image for Stonehenge is not one of Seven Wonders - Just a Pile of Old Rocks
Stonehenge- nothing much to look at really.

In a surprise twist Stonehenge, the oldest site known to man was not classed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. A panel of experts has dismissed the ancient structure as "just a pile of old rocks."

As the final list of Seven Wonders was whittled down from 21 to just 7, Stonehenge, which was created in approximately 3100 BC, and used for ancient sacrifice and astrology lost out to some relatively modern structures.

The vast heavy stones, which were hauled by primitive ape-men from Wales to Wiltshire using only ape-power and wooden logs across ancient ley-lines and then set erect in huge pits, again using only primitively constructed A-frames and dandelion and burdock knotted ropes. The top stones were then expertly dove-tailed into place by our ape like ancestors, creating a vast circle on Avebury plain.

Yet this feat of human engineering which has stayed in place longer than the original seven wonders of the world was not good enough for todays pernickety judges, who stressed that any structure that did not charge admission was not classy enough to be included in the final list of Seven Wonders.

One judge said earlier today,"The trouble is, it's so old that no-one actually knows what it was for, it could've been a car park for all we know."
