The Armenian Stonehenge” is estimated at 7,500 years old
It predates the British Stonehenge by more than 4,500 years. This astronomical site is made of 203 slabs of basalt, some weighing over 50 tons and they stretch for 1/3 of a mile. At the center of the structure stands the stone circle, or henge. There are 85 stones with small holes in them pointing at different angles to the stars in the night sky and to the horizon. It is believed to be the oldest observatory on the planet.
The outline of these stones clearly corresponds to the constellation Cygnus or “The Swan” or “The Vulture”. Oxford professor and geographer, Nicholas Howorth, believes with certainty that Carahunge connects man and his life on earth to the heavens above.
