On one of my recent volleyball trips to New Hampshire, I had to take a side trip to one of the first archaeological sites I ever visited when I was a kid. It used to be called Mystery Hill, but now it is promoted as America’s Stonehenge. I don’t know if this has any connection to Atlantis, but it is a nice reminder that there is more to our history than most of us are aware of.
As it’s name implies, America’s Stonehenge is a stone complex with a central observation point that allows visitors to witness a variety of solar and lunar alignments. I suspect that at one time, there were hundreds of these things all over the North East U.S. Having grown up on a farm, we had an abundance of stone walls. I’m sure some of the early settlers encountered these rocks all over the place and decided to organize them for farming purposes. As such a lot of these structures were probably recycled back into the landscape.
I don’t know if this site was just lucky or if it had some special significance. I do hope to do some analysis on the site, but I haven’t gotten that far yet. Either way it is worth a visit if you are in the area. It is one of the more accessible pre-columbian sites in New England. http://www.stonehengeusa.com/
