Reconstruction of theYarnbury Castle 28-04-2012 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the circumscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, with the midpoint of one side on the horizontal centerline. | ||||

3. |
Draw the diagonal of dodecagon 2 between the two angular points just above the horizontal centerline. | ||||

4. |
Construct the inscribed dodecagon of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle, centered at the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline, passing through the intersection of line 3 and the righthand side of dodecagon 4 just above the horizontal centerline. | ||||

6. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of dodecagon 2. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, tangent to circle 6 at the righthand side. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 7 to the righthand intersection of circle 5 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 8 at the lefthand side. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 7 to the lefthand intersection of circle 8 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, tangent to circle 10 at the lefthand side. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 five times, the first to its lefthand intersection with the horizontal centerline, the others to their successive corresponding intersections, as shown. | ||||

13. |
Construct five circles concentric to circle 5, tangent to circles 12 at the lefthand sides. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 5 five times, to the centers of circles 12. | ||||

15. |
Construct five circles concentric to circle 5, tangent to circles 14 at the lefthand sides. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 9 to the lower intersection of circle 1 and the largest circle 13. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 16, tangent to circle 7 at the upper righthand side. | ||||

18. |
Circles 1, 5, 9, 11, 13, 15, 16 and 17, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

19. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

20. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

21. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Yarnbury Castle formation of 28-04-2012. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
