Part of Gordon R Freeman Fonds
The accession consists of non-chemistry research conducted by Gordon r Freeman on a stone structure near Majorville located in South Eastern Alberta. There, Freeman discovered stones arranged by humans. One significant stone structure was identified as a widespread "Temple to the Sun, Moon and Morningstar". During the period 1980-2014, Freeman took many photos (2,000) of the temple and area. These images comprise a significant volume of the accession and were used widely in the seven volume publication: "Temple to the Sun, Moon and Morningstar". The book depicts that indigenous peoples on the Great Plains 5000 years ago had significant scientific knowledge of the motions of the lights in the sky. The records including photographs, field notes, research notes, site excavation information, presentation, conference information and presentations (namely Archeoastronomy conference 1998), correspondence and observations embody the work that led to the writing of two additional books of the site: Canada's Stonehenge (2009) and "Hidden Stonehenge" (2012).
