The secret of Stonehenge has apparently been solved: The mysterious circle of large stones in southern England was primarily a burial ground for almost five centuries, and the site probably holds the remains of a family that long ruled the area, new research concludes.
At least part of the mystery of Stonehenge may have now been solved: It was from the beginning a monument to the dead.
