15, the rectangular beam of sunlight coming through the south window illuminates the egg-shaped rock near the center of the northwest arch on the interior of the tower.
All this is assuming there are no clouds on the eastern horizon. As the word "solstice" actually means " stand-still," and these illuminations can be witnessed for a few days before and a few days after the actual day of the solstice.
The best bet is to check the weather as the solstice approaches. The day when a perfectly sunny morning is predicted is the best day to show up. And be sure to bundle up, as it's nippy at dawn. It's never safe to look at the sun directly, or with a 35mm film camera, which has internal mirrors. However, it is safe to look at the image of the sun on your digital camera, or at its image projected on the ground.
Last year 75 people showed up for the Sunrise Solstice at the Tower event in Touro Park. And the more, the merrier.
Witness for yourself how the tower celebrates the turning point in the annual dance between the earth and the sun. After December 21, days start getting longer.
That’s enough reason to celebrate!

not map information but maybe this will help why the group is where it is.....we don't believe the existing fictional story AND its all with the "tools" used....explain the tool marks ---- then we talk.....

is there more coming..oh yeah, there is. its ready, set, and go. done your homework. GREAT we are off and running - BUT FIRST - a little youtube..enjoy. --- History is NOT what you have been taught.....enjoy --

you know the nice thing about geometry and mathematics is it can be "remeasured" and have an "analysis" done. in fact, Historum members can EVEN go out and measure all the things that have been done and published. Henry Lincoln is one of those people you can measure. Enjoy but not required viewing but then, this is all on you.

fellow posters -- your going to love this one --- that's right folks --- ANGLO_SAXON/GERMANIC. Damn, you talk about totally botched research by the "academics"..........(BOOM)

now who would have been using Anglo_Saxon runes in North America after Columbus.....we are taking guesses below....just enter the names, dates, and since this is "known" history period in the N.A. continent, we would also need the name of the ship and the sponsor with the point of departure.....just saying

The inscription on this North American rune stone used Anglo-Saxon/Germanic runes (futhorc).
In 2014, a Swedish runologist posited that the inscription was constructed using the character forms (glyphs) of the Younger Futhark runes. This erroneous assertion has not received support from any other runic scholar.
The NRS has several unique rune forms, notably the yew-rune, the star rune, and the -GN bind-rune.
The first two of the aforementioned runes have been discussed by various scholars. The discussion centered on the star rune is very interesting.
Dr. Gaby Waxenberger has authored several scholarly works in this regard: (…/ru…/projektmitglieder/gaby-waxenberger/)
-“The Intriguing Inscriptions of the Gandersheim Runic Casket Revisited”…
-“The Yew-Rune and the Runes ¥, G, H and I in the Old English Corpus (Epigraphical Material)”…
Take note of the extensive discussion of the star rune in both works.

An interesting video of a fortification constructed in the Holy Lands during the Crusades by the Knights Hospitaller. At the 1:26 mark of the video a panning shot captures a significant Egg-shaped rock above the center of the arch.

Happy New Year, fellow posters. Of course, we will be posting all kinds of information on the Newport Tower (NT) and the Kensington Stone (KS) and a few (many) of other things. I made a resolution to make an effort to stop trashing academic researchers who don't get out of their offices...(notice I didn't use the word "lazy" - not much but a good start), anyway, speaking of doing what archaeologists are supposed to be doing but aren't...(notice the lack of adjectives)...;)

I like ducks, they're fun to watch...and, yes, the archaeologists found stuff they weren't supposed to find and in retaliation, they weren't paid. Reading between the lines tells me - "if you work for us, you will find what we tell you to find.....end of research". :winktongue::freeze:

This Templar-constructed round church very likely had a chancel on its eastern aspect. Furthermore, the smaller, squarish section immediately to the south of the chancel, it was a TREASURY. How great that the archaeologists in England ACTUALLY excavate.

Archaeologists excavating…here in America? Not at the Newport Tower. Certainly not after the Chronognostic Foundation stiffed paying the last round of for-hire, professional archaeologists last decade.
Has anyone even HEARD of any potential archaeology excavations even being mentioned for the Newport Tower? Perhaps under the sidewalks to find the remaining post-hole mold formations in the ambulatory area. Two have already been found during an emergency excavation. What about on the eastern aspect of the tower, on the outside of the ambulatory diameter, where a clear rectangular outline presents on the aerial photos from 1939 all the way up to just a few years ago (using Google Earth photos).
That eastern aspect area is the same location that two Ground Penetrating Radar studies strongly suggested the presence of the remnants of a man-made structure – right in the chancel and treasury area (of London’s Temple Church).

Have fun reading this 1953 published report on London’s Temple Church, the one that discussed the high probability of the rectangular chancel and then the treasury:…

Then download either of these files and have a look at the outlines in the area adjacent to the Newport Tower:

-PowerPoint File:…

Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, has the outlines of a duck, comes back as a duck when the MRI/GPR is done, has two post hole molds formations where the duck’s ambulatory was, and ducks lay EGGS…but it can’t be a duck!
Ducks don’t like their grain gristed and, by God, Benedict Arnold built a grist mill!!

This paper was a recent addition to the Academia dot edu site. British researcher Jeff Nisbet has been studying Rosslyn Chapel for over two decades. He has adduced several interesting relationships in the architectural design of the structure, one being that the 23.5° angle of the Earth's axial tilt has a prominent role in the geometry of the pillars and another being that the longitude separation between Rosslyn and Westford, MA appears to have been encoded in the ceiling carvings.

How's that for a bit of irony?

Mr. Nisbet wrote at the conclusion of his work:
“In this paper, I have simply shown the mathematics that William Sinclair of Rosslyn designed into his ceiling, and presented what I hope are plausible connections between those mathematics and what has been speculated from long-derided yet enduring legends. It is clear, though, that the numbers and geometrical angles in the ceiling actually exist, and that they tend to strongly support the so-far unsourced legends that have been the subject of so much enmity. It is also clear that my observations and conclusions, most which have been published in this paper for the first time, postdate the arguments against those legends, and so may raise the plausibility level of the speculative side of future debates.”

“It matters little, in my opinion, that no one has yet found the happy paper trail of written source documents proving any of the Rosslyn legends to the satisfaction of those who, when it suits them, have trouble accepting the idea that where there’s some legendary smoke, there’s likely some historically accurate fire.”

“In the final analysis, though, the 15th-century carvings at Rosslyn are perhaps themselves those long-sought documents, carved in stone against the inevitable ravages of time and energetic protests of the narrowed mind.”
