‘Underwater Stonehenge’ Pop-Up Event Taking Place This Weekend


If you happen to be in Switzerland this weekend, you might want to check out a pop-up event on human-made stones that were recently found at the bottom of Lake Constance.

Scientists have put together clues that lead them to believe this “Underwater Stonehenge” group of rocks were built by humans sometime between 4300 BCE and 2000 BCE.

The Museum of Archaeology of the Canton of Thurgau is holding a pop-up event Friday November 25th and Saturday November 26th at the future location of the Canton of Thurgau’s New Historical Museum.

Archaeologists will be presenting their latest scientific findings. One of the highlights of the event will be a presentation of a master’s thesis titled “Sunken Landscape” by Livia Enderli, which was written at the Zurich University of the Arts.
