Stonehenge…something bizarre

June 28, 2010


Yes they are quite… but I’m not referring to them.

I visited Stonehenge last Summer Solstice and took photographs as  usual.

This is what i noticed…


Can somebody explain? I asked some  people there and nobody seemed to know… and there were no tourist guide in sight!

So… what do you think? Makes you think doesn’t it? It definitely made me think… thousands of years, supposedly preserved, untouched… hmmm….bizarre indeed.

    That concrete block was put into that stone in the 1950s to fill up a natural cavity in that particular Sarsen, while other restoration work was taking place (straightening some leaning stones, re-erecting a trilithon).

    Before it was filled in, the cavity was used by people to shelter from the rain (you could wander in amongst the stones at the time) and while they were huddled there they had a tendency to chip away a souvenir or two. It was thought at the time that this would ultimately make that stone unstable, so the cavity was filled in.

    Hope that answers your question.

    here’s my answer…
    my theory is, the outer layer of stonehenge is just build up over the thousand years and what the polished stone i took picture of is the original surface of the stones. i just can’t believe they really polished those stones like a marble and what great engineering! kudos to the ancient builders of stonhenge!
