Brittany in West France has a remarkable number of megalithic monuments but in the South an area of great concentration near the town of Carnac. Analysis of these contributed greatly to Sacred Number and the Lords of Time as demonstrating numerical counting of days within monuments which, combined with multiple square geometries, indicates an advanced megalithic science there in the fifth millennium BC. Day inch counting would have enabled the harmonic structure of synodic time to have been discovered just as the neolithic civilisations of the fourth millennium arose, especially in the ancient near east.

Figure 1 The entrance of Crucuno's cromlech, which opens to the south-east [Summer Solstice, 2007]
It is not immediately obvious that the Crucuno dolmen (figure 1) faces the Crucuno rectangle about 1100 feet to the east. Dolmens appear to have been used to mark the beginning significant time counts. At Carnac's Alignments there are large cromlechs initiating and terminating the stone rows which, more explicitly, appear like counts. The only (surviving) intermediate stone lies 216 feet from the dolmen, within a garden and hard-up to another building, as with the dolmen (see figure 2). This length is interesting since it is twice the longest inner dimension of the Crucuno rectangle, implying that lessons learned in interpreting the rectangle might usefully apply when interpreting the distance at which this outlier was placed from the dolmen. Most obviously, the rectangle is 4 x 27 feet wide and so the outlier is 8 x 27 feet from the dolmen.

Momentarily at least, one can consider the two lengths of (210-) 216 feet relating to 108 feet of the rectangle and I believe dolmen to centre of rectangle to be about 1105 feet. The combined monument is then as figure 3.
