New Study: Was Stonehenge created by French sailors?

The thriller of Stonehenge could also be solved, due to a brand new research that reveals the enduring rock construction could have originated from a single hunter gatherer society in France 7000 years in the past.

The iconic prehistoric rock construction in Wiltshire, England has been baffling the world for generations as folks battle to determine how the large rock formations appeared within the UK.

A brand new study suggests the spectacular ring of stones was created due to a hunter gatherer society in Brittany in northwest France, which first beginning constructing the spectacular constructions and monuments 7,000 years in the past.

These societies then unfold their megalith constructing tradition through sea routes round Europe over the following 1,000 years. The analysis reveals the folks of that point had way more superior maritime abilities than beforehand identified.

Originally, anthropologists believed the megaliths originated within the Mediterranean or the Near East. More latest theories say they had been first invented in six completely different locations round Europe and had been impartial from one another. Last yr, a research steered the Stonehenge stones got here from Wales, as did the individuals who could have constructed it.

Study creator Bettina Schulz Paulsson of the University of Gothenburg spent 10 years learning over 2410 historic websites round Europe to create a “megalith evolution.” She used radiocarbon courting on human stays buried on the websites to create the archaeological timeline.

“Everyone told me, ‘You’re crazy, it can’t be done,’” Schulz Paulsson told Science journal. “But I decided to do it anyway.”

The outcomes had been printed Monday within the peer-reviewed journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

“This demonstrates absolutely that Brittany is the origin of the European megalithic phenomenon,” Stonehenge specialist Michael Parker Pearson advised Science journal.
