A TWIST IN TIME is a highly-original new book examining the history of cordage-crafts around the world. Surviving in wild and unpredictable outdoor environments people developed advanced rope-making procedures and an increasing awareness of measure, geometry, space, mass, weight, leverage, angle, ratio and proportion. With this knowledge, rope-masters conceptualised, designed and built vast stone super-structures and monuments and A Twist in Time explains how they did it using ropes, posts and smart thinking.
Journeying beyond the immense stones which pepper our ancient landscapes, the underlying designs and measurements of the lost rope-masters are examined - finally answering how these enigmatic structures were planned and built. Challenging perceptions of the Stone Age, after reading this book you might be inclined to agree that prehistoric people had a one night stand with stone and a long and happy marriage with rope, and that the term Stone Age should be overthrown and renamed the Rope Age.
