oldest known depiction of Stonehenge ever found is from the
14th century manuscript of the "Roman de Brut" by the poet Wace and
influenced by the account "Historia Regum Brittanniae". It seems to
depict a large human,
who seems to sets a top stone in place. (See image right.) It is likely
that idea, that giants would have aided in the construction of
Stonehenge, could stem from the Biblical stories that mentioned the
existance of giants in the past.

In fact, the Bluestones exist of the type of rock that is today known as diabase or dolerite. Specialized research done by Brittish archaeologists in the year 2008 pointed out that these dolerite Bluestones from Stonehenge contain quartz crystal, which is still being used in the field of today's alternative health care for the same purpose. (See "this article from: "The Guardian".) According to the archaeologists, the complex was percieved as a health resort, a kind of Lourdes from ancient times, because there had been found many skeletons that showed physical injuries, from which not all came from the nearby region.
This approach is in accordance with one theory that the quartz crystal within the stones was meant to harmonize the energy of its direct surroundings, including the water within the surrounding trench by which it became revitalizing and healing water. These crystals would recharge themselves constantly due to the moving ground water and perhaps the magnetic influence of the moon. (Perhaps ionization of the air plays a role in the whole process, by which the air becomes a conductor instead of a resistor.) Quartz crystal is also used In the world of electronics to create a constant frequency or to filter out a certain frequency from other frequencies. Quartz is a piŽzoelectric material, what means that it can generate an electric charge when weight pressure is applied on it. The frequenties that one can generate within the grid of the crystal are used in electronic equipment like quartz clocks and radio's. Because the surrounding standing stones are indeed under the weight pressure of the horizontal laying stones, it seems that they already knew about this effect in the ancient past and that they utilized this practically with a construction that was minimalistic but also very efficiŽnt and durable.
During this research there had also been found charcoal fragments that were dated to 7,000 BC and organic remains within the circle of the Bluestones were dated to 2,300 BC. There had been found four, possibly five, Mesolithic postholes (one may have been a natural tree throw), which were dated to around 8,000 BC.
According to a session of Dr. Douglas James Cottrell, Stonehenge would have been built by the ancient Atlanteans who arrived here to set up a beacon; a light.
Interestingly, the "Michael Teachings" also mention a "beacon" that would not have been Stonehenge itself, but a temple in the shape of a pyramid that stood at the place were there now is a cathedral (the Salisbury Cathedral?). Here Stonehenge would have been a monument that was built at a much later period in time. Although there is no archaeologic evidence to support this claim, it is known that churches and cathedrals were often build at the place of older non-Christian santuaries that were broken down for this purpose.

This seems to relate to a certain passage about Stonehenge from the book: "The Story of Atlantis" (1896) by W. Scott-Elliott:
"A reference to the early inhabitants of our own islands may appropriately be made here, for it was in the early Akkadian days, about 100,000 years ago, that the colony of Initiates who founded Stonehenge landed on these shores -- "these shores" being, of course, the shores of the Scandinavian part of the continent of Europe, as shown in Map No. 3. The initiated priests and their followers appear to have belonged to a very early strain of the Akkadian race--they were taller, fairer, and longer headed than the aborigines of the country, who were a very mixed race, but mostly degenerate remnants of the Rmoahals. As readers of the Transaction of the London Lodge on the "Pyramids and Stonehenge," will know, the rude simplicity of Stonehenge was intended as a protest against the extravagant ornament and over-decoration of the existing temples in Atlantis, where the debased worship of their own images was being carried on by the inhabitants."
