Ok my first topik in a whery long time.

It seems that archeologist have unearthed the foundations of a mysterious ancient structure (maybe around 4000y old in southeast Wales) that may have been a ancient bridge leading to a artifical island.

Damn CSM, have not seen that smoky face in a long time.

So they think this might have been something like a floating bridge of huge planks? Leading to a floating island. At least 4000 years old? Interesting.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Could we be looking at what was the inspiration for Avalon? Shrouded in mist and water, but lost to the ages (ie it sunk).

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I think it was a bridge to link to the hatch on a UFO, they,d land on the water and people'd walk across the bridge.

Pretty interesting, even if it turns out to be something more typical.

I recall that something very similar to this was found in s.e. England a few years ago.  I'll have a search methinks.

You might enjoy this...
In 2010, the archaeologists found proof that Neolithic people were using paint to decorate their buildings as well as using stone “slates” as roofing material.
In 2011, radiocarbon dates from two areas of the site showed that the prehistoric complex on the Ness was in use for around 1,000 years — from at least 3200BC to 2300BC.
