1. Some of the Megaliths of Wales
Bryn Cader Faner
Cairn circle
Meirionnydd, Gwynedd
Isolated on a rocky eminence, Bryn Cader Faner is one of the wonders of prehistoric Wales, as stated by Professor Aubrey Burl, and it is certainly one of the most beautiful Bronze Age sites in Britain. It is a small cairn 8,5m (28ft) wide and less than 1m (3ft) high, with fifteen thin slabs leaning out of the mass of the monument like a crown of thorns.

3. Regional patterning among the megaliths of Galicia(NW Spain)
Within the extensive plateau crossed by the upper Mi? there are a vast number of tumuli. Their distribution is fairely homogeneous and they reach densities of up to 6 mounds per km2. The graves goods recovered from some of these monuments bear little relation to those in the costal areas, especially so by the later part of the 3rd Millenium BC. Recent surveys have found that the biggest concentrations of tombs are located near to natural passes or ridges that connect the inland plateau with the eastern districts of La Coru? and Pontevedra Provinces. We suggest that proximity to crossing points between different areas was a important factor in the local setting of the mounds. On a larger scale the same principle might explain the occurence of considerable clusters of monuments close to natural passes between regions that were especialy important during this period

4. Megaliths without Populations?
Megaliths and Evidence : Stones but no Evidence of Sedentary Villages
Dating Mistaken?
"A more current example is provided by the absence of villages or habitations in Western European megalithic areas. After a century of fieldwork, many authors still argue that the megaliths' builders were necessarily sedentary and that their villages will eventually be found."

5. Motifs of Decoration
Classification. Major Types. Pictures.

6. Baalbeck in Lebanon
Baalbek in Lebanon is often described as a Roman edifice yet many see it as a megalithic structure
that later may have been embellished by the Romans.
A very important Roman temple in Lebanon, Baalbek has the largest building stones ever used. Its walls contain stones of about 800 tons each and a 1000 ton stone was apparently abandoned in transit. (the largest movable land based cranes in the world can lift 200 tons, sea based cranes are larger)
Some observers have commented that it appears the stones were reused from an earlier structure. Others insist that only Roman artifacts have been found here.
Scholars insist that evidence of only Roman occupation has been found here. Perhaps they are correct. Yet the only other stones in Roman works approaching this size I am aware of are three found near the base of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, also a site that may have roots much older than known history.

7. In Russia: Don ("Sambation") River Region
 A 09/01/2004 article in Pravda misleadingly entitled "Stonehenge on Don" by Galina Shefer (translation by Anna Pavlovna Ossipova) reports that Alexander Ludov has found rows of megaliths in the European part of Russia in the Aksai river basin. The Aksai is a tributary of the Don River which flows into the Sea of Azov, just northeast of the Black Sea.

8. Brit-Am Megalithic Research To Date
Brit-Am has not been studying this subject with the intensity it deserves.
It is important to us since one of our Biblical Proofs is based upon it.
The dolmens and megalith were the "signposts" Jeremiah told the Israelites to set up along their paths of migration in order in future generations to prove their origins.
"Dolmens and the Bible"

Conventional Research more or less agrees with Brit-Am descriptions of the Megalithic Monument Trail from the area of Israel to the west but disagrees with the dating.
Megalithic structures are dated to a time hundreds (sometimes even thousands!) of years before the Israelites were Exiled by the Assyrians.
A major aspect of our Megalithic research therefore concentrates on clarifying the correct dating of the megalithic monuments.
We have found that megalithic monuments in Western Europe could not have been constructed at an earlier date than the Late Bronze-Early Iron Ages due to  the following reasons.

(a) Population Manpower Requirements. They needed people to erect them and appreciate them.
(b) Technological Prowess Needed to put them up.
(c) Archaeological Findings Indicating Bronze and Iron Age Construction
(d) Length of Year Change and Astronomical Alignments in Accordance with Present Calendar.
(e) Biblical Indications

We will elaborate on the above sub-headings at a later date.

9. Wikipedia: Dolmens of Russia. Pertinent Extracts

Concentrations of megaliths, dolmens and stone labyrinths have been found (but little studied) along Russia?s northern shores with the White Sea and the Barents Sea as well as throughout the Caucasus Mountains.

Most of them are represented by rectangular structures made of stone slabs or cut in rocks with holes in their facade. These dolmens cover the Western Caucasus on both sides of the mountain ridge, in an area of approximately 12.000 square kilometres of Russia and Abkhazia.

The Caucasian dolmens represent a unique type of prehistoric architecture, built with precisely dressed cyclopic stone blocks. The stones were, for example, shaped into 90-degree angles, to be used as corners or were curved to make a perfect circle...

While generally unknown in the rest of Europe, these Russian megaliths are equal to the great megaliths of Europe in terms of age and quality of architecture, but are still of an unknown origin. In spite of the variety of Caucasian monuments, they show strong similarities with megaliths from different parts of Europe and Asia, like the Iberian Peninsula, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Israel and India...

Approximately 3.000 of these megalithic monuments are known in the Western Caucasus, but more are constantly being found, while more and more are also being destroyed.

The dolmens have a limited variety in their architecture... The court is usually outlined by large stone walls, sometimes over a meter high, which enclose the court. It is in this area that Bronze and Iron Age pottery has been found - which helped date these tombs -, along with human remains, bronze tools and silver, gold and semi-precious stone ornaments.

There is a source of water near dolmens all the time, 5-50 meters distance, and sometimes it can be underground.


Megalithic Monuments may serve as proof of the Migratory paths of the Israelite Exiles.

There is much archaeological evidence some of which we have quoted in the past.
