MYS­TE­RI­OUS MON­U­MENT

Chat It's Fate - - Chats it's fate -

Talk­ing of an­cient mon­u­ments that have baf­fled peo­ple for cen­turies, re­searchers at Stone­henge have dis­cov­ered that the cre­mated re­mains of an­cient peo­ple found buried at the site were not lo­cals. They came from Wales – the same place where the stones them­selves orig­i­nated. A re­port in the jour­nal Sci­en­tific

Re­ports said that Stone­henge was ‘one of the largest Late Ne­olithic burial sites known in Bri­tain,’ with the re­mains of up to 58 peo­ple dis­cov­ered there in ex­ca­va­tions be­tween 1919 and 1926. At least 10 of these peo­ple def­i­nitely weren’t lo­cal to Sal­is­bury Plain.

Could they have been in­volved in what must have been the ab­so­lutely mam­moth task of trans­port­ing the stones from Wales?

Maybe one day we’ll fi­nally know all the se­crets of this mag­i­cal stone cir­cle.
