Mystery Stonehenge may now finally be resolved.
New research says that archaeologist says that the unusual stone pillars in the UK were used as a crematorium.
In 1920, the archaeologist William Howl discovered remains of cremated bones near Stonehenge in several holes that were known as Aubrey holes. He held that he found the remains of about 59 people. However, at that time the bones were not considered important discovery, so they were buried together in one of the holes.
Today, researchers have again begun to explore the remains of at least 27 adults and some younger, using radiocarbon analysis. It was discovered that these people were buried over a period of 500 years, from 3100 to 2600 BC.
As claimed by Mike Parker, a professor at the University of London, the change in location indicates that there is a change in the cultural significance of Stonehenge at the time.
So Stonehenge was no longer a crematorium, but a place where people at that time were paying an honor to their ancestors.
Many hope that Stonehenge becomes less and less mysterious and that soon will know a lot more about this legendary place
