could also the first or oldest stonehenge be even older than the present dating says. maybe they removed all evidence as they cleared the site for an even larger structure?
.
the first phase of construction at the stonehenge site was three 60ft (est.) wooden posts, at what is now the visitors centre car park. they were placed there around 10,000 yrs ago, in the mesolithic era WG, which puts them even further out from your dates i'm afraid.....

I hope you know that comet Encke returns every year, and sometimes closer tho earth than other times.

And sometimes too close for comfort.

The site is updated! The relevant tests have been kept off limit for the general public for 88 years. And still is off limit today.

Why do you say they are available?
.
WG, the site says that stonehenge has been closed off to the public at the summer solstice, which it was, between 1986 and 1999, but it was reopened to the public again in 2000. i've been there every year since it was reopened, and will be there again in two days time!
I don't know what tests you're referring to, but the site has been thoroughly excavated three times, the latest time 3-4yrs ago. there is nothing more can be really learned about stonehenge from archeology anymore, it's all been dug up and found!

I know it does Ab. I was referring to WG's 3000yr cycle, which would've missed the first phase of construction by 1000yrs!

you are partly right, it comes in the inner solar system every 3.3 years, every 33 years a major happening, and every 3000 years a civilisation destroyer event happens, twice not long after eachother. this also matches the largest storegga slide tzunami, which was two large ones 100years apart..

Yes, THREE+ years, not ONE year, sorry.

And I know about the coincidence of a pass-by of comet Encke and the Storegga Slide, and that's why I mentioned it.

Knowing comet Encke returns every 3.3 years, it could well be possible that comet Encke was responsible for people to start building Stonehenge.

At some point in time it came too close, and part of the swarm impacted on earth.

That is not too much of a stretch of our imagination, right?

this link really, really needs updating.
public access has been given to the stones for the last 13yrs, but it says we're still denied access!
I went and looked through that link I posted and it specifically says that it is only denied access on the Summer Solstice in fear of neo-pagans/druid getting out of hand and damaging the site.

Today, for fear of its desecration, Stonehenge is usually shut off to public access on midsummer's eve.
Can you point out the part you are talking about??

Have you gone up and touched any of the stones?

Image Depicting How Close You Can Get To Stones At Stonehenge During Public Opening Hours

Posted Image

During normal opening hours you cannot walk up to the stones themselves.

The nearest you will get to the stones is about 10 yards, the monument being roped off by a low barrier, (see picture below).

However it is possible to walk up to and among the stones at Stonehenge outside public opening hours. These are called Special Access visits. During these sessions of one hour duration, only 26 people are allowed onto Stonehenge going beyond the barriers and walking amongst the stones.

The fact that these Stonehenge Special Access visits are outside public opening hours mean that they are at dawn or evening. Given that London is 2 hours drive from London this obviously provides logistical issues in getting there.

The Special Access Visits are also immensely popular, demand far outstrips supply and they are often sold out months in advance.

I was driving at 9 PM yesterday and noted how the sun was still up and appeared much further north. 16 hour days in summer and 8 hour days in winter. The sun moving from north to south on the eastern horizon. This is what I think impressed these early sky watchers. Not the super rare comet in the sky. These people lived by the seasons and had feast and famine based on where the sun came up into the sky. That is a lot more everyday needful then a comet your GrGrGrGrGr Grand father might have seen.

I think it functions as a calender, but it is built as a public meeting place like a church. And people being people, they did pretty much what they do now. Drunken parties for the most part.

DC, I can't upload pics onto posts, but i'll change my avatar pic to one I took at last year's solstice party, and believe me, it's a LOT closer than ten yards!
(ie- taken from my spot at the R/H upright of the moonrise trilithon, where I sit every year!)
trust me, the information on that page is at least 13yrs out of date.....
