Storytelling in the industrial age and beyond Article in On the Horizon 14 4: Findings — The forms and applications of storytelling continually expand to meet the expanding needs of society throughout human history. Storytelling today, as in the past, can be useful as a tool for defining, securing and shaping people’s existence in relation to both their culture and their universe. Storytelling is particularly valuable for ensuring one’s survival in today’s continually changing global environment. Practical implications — Storytelling has always played a role in the evolution and survival of cultures. Today, as the world experiences rapid and continual change, it is more important than ever to identify and expand the forms and applications of storytelling to help people and organizations prepare for evolution and survival in an unfamiliar future. Currently, most societies across the globe are in a period of rapid transition and continual change. During this transition, it is vital to expand understanding of the evolving forms and applications of storytelling so that one can continue in the tradition of using stories to define, preserve and shape society.

Dig hints at Stonehenge’s healing role
Stonehenge ” T he more we dig, the more the mystery seems to deepen,” said William Hawley — , the official archaeologist of Stonehenge following World War I — He was reporting to the press about his underfunded historical project that seemed to be languishing. Hawley wasn’t able to make much progress in understanding Stonehenge by the time he wearily gave up the task around Since then, many others have tried, and much information has been gained.
Still, old legends and theories about Stonehenge seem to carry as much validity as information based on careful tests performed with the best in modern equipment.
Sep 23, · Stonehenge and its surrounding landscape have seen an unprecedented amount of research in the last decade. One of the most significant strands of this has been Historic England’s survey of the stones, the surrounding earthworks and the hidden archaeology. This research has involved a combination of non-intrusive techniques – analytical survey of upstanding monuments and.
This is largely because unlike the uniqueness of the spots in the coarser grained doleritic rocks, the rhyolites are fine-grained in character and lack any obvious distinctiveness, especially in hand specimen. This makes their provenancing difficult. This study aims to see if the chemistry of zircons, which are present in both sets of samples, could be used to support the petrographical association.
Analyses for certain high field strength elements including the rare earth elements obtained by LA-ICP-MS showed that indeed the analyses were nearly identical when compared using a range of statistical approaches, including similarity coefficients, statistical distance, and principal component analysis, while showing clear differences to sample sets which had no reason to be correlated with the Pont Saeson samples. There are two important conclusions arising from this study.
Secondly, the chemistry of zircons may well prove to have a wider application in the provenancing of fine-grained rhyolitic rocks which have an archaeological context. Previous article in issue.
Users shared their experiences and perceptions of the two sites in interviews and eye-tracking research was conducted. The results were interesting and pointed out issues with technology facilitating emotional connection and chemistry between users.

He then goes on to make the extraordinary claim of the the show, that there is a Stonehenge in America and that this henge and actual Stonehenge were built by the same people. We start in Salem, New Hampshire at a place now called American Stonehenge, but what was once called Mystery Hill.
Europe France’s new Stonehenge: Secrets of a neolithic time machine A spectacular discovery of Stone Age menhirs in Brittany could unlock the code to one of the most puzzling chapters of human development, and transform our knowledge of mankind’s early history Sunday 30 July The developer was no historian but he knew instantly what the obstacle must be: He ordered a bulldozer to shove the stone underground again before any passing busybody spotted it.
He did not want the work on his six seaside bungalows to be halted for a prolonged archaeological dig. Brittany, he probably reasoned, is crammed with old stones.
Love, Lies and What They Learned
William Stukeley in notes, “Pendulous rocks are now called henges in Yorkshire I doubt not, Stonehenge in Saxon signifies the hanging stones. Like Stonehenge’s trilithons , medieval gallows consisted of two uprights with a lintel joining them, rather than the inverted L-shape more familiar today. The “henge” portion has given its name to a class of monuments known as henges.
Because its bank is inside its ditch, Stonehenge is not truly a henge site. Despite being contemporary with true Neolithic henges and stone circles , Stonehenge is in many ways atypical—for example, at more than 7.
Stonehenge, in that case, would be part of the well known family and widely developed type of burial mounds or tumuli, here with an open central portion, because I rule out the idea, despite the relatively short distances to cross between the peripheral ring and the .
The remains of a massive stone monument, 15 times the size of Stonehenge and located just 2 miles 3. The stone monoliths were found buried beneath the bank of the Durrington Walls “super-henge,” one of the largest-known henges in the United Kingdom, and could have been part of a huge Neolithic monument, the researchers said. The finding, announced on Saturday Sept. Stunning Photos of Stonehenge ] It is not yet clear whether the stones were put in place at the same time as those of Stonehenge, nor do the researchers know how the stones were used.
However, those who study the mysterious rock monuments of the U. Now they know that isn’t the case. A view of Durrington Walls, with the relative position of the newfound stones represented as yellow dots.. The stones were then buried under a bank of earth that measures about feet 40 m across and nearly 10 feet 3 m high in some places. This massive bank forms the outer perimeter of the Durrington Walls “super-henge. Inside the bank of the henge are a few smaller enclosures and timber-ringed circles.
The massive landscape monument is associated with a settlement dating back about 4, years, to the Late Neolithic period, the researchers said. The super-henge was constructed at the site of a natural depression in the landscape near the river Avon that was surrounded by a chalk scarp, or sharply edged hill.
Stonehenge Driving Tour
Salisbury Plain, where Stonehenge is found, was considered a sacred ground even before Stonehenge was built. Prehistoric hunting was done here, and scientists have uncovered animal bones and over 12, flint tools dating back as far as BC. Stonehenge was gradually built over time, with the first earthworks erected around 5, years ago. Another years later, and sarsen stones were erected in a horseshoe shape, with others on top of them. Construction seemed to stop altogether years ago, but considering the timeframe, the workload was enormous.
Impact case study (REF3b) Page 3 Stonehenge (first broadcast 1 June ) reached m viewers (and is also available in video format), while Secrets of the Stonehenge Skeletons, first broadcast 1 June , reached million viewers [S1]. This represented a % .
Walls are as vigorously formative of civilization as its laws. Wall-mending and maintenance can serve as the metaphor for justice. Barriers define, but also encourage personal freedom and productivity by allowing boundaries within which individuals, families, and businesses may conduct creative efforts and industry. We were already familiar with the thrill of NYC from visits to our son who lives there, but were totally unprepared for the beauty of Connecticut.
Ever game for art, adventure, and history, the suggestion did not require a hard sell. Julian Alden Weir, a leading figure in American art was also a prominent figure in the development of American Impressionism. A ranger-guided tour is a surprising walk from the formation of the earth to the creation of the New England walls. When farmers settled and began to clear the forests, they took the smaller rocks and threw them on top of the ones that were too massive to move.
Did Dutch Invaders Wipe Out Bronze Age Britons During the Construction of Stonehenge?
Email Was the prehistoric monument built to unite a land or as a destination to heal the sick? Recent research supports both ideas. After centuries of puzzling over the meaning of Stonehenge, laser-equipped researchers have concluded that the prehistoric monument was built to show off the solstices. Apart from revealing 71 new images of Bronze Age axeheads, which bring the number of this type of carvings known at Stonehenge to , the English Heritage groundbreaking analysis showed that the stones were shaped and crafted differently in various parts of the stone circle.
In particular, the stones first seen when approaching the monument from the north-east were completely “pick dressed. Located in the county of Wiltshire, at the center of England’s densest complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments, Stonehenge has been the subject of myth, legend and — more recently — scientific research for more than eight centuries.
An analysis of rocks and bones unearthed around Stonehenge supports the claim that the mysterious ancient landmark served as a kind of “Neolithic Lourdes,” drawing prehistoric pilgrims from around.

Dates for Stonehenge burials signify long-term use as cemetery
Stonehenge, like all great stone monuments across the planet, were built by an ancient Aryan Hyperborean-Atlantian people who ruled the world tens of thousands or possibly hundreds of thousands of years ago. The pyramids at Giza could be a million years old. They just come out with these gibberish hoaxes every few years to dazzle the goyim. New studies on the cremated remains of 25 Neolithic people buried at the site show that nearly half of them lived nowhere near the now world-famous monument.
A team from University of Oxford analysed the 25 skull bones, discovering that ten of those cremated originated from western Britain. The other 15 people appear to be local to the Wiltshire and Stonehenge area.
The means and standard deviations used throughout this case study were constructed by calculating the statistics from the midpoint of the calibrated date range supplied for each artifact. Section 1 – Dating samples from the Stonehenge site 1.
This information has been interpreted as indicating that the bluestones of Stonehenge could not have been transported to the site of Stonehenge by ice, because the ice sheets were extensive enough only at c. Chlorine dating gives an estimate of the length of time that a rock surface has been exposed to the atmosphere, by measuring the amount of Chlorine produced by exposure of the rock to cosmic radiation.
If the rock or surface has been covered or buried, the date obtained will reflect the reduced time of exposure to air. Thus a Chlorine date may reflect either recent exposure of a surface due to processes such as frost shattering, or an original exposure date. This difficulty of interpretation is why Chlorine dating is normally done on boulders or lava surfaces whose erosional history is known e. Professor Bowen and colleagues have obtained a date of c.
