FUTURE generations will walk around the Stonehenge A303 road tunnel wondering why it was constructed, it has been confirmed.
Tourists in 3228AD will walk the length of the planned 1.2 mile road tunnel under the stones marvelling at the effort primitive humans made to build it, but only able to guess at its mysterious purpose.
Future historian Nikki Hollis said: “We believe, after extensive archaeological work, it was connected with the black tarmac ‘ley lines’ criss-crossing ‘England’ far below sea level.
“But ultimately, we believe the only reason they would go to such extraordinary lengths to build something so awe-inspiring but useless is religion.
“It was a spiritual thing, probably involving human sacrifices and sun gods.”
She added: “We come down to the tunnel at solstice and play drums, drink draughts of their mystical ‘prosecco’ and feel connected to our pagan past.
“I wish they’d do something to cover that henge up top though. It’s ugly.”
