Scientists have uncovered the mystery of the translation of Stonehenge

Archaeologists from Britain gave his version of the history of Stonehenge, according to which he five thousand years ago was built in Wales, and subsequently moved to Wiltshire, where he remains to this day.

Experts suggest that if a stone monument in the past really served as a headstone, to the ancient Welsh he could imagine a sort of physical incarnation of their ancestors. “Submission to the Welsh about how to get on the road, were not such as we have,” suggests Parker-Pearson. He explained that in ancient cultures, ancestor worship was very common, so the aspiration of the people, changing place of residence, to take with them something that connects them to previous generations — not the most amazing rush, writes The Telegraph.

That last from Wales to Wiltshire in ancient times were like the stones of Stonehenge and the people who lived in these parts, according to the results of the study experts found the remains using modern technology.

In the past scholars have put forward many different versions of how and why Wiltshire was the stones of Stonehenge, some of which are believed to be originally part of the Preseli mountains in North-West Wales. One of the most daring of the proposals made at the end of last year, was that people could not participate in the transportation of these stones, and “delivered” to the current place they were in the result of the movement of glaciers.

Stonehenge is one of the most famous ancient buildings on earth, since 1986, he is included in the list of world heritage of UNESCO. Recently this design of huge rocks, many questions about the construction of which still remain a mystery, was also included in the list of objects to which climate change may threaten the destruction of or significant damage.
