Did Stonehenge originally have Walls, a Roof and a Balcony?

It’s not often I get this excited about a new alternative theory but the one I’m discussing in today’s video is absolutely fantastic, a real game changer, and it concerns the enigmatic site of Stonehenge.

As we know, Stonehenge is one of the world’s most famous monuments and people have used the stones to measure certain astronomical alignments, to see if the layout has a connection to the sun, moon and stars, and on the summer and winter solstices, many flock from all over, standing amongst the giant sarsen stones and imagine what it was like for the ancient Britons more than 4,000 years ago.


But most people take it for granted that this was always just a stone monument – that this was always the way it looked. There is an assumption that the stones were symbolic and ritualistic and people rarely consider the idea that what we are actually looking at is the stone framework or skeleton of a large, enclosed structure complete with a roof.


That's the theory by landscape architect, Sarah Ewbank, who believes Stonehenge was once a spectacular thatched building, and all we can see today are the ruins.
