Wally Wallington building Modern Stonehenge by his own power.

03/31/2008 7:30 PM

Wally Wallington is building a modern full size Stonehenge by himself, with no power equipment. He has developed techniques on his own(?), and is building by himself. See the youtube.com video, then tell me if this is just well known technique applied. New original techniques, or ancient engineering rediscovered. Wally is not college trained, just a construction guy. He has also moved a large pole barn 300 feet by himself.

It reminds me of how I have moved heavy boxes and furniture by turning them over on their corner points.

Just search youtube.com for Stonehenge.

Wally Wallington IIRC developed his ideas to explain one of the best practical descriptions of how the big stone blocks of the Egyptian Pyramids were built.

See The Forgotten Technology using simple methods to accomplish Herculean tasks!

His web site shows some of his methods and a CD is available with much more.

A much better explanation than suggestions that the stones were actually concrete cast in place. No consideration of the fuel necessary to make the cement, or how the cement and water would be moved mixed, cast, and finished.

I read geology at university and am confident that a geologist or certainly a mineralogist can tell the difference between concrete and stone. I believe the stones have been comprehensively studied.

The first question that comes to mind is how much power does this represent-

2400 lb x 300 ft per hour works out to about 0.36 Hp or 0.27 kW. OK. It's believable.

I've seen some of what Mr. Wallington can do before. He has some pretty amazing feats to talk (as my Granddad used to say, if you really can do it, it ain't bragging, it's just describing) about. I don't know (and neither does he) if the techniques he uses are newly discovered, or repetitions of what ancient builders accomplished. Overall, it doesn't much matter, but they are so simple in concept, I'd bet they were used many times in many places from the Mediterranean to Micronesia. In both directions.

Your comments make little sense in the context of this Blog.....

What were you trying to say?

I do understand, I feel I would have done much earlier if you had used correct punctuation and proper language in the first place.......

I guess you were making some point that only you fully understood at the time......

Ummm...now I get to be the confused one, I guess - I just stepped in with a website for you to clarify things. The original reference to Ed's Coral Castle wasn't mine, I just knew a bit about it and looked him up for ya. (No charge, BTW...)
