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.

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

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.

Henges - Rondel enclosures

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England. One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks. Archaeologists believe it was built from about 3000 BC to 2000 BC. The original structure was a henge which is a circular bank and ditch enclosure, measuring about 110 metres (360 ft) in diameter, with a large entrance to the north east and a smaller one to the south. It has been dated to about 3100 BC.

What most people don't know is that almost 2000  years earlier, the same types of henges were built in central Europe where they are called rondel enclosures. Henges, rondel enclosures originate in the middle Danube area and Morava area. From there they have spread northward towards south Baltic finally reaching Saxony and Pomeranija. This means that the culture that built these megalithic structures came from Central Europe and reached the British Isles via south Baltic, and specifically Elbe region, Pomerania, Pomorje, the land of Fomori. 

Rondel enclosure, henge structures are mostly interpreted as having served a cultic purpose. Most of them are aligned and seem to have served the function of a calendar, in the context of archaeoastronomy sometimes dubbed "observatory", with openings aligned with the points sunrise and/or sunset at the solstices. This is the case with the "gates" or openings of the roundels of Quenstedt, Goseck and Quedlinburg as well as in Stonehenge. The observational determination of the time of solstice would have served a practical (agricultural) purpose. It could have been used to maintain a lunisolar calendar. The accurate knowledge of the date of solstice allows an accurate handling of intercalary months and determining the the correct date for agricultural activities such as plowing, sawing and harvesting.

Stonehenge 3 built by Wessex. Beaker/Wessex international traders was Meshech (which name has economic/commercial). Tarshish region of stone is megalithic/heliolithic.
Time of Gilgal (Joshua).
Egyptian fainece beads found there.
Mycenaen time artefacts found in Stonehenge/Salisbury area.
Stonehenge has 5x2 connection with Atlantis/Atlas. Link with Hyperborea.
Stonehenge damaged on southwest side points to Tiahuanaco/Atlantis.
Tiahuanaco the "American Stonehenge". Mystery Hill has been compared to stonehenge.
3 henges, 3 ages possibly?
Killaraus of Geoff of Monmouth is more likely Medway Megalithics, or Kildare, or Callanish.
Not sure if a link with the circling rock/mountain of the wonders of Britain?
rotas is 666.

Gobekli Tepe "Turkish Stonehenge".
