Reconstruction of theWest Kennett Long Barrow 28-06-2007 formation | |||||

1. |
Draw a circle. Draw and extend the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

2. |
Copy circle 1 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. Move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection. | ||||

3. |
Repeat step 2 two more times, with respect to the newly copied circles. | ||||

4. |
Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the lefthand in stead of the righthand intersections. This makes seven tangent circles on a row, as shown. | ||||

5. |
Construct the "circumscribed" circle of the seven circles 1, 2, 3 and 4. That means, concentric to circle 1, tangent to the rightmost circle 3 at the righthand side. | ||||

6. |
Construct the circumscribed square of circle 5, sides horizontally and vertically. | ||||

7. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of square 6. | ||||

8. |
Construct the circumscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 7, pointing to the right. | ||||

9. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of dodecagon 8. | ||||

10. |
Copy circles 1, 2, 3 and 4 as a whole, with the center of circle 1 as a reference, to the lower intersection of circle 5 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

11. |
Draw the two diagonals of square 6. | ||||

12. |
Construct the circumscribed decagon (regular 10-sided polygon) of circle 5, pointing to the right. | ||||

13. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of decagon 12. | ||||

14. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 13, sides horizontally and vertically. | ||||

15. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 14. The following steps 16 through 27 are an iterative repetition of steps 12, 13, 14 and 15 (therefore with few comments). | ||||

28. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 27, sides horizontally and vertically. The following steps 29 through 32 are an iterative repetition of steps 27 and 28. | ||||

29. |

30. |

33. |
Extend the lower side of square 18 in both directions, up to square 14. | ||||

34. |
Extend the lower side of square 26 in both directions, up to square 22. | ||||

35. |
Extend the lower side of square 30 in both directions, up to square 28. | ||||

36. |
Extend the upper side of square 22 in both directions, up to square 14. | ||||

37. |
Extend the upper side of square 26 in both directions, up to square 14. | ||||

38. |
Draw two lines, from the intersections of square 14 and lines 36 to the adjacent intersections of square 18 and lines 37, as shown. | ||||

39. |
Extend the upper side of square 28 in both directions, up to square 22. | ||||

40. |
Extend the upper side of square 30 in both directions, up to square 22. | ||||

41. |
Draw two lines, from the intersections of square 22 and lines 39 to the adjacent intersections of square 26 and lines 40, as shown. | ||||

42. |
Extend the upper side of square 32 in both directions, up to square 28. | ||||

43. |
Draw two connecting lines, between the center of the diagram (center of circle 1) and the intersections of square 28 and lines 42, as shown. | ||||

44. |
Draw the connecting line between the intersections of square 30 and lines 43. Extend this line in both directions, up to square 28. | ||||

45. |
Draw six connecting lines, between the center of the diagram (center of circle 1) and the six mutual tangent points in between circles 10, as shown. | ||||

46. |
Only circle 9, squares 6, 14, 18, 22, 26, 28, 30 and 32, and lines 11 and 33 through 45, will be used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
