Watch NOVA “Secrets of Stonehenge” at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12 on Wisconsin Public Television.
Everyone loves an old wives’ tale, if only to feed our need for curiosity. Unfortunately, Big Foot and the Loch Ness Monster only have a few blurry pictures as evidence of their existence… Stonehenge and the Moai statues on Easter Island are actually there in plain view for the world to see.
What could be more intriguing than discovering the meaning and purpose behind a monument built ages ago by who knows who? Thanks to advancements in science and technology, mankind has managed to solve most of mysteries of the past, but it’s always exciting to explore the ones that remain.
I think the best part of these great mysteries is the opportunity to hear all of the different theories that have developed over the years. With no final answer, people are free to wonder and imagine any possibility that comes to mind. I mean really, who doesn’t enjoy the thought of aliens visiting earth long ago to help early humans build a bunch of random monuments?
