Mystery of Stonehenge Solved

Stonehenge England's Stonehenge has always been surrounded by mystery. How did it come about? How was it constructed? How could it be so perfectly aligned? What exactly was it for? Well now, according to AOL, archeologists digging underneath the site have discovered that Stonehenge was a burial ground. (Some of the) mystery solved!

The date of the cremated remains found at the site seem to be as old as 3000 BC and continued for at least 500 years when the giant stones around the circle were being erected. Read more on AOL. Stonehenge was also, apparently, a settlement with between 300 and 1000 homes.

Of course there are still many mysteries surrounding the site. I am still awed at how precise the stones are laid in terms of planetary placements.
