Who built the Stonehenge monument? Analyzes of incineration remains revealed SECRET

Despite countless studies, the Stonehenge Neolithic Monument has revealed little secrets. Much of the remains of the people who built it were incinerated, but a former Oxford University student found out where the people who worked on building the structure came from.

Christopher Snoeck of the University of Oxford revealed that many of the workers came from the west of England, the source of the stones used to raise the monument. According to the AFP, some of the workers of those times, who probably helped transport Neoliths, were incinerated before they were buried.

Snoeck has discovered in the laboratory tests the presence of strontium, a hard element found in bones that resist temperatures up to 1,000 degrees Celsius. In fact, extreme heat seals and isolates the element even for hundreds of years. For researchers, analyzing human remains is difficult because incineration destroys much of organic matter, including DNA.

"But all the inorganic matter survives and contains a huge amount of information," Snoek said. By measuring the strontium traces, "the origin of the food they consume, especially the plants", coming from the forests of Wales can be assessed.

Plants absorb strontium from the soil, then the element reaches the human body and reflects the place where the plants grew. The researchers examined 25 people buried in the first phase of Stonehenge's history, around 3,000 BC. About 10 of them spent the last 10 years in different regions.
