# Stonehenge Builders used Pythagoras theorem 2,000 years before he was born

A new book claims that the Stonehenge builders followed Pythagoras' theorem when they were around 2500 bc. in Great Britain. The Greek mathematician Pythagoras was only around 570 BC. Born in Christ.

One of the most famous landmarks in the United Kingdom, Stonehenge is a symbol of scientific achievement at a time when scientific understanding did not seem likely.

### What is Stonehenge?

Stonehenge, located in southwest England, is a prehistoric monument with standing stones. Perfect for sunrise at the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. There are also eight lines that appear between rectangles and triangles that match seasonal data.

In 201

8, about 9,500 people visited Stonehenge at the summer solstice to see the sun over the heel stone, which is also called the monk's heel] Using the Pythagorean Theorem Before He Was Born

A new book titled "Megalith" claims that the ancient people who designed the Stonehenge followed Pythagoras' theorem. This implies that the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the other two squares on the triangle.

It was developed by the ancient Greek mathematician Pythagoras, who died in 570 BC. Was born. The Stonehenge was, however, 2,000 years before his birth, around 2500 BC. This theory suggests that these ancient people were smarter than what people ascribed to them. To use the Pythagoras theorem, they had to be very skilled in geometry.

The book was published on June 21 to coincide with the summer solstice.

"We think that these people did not have scientific minds first, and above all, they were astronomers and cosmologists," said John Matineau, the publisher of the book, the Telegraph. "They studied long and hard-to-see cycles, and they knew about it when they started planning places like Stonehenge."

### A large Pythagorean triangle in the United Kingdom?

Robin Heath, a contributor to the book, believes there must be a large Pythagorean triangle somewhere in the UK. It is believed that this will be associated with Stonehenge.

Heath also claims that the ancient people who built Stonehenge probably used a rope or other object to represent a time period in terms of sun and moon. He says that this is the place from which the phrase "a length of time" comes from.

Heath says about the book that people should value Stonehenge as an incredible achievement of science. Some people regard Stonehenge as something mythical, but there is a great science behind it.

"People see the Neolithic construction workers of Stonehenge as howling barbarians when they were very learned and forgotten," said Heath] See now:
