More than 5,000 years old, this intriguing ancient monument situated north of the city of Salisbury, England, continues to elicit conjecture and hypotheses that defy logic. Excavation, radiography, measurement, and analysis of the terrain have all been completed. Despite what has been learned about its date and construction, the function of the structure remains a mystery.
The ruins of Stonehenge look random and chaotic from the ground, but a view from the air exposes the monument’s circular pattern. Around 3100 B.C., the site began as a simple ring of wood posts surrounded by a ditch and bank. Over a period of around 1,500 years, the interior was filled with the characteristic gigantic granite slabs, some of which were carried from hundreds of kilometers distant.
Although Stonehenge is not the only megalithic stone circle in the globe, it is a well-known fact. Some exist as collections of circles, such as the Senegambian circles in Gambia, Senegal, which are included on the world list as a single circle but are really made up of over 1,000 separate monuments spanning an area of 15,000 square kilometers. Although Britain has a huge number of Neolithic monuments, it does not have a henge monopoly. Within the former Soviet Union’s boundaries, some of the most remarkable Neolithic monuments may be found. Arkaim is one of those forgotten places, although it’s a crucial element of the mystery structures.
Beyond the pages of history, there is Arkaim.
The archaeological site of Arkaim is being rebuilt.
Some believe Arkaim to be Northern Europe’s most significant and mysterious archaeological site. The location is fraught with controversy and is frequently referred to as Russia’s Stonehenge. It is situated on the boundaries of the Chelyabinsk Oblast, just north of the Kazakhstan border, south of the Urals.
Arkaim is the ruins of an ancient hamlet, which was essentially a village protected by two massive circular stone walls, according to scholars. The intriguing location, which spans 20,000 square meters and is divided into two rings by a street with a center square, is comprised of two circles of dwellings separated by a roadway. The site was found by a team of Russian archaeologists in 1987, and it sparked a frenzy of interest within the archaeological world. The site and related artifacts have been dated to the 17th century BC, and it is thought to have been constructed between 4,000 and 5,000 years ago, putting it in the same age range as Stonehenge.
The current state of Arkaim’s archaeological site.
Arkaim is also known as the city of the swastika or the Mandala city. It was given this name for a few reasons. First, the pattern of the homes surrounding the center area resembles a swastika if you use your imagination. The swastika has been embraced by current white nationalist organizations as a symbol of misuse by the Nazis and the so-called Aryan race. The second argument is because they descended from the Sintashta civilization, an Indo-Iranian race from the ancient Eurasian steppe, or the Aryan race in modern parlance. So there are many who believe Arkaim is the genesis of humanity’s superior white race. For a change, few in mainstream science believe that line of reasoning is valid.
The mysteries of Arkaim.
More intriguing mysteries are hidden on the site, such as its connection to a politically incorrect component of our society. Archaeoastronomers have been particularly interested in it, which is why it has been linked to Stonehenge. According to some scholars, Stonehenge was erected for astronomical observation. It is formally referred to as an observatory. This is because Stonehenge allowed for the observation of ten astronomical events using 22 elements, while others argue that Arkaim allows for the observation of 18 phenomena using 30 elements.
This effectively implies that the site can monitor and track certain celestial phenomena in certain ways and from various vantage points, and that Arkaim has more observable events than Stonehenge. To put it another way, Arkaim seems to be an even superior astronomical observatory than its namesake. Stonehenge has an accuracy of 10 minutes of arc in one degree, according to Russian archaeologist KK Bystrushkin, whereas Arkaim has a precision of 1 minute of arc. This level of accuracy is unheard of in the allowable time span, second only to the 2,000-year-old Ancient Greek Almagest.
So, while it may seem obvious to some, the fact that these sites were apparently built with the intention of serving as astronomical observatories and even calendars before the same experience was achieved in antiquity’s great founding empires, such as the Egyptians and Greeks, appears to be strong evidence to attribute further development and sophistication to these prehistoric cultures.
The Arkaim Mysteries.
The Arkaim village and its restorations in detail.
Aside from their history, Stonehenge and Arkaim are oddly located in the same geographical latitude. But Arkaim has also become a focal point for the UFO community, with reports of a huge number of UFOs, weird flashes of light in the sky, and even a curious fog moving as if it were an intelligent thing…
However, in addition to the well-known section, Arkaim also contains a lot more enigmatic sector where excavations are currently ongoing and visitors are not permitted. Even conspiracy theorists warn that residents are not allowed access to the mystery place. Experts say this is due to the energy that circulates throughout the region, which has incredible power and the capacity to make anybody lose their mind.
A student of archeology claimed to have heard a voice beckoning her from the core of the edifice. She approached, and only she knows what occurred next. He said that as time passed, he encountered the spirits of Arkaim’s past occupants. She had apparently entered another world and was unable to tolerate it, forcing her to be sent to a mental facility. If we look closely, we may see that identical events occurred with the discovery of the Egyptian pyramids.
Because of all of these strange occurrences, the villagers have long felt that it is a hallowed site. Pilgrims visit all year to collect medicinal water from the adjacent river, the Bolshaya and use clay to cure different maladies in the summer.
Are our actual ancestors unknown to us?
Arkaim and other mysterious buildings provide evidence of the presence of an unknown or lost civilization in the ancient past. Arkaim is only one example of Russia’s vast archaeological treasure trove. Similar ruins, such as Sarkel, a limestone, and brick fortification erected by the Khazar civilization in the 830s or 840s that was flooded by the Russian government for the building of Tsimlyansk Reservoir in 1952, have been lost to the country’s economic expansion.
Tsimlyansk Reservoir, also known as Tsimlyanskoye Reservoir, is a man-made lake on the Don River in the Rostov and Volgograd Oblasts, located at 47°50′N 42°50′E.
Similar aspects can be found all over the world, but they have not yet been researched, examined, or even identified that might decode our real roots owing to secrecy and lack of collaboration amongst governments, or even to erase our origins.
