The Magic Triangle of Singing Stones.

Guessing the Meaning of Stonehenge.”

I am charmed by the mysteries of ancient times when I am studying and guessing them. I learn about the past of ancient people, about the wonderful ties between them, about the unity of the world. Studying the past I can see today’s world. Among the monuments of antiquity I am interested in Stonehenge.

Meaning of Stonehenge is still a mystery. There are a lot of hypotheses: from the simplest to the most incredible.

I have studied different sources, read books in English, researched some Internet resources, summed the knowledge and built my own computer reconstruction of this monument. The attempts to find the explanations of the name there have led me to Armenian mountains. There are megaliths reminiscent of Stonehenge. I compared names Carahunge and Stonehenge and understood that both names may mean “Singing stones”. My conclusion is: ancient people treated to these facts with a great trembling so such a name could remain in a language during centuries. Thereby the magic triangle was formed at the end of my research.



Text of the Project.

I am charmed by the mysteries of ancient times when I am studying and guessing them. I learn about the past of ancient people, about the wonderful ties between them, about the unity of the world. Studying the past I can see today’s world. Among the monuments of antiquity I am interested in Stonehenge. But at the beginning of my project I couldn’t predict where my researchers would lead me.

Stonehenge is very old. We can’t find any mentioning it in the Greek and Roman literature. It’s impossible to find who was the first biographer of Stonehenge. All the information about its origin vanished into myths.

Meaning of Stonehenge is still a mystery. There are a lot of hypotheses: from the simplest to the most incredible.

Some researchers consider that Stonehenge is a giant astronomic lab but some say it was Druid’s temple and others believe it to be a giant navigation system which consists of isosceles triangles.

I believe that Stonehenge could carry out all these functions.

Who built this stone miracle? There are some opinions.

It could be built by magician Merlin. It is supported by the fact that at that time one mythical hero , king Arthur, and knights of the round table lived. The tables are flat stones which were erected during the building of Stonehenge. Stonehenge is a circle of these tables.

Some scientists confirm that such giant stones could be moved only by aliens. I think that Stonehenge was built by people. It is known where these stones were taken from.

Erection of stones went in 4 stages. Then a flat stone was placed on the top of so-called table.

Stonehenge could be a Druid’s temple or a tomb [hello_html_m13949d4e.png] of the ancient pagan queen Boadisea or a huge observatory.

Now I’ll present my computer reconstruction of the monument and try to prove that Stonehenge could perform all these functions at the same time and in turn.

In 1800 BC Stonehenge looked as it is known to us nowadays. A big ring formed by large trimmed blocks of grey sandstones 8,5 m high arose. Inside this ring there is a construction of horseshoe-shaped form.

There were mysterious holes in stones of Stonehenge. Remember this fact. In 3 kilometers from the stone building there is a resembling construction made of wood. I present 3 variants of reconstruction of wood henge . Let’s compare the names. In ancient times the building was named henge and stone and wood meant materials. So the main meaning is in the word henge. We decided to try to decode the word .But how could we do this? Maybe other ancient stones can help me. To look for the answer we moved to Erevan and found the antique stone building Carahunge. There are holes in 82 huge stones. It was necessary to watch the sun and stars for Ancient astronomers. Except huge stones there is a temple of the sun and other buildings in Carahunge. These megalithes were used for different purposes: for astronomical watching, for religious actions, for burials.

All facts coincide: the time of building, the purpose, the character of architecture. So it is possible that the names coincide too. English and Armenian are languages of the same Indo-European group of the languages. Some words are close by sounding.(light-luis). The name of the Armenian monument is a singing stone. Conclusion is Stonehenge is singing stones.

Theoretically it is possible because there were holes in the stones and wind produced sounds as singing.

Probably, the singing stones had strong psychological influence on people as it was used in the name. There were some other cases in the history. Our research led us to Ancient Egypt to colossuses of Memnona. They were left from the huge temple of Aminhotep the3. In 27 b.C. the building was damaged during the earthquake and stones began to sing. A lot of people started visiting it. It happened because of the cold air warmed in the morning and passed through the holes and let out sounds as a horn does. This striking effect left a track in the name and everybody knows this monument as colossuses of Memnona but not as sculptures of Aminhotep. But it is not the end.

I noticed that if you draw a triangle of singing stones, then between Stonehenge and Carahunge there are 10 degrees in width and from Carahunge to colossuses there are the same 10 degrees.

Follow out thought: We remembered a fantastic theory of Tom Brooks that Stonehenge is a part of a grandiose navigational system consisting of isosceles triangles, where the top of each showed the next point. Does the magic triangle contact with the Russians in XXI century? It was found that it does. A sphinx on the quay of Neva is from the temple of Aminhotep the 3.

So our magic triangle is locked. It seems Ancient stones began to speak and told us their story.

I suppose that my work will make the students to reflect and will help them to see the unity of our world. I think that my work will also be interesting for pupils from the English speaking countries because Stonehenge is situated in Great Britain, therefore I have translated my project into English.
