it's an easy leap to make when you've got a modest understanding of the way ancient peoples developed into civilizations.
people used to live in family groups and wander from place to place
etc. they hunted and gathered from the wild
people eventually settled into permanent residences. they started to farm, and they began to write, and they developed culture. nearly universal to ancient civilizations was religiousness or spirituality.
what was stone henge?
