A thousand year construction, Bronze age, Beaker culture, long period of use, midwinter alignment, ruddy great bovines roaming the place...all quite interesting. Unfortunately, I find it hard to picture ritual use (which no doubt evolved over time) at Stonehenge without images of modern 'reenactments' druidic festivals on the site, so ingrained they've become.

I wonder what's known of the original henge's use.

Hi Nick,
It was a regional cemetery overseen by the moon, though it had a few solar undertones.

Interesting. The videos, though, seemed to describe vastly more animal bones than human remains. What's the evidence for Stonehenge as regional cemetery rather than an incidental burial location?

Sorry, that should have said 'What's the evidence for the original henge as a regional cemetery rather than an incidental burial location?'
