The Great Stonehenge Hoax

13 Things that don’t make sense about Stonehenge (The Great Stonehenge Hoax)

Conundrum 1 – A Circular Monument

Aubrey’s Vision – the Great Stonehenge Hoax

Which could be called the Stonehenge ‘circular argument’?

The Problem

The traditional view of Stonehenge is of an entirely round monument with lintel stones completing the circle – but there is a massive problem with this theory (and it is ONLY a hypothesis – as nothing has ever been proven), for not all the expected stones holes are present, leading to some experts to suggest that the monument is, in fact, incomplete and was never finished.

Conundrum 2 – Summer Solstice

Stone me – are the druids looking the wrong way!

The Problem

When we think about Stonehenge, our mind relates to the mass gatherings of people that meet at the stones to celebrate the Summer and Winter Solstice, as if the monument was built for this single purpose.  But the structure was not made for this purpose, as shown by The Avenue and The ‘Heel Stone’( where the sun appears from behind it on mid-summers day), for it is not in the centre of the Avenue (as some imagine) and consequently, it has been tilted at an angle to meet the sun at a later date.

Conundrum 3 – Dating of the Monument

The best tool to dig ditches?

Could Antler Picks build these Monuments

The Problem

The first time real science could be used to date the ancient monument was when archaeologists   ‘carbon dated’ the antler picks found within the ditch of the site – as it was assumed that these were the tools used to dig the ditches, which they had been discarded as a ‘ritual’ to the bottom of the trench once it was completed.  Since then, archaeologists have attempted to justify these dates with all new finds on the site and have rejected as anomalies all other radio carn dates that don’t match its ‘established’ timescale.

Conundrum 4 – Totem Poles

Totem Poles... really?
Totem Poles… really?

Lots of cowboys (archaeologists) but no Indians (scientists)

The Problem

Four post holes were found in the old visitor’s car park at Stonehenge in 1966; these holes were excavated, and the pine charcoal found was dated (by observation) to be Neolithic, and the same date as the carbon-dated Antler picks found on the site some 50m away.   The problem arose when someone pointed out that Pine trees didn’t exist in the Stonehenge area in the Neolithic and that the post holes were filled in with ‘silt’ (from a river).  So they carbon-dated the pine to find out it was Meslithic some 5,000 before Stonehenge was supposedly built – so they came up with a story of ‘Totem Poles’ placed at random from a hunter-gather tribe, which had nothing to do with Stonehenge.

Conundrum 5 – Craig Rhos-Y-Felin

Stonehenge Quarry site – the Great Stonehenge Hoax

Archaeology’s inconvenient truth

The Problem

A recent paper by the University of London, Southampton, and Manchester; about the discovery of the Quarry that provided the ‘bluestones’ for Stonehenge at Craig Rhos-y-Felin caught the eye of the world by archaeologists announced that Stonehenge was initially built in Wales and was then transferred to Salisbury Plain 500 years later.  This amazing claim came about as only two of the Carbon Dates found on the site were within one thousand years of the Antler Pick dates that English Heritage holds so dear as the construction date.

Conundrum 6 – Moving the Bluestones

The Avenue at Stonehenge goes to the bottom of a valley

Water, water everywhere…… where did I put my boat?

The Problem

Archaeologists would have you believe that the Bluestones from Craig Rhos-Y-Felin were dragged two hundred miles overland to Stonehenge by large ‘work gang’ groups with long ropes or by ‘ox-cart’ routes mimicking the current M4.  However, both theories are highly flawed for many reasons, as shown by ‘experimental’ archaeologists attempting to drag stones across flat grassy surfaces with large groups of students.  For either of these ideas to be feasible, you need an even flat surface.  However, the prehistoric environment would have been 70% forest (woodland) and/or marshland and rivers, making such transportation impossible.

Conundrum 7 – Stonehenge Ditch

The Ditch Is really a series of pits!
The Ditch Is really a series of pits!

When is a ditch not really a ditch?

The Problem

The Stonehenge ditch is something the archaeologists don’t frequently (if at all) discuss or publicise as it is not a ditch as we commonly know it, which has baffled them since its first excavation.  The fact that this Ditch is ‘unique’ in the world, which you would imagine would be promoted as such, but they prefer to hide their lack of understanding of this feature and say nothing, for the Stonehenge Ditch is not a ditch but a series of pits with walls, seats and stone holes in the base that goes against the current theories about the site.

Conundrum 8 – The Stonehenge Layer

Chips are Us

The Problem

During the limited excavations at Stonehenge undertaken in the early parts of the last century, archaeologists were amazed by the number and scattering of the bluestones scattered and lying within the soil at Stonehenge. The number of stones was so great that the archaeologists called it the ‘Stonehenge layer.’ Chippings from the facing of the stones (particularly the larger Sarsen stones would be expected), but the more significant number of chippings came from the smaller, less frequent Bluestones, which has baffled the experts even today.

Conundrum 9 – Stonehenge’s Location

Location, Location, Location tells the story of Stonehenge

The Problem

Archaeologists fail to mention in their many publications and documentaries the mystery of the Location of Stonehenge in the landscape. One would imagine that such a massive undertaking and monument would be placed in the most prominent position in the landscape, such as on top of a hill.  The elevated position would help promote its magnificence and allow its astronomical function as it would be clear of trees and foliage, which currently it experiences during such times as the Solstice celebrations.

Conundrum 10 – Station Stones

Was it an astronomical observatory?

The Problem

In recent years the idea of Stonehenge as an astronomical observation point has become very popular with the ‘new age’ cult that looks at the stones as a ‘magical’ monument rather than a practical, functional site as the archaeologists fail to identify the exact reason and purpose successfully was built. So these ‘ideas’ have flourished to fill the void created by the ‘experts’ as they stutter for explanations.  Within this new age, the theory is the Station stones’ role that seems to line up with more astrological occurrences than the leading site.

Conundrum 11 – Periglacial Stripes

Periglacial Stripes OR Cart Tracks?

When was the wheel invented?

The Problem

Deep chalk cuts lines found under the surface of the Avenue, which lead from the Stonehenge monument site to ‘Stonehenge Bottom’ a valley in the NE of the landscape, had always created speculation, especially today as the ‘experts’ came up with a ludicrous argument that had caught the mainstream archaeologists imagination when they suggested that these were Periglacial Stripes from the last ice age, and this was the reason for our ancestors built Stonehenge at this place.  These lines are just a foot or so below the topsoil on a known roadway that dated back older than the B-road that passed the stones that have now been removed.

Conundrum 12 – The Slaughter Stone

“The Killing of great numbers of human beings”

The Problem

The slaughter stone has always been associated with mythology and speculation.  Some say it was where Druids sacrificed bodies to their gods (hence the name); others suggested that it is merely a fallen Sarsen stone that once stood upright as the entrance to the monument.  But recent scanning has shown that it was once sculpted to look ’lumpy and ‘rolling’,’ but why?

Conundrum 13 – The Builders / Woodhenge

I owe, I owe so off to work I go

The Problem

Stonehenge has also been a problem as there is no evidence of occupancy, and this causes problems as it is supposed to have been built by the first farmers of the Neolithic period (if the carbon dating is correct). The solution is that Durrington Walls and Woodhenge, so close to Stonehenge and houses, are reportedly found within the ‘henge’.  But there are problems with this ‘simplistic’ solution, the distance being the first, as you can’t see Stonehenge from Durrington Walls, and the second is, why build a time-consuming structure such as Woodhenge if you’re busy with building Stonehenge?
