    In mystic Britain white-robed Priests planned Stonehenge. Stonehenge is a group of standing stones on Salisbury Plain in southern England which date to c. 2000-1800 B.C., the megaliths are enclosed by a circular ditch and embankment that may date to c. 2800. The arrangement of the stones suggests that Stonehenge was used as a religious center and also as an astronomical observatory. The Druids were an order of priests in ancient Gaul and Britain who appear in Welsh and Irish legend as prophets and sorcerers. All yearned for a lost Golden Age. All over the world astrologers from their towers watched the skies, and plotted the precession of our Earth from the Sign of Taurus, the Bull, to Aries, the Ram. During this time the Middle East Empires were developing in upheaval.

   Genesis seems to suggest that the Patriarchs lived in isolation from the rest of the world, but in historical fact they shared with the Babylonians, Egyptians, Canaanites, Hittites, and Cretans a common Mediterranean culture fermented by philosophers from India, even distant Britain. Although the written records of this age are lost, some trade items help us deduce that this may have been so. The Quich'e language of Old Mexico had close affinity with ancient Hebrew. The religion and architecture of Babylon evoked prehistoric Peru; Menes, eldest Son of Sargon, in 2275 B.C. had made a voyage from Sumer to the Sunset Land. Mariners from Crete reached North and South America, followed by proto-Phoenicians from Lagash in the Persian Gulf. Lagash was an ancient city of Sumer in southern Mesopotamia. It flourished c. 2,400 B.C. and after the fall of Akkad (2,180) it enjoyed a classical revival in its sculpture and literature. A rare Egyptian papyrus mentions Central Russia, the Zambesi, and Indonesia; hieroglyphics from Egypt are said to be found near Sydney, Australia." The quote above is from "God and Spacemen of the Ancient Past" W. Raymond Drake, Chapter 13 "Abraham" page 157-174.
