Archaeologists have discovered Stonehenge's birthdate, solving one of the historic site's longstanding mysteries
Quote:
The monument's original stones were erected in about 2300 BC, it has been discovered - 300 years later than had previously been thought.

Analysis has indicated that the original circle of bluestones was transported to the site from the Preseli hills, 150 miles away in South Wales - an extraordinary feat.

The finding came in an ambitious project, involving the first dig inside the historic stone circle for 44 years.

@Robert Gentel,
You know I used to consider dragging those stones was quite a feat until I learned that dinosaurs lived back then and the people probably domesticated them as beasts of burden.

@kuvasz,
What did you feed them? Sounds like a stone age energy crisis.

Likely they were some of those "free-range" dinosaurs.
