A study of megalithic structures

Of great importance in the study of the history of our ancestors is a study of megalithic structures. A huge range of location: from the southern end and Oceanites

Dolmens

Of great importance in the study of the history of our ancestors is a study of megalithic structures. A huge range of location: from the southern tip of ocean and Islands of Asia to the westernmost point of Europe, the continental America. The most famous are the Indian ocean Islands, Easter island, the Caucasus, Stonehenge, Karnak, Baalbek, Malta, Neal and Machu Picchu. Pyramids and dolmens, menhirs and underground temples, avenues and dolmens, galleries and roads. Different cultures, different people, different era and different technology. Throughout this vast territory only the dolmens are common, having a similar appearance, because the consideration of the megaliths in this article is to describe the culture of the dolmens.

We turn first to the most truthful sources of information. Great Encyclopedic Dictionary: “a Dolmen (from Breton. tol – table and men – stone) megalithic. the structure in the form of a large stone box, covered with a flat plate.

Stone age – it’s not what you think

All of us at school telling – stone age people were wild prosimians. They lived in caves and hunted mammoths, sharpened their stone axes and feared forces of nature. Fear the savages came up with a religion and began to worship false gods… you know the rest all by yourself. But I have to disappoint you, dear fans, of the classic story. Because in this era were built on the planet’s most mysterious buildings – the MEGALITHS, why culture began to be known as megalithic. What is it? Megaliths are religious buildings from giant stone slabs. The most famous building Stonehenge. Although throughout all the land of such complexes ponastroila were many. In addition to circular structures laid out mazes, spirals, or set single stones (menhirs), gave the whole hectares.

A special place is occupied dolmens is a kind of stone “boxes”, carved with mysterious symbols on the walls. Scientists still argue about it? Although human remains in them were not, historians insist that this is the burial chamber. Modern physics has put forward the version that the dolmens may be batteries of unknown energy. For good reason the people around them are healed…

Now, sit down, gentlemen… All megalithic structures located on a single line (you can call it the Meridian) and carry a mathematically coded message about the location of planetesimal in the Universe. This is the conclusion of several scientists, and particularly interesting is the phenomenon described in books by Erich von Däniken. This theory was engaged Ernst Muldashev in the book “In search of the city of the Gods”. Continue reading

Gothic in medieval Western Europe

The origin of the term “Gothic”

The word comes from Italian. “unusual, barbaric, the barbarians” (the historical Goths, this style has nothing to do), and was initially used as a profanity. For the first time the notion in the modern sense used by Giorgio Vasari in order to separate the Renaissance from the middle Ages. Gothic completed the development of European medieval art, which arose on the basis of the achievements of Roman culture and the Renaissance (Renaissance) art of the middle ages was considered “barbaric”.
