Answering The Question: How Places Like Stonehenge Were Built

Answering The Question: How Places Like Stonehenge Were Built
I've always been fascinated by construction methods used for Stonehenge, The Great Pyramids, and others. I think this guy is on to something, and even if hes not right what hes doing can be applied to projects we do today. I may get my Fenir-esque Easter Island Effigy for my yard yet. Using what he believes are the original methods, retired carpenter W.T. Wallington has recreated his own version of the ancient megalith. According to Wallington, “over the years, many times I had to improvise on tools that were not at hand in order to get the job done,” he writes. “At one of these times, about 20 years ago, I had to remove some 1,200-pound, saw-cut concrete blocks from an existing floor.    The problem was that we did not have a machine that could reach some of the blocks. The only obvious answer was to break the blocks into...

Fortunately I've always had the majority of whats been needed for this upgrade as the general things you'd find in most casting shops are pretty much the same.

Evidence of Viking Outpost Found in Canada

Evidence of Viking Outpost Found in Canada
Sharpeners may be smoking guns in quest for New World's second Viking site.   The sad story behind the scenes though- Pat is still fighting the Canadian Government to correct the blatant mistakes made in handling this information.  ~Fen   For the past 50 years—since the discovery of a thousand-year-old Viking way station in Newfoundland—archaeologists and amateur historians have combed North America's east coast searching for traces of Viking visitors. It has been a long, fruitless quest, littered with bizarre claims and embarrassing failures. But at a conference in Canada earlier this month, archaeologist Patricia Sutherland announced new evidence that points strongly to the discovery of the second Viking outpost ever discovered in the Americas. While digging in the ruins of a centuries-old building on Baffin Island (map), far above the Arctic Circle, a team led by Sutherland, adjunct professor of archaeology at Memorial University in Newfoundland and a research...
