Could this be one of the dark secrets of history and archaeologists don't talk about it?.
What we see is not the creation of prehistoric people but it has been created by the heritage industry.
For decades the official Stonehenge guidebooks have been full of fascinating facts and figures and theories surrounding the world's greatest prehistoric monument. What the brochures do not mention, however, is the systematic rebuilding of the 4,000 year old stone circle throughout the 20th Century. The information is markedly absent from the guidebooks and info-phones used by tourists at the site.
The Stonehenge makeover was carried out from 1901 to 1964 - (1901, 1919, 1920, 1954 to 1958 and 1964.)
Now, a Russian website shows stunning photos of what appears to be Stonehenge rebuilt in the years 1954 to 1958.
Here are some of the stunning photo's provided by the Russian website:
plenty more photos here: PHOTOS and LINK to russian website.
I also found this site: How they rebuilt Stonehenge
Furthermore, the Russian author provides detailed information about how the British government/military rebuilt the Stonehenge site. (Use Google translate if you visit the Russian site.)
So despite the photo's appear to be authentic, the question remains: Stonehenge is rebuilt and the photographs are evidence of the makeover?, or the photos show a replica, built at a different location?.
