The ancient Brazilian “Stonehenge” Analyzed
An “Amazon Stonehedge” in Amapa state Brazil has been analyzed recently. Excavations of the site began in 2005. They found ceramic bural urns. When the stone circle was completely excavated, they found 127 blocks of granite standing in an upright circle. The stones appear to be arranged to coincide with winter solstice. The site was first noted in the 19th century but not studied by modern archaeology until recently. The stone circle is dated at 1000 CE. There are multiple explanations for the possible use of this stone circle, ranging from winter solstice or a place of worship, or as hunting markers.
