Masters Of War

Come you masters of war You that build all the guns You that build the death planes You that build all the bombs You that hide behind walls You that hide behind desks I just want you to know I can see through your masks. You that never done nothin' But build to destroy You play with my world Like it's your little toy You put a gun in my hand And you hide from my eyes And you turn and run farther When the fast bullets fly. Like Judas of old You lie and deceive A world war can be won You want me to believe But I see through your eyes And I see through your brain Like I see through the water That runs down my drain. You fasten all the triggers For the others to fire Then you set back and watch When the death count gets higher You hide in your mansion' As young people's blood Flows out of their bodies And is buried in the mud. You've thrown the worst fear That can ever be hurled Fear to bring children Into the world For threatening my baby Unborn and unnamed You ain't worth the blood That runs in your veins. How much do I know To talk out of turn You might say that I'm young You might say I'm unlearned But there's one thing I know Though I'm younger than you That even Jesus would never Forgive what you do. Let me ask you one question Is your money that good Will it buy you forgiveness Do you think that it could I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul. And I hope that you die And your death'll come soon I will follow your casket In the pale afternoon And I'll watch while you're lowered Down to your deathbed And I'll stand over your grave 'Til I'm sure that you're dead.------- Bob Dylan 1963

New research has shed fresh light on Stonehenge’s past, suggesting that it was originally a graveyard and then a venue for mass celebrations that unified the whole of pre-historic Britain.
According to the team of researchers led by archeologist Professor Mike Parker Pearson of University College London, the historic site was in fact older than previously thought and had different functions. 
"In many ways our findings are rewriting the established story of Stonehenge," Parker Pearson said.
Centuries before the iconic stone mega structure was erected, the site on Salisbury Plain may have served as a giant burial ground for important families.  The archeologists excavated more than 50,000 cremated bone fragments belonging to over 60 people throughout a decade of research. The remains of many cremated bodies were marked by the bluestones of Stonehenge, Parker Pearson said. “Clearly these were special people in some way,” he added.
The archeologists claim that the graveyard was built around 3,000 BC – 500 years earlier than the massive rock structure we see today. READ MORE

Not convinced. Pan-British worship is a new idea and seems to smack of soundbite and headline grabbing. The stones were inster-spersed with oak wood beams in the original Stonehenge constuction. And all the stone circles in fact. The Druids get their name from the Celtic word 'drus' which means oak-tree. The priests carried oak wands. The oak wood and apples which grew on the ancient genus of British oaks were sacred to the Druids. Tree worship goes back into deeper time than Stonehenge. Easy to understand really. Trees provided food, shelter, boats, weapons, tools. What's not to like? The Picts and Gaels were not Britons at all in these days and there is nothing to suggest any affinity between the tribes, the religious practices, for example burials, being different but with certain common denominators. The burial methods, such as barrow graves, are traceable to all the Atlantic seabord countries in Europe and North Africa going back thousands of years BC.

Sounds to me like you could start a new career as a guide at Stonehenge. :-)

You seem to have studied this in depth.

Studied the Atlantean cultures, if you can talk about such a thing as a culture, (especially the Celtic ones) for decades now. Won't make me any money though. My redundancy has been postponed again until 'the Summer'. You would think they were sorry to lose me.
