I've read lots of books about the mysterious builders of Stonehenge. But who built Stonehenge. Here's someone's strange perspective:

I think this stands in with the Scotia myth.

Scotia myth, red?
What a handsome figure of a dragon. No wonder I fall madly in love with the Alani Dragon now, the avatar, it's a gorgeous dragon picture.

Yup.  There is a legend that has an Egyptian Princess, named Scotia, fleeing the Old Kingdom drought with a few hundred subjects and ended up in and settling "Scotland".   There actually is some evidence to suggest this could have happened.  In the 30's they discovered the hulls of 2 Egyptian vessels in the mud somewhere on the Thames.  Notice I wrote, "could have".

Next on our programming - Mayans built the Egyptian pyramids!

Although we are constantly turning up new evidence of travels beyond what was previously known, the current trends of making announcements without solid proof is indicative of the depths to which "research" has fallen.

Could there have been "black" people in Scotland?  Possibly, but not if they were Egyptians, who are brown Mediterraneans.  And, since the Egyptians never built anything even remotely like Stonehenge, no basis for them constructing such a thing elsewhere.  In fact, no record of any race from the Middle East or Africa building such structures...not even the ancient Minoans.

Personally, I think the scholars are missing a good bet, however,  I have it on good faith from an old tribal chieftain that the South American native Indian tribes actually journeyed to Egypt and built the pyramids as copies of their Meso-American ones, and that is what explains the uncanny similarities.  Tune in next week for more startling revelations.  Cool

No No No! silly man, it was the Goa'uld  Wink

Stonehenge isn't even a "henge".
 Must say it is rather boring to me, i have been 3(?) times.
Just walk round a roped area. Cant even go "in" it
 It is an imponderable just how the ancient English did build it

I think Ħaġar Qim  ( Malta) is a better visit, i did read that the same culture built both.

I was fortunate to be able to visit twice while it was still completely open to the public.  Even laid down on the altar and gazed at the sky - erie feeling.

I thought it was obvious who built stonehenge: the Bronze Age ancestors of the ancient Britons. Their priests (and the later druids) used it for ceremonies

Well the populations of Wales, Ireland and Western England seem rather pale for people out of Africa.

So Aylmer von Fleischer thinks that Africans built Stonehenge? There's a queue though;
Local folklore blamed the devil. Inigo Jones thought the Romans built it. Walter Charlton said it was the Danes. William Stukeley said it was the Celts. Others said it was built by the Phoenicians, the Egyptians, the Atlanteans, or space aliens. Geoffrey of Monmouth said it was Merlin who levitated it from Ireland, where it had been originally built by giants using magic stones from Africa (and so we come full circle).

Yes, there is.  People who have such a tan look like pale prunes!  Big smile

I had one when I was stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington.  300 days of rain a year.

Our son has been assigned there since 06.  I don't know how he stands that climate.  Both he and his wife love it out there.
Once while we were visiting, the Sun came out.  No one knew what it was.  They held a Mass, public prayer meetings etc.  Thought they were being punished by the Gods or something.Big smile

I would on occassion sit near the top of Squaw Tit (now not politically correct to refer too in those terms; but check quick and see if I care) at Yakima Firing Center now Yakima Training Center.....and by looking west could see the thunderheads rolling over the Cascades from W. to E.
 
They were getting shit on... on the west slope. But by the time the clouds climbed high enough to cross; the orographic lift effect had struck...which is why Yakima is a combo of high mountain plateau and desert.
 
Amen.
