    "Spain's Stonehenge" now visible again after a drought



    See:
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencet...reservoir.html"

    'Spanish Stonehenge' revealed: 5,000-year-old megalithic temple is exposed at the bottom of a barren reservoir after more than 50 years underwater"


    "A 5,000-year-old monument has reappeared in Spain after being submerged at the bottom of a reservoir for 50 years. The megalithic site features 144 granite blocks which stand more than six-foot tall and has been dubbed 'Spanish Stonehenge'.
    Its similarity to the UNESCO World heritage site in Wiltshire is striking, but the Iberian version is made of smaller rocks.
    It was thought to be condemned to the history books in the 1960s when a Spanish general ordered the construction of a hydroelectric dam in Peraleda de la Mata, near Cáceres in Extremadura...before its rediscovery and subsequent demise, it is thought the stones would have centred around a central chamber for sun worship."

    These rocks are six feet high and the ones at Stonehenge are thirty feet high, but the concept seems to be the same.

    most atlantic mega monuments, except the dolmens, were made from earthen walls and dikes
    and they all had the same patterns

    stonehenge was also an earthen henge before it became stonehenge
