You seem well informed.  Let me pose a
specific question. In your opinion did the
Stonehenge builder people originally come
from the Rhineland?
David Christainsen
I wouldn't hold my breath on such a hypothesis. There are people from all
over the British Isles and northwestern Europe turning up in and around the
Stonehenge landscape.
If the monument was designed and built by architects from the Rhineland I
would have to ask why they didn't build something similar in the Rhineland
itself.
Because the Snow was Deeper in Britain, Sir Digger!

Garry Denke "King of Stonehenge" (b. 2340 BC, d. 2300 BC)
Yes, Sir Digger! the Rhineland Ancestor of the Good Doctor!

Three hundred and fifty and two (352) years ago German historian,
antiquarian and dentist Dr. Garry Denke (1622-1699) claimed that Snow
Fence of Rocks ('Great Cursus of Stonehenge') and All of the others
were built to trap snow, and archaeologists David McOmish (English
Heritage), Dr. Kenneth Brophy (University of Glasgow), Dr. Mike Pitts
(British Archaeology), Prof. Timothy Darvill (Bournemouth University),
Prof. Geoff Wainwright (Society of Antiquaries), Dr. Andrew
Fitzpatrick (Wessex Archaeology), Dave Batchelor (English Heritage),
Prof. Mike Parker Pearson (University of Sheffield), Prof. Julian
Thomas (University of Manchester), Dr. Joshua Pollard (University of
Bristol), Dr. Colin Richards (University of Manchester), Chris Tilley
(University College London), Dr. Kate Welham (Bournemouth University)
and All of the other United Kingdom archaeologists claim that 10,000-
year-old Cursus Snow Fences were sacred. Yes, Sir Digger! but Why?
Snow Fences producing Spring drinking water are still sacred to the
thirsty, no artifacts are in Cursus banks because they are only Snow
Fences, and All of their offsetting Weather Vane Poles (upwind and
downwind) date them 10,000 years old.

One of the interesting facts about Cursus Snow Fences and Cursus
Reservoir Ditches is that when their ends are left unblocked they will
actually dry a field of snowmelt in time for a Spring planting. It is
this dual function which makes Cursus Snow Fences and Cursus Reservoir
Ditches so regionally versatile, and the reason that some have blocked
terminals while others have open ends into rivers. Ancient
Meteorologist ancestor Garry Denke of the Rhineland designed Weather
Vanes and Pigskin Windsocks in 8000 BC (upwind and downwind Poles
dated) to position them. Salisbury Plain's three (3) Southern parallel
Mesolithic (10,000-year-old) Stonehenge pinewood Weather Vane Poles
that were constructed inside what is now Stonehenge car park which
held three (3) gutted-out conical tube-shaped Pigskin Windsocks (wind
cones) at their pole tops is what Sir Digger! et al, should be
studying. The three (3) Southern parallel Stonehenge's pinewood
Weather Vane Poles and top Pigskin Windsocks were designed to measure
wind direction and relative wind speed before Northern parallel
Mesolithic (10,000-year-old) Great Cursus Snow Fence was built for
Spring water generation atop dry Stonehenge hill.

Yes, Sir Digger! should research Stonehenge's oldest features first:

The article feature (9,000-year-old) charcoal is secondary.

Is it true that 7000 BC is about 9,000 years ago?
And is 10,000 years ago about 8000 BC?
Which is older, 8000 or 7000 BC?
I am so confused, Thanks!

Playful insult but you are a guy.

I don't care that you are not interested in
the Guardian's fine reporting.

UK Experts say Stonehenge was Place of Healing
http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5i55z9vq47vnFMeo1MGW-6uT2ZoegD93C4O9O0

Home and Farm and Ranch water
---------------------------------------------
1) Stone Age homeland, farmland and ranchland water supply was greatly
enhanced by ancient Cursus snow fences located in Ireland, Wales,
Scotland, and England.
2) Nearly seventy-five percent (75%) of annual surface runoff to
Cursus water storage reservoirs was generated by Spring snowmelt from
ancient Mesolithic snowdrifts.
3) Irish, Welsh, Scottish, and English ancestors effectively trapped
snow and accumulated snowdrifts from Stone Age snowstorms with 10,000-
year-old snow fencing.
4) Hundreds of snow fences substantially improved water retention and
increased the water supply from Cursus storage reservoirs throughout
the United Kingdom.

Some benefits of coralling snow:
-------------------------------------------
1) Water for agriculture (farming and ranching).
2) Snowmelt saved trips for river drinking water.
3) Deep snow travel between villages eliminated.
4) Remove excess water from lowland farm fields.

Yes BritArch Cursus Denke! Royal Society Cursus Denke!

Well it took awhile in totaling The Stone Age (Mesolithic Period)
farming and ranching Cursus Snow Fence Enclosures (over 300) and their
Mesolithic Period surveying poles (over 1,800) augered then dated by
radiometrics (including Stonehenge cursuses) being 10,000 years old
(8000 BC), located in Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and England.

There were no Cursus Snow Fence Enclosures built during the
Paleolithic Period, none during the Neolithic Period, and none during
the Bronze Age / Iron Age in the British Isles (Ireland, Wales,
Scotland, England). All Cursus were built during the Middle Stone Age
(Mesolithic Period) before the climate 9,000 years ago (7000 BC)
changed.

Over 100 miles (160 kilometres) of Cursus,
several topped with more recent woods.
