A new study has found that for centuries Stonehenge was a burial ground (perhaps also home to a drum circle or two?):
"Stonehenge was a place of burial from its beginning to its zenith in the mid third millennium B.C. The cremation burial dating to Stonehenge’s sarsen stones phase is likely just one of many from this later period of the monument’s use and demonstrates that it was still very much a domain of the dead," Parker Pearson said in a statement.
The researchers also excavated homes nearby at Durrington Walls, which they said appeared to be seasonal homes related to Stonehenge.
Okay, I know I’m just in a goofy mood today, but I’m cracking myself up over here with seasonal homes of the dead stuff.
