Stonehenge is part of something bigger

The Mayan ruins are pretty cool because there are so many of them that have been buried beneath hills that grew up over them.  You never know what you will find under any hill in the region.  It would be a great location for a story.

But, what if you love the intrigue and ancient culture angle, but would prefer for the rain to be cold instead of warm.

A settlement was recently found around Stonehenge.  They think this helps prove that Stonehenge was actually part of a bigger set of religious sites.

I might have forgotten to mention, but the temple that we saw in Belize was also part of a bigger religious site.  There were four sites that formed a square around the site we were at.  The other sites were about 7 to 15 miles away.  That is a pretty big framework.

So, this brings up a couple interesting ideas.  How similar are these religious constructs?  Is it possible that the people that developed the Stonehenge system also happened to build a multi mile spanning religious thing?

If so, is it just chance that such similar concepts popped up so far apart?  Or did the people building them have communication with the people on the other side of the world?  Or are all these micro sites that are being found to be connected really part of an even bigger system that covers the entire planet.  Maybe the Egyptian pyramids, Stonehenge, the Mayan pyramids, and even those crazy Easter Island things are all part of some really neat global thing that aliens, or Atlanteans, or even just normal people created.

Who knows what you characters will find if they take a shovel into their back yards?
