Rocking Out

Experts in England have concluded that Stonehenge once attracted pilgrims. No, not the kind that dressed funny and ate turkey at Thanksgiving, but people from all over Europe who would make pilgrimages to the ancient site. Archeologists believe that these travelers were drawn to Stonehenge for its perceived healing powers. They base their theory on excavations around the site that revealed an unusual number of skeletons, many of which bore signs of illness, injury, or distress.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but shouldn't all those dead people lying around been a subtle clue that maybe Stonehenge did NOT have healing powers?
