Abstract the Novorossiysk

Tools are made from

stone, bone wood. Then people learned and copper.

It took many centuries. In the distant Egypt in 2600 BC

constructed the pyramid of Cheops, the largest pyramid of Ancient Egypt.

It was difficult to imagine how the ancient people did not have

modern technology could build out of multi-ton stone blocks

enormous edifices. The pyramids are considered one of the seven wonders of the world.

Few people know that at the same time in the North Caucasus the local tribes

of huge stoves built no less amazing structures dolmens. Continue reading

The megalithic temples of Malta

Among other things to history, the Maltese archipelago is still world famous for the fact that the oldest man-made structures on Earth are located in these places. This is the megalithic temples. The man, who had never encountered such prehistoric monuments, often raises a number of questions: what kind of temples such as their, where, for what purpose were erected? Let’s start from the very beginning that there is a megalith in General?

In simple terms, is any religious building, built of huge semi-finished or rough boulders, among which are the dolmens (funerary box, covered with a massive flat slab), and menhirs (separately from each other standing stones) and cromlechs (circular fence).

Here are cromlechs megaliths. The best known among the cromlechs are considered to be in the world of Carnac (France) and Stonehenge (England) is, but the Maltese buildings are older, they also differ in “accuracy” — on the territory, comparable to a small European city located more than twenty temples.

Megalithic structures

The dolmens.

The name “megalithic culture” that we often use, reflects our confusion rather than understanding: it literally is just “the culture of the big stones”. And given the fact that stone structures can be found in almost all parts of the world, and that their very presence and technique evokes deep respect for the builders and a lot of questions, allows scientists and researchers of megaliths to relax and not to reckon with the fact that we actually have. And certainly does not tally the construction of megaliths and the statues of Easter island, the Peruvian lines and shapes, Chinese, Egyptian pyramids and the pyramids of other countries and peoples with a man in skins and a stone axe, which, according to official science, lived in that distant era.

Transport of stone blocks was a challenge yet, perhaps more time-consuming than the construction itself. In terms of, for example, of the Caucasus, where he found more than 2000 dolmens (and this is not the limit!), at that time the scientists were hardly the road. Continue reading
