There are probably unexplained mysteries all over the world, and this one is from England. Thanks to the power of the internet, we can look at a few of these great mysteries and maybe solve a few of them while we are at it! Heck, that's part of the fun, right?
The Carnac Stones
Everyone has heard of Stonehenge, but few know the Carnac Stones. These are 3,000 megalithic stones arranged in perfect lines over a distance of 12 kilometers on the coast of Brittany in the North-West of France. Mythology surrounding the stones says that each stone is a soldier in a Roman legion that Merlin the Wizard turned in to stone. Scientific attempts at an explanation suggests that the stones are most likely an elaborate earthquake detector. The identity of the Neolithic people who built them is unknown.
Ya know, it largely in part to sites like Listverse that we know about places like this. I visit their site often, and might suggest that you spend some time there. It's a great place to learn new things.
Coffee on the patio again. I'm really liking these sunny mornings that remind me of Spring.
