The Stonehenge Flying Saucer


While there are many theories explaining (or trying to) the Stonehenge megaliths and site, an almost obvious interpretation is that the initial creators of Stonehenge (circa 8000 B.C.) were emulating the craft that brought them or provided “supplies” to them, much in the way that the Cargo Cult peoples emulated World War II aircraft they had seen delivering supplies in the Pacific.



Just as the Akkadian peoples and Egyptian scribes depicted the gods who provided them with cultural artifacts, the Stonehenge creators did the same, but in a more realistic and tangible way, with a construction that duplicated the craft they were familiar with.


Stonehenge’s evolution has been dynamic, with the original site comprised of large stones, ground cover, earthworks, and vegetation insertions that duplicated “flying saucers.”


At some point, later than 3000 B.C., the heft and importance of the craft or “saucers” that interacted with the British Isles people were simulated by megaliths that everyone identifies with Stonehenge.


If exact dates could be determined for construction variables, those could be compared with UFO sightings for the same time periods, which would help serious ufological anthropologists, perhaps, with proof of alien visitations that came in waves.

S. Shklovskii’s contention, in his book with co-author Carl Sagan, Intelligent Life in the Universe [Dell, NY, 1966] that there was an extraterrestrial visitation in and around Sumeria 10,000 years ago, as suggested by Soviet ethnologist M. M. Agrest, is supplemented with von Daniken-like assertions that many extraterrestrial visitation took place for periods before and after 10,000 B.C.

Stonehenge represents at least one of those visitations and very likely many visitations since the Stonehenge construct was imaginatively updated from about 10,000 B.C. (as some scholars date the beginnings of Stonehenge) to 1600 B.C. when further elaboration of the site seemed to stop.

The history of the British Isles, including the legend of King Arthur, is replete with strange occurrences that bespeak of visitations by advanced or superior cultures, well before the Roman invasions of the common era (circa 43 A.D.).


But it is the Stonehenge repository that creates, more specifically than any other site, anywhere else in the world, including the ancient AmerIndian cultures or Egyptian civilizations, a replication that depicts, dramatically, the vehicles that transported alien galactic cultures to Earth.
