Washington DC, the First Surprise
We began to look carefully at Washington, using the powerful attributes of Google Earth and within minutes we found something just north of the city that looked surprisingly like a British henge. Of course it couldn't be one but nevertheless it became obvious that it had been created using Megalithic measures. This structure was Washington DC's Naval observatory, built in 1842. This was particularly apt because by now we were sure that the ancient British henges had also been astronomical observatories. But we told ourselves that the Washington DC Naval observatory must have Megalithic dimensions by sheer chance.
The Heart of the City
Once we began to look at the heart of Washington DC, our discoveries came thick and fast. What we found, within a matter of days, was something that shocked us then and which still stuns us today. The whole of the central structure of Washington DC revolves around a ground plan that was devised with the Megalithic Yard in mind. Further to this, the city was also planned using the geometric unit that is the Megalithic second of arc. In other words, distances between specific and very important landmarks in Washington DC can be divided into units of 366 Megalithic Yards, which is also one second of arc of the Earth's polar circumference.
There are so many instances in which this is the case that we cannot be looking at a random chance event. But don't forget, as far as we knew this ancient unit of measurement and the geometry of which it is a part had not been known for at least four thousand years! Yet here it was at the heart of a relatively modern city.
We kept looking and were intrigued to notice that most of the measurements, though not all of them, emanate from a specific point in Washington DC's centre. This is not, as might be expected, the White House or the Capital. Rather it is a park, just south of the White House - a park that was created just after the American Civil War but which must have been planned far earlier than that. Now called 'President's Park' this area was originally known as 'Ellipse Park'.
