Scientists found out how they built Stonehenge


The cylinders covered with a difficult carving were used as measuring tools for creation of megalytic constructions. The ancient stone cylinders called by folktonsky drums whose age reaches 4-4.6 thousand years were used by tribes in the north of modern England as measuring tools for creation of megalytic constructions, including Stonehenge, Daily Mail reports on December 21. The cylinders covered with a difficult carving were found in 1889 in the children's grave dated the Neolithic and since then were repeatedly studied. However just now researchers defined what these artifacts were applied to. Scientists measured length of a circle of each drum and found out that if seven times to wrap up a rope a big cylinder, then the measured length will be equal 3.22 meters. The same number will turn out if to wind eight times with a rope an average cylinder or ten times - the smallest. Top-5 false historical monuments according to archeologists, cylinders could be useful during creation in Stonehenge of trilit - constructions from three stones, one of which lies on two others. Ancient people measured the necessary length, winding ropes around folktonsky drums or rolling them on the ground. It allowed them to use large stones of identical height for construction. Now it is considered that all this became without measuring tools. Earlier scientists found out origin of builders of Stonehenge. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
