A Retired Carpenter Solves a 3000-Year-Old Architectural Mystery

Want to build your own Stonehenge? This retired carpenter has done it, without machinery.

Through the ages, Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England has proven to be a mystery. Many experts have descended upon the architectural masterpiece to study it, but to this day many mysteries still surround the megalith. Where did it come from? How did the great Neolithic people move the stones? How was it possible to lift the stones? Were there any other uses for it besides an ancient burial ground?

Stonehenge

It seems W.T. Wallington, a retired carpenter, may have provided an answer. This skilled carpenter says that he has built his own backyard Stonehenge and did so by himself. Wallington is no scientist, but he has provided an ingenious method that, according to him, is just simple physics.

He explains that many times on the job he had to improvise when tackling a difficult task; such moments can provide an answer when there seems to be no solution. For one of his most challenging tasks, he had to remove a 1,200 ton, saw-cut concrete block. He did not have a machine that could handle the 1,200-pound block.

The obvious solution to this problem was too labor-intensive and time-consuming. He said that he did not have time to sledgehammer the big block into manageable sizes, so he improvised with a simple technique of leveraging the block onto two pebbles. This simple yet ingenious technique worked and allowed him to raise the block.

This marked the beginning of the carpenter’s obsession with Stonehenge. He believes that this is a plausible explanation for how it was constructed, but could it have been that simple? As Wallington has demonstrated many times, it could. Usually demonstrating his theories at home in front of family and friends, the retired professional has convinced them.

After his retirement, he had the time to put his theories to the test. He started out with one-ton blocks, and his technique made it easy for him to stack them up and move them around. So he tested his process on a 2,400-pound block, which he was able to move 300 feet. Soon he found himself moving a barn that measured 30 ft. by 40 ft. and was 16 feet tall. He did this by himself after reinforcing the barn, moving it 6 feet per day with ease.

Mr. Wallington says he is no scientist, just a retired carpenter that improvised to solve a modern-day problem. His solution could provide a reasonable answer to an ancient mystery. According to and proven by him, this technique could explain how Stonehenge was built, since it is so effective even with only one person doing the work. More surprisingly, it’s all done without the use of wheels, hoists, pulleys, or ropes, Minds reported.

It’s yet to be seen if this theory is accepted by modern-day researchers. But it still provides an exciting answer to an age-old mystery; one that has caused the carpenter to swear that he will recreate his own Stonehenge in his backyard.
