Stonehenge Revealed

by @ 1:49 pm. Filed under Pop Culture, History

I must admit I am disappointed and “a little” upset. Have you heard yet?…British archaeologists have discovered the secret of Stonehenge. You remember Stonehenge? That’s the unusal group of large stones arranged in a circle…the one Chevy Chase knocked down in National Lampoon’s European Vacation. This bundle of rocks has been around for about 5,000 years…and in my entire 56 years of life no one knew its purpose. Sure there has been all kinds of speculation: Stonehenge was an ancient Astronomical Observatory…Stonehenge was a religious complex…Stonehenge was one of the world’s first drive thru fast food restaurants, etc. The speculation went on and on…until this weekend when some really smart people discovered that Stonehenge served as a burial ground…”It is now clear that burials were a major component of Stonehenge in all its main stages, said Mike Parker Pearson an archaeologist at the University of Sheffield in England”. What!?!?!? So, it is like a fancy, dancy cemetery or something…Now, I call that disappointing. I was hoping it was something mystical, something exciting, that it held some hidden secret that when unlocked would benefit all mankind…if you multiple the square root of the weight of each stone times the cosine of the stone’s height then divide the total by pie you’ll have the formular for a clean, inexpensive, renewable energy source, capable of running an automobile and heating a home…but I always have been a dreamer.
