Mystery of Stonehenge ‘Solved’ By Steven C

Wordless and gigantic stones, Stonehenge, are very famous for being mysterious. These heavy and gigantic stone constructions were built by ancient people around 2500b.c. There were many theories for the usage of these constructions. A temple for ancient sun-worshippers, a sacred burial site, or even a kind of massive prehistoric astronomical calculator, but no one knew the truth. However, two British archaeologists declared that they have uncovered the main reason behind the construction of one of the world's best known and least understood landmarks. One of the archaeologists quoted, “We found several reasons to believe that the stones were built as part of a belief in a healing process.” The key to their theory was Stonehenge's double circle of bluestones and the bluestones were prized for the healing properties. Proof was not only in the stones, but skeletons. Skeletons found from the area showed signs of serious diseases or injury. "It could have been a temple, even as it was a healing center." Timothy Darvill, one of the archaeologists said. Do you agree?
