Crichton E M Miller FCILT, is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport,  he is a retired architect of Cloud platforms in logistics supply chains. His research is focused on ancient astro navigation as a branch of Archaeoastronomy  by non literate Neolithic and Bronze Age seafarers for the purposes of seasonal hunting and trading as part of early logistics and transport and evidenced in artefacts from considerable distances recently discovered in burial sites.. Seeking a simple instrument using wood, threads and plumb bobs, Crichton reverse engineered  the "Sun Wheel symbol  in 1998 and 1999 as the only practical solution for taking spherical geometric observations in the prehistoric past and was granted two British patents as a working model proof of functionality and practicality and as an early forerunner of later quadrants, sextants and theodolites used for primitive astronomy, navigation and surveying . Crichton's original theory in 1998 was that seafaring and nomadic hunter gatherers and later traders utilised primitive astronomy for local timekeeping from manned watch stations and were potentially capable of taking into account calculations of the effects of axial precession, earths obliquity and lunar nodes .  Since publishing his theory, support appears to be extant in the analysis of the  Antikythera mechanism  as a predictive astronomical almanac requiring preliminary observations.
