Stonehenge

I was looking at an aerial photo of Stonehenge the other day and noticed a flat-topped man-made mound to the north of it (at least north as far as the picture was aligned). The far larger stone circle at Avebury also has the same kind of mound near it. If both the stone circles and mounds were built for religious reasons, it wouldn't be a stretch to imagine the mounds were meant to be moons and the circles earth. If this turns out to be true it would be interesting to see if they also built something to represent the sun. Let's see... the sun is about 389 times the distance between the moon and the earth so where would that put its symbolic mound? Possibly Glastonbury Tor? That's a huge mound to the east of both Stonehenge and Avebury where legend says King Arthur was buried (some people might also find it interesting to know that there's a place called the Chalice Well in Glastonbury where the Holy Grail is supposed to be buried; this would tie in nicely with Glastonbury Tor being the sun to Stonehenge's earth).

Re-Map the World

Let's just assume the water rose.

If you look at a current map of the world you can see that we've built towns and cities near almost every sheltered harbor and river delta. This seems to be part of our nature as a species. That being the case, it would be interesting to use some of the underwater megaliths that have been discovered as markers showing historical sea levels, redraw the world map based on those sea levels, and then send submersibles searching for ruins where harbors and river deltas used to be. This makes more sense than assuming every underwater megalith is the fabled sunken city of Atlantis.
