Archaeologists claim to have discovered a ring of prehistoric shafts nearby the Stonehenge monument in southern England.
Researchers from the British universities of St Andrews, Birmingham, Warwick, Glasgow and the University of Wales Trinity Saint David claim that the 1.2 mile long circle of shafts dates to 4500 BC, dating before the construction of the well known Stonehenge monument in 3000BC. Both structures date from the Neolithic period, although the ring of underground shafts appears to be considerably older than Stonehenge itself.
Dr. Richard Bates of St. Andrews is describing the previously hidden ring of underground shafts as an indicator of previously unknown sophistication of the prehistoric peoples that populated Britain.
“Clearly sophisticated practices demonstrate that the people were so in tune with natural events to an extent that we can barely conceive in the modern world.”
Theories indicate that Stonehenge itself was constructed as a site intended for observation of the summer solstice, and the structures nearby may have been designed for a similar utility. In a coincidence, the discovery of the previously unknown shafts occurred just days after the 2020 summer solstice.
Researchers have described discovering 20 unique shafts, which measure more than 10 meters in diameter and five meters in depth. They believe that the trenches may have served as a boundary to a religious site perhaps similar to Stonehenge.
Both of the neolithic artifacts are located near the abandoned settlement of Durrington Walls, a town in the neolithic period of history that may have been the largest in northern Europe at the time.
“As the place where the builders of Stonehenge lived and feasted Durrington Walls is key to unlocking the story of the wider Stonehenge landscape, and this astonishing discovery offers us new insights into the lives and beliefs of our Neolithic ancestors,” said Dr. Nick Snashall of Britain’s National Trust.
“The Hidden Landscapes team have combined cutting-edge, archaeological fieldwork with good old-fashioned detective work to reveal this extraordinary discovery and write a whole new chapter in the story of the Stonehenge landscape.”
Polish Election: National Conservative President Andrzej Duda Leads, Will Face Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger in Runoff
Poland’s President won the first round of the runoff.
Poland’s national conservative President, Andrzej Duda, will face liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski in a runoff election in July. Duda, of the Law and Justice Party, recieved a strong electoral plurality in the first round of elections, taking just under 44%. Trzaskowski recieved 30%, and will be the sole candidate competing against Duda in the runoff elections.
Trzaskowski favors further integrating Poland with the European Union, and has pitched his candidacy to global liberal western elites irritated by euroskeptic and nationalist sentiment in Poland. He’s attended the globalist Bilderberg Conference, and received a scholarship from the Soros Foundation in the early 90’s as a student.
Trzaskowski also led the movement within the country to resettle thousands of Middle Eastern refugees in Poland during the 2015 migrant crisis, a policy that was overturned after Duda took office that year.
Duda has campaigned on reforming the nation’s judiciary, resisting political imperatives from unelected European Union bureaucrats in Brussels(without calling for the Eastern European nation to leave the EU), and opposition to attempts to promote a western-style cultural agenda in Poland. Duda has spoken against the promotion of homosexual ideology in the country, comparing the previous generation’s experiences living under communism to the liberal agenda. “They didn’t fight for this so that a new ideology would appear that is even more destructive,” said Duda in a campaign rally earlier this month.
Various other political parties competed in the first round elections, including other right-wing and conservative parties, who marshaled approximately 9% of the vote combined. If Duda can unite voters inclined to vote for parties to the right of Law and Justice, he stands a strong chance to cruise to an easy victory with more than 50% of the vote.
