The Stonehenge skeleton of a young teenager buried near the ancient, mysterious site of Stonehenge is believed to be from the Mediterranean. The young teenager had a necklace of amber stones around his neck. The find lends credence to the belief that ancient people believed in the importance and mystical powers of ancient site.
"The teen â€” dubbed 'The Boy with the Amber Necklace' because he was unearthed with a cluster of amber beads around his neck â€” is one of several sets of foreign remains found around the ancient ring of imposing stones, whose exact purpose remains unknown," according to Yahoo News. The carbon dating of the skeleton is 1550 B.C.
The importance of the find is based on the fact that amber stones are not found near Britain. However,Â that conclusion is a big jump from a necklace to an ancient boy'sÂ origin. How scientific is this good guess? It may very well be that the boy was from a wealthy Mediterranean family, but it may be equally true that a young boy was gifted the necklace, or that he even stole the necklace and was killed.
There are so many possibilities that to conclude the origin of the skeleton from an amber necklace sounds more like best guess than science. Do you believe in this kind of science as fact, or do you think the Stonehenge skeleton may be just a skeleton?
