I don't see where you think the hoax is. It's pretty common knowledge that a large portion of Stonehenge has been rebuilt/repaired.

This video is using actual photographs but telling a 'huge' lie. William Growland oversaw the first major restoration of the monument in 1901 which involved the straightening and concrete setting of sarsen stone number 56 which was in danger of falling. In straightening the stone he moved it about half a metre from its original position. In 1958 the stones were restored again, when three of the standing sarsens were re-erected and set in concrete bases. The last restoration was carried out in 1963 after stone 23 of the Sarsen Circle fell over. It was again re-erected, and the opportunity was taken to concrete three more stones. Later archaeologists, including Christopher Chippindale of the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Cambridge and Brian Edwards of the University of the West of England, campaigned to give the public more knowledge of the various restorations and in 2004 English Heritage included pictures of the work in progress in its book Stonehenge: A History in Photographs. That is where this YouTube'r has got these photos from. the narrative is false and placing the photos completely out of context. The site of Stonehenge has 'never' been cleared of all it's stones, none of the photos in this video show the site at Stonehenge totally clear of stones. The major reconstruction this video claims, is a total lie. The lie falls within the same area as moon hoax theorists? Believe it if you want to.

I had no idea the magnitude of the restoration. AS I'm sure many others did not either.
