Stonehenge Revealed

By Leonard Farra

The 5,000 year old Stonehenge monument, in Wiltshire, has fascinated scholars for centuries and tourists flock to see it from around the world. In its first phase Stonehenge consisted of a large earth circle enclosed within a 6ft high chalk wall and an outer ditch. Within the outer circle there were 56 circular holes known as the Aubrey Holes. Three hundred later 80 bluestones, each weighing up to four tonnes, were brought to the site from the Prescelly mountains in Wales and, in a central position ,at right angles to the avenue, they were arranged in the form of two large concentric U’s. Another change occurred around 2,100 b.c.e , when a circle of sarsen stones , a natural sandstone, with a continuous run of lintels, was constructed. Within this circle there were five pairs of sarsens in the form of a huge horseshoe, each pair supporting a lintel, and the bluestones were re-arranged in oval form in the new formation. At some stage, two concentric henges were created on raised banks around Stonehenge so it now consisted of a series of concentric circles around a central U shaped enclosure. Archaeologists have recently produced a map under the surface of Stonehenge, and the surrounding area, and although they know a lot more about this mysterious site, some people believe that they have not provided a satisfactory explanation of its purpose.

I read about Mollie Carey’s fascinating visions at the site many years ago ,(1) but it was only recently that I found her own account on the Internet. Mollie Carey claimed to have discovered some previously unknown carvings on the stones but her visions are far more sensational . She said that one night when she was visiting Stonehenge, the Heel Stone, outside the main circle, began to glow . It took the form of a snake and from its mouth emerged a man. Fires were burning outside the circle and highly civilised people, dressed in colourful clothes, were celebrating. Now, this is where the story gets really intriguing for says that she became aware of a catastrophe in which much the world’s population perished. The ‘sky-people, she felt,’ came down to help the survivors of a submerged continent some of whom reached the British Isles and the Americas. With regard to the snake, she knew it was a symbol associated with these sky-people. http://www.egyouth.fsnet.co.uk/.

Mollie Carey’s vision is fascinating but what has it got to do with Stonehenge ? The best way to answer this question is to see what the Ancients, themselves, said about their past . What their legends, especially the more informative ones, say is that Earth was once visited by human-like beings who appeared to man dressed in long white robes and whose symbol was the serpent. They say that the visitors helped civilise man but when some people misused the technology given to them and became evil, and ignored warnings about their behaviour, the ‘star-people’ destroyed them with a great flood.

Mollie Carey said that she was aware of a lost flooded continent. However, more than one land appears to have been destroyed ,by flood, over the years, Contrary to what the Establishment would have them believe, many Native Americans say that their ancestors came to their country, not across the Bering Straits from Asia ,as is presently taught, but from lost flooded lands in the east or west. There were many early legends about submerged lands . In Western Europe, in the Middle Ages, stories were told about a lost Atlantic land called Hy Brasil .India also has its deluge legends and there are remains of a thousands of year old city off the Gulf of Cambay. Then there is the controversial rock formation off the coast of Yonaguni in Japan, which some claim to be the remains of a lost civilisation, and let’s not forget Plato’s famous story of Atlantis ,whose location has been the subject of many theories over the years, and the story of the lost continent of Mu in the Pacific. There were flood legends in Inca Peru and evidence of an earlier civilisation has been found beneath Lake Titicaca in the Andes. There are also submerged towns under the Mediterranean. Were some of these worldwide cities, or civilisations, destroyed in the Great Flood?

Mollie Carey’s Stonehenge vision appears to have been the subject of most of the hundreds of ‘allegorical’ deluge stories around the world which many people have taken literally. A few contain obscure references to the ‘sky-gods’, which only initiates understood, (2 ) but most describe how only two people, and sometimes some animals, were saved and that from them are descended the entire human race. Often, a local hill, or mountain, is identified as the place where the vessel of the survivors came to rest.(3 ) The deluge legend of the North American Hopi( 4) and the claimed ‘place of origin’ of some of the Central American Native peoples are related and the latter was symbolised in stone in some of the latters’s cities. (5) That its location has confused scholars comes as no surprise as they fail to appreciate that numerous early sources ,such as symbolism, sacred architecture, rituals and legends, suggest that it appears to have represented the ‘craft of the sky-gods’ from which the people emerged ‘after the Flood’ (6)

There are many suggestions of early contact between the Old and New Worlds such as Egypt’s cocaine mummies and the sunken Roman vessel reportedly found in Brazil several years ago. However, there is much more to this story for there were numerous versions of the sky-god religion around the Early World, just as there are of Christianity today. For example, a deluge legend from Ancient India tells of the rescue of a highly regarded man, Manu, from a lost flooded land ( 7 ) and the indications are that the celestial beings who accompanied him were Creator Gods in some Central American religions . (8) And bearing this in mind, it shouldn’t come entirely as a surprise that the symbolic layout of the Central American ‘place of origin’ was reproduced in an underground complex in Giza, Egypt . (9) Sceptics might say this is just a coincidence. However, a related form of symbolism , used in Incan Peru (10) was associated with the Osiris linked Afterlife traditions in Egypt.(11) It was also alluded to in some Egyptian rituals ( 12) and in those of other Early World peoples.

With regard to Stonehenge, it was neither a residence, nor a fortified enclosure, and the cremated human bones found in the Aubrey Holes suggest that it wasn’t a healing sanctuary unless they were medical disasters. And if was a sacred place where the ancestors were worshipped, as some scholars suggest, how do they explain the site’s astronomical alignments and its symbolism? Apart from the lintels, the plan of each of Stonehenge’s later phases was not unique as U shapes and concentric circles feature in rock art and were created in stone in some Stone Age sites around the world such as at Tustrup in Denmark where a central standing stone , in a U shaped enclosure, was aligned to the midsummer sunrise and where fiery rituals were enacted . (13)

Some of the early stones at Stonehenge are missing but their known positions ,and number, suggest that they may have represented the star-people who were symbolised in the form of standing stones in some early cultures.( 14 ) With regard to the Heel Stone , which played a major role in Mollie Carey’s vision, it was originally one of a pair which may have represented a gateway between secular and sacred ground. After its companion was removed, it was given a new symbolic role (15) in which the sun rose over its summit on the summer solstice. Could it be that it represented the civilising god whom, in some cultures,‘ came to Earth from the sun’ ( a disc) and who was widely associated with a serpent ? And although this might be no more than a coincidence, it’s worth noting that Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec civilising god , whose temple was circular, was depicted looking out from the mouth of a snake. (16 ) Serpent linked traditions, customs, and snake dances were popular in many early cultures and in England they were suppressed by the Church around the 12th century. Did they date back,in Wiltshire, to the Stonehenge era?

According to the Mayan and Hindu calendars, the present age began, and the previous one ended, 5100 years ago. Around that time, there was climate change, and flooding, in many parts of the world. Several civilisations arose ‘fully developed ’and many tribes were on the move settling into new lands. This was also a pivotal time for the Ancient Brits (17) Major changes were made to the landscape and ‘the first phase of Stonehenge began’. The advanced Sumerians , who settled in Iraq among the less developed population at that time, stated that the Flood was caused by the Annunaki whose leaders appear to have been the entities who were revered as gods in numerous early cultures. That’s another fascinating story which I have covered in my three Pleiades Legacy books.

If we remove the stones from the plan of Stonehenge , we are left with a circular enclosure and a long path that’s now known as ‘The Avenue’. This form of symbolism appears in Stone Age rock art and in the layout of early Stone Age sites in the Middle East, Pakistan and India. (18 ) It was also the plan of a sacred site used in the rituals of a Stone Age cult, a 100 years ago ,in ceremonies relating to the Earth visit of a serpent ,and Pleiades, linked civilising god. (19 ). The Pleiades were featured in traditions throughout the Early World. They were associated with the Flood, agriculture, and the civilisers of man and they regulated many calendars such as those of the Babylonians and the Maya. Some tribes believe that their ancestors came from these stars and one tribe ,whose traditions are ‘sky-god’ linked, claims that their people return there when they die.(20)

Both of the two main Celtic festivals, Beltaine and Samhain, began with the rising of the Pleiades. Samhain, the origin of Halloween, which was held on the first of November, was a window into the Otherworld when the dead returned to Earth. The Festival of the Dead was celebrated by many early people at that time and it was Pleiades linked .Colonel. J, Garnier wrote that ‘In Mexico, the festival of the dead was held on the 17th November and was regulated by the Pleiades. It began at sunset and , at midnight, as that constellation approached the zenith, a human sacrifice, says Prescott, was offered up to avert the dread calamity which they believed impended over the human race. They had a tradition that the world had been previously destroyed and they dreaded that a similar catastrophe at the end of a cycle would annihilate the human race. Garnier adds that, according to Ellis, in the Society Islands the Pleiades linked festival of the dead ‘was viewed as a national acknowledgement to the gods’. (21 )

Stonehenge was once a prominent feature in the landscape, among a complex of circles, burial mounds, and ceremonial paths, and ,bearing in mind that sky-god linked celebrations were taking place, when it was in use, throughout the world, it’s not unreasonable to suggest that it too was a sacred site dedicated to the worship of these serpent linked star people. (22) Mollie Carey suggested that ‘Tiahuanaco in Bolivia ties up with Stonehenge and Avebury’ which is twenty odd miles north of Stonehenge. Although there is no obvious connection between Tiahuanaco and Stonehenge, other than a probable ‘sky-god’ link, there was similar sky-god symbolism at Tiahuanaco and Avebury and also in, Egypt, Babylon, Assyria, parts of Asia, and Central America .(23 )

Based upon reports of surviving Stone Age cults, tribal customs, and various Early World religious traditions, we can surmise that the following ceremonies may have taken place at Stonehenge. Astronomer priests informed the people of the time to celebrate the peoples’ major religious festivals. These probably took place on the solstices and equinoxes, to which numerous ancient sites were aligned, and it’s likely that the rising of the Pleiades was an important feature in these events. At a prescribed time, the priests summoned the people to gather together, possibly by blowing trumpets. The congregation, led by richly garmented priests and dignitaries, proceeded along The Avenue towards the Stonehenge circle and they stopped to pay homage to the god represented by the Heel Stone. Only those permitted were allowed to enter the sacred circle. Women and children had to stay at a distance and were not allowed to take part in many of the rituals which may have included animal ,or human, sacrifice. Fires were lit around Stonehenge and there may have been serpent dances to celebrate the dawn of a new era and the return of the ‘star gods’. Stonehenge appears to have been the equivalent of a cathedral and similar ceremonies may have taken place in hundreds of other stone circles in Britain and in many other countries around the world.

The Bimini Road is a controversial underwater rock formation near North Bimini in the Bahamas.

bimini-road

The Bimini Road, sometimes called the Bimini Wall, is an underwater rock formation near North Bimini island in the Bahamas. The Road consists of a 0.8 km (0.50 mi)-long northeast-southwest linear feature composed of roughly rectangular to subrectangular limestoneblocks. Various claims have been made for this feature being either a wall, road, pier, breakwater, or other man-made structure.

Some alternative scholars claim that it’s man-made whilst sceptics insist that it’s only natural. Starting from 1974, Dr. David Zink began a series of underwater expeditions to research this controversial site and medium Carol Huffstickler , who accompanied him, had the impression that there was an Earth visit from the Pleiades around 30,000 years ago. She said of the visitors that ‘they must surely have seemed as gods to the earthlings they visited.(24} There is no evidence, at present, to confirm that this visit took place but ,if it did, then could it be that advanced beings from the Pleiades came to our planet on at least two occasions, the last one being around 5,000 years ago and which was commemorated by many early people including those at Stonehenge?

The flood during the Sumerian civilization

“And behold, I will bring a flood of water on the earth, to destroy all flesh, in which there is the spirit of life, under heaven; everything on earth will lose its life. But with you I will establish my covenant, and you will enter the ark, you, and your sons, and your wife, and your sons’ wives with you … ”.

This is how the epic story of Noah began in the Old Testament – a righteous man chosen by God to build a huge ship and save all kinds of living creatures. However, the myth of the great flood that destroyed sinners was not an invention of the ancient Jews.

The Sumerian civilization is rightfully considered one of the most mysterious in world history. For several thousand years the cities of Lagash, Ur, Uruk (there are hundreds of names) were economic and cultural centers between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Permeated by a system of irrigation canals, the river valley was a granary for a large population.

The winter months were accompanied by heavy rains and overflow of rivers. This is evidenced by the names of the tenth (December-January) and eleventh (January-February) months according to the Babylonian calendar – “drowning” and “beaten by the wind.” Agricultural cycles played a huge role in the life of Sumerian society.

However, the word “flood” could be used not only in relation to natural disasters. For example, the ancient Sumerian texts call the punishment of the king of the Akkadian dynasty Naram-Suena, the son of Sargon the Ancient, “flood”. The god of air and storms Enlil sent punishment to the ruler of the state for his unrighteousness.

The punishment itself had many stages, the most difficult was the plundering of the capital of the country of Nippur by the tribe of Kutii. Laments for Nippur became the mainstay of urban winter rituals. In them, the punishment of the gods is called “flood”, although, apparently, there was no talk of a water disaster.

In 1872, 32-year-old British engraver and Assyrologist George Smith, among the artifacts from the Ashurbanipal library, found a fragment of a clay tablet with a description of the legend of the Flood.

The find created a furor in European society – there were rolls over with the famous Old Testament legend about the righteous man Noah, who built the ark and survived a natural disaster. The following year, Smith was able to go on an expedition to Nineveh to find the missing fragments of the epic.

The trip was sponsored by Edwin Arnold, publisher of The Daily Telegraph. The search was crowned with success, and already in 1875 Smith published the results of his search in Assyrian Discoveries: An Account of Explorations and Discoveries on the Site of Nineveh, During 1873 to 1874.

The legend said about the anger of the gods against people for their unrighteousness, the already mentioned Enlil again initiated the punishment. It rained for many days and nights. However, there was one survivor – the king of the city of Shuruppak Ziusudra, warned by the god of wisdom Ea about the approaching dark times.

Indeed, in the 1930s, an expedition from the University of Pennsylvania led by archaeologist Erich Schmidt discovered a cultural layer in Shuruppak, consisting of deposits of clay and silt, which indicated flooding. The flood, dating back to the 5th and 4th millennia BC, also caused damage to the larger cities of Sumer – Uru, Uruk and Kish.

Ziusudra, who ruled in Shuruppak, according to legend, for several tens of thousands of years, built a huge ship to save his family, property and living creatures that lived on Earth:

“Everything that I had› I loaded there:

I put all the silver on the ship;

And he brought all the gold;

And I drove all the creatures of God there.

As well as family and relatives.

And from the fields and from the steppe

I brought all the insects there;

And he brought all the artisans to the ship. “

The cataclysm lasted 6 days, after which the water began to subside, and the ship ended up on the top of Mount Nisir – this is how Ararat was called in ancient times. The gods bestowed immortality on Ziusudra, and the human race again descended from him. The tradition is strikingly similar to the story of Noah. This allowed scholars to assert that the Semitic biblical legends were based on Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian myths.

This, however, did not end the story of the Sumerian righteous man. The last time, but under a different name, he appears in the epic about Gilgamesh – the heroic ruler of the city of Uruk. Utnapishtim (this is how Ziusudra was called in the Akkadian epic) tells the king how he achieved immortality. However, no plaque was found that would tell about the end of the conversation between the two powerful heroes.

It is possible that the motives of the Sumerian, and then the Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian culture penetrated into the Jewish culture as a result of the famous Babylonian captivity of 598-582. BC. The former captives who returned after the conquest of the capital of the state of the X Chaldean dynasty by the Persian king Cyrus the Great and absorbed the mythological layer of the ancient civilization, apparently recorded the Old Testament legends in the Torah. 

Many stories reflected in the Bible are somehow connected with the Babylonian traditions, which, in turn, are inextricably linked with the Sumerian culture.

A settlement was found in Iceland, which is mentioned in fairy tales

In 2013, archaeologists studied the Icelandic sea bay of Arnarfjordur, on the territory of which, during the Middle Ages, the Vikings supposedly lived. In the course of scientific work, scientists discovered a pile of ash, which clearly remained after the complete combustion of the ancient house. 

Due to lack of funding, the excavation had to be postponed until 2017, but, in the end, the researchers managed to find the remains of a 10th century farm settlement. At the moment, it is known that it consists of a hut, a 23-meter earthen house, three small houses, a workshop and a cowshed. 

The furnaces installed in the buildings were larger than usual, so scientists believe that thousands of years ago the inhabitants of these places were actively engaged in blacksmithing. The most interesting fact is that the life of the people of this region was told in one of the medieval sagas, which bordered on fairy tales.

Kraken – one of the monsters of Scandinavian legends

Viking houses

An unusual place was described in the Ancient Origins edition. In the excavated houses, archaeologists managed to find the remains of large furnaces with cracked stones. Based on the finds, the researchers put forward the theory that the Vikings who lived in the Arnarfjordur Bay were engaged in the extraction of iron and the manufacture of various tools. 

Unfortunately, the remains of these tools have not yet been found by archaeologists. In the future, they plan to use flying drones to find land plots, under which the remains of thousand-year-old Viking buildings and tools made by them may also be hidden. Everything that they manage to find will help to study the historical sagas, which talk about the life of the Scandinavian peoples in the period from 930 to 1030.

Excavation in Arnarfjordur Bay

The first inhabitants of Iceland

One of these sagas is Landamabok, written in the XII century. It is considered the oldest written source ever discovered, detailing the early days of Iceland. This historical work will give a list of the first inhabitants of Iceland: there are about 3,000 names and about 1,400 place names. According to Landnamabok, one of the first settlers of a place called Svinadalur was a certain Eyvindur Audkula. 

In 1300 AD, the ruler of these lands was Bjarnason Auðkýlingur. The places described in this saga have many similarities with the aforementioned Arnarfjordur Bay. Most likely, this work tells about local residents.

Frame from the series “Vikings”

Scandinavian monsters

But if this work tells about real people and events, then where does the fairy tale? The fact is that the historical work also deals with sea monsters that were seen in Icelandic waters. It is noteworthy that not only the people who first settled in Iceland in 874 AD believed in mythical creatures. 

Our contemporaries allegedly see them from time to time. According to Ancient Origins, about 4,000 sightings of sea and lake monsters have been recorded in Iceland over the past hundred years. Moreover, about 180 monsters were met in the Arnarfjordur Bay.

The Nekki is another Scandinavian scum. Something between a mermaid and a mermaid

Rumor has it that some people have been able to see huge monsters like the Loch Ness monster, whose existence has recently been again talked about. Most likely, all of these messages are used to attract the attention of tourists. In the Icelandic village of Bildudalur, which is just located on the coast of Arnarfjordur, in early 2010, even the Sea Monster Museum was opened. 

All the exhibits presented in this institution tell about monsters from Scandinavian legends. In addition to viewing the exhibits, visitors can also listen to stories from fishermen. In general, Iceland is famous for its mystical component and tourists can learn a lot about magic, monsters and other evil spirits.

The excavations in Arnarfjordur Bay should ultimately help historians to separate fiction from real facts in historical documents.

Sensational Findings About Nebra’s Celestial Disc: It is 1000 years younger than previously thought

Scientists from Germany have clarified the dating of one of the most famous and mysterious artifacts found in recent years. The Celestial Disc of Nebra, considered the oldest depiction of the cosmos, is younger than thought.

A new study of the celestial disk from Nebra, formerly considered the oldest depiction of space, has shown that it was made in the Iron Age, making it much younger. This is stated in a study published September 3 in the journal Archäologische Information and a summary of it appeared on the website of the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. Experts from the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich also took part in the study.

The Nebra Celestial Disc is one of the most significant archaeological finds in German history. In 2013, it was included in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register. This artifact was discovered in 1999, and was found by “black diggers”. Presumably, it was found along with swords, axes and bracelets from the Bronze Age.

Until now, it was believed that the celestial disk from Nebra dates back to the Early Bronze Age, created approximately in the years 2200-1600 BC. However, archaeologists from Goethe University Frankfurt and Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich re-analyzed the location and circumstances of the find. And they came to the conclusion that the disc must be dated to the Iron Age, which is about 800 – 50 BC.

The Celestial Disc from Nebra is one of the most significant archaeological finds in Germany and was included in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register in 2013. Searchers said it was discovered during illegal excavations in Germany in 1999, along with Bronze Age swords, axes and bracelets.

Therefore, many years of research have been aimed at verifying both the identity of the alleged find and the general origin of the objects, regardless of the vague information provided by black diggers.

As a result of new research, archaeologists concluded that the site, which until today was considered a find and which was investigated during subsequent excavations, with a high degree of probability is not the true place of the discovery of the celestial disk. In addition, there is no conclusive evidence that swords, axes and bracelets from the Bronze Age form a common ensemble.

According to archaeologists, this means that the disc should be examined and evaluated as a separate find. Therefore, since the celestial disc from Nebra does not correspond to the motives of the early Bronze Age and should be considered as an artifact of the Iron Age, the researchers say.

The Celestial Disc from Nebra was discovered in 2001 while trying to sell it on the black market for archaeological artefacts. The looters were detained, and the disc was handed over to the archaeological museum at the University of Halle.

Disc sellers said they found the disc in 1999 with a metal detector in the town of Nebra (Saxony-Anhalt, 60 km west of Leipzig). From the same burial, they extracted two bronze swords, two hatchets, a chisel, and fragments of spiral bracelets.

During excavations in Nebra, archaeologists did find traces of the presence of bronze. It also turned out that the soil from the excavation site is exactly the same as the traces of which were found on the disc.
