Carnac Stones - Carnac, France. Carnac is a small village of about 5,000 people in the region of Brittany, northwestern France.
It is home to the Carnac Stones, a system of more than 3,000 prehistoric standing stones. History The Carnac Stones were hewn from local rock and erected by the pre-Celtic people of Brittany. The megaliths were erected during the Neolithicperiod which lasted from 4500 BC until 2000 BC. The precise date of the stones is difficult to ascertain as little dateable material has been found beneath them. About 3300 BC is the date most commonly estimated for the site's main phase of activity, but some megaliths may date to as early as 4500 BC. Cultura megalítica da Europa.

Desenvolvimento da cultura megalítica da Europa A cultura megalítica europeia foi uma civilização pré-histórica e pré-literata baseada principalmente na Europa Ocidental e que deixou um legado de grandes monumentos de pedra (ou megalitos) dispersos através do continente. Calcula-se que as primeiras destas construções, encontradas na Península Ibérica, datem de aproximadamente 5000 a.C., antecipando desta forma as pirâmides do Antigo Egipto por cerca de dois milénios. Distribuição de estruturas megalíticas na Europa, Norte de África e Sudoeste da Ásia Constituídas originalmente de tumbas comunais e outras estruturas bastante simples, o desenho dos megalitos evoluiu posteriormente para incluir as fileiras de pedras da Bretanha e as centenas de círculos de rochas da ilhas britânicas, dos quais o mais famoso é Stonehenge.

"I have discovered the secrets of the pyramids, and have found out how the Egyptians and the ancient builders in Peru, Yucatan, and Asia, with only primitive tools, raised and set in place blocks of stone weighing many tons!
" - Edward Leedskalnin Often equated with the engineering feats of Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid of Egypt, Coral Castle was built by reclusive eccentric Edward Leedskalnin, who single-handledly erected gigantic quarried stones resulting in his enigmatic castle. Originally located in the tiny town of Florida City in the l920's, the site was later moved to it's current location just south of Miami, Florida. Ed is said to have built the Castle for his "sweet 16" supposedly, a woman from his native Latvia who had promised to marry him and then changed her mind at the last minute.
Sweet Sixteen is actually a sheilded allusion to his discovery--the ability to redirect the forces of gravity using earths' magnetics, utilizing uncanny knowledge of hyperdimensional physics. Coral Castle Museum. Carnac Stones. Carnac Megaliths, the World's Largest Prehistoric Stones Collection The Carnac stones are an exceptionally dense collection of megalithic sites around the French village of Carnac, in Brittany, consisting of alignments, dolmens, tumuli and single menhirs.
More than 3,000 prehistoric standing stones were hewn from local rock and erected by the pre-Celtic people of Brittany, and are the largest such collection in the world. Most of the stones are within the Breton village of Carnac, but some to the east are within La Trinité-sur-Mer. The stones were erected at some stage during the Neolithic period, probably around 3300 BC, but some may date to as old as 4500 BC. There are three major groups of stone rows - Ménec, Kermario and Kerlescan - which may have once formed a single group, but have been split up as stones were removed for other purposes.
Göbekli Tepe. The function of the structures is not yet clear.
The most common opinion, shared by excavator Klaus Schmidt, is that they are early neolithic sanctuaries. Discovery The site was first noted in a survey conducted by Istanbul University and the University of Chicago in 1963. American archaeologist Peter Benedict identified it as being possibly neolithic and postulated that the Neolithic layers were topped by Byzantine and Islamic cemeteries.
The survey noted numerous flints. In 1994, Klaus Schmidt, now of the German Archaeological Institute, who had previously been working at Nevalı Çori, was looking for another site to lead a dig. The following year, he began excavating there in collaboration with the Şanlıurfa Museum. Dating View of site and excavation.
