The mysterious building
Historians can’t find an explanation for the existence of many amazing buildings of antiquity that were built around the world.
The British Stonehenge is just one of many megalithic (giant stones ) structures that are widely distributed in Europe, especially in its Western part and in the British Islands. Stone monoliths in several tons weight are separate, in the form of a kind of the poles, vertically or horizontally, making together a similar goal and design sometimes forming circles.
With the help of new theories and recent discoveries by scientists are trying to find a connection between these located at a considerable distance from each other structures.
These stone structures have attracted the attention of Alexander Thom, a Scottish engineer and Professor at Oxford University. For several years he researched them thoroughly. The results of the survey and resulting theory were published in two books -“the Megalithic structures of Britain” 1967) and “Megalithic lunar observatories” (1971).
Tom suggested that the builders of the megalithic structures of Western Europe was following some generally accepted rules. By measuring and comparing the largest of the structures, he found that applied at the time a unit of length, the so-called egalitatian, was 83 cm It is also found that the architects of the time were known for six of proportional geometric figures (thus, they were centuries ahead of the famous mathematician Pythagoras).
The most important of the volume obtained results confirmed the correctness of the conclusions made earlier by two astronomers. Norman Laksam and Gerald Hawkins. In 1906 they published a book in which he argued that the priests-astronomers had planned Stonehenge as a calendar, the stones which are arranged in a particular way, noting the important points.
It is necessary to know!
One of the theories which tried to explain the purpose of some of the mysterious ancient buildings, is the theory of Ley lines. English businessman Alfred Wat Keynes in the 1920s first suggested that among the various ancient buildings and monuments there is a clear link.
Watkins reflected on the location of the ancient monuments in Herefordshire, when he was struck by the thought that “they are a chain, linking mountain peaks”.
Watkins claimed to have discovered a complex system of straight lines connecting the megalithic constructions, mounds and other notable landmarks. These lines he called lay-lines (from drevnekeltskogo word meaning “cleared land “) and suggested that they are cars built between 4000 and 2000 BC and later forgotten.
Book Watkins “the old straight road” (1926) inspired a group of enthusiasts who developed his theory in the 1930s Reprint of this book in 1969 caused a new surge of interest in the problem, the researchers of this generation have suggested that Ley lines coincide with the energy lines of the Earth.
Development of ideas Watkins in the recent past has resulted in widespread misunderstanding about the reference to Ley-lines of absolutely all the mysterious buildings of antiquity, regardless of whether they have any relation to astronomy.
