Lightning Standing Stone Circles

Are some megalithic standing stone cicles designed and constructed to attract lightning strikes? Archaeology survey near Callanish say yes. But why would they need it?

A geophysical survey around one of the stones has astonished archaeologists by revealing a star-shaped pattern formed by one, or possibly multiple, earth-shaking lightning strikes. New technology has exposed a clear pattern covering an area of up to 20 metres in diameter, buried until now beneath peat bogs.

Geophysical techniques have mapped buried features and the new evidence shows that this 1.5-metre-high stone was originally part of another circle with the lightning strike pattern at its centre. The stones’ original positions have been revealed as magnetic anomalies in the survey.

Were megalightning bolts from the heavens such an accepted event that they built structures fit for that purpose?

At site XI, near the Callanish standing stones, have the electromagnetic standing stones previously done their job and a megabolt of lightning already discharged at an older structure beside it?

Remember what Jove used as a weapon – lightning bolts. This is something which occurs in a number of religions.

Thunderbolts from the planetary Gods is a common mythological theme around the world. How or why would ancient civilisations suggest those tiny dots in the sky would and did blast each other and create war on planet Earth?

Comparative plasma mythology has suggested for decades that local and planetary catastrophes and conflagrations were sometimes as a result of the warring gods.

During the Titanomakhy, when Zeus was at war against Cronus and the Titans, he released his brothers, Hades and Poseidon, along with the Cyclops and Hecatoncheires. In turn, the Cyclopes gave Zeus the thunderbolt, a weapon of lightning that was imbued with the power over the sky.

The thunderbolt became a popular symbol of Zeus and continues to be today. Zeus and Zeus alone uses the thunderbolt (unlike the Trident which is used not only by Poseidon, Amphitrite and Triton).

Evidence of a ‘massive’ lightning strike has been found at the centre of a stone circle in the Western Isles.

A single large strike, or many smaller ones on the same spot, left a star-shaped magnetic anomaly at the 4,000-year-old site in Lewis.

Scientists made the discovery at Site XI or Airigh na Beinne Bige, a hillside stone circle now consisting of a single standing stone.

Scientists said the lightning strike, which was indentified in a geophysics survey, could show a potential link between the construction of ancient stone circles and the forces of nature.

Dr Richard Bates, of the University of St Andrews, said: Such clear evidence for lightning strikes is extremely rare in the UK and the association with this stone circle is unlikely to be coincidental.
However, this remarkable evidence suggests that the forces of nature could have been intimately linked with everyday life and beliefs of the early farming communities on the island.

The section shows generally lower resistivity at depth to the north, and high resistivity to the south. From the ground surface to approximately 0.5 m depth, intermediate resistivity (100–150 ohm.m) was measured. To the north, across the peat area, the lower resistivity corresponds to the high conductivity areas shown by the CMD Explorer.
