Some interesting info about our favourite holy place. I love that paganism is cool with science, I think this stuff is fascinating.

From reading it, my first thought isn't "burial ground" but much more "sacrifices dedicated to it's ancient purpose".

Perhaps it's just me though. However, I do have this truely odd belief that it was used (at least partially) to allow contact with the dead on certain nights of the year, so adding sacrifices to building it makes sense... technically so does burial ground, but, well for some reason the second thought simply seems to make more sense to me.

Just my thoughts though...

Good thoughts though. I love history because it is one thing that will always remain a mystery to us.
