A massive megalithic site was discovered near Stonehenge this week, buried under the ground, just one mile from the world-famous rock formation in Wiltshire, England. The researchers found roughly 90 large stones using remote sensing and geophysical imaging technology.
“These latest results have produced tantalizing evidence of what lies beneath the ancient earthworks at Durrington Walls. The presence of what appear to be stones, surrounding the site of one of the largest Neolithic settlements in Europe, adds a whole new chapter to the Stonehenge story,” Nick Snashall, National Trust archaeologist for the Avebury and Stonehenge world heritage site said.
This could end up being one of the largest sites of its kind all throughout Europe.
“What we are starting to see is the largest surviving stone monument, preserved underneath a bank, that has ever been discovered in Britain and possibly in Europe,” Bradford University archeologist Vince Gaffney said.
Scientists are still baffled about Stonehenge and are equally as perplexed with the new structure, although the prevailing theory is that it is a ritual site of some sort, many alternative researchers disagree.
Mainstream researchers say that the site is only a few thousand years old, but researchers like Graham Hancock believe that the site is much older.
Speaking to his Facebook page this week, Hancock said:
“The past is unveiling itself and in the process reveals further clues to a lost civilization. It’s interesting to read the press on the recent discovery of extensive additional buried megaliths in the vicinity of Stonehenge in England. The archaeologists quoted, and the journalists who wrote the reports, all take it for granted that the newly discovered site must be “4500 years old” — i.e. the same date-range that mainstream archaeology likes to ascribe to Stonehenge itself. But the lesson of the giant pillars of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, deliberately buried more than 10,000 years ago and only rediscovered in the 1990’s, is that the origins of megalithic architecture are far older and far more mysterious than we have been taught. There are already indications that the true story of Stonehenge as a sacred site extends back at least 10,000 years and I predict that the newly discovered megaliths will add more mystery to this emerging picture”
