Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

New Theories
 (голосов: 0)
In his book, The Stonehenge Solution, George Terence Meaden suggests that the monument was a pagan fertility Temple built on the site where Cosmic Consummation was commemorated. He says that the double horseshoe of Trilithons and bluestones represented the womb of the Mother Goddess, and the stone known as the altar stone, in effect the Goddess stone, stood on what was viewed as the centre of the world, the axis which united Heaven and Earth.

Dr Meaden's theory is that throughout June the sun shines onto the Heel Stone, sending the shadow like a giant phallus entering the circle and the horseshoe, representing the union of the Sky God with the Earth Goddess.

Brian Davidson, the former Stonehenge archaeologist, believes Stonehenge was built as a ruin. His theory is that the first Henge monument included a bank and ditch, the Aubrey holes and, in the centre, a sacred wooden building. When the Beaker people arrived they discovered rotting timbers from the sacred building and replaced them with the more enduring stones which have survived for more than four thousand years.
