Re: Myths, truths and theories - Stonehenge

You have to ask...how the hell did they do it?

Very carefully ...

I have one of those stone hammers that were typically used to shape the so-called mortice and tenon joints at Stonehenge and - frankly - just the idea of shaping stones with one of them is just as amazing as moving the stones there in the first place.

Skara brae huts had lintels, over the cupboards, and the old explanation for the inspiration behind the trilithons was Cretan influence. The axehead carvings were usually given as supporting evidence.
