Granite skeletons of 5500 years old burial chambers. Where did these 20 ton boulders come from, how were they piled up and by whom and why..? What is the mystery behind these relics from the past..? If you want to know, read on. For the first time on Internet!"

About a week after starting my own ancient sites pages I discovered "The Stone Pages" and frankly wondered why I should bother to continue - and that was back in 1996, they've added a lot more since then! Paola and Diego have constructed a comprehensive set of pages here covering sites from France, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Italy. You'll find QTVR movies of many ancient sites, up to the minute archaeological news and of course a lot of prehistoric monuments. A "must have" in the bookmarks of any self respecting, web browsing megalith enthusiast.

The Thornborough Henges are not as yet covered on this site due to the fact that I have not had the pleasure of visiting them.

I urge all readers to please visit Timewatch.org, read the information and sign the petition. Thank you.

Earth Mysteries

From Watford Gap to Camelot

"Mythical journey along a real but relatively ordinary road. Or maybe it is a real journey along a mythical road - I'm never quite sure. It is a quest of sorts, ranging across history, mystery, the bizarre and the banal, starting in the middle of nowhere, and ending somewhere that probably doesn't exist. In between - the ordinary and the extraordinary, which often turn out to be the same thing."
