Has Stonehenge been decoded? | The Prehistory Guys find out.
This is the audio from a Prehistory Guys YouTube video released in March 2022. https://youtu.be/ubMqZv_eozY
Back in February we received an email from whoever deals with Tim Darvill's press releases with an embargoed link to his new paper: 'Keeping Time at Stonehenge'. We felt honoured to be included in a trusted circle - and normally would have done something about it by now, but, as you know, circumstances have been difficult lately and so we're a bit late to the game with this one.
Anyway, here is our breakdown of Professor Darvill's hypothesis that Stonehenge (in Stage 2 - 2,500BC) was constructed to be a monumental perpetual calendar whose purpose was to keep in pace with the solar year. We hope we add some clarity to other reports that have been in the press and that you end up with enough information to make a judgement for yourself about the strength of this idea.
