STONEHENGE
Basic Facts:
Believed to have been constructed between 3,000
to 2,000 BC.
The earthen bank and ditch surrounding it is dated
to 3,100 BC.
The stones are dated to 2,400 to 2,200 BC.
The largest stones weigh 25 tons.
It is thought the stones were brought from 20 miles
away.
Smaller stones, bluestones, weighing up to 4 tons,
were brought from as far as 140 miles away.
Why was it built?
No one really knows.
Obviously, based on the effort it took to build, it was
important.
Most believe it was a Druid temple, but the stones
predate the Druids.
Based on a factual analysis of its design, it seems
to be a solar calendar to track the sun and moon
and the seasons.
Recent discoveries of bodies buried in the area,
also make it possible it was an intricate burial site.
Interesting Facts About Stonehenge:
1. There were originally only two entrances to it.
2. There are 83 stones.
3. 56 Aubrey pits are inside of it; their purpose is
unknown.
4. Charles Darwin concluded that earthworms were
responsible for the stones sinking into the earth.
It is owned by the Crown and managed by English
Heritage.
It is on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.
Of course, there are those who postulate other
theories about the purpose of Stonehenge.
What if it hides something?
Area 51: The TruthMythological artifacts become a modern arsenal in
a millennia-long interstellar battle. On one side
stands the alien race that styled itself as gods to
secretly steer human evolution. On the other is an
elite team of Area 51 commandos, dedicated to
freeing humanity from their interstellar overlords.
Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte and Lisa
Duncan are among the few who know the truth
about the extraterrestrial threat—& have the
power to fight it. But can they save the human
race from eradication or become pawns in an
elaborate plot to enslave the planet?
Having just retrieved the legendary sword
Excalibur—in actuality the control key to an alien
mother ship—from atop Mount Everest, Turcotte
rejoins the fight, intent on ending the ancient,
bloody conflict once and for all. Yet even as he
tries to avert a nuclear holocaust, a deadlier, more
insidious alien foe hides in the shadows, waiting
for the chance to alert its kind that Earth is ripe for
conquest.
The cover for the original Area 51 paperback is below.
The screenplay for this book has been written by one of the
developers of the original Alien movie.
