In accordance with Henginess Rule number 4, we are once more posting a simple trilithon. But what an illustrious group of megalithic engineers contributed to its making! We’ve mentioned Pavel Pavel here before, but others prominent in the megalith moving movement were present also. [See this link].

Two different methods were used in an effort to compare them, as is described on the page linked above. This is how to build your own ancient wonder!

But the torii gate’s symbolism of passing from the sacred into the profane or vice versa is not irrelevant to the psychological power of the trilithon.

Score: 5½ druids. Not a Stonehenge replica in full, but a nice gesture to the original builders!

Anyone who would like to read a very informative article by Rob Roy on the process of this trilithon’s building, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will send it to you.
