Ancient people suited feasts near Stonehenge - scientists


The group of scientists of Cardiff University and University College London analysed isotopes in remains of pigs which were found near Stonehenge, and defined that about 4.5 thousand years ago people of the Neolithic suited feasts on this place. As reports Naked science, to a monument people from all England gathered.

Near Stonehenge were found large bones which belonged to 131 pigs, according to researchers, animals were "the main course for a feast". The analysis of their remains would allow to learn who feasted at a monument: only locals or travelers from other regions.

Researchers analysed a ratio of isotopes of different elements, considering kinds of strontium, oxygen and sulfur which get different forms. It depends on geology, climate and proximity to the coast. Besides, scientists studied analysed isotopes of nitrogen and carbon to analyse a diet of animals.

according to scientists, to Stonehenge met people from all England. (About 4.5 thousand years ago) people went to era of the late Neolithic from a northeast part of the island, from the Western Wales and the Southern Scotland. It struck scientists as shows social community of residents of Britain in the Neolithic era. It should be noted that pigs cannot independently overcome long distances therefore it is necessary either to transport them, or to hammer and keep freshness of meat during the travel. Both demands certain technologies and skills.
