Ancestor Worship at Stonehenge

Stonehenge is now thought to be a site of past ancestor worship.

It is believed to have begun as a Welsh tomb, until its relocation. Presumably the people living in Wales moved, took their ancestors with them.

I wonder if this new theory will dampen New Age religious celebrations at the tombs, since they tend to be more cosmopolitan.

“Where are the dead? The simple answer is Stonehenge, because what we hadn’t realised was that Stonehenge is the largest cemetery of the entire 3rd millennium BC in Britain,” added Prof Parker Pearson.

“Most of those remains are cremated. Just burnt fragments. There were several hundred people buried.”

Note: This is not a new theory, but it’s a recent article. Our betters would prefer we only talked of Stonehenge as astrological in nature.
