A BBC report “suggests that Stonehenge once served as a solar calendar”.

That’s hardly a new discovery. Flanders and Swann were making jokes about it in the 1950’s!
Ah, good old British humor. It’s still some of the funniest stuff out there.
In my research of archeological discoveries is if you add massively more water in the area, the buildings start to make sense as to how they were built and materials movement.
Joel, that's a pretty vague statement. Care to clue us in more, or maybe point us at reading material?
Just started reading a book called "Watching the English" by Kate Fox. It's about the "hidden" rules of English society, the ones that everyone follows without thinking about it. She's an anthropologist and it's written mostly for Americans who get confused when the English aren't just like them but with different accents, and for the English who are too close to see what they do with an independent eye. I'm only one chapter in but so far it's well written and humorous. I look forward to more.
Somehow, I'd never heard "Built up Area" before! Amazing what one misses.
… And now they've got me humming "Uffington Horse".
It must have been a writing assignment for a new hire. Or something.
It starts with "Research showed the stones were added about 2500BC and remained in the same formation, …" Wait! Are you telling me the stones were put in a planned spot and it worked as designed, or are you telling me these massive students didn't move on their own?
I see giant stones moving themselves all the time, but these didn't?
To me, it's a foundation to a massive wooden building back in the day.
Certainly fills in the information of moving stones long distances and how it was constructed and for what purpose.
