Dr Trogolodyte writes “The Causeway and boat pit/grave share parallel alignment with a specific sunrise date:”

It must have been a very important sunrise to have had such an influence if that was indeed the reason…where the route leading up to the great monument must be at such a particular angle rather than directly east. If I understand correctly from your diagram, it’s given as April 18th. Is that significant? I have probably missed something or misunderstood.
For the moment, that doesn’t appear to rule out an earthly reason for the boat pit and causeway orientation. So my question – which is very different – remains in play. Has anyone checked to see where that orientation might place the origin of the ship….if it arrived across ground from the east!
As for the chicken and the egg, far be it from me to suggest that the boat pits preceded the monument along the perimeter of which two of them lie. That would be ridiculous. But the question of age is not really important here. Whichever came first, the causeway and the third boatpit share an orientation that might or might not be of importance for reasons other than practicalities. I'm curious about the ship. The causeway can come along for the ride.
