Stonehenge Was Monument Marking Unification of Britain

ScienceDaily (June 22, 2012) — After 10 years of archaeological investigations, researchers have concluded that Stonehenge was built as a monument to unify the peoples of Britain, after a long period of conflict and regional difference between eastern and western Britain.

Its stones are thought to have symbolized the ancestors of different groups of earliest farming communities in Britain, with some stones coming from southern England and others from west Wales.

The teams, from the universities of Sheffield, Manchester, Southampton, Bournemouth and University College London, all working on the Stonehenge Riverside Project (SRP), explored not just Stonehenge and its landscape but also the wider social and economic context of the monument's main stages of construction around 3,000 BC and 2,500 BC.

"When Stonehenge was built," said Professor Mike Parker Pearson of the University of Sheffield, "there was a growing island-wide culture -- the same styles of houses, pottery and other material forms were used from Orkney to the south coast. This was very different to the regionalism of previous centuries. Stonehenge itself was a massive undertaking, requiring the labour of thousands to move stones from as far away as west Wales, shaping them and erecting them. Just the work itself, requiring everyone literally to pull together, would have been an act of unification."


So Merlin the wizard wasnt involved after all? No extra-terrestrials? No Druidic sacrifices?

You mean it was just human beings all along? We humans were actually able to achieve this after all?


Now we know.


Shocked

Is a show called "Ancient Aliens" on the History Channel - one of the few shows that can actually count as "history" on that channel any more, as it all just seems to be crap like "Pawn Stars", "Storage Wars" and "American Pickers" these days....
