    Maybe the spring had known properties, and maybe before the stone henge was built there was already a special place -constructed of wood instead ? – it had to be considered very special possibly a religious shrine for anyone to travel that kind of distance, unless it was a family meeting together ? But again we are beginning to realize that humans were not so different from us back then..look at what we are finding..Gobekli Tepe is 11,800 yrs old I believe..I really suspect that humans were in touch with each other just as we are..altho it took weeks or months to get from 1 place to another, it’s only a question of degree of travel time, rather like the difference from 1650 & now, it didn’t seem to stop anybody actually travelling…and the body discovered in the Alps – that guy was way up in the mountains, far away from villages..they travelled on foot or maybe had rough wheeled carts…maybe wheels were invented much further back then we realize also ?

About the author

Ginger Perales

Ginger Perales

When Ginger's original dream of writing the next great American novel didn’t quite work out she turned her thoughts to math and science. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering, after which she spent 18 years employed with a city public works department which allowed her to write the great American mortgage check. But that's all behind her now (except for the mortgage) since she seized the opportunity to start a freelance writing career - can the novel be far behind? She lives in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States with her husband of 26 years (talk about history!) and when not at the computer enjoys cheering for her favorite football teams, home improvement projects and a good mystery novel. Her favorite points in History are those when engineering had a profound effect on the people of the time, from the Roman aqueduct of Segovia, c. A.D. 50, to the Panama Canal, c. 1914, to whatever's next.
