What is Stonehenge?

Senior Travel To Stonehenge

If you’re in the 55 and older rang and you love to travel, then get ready and pack your bags in 2012. Senior travel to Stonehenge has never been more important than this year. Why? Because Stonehenge, and the surrounding Salisbury Plain is really ancient and wonderful, and you’ll bring back some of the “good vibrations” that occurred over 4000 years ago. I just returned from a trip to Stonehenge, NewGrange in Ireland, and the sacred sites of the Salisbury plain. Stonehenge is a human marvel that makes you want to throw away your cell phone and lie down on the Earth to feel what we have been missing for so many years. Most people have heard of Stonehenge, but few know exactly where it is, or what it is. Where is Stonehenge? It is West of London, a bit south of Bath, and not too far from Glastonbury, (another place you need to add to the list.)

What is Stonehenge? It is an amazing piece of architecture that people around 2400 BC. created out of huge stones. It was important enough for people to haul stones from as far away as 150 miles, and they weren’t just any old stones. The large ones, called Sarsens, came from an area a bit north of Stonehenge, and the BlueStones came from Wales. What is interesting is that the line from Stonehenge to the Preseli mountains in Wales, where the stones came from, is the same line that runs directly across the Pyramids in Gaza. In trying to re-create the way in which they might have been transported, they simulated putting one of these massive stones on a boat around the southern most part of England, and it sank with the weight of the stone.

Stonehenge was a part of a larger cosmology that reveals that the ancient people who constructed the stone circle, had a very developed technology for watching the stars, the sun and the moon. This was important to whatever ritualistic events that took place at Stonehenge. In 2005, the Riverside project unveiled the largest Neolithic village (near Stone-henge) that has ever been found in Europe. So, what is Stone-henge? It is an amazing sacred piece of architecture that was connected to an advanced system for viewing and identifying the movements of the larger universe of which we are a part. It is also a place where the dead were cremated (remains have been found), as well as a place where feasts occurred. We must put the pieces together with our imagination and with the pieces unveiled by archeologists and historians. To witness these massive stones, is a moment that you will never forget. Senior Travel to Stonehenge is easy on your own, or with a friend.
