Archeologists have discovered two new pits at the mysterious Stonehenge site that shed potential light on its ritual use. The pits are aligned in a celestial pattern, suggesting that they could have been used for sunrise and sunset rituals; the pits pre-date the construction of the famous rock formations more than 5,000 years ago.
The discovery was the handiwork of a group called the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project, which has been working at the Stonehenge site since last year. The project's leaders are an international team of archeologists who've been using geophysical imaging techniques to develop a profile of the site's ritual uses.

The question is who built it. The Celts worshiped in Oak groves - not stone circles. According to their mythology it was built by a race a giants long before the Celts were here. Science has confirmed that it does predate the Celts. Besides, the Celtic calendar like so many other native cultures is lunar not solar, which Stonehenge is definitely connected to the later (solar).

The culture who developed Stonehenge was definitely pre-Celtic and but the Celt worshiped the Sun as well as the Moon.  The town of Lugdunum, today Lyon in France was build in homage of the Celtic God Lug. With Belenus they were both solar Gods.

Virtually every square meter in a five square mile area surrounding the world most famous pre-historic monument will be examined geophysically to a depth of  up to two metres, he says.

I find that pretty impressive.

Gavin Mendez's new book on Atlantis deals with this far greater history of Stonehenge.  I was fascinated when I saw that dna showed that there was a central spot off the coast of Ireland (where the Rockall Rise is located now under water) and spread out in an eastward fan to Germany and Turkey.  Salt mines for salting food to make it last so trade can be RESUMED.

To add my opinion. I thought they discovered that it was a temple of the dead? Like, they discovered skeletal remains of people who were sacrificed, namely a hunter who was shot dead with a flint arror through the skull. Didn't they also discover that when sound is repeated and played in harmony inside the stones, you begin to enter a trance like state? This is from Mystery Quest. Seemed alot more logical and had some good evidence than Monster Quest, so I can only assume it'd be partially true.

So given this. People worshipped the sun and or stars. And as the ages progressed, they felt the need to sacrifice humans to the sun in tribute or something. Then when they don't get some sort of recognition from their "god", the sun, they get the stones (i know it's probably not like this, given the stones were from miles away) and make a halluconagenic circle to try and get visions or to be with their god?

My User Name is a loving memory of how much I want to know about the worlds secrets, that I forgot to look up the definition of "skeptical" before I made my account.

Here is another article to add more information to the OP:


Stonehenge Reveals New Clues of Ancient Worship
Stonehenge may have been a place for sun worship long before the  iconic  stones were erected more than 5,000 years ago, according to  archaeologists who are carrying out the biggest-ever virtual excavation.

Using noninvasive technologies such as  ground-penetrating radar and  geophysical imaging, a team from the University of Birmingham's IBM  Visual and Spatial Technology Centre, known as VISTA, and the Ludwig  Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual  Archaeology in Vienna, discovered evidence of two huge pits positioned  on a celestial alignment at Stonehenge.

Measuring more than 16 feet across and at least 3 feet deep, the pits  lie within the Cursus, a large enclosure north of Stonehenge, which  predates the prehistoric monument by up to 500 years.

"This is the first time we have seen anything quite like this at  Stonehenge," said project leader Vince Gaffney, an archaeologist from  the University of Birmingham. ... (snip) ...
