Stonehenge
#21
Right stonehenge was not built by any alien race or a race of pre human creatures that is just nothing more than fairy tales. If aliens did build stonehenge for some reason they used red deer antlers as picks to cut the holes in the chalk to put the stones in. The site around the henge (actualy its not a proper henge, google a henge definition) has been in use for a lot longer than the stones, two big post holes where found a few years back that if i remember correctly align with the sunrise rise at a certain time of year, on a near by hill top that date back around ten thousand years. If you want real answers and not fairy tales than I would highly recommend this book:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Stonehenge-Explo...stonehenge

Mike parker was the head of the last team of archeologists to be allowed to dig there and I think you'll find the facts about HUMAN achievement will be much more fascinating than any of the crazy ideas Ive read here.
The team were some of the first people to take into account the whole landscape and not just the moument itself they show how near by durrington wells and wood henge amongst others fit into the story, and oddly enough no alien artifacts where found.

As for the Druids well were not even sure they ever used the place as they left no written record and all we really know of them come from records left by the Romans, and its from these same limeted writings that we get our only imformation on tribes like the Hwicce or Hicca and yes that is where we get the word witch from. So modern druids and witches have absolutely nothing in common with there ancient counter parts as nothing much other than that was ever recorded, sadly.

On a side note if I were living where I live now but in pre roman times then I would of been living in
the area where the Hwicce lived Smile

The general consensus is that Stonehenge was built to mark the passing of the winter solstice. In the Neolithic (where monuments earliest phase can be traced to) the Neolithic was marked by the advent of farming in this country. Back then in the farming calendar, the winter solstice was the most important day in the calendar because it marked the beginning of the new farming year.

In the Neolithic though, life was very precarious- all it took was 2 seasons of failed harvest to send a community into famine. When the going was good it was very good, but when it wasn't things could quickly turn very bad indeed. Stonehenge was built when farming was first introduced to Wiltshire, though the people who built it may have their origins in the Orkney Isles of Scotland.

Describing it as a farming calendar though is a built over-simplified- people believed in nature spirits and gods back then and it would have been vitally important to maintain good favor with the gods. While there is some (lost) evidence that animal sacrifice was practiced at Stonehenge, there isn't any for human sacrifice.

There have however been numerous human remains found at Stonehenge and the burial practices of these vary (some were cremated, some were buried whole etc). And this is not really surprising- Stonehenge was used and venerated for thousands of years and peoples beliefs changed a lot over the millennia (just think of how much our beliefs have changed in christianity just these past 1000 years).

In terms of beliefs, it appears the place was also both a place of healing and a place to re-affirm tribal bonds. There is a multitude of evidence that people not only traveled there to be healed, but that they traveled from all over Europe to celebrate certain events and days of the year etc.

The biggest mistakes when viewing Stonehenge are;

1. To view it as an individual monument- it is not and is only one monument of a cluster of hundreds in a huge ceremonial landscape/complex. It may be the best standing and most obvious monument in the landscape today, but back in the day there were many more clearly visible monuments (and most of these seem to be connected to each other).

2. To view it as something that just appears out of nowhere in the archaeological record- again this is not true. Stonehenge was a continuation of a very long an ancient tradition of building monuments/henges. It is not the oldest henge (and even the current firm took thousands of years to evolve- if you went back 4000 years ago, the henge you would see then would look very unfamiliar to it's current form today. There were numerous building phases of Stonehenge etc).

3. To view it as the most important monument to people back then- to be sure, Stonehenge was very important to it's people back in the day. But to say it was the most important is to assume too much- there were bigger henges than Stonehenge (like Woodhenge) and there are other mysterious monuments in the direct landscape that may have been just as important (if not even more so) like The Cursus or Silbury Hill.

4. That the people back then weren't capable of building the monument with the technologies they had- this has been disproven time & time again. The people back then were more than capable of building Stonehenge with the technologies they had (and there is no need for aliens or time travellers to explain it's building or existence etc).

5. That it only had one purpose- the fact of the matter is that people seem to have used and venerated the place for a number of reasons (and these reasons changed over time). Like Christian church's today, people do not go to church for one reason only- there are many reasons why people go to church (and it is likely the same is true for Stonehenge).

Ultimately Stonehenge is a fascinating place and new discoveries and theories come out about it regularly. But it's best to keep things in perspective- the evidence, facts and even the positioning of the monument in the landscape itself etc.

Include also the acoustic properties of how sound travels through the stones, effectively bouncing around to amplify waves into the center area. Several studies examining how sound carries, conducted both at night and during the day, have proven repeatedly this interesting effect. As to the true reason of why, or if it was something intended by the builders, those are still largely debated.
We are part of a reality much deeper than comprehension can comprehend.

I believe Stonehenge was a place where aliens would use for teleportation to and from their home world. It is likely the device was taken when they left so they could use it on the next planet they traveled to, and possibly drew energy from the ley line is resides on. Also, check out the supposed underwater Stonehenge under Lake Michigan.

Perhaps an inspiration from an extra-terrestrial visit that captivated the druids based upon astronomical message and instruction.

The stones from which the Wiltshire stone henge was constructed were brought from Pembokeshire in Wales, where an even older Stonehenge is to be found. The big mystery is - How were the stones transported there? The sea between the two sites is usually very rough so there must have been good sailors and shipwrights even then On the part of the Welsh coast where I live fossilised human footprints of a young family have been found which dated back 200,000 years . Not a lot of help but just of interest.

The first Name of Stonehenge was "heaven"

After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven (stonehenge): and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither (north), and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne (mishkan) was set in heaven (stonehenge), and one (heelstone) sat on the throne (mishkan).
And he (heelstone) that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow (heelstone ditch) round about the throne (mishkan), in sight like unto an emerald.
And round about the throne (mishkan) were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders (24 fossils) sitting, clothed in white raiment (the chalk); and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
And out of the throne (mishkan) proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning (brass altar) before the throne (mishkan), which are the seven Spirits of God (7 gold relics).
And before the throne (mishkan) there was a sea of glass (the channel) like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne (mishkan), and round about the throne (mishkan), were four beasts full of eyes (heelstone eyeholes) before and behind.
And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle (heelstone pareidolia).
And the four beasts had each of them six wings (4 heelstone, 2 mishkan) about him; and they were full of eyes (heelstone eyeholes) within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him (heelstone) that sat on the throne (mishkan), who liveth for ever and ever,
The four and twenty elders (24 fossils) fall down before him (heelstone) that sat on the throne (mishkan), and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne (mishkan), saying,
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

The Healing Stones

Stonehenge (heaven) shall be a site of healing, again. Creatures may go there to be made well. The blind will receive sight. The lame shall walk. The lepers will be cleansed. The deaf shall hear. The dumb will speak. The maimed shall be made whole. The cancered will be cured. And the dead shall be raised up. Bluestones in the centre of Stonehenge (heaven) will be recharged, and the magical healing powers (G=c^5/Power, G=c^4/Force) in the Bluestones shall return; After the throne (mishkan) exhumation @ Heelstone.

However, if any charge or any fee for admission to Stonehenge (heaven) is ever imposed; Including, but not limited to: parking, taxes, bookings, etc, that site of healing will cease, again. Creatures may go elsewhere to be made well, Bluestones in the centre of Stonehenge (Heaven) will be discharged, Power of G, Force of G, stopped; And the magical healing powers in the Bluestones shall end, again.
