    I didn't choose aliens but I think that it's possible. The creation and mechanics of a lot of ancient monuments are still a huge mystery because a lot of them utilized concepts that were far ahead of their years.

    I can't see how you can describe stonehenge as pointless. It is a valuable link to our history, and is a site that should be preserved because it is now,(unfortunately) unique. You might as well say tear down the pyramids or bulldoze Aires rock so you can build on the ground.

    I agree. If you need flat land to build on, go to Australia, Sahara, Sibiria or Ankartis for christ sake. Sure, they may be uninhabitable, maybe hostile at times, but that is worth it if the only other choise is to destroy an ancient monument instead.

    Say NO to bulldozing. :D
    Let us all support the War on Bulldozing. :shake:

    I did. Honestly. One day I was bored and fiddling with rocks. The result is what you today call Stonehenge. ;)

    Definitely a lego set for giants as such. Upon consideration of this question I can honestly say that IMHO, it was most likely some kind of sport or game equipment for the giants that lived in history. Seriously.

    Perhaps set up for a game - or tournament - of marbles or some such.

    I think dominoes would be better. The way they are arranged reminds me of those dominoes that fall down and knock over the next.

    If that's true then whoever set up those dominoes did a really good job.

    But in case you vere all wondering, I voted alien.
