The Origins of Stonehenge

September 9, 2018

British researchers unveiled a new theory for the origins of Stonehenge, saying the ancient stone circle was originally a graveyard and venue for mass celebrations. The findings would overturn the long-held belief that Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain was created as a Stone Age astronomical calendar or observatory. A team led by Professor Mike Pearson, University College London said Stonehenge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is both older and had a different function than previously thought. They claim the original Stonehenge appeared to have been a graveyard for elite families built around 3000BC, 500 years earlier than the site that is famous today.
