The secrets of the giant rocks 'Stonehenge'


Strange Stonehenge Mysteries Hanging Stones Confused the World

Against the backdrop of clear boundaries, the sky with infinite depth meets the rich Salisbury Plain, and Stonehenge looms, It is a strange secret and the mystery of these giant monument radiated coldly, not only is there a large number of unsolved puzzles, but the beauty of the stone structure made of it today attracts great scientists and ordinary travelers.


Information about 'Stonehenge'

A stone complex was built in the 3rd millennium BC in southern England, just a two-hour drive from London, England. Having known the location of the building, it will not be difficult for you to determine it, because the cultural monuments of the Bronze Age and Neolithic period have distinctive characteristics:

  • Five architectural elements depicting a horseshoe shaped three boulders with a total weight of 50 tons. Triliths are installed completely symmetrically, gradually increasing from 6 m to 7.3 m to the main trinity of stone. Time is unforgiving for this type of building, so experts had to repair the three-stone stele located in the northwest of Stonehenge, level the buttresses, and restore the original appearance of the central structure.
  • 82 Stonehenge rocks formed from the crystallization of magma. According to the latest research by experts from the National Museum of Wales, their deposits are well known. More than half of the 'blue stones' have been excavated at Mount Karen Menen, 240 kilometers from the ancient buildings. Unfortunately, it is still unknown how the material was extracted and how long it would take to reach the end.
  • 30 rocks weighing 25 tons. The unknown builder builds the four-meter-high stones in pairs in a diagonal pattern overlapping horizontally. The entire radial structure has not been preserved in our time, only an arch consisting of 13 blocks connected by horizontal blocks above.

For a more detailed study of the monument, you should refer to the pictures depicting Stonehenge drawings and descriptions of important objects.

Why the 'Giant Round Dance' was built 

Locals and people passing by often vandalize, cutting a small piece of an old building as a talisman to resist dark forces. British historian and writer Tom Brooks believes that megaliths are ancient navigation systems.

Most nature puzzle lovers call this monument a huge cemetery. This is not surprising, because many tombs were found on the territory of the complex, the earliest of which coincided with the period of construction of the first stage of the megalith.However, the main version of the Stonehenge building is simpler than the hypothetical.

The dance of the ring giant is believed to be a type of calendar that can determine the exact dates of the solstice, solar eclipse, and vernal equinox. Many scientists believe that with this structure it is possible to calculate the exact orbital period of the moon. In short, Stonehenge is an ancient stone observatory.

How was Stonehenge built?

Many people of all ethnic groups living in the area worked to create such a great structure for those centuries.

Where the material was taken:

  1. Lava.
  2. Volcanic 'tuff'.
  3. sandstone;
  4. limestone.
  5. Dolarite.

To demonstrate how the stone was built and how the stone was transported from a distance at Stonehenge, scientists conducted an experiment. Within one day, a group of 24 people successfully traversed a distance of 1 km with a batch of monochromatic materials. This indicates that the construction of the complex takes a long time.

In order to get the desired type of rock, these stones go through several stages of processing

  1. Multi-ton blocks have been traumatized, fire protection and water treatment.
  2. The huge stones were polished where Stonehenge was installed.

Over the years, scientists have been trying to figure out the century in which Stonehenge was built, who built it, and why. Due to the use of modern radioisotope dating methods to determine the age of the samples studied, carbon was released from the combustion of components. After that, the level of radioactivity is compared to the counterpart that refers to the necessary data. In this way, at the end of the twentieth century, the temporary stages of building a 'dance stone' were born:

  • Phase 1: The first phase of the construction of the boiling laid the foundation for the entire Stonehenge, where horns were found with signs of erosion during excavation.
  • Phase 2: During the second phase of construction, another trench was dug and 56 holes were sent to The Basashirouk. The caves are named 'Aubrey Caves' after British archaeologist John Aubrey. In 2008, during archaeological excavation at the seventh hole, the remains of 200 people were found. After conducting a radioactive carbon analysis, we determined the shelf life of the buried model 3100-2140. 
  • Phase 3: At this stage from 2440 AD to 2100 AD 30 stone circles of blue sandstone were built.

Interesting facts about Stonehenge

  • The first crematorium in Europe.
  • Darwin famously studied earthworms during the latter half of his life, and chose invertebrates from this area as a target for observation. Because of his passion, he was willing to make many archaeological discoveries in the grounds of the stone complex.
  • For 3 years, Stonehenge belonged to Cecil Tschip, who in 1915 gave the boiled as a gift to his wife, after which Shep donated the state monument.
