Gary Nobles Abstract


This study tries to combine GIS and phenomenological techniques from a hermeneutic
perspective; it attempts to quantify a perception of circularity of the horizon around these
Recumbent Stone Circles. It outlines and implements various methodologies to achieve
this. It examines the basics of vision returning to the physics and psychology of sight as
well as the role of the mind and how this affects our perception of the world in which we
act and react. It highlights the main areas of research in relation to horizons, these most
notably contained within astronomical archaeology.
