Build it and they will come

Oxygen isotope analysis spots some Welshmen among remains found at Boscombe Down near Stonehenge.

The finding, which comes just before Sunday's summer solstice, not only sheds light on Stonehenge's origins, but also provides clues to prehistoric migration patterns within Europe following the Stone Age, which was the earliest known period in human culture.

This Discovery Channel article reports asks "Stonehenge: Built by Welshmen?" At 2300 years old, however, this makes them tourists at - rather than builders of - the ancient monument.

And then... Contemporary Stonehenge at dawn. Lovely.
