I prefer to comply with the calendar/temple idea. Because the folks of that area have been druids, it might make the most sense. As for the way it was constructed, all i can affirm is that they used a roap like material and a lot of man power, with some picket constructing equipemnt as effectively.

Its a religious site, I could be getting confused but I’m pretty certain its designed so at sure times of the 12 months the light is channeled via the pillars.

Mild shining by means of the pillars doesn’t essentially make it a religious site, or does it Anyone

it may have been some kind of religious site or a calendar – the one factor we do know for positive desipte in style belief is that the site is on no account related to the druids. It was Outdated long before the druids even discovered it.

Easter Island is very interesting. And from what I perceive, a little bit extra is thought about this tradition than the builders of Stonehenge.
As to Stonehenge That I do not know a lot about, but my thoughts are that it is some sort of calendar that marks necessary days of the year for religious ceremoniess.

I checked that site concerning Easter Island. Thanks. The invention Channel has some good things and online too. Yes, Stonehenge goes back a lot additional than Easter Island…at the very least the work on the stones there.
Both are mysterious and it goes to show you how inventive and intelligent folks were then –long earlier than our modern expertise. And creative too.
From what I’ve read about Easter Island /the stone faces the theory is that they’d great religious significance perhaps were even worshipped. I ponder why there have been so a lot of them and some not fairly erect or complete simply left….am merely speculating… however maybe every one represented an individual or a family. Some form of monument possibly to final endlessly. Properly, they’ve lasted longer than many monuments to the past and might be there long after some of ours are gone…Hummmm, I’m wondering…

You guys make me laugh. Thanks
Stonehenge was created about 2000 years BC by Druids at the time. The stone was cut from Quarry’s in Wales and transported on a primitive track system. (e.g. logs cut and positioned under the stones to roll them along). The Henge was created as an historical calander to mark the winter and summer solstice as part of the Pagan religion of the Druids at the time.
How the welsh were conned in dragging these stones all that way I have no idea. Suffice to say we are not as gulliable or easily manipulated as of late. Just look on the Rugby.

From what I have read about Easter Island /the stone faces the idea is that that they had great religious significance perhaps have been even worshipped. I wonder why there were so many of them and a few not quite erect or complete just left….am merely speculating… however perhaps each one represented a person or a family. Some sort of monument perhaps to last forever. Well, they have lasted longer than many monuments to the previous and shall be there long after some of ours are gone…Hummmm, I ponder…

Society on Easter Island progressed towards collapse as the islands resources had been used up. Settlement of the island is thought to have started in the sixth century and was quite actually a one shot affair. Most of the top constructing was in between the 14th and 16th centuries. As resources dwindled within the fifteenth and 16th century it became more difficult after which impossible to continue to build extra heads. At the time because the collapse, mid 16th century, intra-island warfare led to the toppling of many of theh heads and outright cannibalism as there were little or no food assets left.
Easter island just isn’t a monument to thriller. It is a monument to a societies collapse. A collapse so complete that when it was ‘re-found’ in the 18th century not even the residents had a lot, if any, idea of what the heads were for.

Really, the head building stopped some time before the society collapsed- it seems to have been replaced by a competing religion, which is manifested in rock artwork all over the island.

The Druid theory was once a very popular theory. Students now consider it archaic. Here is a URL which incorporates a superb clarification of the varied theories, once they emerged, and what they could mean. The article is simply too long to incorporate, but checking it out or other articles ought to enlighten anybody concerning the theories.
