In support of Lost Civilisations
The Grand Menhir Brise in Brittany - which is 71ft in Height - could this marker be used to steer ships to harbour?
Last week I published an essay on my theory about LONG BARROWS as sign posts for our ancient ancestors. In support for this theory I would like to refer to an article published in The Times on 1st December 2010 by Norman Hammond, which reports on an article from the International Journal of Archaeology 39: 433-435.
In the Paper and subsequent article, Peter Davidson reports that over a 20 year study, he has been able to identify that 'sea shore' stone circles are built as 'direction finders' for the nautical civilisation that lived in Mesolithic times of prehistory.
These monuments are widespread and start in Scotland - with clear routes over the Irish sea to Ireland down the European coast all the way down to Spain. These sites were used not only as direction finders for the crew but more importantly to indicate the location of safe harbours for landing.
This proof of the use of Megalithic monuments such as LONG BARROWS clearly indicate that the water levels in Mesolithic Times of prehistory (directly after the last Ice Age and Great melt) were much higher than today. So much so, that boats were able to navigate these giant inland waterways that lead to the oceans of the world.
