What is America's
Stonehenge? Built by
a Native American Culture or a migrant European population? No one knows
for sure. A maze of man-made chambers, walls and ceremonial meeting
places, America's Stonehenge is most likely the oldest man-made
construction in the United States (over 4000 years old).
Like Stonehenge in
England, America's Stonehenge was built by ancient people well versed in
astronomy and stone construction. It has been determined that the site
is an accurate astronomical calendar. It was, and still can be, used to
determine specific solar and lunar events of the year.
Various inscriptions have been found throughout the site
including Ogham, Phoenician and Iberian Punic Script. Dr. Barry Fell of
Harvard University did extensive work on the inscriptions found at the
site. They are detailed in his book America B.C.
