Stonehenge: De-Mystified?

Having been long fascinated by Stonehenge this latest pronouncement of Stone as a burial ground is fascinating but at the same time deflating. Why deflating? Being very much into the science fiction genre, particularly the time travel series, the thought that Stonehenge could be a time travel portal has always been at the back of my mind.

From Star Trek Episode 28 (The City On the Edge Of Forever) that uses a time portal that very much reminded me of Stonehenge to Arthur Pendragon (King Arthur)-related books to historical fiction books about England, Stonehenge featured prominently on books and stories.

Sample news articles about the latest on Stonehenge can be read at:
