Ryazan Stonehenge. Ancient Observatory: clones or twins

July 5 2005

Two years ago, the Russian archaeologist Ilya Akhmedov made a sensational discovery. In the immediate vicinity of the fort in the village of Staraya Ryazan Saviour Luke found an ancient construction that is similar in structure to English Stonehenge. Its age is estimated to be 4,000 years old. However, unlike his British counterpart, Ryazan Stonehenge was smaller in size, in addition, not stone, and wood. But, according to Akhmedov, and the British observatory originally was also made of wood ...

Over the next two years, such discoveries have occurred across most of Eurasia. Ural, Baikal, Chuvashia, Bashkortostan, Karelia, Yakutia, Adygea, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Germany, Austria and Slovakia - is not an exhaustive list. And did not open the researchers laymen and scholars. Of course, every scientist felt obliged to emphasize that they open the observatory for at least a thousand years older than the famous "hanging stones" in England. But what is contained in a sensational new statements? And the fact that in a given area is an unusual structure, similar to the temple, and slice with the functions of the observatory. As a rule, they are all built on one principle: a clear orientation to the cardinal, with a day of summer and winter equinox, the sun reaches a given point of the sanctuary, built of stones or megaliths, or from the trunks of trees. Next start the nuances, but they have some reason no one pays any attention already. Moreover, almost no one tries to compare all the observatory and to identify common patterns.

In June 2005, in Old Ryazan went to a new expedition. At this time her bones were not archaeologists, and astronomers. The role of an impartial judge, and along with the head of the expedition fell to Andrei Polyakov, journalist and orientalist, known for his expeditions on Mount Ararat in Nakhichevan in search of traces of Noah's ark.

"There is nothing strange in this, - says Polyakov. - At a time when Ilya Akhmedov dug her a sensation on the banks of the Oka in 2003, our expedition explored the Ararat and its vicinity. Some results of the expedition is well known. But there were many of what nobody knew. First, we found two mound of impressive dimensions. Not far from them is churchyard, where the local "black archeologists" have done an impressive state on the findings of the Bronze Age. Secondly, the old Armenian cemetery we found the image ziggurat, which were circulated in ancient Babylon, and by some estimates served as observatories. And thirdly, polusluchayno we ran into some perfect circle, laid on the ground of impressive stones. Structurally, they were stacked like other similar sanctuaries. In one of the ancient manuscripts say that on Mount Ararat were his observations magicians, and saw that the famous Star of Bethlehem, which marked the birth of Christ. And then I flashed the thought - maybe this is the ancient observatory of the Magi. But to me it seemed a fantastic and unreal, because by all indications, if such an observatory and was, then it should be on Mount Ararat itself, rather than away from it. Especially, I am interested to compare how Ararat temple similar to Ryazan. I absolutely trust the conclusions of our archaeologists, but I really wanted to get a conclusion and astroarheologov, and astronomers.

The sanctuary near the Old Ryazan is located on the highest hill near the confluence of two rivers - the Oka and Prony. This place has always been considered "archaeological encyclopedia. Here is a kaleidoscope of cultures, from the Upper Palaeolithic period until the early Middle Ages.'s Found sanctuary was almost by accident.Previous expedition in 1979, not dug all meter to win the point.

Temple is a circle with a diameter of seven meters, marked half-meter thick pillars, between which the same distance, in the center of the circle - a large rectangular pit, and the pole. Wooden poles, of course, not preserved, but are clearly distinguished in the soil around the pit from which they are stuck.

"The edges of the site - even two wells with pillars - said immediately after the excavation Ilya Akhmedov. - Perhaps there were four, but the beach is destroyed by a ravine, part of the temple collapsed. Around this place a few meters to the east dug another hole with a similar post, and in the south has post, which found three years ago, but did not know what to include. "

Within the circumference of two pairs of pillars form the gates, which, if you look at them from the center, seen during the summer sunset. Another pillar of the circular wall, points to the rising star. In the central pit, archaeologists found a small ceramic vessel with a delicate ornament: small dashes marked zigzag, resembling the rays of the sun from above - the series of wavy lines - a symbol of water. The vessel was ascribed to the Bronze Age and the age of the entire structure was estimated at four thousand years: the end of III - beginning of II millennium BC The most amazing thing is that the vessel, the sun is made in the tradition of the steppe peoples who lived in while in the south of Eurasia. According to Ilya Akhmedov, it is very similar to products found in Sintashta - the legendary city of the ancient Aryans in Siberia. Obvious similarity and the vessels Abashevskaya culture prevalent in the Volga and Ural regions. In 2003, archaeologists concluded that the sanctuary is connected with astronomy. There are no settlements close to the temple was not. Old Ryazan and other smaller settlements located away from the findings.

"This is not surprising, - says Andrey Polyakov. - According to the Chinese art of feng shui, to settle at such a point has been fraught with health. Since the energy of the river suddenly changes at this point its direction and can adversely affect human health. Knew about it, not only in China. Around the world people are carefully chosen place of residence. Old Ryazan is located just a few miles away, where everyone has to live, including the unique healing springs. A place for rituals, ceremonies, and, moreover, instrumental observations, defended, usually far from human settlements. Nothing vanity should not interfere with the harmonious cycle of nature. "

Indeed, near Ryazan Stonehenge found no settlements. Nevertheless, we find numerous household objects - ceramics, jewelry, etc.

"Confluence - a place of active energy and is therefore extremely suitable for ritual action - concluded after examining the area of Moscow astronomer Rahashan. - Settlements on the site itself is not. The very ground is clearly on the spot energy peak and is an extremely suitable for observing a flat area on a hill about 5-6 meters along the horizon (except for trees that might not have come at a time) there are no visible barriers. Clear orientation of the rivers - Pronia and Oka, their banks on either side of light, easy descent to the water - all this gave great advantages over other points. "

Ancient sanctuary often coexist with the repository. Death is a conversion of the soul into a new life. Ancient lined up his life in strict accordance with the movement of the sun, moon and other planets. The Sumerians, for example, had an exact knowledge of the structure of the solar system, captured on clay tablets. Numerous burials found at the most famous shrines in Europe, ring-shaped - Stonehenge and Avebury in the UK. The circle has always been a symbol of eternity and infinity.Christian cross in a circle and was captured in the fort Old Ryazan, which was also clearly oriented to the cardinal.

"Observations of celestial objects are almost never conducted in populated and frequented places - emphasizes Rahashan. - Church buildings of Old Ryazan suggest that the very area for observation is away from them, as ministers of the Orthodox Church did not like the built in places pagan cults. Therefore, as a temple, like Stonehenge, where the observations were combined with the worship of deities, the luminaries, are more likely to offer a site near the village of Nikitin, near the confluence of the Prony and the Oka.

Slavic tribes came here in 10-11 centuries. Then there was this new city of Ryazan, the first written mention of it around in 1096 was caught in the Laurentian Chronicle. But it did not lasted long - in 1237 after fierce resistance it burned to the ground Baty. Cruelty of the Mongols was no limit - they spared neither women nor children. The city has not been restored to its previous form. Modern Ryazan - it's another city. In the XVIII century was called Pereslavl Ryazan Ryazan, which after the invasion became the capital of the Ryazan principality.

How long existed in the temple of the Saviour Luke is also not known. And it will hardly be possible in the near future. Starting this year all excavations in Old Ryazan prohibited. According to local residents in this place are going to build a boarding house.

Arch and his like the city, both in Russia and in Europe arose unexpectedly and after 200-300 years, suddenly left them residents.

"Perhaps these ancient tribes, which many call the Aryans, migrated in search of new places - an assumption Andrey Polyakov. - Their life was strictly "regulated" Heaven. But in a wooden observatory did not monitor all the luminaries. They still acted as calendars and clocks. It is known that Stonehenge was also a first timber and only a thousand years later in its place appeared the famous megaliths. Of course, the ancient has amazing knowledge about the structure of the solar system. She described in detail in the apocryphal Book of Enoch. About her know and the Sumerians, who returned and settled in Mesopotamia after the Flood.

It is well known that his first city they built on the site antediluvian cities after a few centuries after the cataclysm. Quite advanced civilization arose suddenly and is still known for certain, from the Sumerians arrived in Mesopotamia. Between the Flood and the emergence of Sumer was a few centuries. Where the "wandering" and drew from their knowledge of the Sumerians, It is not known, as scientists are still wondering what a highly developed tribes roamed throughout Eurasia 4.7 millennia ago, leaving its traces of a developed culture and civilization.

Stonehenge and the arch are at a distance of thousands of kilometers, and the culture of their founders is identical in detail. Whether they knew about each other? Might not know. But the root, obviously, was one. If you follow the logic of the Old Testament, in the post-Flood times, the children of Noah - Hama, Shem and Japhet were to inhabit the whole earth. What they did was evenly dispersed in all directions from Mount Ararat. The descendants of Ham went to Africa, Shem - in Mesopotamia, Japhet - in Eurasia. Most likely, once united the Aryan tribes were divided, and one of them went to Europe and one in Asia.

The ancient language of Sanskrit, confirms this is the best, because all modern Indo-European languages have a single root. But writing, as is known, occurred much later, at a time when the ancient tribes began to fight each other and the knowledge passed down by word of mouth, began to be lost.Nevertheless, despite the minuscule writing of ancient knowledge, it is possible to recreate a true picture of humanity and its history. And then everything will become clear mystery over the key of which beating thoroughly modern man who considers himself the navel of the earth, but does not know a thousandth part of what the ancients knew everything he wanted and what is feared.
