Animals were forced to haul heavy loads long distances.
Archaeologists from University College London have suggested that Stonehenge could be built with the use of cows.
This theory helps to explain how the huge stones from Wales were in Wiltshire, where the famous megalithic monument.
Archaeologists have been able to build this assumption on the basis of the study of the hooves of cattle who lived in the Neolithic period. Signs of damage of hoofs showed that the animals had dragged heavy loads over long distances.
“This discovery forces us to reconsider the current interpretation of the use of animals in prehistoric Europe,” writes the study’s lead author, Dr. Jane Gaastra.
