Stonehenge Awakens

Attached is a BBC article describing the resent and unexplained appearance of stone sculpted faces at Stonehenge. The archeologist is 'baffled'. Naturally, he doesn't know that the hub that points to Stonehenge, and other places, is Angel's Lair.

These are three pics taken from the news story.

It is the first face ever seen on the Neolithic monument  and one of the oldest works of art ever found in Britain.

It was recognized by Terrence Meaden, an archaeologist with a fascination for the ancient standing stones of the British
Isles.

"I just happened to be there at the right time of day  because only when the light  is right can you see it                              properly. During the summer months it is only obvious for about a hour each day around 1400."

It is amazing that it has never been recognized before.

Dr Meaden believes that it was missed because previous  researchers concentrated on the fronts of the standing
stones and not their sides.
 

The particular viewing  conditions to see it at its best will have also played a part in it not being seen.

But once you see it it's obvious," he says.

 It seems to carry a serious expression, almost a frown,  as it looks across the Salisbury plain.

Stonehenge was built about  2450 BC but why does Dr  Meaden believe the carving  was made at the time and
 was not done much later.

"Why would anyone do that?" he asks, "The type of stone, Sarsen, is the hardest stone know to man. It
 would have taken hundreds of hours working on a  platform to do it. Why bother?"

 Meaden's photographs are being evaluated by other archaeologists.

 He also claims that other faces can clearly be seen on the Avebury stones not far from Stonehenge.

 But who is the face of Stonehenge?

"We will never know," says Meaden, "He could be the  patron of the monument or even its architect. Perhaps
  the designer of Stonehenge has been looking at us for  four thousand years and we didn't see him."
