Squaring The Circle

Post by simonwheeler »

Only just seen this: story about Avebury
"Archaeologists have found a striking and apparently unique square monument beneath the world famous Avebury stone circle in Wiltshire.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site, cared for by the National Trust, was built over several hundred years in the 3rd millennium BC and contains three stone circles – including the largest stone circle in Europe which is 330m across and originally comprised around 100 huge standing stones.

A research team led by the University of Leicester and University of Southampton used a combination of soil resistance survey and Ground-Penetrating Radar to investigate the stone circle."

Read something about this before, its an area across from the pub and the row of houses going east, and dowses a sort of square, which might have been the base of an old building there in the very distant past ? As to WHY the Avebury Stone Circle was built there, ask any dowser worth his salt, but dont mention earth energies, Avebury like Stonehenge and other special places will remain a mystery while people dont look further than with their eyes.
