Topic: THE NEWGRANGE SIRIUS MYSTERY: Linking Passage Grave Cosmology with Dogon Symbology.
About this Episode: E.A. James Swagger V trained as a systems analyst in the energy industry. He has a Masters degree in engineering, a Bachelors degree in physics with astronomy, and a Masters degree in Science, Research and Society. James explored megalithic monuments of Western Europe in the UK, Ireland, and Denmark. His diverse educational background gave him the capacity to utilize a multidisciplinary approach researching megalithic sites, and his research led to the writing of his book: THE NEWGRANGE SIRIUS MYSTERY: Linking Passage Grave Cosmology with Dogon Symbology "Newgrange is considered the most complex megalithic site in the world. It is Ireland's most visited monument with around 250,000 visitor's a year. This book delves into the astro-archaeology of Newgrange and the Boyne valley alongside the Loughcrew and Carrowkeel cemeteries with astonishing revelations. This book contains new research and evidence that suggests Newgrange was aligned also to Sirius as a crude precessional calculator. Newgrange it seems was the pinnacle of a theme of passage grave cosmology running throughout Ireland. Knowledge of Precession of the Equinoxes is inherent in the passage graves of Ireland a fact that has never been explained nor addressed until now."
