Fires in the Sky
Other archaeologists indulge in limited speculation about what took place at Stonehenge in prehistoric times, in some cases because of a lack of imagination, but more often because of the professional constraints under which they are forced to operate.
There is intense rivalry in the world of archaeology and a huge amount of professional jealousy, especially as far as Stonehenge is concerned, so this unhealthy state of affairs frequently prevents intriguing and informed opinions being publicly aired, with the sad result that most people are left with a distinctly one-dimensional view of the monument and the people who built it.
As I’ve made clear elsewhere on this site, I’m prepared to consider an extremely wide range of aspects of Stonehenge. If you care to browse through the various categories on the right, you will find posts written on a broad range of subjects pertaining to Stonehenge, while I’ve also set up a page for news items about the ruins.
This page is for contributions about reported phenomena that aren’t directly related to Stonehenge or Silbury Hill, but which may possibly have some relevance to how our ancestors perceived or used these sites on occasion.
The photograph above is one I took at Stonehenge a few years ago during the course of a private visit. I’m afraid the details of the camera make, shutter speed and so forth have long been lost, so it will have to remain a curiosity. However, I saw nothing when I took the photograph, while I should also point out that the faint light at the top right of the photo is not the moon.
If you come across any links pertaining to hauntings, dowsing, ‘fires in the sky’ or anything else you feel may possibly be relevant to how our ancestors who built Stonehenge and Silbury Hill perceived the world around them, please feel free to write in with the relevant link and a brief explanation of why you think it would be of interest to other readers.
