Dear Dr. Edlin,

I wish to make a simple point. U must have heard of the news on the discovery by archaeologists in Scotland (or wherever in UK) of the megalithic yard (right spelling?) developed 1000 years earlier than the building of the pyramids in Egypt. Apparently, these archaeologists are claiming that the egyptians, having once traveled through Europe 'marveled' at this magnificent innovation for measuring and then used it to build their pyramids.

This has been published on the news, but what do u think of this claim? My understanding is that it is foolhardy to make such linkages between wholly different areas based upon 'evidence' that these was seen by some ancient egyptians who then took the technology to build the pyramids.
