Stone Grave – a SUPER ANCIENT STRUCTURE
Stone grave under Melitopol (Ukraine) is one of the oldest temple complexes. It is not just a hill of stone slabs, resembling a grave, but this is a mass grave of dozens of Nations.
Stone Grave – most researchers suggest that it was a natural formation. Scientists suggest that it appeared as follows. Monolithic Sandstone shallow so-called Sarmatian sea slipped on the sand in the cavity, washed by the river, the path split into many boulders. But this is the only in the world of education.
Later, during the Pontian sea, has formed the limestone deposits.
The sea has left, reigned in the desert. Subsequently, it formed the basin of the river that penetrated deep into the earth, and the iron and manganese oxides left on the surface of the sand, forming a stony rock. So gradually arose at this place the Sandstone monolith.
During the melting of the glacier on the North (the border was near present-day Dnepropetrovsk), “big water” flowing down to the South, formed the valleys of the rivers and of the so-called “amphitheater” – huge vimini in the right Bank of the great Breast. They appeared as a result of the rotary movement of a huge mass of water, and due to the natural deepening of the riverbed Dairy huge island appeared on the surface of the valley, under the influence of water and wind, the ancient Sandstone shield shattered, its fragments slipped on the sand, and there was a kind of stone hill with caves and caverns.
Nowadays, the height of the Stone Tomb is 12 meters.
Weathered over millions of years, overgrown with greenish-gray lichen, boulders varied in size, fanciful and fantastic in outline. Today you can see the imprints of shellfish Sarmatian sea.
Years of research led to the discovery of the territory of the reserve over sixty grottoes and caves, on which ceilings there are several thousand rare petroglyphs.
The drawings are very realistic and give an idea of the economy of primitive people of Azov, and their spiritual culture. It is here, in these caves and grottoes, they came to commit their rituals and worship the gods.
The rock carvings in grottoes and caves dated back to the late Paleolithic era to the bronze age and later times. Thus, the chronology of the petroglyphs of the Stone Tomb covers the huge period: from the XVI-XIII BC, up to X-XII centuries.
For a long time in historical scholarship (especially because of the Soviet ideology) was to talk about the so-called primitive people of the Paleolithic period, which were semi-wild, living in caves, did not know such concepts as “family”, and especially “religion”. In short, they were half men, hairy like monkey fur and using stones for hunting and capturing fruit.
But later it was proved that the division of the history depending on the quality of the material from which made the tools (stone, copper, bronze, iron) is untenable. And that iron tools are found in the same sediments of time, when we were supposed to be only a stone.
There is also a version that these people lived in caves because they were wild, but because immediately in the postdiluvian period of seismic activity was very high and built homes quickly destroyed.
Major French scientist, Professor A. Leroi-Gourhan wrote: “the religion of the Paleolithic age came to us in his fine top… a Certain image of universal order of phenomena symbolically transferred there through human and animal characters. This temple – both a microcosm and a Pantheon… We see only a faint shadow of religion Paleolithic. One thing is for sure: these images hide an extremely complex and rich world of ideas, much more complex and rich than was considered still. The order of symbols remains the same for many millennia and this proves the existence of mythology “.
The evidence left by ancient people on the Stone Tomb are proof of that.
On the slabs of the Stone tomb and found images of the cross, referring to the era of the so-called stone age. This finding on the territory of Ukraine along with the many other demonstrates once again that the symbol of the cross is of pagan origin: “in the stone age, bronze age, initially the cross was a symbol of ideas and its directions, or symbolized the sun”.
