The Colosseum – Ancient history
British archaeologists have excavated one of the graves in the Stonehenge and found the remains of the child and the stone sculpture, which can be one of the first children’s toys in England. Age stone hedgehog (or pigs — scientists have not yet made a final decision) is estimated in 2 thousand years. “You can argue about whether a hedgehog or a pig, but I personally like the idea of a hedgehog,” says Joshua Pollard (Joshua Pollard) from the University of Bristol.
The yellow dot on the map of England – Stonehenge
A gigantic construction of Stonehenge is a stone Enigma in the very centre of England – so called this amazing monument is one of his researchers Dr. Omlor Trever, describing ancient monument of English history, located in the southern part of the British Isles. To date, archaeologists agreed that this architectural monument was built in three stages between 3500 and 1100 years BC . Originally Stonehenge I was a circular ditch with two rooms and possibly served as a cemetery. In a circle along the outer shaft located 56 small funeral “Aubrey holes” a”, named after John Aubrey, who first described them in the XVII century. To the North-East of the entrance to the ring was huge, seven-Heel stone.
During the construction of Stonehenge II was built earthen walkway between the Heel stone and the entrance. Have been erected two rings of 80 huge boulders blue . which are likely to be delivered over 320 km from South Wales. At the final stage of construction was carried permutation megaliths. Blue stones replaced the circular colonnade of 30 trilithons, each of which consisted of two upright stones and build them on a horizontal plate. Inside the ring was a horseshoe of five detached trilithons.
Overall, Stonehenge is a structure of 82 five-ton megaliths, 30 stone blocks, each weighing 25 tons and 5 huge so-called trilithons, stones, weighing up to 50 tons. The stone blocks form the arches, which served as a perfect indicator of the world. Until recently, scientists assumed that this monument was constructed in 3100 BC who lived in the British Isles by tribes to observe the Sun and Moon. But the latest data of modern science make us reconsider many of the conclusions of the researchers.
In the 20-ies of the last century geologists had established that the stones for the construction of the complex were brought from quarries located more than 300 kilometers from the construction site. Not even worth talking any extraordinary effort required the transport of huge stone blocks. Why would ancient people need to make great efforts on cutting, complex transportation and processing of solid blocks their incredible precision installation in strict order? The answer to this question yet.
The famous astronomer Fred Hoyle, after examining all the geometric features of Stonehenge, determined that the creators of this facility knew the exact orbital period of the moon and the length of the solar year. According to the findings of other researchers, the wells inside the circle formed by stone blocks, precisely indicate the trajectory of the celestial Pole 12-30 thousand years ago! In 1998 scientists-astronomers recreated by computer original form of Stonehenge and conducted different research Their findings were shocking to many.
It turns out that this ancient monolith is not only a solar and lunar calendar, as previously thought, but predstavljaet an accurate model of the solar system in cross section. According to this model, the solar system consists not of nine but of twelve planets, two of which are located beyond the orbit of Pluto, and another one between the orbit of Mars and Jupiter where now is the asteroid belt. In principle, this model confirms the assumption of modern astronomy and is consistent with the views of many ancient peoples also believed that the number of planets in our solar system equal to twelve.
A characteristic of all ancient megaliths, is their unusually high earthquake resistance . Studies have shown that when the construction was used a special platform, mitigating or completely extinguishing the tremors. On these platforms the majority of all ancient structures. In addition, foundations are almost no shrinkage of the soil, which inevitably occurs during modern construction.
Scientists do not known who and for what purpose erected a grandiose astronomic Observatory in the heart of England. But after thorough research it became clear that to ascribe the erection of this great megalith to the ancient tribes of the druids who lived in Ireland in those days, is simply unreasonable. One thing is certain, whoever the ancient builders, they possessed great knowledge of astronomy, mathematics, Geology and architecture. And when you consider that the Grand monuments and structures in historic times were erected practically all over the world, we can conclude that we, modern people know almost nothing about their own history.
In the meantime, scientists are studying this ancient monument, Stonehenge continues to live his life in folklore. According to local legend, the giant blue stones have healing powers, they appeared on this earth by the wizard Merlin, the magician at the court of king Arthur, who brought them from Ireland. For a long time Stonehenge was associated with the priestly cult of ancient druids, although experts believe it is not true.
