Archaeology & History

Early Celtic 'Stonehenge' located

An ancient Celtic calendar construction has been found in the royal tomb of Magdalenenberg, Black Forest.
The order of the burials around the tomb was found to coincide exactly with the star constellations of the Northern hemisphere with a burial mound oriented towards the moon. Celtic constructions of this nature have been documented for thousands of years.
Whereas Stonehenge was orientated towards the sun, the more then 100 meter width burial mound of Magdalenenberg was focused towards the moon.

What I heard about the standing stones such as Stonehenge is that they were there long before the Celts were and according to Celtic mythology they were left there by some mythical race before the Celts.

I had to google lunar standstills--cool! 18.6 year intervals! 618 BCE (before the common era) Celtic history and artifacts seem to keep getting earlier.
