Moving huge rocks is not unique to any people, the Olmec's transported 30 ton
rocks 100 miles through jungle and swamp.

I find it hard to believe ancient people could accomplish such feats, the time
and effort that had to be spent is no small thing, gathering armies and feeding them in a sparsely populated lands would take strong leader ship over many
life times, and for what ? but the evidence is there, they did it some how.

In this thread you use terms like "Welsh" and "druid".
I never used the word Welsh anywhere. So aside from making an unjustified, hostile attack on me, you are a liar as well.

I think SA confused posts from you and Wolram.

The term "Welsh" was used in the article which Wolram referenced. The people mentioned in the article were traced to what is now Wales, so Wolram was correct in what he posted.

AFAIK these people did not have the wheel or any known method of moving
these stones, so how did they move over 500 tones of stone 200 miles ?
Is quantum teleportation ruled out already?
