Is the Stonehenge fake?

in #history4 years ago (edited)

The Stonehenge a monument that attracts a lot of tourists every year has a deep secret hidden from the public
The Stonehenge was said to be built around 2500BC
Carbon dating the stones have shown the stones to be from 3000BC
The stones are said to be from Preseli Hills, Pembrokeshire 225 kilometers away from the monument.
The stones that we see now are actually works of restoration done from 1952 as some of the stones were going to fall and it might have destroyed the monument so to prevent this from happening many restorations were done
These are the photos of the 1952 restoration.
