Geocache Description:


Il y a environ 5000 ans, les druides construisirent un mégalithe à "Salisbury Plain" en Angleterre. Ce merveilleux édifice" allait être connu sous le nom de "Stonehenge" que l'on peut voir au waypoint N51.10.977 W001.49.723.
Tous les druides étaient heureux de vivre en Angleterre à l'exception d'une famille qui en avait assez de boire du thé et de manger des sandwichs au concombre tous les jours à 16.30Hrs. Celle-ci décida donc de quitter l'île pour se rendre sur le continent. Elle ne pu cependant se résoudre à abandonner son mégalithe enchanté et décida de l'emporter.
Ils traversèrent ainsi la Manche. Après un long périple, ils arrivèrent dans une région peu fréquentée d'Europe (mais qui plus tard devint célèbre), l'Alsace. Ils décidèrent de s'y installer.
La question primordiale s'était alors posée. Où devaient t-ils ériger les 3 pierres pour qu'elles soient en harmonie avec la lune, les étoiles et le soleil. Après avoir constulté plusieurs fois leur rune favorite, ils firent un calcul sacré qui devait leur révéler l'emplacement exact.
9 degrees 16.863 minutes à l'est et 2 degrees 39.006 minutes au sud du site original.
Malheureusement, ils ne purent dresser leur mégalithe qu'à quelques mètres du lieu sacré, mais ils cachèrent un trésor à l'endroit exact de ce calcul.

About 5000 years ago the ancient Druids constructed a megalith on Salisbury Plain in England. This wonderous edifice was to become known as ‘Stonehenge’ and is to be found at N51.10.977 W001.49.723.
All the Druids were happy living in England except for one family who became bored with having to drink tea and eat cucumber sandwiches everyday at exactly 4.30pm. They decided to leave the island for the European mainland. However, they couldn’t bear the thought of living without their enchanted megalith and so they took with them across the channel, three Megalith stones. After many months traveling they finally arrived in a little known region of Europe (but later to be famous) called Alsace. Here they decided to settle. The burning question though was where to erect their megalith? Based on the harmony between the stars, the moon and the sun and after several consultations of their favourite Rune stones, they made their sacred calculation. This determined the exact position where they should reconstruct their megalith to be:

9 degrees 16.863 minutes East and 2 degrees 39.006 minutes South of the original structure.

Unfortunately, they erected their Megalith just a few metres away from the sacred area but they left a hidden treasure at the very spot obtained from their sacred calculation.
