Pillars of the Past Volume IV is a soft cover book of 616 pages published by The Velikovskian in 2013, and contains a wealth of information gathered on the subject of chronology.

This fourth volume of the series examines the chronology of the era of Stonehenge and the Megalithic World. Archaeologists maintain the these monuments, the pottery, graves, metal, and stone tools, skeletons etc., associated with them only make sense if we place these in the Late Neolithic Age, ca. 40000-1500 B.C. However, there is a wealth of evidence that denies this placement and instead points to the Megalithic Age falling in the post-Roman era/the Early Middle Ages ca. A.D. 600-900. All the dating methods used to date the megalithic world have failed and this is admitted repeatedly by modern researchers. The astronomical alignments employed to date these monuments that were used to criticize Velikovsky's chronological thesis have now fallen into ruins under the scrutiny of these authorities.  The only non-controversial alignment that exists at Stonehenge apparently fits there between 500-700 A.D. Employing dozens of technological forms of evidence such as burning of peat to obtain red ash, styles and production of pottery, climatology, agronomy, animal husbandry, agricultural methods such as fertilization, plowing heavy earth, etc., architectural forms and artifacts, toilet and sewage drainage, the action of earthworms and much, much more, the evidence that places Stonehenge and the Megalithic Age in post-Roman times is overwhelming.

Hard evidence from sites across the Afro-Eurasian landmass dated to the Neolithic Age all show that they are post-Roman entities. The cause of the fall of the great technologically advanced Roman world into the abject poverty of the early Middle Ages/Megalithic Age is fully explained. Those chronographers who have claimed this period does not exist, such as Heribert Illig, Gunnar Heinsohn, Anatoly Fomenko, Emmet Sweeney, are challenged to answer this evidence. Mike Baillie's and Laurence Dixon's theses are also examined and they are challenged to show that the forensic historical evidence presented in this volume does not match their chronological concepts. Volume IV completes the examination of chronology and is must reading for those interested in what forensic history tells us about chronology.
