This is an ancient monument of huge stone standing on the vast Sablisbury plains in England has captured our imaginations for centuries. It’s the most enigmatic pre-historic monument on earth.
古老的巨石阵屹立在英格兰索尔兹伯里平原上,数世纪以来,它的丰姿赋予了我们丰富的想象力。它是地球上最神秘的史前遗迹。
What makes the structure at Stonehenge unique is the fact that for the first time they"re shaping stones on a massive scale. Dating back as far as 2950B.C.,theories about who built Stonehenge have included the druids and the Greeks. Speculation as to its purpose, range from astronomy to a UFO landing site.
巨石阵是独一无二的,因为它是首次出现的最大规模的成形巨石。究竟是谁建造了巨石阵?这要追溯到公元前2950年,有两种说法:一种认为是特鲁伊特教的教徒,另一种说法则认为是希腊人。有关巨石阵作用的推测也是众说纷纭,上至天文学意义,下至不明飞行体的降落点,尚无定论。
Now a ruin with many of the original stones fallen or removed, this site Sun attracts nearly five thousand tourists everyday.
现在,尽管很多巨石已经倒塌,或给搬走,但是这古迹仍然每天吸引着近五千名观光游客。
Around the same time as the ancient Egyptians were building the pyramids, the first stones arrived here at Stonehenge. The mystery of this stone is that they are only found in the Brescelly Mountains in south Wales, nearly 150 miles away.
差不多就在古埃及人建造金字塔的时候,巨石阵的第一批石头被运达英格兰索尔兹伯里平原。巨石的神秘之处在于,它只能从南威尔士的普雷西山:脉取材,而那里位于150英里开外。
It was a huge job to transport these stones from Wales, because originally there were about 80 of them here at Stonehenge weighing up to four tons each. Now, if I got m my car it would take me about five hours to dive all the way to Wales. But to those people, it would"ve been m enormous distance.
从威尔士搬运石材是个艰巨的工作,因为最初的巨石阵中约有80块巨石,每块重达4吨。现在如果从巨石阵开车去威尔士,全程需要大概5小时。可对于古人来说,这实在是条遥遥长路。
The stones were brought by boat from the mountains and pulled from the coast by sledge to the site.
巨石从大山里开采出来后,先用船只运抵海岸,然后再利用撬具从海岸运到现在的地址。
I think you need a minimum of about 150 people, simply to move one of these massive forty-ton stones.
仅仅是搬运这些重达四十吨的巨石,就需要大约150人。
Getting the stones to the site was an amazing feat, but building Stonehenge was much more complex. It is not just simply one stone piled on to top of another, they"re joined together, this hole in the arch on here that"s been pounded out using stone hammers, and that originally fitted on the top of that stone.
能把巨石运送到这里已是惊人之举,但建造巨石阵所花费的工夫更是复杂。因为巨石并不是简单地堆叠在一起,而是被巧妙地连接在一起:石块拱起部分的孔眼是用石锤开出来的,它原来刚好可以套住顶上另一块巨石的石楦。
After nearly 5,000 years Stonehenge is still standing. We now know how it was built. The question "why" is a bit more problematic. Twenty century followers of ancient mystical beliefs are sure that Stonehenge has a connection with summer and winter solstices. "As a druid, as a priest of the land, I feel Stonehenge to be one of the key sacred temples in the world. Stonehenge evokes in us a connection between some deep ancestral intuitive soul and the power of nature around us."
经历了近五千年的风风雨雨,巨石仍然屹立不倒。现在我们已经知道它是如何建成的了。但问题是,为什么要建造这样一个巨石阵呢?古代密教的世纪追随者则确信不疑:巨石阵与夏至、冬至日有关。"身为特鲁伊特信徒以及这片土地的神职者,我认为巨石阵是世上最重要的圣殿之一。它唤醒我们,在深藏的祖传直觉精神与大自然力量之间是有着某种联系的。"
Nature may well know all the answers, but science has yet to prove its theories. It seems Stonehenge isn"t ready to reveal all its secrets just yet.
大自然也许知道一切答案,但理论有待于用科学去进一步考证。看来巨石阵似乎还不愿意将神秘面纱全部揭开。
