Wouldn't surprise me since they weren't distracted by being on their damn smartphone all the time.

Add to that the fact I saw a TV programme explaining how this was done (using the river Avon and 'stone highways') at least two or more years ago. This is not new news.

New research has indicated that the huge stones were transported over both land and water.

I used to wonder what made the Stonehenge bluestones that were quarried in Prescelly in Wales so important that they were man-handled over 100 miles to the Salisbury Plain by the builders of that monument. The thinking used to be that the megalithic builders considered that the stones themselves had magical properties, but it now appears that they were part of an already existing local Welsh monument that was important enough to warrant disassembly and relocation to Stonehenge. I think Geoffrey of Monmouth related a folktale with echoes of this undertaking when he recorded that Stonehenge was originally a giant stone circle in Ireland that was taken by British invaders and magically reerected in Wiltshire.
