The Shocking Truth About Stonehenge They Do Not Want You to Know (Sept 2017)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Located on England’s Salisbury Plain, 80 miles southwest of London, Stonehenge, the prehistoric monument featuring the remains of a circle of huge standing stones, has long fascinated archaeologists as well as the general public. Today, the ancient site—whose true purpose remains a mystery—receives more than a million visitors a year.

For decades the official Stonehenge guidebooks have been full of fascinating facts and figures and theories surrounding the world’s greatest prehistoric monument. What the glossy brochures don’t mention, however, is the systematic rebuilding of the 4,000 year old stone circle throughout the 20th Century.

This is one of the dark secrets of history archaeologists don’t talk about…and as you can guess, the Disney-owned History channel doesn’t talk about it either. And that’s the period of time they had the builders at Stonehenge recreate the most famous ancient monument in Britain as they thought it ought to look.

This picture shows workers on the site in 1901 in a restoration which caused outrage at the time but which is not referred to in official guidebooks.

Of course it would mean that Stonehenge, the crown jewel of Britain’s heritage industry, is not all it seems. I’m sure people would be surprised to know that much of what the ancient site’s millions of visitors see, only dates back dates back less than 50 years.

I know…it’s hard to believe…but here is the proof!

      The Henge was restored to near original by raising the stones from where they fell. What is not mentioned is that England was covered with Henges mostly broken up with fire and water and used in stone buildings, churches and walls. Stonehenge was missing half its monoliths due to farmers and what was raised up was done over cement to ensure they were stable. The real Henge was built several hundred years before and looked nothing like this one with wooden poles and the blue sarson stones only in a half circle.

      Now the Henge is classed as an ancient monument, and the UK’s biggest tourist attraction, this was not so in the 1950′s when the work was done and it was effectively a discovery at a time when 90% of the countries cities and industry was being rebuilt with the nation just coming out of the rationing period. Its raising was not even really noticed by the nation being a forgotten monument which was in the middle of an army training range and was about to have a road cut through it. It’s real champion was the National Trust which in the 1920′s onwards campaigned to save the site and is responsible for its preservation and restoration. By what I mean by restoration is that the remains were not left in situ but restored to how that times archeologists thought the site was originally. Today with better excavation, computer modelling and architects we know better that the site was rebuilt several times but to say it is FAKE is FALSE. (http://www.ukrivers.net/savestonehenge/1920sappeal.html) the original pamphlet shows the layout of the stones in 1929.

    • YellowRoseTx51

      Yep. Found it weeks ago. They actually built it from scratch. Those ‘old’ stones, were not old. There wasn’t anything on the ground, that was part of the ‘fake’. They built the entire thing, supplied the stones and aged it, all of this was filmed.

      • Ginger

        Yea, I saw on another site pictures of men stippling the (formerly solid and dark) stones to make them look old and worn. They did it with some kind of paint and cloth. The site says it was rebuilt in 1954, but 1958 could be true, as well. I didn’t know that people can no longer visit Stonehenge. Why go to the visitor’s center and not see the actual site? Who would bother to do that?

    • dennis48309

      It is alleged that Stonehenge was a landing pad for alien saucer craft.

      • dakota

        “alien”. Alien = the fallen angels. Yes. They do get around in saucer crafts and much much more.

        The more we sin, the more God lets more of them out the portals of hell onto the earth plain.
        In essence, we’ve brought them here ourselves. It’s God’s punishment to mankind.

        I’ve recognized ‘some’ of them in my daily life (and they know it). They immediately turn their face and eyes away from my gaze and some of them even grin. I’m the least likely type they would expect to know of them. They know I know, the minute I walk into a room. They shape shift to that of humans and even animals. I haven’t noticed them in animals yet, but I do check my dogs periodically.

        The fallen angel shapeshifters seem afraid I’d tell them out loud what they are (and others might hear it), so I don’t say anything. I just want to see and verify for myself.
        It’s enough for me to know that they know I know. It’s kept between me and them. After we leave, I do inform my spouse, quietly, but that’s it.

        You all have had interaction with them also, but you just don’t know it. You don’t know it because you are not paying full attention. You do not sense it either.

    • Pink Slime

      LOL! Just like the Loch Ness monster. It makes money so everybody keeps quiet about it. Besides, they say, we ought to have a little fun, can’t we??

      Yes, it’s OK till someone gets poked in the eye! :???:

    • desertspeaks

      why did you leave out that rebuilding stonehenge which took place over a long time, went on from 1901 – 1964.. ???

      • DK

        Largely because it destroys a false narrative, besides which I was in the University of Readings Cybernetics department in 1997 did a study of the sounds made by the inner stone circle to see the effects and what instruments were played in prehistoric times.

        The stones are real, every University possibly on the entire planet has absolutely no papers on fake henge(and the henge is part of a multi hectare site strewn with ancient monuments covering salisbury plain), what it does do with other ancient monuments is upset a religious point of view based on a 5000 year old earth.

    • Freeus

      Perhaps like the Georgia Guidestones -put their to deceive people in believing the “story” they want to place on us for their own selfish, monetarily reasons of depopulation being a “good” thing.. These people of dynasty wealth are satan’s soldiers of deceit.

      As they say, Que Bono, and nobody benefitted. The stones were re erected on MOD land where nobody could go.

    • unidentified

      looks like they were just adding on to what was already there :cool:

    • RAINSCRYPT

      Actually, the original stonehenge was erected to cast a distinctive shadow every September 23rd, displaying an enormous raised middle finger.

      The ancients referred to this shadow as “the flipped bird” cast off by the sun, and is resurrected by faithful theorists each and every September to commemorate man’s folly.

      Megalithic Madness – Was Stonehenge Built in the 1950s?

      If anybody takes the time to compare the older drawings and paintings of stonehenge against any modern photo, you can clearly see that in 1820 & 1835 when the British artist John Constable sketched the monument there were 6 horizontal lintel blocks in place on the outer circle of Sarsen stones and 2 horizontal lintel blocks still in place on the inner Horse Shoe Trilithons. A total of 8 horizontal lintels.

      Henry Browne’s Guidebook to Stonehenge and Avebury

      The EARLIEST GUIDEBOOK to Stonehenge was published in 1823 and was written by Henry Browne, the first full-time guardian. This position created to ensure the protection of the monument in response to increasing numbers of tourists the previous year, but Henry also took it upon himself to act as the site’s historian. He sold these guidebooks to visitors on site, as well as handmade models of the monument.

      An ART HISTORIAN’S SOLUTION TO the MYSTERY of Stonehenge: L O O K UP

      “The current theories about Stonehenge are based on looking across the ground, which is a modern, materialistic perspective,” he wrote in his new book “Realisation.”

      The people of 5,000 years ago would never have been so low-minded, Spalding argues.
      IN ANCIENT TIMES SPIRITUAL CEREMONIES WERE CONDUCTED ABOVE GROUND LEVEL, SO AS TO BE CLOSER TO the HEAVENS.
      He proposes that RITUALS at Stonehenge were performed in the same way — not among the STONES, but ON TOP of THEM.

      In “Realisation,” which comes out Monday, Spalding reimagines STONEHENGE as the FOUNDATION for …A VAST, CIRCULAR PLATFORM.
      He calls it an “ancient Mecca on stilts,” A RAISED ALTAR REACHED VIA RAMPS or STAIRS WHERE THOUSANDS of PREHISTORIC PEOPLES MIGHT HAVE WORSHIPED IN A MORE ELEVATED STYLE.

      [New maps reveal 17 previously unknown structures at Stonehenge]

      To support his theory, Spalding listed other examples of how ANCIENT CULTURES SCORNED the EARTH:
      Egyptian pharaohs and Chinese emperors were carried everywhere they went;
      THE THREE_TIERED ALTAR in Beijing; the mysterious Nasca lines in Peru, which can be viewed only from above.

      “All the GREAT RAISED ALTARS of the PAST SUGGEST that THE PEOPLE WHO BUILT STONEHENGE WOULD NEVER HAVE PERFORMED CELESTIAL CEREMONIES ON THE LOWLY EARTH,” he wrote.
      “THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN UNIMAGINABLY INSULTING to the IMMORTAL BEINGS, FOR IT WOULD HAVE BROUGHT THEM DOWN FROM HEAVEN to BITE THE DUST and TREAD IN THE DUNG.”

      En visioning an even bigger Stonehenge: New maps reveal 17 previously unknown structures at the site of the British monument

      Researchers discover HIDDEN Stonehenge ARCHEOLOGY

      Archaeological researchers in England have discovered evidence of NEW HIDDEN MONUMENTS NEAR the prehistoric site of STONEHENGE in southern England. (Reuters)

      Today, the word “Stonehenge” evokes an image of an eerie stone circle standing alone on a windswept plane.

      But new digital maps show the prehistoric MONUMENT didn’t always look that way. Those 24-foot-tall, 90,000-pound blocks we still find so impressive were actually PART of a MUCH LARGER COMPLEX of SHRINES —
      INCLUDING an EVEN-LARGER “SUPER HENGE” nearly half a kilometer in diameter.

      Using magnetometer readings, ground-penetrating radar surveys and 3D lasar scans, researchers were able to map 17 PREVIOUSLY UNKNOWN STRUCTURES THAT ERE ONCE NEIGHBOURS to STONEHENGE.
      (Courtesy of Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archeological Prospection and Virtual Archeology)

      The maps, which were published Wednesday, were composed using magnetometer measurements, ground-penetrating radar surveys and 3D laser scans by researchers at the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project.

      “It was like a large archaeological, geophysical circus come to town,” says project co-leader Vincent Gaffney, an archaeology professor at the University of Birmingham. “We had tractors pulling magnetometers, bikes, everything.”

      Driving this machinery across the field surrounding Stonehenge, archaeologists were able to “SEE THROUGH ” THE GROUND to detect traces of what once had been.
      Those traces appear as smudges on the landscape, looking more like microscope images of amoebas than the remains of a giant stone shrine.

      Magnetometers like the one being driven here by a member of the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project team are used to “see through” the ground to detect traces of ancient structures that once stood there. – of Geert Verhoeven/LBI for Archaeological Prospection & Virtual Archaeology)

      But Gaffney says that the use of multiple technologies let his team “squeeze the majority of information that is available” out of the landscape. And from a series of grainy images, archaeologists were able to reconstruct 17 distinct structures spanning an area the size of 1,250 soccer fields.

      Among the new finds are PREHISTORIC PITS THAT FORM “ASTROLOGICAL ALIGNMENTS”,
      A TIMBER STRUCTURE …PREDATING…STONEHENGE in which BODIES of the DEAD were RITUALLY “DEFLESHED”
      (creepily, the term means exactly what you think it does) AND of course, THE “SUPER HENGE” at NEARBY …DURRINGTON WALLS…BELIEVED to be THE LARGEST STONE CIRCLE in the WORLD.

      The discoveries should change the way we think about the area around Stonehenge, Gaffney says. Far from an isolated monument amid a desolate landscape…..
      THE MAPS PAINT a PICTURE of a BUSTLING COMPLEX, COMPLETE WITH PONDS, BOUNDARY DITCHES, AND SMALLER SUB-CHAPELS CLUSTERED AROUND THE MAIN STONE CIRCLE.

      Ride a cock Horse to Banbury Cross,

      To see a fine lady upon on a white horse,

      With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,

      She shall have music wherever she goes.

        STONEHENGE

        As Legend Has It

        The legend of King Arthur provides another story of the construction of Stonehenge. It is told by the twelfth century writer, Geoffrey of Monmouth, in his History of the Kings of Britain that Merlin brought the stones to the Salisbury Plain from Ireland. Sometime in the fifth century, there had been a massacre of 300 British noblemen by the treacherous Saxon leader, Hengest. Geoffrey tells us that the high king, Aurelius Ambrosius, wanted to create a fitting memorial to the slain men. Merlin suggested an expedition to Ireland for the purpose of transplanting the Giant’s Ring stone circle to Britain. According to Geoffrey of Monmouth, the stones of the Giant’s Ring were originally brought from Africa to Ireland by giants (who else but giants could handle the job?). The stones were located on “Mount Killaraus” and were used as a site for performing rituals and for healing. Led by King Uther and Merlin, the expedition arrived at the spot in Ireland. The Britons, none of whom were giants, apparently, were unsuccessful in their attempts to move the great stones. At this point, Merlin realized that only his magic arts would turn the trick. So, they were dismantled and shipped back to Britain where they were set up (see illus. at right) as they had been before, in a great circle, around the mass grave of the murdered noblemen. The story goes on to tell that Aurelius, Uther and Arthur’s successor, Constantine were also buried there in their time*.

      many old monuments represented calendars for keeping track of solstices and moon positions, some were multipurpose and people performed sacrifices, orgies, theater productions, auctions, whatever people at the time were into

        Yes you just certainly did not want to attend a ceremony to Odin in one, Druids are fairly recent and only date to late bronze age the Celtic pantheon requiring a select sacrifice of a few selected pure individuals from the elite of society did not seem to have caught on in the continent and was pointless even then since the gods were meant to have departed this earth to an inner one and never asked for them anyway.

      If the Brits don’t destroy Stonehenge, they will find their entire country UNDER WATER. Totally under water. England under water (prophecy).
