Stonehenge

17 16 the fIrSt Stonehenge an implosion over 1500 years Stonehenges concentric circles of stones and postholes evolved inwards with time the very opposite of a raindrop falling on water. This implosion evolved over 1500 years. The circular outer ditch and bank, once 6 foot high, is dated to around 3150 BC opposite top. The axis entrance, flanked by the then upright slaughter stone and a long gone companion stone, was filled with many experimental posts, apparently to monitor the most northerly moonrises each month opposite centre, particularly the extreme midwinter full moonrise which only occurs every eighteen years and seven months. The entrance was later widened and the angle changed to that of the midsummer sunrise opposite bottom. The Heel Stone, moated within a small circular ditch marked the start of an 1800 foot long avenue, as shown on the extreme right of the upper illustration opposite. Stonehenge, predominantly a lunar observatory in its early phases, apparently became more a solar observatory as it evolved. Evidence for solilunar observations, eclipse prediction and an accurate calendar also exists. The name Heel Stone perhaps derives from the Welsh or Greek word for Sun, haul and helios respectively. Its other popular name Friars Heel, is thought to refer to an indent on the stone which resembles a heelprint. However, ffriw yr haul is phonetically almost identical, being the Old Welsh for appearance of the Sun, a far more apt reason for the name.
