Large Bronze Age standing stone found in Switzerland

Oct 25, 2017

Archaeologists have found a large standing stone in Switzerland that may have once been a place of worship for a Bronze Age settlement. The stone is thought to be a menhir, a type of sacred upright stone erected by prehistoric humans. The three-tonne, oval-shaped sandstone reaches two metres (6.5 ft) high and 1.3 metres (4.3 ft) wide, and narrows at one end to form a rounded tip. Archaeologists say the monument is between 4,000 and 5,000 years old, and markings around the site suggest it could have formed part of a series of standing stones like Stonehenge. Scroll down for video Archaeologists have found a large standing stone (pictured) in Switzerland that may have once been a place of worship during the Bronze Age. The stone is thought to be a a menhir, a type of sacred upright stone erected by prehistoric humans MENHIRS  The stone is thought to be a a menhir, a type of sacred upright stone erected by prehistoric humans. Menhirs can be found solely as monoliths, or as part of a group of similar stones like Stonehenge. The size of the monuments can vary considerably, but they are generally uneven and squared, often tapering toward the top. The monuments are common across Europe Asia and Africa, but the majority are found in western Europe. They were often used as the sites of ancient religious ceremonies, and were sometimes erected next to sacred buildings. It was uncovered lying on its side during excavations of a Bronze Age site in the Swiss village of Breitnacher, just south of the capital, Bern. A prehistoric settlement believed to be 3,500 years old was also uncovered during the excavations, led by experts at the Canton of Bern Archaeology Department. The find was the result of a preliminary archaeological survey before the construction of a new housing complex. The researchers say the stone could have originally been placed somewhere else but then moved to the settlement after it was built. But due to the monument's proximity to Bronze Age houses, the settlement may have been built there after the stone was erected. Little is known about Switzerland's Bronze Age populations, and the menhir is one of only 15 found in the country to date.

The monuments are common across Europe Asia and Africa, but the majority are found in western Europe. They were often used as the sites of ancient religious ceremonies, and were sometimes erected next to sacred buildings. In a statement, the Canton of Bern Archaeology Department said: 'To date, only about fifteen isolated menhirs have been discovered in Switzerland. Archaeologists say it is between 4,000 and 5,000 years old, and markings around the site suggest the monument could have been a monolith or formed part of a series of standing stones like Stonehenge WHY WAS STONEHENGE BUILT? Experts have suggested it was a temple, parliament and even a graveyard. Some people think the stones have healing powers, while others think they have musical properties when struck with a stone. They could have acted as a giant musical instrument to call ancient people to the monument. No one is exactly sure why, or even how, Stonehenge was built. Experts have suggested it was a temple, parliament and even a graveyard  There is evidence the stones were aligned with phases of the sun, and some have proposed it was used as a giant observatory to monitor the stars. People were buried there and skeletal evidence shows that some travelled hundreds of miles to visit Stonehenge - though no one knows why. Recently, experts said the route was a busy one and that Stonehenge could be viewed differently from different positions. It seems that instead of being a complete barrier, the Neolithic structure acted as a gateway to guide visitors to the stone circle. 'These are usually simple blocks from one to four metres high. The best example of the canton of Bern is for the moment in Sutz-Lattrigen, on Lake Biel. 'The discovery of a menhir at Kehrsatz would therefore be an event.' It said experts will determine whether or not the stone is a menhir by studying the site for stones with similar soil markings around them. 'This discovery would be all the more interesting because, with the exception of a few isolated finds, very little is known about the Stone Age settlement around the city of Bern,' it said. The stone was uncovered lying on its side during excavations of a Bronze Age site in the Swiss village of Breitnacher, just south of the capital, Bern
