Historian Julian Spalding has a new theory about Stonehenge. He found a place for the monument is building a spiritual ceremony.

Stonehenge building structure is as follows:

He published his theories in a new book, titled Realisation: From Seeing to Understanding – The Origins of Art, published by Wilmington Square Books.

Julian Spalding, former director of some of the UK’s leading museums, argues that the stones were foundations for a vast platform, long since lost – ‘a great altar’ raised up high towards the heavens and able to take the weight of hundreds of worshippers.

Part of his evidence lies in ancient civilisations worldwide. As far afield as China, Peru and Turkey, such sacred monuments were built high up, whether on manmade or natural sites, and with circular patterns possibly linked to celestial movements.

It explores our ancestors’ understanding of the world, offering new explanations of iconic works of art and monuments.
