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].
The uprights had been erected and deeply anchored in previous years, so at the International Megalithic Conference in August 2007, the job was to top them with the lintel. 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!
The result is outstanding. What a great thing to have in one’s garden! We might wish the stones were more naturally-shaped so that it resembled Stonehenge more and a torii gate less. 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!
