Interesting thread!
Perhaps relevant – a piece I wrote a long time ago, about Neolithic people's perception of direction:

Thank you for that paper, it bought to mind the two Saxon sundials on nearby churches, Kirkdale and Great Edstone (it featured in the Milliband episode). Simple designs for the hour of prayer, and yet so like the stones on the ground, like the great obelisk casting its shadow as the sun moves round. We have lost the art of contemplating the movement of sun and moon.
