New study reveals Stonehenge was ancient B&B

An iconic silhouette lying at the heart of the English countryside, Stonehenge holds a mystery which has baffled archaeologists and historians for thousands of years. Ideas about its purpose range from an astronomical observatory to a healing circle created by giants who brought the rocks from Ireland.

However, researchers working at AFU have come up with a new theory. New archaeological evidence uncovered at the site suggests that the mythic stones were actually used as a kind of prehistoric bed and breakfast.

The crucial item unearthed by the team was a stone tablet seemingly used as a primitive reservations calendar. Using their knowledge of ancient alphabets, the researchers were able to identify symbols signifying dates, numbers of visitors and even forms of payment.

Professor A. Foolson of AFU describes the discovery as ‘groundbreaking’ and stated, “A great deal more research is required to prove this theory categorically, but we strongly believe these discoveries will change the way we think about Stonehenge forever’.

What do you think? Just another theory or could the hospitality industry truly hold the key to Stonehenge?
