I admit to being fascinated by Stonehenge and other ancient structures (like the faces on Easter Island) that befuddle scientists, historians and anthropologists. I read on my news feed that they've discovered a large circle of pits or shafts a few km away from Stonehenge. Had you heard about this? I believe I read that there may have been wood structures there as well. I'll be keeping my eyes and ears open for more information about this new discovery. For the record, I think they said that the newly discovered shafts are about 4500 years old. Are you interested in this kind of stuff?

Yes, just read some articles about. Will probably read more when I know more. I've been there once, at Stonehenge. With my internet friends. We went to some other stone circle first, but didn't sacrifice anything to the ancestors, so when we came to Stonehenge we got drenched. It rained for about 15 minutes, but it was like getting a bucket of water thrown at you. The next day (we stayed a night) all my friends still had wet shoes, but I had brought two pairs. I felt very prepared.

@TheHorse There's one quite close to Stonehenge, at Avebury. You can walk around in that one, which is pretty cool. I've also seen the Ring of Brodgar on Orkney. There's some huge sonte monuments in France I'd quite like to see, but I'll have to wait til after the Virus is gone I think.

@TheHorse records from a lot of early civilizations talked about a great flood not just in the bible, makes me wonder what the people and the civilization were before the great flood. I think the same thing would happen to us if we destroy our planet with nuclear bombs and we return to being cavemen with only very few records of of these present civilization surviving.

@TheHorse I don't know. I probably saw the same article that you did. We visited Newgrange in Ireland. During the winter solstice, the sun shines down the 19 metre passage and illuminates the chamber at the end. They must have known a lot about the seasons, etc to construct this so precisely.
