Situated in the English county of Wiltshire, Stonehenge is one of the most famous archaeological monuments in the world. It is also one of the most mysterious. The culture that made it left no written records behind, so, as Nigel Tufnel has said, “No one knows who they were, or what they were doing.” Sure, there are many hypotheses based upon actual evidence found at the site, but what about the idea—mooted by Eric Idle on the 1981 broadcast of “Steve Martin’s Best Show Ever”—that dinosaurs created Stonehenge? I’ll let the video speak for itself.
