Stonehenge

Stonehenge, with its ancient stones standing in stoic silence, has long been a magnet for conspiracy theories and mysteries. One persistent theory suggests extraterrestrial involvement in its construction, proposing that advanced beings from outer space aided or even built the monument. While lacking scientific support, this idea fuels the imagination with visions of ancient astronauts shaping the stones for an unknown cosmic purpose. Other theories delve into the mystical, proposing Stonehenge as a center for ancient rituals, including claims of druidic ceremonies or connections to the legendary King Arthur. The lack of definitive answers about Stonehenge's purpose adds an air of intrigue, allowing conspiracy theories to persist, adding to the mystique of this enigmatic prehistoric monument.
