Nope, Stonehenge isn't an ancient calendar after all, scientists say

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in Wiltshire, England, and is estimated to be around 5,000 years old.

For many years, it was believed that the stones were positioned in a way that allowed

the ancient people who built the monument to track the movements of the sun and moon,

and therefore keep a calendar. However, the new study used modern archaeological methods to examine the site,

including ground-penetrating radar and 3D laser scanning, and found no evidence to support this theory.

Instead, the researchers suggest that Stonehenge was used for a variety of ceremonial

and ritual purposes, and that the site's true purpose may never be fully understood.
