One of the most fascinating mysteries of the previous is Stonehenge. Made up of huge stones it’s situated on the Salisbury Plain In Wiltshire, England. There are various theories as to its origin and the purposes for which it was built? What is your take on what it WAS or what it was used for???

I wish to comply with the calendar/temple theory. Because the individuals of that space had been druids, it might make the most sense. As for the way it was built, all i can confirm is that they used a roap like materials and quite a lot of man power, with some picket building equipemnt as well.

Gentle shining by the pillars doesn’t essentially make it a religious site, or does it? Anyone?

It was most likely a temple and it had many “face lifts” I suppose that you can call them.

I have been to Stonehenge. Its not very far from my dwelling town. Absolutely beautiful countryside, but the stones aren’t that superb. Though its really all about how the stones acquired there in the primary place. Its an excellent thriller.

Easter Island is very interesting. And from what I perceive, a bit of more is thought about this culture than the builders of Stonehenge.

As to Stonehenge? Stone Island Polo-Shirts That I don’t know a lot about, however my thoughts are that it is a few form of calendar that marks essential days of the 12 months for religious ceremoniess.

I checked that site concerning Easter Island. Thanks. The discovery Channel has some great things and online too. Yes, Stonehenge goes back much further than Easter Island…at least the work on the stones there.

Both are mysterious and it goes to indicate you ways inventive and clever folks have been then –long before our modern expertise. And creative too.
From what I’ve read about Easter Island /the stone faces the idea is that that they had great religious significance perhaps have been even worshipped. I’m wondering why there have been so many of them and a few not fairly erect or complete just left….am merely speculating… but perhaps every one represented a person or a household. Some type of monument maybe to final endlessly. Effectively, they’ve lasted longer than many monuments to the past and can be there long after a few of ours are gone…Hummmm, I ponder…

You guys make me laugh. Thanks

Stonehenge was created about 2000 years BC by Druids on the time. The stone was cut from Quarry’s in Wales and transported on a primitive monitor system. (e.g. logs minimize and placed underneath the stones to roll them along). The Henge was created as an historic calander to mark the winter and summer season solstice as part of the Pagan religion of the Druids on the time.

How the welsh have been conned in dragging these stones all that method I have no idea. Suffice to say we’re not as gulliable or easily manipulated these days. Simply look on the Rugby.

Society on Easter Island progressed in the direction of collapse because the islands sources had been used up. Settlement of the island is thought to have started in the 6th century and was fairly actually a one shot affair. Most of the top constructing was in between the 14th and 16th centuries. As assets dwindled in the 15th and 16th century it became tougher after which impossible to proceed to construct extra heads. On the time as the collapse, mid 16th century, intra-island warfare led to the toppling of lots of theh heads and outright cannibalism as there were little or no meals assets left.

Easter island shouldn’t be a monument to thriller. It’s a monument to a societies collapse. A collapse so complete that when it was ‘re-found’ in the 18th century not even the residents had a lot, if any, idea of what the heads were for.

Actually, the head constructing stopped some time earlier than the society collapsed- it seems to have been replaced by a competing religion, which is manifested in rock artwork all over the island.

I heard that concept. I believe there is quite a bit to support it. I prefer to go together with the calendar. The folks whom constructed it were fairly sensible.

The Druid principle was once a extremely popular idea. Scholars now consider it archaic. Here is a URL which includes a wonderful rationalization of the various theories, once they emerged, and what they might mean. The article is just too long to incorporate, however checking it out or other articles should enlighten anybody in regards to the theories.
