Staying true to the name of this website I thought I would bring to you a quite interesting Mystery of our past.
Many have used Giants and Merlin, or Merlin like creatures in their books ex….Harry Potter.
What about the mystery of Stonehenge..
Through the works of 12th century romance writer Geoffrey of Monmouth and Medieval and early Modern writers, they have contributed the construction to the Roman’s, the Druids, or the wizard Merlin.
In the process of moving such heavy stones and the notion of them being tremendously heavy and difficult, medieval authors have ascribed the feat to supernatural strength. Geoffrey of Monmouth imagined Merlin moving these sto es from Ireland. A manuscript of the 12th century Roman de Brut based off of Geoffrey’s work, shows Merlin overseeing giants as they lift these stones into place.
It is a quite gifted tale and others have spent their life’s work disputing these theories.
It does set our creative juices flowing however fanciful it may be and allows us to create beings big and small to entertain the readers we love.
IMAGINE LIKE NO OTHER TODAY!
