    In ancient times...
    Hundreds of years before the dawn of history
    Lived a strange race of people... the Druids

    No one knows who they were or what they were doing
    But their legacy remains
    Hewn into the living rock... Of Stonehenge

    Stonehenge! Where the demons dwell
    Where the banshees live and they do live well
    Stonehenge! Where a man's a man
    And the children dance to the Pipes of Pan


    Stonehenge! 'Tis a magic place
    Where the moon doth rise with a dragon's face
    Stonehenge! Where the virgins lie
    And the prayers of devils fill the midnight sky

    And you my love, won't you take my hand?

    We'll go back in time to that mystic land
    Where the dew drops cry and the cats meow
    I will take you there, I will show you how


    And oh how they danced
    The little children of Stonehenge
    Beneath the haunted moon
    For fear that daybreak might come too soon

    And where are they now?
    The little children of Stonehenge
    And what would they say to us?
    If they were here... tonight

    • My life is so successfull
      I've got everything a man could ever need.

      Got a 1000 dollar haircut
      And I even have a talkshow on TV.

      And I know I should be happy, but instead
      There's a question I can't get out of my head.

      What's the meaning of Stonehenge?
      It's killing me that no one knows
      Why it was built 5000 years ago.

      Why did they build the Stonehenge?
      How could they raise the stones so high
      Completely without the technology
      We have today?

      When I make my jalapeños
      Calamari and prosciutto
      I'm the king!

    Is how they decided to do this survey, apparently they saw an old painting of Stonehenge with all these other things around it. Then they decided to do this survey and found that the painting was right...

  • penthouse floor of a 100+ meter tall tower that was used to direct ancient spacecraft as they created crop circles.

  • Ahh, the Underhenge!

  • Some features were hidden away so the dwarves wouldn't trodden upon it.
  • OK - not an archaeologist here. But the new picture seems to be dangerously close to a wish-fulfilment fantasy based on 'expert' interpretation of patterns in the data - and I'd be interested to know just how universally accepted amongst other experts that interpretation is. Because if I learned one thing from watching "Time Team", it was how often the experts' interpretation of geophys data turned out to be quite different to what was found when the site was actually dug...

Sigmund Freud is alleged to have said that in the last analysis the entire field of psychology may reduce to biological electrochemistry.
