"Stories with a Stone"
The sword in the stone at the castle near the village of Thornton, England


Megaliths can be seen on the territory of many countries and continents. This is the name of ancient structures made of huge stones, connected without the use of cement or lime mortar, or huge detached stones. They surprise and inspire respect, magical properties were attributed to them, legends were written about them and tales were told. Let's talk a little about them.

Menhirs, dolmens and cromlechs


Freestanding stones are commonly referred to as menhirs ("long stone"), such as the Ballard stone in County Armagh (Ireland):


And this is Champ Dolent, the tallest vertical menhir in Brittany (9,5 meters):


Anthropomorphic menhirs include the so-called "stone women", many of which have been found in southern Russia, Ukraine, Altai, Tuva, Kazakhstan and Mongolia. This can be seen in the Kamennaya Steppe reserve (Voronezh region):


And on the territory of Mongolia, northern China, Altai Territory, Tuva, Transbaikalia, "deer stones" are found. Most often, they are embossed or applied with ocher drawings of deer, less often - horses, solar signs, or other images. The photo below shows the famous Ivolginsky deer stone, found in the middle of the 22th century, about XNUMX km from the city of Verkhneudinsk:


Now it stands at the Irkutsk Museum of Local Lore.

Several stones, placed so that they become like a table, are called dolmens (literal translation - "table-stone"). In the photo below we see the largest dolmen in France - Roche aux fées, "fairy stone" or "fairy stone", it is located near the city of Essay:


And groups of stones arranged in a circle are cromlech ("rounded place"). In Britain they are also called "henge" (Henge - "fence"). An example is Stonehenge (literally - "stone fence").

And this is the Easter Aquhorthies stone circle, which can be seen in the northeast of Scotland:


Cromlechs, built on top of hills, are called cores ("heap of stones").

All these terms (menhir, dolmen, cromlech) are of Breton origin. But in Adygea dolmens are called "ispun" or "sirp-un" (houses of dwarfs), in Scandinavia - "rese", in Portugal - "anta".

As we have already said, sometimes natural stones became objects of worship, which attracted attention with an unusual shape or huge size, we will also talk about some of them in this article.

Megaliths of legends and fairy tales


Stones with inscriptions mentioned in Russian epics and fairy tales can also be safely considered megaliths. We see one of them in the famous painting by V. Vasnetsov:


Another type of megaliths - stones, under which the heroes found "swords-kladenets": unique blades that clearly belonged to the warriors of other nations. The "baby" is a sword taken from an ancient burial, that is, these stones are tombstones. "Treasure" in this case means a grave (and several graves - a cemetery). Only a real hero can lift or move such a huge tombstone. The heroes of the Scandinavian sagas were looking for such swords not under stones, but in ancient burial mounds, while they had to fight the spirit of the former owner. Such "black archeology" was not considered a shameful occupation either in Russia or in Scandinavia: if a hero or a Viking was not afraid of a meeting with otherworldly forces and turned out to be strong enough to get a sword from the grave, then he deserves it weapons... Folk legends call the owners of the sword-kladenets not only Ilya Muromets and Svyatogor, but also Prophetic Oleg.

Another famous "sword-kladenets" was pulled out of the stone by a young man who became King Arthur.


Sword in stone, modern illustration

This sword is often confused with "Excalibur" (probably from the Welsh Caledbwlch, where сaled - "battle", bwlch - "destruction"). It was this that Arthur received from the Lady of the Lake, Lady Vivien (after the first one broke during his duel with Pelenor).


Sword of the Lady of the Lake, illustration to Tennyson's poem "The Death of Arthur"

And this is what this scene looks like on a miniature from the manuscript "Death of Arthur" (1316, stored in the British National Library):


In the illustration below, the artist “combined” these two swords into one: a sword in a stone, but on a lake:


"Wrong Excalibur"

In fact, Thomas Malory says bluntly:

"In the middle of the lake, Arthur sees, a hand in a sleeve of rich white silk sticks out of the water, and she clutches a good sword in her hand."

Andrzej Sapkowski in his "saga" about The Witcher could not resist a parody, in which Ciri appeared in the role of the Virgin of the Lake, and Sir Galahed, the future guardian of the Grail, in the role of King Arthur. True, he did not receive a sword from this "wrong" Lady of the Lake.

“The sorceress ... either crouched down, hiding under the water up to her nose, and held out her outstretched hand with a sword over the water surface.

The knight ... came to his senses, dropped the reins and, kneeling down, sank onto the wet sand. Now he finally understood who fate had brought him to.

“Stay healthy,” he muttered, holding out his hands. - This is a great honor for me ... Great difference, O Lady of the Lake ... I am Galahad, son of Lancelot of the Lake and Elaine, daughter of King Pelles, master of Caer Benin ... believe me, I really deserve to receive a sword from your hands ...
- I did not get that.
- Sword. I am ready to accept it.
- This is my sword. I won't let anyone touch him.
- But ...
- What "but"?
- Lady of the Lake, when ... She always emerges from the waters and bestows a sword.

The girl was silent for a little, then said:

- Understand. As the saying goes, every country is a custom. I'm sorry, Galahad, or whatever you are, but you ran into the wrong Lady. I don’t give out anything. I don’t give anything. And I do not allow to take it away from me. "

But back to the first sword of King Arthur: according to an older and more substantiated version, this sword simply lay on a stone, crushed by a heavy anvil. That is, Arthur did not pull him out of the stone, but threw the anvil to the ground: it is quite rational and no mysticism. And, by the way, this is already a variant of the "serpentine stone" or "stone of fate." We will talk about such stones in one of the following articles.

Another sword in stone can still be seen in the Cistercian abbey of San Galgano (about 30 km from Siena). The future saint Galgano Guiotti (1148-1181) led a dissolute life in his youth, but one day he heard a voice calling him to repentance. With a sneer, he replied that it would be as easy for him to do as to thrust a sword into a stone, and struck a piece of rock next to him with his blade. To his surprise, the sword easily entered the stone and remained in it forever. At this place, Galgano spent the rest of his life.


Galgano Sword

A chapel was built here, around which an abbey grew over time. In the 1786th century it fell into decay, and in 1924 the bell tower and the roof collapsed. The abbey was never restored, but the chapel was renovated in XNUMX, now it houses a museum. Historians believe that the monks stuck the sword into an "artificial" stone, the manufacturing technology of which was known to medieval architects: crumbs of granite, dolomite or sandstone were added to the solution. It turned out very similar to real stones.

And this sword can be seen in the rock above the entrance to the Abbey of the Virgin Mary in the French town of Rocamadour (135 km north of Toulouse):


Sword in Rocamadour


Rocamadour on the map

How and when he appeared there is unknown, but the ancient legend calls him Roland's sword - Durandal. But the Ronseval Gorge is located on the border of Spain and France - far from Rocamadour, and in the "Song of Roland" nothing about the fate of this sword is reported. It is only said that before his death, the hero tried to smash his sword on stones, but could not do it.

And this is a modern monument "The Sword of the Bloods", which can be seen on the "Trail of Miracles" in the gorge in the Kardavagan canyon (North Ossetia):


According to popular legend, a certain hunter was saved by his blood enemy, after which they, as a sign of reconciliation, stuck a sword into a stone.

Megaliths of Broceliande


A special place in Breton folk mythology is occupied by the famous Broceliande Forest, about which V. Hugo wrote in the novel "93":

“The seven so-called“ black forests ”of Brittany were as follows: the Fougeres forest, which blocked the space between Dol and Avranches. Pronseski, eight miles in circumference. Pemponsky, cut by ravines and streams, almost inaccessible from the side of Benyon, but had a convenient connection with the royalist town of Concornet. Rennes, in which the sounds of the alarm bells of the republican parishes, which were quite numerous in the vicinity of the cities, were heard; in this forest Puise's detachment destroyed Fokard's detachment. The Mashkul forest, in which Sharret was hiding like a wild animal. Garnache, belonging to the La Tremoil, Gauvin and Rogan families. And finally Broselian, owned by the fairies. "


This is not an illustration for a fantasy novel, but a modern photograph of Broceliande. In the background there is a "golden tree" (gilded chestnut), which is surrounded by five black skeletons of burnt trees - a memory of the last fire

Currently, Broceliande is believed to be part of the Pempon Forest. It is in Broceliande that you can see two lakes, one of which is called the "Mirror of the Fairies" (le Miroir aux Fees), and in the second (Comper), according to legends, there was an underwater castle of the fairy Vivienne, a student of Merlin and teacher of Lancelot.


Comper castle on the shore of the lake of the same name

According to one version, it was Vivien (Nimue, Ninev, Lady and Lady of the Lake) who imprisoned the famous magician Merlin, who was in vain for her, in a rock. This was discussed in the article "Arthur, Merlin and the fairies of the Breton cycle".


Gustave Dore. "Rest of Vivienne and Merlin"

In the pictures below by Edward Coley Burne-Jones, Merlin is not represented as a deep old man, but as a young man in full bloom:


Edward Burne-Jones. "Merlin and the Mistress of the Lake"


Edward Coley Burne-Jones. "Enchanted Merlin"

But such a young dandy appears to be in love with Vivienne Merlin in the illustration of Albert Herter:


But, as they say, "you cannot order your heart." In the painting by Gaston Bussieres, we see the only thing that this magician managed to achieve from the Lady of the Lake:


In Broceliande, the spring of Baranton (la Fontaine de Barenton) is still shown, the water of which supposedly heals madness. It was also called the fountain of youth: it was believed that washing with water from it smoothes wrinkles. It is said that a golden ladle once hung on a branch of a tree nearby: if water was taken into it from a spring and poured onto the surrounding stones, it was as if it was starting to rain.


Source Baranton

Baranton was guarded by the Well Knight.

You can see in Broceliande and the "Valley of No Return", the way out of which, at the behest of the fairy Morgana, could not find the knights unfaithful to their ladies.


"Valley of No Return"

And there are megaliths here, some of which are shown in these photos:


"Fairy Vivienne's House"


"Merlin's Grave"

But these megaliths, called de Monteneuf, were found in the south of the Broselian forest only in 1989:


In the next article we will talk about some of the mysteries of the megaliths.

    In Britain they are also called "henge" (Henge - "fence")
    English hedge. Henge is a rarely used term, the name of structures (round or semicircular earthen embankment and stones (optional) around the perimeter), similar to the famous Stonehenge.

    Ancient civilizations were "stone". Structures of stones, several hundred tons each, have come down to us. Moreover, the stones are fitted to each other so that it is impossible to stick a razor blade between them. Riddle.

    Another mystery is the same old weapon - vajdra. Maybe she was used not only as a weapon, but also as a tool for processing such stones.

    The most amazing thing is that never
    I did not associate the “stone at three roads” with dolmens.

    You never know what the glacier is able to drag.

    I don't know why, but Arthur and Lancelot did not become close.
    Ciri, of course, is an interesting character: but Sapkowski did not deeply touch him either.

    So there is something to think about a little.

    What tribe was the Head from which Ruslan took the sword?

      Sapkowski's cycle "about the Witcher" is very "black", sometimes even "dirty", depressing,
      sad and sad. I don't like him either. The best novel of this writer is, perhaps, "The Tower of Jesters" (its sequels are much worse).

        I remembered the movie "The Librarian", where the hero also pulls out a sword from a stone and then sticks it back in. But the second episode is worse. And the third is not that or that at all ... Although initially the idea was good.

        how !! "The Witcher" is one of the greatest creations ... what a quote is from there
        ... The latter finally made out Milva, who strongly scolded Zoltan when he poured into the still warm ash of the fire in the morning, not at all embarrassed by the audience and not paying attention to the rising stench. Having received a reprimand from Milva, Zoltan was not at all embarrassed and said that only two-faced, insidious and prone to denunciations can hide such actions, by which actions they are usually recognized.

    There are quite a few classifications (types and subtypes) of deer stones. The main thing is that "tourists" do not add new "petroglyphs", as it happened in Gorny Altai.

    European megaliths were erected before the 5th millennium AD. - the moment of the invasion of Western Europe by the Erbins - carriers of the haplogroup R1b (the so-called era of stone axes).
    The megalith builders are European carriers of haplogroup G, who settled in a narrow strip in the highlands from the Pamirs through the Iranian and Anatolian highlands, the Balkans, the Alps and the Pyrenees to the British Isles in the Neolithic.
    In Europe, the G carriers were exterminated by the Erbines. In Asia, the highest concentration of G is observed in the Western Caucasus among Ossetians and Abkhaz (up to 100%), Armenians and Georgians (up to 50%), as well as in the Pamirs.

        Prophetic stones were bulletin boards.
        Creditors wrote on them: "If you go to the left, you will be rich." Marriage agencies in the form of a community of matchmakers reported their own: "If you go to the right, you will be married." Well, the direction to the PMC office could be judged by the inscription: "If you go straight, you will be killed."
        The people were simple, there were few desires, everything was clear and were sorted out in directions, so that, on the one hand, there was no competition with a scuffle for the client, and on the other hand, the will of the knight and the freedom of his choice were respected. However, all three choices were almost equal)))

              It seems that the first mention of the Gypsies in an official document is 1733, the decree of Anna Ioannovna, who was concerned that the Gypsies did not pay taxes:
              “In addition to the maintenance of these regiments, determine the fees from the Roma, both in Little Russia they are collected from them, and in the Slobod regiments and in the Great Russian cities and districts assigned to the Slobod regiments, and for this collection to determine a special person, since the Roma are not included in the census written ".
              I wonder if they managed to collect taxes from the gypsies then?

                Judging by the fact that the names of Gypsy, Gypsy, Gyganchuk, Gypsychik were found in the Registers of the Zaporizhzhya Army already in the XNUMXth century, they appeared on the territory of present-day Ukraine a hundred years earlier.

                  And the Gypsies still don’t pay taxes, they steal electricity, marry very early - at the age of 14, in order to give birth to offspring and get a reprieve from the army. And in order not to get into it at all, they breed continuously, receive subsidies from the state for this business and declare that they are pacifists. The Tula province suffered severely from them until recent years, until the local people fell into despair at all, became angry, and the gypsies seemed to have left Tula.

                    We, too, in the early nineties, almost started having problems with the camp that came, but the men immediately took up arms, and the district police officer explained to the gypsies how it would end. They took it right away and went away to hell.

                      Even in our small village, until recently, there were gypsies, and when I saw them, I anxiously grabbed my wallet. And not only me - everyone was tense. Quick-eyed, nimble, with some kind of special fire in the body, not wasted on monotonously exhausting daily activities in production or in the same office, they wasted this fire on inventing schemes, like deceiving me and, naturally, all gullible others ...
                      Now they are gone. Settled somewhere in the far distance, protecting themselves from the crown, the country is large.

      depressant April 19 2021 19: 27

      I had the misfortune to run into - not a prototype, but a follower. It was in the 90s. A man across the street whistled to someone. This whistle with a monstrous pain pierced my heart, almost lost consciousness, and came to my senses for a long time. Since then, I believe that in ancient times there was such a scoundrel who could kill with a whistle and therefore became legendary.
      But the phenomenon is very simple. Every human organ has a natural frequency (this does not mean that the organ vibrates, it means that it can be forced to vibrate). And if an external sound wave of high power coincides in its frequency with the frequency of natural oscillations of an organ, say, of the heart, then resonance is obtained, the heart twitches and can burst. Here I almost fell under this one.

    This is very simple. In fact, they advertise everything. More than a year ago, feeling the danger posed by a drug-addicted neighbor, and based on the realities of my frail door, I asked Yandex if it was possible to buy a combat knife with delivery and how much it would cost. For a month I was haunted by advertising! It turned out that in Russia there are many craftsmen who produce edged weapons, and an innumerable number of varieties of the object of interest to me, up to copies of any historical knives. I was even offered the Koran! Are you a terrorist? Sure, not a problem! We will serve you. It was a real wave of advertising, in which I, swearing, literally drowned. Therefore, it is impossible to say what exactly is advertised as a priority. The Internet adjusts exactly to your needs. He sees them, even if you are not specifically interested in anything, he has already passed into the stage of forming your needs on his own. For example, you accidentally went to some topic in Zen, where the law is discussed in the comments on the forum, say, on real estate - wait for the corresponding advertisement.

      In a halo of clouds at an altitude of 1300 m above sea level, behind waterfalls and lavender fields, one of the most amazing mysteries of the history of Ancient Greece is hidden.
      Drakospito or "dragon houses" is a mystery that has excited the imagination of several generations of researchers. To date, 25 buildings of this group have been discovered. All of them are scattered along the old marble quarries, first discovered by the British geographer Hawkins in 1797. Echoing the locals, he called his discovery the "Dragon's Lair". True, the first serious expedition went to Draskopito only in 1959. It was headed by Nikos Mutsopoulos.
      The design of the "dragon houses" is amazing. Despite the completely illogical location (the slope of the mountain is at a decent height), most of all they resemble the rooms of some ancient hostel. Or at home, just not for an ordinary person, but for a giant (this gives rise to the most daring hypotheses that cyclops are not at all a figment of the imagination of the authors of numerous myths and legends). A huge box made of monolithic multi-ton slabs of absolutely regular shape, a pronounced opening for an entrance with 10-meter columns, an empty space inside the "dwelling" -

      What overwhelming secrets are hidden in the "dragon houses" of Euboea?

        Drakospito of Mount Okhi

        Unfortunately, the most impressive building in this series, the Drakospito of Mount Okhi, is very difficult to reach: it is located quite high in the mountains in an inaccessible place, you need to rent a good SUV and it is better not to meddle without local guides. During the season, there are excursions by off-road vehicles, but not very regularly as the group gathers, but at that moment this did not happen. I had to be content with visiting a more accessible group of similar buildings. hi

          I got interested. Remains are what remains after weathering.
          "Occasions are an isolated mass of mountainous terrain, which remained after the destruction of an unstable part.
          In the 16th century, Spanish researchers decided to go to a distinguished company - to find the legendary “Seven of Golden Cities”. But at the same time, they bumped into the most dangerous earth formations - the remnants. For local plaques, these insulated tall plaques were considered ancient monuments. In the 19th century, the term "rest" became common and quickly came into use by geologists. For thousands of people, people broke their heads over their nature, but now we can explain the process of their formation.
          The rest is a typical insulated chill with a steep and often flat top. The word has French roots and is translated as "little holm" ... "
