Who built the Durrington Walls and Why?

Yet another megalithic monument site has been found recently, this time in England not far from the ever-controversial Stonehenge site.

Who built the monument and why it was built remains a mystery. How it was built is an even greater mystery. Of course, Ancient Aliens theory rears its pointy, elongated head…

21st Century Wire has the details:

Just one mile from the world-famous Stonehenge site, archaeologists have discovered a new, larger monument they are calling The Durrington Walls.

The monument was constructed around 4,500 years ago and scientists believe it was used for religious ceremonies or solstice rituals.

Around 90, 15ft long stones have been located with ground-penetrating radar and are arranged in a mile wide pattern; making it the largest such site in the UK.

Professor Vince Gaffney of the University of Bradford said “We don’t think there’s anything quite like this anywhere else in the world. This is completely new and the scale is extraordinary“.
