"While the Dolmen of Guadalperal has widely been compared to Stonehenge—and rightly so—the Spanish example was once an entirely enclosed space. And it could also be around 2,000 years older."
kind of dovetails to https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/celts-des...
" A team from Oxford University has discovered that the Celts, Britain's indigenous people, are descended from a tribe of Iberian fishermen who crossed the Bay of Biscay 6,000 years ago."
There were movements of people, and movements of culture, which could be separate, but Celts are late Indo-European arrivals to the British Isles, either directly from the Celtic heartland in Germany, or indirectly along the western coasts from Spain.
The Celts just happened to be the culture in place when the first accounts were written by the Greeks and Romans. So they have self-appointed themselves to be poor down-trodden invaded brutalized indigenous people - but they were just the previous wave of ruthless invaders!
There were people in the British Isles 10s and 100s of thousands of years ago. Britain was wiped clean by ice ages and repopulated. Britain was connected to Europe by a land bridge, etc. etc. All this long before the Celts turned up.
There is no Celtic presence in Britain before about 500 BC. Stonehenge and Guadalperal are much, much too old to have been built by the Celts. Celtic druids did not build Stonehenge.
Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris - dunno what happened with this. Overshadowed by:
Paris terrorist attack on stadium and club - 130 people died
Charleston Church shooting - Replaced by more shootings that happened afterwards (in that year alone: Roseburg, Lafayette, Chattanooga, Planned Parenthood, San Bernardino). Thoughts, prayers, and calls for gun control even if neither of those fix the underlying issues.
European Refugee crisis - Agreements with Turkey and Libya have turned this 'crisis' around, but, more boats are arriving in Greece lately.
Just a few examples I blatantly copied off of a website. Nobody talks about these things anymore because Trump used a sharpie.
All the accusations Bush 43 made against the democrats for being Russian-leaning communists contradicts today’s politics badly.
The stimulus checks to stabilize the economy during descent into the Great Recession.
The interruption of Pres Obamas first state of the union. Just how abnormal that was seems to have simultaneously led to today’s lack of governmental progress and yet been not just forgiven but embraced and promulgated.
I don't recall Bush 43 accusing Democrats of being "Russian-leaning communists" even one single time, let alone so often you could talk about "all" the times he did it. I loathed nearly everything about Bush 43 and his administration, but can you cite an example or two (more would be better) where this actually happened?
I don't know if it's my memory that's faulty or yours, but you're the one lamenting our poor memory of recent events and I don't believe these particular recent events even happened.
> At the time, George W. Bush was campaigning for the presidency, lambasting President Clinton's chummy relationship with Russian President Boris Yeltsin. Bush promised to end personal favoritism and protect American national security. Taking office the following year, he began by expelling 50 Russian diplomats from Washington for alleged spying. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld snubbed the Russian defense minister soon after by refusing to meet him on the sidelines of a NATO conference.
At any rate, I'm not trying to lambaste you, but it does seem ironic that you're criticizing people in general for having poor memories about the recent past when your own memories seem fairly hazy and inaccurate.
I have to say, I am totally with the zeitgeist in terms of recent interest in the early neolithic and late paleolithic. These are fascinating to me. It's particularly fascinating how widespread (both time and place) the motifs are, structural and functional/symbolic. Celestial-solar calendars. There are similarities to British henges and Irish granges. I'm sure there are (the
BTB...Are they really going to re-submerge this site (or move it)?!! It seems insane.

Better to put it away very deep, where erosion and tectonic shifts won't expose it for a million years and just forget about it. I read something about putting it in deep boreholes the other day.
