An observatory? A shrine? Now they think Stonehenge was an A&E centre

Lets face it - they are just guessing. Ahhhh - I know - it was an early LHC! :rolleyes:

I propose that funding for these sorts of projects is immediately stopped - the money could instead be given to investment bankers who could p**s it away.

According to the BBC it might have been an ancient mosque, so could do with a modern revamp.

I think it was God* having a bit of a laugh.

It was an early forum for stoneworker contractors to swap tax dodging ideas and complain about immigrants coming over here from Europe and working our stone.

A few pre-history boys out on a stag night getting carried away. Ancient equivalent to putting road cones on the head of a big statue.

Let us examine the cold hard facts.

1. Stonehenge is made up of, um, big stones.
2. It's round(ish).
3. Druids used to gather there.
4. The rays of the Sun do funny things on a certain day.

Conclusion ?

Ancient Man's first outdoor rave destination, where the Druids would munch mistletoe and dance like blissed-out madmen to the rays of the Sun.

I think it was a buy-to-let scheme that went wrong. They wanted to build a huge stone building to let out to pagan worshippers and then there was the stone credit crunch and they ran out of stones.

Probably the same guys who'd just finished the pyramid scheme.

I think it was just a stunt created by people long ago so that people today would think 'what the fuc is that all about?' along with the Pyramids and Swindon.
