There is an interesting article regarding the significance of solstices & equinoxes in this website.
No the responces do not look like they are coming from dead people… If you can please write me an email to [email protected] , I will be more than happy to help you with all of our social media links.
Was Stonehenge rebuilt perhaps many times during the 20th century?
I drop a comment each time I like a post on a website or if I have something
to add to the conversation. Usually it is caused by the fire displayed in the post I looked at.
And after this post Add new comment | Ancient Origins.
I was excited enough to drop a thought :-P I actually
do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind.
Is it only me or does it look as if like some of the responses look like
they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional social sites,
I would like to follow everything new you have to post.
Could you make a list every one of all your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook
page or twitter feed?
My minor is Anthropology. The copper axes, were likely more ornamental. Copper smelting was a fairly new technology in the Late Neolithic, but copper is a poor metal to cut with, as it was too soft; they most likely used stone hand axes. Gender roles in farming was nothing new. That had been in existence for 1,000 years with the Mesolithic hunter-gatherer cultures. Men typically "hunted", and the women "gathered" ; neither were figurines. The idea of a "tell" settlement is poorly understood, although evidence for them is found through the European Neolithic; There are cases of tell mounds being as high as 40 feet at some sites. The rest of the article is passably fair. You may find the following text useful. Sir Barry Cunliffe is considered one of the best European historians in print. "Europe Between the Oceans: 9000 BC-AD1000 " (2008, Yale U. Press)

"The death of a god poses an interesting deviant from the usual belief that gods are immortal and invincible".
The story of Balder deals with the global mythical term of "the dying and rising deity" - Do you own search.
As "a son of Odin and Frigg, residing in the heavenly Breidablik, Balder is of course also a figure in the sky. All figures in the sky seemingly revolves because of the Earth rotation, and different lower celestial figures (star constellations) appears and disappears in the horizon as the Earth orbits the Sun.
My guess is that Balder is connected to the Orion constellation and its annual motion. Going under (dying) and invisible in summer and rising in the winter season.
If so, I´m fairly sure that Odin represents the Milky Way contours on the northern hemisphere and Frigg represents the Milky Way on the southern hemisphere, the "Underworld". - http://native-science.net/MilkyWay.Mythology.Keys.htm
That is in generally: Myths of the primeval deities really tells a concrete astronomical story (also a concrete story of creation) and the Norse “Ragnarok” underpins the cyclical celestial motions as such.
The article says that they were subsumed into the Christian religion as an illustration of the Holy Spirit – makes more sense to say they became what we know as ‘angels’, apart from the fact that angels are considered to be sexless, even though they have a definite feminine cast to their features.

Moa is myth. These were Skeksis!
Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup.
Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

I think you say that out of ignorance. You need to actually visit Europe and travel it's museums and you will change your views after seeing the incredibly rich legacy that has been left by our European ancestors. This is not to say that the orientals haven't had a long and interesting culture, it just isn't mine so I don't appreciate it as much.
Elf/älv means "River" in swedish. It has nothing to do with elves what so ever.
Sorry, it has nothing to do with elves. At all. The so called translation is wrong. Elf/Älv means "RIVER". It has nothing to do with elves.
Regards, Swede from Älvdalen.
It has nothing to do with elves. At all. What so ever. I made a full comment explaining this further down in the comment field.
I am a Swede, with roots from Älvdalen. Honestly, reading these comments and this article, watching non-Swedes loose their shit over this "elven" language... It's cracking me up, honestly. "Elfdalian" is the most inacurate translation ever. Let me explain.
In swedish it's called "Älvdalen" (the region) and "Älvdalska" (The so called language).
Just 300 years ago, we didn't have the letters Ä and V. Instead E and F were used.
This means that "Älvdalen" was spelled "Elfdalen".
Now, here's the thing: Älv/elf DOES NOT MEAN "Elf"!
Älv/elf = RIVER.
Correct translation is Riverdalian, NOT elfdalian.
It has NOTHING what so ever to do with elves!
But, I bet some American or Englishman found "elfdalian" to be far more cool because people will think it has something to do with elves so they just didn't give a shit about the actual meaning.
Hey, that's very interesting stuff. Want to explore even more :)
Ancient Origins seeks to uncover, what we believe, is one of the most important pieces of knowledge we can acquire as human beings – our beginnings.
While many believe that we already hold such knowledge, our view is that there still exists a multitude of anomalies and mysteries in humanity's past that deserve further examination.
We therefore wish to foster an open community that is dedicated to investigating, understanding and explaining the origins of our species on planet earth. To this end, we aim to organize, support and even finance efforts in this direction.
Our aim is to move beyond theories and to present a thorough examination of current research and evidence and to offer alternative viewpoints and explanations to those currently held by mainstream science and archaeology.
Come with us on a journey to explore lost civilisations, sacred writings, ancient places, unexplained artefacts and scientific mysteries while we seek to reconstruct and retell the story of our beginnings.
