'Stonehenge's secret revealed at last': Ice Age man was drawn to nearby pools which never froze over
* Warm spring is just walking distance from the stones
* They explain why mesolithic settlers were in the area
* Post ice-age wildlife would have flocked to the water

The reason for the stone monument's location has remained one of the great unsolved mysteries of British prehistory, with no one theory accepted as correct.
