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.”
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
