Spectacular Neolithic works of art discovered on chalk plates at Stonehenge
Stonehenge is one of the most important prehistoric monuments not only in the United Kingdom, but in the world, and what remains of it and that can be enjoyed today is the final stage, according to experts, of a four-part project that was completed about 3,500 years ago. Between 1968 and 2017, four Neolithic chalk plates with illustrations that until now were considered simple etchings made at random were discovered in the enclosure, but a study has concluded that they are one of the most spectacular examples of two-dimensional Neolithic works of art, already a rarity in Britain. The images discovered on the surface of the plates have been mapped by researchers from Wessex Archaeology, whose full findings were published in the journal Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society, and have been dated by the scientists of English Heritage between 2900 a. C. and 2580 a. C.

If for Borges discovering Dostoevsky is equivalent to seeing the sea for the first time and, according to Nabokov, it is an invitation to a deicide, there are plenty of reasons to put his fingers in his biography as he plunged his fingers into the human soul. The Russian novelist did not know the twentieth century, but he described it in advance: guilt, punishment, loneliness, poverty, redemption … Each and every one of the anguish of contemporary man already crackled in the creatures that inhabit his prose .
A future for the ‘Cathedral of the Páramo’ of Burgos
The Villamorón church impresses on the outside, with that imposing bearing that can be seen from afar in the municipality of Villegas (Burgos) and that has earned it the name of the Cathedral of the Páramo, but entering the interior of this monumental Gothic temple causes unease. Its choir, attacked by woodworm, or its altarpiece, which had to be dismantled due to the lamentable state in which it was found, show the damage of years of oblivion, a deterioration that the association
