A team of experts, led by archaeologist David Jacques of the Open University, have excavated evidence of a settlement near Stonehenge, dating back to 7,500 BC -- which is 5,000 years earlier than previous findings suggested.

Stonehenge was erected 9,500 years ago

Archaeologist Josh Pollard from Southampton University and the Stonehenge Riverside Project, told BBC that his team has "found the community who put the first monument up at Stonehenge."

The experts have discovered the community that constructed Stonehenge and carbon-dating the material found at the site revealed a continuous occupation of the area between 7,500 BC and 4,700 BC.

Large wooden posts, erected in the Mesolithic period, have been carbon-dated between 8,500 and 7,000 BC.

The "tip of the iceberg"

    "The site has the potential to become one of the most important Mesolithic sites in north-western Europe," Professor Peter Rowley-Conwy, from Durham University, told BBC.

    Dr Pollard, from the Stonehenge Riverside declared: "I suspect he's just hit the tip of the iceberg in terms of Mesolithic activity focused on the Avon around present day Amesbury."

The forbidden questions that no official wants to ask:

1. What civilization was able 9,500 years ago to quarry megalithic stones weighing up to 20-25 tons, transport them 200 miles over rough terrain and erect them in circles?

2. For what purpose? Why would our stone-age ancestors even think about doing something like that? According to our official history, their lives should have been fully occupied with basic survival.

3. Isn't it interesting that, sooner or later, all ancient sites end up being much older than previously believed?

I have some discussions in the archaeology group on Stonehenge and I find it fascinating that it is now thought to have been a moon observatory, not sun and that many of the original stones are musical. That Stonehenge not just the age mentioned here, but the original stones worked in sync with sound and vibrations.
