MMM 408: Drombeg Stone Circle

Also known as the Druid’s Altar, this circle of moderately large stones (quarried nearby, so it was a lot of work but was not a particularly difficult undertaking) was assembled and used between 1100 and 800 BC on the southern tip of Ireland, likely by genuine druids.  As an Irish descendant, it is somewhat spooky to look at this and think that ancestors may have used this site, and possibly for some very unsavory things.

MMM 398: Antequara Dolmens

Sadly, or maybe fortunately, there’s no mystery here.  We know what these were built for and approximately when they were built.  People have lived nearby the entire time, and there was still plenty more stone, so they were never quarried by later people, and were in fact preserved.  These were bronze age burial mounds, built around 1800 BC.

MMM 390: Dwarka

Dwarka?  No, not the modern, coastal city.  This Dwarka.

There are, in fact two sunken Dwarkas.  One just off the coast, and one even farther out.

The ruins have been dated as far back as 10k or even 12k BC, which puts them safely above water until two ancient periods of sea rise as the last major glaciation ended (whether that end was gradual or sudden is hotly debated, with the establishment holding that the ice melted gently over a long time, and a growing number who believe that it came suddenly, and may have coincided with a cosmic impact of some sort).

This isn’t the clearest water, and marine ecology has a way of wearing down most everything people build, so it’s amazing we can see this stuff as well as we can given the time in that environment.dwarka1.jpg

Some columns miraculously still stand.
