Archaeologists have just recognized the Stonehenge of Scotland, which has disappeared for almost 5,000 years. Buzz60 Tony Spitz has detailed information.
Although Stonehenge may be the most well-known European megalith, it is far from the only one: there are about 35,000 of these mysterious stone structures across the continent
Now a new study shows that ancient culture is what is now the fact that the Brittany region in north-western France was able to build these structures and monuments about 7000 years ago. from there through sea routes across Europe in the next 1000 years.
In ten years, Schulz Paulson has developed a "megalithic evolution", where radio hydrocarbons were found in over 2000 historic sites across Europe. "So we could show that the earliest megaliths came from north-west France and spread along the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts in three main stages," the study
wrote. Ancient French people may not have built Stonehenge, they could inspire – and according to his idea – the people who created it.
If so, then such marine marine skills and technologies can be much more advanced than previously thought.

The famous Stonehenge is one of the last megaliths created, perhaps about 2500 B.C.
Other theories said that they could have originated in the Middle East, or even possibly independently, but this new study seems to be guiding these ideas
"This shows that Brittany is the origin of the megalithic phenomenon in Europe," The University College London Archaeologist and Stonehenge Michael Parker Pearson said Science magazine.
The results were published on Monday in the Proceedings magazine of the National Academy of Sciences.
