Wheel Of Giants: Mysterious Stone Monument In Golan Heights Is As Old As Stonehenge

 Wheel Of Giants: Mysterious Stone Monument In Golan Heights Is As Old As Stonehenge Rujm_el-Hiri-678x381


The most mysterious structures in the Middle East is easy to miss, it sits in the contested Golan Heights and is so vast that it is best seen from the sky.

The prehistoric stone monument has gone unnoticed for centuries in a bare expanse of field in the disputed region of the Golan Heights.



Archaeologists have dated the ancient megalithic site as being about 5,000 years old or approximately the same age as Stonehenge in Wiltshire.

The monument is known by two names. Its Arabic name is Rujm el-Hiri meaning the ‘stone heap of the wild cat,’ while ts Hebrew name Gilgal Refaim means ‘wheel of giants’ and refers to an ancient race of giants mentioned in the Bible.



However, archaeologists still don’t know who built it, or for that matter why.

Theories include an ancient calendar, or a ‘sky burial’ site  and some believe that the monument may have astronomical significance and could have been used as an observatory.

After Israel captured the territory from Syria in a 1967 war, archaeologists studying an aerial survey spotted a pattern of stone circles not visible from the ground. Subsequent excavations revealed it was one of the oldest and largest structures in the region.

Known as Rujm el-Hiri in Arabic, meaning the “stone heap of the wild cat”, the complex has five concentric circles, the largest more than 500 feet (152 m) wide, and a massive burial chamber in the middle. Its Hebrew name Gilgal Refaim, or “wheel of giants”, refers to an ancient race of giants mentioned in the Bible.

It is up to 5,000 years old, according to most estimates, making it a contemporary of England’s Stonehenge. Unlike the more famous monument built with about 100 huge stones topped by lintels, the Golan structure is made of piles of thousands of smaller basalt rocks that together weigh over 40,000 tons.

“It’s an enigmatic site. We have bits of information, but not the whole picture,” said Uri Berger, an expert on megalithic tombs with the Israel Antiquities Authority.

“Scientists come and are amazed by the site and think up their own theories.”

No one knows who built it, he said. Some think it might have been a nomadic civilisation that settled the area, but it would have required a tremendous support network that itinerants might not have had.

There could be an astrological significance. On the shortest and longest days of the year – the June and December solstices – the sunrise lines up with openings in the rocks, he said.

Standing on the ground inside the complex, it looks like a labyrinth of crumbling stone walls overgrown with weeds. From on top of the five-meter-high burial mound, it is possible to make out a circular pattern. Only from the air does the impressive shape of a massive bull’s-eye clearly emerge.

Shards of pottery and flint tools were found in various excavations to help date the site, Berger said. Scholars generally agree that construction started as early as 3,500 BC and other parts may have been added to over the next two thousand years.

The complex is in an area now used for training by Israel’s military, but visitors can explore the walls and crawl into the 20-foot-long burial chamber on weekends and holidays.
