Your Daily Giant 1/26/2013

You may have seen America Unearthed last night. Obviously the mysteries of Ancient America is the new hot topic and for good reason. I am not going to claim to know who built this site but I will tell you what it is not, colonial. America's Stonehenge in Salem, New Hampshire is probably the most elaborate and controversial stone site in New England. It has been described by Dr. Edward J. Kealy, professor of History at Holy Cross University as “potentially the most important stone complex in the Northern Hemisphere”. In spite of nearly 60 percent of this site being dismantled by road crews to use for building materials decades ago, this 30 acre complex is a mixture of stone chambers, stone solstice and equinox markers, cairns, chimneys, fireplaces and stone drains. The two largest stones here weigh 45 and 70 tons. The site has been carbon dated to at least 2000 B.C. by scientists at Geochron Labs of Cambridge, Mass. while yielding 13 dates from 173 B.C. to 2000 B.C. That dates it's construction half a millennia before the final construction phase of Stonehenge, and like Stonehenge it possesses many precise astronomical alignments. Stone markers throughout the site provide over 200 alignments with the sun, moon and 45 different stars which have been verified by independent researchers. One alignment wall allows a person to observe the southernmost standstill of the moon on its 18.61 year metonic cycle. A period of 18.61 is required to carry the moon to all of its possible positions in respect to the sun. This event is marked at Mystery Hill as the moon passes above the winter solstice stone and then aligns with the terminal of this wall.
I have in my hand a carbon date report from Geochron Labs. Sample GX-1608 May 30th 1966(The day I was born, ha-ha) The sample was collected by archaeologist Jim Whitall and submitted by Robert Stone to Geochron. Harold W. Kruger, technical director writes to Robert Stone, "there is sufficient material for dating, looks like you finally found something interesting at this site with a rather old date of 2995 B.P". Unlike the Mound Builders, whose burial mounds clearly show connection to giant members of society, there is not the same connection in the Northeast. While giant remains have been associated with shell heaps the evidence has not yet connected them to stone structures in New England. I will say however, sites like the Rockwall stone site in Texas and the old stone fort of Tennessee yielded giant remains during excavations there. New Hampshire like every other state in the country has these similar accounts. Guide to the White Mountains and the Lake of New Hampshire. Tripp and Osgood, 1850, pg. 17: “A skeleton was exhumed in this town (Moltonborough) some 30 years ago, of almost fabulous proportions. It was buried in a sandy soil, on the shore of the lake, near the mouth of a small river. It was apparently the skeleton of a man some seven feet high- the jaw bones passing easily over the face of a large man.”
