  Platon, Timaios- Kritias 113 d. reports  the story of the beginning of Atlantis.

" In  this mountain  there dwelt one  of the  earth primeval men of that  country,
whose  name  was  Evenor,  and  he  had  a
wife named  Leucippe, and  they
had  an  only 
daughter   who   was  called
 Cleito.  The  maiden  had  already 
reached  womanhood, when  her
father
 andf her mother died; Poseidon fell
 in love with  her and  had  intercourse  with 
her, 

-------------------He also begat and brought up five  pairs  of  twin  male  children;
dividing the island   of Atlantis  into  ten  portions,  he  gave  to the first-born of
the  eldest  pair  his  mother's  dwelling  and  the surrounding  allotment, which
was the largest and best, and  made  him 
king  over  the  rest;  the  others  he

made princes, and gave them rule over many men, and
a large territory."

                                                  Megalithic Culture  ?

                             Stonehenge, Atlantis  and Egypt

(Kritias 119 d-e)  At alternate intervals of five and six years the 10 kings of Atlantis met in the temple of Poseidon to consult on matters of government and to administer justice. During this meeting a strange ritual was enacted. After offering up prayers to the gods, the kings were required to hunt bulls, which roamed freely within the temple, and to capture one of them for sacrifice, using only staves and nooses.

The captured animal was led to a bronze column in the temple, on which the laws of Atlantis were inscribed, and was slain so that its blood ran over the sacred inscription. After further ceremony, the kings partook of a banquet and when darkness fell they wrapped themselves in beautiful dark-blue robes, sitting in a circle they gave their judgments, which were recorded at daybreak on tablets of gold.

The kings in Atlantis and the Pharaohs in Egypt had to catch a bull ´armed´ only with a stave and noose.The prince assisted father by pulling the bull on the tail.     Noteable the sacrifice of the bull in Atlantis on a column

P.S.

The Silbury Hill reference article from the English Wikipedia on 24-Jul-2004

 
Other recent work has focused on the role of the surrounding ditch
 which may not have been a simple source of chalk for the hill but

                         a purposeful water-filled barrier placed
                        between the hill and the rest of the world.

It would be dangerous to extrapolate too much from a few, unfinished lines in one author’s treatise of a lost civilisation. Nor do we know all that much about Stonehenge and Avebury. But what we do know, is that both monuments (Stonehenge and Avebury )  seemed to have been sites of burial and ancestor worship. We know that they were located in a very prosperous “hub” of Neolithic Britain – a true civilisation, even though many historians still refuse to label it the
                                        “megalithic civilisation”.
Dare we to suggest that when the plans for this new centre were drawn, that – somehow – its designers had access to the same information Plato consulted, and that they built “the Wiltshire Oval” based on Atlantis? Most archaeologist adhere to isolationist stances, but it is a fact – as Leary highlighted above – that Stonehenge and Avebury were built at a time when Britain was influenced by European cultures.

Could these cultures have introduced the concept of a lost civilisation, which the budding Wiltshire economy then incorporated in its building plans?
