New Evidence Says Stonehenge Was A Massive Solar Calendar Inspired By Egyptian Sun Cults
Stunning new research claims to have finally uncovered the true purpose of Stonehenge, saying it was a massive solar calendar that tracked the days of the year with astonishing precision.

When the now-missing stones were in place, Stonehenge featured 30 of its enormous sarcens, which would align with the approximate number of days in a month. Meanwhile, the inner and outer stones were so sophisticated in their placement that they accounted for the “extra” days that are now part of our leap year system.

But it would take researchers until now to reveal the secrets of one unique set of remains — a 5,300-year-old skull that holds evidence of the earliest ear surgery in human history.
