This blog looks at the evidence of ‘Post Glacial Flooding’ after the last Ice Age and the subsequent ‘Megalithic Civilisation’ that developed thereafter. This in-depth analysis of Stonehenge, Avebury, Durrington Walls Woodhenge and Old Sarum, led Langdon to the discovery the location of the ‘lost world’ of Atlantis as described by Plato that existed ten thousand years ago and is now under the North Sea. In Neolithic period it was further adapted to incorporate a Sarsen stone monument, for the same purposes. Now if the Sun, Moon and planets rise and set in the exact same place year after year, then astroarchaeology would only be good for connecting these monuments to certain rituals such as the midsummer solstice celebrations and little else. Midwinter Solstice seen from the Altar Stone Axial Procession Wiki In astronomy, axial precession is a gravity-induced, slow and continuous change in the orientation of an astronomical body’s rotational axis. In particular, it refers to the gradual shift in the orientation of Earth’s axis of rotation, which, like a wobbling top, traces out a pair of cones joined at their apices in a cycle of approximately 26, years. This alters the view of space from earth as the stars revolve around the polar star and this polar star position will gradually change over this 26, period, eventually going back to the original position.

The Nebra Sky Disc was discovered in by two amateur treasure hunters illegally using a metal detector in Ziegelroda Forest, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. It had been ritually buried in a prehistoric enclosure atop a hill the Mittelberg , along with two precious swords, two axes, two spiral arm-rings and one bronze chisel. The enclosure is oriented in such a way that the sun seems to set every solstice behind the Brocken, the highest peak of the Harz Mountains, some 80 km to the north-west.
The recent dating of Sulawesi Cave art Indonesia to 37, BCE represents a major archeological discovery, with huge potential for ancient sites in Australia.
It reveals many more axe carvings and much new information on how the stones were shaped. The analysis found 71 new axehead carvings, increasing the number known at Stonehenge to This is around a years after the big sarsen stone circle was erected. Contrary to press reports, Stonehenge was not a huge art gallery – these carvings are found only on four stones. The scanning has also revealed incredible detail on how the stones were shaped. Some were “pecked” with stone mauls in horizontal lines, others with vertical lines.
The study, just published online by English Heritage and free to download, also provides information on how much damage has been caused by souvenir hunters chipping off bits of stone, or by visitors carving graffiti – including Sir Christopher Wren, the architect of 17th century London! Download the full report here: Using the latest geophysical imaging techniques, which “see” below the ground without excavation, it is possible to make out a dark circle of interrupted ditch. There are two wider gaps opposite each other – these were entrances to the monument and are aligned on the midwinter sunset and midsummer sunrise – like Stonehenge itself.
Theories about Stonehenge
In , at a depth of twelve meters, researchers found a peculiar set of aligned stones that are believed to be over 10, years old. While searching for shipwrecks, archeologists from the Northwestern Michigan College came across something interesting at the bottom of Lake Michigan. They found mysteriously aligned rocks placed there by ancient man before water covered the area. The rock formation found at the bottom of Lake Michigan resembles other structures found in England and France, and even those at Nabta Playa, making it very unlikely to be a natural formation.
The Mastodon rock is perhaps one of the most incredible features of the underwater Stonehenge.
Another theory is that they were brought much nearer to the site as glacial erratics by the Irish Sea Glacier  although there is no evidence of glacial deposition within southern central England.
Welcome to the home of The Question Evolution Project. Presenting information demonstrating that there is no truth in minerals-to-man evolution, and presenting evidence for special creation. The consensus is that it was built thousands of years before the time of Christ. But this dating is based on the common practice of evolutionary thinking, which is to reject records and other indications of age that don’t square with evolutionary preconceptions.
Then they get surprised that “ancient primitives” not fully evolved yet had the notions to do some intricate design work and amazing labor. From a biblical creationist perspective, it was built after the Genesis Flood by intelligent people. Evolutionary thinking also influence people to reject the Bible as a historical document because it contradicts evolutionary old Earth paradigms.
When going checking evidence instead of clinging to assumptions, more accurate results can be had. New research indicates that Stonehenge is just part of the story, and there are more structures underground. What we see is actually a small part of a much larger complex.
The other end of the Avenue – ‘Bluestonehenge’ The discovery another such monument on the supports the idea of an intimate connection between the megliths, the landscape, the visible heavens and the after-life. More about ‘Bluestonehenge’ The Heel-Stone – See Photo, right – At 20ft long 4ft underground , around 8ft wide by 7ft thick 3 , this stone is a classic example of an outlier, standing at the entrance to the earthworks, and in line with ‘The Avenue’. The ‘Heel-stone’ is a large upright, un-worked sarsen hard sandstone which lies immediately adjacent to the A road.
The nearest source of stones of the size represented by the large sarsens at Stonehenge is on the Marlborough Downs, near Avebury , about 30km to the NE. Extract from Burl – ‘The heel-stone is popularly thought to stand in line with the midsummer sunrise but it does not and never did
Archaeometry and Stonehenge Presentation of results of excavations and dating of the Stonehenge 20th century excavations project.
The International History Project Date: Archaeology studies past human behavior through the examination of material remains of previous human societies. These remains include the fossils preserved bones of humans, food remains, the ruins of buildings, and human artifacts—items such as tools, pottery, and jewelry. From their studies, archaeologists attempt to reconstruct past ways of life. Archaeology is an important field of anthropology, which is the broad study of human culture and biology.
Archaeologists concentrate their studies on past societies and changes in those societies over extremely long periods of time. However, archaeology is distinct from paleontology and studies only past human life. Archaeology also examines many of the same topics explored by historians. But unlike history—the study of written records such as government archives, personal correspondence, and business documents—most of the information gathered in archaeology comes from the study of objects lying on or under the ground Archaeologists refer to the vast store of information about the human past as the archaeological record.
The archeological record encompasses every area of the world that has ever been occupied by humans, as well as all of the material remains contained in those areas.
August 18, Research shows that the site has continuously evolved over a period of about 10, years. The structure that we call “Stonehenge” was built between roughly 5, and 4, years ago and was one part of a larger sacred landscape that included a massive stone monument that was 15 times the size of Stonehenge. The biggest of Stonehenge’s stones, known as sarsens, are up to 30 feet 9 meters tall and weigh 25 tons
The second group focuses on Native American ceremonial explanations for the features.
Bradshaws now called Gwion art are among the most sophicated forms of cave painting in Australia. Introduction Australian Aboriginal rock art may be the oldest Stone Age art on the planet. This possibility is supported by the studies of Professor Stephen Oppenheimer, whose research combines genetic analysis with climatology, archeology, fossil analysis and modern dating methods, in order to juxtapose early migration with early rock art , see for example his book “Out of Eden: According to Oppenheimer, modern humans first began arriving in Australia from islands across the Timor Sea during the Middle Paleolithic era, between 70, and 60, BCE.
Evidence of the ancient art if any of this first wave of aboriginal settlers is extremely scarce, but there are signs of pigment usage which suggest that they began painting almost immediately, although this might have been face or body painting rather than rock painting. In any event, human occupation in Australia has been carbon-dated to at least 53, BCE, and the oldest Australian human fossil has been dated to around 38, BCE – the difference probably being due to the drowning of the earliest coastal occupation sites by rising sea-levels: All this means that aboriginal migrants were settled in Australia some 10, years before their northern counterparts arrived in Europe.
So we may yet discover that Paleolithic art in Australia predates the cave art in Europe by a similar margin. Other, possibly even older examples of prehistoric art cupules have been discovered in the granite rock shelter of Turtle Rock, Northern Queensland, and in the dark limestone caves of southern Australia.

Well, the gates have opened, and tourists are pouring in to see it all for themselves. Attendance is up by 2. The Forbidden City is a dream destination for some Americans, but most have never researched a trip to Everland or Lotte World. And there are more surprises. Europe’s Most-Visited Tourist Attractions Where we choose to spend our vacation time says a lot about what we value.
But they do not seem to have had any planetary theory, nor did they have the proper mathematical techniques.
That is, Karate is perfected only when both the mental and the technical physical are completed together. In Japanese, Karate-do means ’empty hand path’. This ‘Path’ or ‘Way’ as in ‘Do’ which is the Japanese pronunciation of the word ‘Tao’ is a spiritual journey of self discovery, not to be confused with Taoism. In Karate, it represents the journey of mental and physical development through which each student must travel. We believe there is only one way to learn Karate-do; through commitment, effort, patience, and self discipline.
There are no short cuts.
