Re: Why are archaeologists apparently so dismissive about the existence of the Avebury faces?

Thank you for your messages.

"You asked why archaeologists don't take this seriously - why would they, its not what they do. What people see in the stones is personal to them isn't it - I believe its called simulacra"

Well, there are certainly simulacral effects produced at Avebury, but there are also many actual sculptures, identifiable as such for example by the presence of toolmarks or repeated themes. And yes, simulacra by their nature as mere neurological artifacts are completely personal, but that wouldn't explain situations where different people see the same faces!

An example of tool marks:[...]raphy_avebury/Avebury_066.html

Examples of repeated themes:[...]ury/avebury_diamond_stones.htm[...]phy_avebury/avebury_zenith.htm

Finally I invite anyone interested to visit the following page, and look carefully at the horned face depicted there. Is anyone seriously going to tell me that that face is a simulacra???[...]raphy_avebury/Avebury_026.html

best wishes
