Michigan (USA) – In addition to finding a 10,000 yr old stone which appears to have mastadon carvings on it, new sonar analysis of an underwater rock formation may have located another Stonehenge. The jury is still out, but there is supporting evidence as Michigan is home to other interesting ruins.
In 2007, Mark Holley, a professor of underwater archaeology at Northwestern Michigan College discovered the stones. They had been hired to search for old boat wrecks. And, using a “slightly repurposed” sector scan sonar device, they discovered not only the boat wreck scenes, but also old cars, Civil War wreckage, and one particular formation of rocks that would take some more study.
The stones were arranged in a way which, accounting for underwater movement and/or drift, are mildly similar to those found at Stonehenge. And while there is still some doubt about whether or not man put them there or whether or not they are even a formation, Michigan is home to some unusual archaelogical sites, including the petroglyph sites and standing stones.
So, what do you think? Is it a new Stonehenge? Or just a bunch of unpurposed rocks? They are vertical and spaced about among a relatively otherwise flat bottom. To be honest, it seems like a bunch of rocks to me.
