    Absolutely fascinating. Stonehenge has been stirring the minds and hearts of people for millennia. It’s so important to document these wonders, and to keep track of the interpretations over time. Science and history interweave into an ever-changing tapestry of how mankind views itself and nature. The links are excellent, and lead to even more fascination. Seeing the damage that is being done to the beauty of Syria is heart-breaking and angering.

    • At least there are many people around the world diligently working to preserve and share their historical heritage. The digitization efforts never cease to amaze me, because as a child I never imagined having access to this much information at home and so easily accessible. The carnage is heartbreaking though, the human toll (136,00 and climbing) more so than the cultural treasures.

    on the topic of from this post.
