Stonehenge was ancient sex symbol
- The Observer | UK News | The vagina monoliths: Stonehenge was ancient sex symbol: "Stonehenge has dominated the Wiltshire landscape for more than 4,000 years and is one of the world's most important heritage sites, but its purpose has remained a mystery.
Now a University of British Columbia researcher who has investigated the great prehistoric monument for several years has announced he has uncovered its true meaning: it is a giant fertility symbol, constructed in the shape of the female sexual organ."
Imagine the scenario:
You're 19 years old, in your second year at Stone Henge Poly. You and your mates go out for a few pints of mead. On the way home, after mooning some passers-by, you come up with an idea.
"Eh, Ethelred, " [they had funny names back then], you whisper, "See them rocks over there? Let's construct a giant representation of a female sexual organ out of 'em!". [Though I imagine that's not the exact wording].
