  • 探索巨石阵的秘密

     

    MUCH older than the Great Wall, Stonehenge is one of the world’s most fascinating, but least understood historical sites. Every year, thousands of tourists come to admire Stonehenge’s beauty and to wonder about how and why it was built.   巨石阵的历史比长城都要悠久的多,它是世界上最引人入胜却又最令人难解的历史遗址之一。每年都有成千上万名游客来此观光,为这美丽的巨石阵如何修建及为何而建迷惑不已。   Scientists have dated the site, which is located in England, to around 3000 BC. The stone circle was constructed in a number of stages over hundreds of years. It took millions of man-hours to move and raise the heavy stones.     科学家已经鉴定出了这处位于英格兰的遗址的起始时间,大概是公元前3000年左右。千百年来,这个石阵历经数时数代才终于建成。其间耗费了成百万工人的辛勤劳动来搬抬这些笨重的石头。   Though there are many theories, it is still a mystery why stone-age man dragged such heavy stones over 380 kilometres from where they were made.     至于为什么石器时代的人们要把这些重石头从它的产地拖运380多公里,虽然有很多推测,但至今还是一个未解之谜。   Prehistoric people had only basic wooden tools. To move the stones they probably used tree trunks to roll them along.     史前的人们所有的仅仅是一些基本的木制工具。他们若要搬动这些巨石,恐怕要借助树干来滚动它们。   Some historians believe that Stonehenge was a temple, the site of ancient sacrifices and rituals. Others believe it was a burial place or perhaps even a giant sundial to tell the time. Whatever their ancient use was, the stones have always been a source of fascination for British people. One record from 1135 said the great stones were carried to England by giant magical creatures!     一些史学家认为巨石阵是一处庙宇,是古代举行祭祀和庆典的地方。还有一些人认为这是殡葬之地,甚至还可能是一块巨大的日冕,用来显示时间。不管在古时它们用来做什么,如今对英国人来说,这些巨石已经成为一处魅力之源。据1135年的记载,这些奇妙的石头还是被一些有魔力的巨型生物搬运来英格兰的呢。   In modern times Stonehenge has become a huge hit with tourists.     到了现代,巨石阵已经成为著名的旅游胜地。
