The Megalith Movers Prehistoric Engineering
Blog 15th October 2016    Hi all,    It's now almost a month since my last blog and during the last couple of weeks we have been testing various ideas on how we can use levers in a pulling action as outlined in my previous blog. Below are a few photos that may explain things better.    For these initial tests we used a timber crib, so that it was easily adjustable for different settings. Having established the optimum shape of staircase we needed, we then settled on solid stone or concrete as the best material. This will resist any tendency that the timber crib had to compress during use. This compression was robbing us of most of the lift from the levers.    It will probably take a couple of weeks to get everything ready, but as soon as we make some progress in moving the obelisk I will be sure to let you know.      Best regards to all,    Gordon. << previous blog page next blog page >> To read & post comments click here return to top of this page
