Carnac stones

Carnac stones
The Ménec alignments, the most well-known megalithic site among the Carnac stones Stones in the Kerlescan alignments Although the stones date from 4500 BC, modern myths were formed which resulted from 1st century AD Roman and later Christian occupations, such as Saint Cornelius[3] – a Christian myth associated with the stones held that they were pagan soldiers in pursuit of Pope Cornelius when he turned them to stone.[4][5][6] Brittany has its own local versions of the Arthurian cycle. Local tradition claims that the reason they stand in such perfectly straight lines is that they are a Roman legion turned to stone by Merlin. In recent centuries, many of the sites have been neglected, with reports of dolmens being used as sheep shelters, chicken sheds or even ovens.[7] Even more commonly, stones have been removed to make way for roads, or as building materials.

Tiahuanaco: Gatway to the Gods by Dan Eden for viewzone Ask most people who are the oldest civilization or where the oldest civilization lived and you'll here answers like Mesopotamia (Iraq), Egypt or Iran. While these cultures can be traced back to 4000 B.C., the mysterious ruins of Tiahuanaco, in Bolivia, could be 14,000 years old! If you think the Great Pyramid in Egypt is a technological marvel, wait until you see what artists and engineers were doing in Tiahuanaco. This culture thrived at the breathless, oxygen deprived elevation of 13,000 feet. The most famous icon of the archaeological site at Tiahuanaco is the Sun Gate. This calendar sculpture, though it undoubtedly depicts a "solar year," cannot however be made to fit into the solar year as we divide it at present. Some researchers have attempted to explain this as being a ritualistic calendar while others have claimed that, 14,000 years ago, the length of a year was somehow different from today.

Göbekli Tepe Neolithic archaeological site in Turkey First noted in a survey in 1963, the importance of the site was recognised by Schmidt, who directed excavations there from 1995 until his death in 2014. Since then, work has continued under the auspices of Istanbul University, Şanlıurfa Museum, and the German Archaeological Institute, under the overall direction of Turkish prehistorian Necmi Karul. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2018, recognising its outstanding universal value as "one of the first manifestations of human-made monumental architecture".[5] As of 2021[update], less than 5% of the site has been excavated.[6] Background Göbekli Tepe was built and occupied during the Pre-Pottery Neolithic (PPN)—the earliest division of the Neolithic period in Southwest Asia—which is dated to between 9600 and 7000 BCE. Known PPN sites in the Urfa region. PPN villages consisted of clusters of stone or mud brick houses, and sometimes substantial monumental or 'communal' buildings. fill Art

Un Artefact mystérieux :un dodécaèdre romain qui empéche de dormir les scientifiques. Il a été appelé une arme de guerre, un chandelier, un jouet d'enfant, une jauge de temps, un instrument astronomique, et un symbole religieux - pour n'en nommer que quelques-uns. Mais quel est ce mystérieux objet, ? Il ya des livres et de sites web entier qui cherche à résoudre cette énigme.Pourtant, la seule chose que les historiens s'accordent c'est sur un nom pour cette objet étrange: un dodécaèdre romain. Cette partie a été facile, car la forme mathématique de cet artefact est un dodécaèdre. Mieux décrit comme un objet en bronze ou en pierre géométriques, il a douze faces planes pentagonales, chacun avec un trou circulaire au milieu (pas nécessairement la même taille). Il est daté de quelque part autour de la IIe et IIIe siècles de notre ère, et a été fleurissent un peu partout en Europe. Mais son utilisation reste un mystère, surtout parce que les Romains qui, habituellement tenaient une comptabilité minutieuse ne font aucune mention de celui-ci dans les archives.

Coral Castle Coral Castle is an oolite limestone structure created by the Latvian-American eccentric Edward Leedskalnin (1887–1951). It is located in unincorporated territory of Miami-Dade County, Florida, between the cities of Homestead and Leisure City. The structure comprises numerous megalithic stones, mostly limestone formed from coral, each weighing several tons.[2] It is currently a privately operated tourist attraction. Coral Castle is noted for legends surrounding its creation that claim it was built single-handedly by Leedskalnin using reverse magnetism or supernatural abilities to move and carve numerous stones weighing many tons.[3][4] History[edit] Coral Castle's own promotional material says Edward Leedskalnin was suddenly rejected by his 16-year-old fiancée Agnes Skuvst in Latvia, just one day before the wedding. Edward spent more than 28 years building Coral Castle, refusing to allow anyone to view him while he worked. The Castle[edit] A view from within Leedskalnin's Coral Castle.

Les géoglyphes Nazca Les géoglyphes Nazca - Vu 8414 fois. Une archéologue américaine a récemment mis à jour un squelette en fouillant un site au sud du Pérou. Avez-vous déjà entendu parler des géoglyphes de Nazca ? Vous ne voyez peut-être pas où je veux en venir ? Nazca se situe au Pérou et c'est dans cette région que de grandes figures tracées à même le sol ont été découvertes. C'est également dans cette région que l'archéologue a fait la découverte de ce squelette, lui-même situé dans une tombe Nazca. Tout de suite, un 'détail' saute aux yeux de l'archéologue, Christina Conlee, il manque en effet le crâne. Les dessins et emblèmes présents sur les poteries de ce peuple correspondent aux géoglyphes de la région, on est donc certains que les Nazca en sont les artistes. Les Nazca vivaient dans un milieu aride et très sec, mais cela ne les empêchait pas d'être de très bon agriculteurs, ils savaient dominer la nature. Comment s'y prenaient-ils pour tracer leurs géoglyphes ? Complément : nazca 32 commentaire(s)

Karmapolis Orphelins de laboratoire (par Liam Scheff) Pendant que des enfants meurent en direct à Besla devant les téléviseurs du monde entier, d’autres agonisent en silence entre les murs blancs d’une clinique, à l’abri des regards indiscrets. Pour ces orphelins séropositifs il n’y aura pas de couverture médiatique ou si peu. Un hebdomadaire, le New York Press, a néanmoins brisé le silence religieusement observé par la grande majorité des media sur la controverse des dissidents du SIDA en publiant un article décapant de Liam Scheff ; un journaliste engagé qui signe ici une enquête sur les études pharmacologiques menées à Washington sur des enfants abandonnés. Si les thèses des dissidents ou « rethinkers » sont maintenant bien connues, les milieux autorisés de la recherche sur le SIDA se gardent pourtant bien de répondre techniquement à leurs arguments qualifiés, au choix, de révisionnistes, conspirationnistes ou bio végétariens.
