I hope I put this in the proper place. I find archeology to be fascinating. This is an article concerning the circle of stones known as Stonehenge in England. Fascinating history and findings scientists have discovered and believe from the past.

What ancient/Celtic archeological evidence would you like to share?

I to find archeology fascinating. I wish I would have had a brain when I was younger. It is something I have always been interested in and should have taken that direction in my life. Of course when you have people telling you that you are not smart enough, it tends to shape your life differently.

I read that just yesterday about the village found near Stonehenge. Very exciting. Archeology has always been fascinating to me. I'd love to go on a dig!

In November of last year, I had to subcontract an archaeologist to conduct a study within one of work projects. I so wanted to tag along with him, but I was very ill and could not go along. Boy that frustrates me! I missed a great opportunity to work besides a professional archaeologist

That is just a fantastic article. Thanks for posting it! Isn't it wonderful to try and imagine what that ground must have looked like with all those people and all that activity on it?

Here is a link to a site called Mythical Ireland -- the archaeology page. There's a few very recent articles of interest, but keep scrolling down, the whole web page is full of interesting things.

http://www.mythicalireland.com/ancientsites/news/

valpal -- it is so, so, BIGTIME never too late to pursue that interest. Start with the library to find out about your local area, and then to the town records to see what the old sites of interest are, close by. I really hope you do!

Another idea is to subscribe to Archeology magazine, or see if your library has it. It has interesting articles about sites and digs throughout the world.

Stormeil! Love the link you gave to us! That was sooooooooooo fascinating! Thanks so much!

I took both anthropology and archeology courses in college. I got straight A's in anthropology but got F's in archeology! cool.gif sad.gif Go figure. I just wasn't good at remembering all the details in archeology class. I was so disappointed cause I really wanted to go on a dig. sad.gif

Well, I can still read about it all and glad to see there are others who enjoy the field as well! smile.gif

JP! Wow! How exciting! so very sorry you were ill though. no one can help that. Hope you are feeling much better now.

Antwn, I have heard about the Archeology magazine! I have never subscribed to it as I have so many magazines coming to me now.

I think the greatest thing I ever saw was the King Tut exhibit in Los Angeles many years ago. I went alone and stayed there for as long as I wanted! I so loved it!

I used to subscribe to Biblical Archaeology magazine, years ago. But I let it lapse because all they did was argue about the validity of the Dead Sea Scrolls, etc. It got old and boring.

How cool.. Thank you for that Carolina.. hey How is your son doing? Is he still acting? I think about that when I see your name.

I do a lot of arrow head hunting, fossils etc. so much ground to cover out where I live. I like to metal detect also. I found some nice tokens that would sell on ebay for 350 and up....

Thanks again smile.gif

I don't know how I missed the Stonehenge article in all the research I've been doing lately, but THANKS SO MUCH for posting it!!

And then the following links? Call me the biggest geek, but I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Thanks all!!

Oh and anyone interested in stone circles or other prehistorical Celtic stuff, please feel to add me and seek me out. Conversations about this make my day!

Just saw this. Rindy, thanks for asking about my son. He is concemtrating on working the technical side of theater right now. He was Education Production Coordinator at a theater Near Boston, but was "going crazy" from the business side of things. He and his wife moved to California and he's a tech for a theater (stage) near San Francisco. His wife is head of education at another theater. They both love it.
