The Stonehenge Flying Saucer


While there are many theories explaining (or trying to) the Stonehenge megaliths and site, an almost obvious interpretation is that the initial creators of Stonehenge (circa 8000 B.C.) were emulating the craft that brought them or provided “supplies” to them, much in the way that the Cargo Cult peoples emulated World War II aircraft they had seen delivering supplies in the Pacific.



Just as the Akkadian peoples and Egyptian scribes depicted the gods who provided them with cultural artifacts, the Stonehenge creators did the same, but in a more realistic and tangible way, with a construction that duplicated the craft they were familiar with.


Stonehenge’s evolution has been dynamic, with the original site comprised of large stones, ground cover, earthworks, and vegetation insertions that duplicated “flying saucers.”


At some point, later than 3000 B.C., the heft and importance of the craft or “saucers” that interacted with the British Isles people were simulated by megaliths that everyone identifies with Stonehenge.


If exact dates could be determined for construction variables, those could be compared with UFO sightings for the same time periods, which would help serious ufological anthropologists, perhaps, with proof of alien visitations that came in waves.

S. Shklovskii’s contention, in his book with co-author Carl Sagan, Intelligent Life in the Universe [Dell, NY, 1966] that there was an extraterrestrial visitation in and around Sumeria 10,000 years ago, as suggested by Soviet ethnologist M. M. Agrest, is supplemented with von Daniken-like assertions that many extraterrestrial visitation took place for periods before and after 10,000 B.C.

Stonehenge represents at least one of those visitations and very likely many visitations since the Stonehenge construct was imaginatively updated from about 10,000 B.C. (as some scholars date the beginnings of Stonehenge) to 1600 B.C. when further elaboration of the site seemed to stop.

The history of the British Isles, including the legend of King Arthur, is replete with strange occurrences that bespeak of visitations by advanced or superior cultures, well before the Roman invasions of the common era (circa 43 A.D.).


But it is the Stonehenge repository that creates, more specifically than any other site, anywhere else in the world, including the ancient AmerIndian cultures or Egyptian civilizations, a replication that depicts, dramatically, the vehicles that transported alien galactic cultures to Earth.


  • As always, your post was provocative and set off a chain reaction of associations in me.
    Carl Sagan was at some level, a seriously driven and conflicted personality. The man who coined the "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" philosophy didnt let this maxim get in the way of speculation beyond the end of the empirical road, perchance to dream. Skeptics forget this fact and that Sagan sincerely believed that his message sent out beyond the solar system from Earth would likely have a recipient. One of the oddest things about Sagan was his furious ripping on Robert Temple after the Sirius Mystery was published, which essentially only further documented his own theory. Odd.
    One aspect of Stonehenge or the many other circles around the world ( Ohio being a new one ),that is fascinating to speculate about was the highly organized societies which produced them. I tend toward viewing them as vehicles as well however as vehicles for melding a sense of connection with a larger reality of which they and we are a part of, and participate in. There is a growing recognition that these were not the "primitive" cultures that were once assumed to be devoid of knowledge.
    The Dogon's knowledge of a binary star, rotational speed etc as documented in Temples book is extraordinary.
    One last comment is my own sense of appreciation..of loss when I reflect on that so many brilliant explorers of our world like Sagan, Hawkins, etc have passed on and whose shoes have yet to be filled.

  • Bruce:

    Yes, the cultures and peoples of the past were attuned to a reality that many seem to ignore nowadays.

    As for the "thinkers" who have passed, there are replacements but they don't get the "star treatment" (no pun) that Sagan or Einstein got, so we often miss their message.

  • Same thoughts here, it is how I found this post - through key words search.

  • Hopefully in this modern world more people will be open to the concept that 'We Are Not Alone". Look at those other planets now that have been found. In this vast universe of ours how can people be so narrow as to think we are the only intelligent species in existence. And what of all the sightings of UFOs that have occurred in the past and present. 6% of which are unknown. Hopefully we will be able to get more proof that there are other races out there who have technology beyond us and are capable of visiting the earth, and have done so in the past.
