162. The Lost City Of Nan Madol [Science Frontiers Website]
... , has been a recent researcher at Nan Madol. In an interview, Ayres described Nan Madol in these terms: "To withstand time and the sea, the artificial platforms were built in a staggeringly laborious process. Multiton basalt columns, formed by volcanic activity, were stacked horizontally, log-cabin style, to form outer walls. The inside was then filled with coral rubble to form a dry surface several feet above high-tide level. Radiocarbon testing finds signs of human habitation at Nan Madol as early as A.D. 500, and the megalithic construction was completed by about 1500." Besides incongruity and a certain bizarreness, Nan Madol does pose several problems: How were the huge, very heavy prismatic columns of basalt quarried and transported? Why was Nan Madol built at all? Why about 1400 AD did the inhabitants stop building their massive ocean-going canoes and begin a decline?

... size of the stones used. How were they moved? How were the stones-- usually hard basalt-- cut and dressed by artesans with no metal tools harder than copper or bronze? And what was the purpose of the nuraghi? A quick answer to the last question is that they were fortresses, but they might also have been dwellings or storehouses. (Gallin, Lenore; "The Prehistoric Towers of Sardinia," Archaeology, 40:26, September/October 1987.) Reference. The nuraghi and similar megalithic stonework are covered in more detail in our handbook: Ancient Man. This book is described here. From Science Frontiers #55, JAN-FEB 1988.© 1988-2000 William R.

165. Who Built These Chambers? [Science Frontiers Website]
... England. Of these, two seem hardly the work of practical farmers. The first is the Pearson Chamber, at Upton, Massachusetts. It is 10 feet high and 11 feet wide inside-- pretty large for vegetable storage. The second is the Hunt's Brook "souterrain," Montville, Connecticut. It is 38 feet long and only about 3 feet high for most of its length, and ends in a 5-feet-high chamber. We cannot visualize farmers crawling this distance for potatoes! In fact, this structure does resemble the megalithic "souterrains" of Europe. (Egan, Jim; NEARA Journal, 22:6, Summer/Fall 1987. NEARA= New England Antiquities Research Association.) Plan view of Hunt's Brook "souterrain", almost 38 feet long. The dotted lines represent capstones. Adapted from the NEARA Journal. From Science Frontiers #57, MAY-JUN 1988.© 1988-2000 William R.

167. Kentish Catastrophes [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... About fifteen feet down, the quarrymen have struck a solid stone layer, about one to two feet thick, which they have broken up in places in order to reach the gravel beneath. The stone would therefore appear to have been formed in situ during the same period as the gravel. The stone is a hard cemented sandstone of a similar nature, as far as can be ascertained, as sarsen stones which are found in various places in surface deposits in southern England and western Europe and were much used in the building of megalithic monuments. Although a lot of work has apparently been done on the chemical and physical nature of such stone, it is obvious that the experts still have no idea of how, where or when such formations came into existence. It depends on silica being deposited out of solution in order to bind the original sand grains together and over half a dozen theories as to how this could take place have been put forward. It is notable that they all involve slow processes; also, of seven different physical changes which can result ...
168. A CONNECTICUT SOUTERRAIN? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 82: Jul-Aug 1992 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects A CONNECTICUT SOUTERRAIN? Souterrains, such as that figured, are megalithic constructions usually considered to be exclusively of European origin. This look-alike, at Montville, CT, could indicate pre-Columbian contacts. Here are some details: "This underground site is built into a rocky hillside in an isolated region. A 37 ft. passage of straight-sided drywall stonework is interrupted after 8 ft. by a 3 ft. collapsed section. It then continues on for 20 ft. to a little corbelled chamber whose end wall is cut into a roughly quarried and levelled ledge. On the slope around the souterrain are about 100 cairns, some carefully constructed; others appear to be the result of field clearing."

The prevailing explanation of such New England lithic structures ...
169. Europe's Mystery People [Science Frontiers Website]
... across Europe and perhaps even in eastern North America. Two facts set the Basque peoples apart from the other Europeans who have dominated the continent the past 3,000 years: (1) The Basque language is distinctly different; and (2) The Basques have the highest recorded level of Rh-negative blood (roughly twice that of most Europeans), as well as substantially lower levels of Type B blood and a higher incidence of Type O blood. Some probable technological feats of the Basques or their ancestors are: Stonehenge and similar megalithic structures oA unique system of measurement based on the number 7 instead of 10, 12, or 60 Regular visits to North America long before Columbus to fish and to trade for beaver skins. Recently unearthed British customs records show large Basque imports of beaver pelts from 1380-1433. The invention of a sophisticated navigational device called an "abacus."

170. Who Built The Kaimanawa Wall? [Science Frontiers Website]
... New Zealand are the bones of the kiore, a type of rat alien to New Zealand, which was likely introduced by the first settlers. Some kiore bones have been dated as 2,000 years old-- centuries before the first Maoris arrived. Needless to say, New Zealand archeologists and anthropologists are not anxious to drastically revise their fundamental paradigm assigning the discovery and colonization of New Zealand to the Maoris. But Brailsford and Childress are even more iconoclastic: They suggest links to a pre-Polynesian culture; a culture that left similar megalithic structures elsewhere in the Pacific and along the west coast of South America. (Chapple, Geoff; "Megalith Mystery," Listener, p. 28, May 4, 1996. Anonymous; "Kaimanawa Wall a Natural Volcanic Rock Formation," New Zealand Herald, May 4, 1996. Wellwood, Elinore; "Experts Argue over Wall's Origins," Waikato Times, May 8, 1996. Cr. T. Brown.) Comment. See SF#97 for an apparently natural wall at Chatata, Tennessee, ...
