Reconstruction of the
Avebury Down 28-09-2008 formation

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

2. Construct the circumscribed square of circle 1, sides horizontal and vertical.

3. Construct the circumscribed circle of square 2.

4. Construct the circumscribed square of circle 3, sides horizontal and vertical.

5. Construct the circumscribed circle of square 4.

6. Construct the circumscribed square of circle 5, sides horizontal and vertical.

7. Construct the circumscribed circle of square 6.

8. Copy circle 7 to the righthand intersection of circle 5 and the horizontal centerline. Move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection.

9. Copy circle 3 to the righthand intersection of circle 8 and the horizontal centerline. Move this circle to its own corresponding intersection.

10. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 9.

11. Copy circle 3 two times, to the upper and lefthand intersections of circle 10 with the horizontal and vertical centerlines.

12. Copy circle 10 to its own lower intersection with the vertical centerline.

13. Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circles 10 and 12.

14. Copy circle 5 to the intersection of line 13 and the vertical centerline.

15. Copy circles 5 and 14 as a whole two times, from the center of circle 5 to the lower intersections of circles 10 and 12 with the vertical centerline.

16. Construct a circle concentric to circle 9, passing through the center of circle 8.

17. Copy circle 16 two times, to the centers of circles 11.

18. Copy circle 1 six times, to the intersections of circles 16 and 17 with the horizontal and vertical centerlines.

19. Construct a circle concentric to circle 9, tangent to circle 12 at the upper righthand side.

20. Copy circle 19 two times, to the centers of circles 11.

21. Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 10 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 10 at the opposite side.

22. Copy circle 21 two times, to the lefthand intersection of circle 10 and the horizontal centerline, and to the lower intersection of circle 10 and the vertical centerline.

23. Copy circle 1 six times, to the intersections of circles 19 and 20 with circles 21 and 22.

24. Draw two lines, one between the centers of the uppermost circle 18 and the lowermost circle 15, the other between the centers of the leftmost and rightmost circles 18.

25. Circles 5, 9, 11, 14, 15, 18, 21, 22 and 23, and lines 24, are used for the final reconstruction.

26. Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself.
