It would seem that even in â€œprehistoricâ€ times, things were done in a big way in Texas. In several instances itâ€™s clear that messing with Texas back in the day would have required dealing with a megalithic wall some twenty miles long and with whomever was behind it.
One of the most frequently linked articles on s8int.com (along with the section on giants) is an article about an ancient, largely buried 20 mile long (3.5 miles x 5.6 miles) wall near Rockwall Texas. In fact that wall, initially discovered around 1852, is the reason Rockwall, Texas is called Rockwall, Texas.
Mainstream archaeologists mostly consider the wall to be a natural formation.
If it is a man made wall, and not simply a natural feature, who in the world built it? Itâ€™s obviously not of recent constructionâ€”it was largely buried which along with its weathering would suggest that it is of great age.
Also of note, the â€œtechnologyâ€ required for its construction seems to be above that typically associated with the Native Americans or for that matter the earlier, technologically superior mound builders, who are a mystery all to themselves. It seems clear that a simple hunting and gathering society would not have had the time or excess manpower needed to build such a megalithic structure.
A 1907 New York Times article entitled â€œDigging for Buried Cityâ€ reported that Mr. J.E. Hess was excavating around the wall in hopes of locating a buried city. He reported that the wall is made up of regularly sized and shaped native sandstone slabs-Â that the wall was buried to a depth of about three feet, and that it was known to be approximately 40 feet high.
As it turns out though, the rockwall at Rockwall wasn’t the only ancient, megalithic 20 mile long wall in Texas. 150 miles away there may have been an even larger construction.
