New about Stonehenge-the mystery: Was the heavy stones dragged 230 miles?

Where did the heavy stones which form the monumental Stonehenge, from, and how were they transported?

It is one of the great mysteries behind the well-known stenmonument, and now have a new excavation in a welsh mountain range provided a possible explanation. It writes Science.dk. the

the Excavation point, according to The Guardian, that people from the neolithic period have transported many rocks over land from a quarry in Wales, and 230 kilometers to the east to Salisbury in the south of England, where Stonehenge stands today.

It is a completely new theory, says one of the archaeologists behind, Rob Ixer, a researcher at the UCL Institute of Archaeology in England, to the Guardian:

- The previous theory has gone on, that they (the stones, ed.) had been dragged down the southern slopes to Milford Haven (a town in south Wales, red.) and transported by a fleet along the Severn estuary and River Avon (two rivers, ed.) and back to Salisbury. Now we believe instead that it is likely that the stones were transported manually, he says.

It takes the light of a dig at the welsh mountain range of the Preseli Hills, where they found two large monolith quarry, who seems to have a connection to Stonehenge.

At the quarry has, among other things, they found some big rocks in a very natural columns, as well as some selections of the fact that several of the pillars are carved of.

They have also discovered part wedge-shaped stenværktøjer, which, they believe, has been used to release the stones, just as they have discovered a designed platform.

at the same time has made carbon 14 dating of the stone, suggesting that they originate from 4000 f.v.t., which fits well with the dating of Stonehenge.

All of this together with stenbrudenes rankings suggest, therefore, according to the archaeologists, that they are monoliths, that form Stonehenge, have been transported from the western Wales 230 kilometers across the country.

the Study is published in the scientific journal Antiquity.

Here is the secret behind the vivid, well-preserved mumiehoveder.
