The technology and wisdom that are inevitably required in constructing such a monument show that these prehistoric peoples had had more expertise than expected. The planning and assembling of Stonehenge took a very long time (about one thousand years, from 2800 BC to 1500 BC*), and not one but many different groups of people were involved in the process. How they came about plays an important role in understanding them. Some of the first men to come to England that are connected to the Stonehenge builders came when the ice blocking Britain and France melted around 10,000 BC (Souden, 104). After them, many more groups of people came from the mainland, and had great influence on those already living there.
Stonehenge, located in England has been a wonder of the world for years and years to come. Its mystery is baffling and can be seen as inconceivable. For over 5,000 years it has stood silently in its current position. It has been excavated, x-rayed, measured, and surveyed. Even though so much has been discovered about this wonder, such as its age and the way it was constructed, its real purpose still remains a mystery.
The only thing we can ever be entirely sure about is the location of Stonehenge. This is because radiocarbon dating on the stones shows us that Stonehenge came from around 5000 years ago - a time period before writing and recording information. There are many different theories behind the creation of Stonehenge and its significance – still today; historians do not have evidence to show who built it. Stonehenge has always been one of the words biggest questions, therefore leading to large amounts of speculations from different scientists, historians and archaeologists. But first we must know what a henge is, according to Dictionary.com a henge is “a Neolithic monument of the British Isles, consisting of a circular area enclosed by a bank and ditch and often containing additional features including one or more circles of upright stone or wood pillars: probably used for ritual purposes or for marking astronomical events, as solstices and equinoxes.” Where is it located?
Each stone was set up in a particular way; two stones would stand horizontally and one stone lies on top of the other two vertically. The question is, how and who could lift 40 tons and stack them on top of each other? Since Stonehenge has many unanswered questions, scientists, Archeologists, and civilians have mad... ... middle of paper ... ...es. Bevins told BBC news “I’ve been studying the stones for over 30 years, and I’m no closer to finding an answer which convinces me either way. But the one thing which I am sure of is that each piece of the puzzle we find, brings us another step closer to the truth” (History in the Headlines 2).
Saul Franco-Jimenez ART 103 Professor: Alan Byrne April 27, 2015 Ancient Egyptian architectural believes The Ancient Egyptian architectural culture is very unique to all because it's mysterious in many ways. The way the pyramids were built, the way their religion motivated their architecture, and what they believed in is very interesting and astonishing to a lot of people. One of the greatest cultural achievements of Ancient Egypt was undoubtedly in their architecture associated with religion. The Egyptians were the greatest builders "Temples, tombs and pyramids - all have witnessed this earth for thousands of years. The pyramids of Egypt are the last remaining Wonder of the World.
The calculation itself goes on for about 1200 hours. The staggering length of the computation of the proof is what creates some controversy in the mathematical world. The Appel-Haken Theorem is based on numerous assumptions, “that there is an overwhelmingly great probability that their method of proof must succeed.”  It assumes that the theory itself is correct, but the theory itself is also an assumption. You can see why this issue has been wreaking havoc for many years. It all started back in 1852 when Francis Guthrie was coloring a map of England.
Stonehenge and Durrington Walls/Woodhenge For centuries, Stonehenge has been a structure of wonder for all those who see or hear about it; many people wonder how it was built and why. Over the years, Stonehenge and the similar surrounding structures have been heavily studied, with new discoveries found yearly. Construction of Stonehenge itself started around 2600 BC on the Salisbury Plain in England (Grimston, 2007). It is constructed of large stones brought from the Welsh mountains positioned into several circular patterns (Grimston, 2007). Not too long ago, a discovery was made near Stonehenge called Durrington Walls.
After the three stages are completed there should be a wonderful Stonehenge. This remarkable landmark will later on be visited and toured by millions of people from all around the world. It’s the year 3000B.C. and the first phase has begun. Although a couple hundred years ago people were starting the first phase, they didn’t complete it.
Stonehenge Stonehenge, one of England most puzzling structures has historian, researchers and archeologists very unsure of it actually purpose. Whatever Stonehenge is it is a remarkable structure full of mystery and magic. Between 1919 and 1950 was a major breakthrough when archeologist began finding the remains of Stonehenge, Today he remains of Stonehenge can be visited in the fields of Witt shire England, where it has stood for nearly 5000 years. Stonehenge has three major areas starting with the inner circle, a smaller stone semicircle, and a larger more define horseshoe surrounding the two smaller areas. The inner part of Stonehenge dates back more than 5000 years ago.
No one really knows what it was used for; this is due to a great number of facts surrounding all of these ideas. Many ideas come up when talking about why this great structure was built along with an equal amount on who built it. The Druids is the most common response because the Druids inhabited most of the area in which Stonehenge is built. The Pagans are another common answer to this age old question because of the building structure of Stonehenge how it resembles a Pagan Cathedral. Whoever built Stonehenge, they were an extremely advanced society either on purpose or by complete fluke.
