Can some of you from the UK explain why this has not been more publicized, if it has been posted before, tis new to yours truly.
In fact, the building of henges is (given the social organization and technology of the time) a much greater feat than building the Great Pyramid or other pyramids. There wasn't a large population that lived under the rulership of a single leader. The builders were fairly small groups living under chiefdomships and small kingships with less social organization (no guilds that we seen proof of) -- and I don't know if they had oxen helping them move the stones (oxen were used to move heavy loads in Egypt.)
It has been publicized an awful lot over the years, it is something I have always known about and it isn't my area of interest.

yeah damn skippy, ancient Uk is very mysterious. They were a very tribal people who were very spiritual. It would have taken 2000 years to build stonehenge w/o a modern computer. And little to nothing is known about ancient UK because it was culturally assimilated by Greece, then Rome, then itself. They should protect those ancient sites, stonehenge is tied into the solstices as is the Hopi life plan, and many places in south America.
There are over 4000 dolmens on the coast of Algeria as in ancient UK, and there are stonehenges, menhirs, and dolmens in South America and Australia to name a few...
I could go on and on about them, and how similiar some are from around the world. There was an ostirch petroglyph found in Africa for petes sake!
