(Natural News) The prehistoric monument Stonehenge is still largely mysterious to archaeologists and historians, and now it looks like the U.S. has a stone-based mystery of its own to solve.
Multiple sightings of stones underneath Lake Michigan have spurred researchers to explore the lake’s bed and analyze the rocks found there, and they found a very interesting formation that is drawing comparisons to Stonehenge. Although they are said to form a perfect geometric shape, they are not stacked or connected the way Stonehenge is.
Archaeologists say that prehistoric tribes roamed the Great Lakes area for thousands of years, although not much is known about them. Some of the first Native Americans to inhabit the area surrounding Lake Michigan are the Anishinaabe, and some of their descendants believe the stones were laid for sacred purposes.
