universities, resulted in the down-to-earth verdict on the famous megalithic monument of Stonehenge, which will probably disappoint the modern pagans, occultists, etc., who flock to the area.
As announced by the scientists 2 years ago, it wasn’t a prehistoric astronomical observatory, or temple of the sun or of the ancient Î”ÏÏ…Î¹Î´ÏŽÎ½, or infirmary body and soul, nor-much more – was built by aliens! It was just the first symbol of unity of the peoples of Britain, who felt the need to construct after a long period of conflict between the inhabitants of the eastern and the western regions, thus making the first steps to a United Kingdom.
The great stones that were used, it is believed that they symbolized the ancestors of different groups (clans and tribes) of the first agricultural communities of Britain. The researchers from the universities of Sheffield, Manchester, Southampton, ÎœÏ€Î¿ÏÏÎ½ÎµÎ¼Î¿Ï…Î¸ and University College London, who worked for a decade as part of the ‘Stonehenge Riverside”, studied thoroughly, and the monument built between 3,000 and 2,500 bc.G., as well as the broader social and economic conditions of that era.
As reported by the head professor Mike Parker Pearson of the university of Sheffield, according to the british “Telegraph” and “Daily Mail” and the mere fact of its construction, which required the participation of thousands of people who had to work together to carry the stones from vast distances (up from west Wales), to the Î»Î±Î¾ÎµÏÏƒÎ¿Ï…Î½ and the place was a symbol of unity. In an era where already in Britain appeared the first signs of a single culture from the North to the South (e.x. same style of houses and ceramics), in contrast with the regional differences that were strong by then.
According to scientists, the ancient British chose a location for the monument, which was already of great importance for them, probably because they considered as the center of the world (them) and where already flocked en masse to celebrate the summer and winter solstices.
Scientists have rejected categorically the at times imaginative scenarios that the builders of Stonehenge were inspired by the ancient Egyptians or aliens. “All the architectural influences of Stonehenge can be found in previous monuments and buildings within Britain, with origins in Wales and Scotland. In fact, the Neolithic people of Britain were isolated from the rest of Europe for centuries. Britain may be joined, nevertheless showed no interest to come in contact with people on the opposite bank of the channel (the English Channel). Stonehenge seems to have been the last breath of the culture of the Stone Age, which was isolated from Europe and from the new technologies of gear from metals and the wheel,” said professor Pierson, the new book whose “Stonehenge: Exploring the greatest mystery of the Stone Age” (editions Simon and Schuster, 2012) presents in detail the new findings.
