Stonehenge BBQ – A BBQ PIT For 25th Century BBQ Boss’s

So you thought you knew Stonehenge right? WRONG!

 

We all know that it’s a prehistoric monument located in Wiltshire England and that it’s one of the most famous sites in the world known for its remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks. What no one really knows is what it was for.

UNTIL NOW

Modern-day archaeologists are debating that the people who built Old Stoney were well known for their love of all things BBQ. In fact the people of Durrington Wall (only 2 short miles away) are believed (based on evidences found by archaeologists) to have loved to Rock the night away with feasts licked by the flame of a 25th Century barbecue. The Smithsonian backed this by agreeing that the evidence suggests huge feasts took place which would indicate that Stonehenge is actually a site for a community feast.

People located in the nearby town would chow down on Whole-Roasted Hog roasts and cheese during the 25th century BC Stonehenge BBQ, that’s according to a recent study published by the University of York. Dr Oliver Craig, reader in archaeological science at the University of York and lead Author of the above study is cited as stating “The inhabitants and many visitors to this site possessed a shared understanding of how foods should be prepared, consumed and disposed.” This makes me think that Stonehenge is actually BBQ PIT for a town of 25th century BBQ Boss’s.
