I spent a few hours this afternoon revisiting my Google Earth placemark of the Glasgow Network of Aligned Sites. When I originally started plotting Harry Bell’s sites I had a lot of difficulty due to the low resolution photo coverage in Google Earth at the time. This resulted in a degree of confusion, particularly in the Castlemilk and Carmunnock areas, where sites were misplaced and a couple of alignments omitted completely as I just couldn’t pin things down accurately enough. However, the photographic coverage has improved immensely in the last year or two, and so I managed to resolve my difficulties and have now finished mapping out the entire network:
In the process I’ve also updated a lot of links, including the one to the GNAS home page, which has moved web hosts once again. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to include the extra pages relating to Harry’s older work Forgotten Footsteps, for which I also produced a Google Earth placemark file. I’ve moved that to a separate post to make the maps less of a strain to load in a single page.
I did find some of those pages in an Internet Archive, but I hope they don’t get lost completely as there is some valuable information to be found in them.
