Study finds Stonehenge might have been an ancient calculator
The mystery behind the fascinating standing circle of Stonehenge has intrigued scientists and tourists alike for ages.
But In a new study, researchers believe that Stonehenge may have been an "ancient calculator" used to track the movements of the sun, moon and stars thousands of years ago.
Australian Scientists compared the ancient ruins to those of other stone structures in the UK and found the stones were placed in relation to celestial bodies.

They say the stones' positions display ancient Britons' strong connection with the environment and how important it was to them.
Beyond the link to the sun and moon there were also comparisons with the horizons and landscape.
The researchers assert that quote "Nobody before this has ever statistically determined that a single stone circle was constructed with astronomical phenomena in mind."
