Mike K traveled with me during this trip. We spent time in England and France. In France we met up with a church group I had gotten to work with from San Luis Obispo, California. They are wonderful people. Good memories and great finds during field trips into the countryside and into the museums.
The Elgin Villa in Bath is a great place to start a trip in England. Bath is easy to navigate by simply walking. A couple days there gets your group over jet lag. Then off to London for museum research plus stops at Stonehenge of course.
Our stop at Stonehenge
I believe the reason Stonehenge has widely varying widths of stones is because the stones used to part of two very tall pylons. I believe they were built by an Egyptian Pharaoh named Sesostris who reigned 3292 to 3244 BCE according to Manetho. The pylons were possibly torn down by rebellious people after Sesostris left.
Here is where Manetho placed him in his History of Egypt and what he had to say about the man….
