    Default Mysterious monument near Belfast, Northern Ireland...

    Discovery Channel's investigators believe the site was most likely used by 'Celtic Pagan savages' who made human sacrifices before battle



    Archaeologist Dr Karen Bellinger agreed and found there were large stones visible, making the site most likely to have been a Stone Age henge monument, and that is was likely used by "Celtic Pagan savages".

    Speaking in the Discovery Channel documentary, Dr Mark Altaweel said Celtic tribes were in constant conflict with each other.

    He speculated that before battle, humans including young men and girls were killed here to pacify and please pagan gods.


    He said: "Typically the Celts captured someone to sacrifice them.

    "They would perform these rituals on these mounds, places that were elevated, in a way to bring them closer to their gods."

    Of course they were savages, but then at that time who wasn't?

    Ancient megalithic sites were likely leftovers from the anti-deluvian global civilization.
