The Standing Stones

The standing stones of Rozovets are originally 3 standing stones lined up one behind the other on a North – South axis.

Two stones are still standing. The third one on the North side has fallen backwards in a South to North direction. It is a similar pattern to what we see in Slanchevo.

Each stone is around 5m high and up to 1.8m wide at the base and estimated to weigh around 25 tons.

If we listen to these stones carefully we realise that they form a pyramid. They are laid out on a cross that is aligned to the cardinal points.

The central stone stands slightly taller.

It acts as a pyramidion. The pointed cap of a pyramid. It is the top level.

The 3 standing stones constitute the second level. They fit into a cube ensconced into the triangular shape of the pyramid.

The base forms a cross aligned to the cardinal points. It is the third level.

The North and South branches of the cross are longer. They measure around 5m whilst the East and West branches are only 3m long.

Overall this pyramidal formation has 5 levels.

The standing stones and their base together form the first, second and third levels.

They form a cross that is contained in a 4th level that is 2m lower forming a rectangular base which is itself contained in a 5th level which is wider and lower by 2m.
