Development of the European Megalithic Culture


Title: Re: European Megalithic Culture
Post by: Robin Barquenast on July 23, 2007, 09:37:29 pm
There are a number of areas in Europe with megalithic monuments from the Neolithic periods. The earliest of these constructions, found in Brittany and the Iberian Peninsula, are reckoned to date to around 4800 BC. Contrary to 19th and early 20th scholarly opinion, there never was a unified Megalithic culture. Most archaeologists today see a number of places were different types of megalithic structures were built independently of each other (Southern Spain, Portugal, Brittany, Atlantic Britain, Scandinavia and Northern Germany).

Originally consisting of fairly simple structures like Dolmens, megalithic design later includes the stone rows of Brittany and the hundreds of stone circles of the British Isles, of which Stonehenge is the most famous. Many of these constructions have been shown to have significant astronomical alignments, though the function of these still remains mysterious – a fact that has not prevented endless theorising. Whilst a number of intriguing and distinctive artistic symbols have been discovered, it is virtually certain that no proper form of writing existed.

Types of megaliths

The most common type of megalithic construction in Europe is the dolmen – a chamber consisting of upright stones (orthostats) with one or more large flat capstones forming a roof. Many of these, though by no means all, contain human remains, and it is debatable whether use for burial site was their primary function. Though generally known as dolmens, many local names exist, such as anta in Portugal, stazzone in Sardinia, hunnebed in Holland, Hünengrab in Germany, dys in Denmark, and cromlech in Wales.

Another type of megalithic monument that occurs throughout the culture area is the single standing stone, or menhir. Some of these have been shown to have an astronomical function as a marker or foresight, and in some areas long and complex alignments of such stones exist – most famously at Carnac in Brittany.

In the British Isles the best-known type of megalithic construction is the stone circle, of which there are hundreds of examples, including Stonehenge and Avebury. These too display clear evidence of astronomical alignments, both solar and lunar. Stonehenge, for example, is famous for its solstice alignment (though whether this was originally intended to mark the winter solstice, rather than the summer, is open to question). Examples of stone circles, though rare, are also found in Continental Europe

Other structures

Associated with the megalithic constructions across Europe there are often large earthworks of various designs – ditches and banks, broad terraces, circular enclosures known as henges, and frequently artificial mounds such as Silbury Hill in England and Monte d’Accoddi in Sardinia. Sometimes, as at Glastonbury Tor in England, it is theorised that a natural hill has been artificially sculpted to form a maze or spiral pattern in the turf.

Spirals were evidently an important motif for the megalith builders, and have been found carved into megalithic structures all over Europe – along with other symbols such as lozenges, eye-patterns, zigzags in various configurations, and cup and ring marks. Whilst clearly not a written script in the modern sense of the term, these symbols no doubt conveyed meaning to their creators, and are remarkably consistent across the whole of Western Europe.

Distribution and development

The distribution of megalithic constructions strongly indicates that this culture was spread by seafarers. With the earliest sites found on the Atlantic seaboards of Brittany and Portugal dating to about 4800 BC, the techniques of building and other cultural traits gradually spread to other coastal areas, thence inland via the major river systems. Archaeologists usually distinguish five geographical regions within the megalithic culture that display certain local characteristics in addition to sharing in the general continent-wide trends. These are the North West Group (north Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and Denmark), Far West Group (British Isles), Centre West Group (north-west France), South West Group (Iberia), and Mediterranean Group (Malta, Sardinia, Corsica, the Balearics, and surrounding coasts). Megalithic constructions

of a later time, are in Thrakia and Southers Russia too. As the people who created the megalithic culture have left no decipherable records, their linguistic affiliation remains completely obscure. It has recently been argued, however, that the spread of Indo-European languages in Europe coincided with the introduction of agriculture during the Neolithic period (see Anatolian hypothesis). If so, the megalith builders would have spoken an early dialect of Indo-European, some terms from which may survive in river names and other geographical features across Western Europe. The megalithic culture remained at the Neolithic stage until the so-called Bell-beaker explosion from around 2500 BC, which ushered in the Chalcolithic period – an early phase of the Bronze Age. It was this era that witnessed the full flowering of megalithic design in such areas as the British Isles with their stone circles, and Brittany with its alignments.

Modern myths

Being an ancient and little-understood civilisation, the megalithic culture has attracted numerous myths over the centuries. The undoubted astronomical function of many of the structures has in recent times engendered speculation about ley-lines and mysterious earth-energies, whilst the monuments themselves have been appropriated by many different New Age groups for their own purposes. Some, such as the Rollright Stones in England, have even been purchased by Neopagans. There have also been theories connecting the megalithic culture with the legend of Atlantis.

Nine Ladies

Nine Ladies ( 53°10′5″N, 1°37′44″W) is a Bronze Age stone circle located on Stanton Moor, Derbyshire, England. Part of the Peak District National Park, the site is owned by English Heritage and is often visited by tourists and hill walkers. Druids and pagans occasionally celebrate summer solstice there.

There are nine surviving stones in the circle, but excavations have shown that there were once at least ten and possibly eleven. The small "King Stone" lies forty metres from the circle and is clearly visible from it.

Successful campaign to protect it

The site has been the focus of a long-running environmental protest.

In 1999 Stancliffe Stone Ltd submitted a planning application re-open two dormant quarries (Endcliffe and Lees Cross) on the wooded hillside beside Stanton Moor. The proposed quarry was only 200 m from Nine Ladies, on land owned by Haddon Hall estate and leased to Stancliffe stone.

A local protest group SLAG (Stanton Lees Action Group) was set up to oppose the quarry. The group was joined by environmental protestors who set up a long-running and controversial protest camp and they built many tree houses which are hard to evict. They defied a court eviction order in February 2004, and continue to remain there.

In 2004 a High Court classified the two quarries as dormant. This decision was appealed and the court of appeal was upheld in June 2005. This means that the quarries cannot re-open until the Peak District National Park Authority agrees on a set of working conditions for them.

The Bridestones

The Bridestones consist of a chambered cairn, built in the Neolithic Stone Age, near Congleton, Cheshire, United Kingdom. In 1764, the cairn was 100 metres long and 11 metres wide; it contained three separate compartments, of which only one remains today. The remaining compartment is 6 metres long by 2.7 metres wide, and consists of vertical stone slabs, divided by a now-broken cross slab. The cairn originally had a stone circle surrounding it, with four portal stones; two of these portal stones still remain.

The site is protected as a monument of national importance, according to the Ancient Monuments Acts 1913-1953.

The origin of the cairn's name is unclear. Once legend says that a recently married couple were murdered at the location, and the stones were laid around their grave. Another possibility is that they are named for Brigantia. Alternatively, the Old English word for "birds" was "briddes"; the stones in their original form could have resembled birds, giving rise to "Briddes stones".

Condition in 1766
The state of the site was recorded in 1766 by Henry Rowland in Mona Antiqua Restaurata.


“ There are six upright free stones, from three to six feet broad, of various heights and shapes, fixed about six feet from each other in a semicircular form, and two within, where the earth is very black, mixed with ashes and oak-charcoal. It is apprehended the circle was originally complete, and twenty-seven feet in diameter; for there is the appearance of holes where stones have been, and also of two single stones, one standing ecst of the circle, at about five or six yards distance, and the other at the same distance from that.
A little west of the above stones are two rough, square tapering stones 4ft. 3in. broad and 2ft. thick, standing at the north and south angles of a kind of artificial stone cave or chest. This is paved with broken pieces of stones about 2 1/2 inches thick, overlaying some pounded whitestone about six inches deep; two inches of the upper part of which are tinged with black, supposed from ashes falling through the pavement which was covered with them and oak-charcoal about two inches thick, along with several pieces of burnt bones. The sides of the cave, if I may so call it, were composed of two unhewn stones about 18 feet in length, six in height and fourteen inches thick at a medium. Each of them is now broken in two.

There is a partition stone across the place, about five feet and a half high, and six inches thick. A circular hole is cut through this stone, about nineteen inches and a half in diameter.

There remains another place of the same construction but smaller and without any inward partition, about 55 yards distance from this. It is 2 1/2 yards long, 2 1/2 feet broad and 3ft. 2in. high. There is also part of another.

There was a large heap of stones that covered the whole, 120 yards long and 12 yards broad. These stones have been taken away from time to time by masons and other people for various purposes. And in the year 1764 several hundred loads were carried away for making a turnpike road about 60 yards from this place, which laid it open for examination.

Subsequent destruction

The largest single ransacking of the monument was the removal of several hundred tons to construct the nearby turnpike road. Stones from the monument were also taken to build the nearby house and farm; other stones were used in an ornamental garden in Tunstall Park. The holed stone was broken some time before 1854; the top half was found replaced in 1877, but was gone again by 1935.

While the southern side of the main chamber was originally a single, 18ft long stone, it was split in 1843 by a picknicker's bonfire. Of the portal stones, only two remain, one of which is broken and concreted back together. This was reputedly caused by an engineer from the Manchester Ship Canal, who used the stone to demonstrate a detonator.

Excavations of the site were done by Professor Fleur of Manchester University in 1936 and 1937, with the aim of restoring the site as much as possible to its former condition.

Brownshill Dolmen

The Brownshill Dolmen (Dolmain Chnoc an Bhrúnaigh in Irish) is situated 3 km east of Carlow Town in County Carlow, Ireland.

It lies just off the R726 regional road and is clearly visible from the road.


Title: Re: European Megalithic Culture
Post by: Robin Barquenast on July 23, 2007, 10:35:47 pm
History

It was built between 4000 and 3000 BC by some of the earliest farmers to inhabit the island. It is also known as Brownshill Portal Tomb, so-called because the entrance to the burial chamber was flanked by two large upright stones (orthostats) supporting the granite capstone, or roof, of the chamber. The capstone is thought to have been covered by an earthen mound and a gate stone blocked the entrance.

At Brownshill both portal stones and the gate-stone are still in situ; the capstone lies on top of the portals and gate-stone and slopes to the ground away from the entrance. Not much additional information is available on Brownshill because it has never been excavated.

The capstone at Brownshill, weighing an estimated 150 tonnes, is the largest discovered in Europe.

Thanks, Unknown! I have been working on this thread for months.

Rockessence, the Vancouver megalith is a surprise to me, too.  I didn't know there were any megaliths in the western hemisphere that resembled the ones in Europe.  A worldwide megalithic culture perhaps?

What a joy these are to see!  You know, in looking at those of the style just above this post.... one wonders if they are intended as a location for a funeral pyre.... as was performed in the most ancient times, before body burial.....the ashes then taken to the "family tree" to be placed in amongst the roots, so that the spirit could then process upwards through the sap to the leaves and then be released up to the sky.


Title: Re: European Megalithic Culture
Post by: Robin Barquenast on November 06, 2007, 03:13:23 pm
Rockessence, it is highly possible that they were intended for a funeral pyre.  However, what I find most interesting is that they are all done in the same style, whether it be Beljium, France, England and Corsica.  Did they all have the same purpose, no matter where they were?  It is hard to know for sure.  If they did, the people who built them certainly got around quite a bit, didn't they?


Title: Re: European Megalithic Culture
Post by: rockessence on November 06, 2007, 03:23:44 pm
Well if they all stemmed from an "original" human source, such as indicated in the Bock saga, then it is not surprising that they might be that similar. 


Title: Re: European Megalithic Culture
Post by: Robin Barquenast on November 06, 2007, 09:18:57 pm
It is hard to figure out how old they are, though. They don't have to be the same age to have all come from the same culture.  Does the Bock Saga specifically mention using rock as a funeral pyre? 


Title: Re: European Megalithic Culture
Post by: rockessence on November 06, 2007, 09:20:57 pm
Not specifically those structures, but they have been doing that since before the first Ice-time ...more than 55 million years ago!

Wow, Robin do you think this is related to stonehenge eH''

Ths is the works of Europes oldest civilisation (see own thread).

The whole thing started off with a small group of caucasians that came out of the paleolithic (ice-age)  10.000 years ago. Two tousand years later they had branched to most of the Eurasian continent - and by 7.500 BP they had made series of "Mega-liths" (mega=big, lith=stone).

Thus they are called the European Megalitic Culture - or Civilisation.

Obviously these are the pioneers of the refined masonry needed to build ziggurats, pyramids, henges, temples and palaces. Neither Stonhenge, nor Manchu Pinchu or Nan Madol came out of the blue.

The European megaliths started the show - during whats called "Megalithic time.
It started 10.000 yrs ago - culminating 8.000 yrs ago, as the "large wood-culture" started to take over in Northern Eurasia.

Though, at that time the skills and capabilities started to show - along with agriculture - in central palaces of all the maor cultures in the world.

This web-site still is the best one about the real people called Atlanteans - right?!   8)

Of course, it is all the same culture. I am surprised that isn't more obvious to people.

Independent thought isn't all that common. When it is not lectured and stated in the cyclopedias most people don't dear to think things through.

Then you have the established academians that are supposed to "hold the truth" about these matters. Presented to a substantiallly new thougth they will normally react (rather than respond) against it - executing vulgar antagonism under the flag of "critisism". Ultimaely there is the row of bigots called "sceptics" - who cultivate their fear of the unknown like a cheap Hollwood producer - presenting retarded point-of-views and counter-productive analyzis in order to serve what they think is  "established science". Driven by an underlying fear of shortness they present "critical analyzis" based on plain reductionism to reveal what they already have termed "false teachings". The basic motivation of these mediocre scientists is often nothing but to profit socially and thus materially - by high-jacking the term "scientific" and abuse the scientific traditions into sheer reductionism and vanity - to gain "status" within the club of funded establishments and get a seat among "the fittest" - as amoeba in a darwinistic theatre of reptiles.

When sciene took the place of religion - to define the meanin and/or purpose of life - the old Pharisees quickly changed place, profession and attitude - to become part of the new priesthood that are now singing the unreflected refrains of "evolution", "relativity" and "Rift valley" to explain the history of mankind.
 
Since we all areunder the influence of the concepts and genious of modern science we a also exposed to the misconcepts and the populism of the same culture. That's why so many people are unable to think by themselves - and even the most obvious will avoid their attention, as long as it challenge their preconceived concepts. Since their independent thougth and natural awareness is tired down by the endless chewing of academic terms, forms and formats the modern scientists are often unable to perceive, comprehend, analyze and evaluate any issue ouside the rigidity of his faculty. 

That's some of the reasons why to many people cant see a megalith before they are "properly ensured" by their professor that they actually face one...!

Please allow some quotes from a poor old idealist;

Quote
"So many people today — and even professional scientists — seem to me like someone who has seen thousands of trees but has never seen a forest."

"Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions."

"Great ideas have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly."

http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Einstein   8)

Please keep up your good work - these comments were made to articulate why your efforts in illustrating the origin of stone masonry, megalithic architecture and "western civiization" - are much more than "relevant"; they do indeed matter!

Hi Boreas,

Well, the problem with acamdemia is that they tend to be so braiwashed by the professors who have established their dogma (some of it very old and uncorrected) that they do not allow for independent thought. Everything has to be looked at with new eyes.  We have to realize how they came to their conclusions in the first place and judge their methodology a bit more skeptically. 

The one thing that would help make the single culture a bit better would be if a form of writing was discovered that linked all the megaliths together.  Of course, maybe one wasn't developed at that point.

I would imagine, these stones were packed with dirt around them and covered' like to a mound, then the stones were draged over top of the mound then the dirt was dug out? Could this be how Stonehenge was constructed?

Yes - it could. There's hardly any other safer or easier way to do that.

To sum up the last news on Stonehenge - it starts getting somewhere;

9.200 years old civilisation

The area of Wiltshire hills was inhabitated already 9.200 years ago. Agriculture seem to have developed in the area some 8.000 years ago.

The higths beame a ritual place for pyrneral fires. The remains have made present archeologists call the hill a “royal cemmentary”.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7426195.stm


The Amesbury Archer:


Finally – 4.300 years ago came the “Amesbury archer” – who brougth metal-tools with him – ready to make a new and sizeible monument; the present stone-ring.

http://www.wessexarch.co.uk/projects/amesbury/introduction.html

At the very same time the famous stones of Stonehenge starts to arrive at the sacred burial hill;

http://atlantisonline.smfforfree2.com/index.php/topic,12683.msg103414/topicseen.html#msg103414

From where did the mason arrive?

Speculations have been made to where the architect and chief mason of the stone-age megalith cam from. This map shows that the possibilities are several – even though  the largest area is clearly north of the Baltic Sea…

http://www.wessexarch.co.uk/projects/amesbury/tests/oxygen_isotope.html (http://www.wessexarch.co.uk/projects/amesbury/tests/oxygen_isotope.html)


Oral tradition


During megalithic and neolithic time thepeople didn't have the time to make paper and pens - learn to read and write and then start to  educated in some skill.

The various schools of knowledge - that evidently devloped into all the civilsations of antiquity - were built on brains - with exact memory as the bearing element.

The most funny part with Stonehenge is that the folklore-traditons of oral story-telling still existed in Wiltshire and Wales (where the blue stones are fetched) until the end of the middle ages - when they were recorded. The following link explains how the populations of England and Wales have enjoyed a bard-tradtion much like he Scottish - that have been telling about the big project of Stonehenge with specific issues and astounding precision in time. Recent research have revealed that the oral traditions about Stonehenge actually are what they claim; some 4.000 years old story-telling traditions…!

No, I don't see them as shelters, some of them are kind of small.  I see them as spiritual places. Stonehenge, for instance, has had bodies found buried by it.

Ein Grab der Jungsteinzeit (2500 v. Ch. - Trichterbecherkultur). Dieser Urdolmen gehört zur ältesten Bauform der Großsteingräber. Er war für nur einen Toten gedacht. Ein schwach trapezförmiges Hünenbett, das teilweise erhalten ist, grenzt das Grab ab und hebt es hervor. (bei Neubarkvieren im Dammerstorfer Wald, Gemeinde Dettmannstdorf, Landkreis Nordvorpommern, Mecklenburg)). 1959 wurde der Fund des geplünderten Grabes bekannt. Vermessen wurde es von Ewald Schuldt.
