Stonehenge was given a complete 3D-scanning treatment, generating 850 gigabytes of data. Archeologists put software from Bentley Systems to work to analyze the data. The resulting data crunching showed 72 carvings depicting Bronze Age tools that had been hiding from the naked eye for thousands of years. Almost all show ax heads, but one is likely a dagger.…
The ax-shaped carvings show a certain obsession with the tool shape. All of the ax blades face upward. Some Stonehenge carvings had already been located through visual inspections, but these new carvings reveal a treasure trove of ancient art.
That is an oddly random and erratic placement of the carvings as well....reminds me a bit of what football players do with their helmets when they put sticker on them for a win. Maybe this was whatever group putting a "win" on their gathering spot after a big battle and marking it with an axe?
I think the 'axe' designs on the henge are just that. The "Hammer of Thor" you cite, I think is an inukshuk. Its discoverer, if I may call him that, (cuz the locals knew where it was...no disrespect to him or them) had controversial elements to his career (google Sheguiandah).

For me, the marks bring to mind the 'Hammer of Thor' (HoT). This silhouette is meant to refer to a megalithic monument in Canada (of all places), But to me it seemed to help bring the HoT design more in to focus; it is also interesting that some researchers attribute the Canadian megalith to the vikings.
