Dodwell Manuscript Ancient, mediaeval, and modern observations of the obliquity of the Ecliptic, measuring the inclination of the earth's axis, in ancient times and up to the present by George F. Dodwell B.A., FRAS* *B.A. is Bachelor of Arts -- his degree was in mathematics (which was an art then).

They are set off in parentheses, with the understanding that we are not sure if these are his explanations or those of the author whom he is quoting. There may be a mix. Reference has been made to the famous astronomical monuments of ancient times, which throw light on the changed position of the earth’s axis, namely (1) the great Solar Temple of Amen Ra at Karnak, Egypt; (2) the Stonehenge monument on the Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire, England, where the giant Stone Circle of trilithons was used for calendar purposes, among other things, by observing the point of sunrise at its farthest north-easterly position at, and about, the time of the summer solstice. In ancient times Egypt was pre-eminently a centre of Sun-worship. Strabo says that “their astronomical documents, or registers of observations, made during long centuries, have remained celebrated.”
