The Megalith Movers Prehistoric Engineering
Blog 9th May 2015    Last week it was Ewan and myself working together to elevate the prone Obelisk high enough to move it over the plinth. For most of this week it has been Sean and myself. Steve and Ewan have both been unavailable, but despite the limited workforce we are making steady progress.    At the stern we are now gaining around 2 inches per lift and at the bow around 3 inches. Again we have been working in the full glare of the hot sun, with the temperature about 35 degrees C, and  high humidity. We are both taking plenty of water on board, but at my age I have to rest frequently, so Sean who is 20 odd years younger has been doing all the heavy work. Nonetheless, with every day that passes we get nearer and nearer our target of 34 inches above ground level.    By close of play Friday, we were only about 8 inches short of our objective at the stern, and perhaps a little more at the bow. We had further refined our technique so that we were now swinging the stern to port, a couple of inches with every 2 inch lift. Below are a some pics showing our progress over the last few weeks:   Unfortunately the pics available have not kept up with the progress we have made to date, but I will update them in the next blog. <<previous blog page next blog page >> To read & post comments click here return to top of this page
