Interesting to see this happened in more than just England. I have toured this site, and the similarities are uncanny. Cahokia also has a lot of
mounds that have yet to be excavated.
Are they burial mounds? Something else?
I have a theory which I have been developing since my youth (about 40 years ago) and it is basically this:
The reason for so many henges of similar type all over the world is NOT visits from aliens, explorers or mystics.
The reason for so many henges of similar type all over the world is because they are based on racial memory or the same story being told from
generation to generation.
When mankind travelled from Afrika to inhabit the earth they took with them stories and tales and their belief in gods.
Perhaps they build the henges to symbolize the view from the original place where mankind became "thinking beings"?
Perhaps the reason why the henges aren't identical is because the stories over the years change slightly?
Perhaps The First People had a yearly gathering where they had a central meeting place. And at that meeting place there was a stone representing each
tribe? At first they were stones to sit on in a large circle. Over time the stories made about them, made them out to be large and the henges were
build to honour the ancestors.
Perhaps all this solar alignment and star thingy is just coincidence? Wouldn't precession of the equinoxes put a question mark on that?
