Denke's Stonehenge Snow Fence was a structure used to force drifting of snow to occur in a predictable place on Salisbury Plain, rather than in a more natural method. Denke's Stonehenge Snow Fence was employed to minimize the amount of snowdrift over Stonehenge fields. Ancient farmers and ranchers used Denke's Stonehenge Snow Fence to create large drifts for a ready supply of water in the spring.

Denke's Stonehenge Snow Fence was constructed of large Oak Wooden Poles set deeply into the ground with large Oak Wooden Planks running vertically across them. The drifting of snow behind Denke's Stonehenge Snow Fence followed the laws of physics as the pressure on the downwind side was less than that on the windward side, which allowed the light material snow (and Luau leaves) to settle there.

20ft British Petroleum Snow Fence Confirmed

20ft British Petroleum Snow Fence Confirmed

Archaeologists have uncovered the remains of what they believe to be a 20ft fence designed to screen Stonehenge from the view of unworthy Stone Age Britons.

Image

The dig's co-director Dr Josh Pollard, of Bristol University, said: "The construction must have taken a lot of manpower. The palisade is an open structure which would not have been defensive and was too high to be practical for controlling livestock. It certainly wasn’t for hunting herded animals and so, like everything else in this ceremonial landscape, we have to believe it must have had a religious significance. The most plausible explanation is that it was built at huge cost to the community to screen the environs of Stonehenge from view. Basically, we think it was to keep the lower classes from seeing what exactly their rulers and the priestly class were doing."

Image

Mike Pitts, editor of British Archaeology Magazine and author of the book Hengeworld, said: "This is a fantastic insight into what the landscape would have looked like. This huge wooden palisade would have snaked across the landscape, blotting out views to Stonehenge from one side. The other side was the ceremonial route to the Henge from the River Avon and would have been shielded by the contours. The palisade would have heightened the mystery of whatever ceremonies were performed and it would have endowed those who were privy to those secrets with more power and prestige. In modern terms, you had to be invited or have a ticket to get in."

Cursus Snow Fences

Postby Garry Denke » Wed Sep 10, 2008 7:25 pm

Cursus Snow Fences

I cannot even turn a computer on. But dentist Doctor Garry Whilhelm Denke (1622-1699), the historian and antiquarian of late prehistoric British Isles coal exploration, has only one theory in his German Diary embracing Cursus Palisades (Cursus Snow Fences; such as Rudston Cursus Snow Fences in Yorkshire, the Fornham All Saints Curses Snow Fence in Suffolk, the Cleaven Dyke Cursus Snow Fence in Perthshire, the Dorset Cursus Snow Fences in Dorsetshire, and the Great Cursus Snow Fence in Wiltshire. Each first parallel ditch of Cursus Palisades (Cursus Snow Fences) was a coal exploration, and each second parallel ditch of Cursus Palisades (Cursus Snow Fences) completed a snow fence construction.

According to Dr. Garry Whilhelm Denke's German Diary, as translated by Mammy Tree Harry (scholar), the older stone Cursus Snow Fences (dating from around 3800 BC) and the newer wood Stonehenge Palisade (dating from around 3000 BC) i.e, Denke's Stonehenge Snow Fence, are not mysterious British Isles earthworks of the Neolithic landscape. After their initial coal exploration purpose, they (snow fences) were invented by Salisbury Plain farmers and ranchers attempting to survive in a harsh climate. 5,000-year-old Stonehenge Superbowl wintertime snow drifts were practically eliminated by Stonehenge Snow Fence, which doubled in summertime as the adjacent Stonehenge Baseball Park's outfield fence.

So, as you can see, there is one non-religious theory. Unfortunately, both Michaels (Pitts and Pearson) claim that no agricultural (farming and ranching) production of goods through the growing of plants and the raising of domesticated animals occurred on Salisbury Plain during the Neolithic. According to them (and other British archaeologists), there was absolutely no need for any agriculture, thus British Isles snow fences are ruled out. Cultivation of crops on Salisbury Plain arable land, and pastoral herding of livestock on Salisbury Plain rangeland, simply did not occur during the Stone Age they say. No, "like everything else in this ceremonial landscape, we have to believe it must have had a religious significance".

Stonehenge Cursus Snow Fences

Dr Garry Denke's core samples of Stonehenge Palisade Snow Fence postholes nearest Heelstone Ditch dated the first Neolithic snow fence (~3000 BC). The wooden Neolithic palisade (Oak) snow fence posts and rails were replaced several times, up to the Late Bronze Age / Early Iron Age.

Wood fence posts and rails rotted rather quickly, considering they were buried in Stonehenge snowmelt. Fortunately, stone type Cursus Snow Fences were made of more durable rocks. Stonehenge Palisade Snow Fence was taller because large livestock populations required Spring water.

Prof Mike Parker Pearson (Univeristy of Sheffield), Prof Julian Thomas (University of Manchester), Dr Joshua Pollard University of Bristol), Dr Colin Richards (University of Manchester), Chris Tilley (University College London), and Dr Kate Welham (Bournemouth University), claim otherwise.

Interesting enough it still snows at Stonehenge:
however; not as much as it did 5,000 years ago

We'll never know how Wood and Stone got to Snow Henge.

Never. Not ever. Never ever.

Stone Age Weather Maps

Postby Garry Denke » Fri Sep 19, 2008 1:11 pm

Stone Age Weather Maps

Assuming that ancient meteorologists oriented Stonehenge / Cursus snow fences of the British Isles and their long side dugouts ideally, Stone Age snow fence orientations are perpendicular to the prevailing cold front / arctic wind directions at each locality. The prevailing wind directions before the construction of Stonehenge / Cursus snow fences, determined by ancient meteorologists observing the orientations of Stone Age snow drifts along natural local obstructions, is predicted.

Image

Studies have shown that a snow fence is no less effective if the wind direction deviates up to 25 degrees from the perpendicular to the snow fence. Given the quantity of Stonehenge / Cursus snow fences in the British Isles, perhaps meteorologists could predict Stone Age weather? Maybe even build some Stone Age Weather Maps? Note: In ~500 year period Stonehenge / Cursus cold front / arctic wind directions changed. The snow fences' azimuths are not exactly parallel.

Coralling Snow

Postby Garry Denke » Sat Sep 20, 2008 9:20 am

Coralling Snow

Some benefits of coralling snow:

1) Water for agriculture (farming and ranching).
2) Snowmelt saved trips for river drinking water.
3) Deep snow travel between villages eliminated.

The frequency of cursus snow fences increases northward as expected,
more than fifty (50) Scotland cursus snow fences have been identified:

A GCM Simulation of the Climate 6000 Years Ago
Nicholas M. J. Hall and Paul J. Valdes
Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, Reading, United Kingdom

ABSTRACT
Two 10-yr integrations of the UGAMP GCM are presented. Each has a full seasonal cycle, T42 resolution, interactive land and sea ice, and prescribed sea surface temperatures. They differ in that one integration represents present day climate (PD) and the other has a perturbed orbit and reduced atmospheric concentrations of CO2 appropriate to the climate of 6000 years ago (6 kyr, hereafter 6k). The 6k integration produces enhanced continental warmth during summer and cold during winter. Changes in atmospheric temperature gradients brought about by the surface response lead to altered jet stream structures and transient eddy activity, which in turn affect precipitation patterns. Tropical “monsoon”-type circulation patterns are also affected, also leading to altered precipitation. Many of the changes in hydrology mimic the geological record remarkably well: the Sahel is much wetter, as are the midwestern United States and the Mediterranean regions; California and northern Europe are drier. Processes leading to the model’s surface responses in both temperature and hydrology are described in detail. Finally, the sensitivity of the results to an alternative, objective definition of the 6k calendar is investigated. This sensitivity is found to be smaller than the overall signal to the extent that the principal conclusions are not altered.
