There has always been speculation about the designers and builders of the circles and standing stones in Europe and Britain. Was this knowledge brought intact from the Middle or Far East? There is evidence here that suggests otherwise. The whole concept of using the movement of the sun as a precise calendar might have originated right here in Britain.
“Ballochroy is a very convincing astronomical site, especially in the way in which the stones simultaneously indicate clear alignments for both midsummer and midwinter – the key points in any solar calendar. But the stones themselves cannot tell us that any of this precise, regular observation was ever carried out. It remains an assumption, though a likely one, that megalithic observers were attempting to establish a calendar accurate to within a day, requiring such a detailed interest in the sun’s motions.” From Evan Hadingham’s Circles and Standing Stones, Anchor Books edition: 1976.
No longer an assumption, the calendars testify to the fact that the megalithic observers were successful and did, in truth, establish a calendar accurate to within a day.
We might never truly know whether the designers were local or foreign to Britain. What we do know is that designing and building calendars with primitive tools, required genius. Civilisation, it can be said, is built upon such genius, dedication and persistence.
These stone structures were built to last and because of this, crucial knowledge was passed down to future generations. Everything from a simple coffee in the morning to space exploration, testifies to this. Sadly, with the advent of written language, these structures fell into disuse and disrepair. Even so, after 5000 years and with little more than holes in the ground, scattered stones and a few remaining megaliths, we are able to reconstruct and understand their calendars.” Extract from Stonehenge: Times Square BC
