Abstract:
The authors, who represent the 'rope and pegs' side in the debate on the mathematical sophistication required for constructing megalithic rings, offer a simple objective algorithm for obtaining ellipse and circle fits for any given site, which may then be used in a statistical study of site metrology. Further, the dangers of accepting a fit composed of a number of circular arcs for a particular site are demonstrated by comparing Thom's results for Avebury with those produced by the new method.
