A new Stonehenge has been discovered in Ireland and this video shot with a drone testifies. Thanks to the drought, the images bring to light a huge circular megalithic temple.
“What the hell is it. I was just saying ‘wow’ and a few bad words ”. He could not believe his eyes Anthony Murphy, the researcher who with his drone was flying over the archaeological site of Brú na Bóinne, a world heritage site and one of the most important in the world for prehistoric remains.
The strong emotion in front of a huge circular megalithic temple in the northeast of Ireland dating back to 4500 years ago, renamed precisely as a new ‘henge’.
Together with photographer Ken Williams, Murphy unintentionally unearthed a priceless heritage.
“We ran home to see the images on the computer, we knew we had shot something sensational,” says the researcher.
The signs in the plain have emerged thanks to the heatwave that has dried up the grass. The last time drought conditions like this occurred in Ireland was 1976. Now the new site will be studied and work will be done to trace a detailed history of the temple.

“It is too early to draw firm conclusions and to determine how the site is aligned. If it were as we think then the azimuth could coincide with the Bealtaine and Lughnasa sunsets, but it is necessary to study more this wonderful discovery. I look forward to hearing much more about this fascinating monument from the experts, ”Murphy says.
It is not the first time that we are faced with discoveries of this magnitude, some time ago, a massive stone complex, probably dating back to over 1500 years ago, was found near the eastern shore of the Caspian Sea in Kazakhstan.
According to the archaeological team, it could have been built by nomadic tribes and would confirm those images released last year by NASA that a Stonehenge would be found in the steppes of central Asia.
