EDIT: That picture of bare, clean ground in the OP is not actually even the Stonehenge site. I am not sure where it is, but it isn't Stonehenge. The OP should remove it as it is misleading and technically perpetuating a hoax.edit on 22/12/13 by stumason because: (no reason given)

I think it's more down to people not bothering to educate themselves

Well, it's entirely possible that I've missed something.
Has that photograph from the OP been determined to be a fabrication? If so..where is that a photograph of, if not what is presented?
Again..If I screwed up here by not reading every message and replying to an OP, as I sometimes do when it looks well built or self evident, I'll be happy to admit that and move on.

Caption: View to the south showing a section of the circular bank which encloses Stonehenge. Constructed from chalk around 3000 - 2920BC, the bank would have originally have been gleaming white, and visible across the surrounding countryside.
Photographer: R J C Atkinson Date Taken: 1953
I kid you not there is even a thread on GLP that is claiming that they are images from the files of the KGB! Are people that gullible! I guess they are as you only have to do an image search to see how far the completely misrepresented images and story has gone.
I only learned about this a year or so ago and felt massive disappointment when I found out it was rebuilt. I never thought it was a magical or spiritual place...but definitely cool. When I heard that it had been rebuilt and wasn't original I lost all interest in it.
I don't know why they felt the need to rebuild it...hell, let's throw some drywall onto the pyramids to spruce them up.
