I think that we can presume thatjust about everywhere throughout
Europe atleast were there existed a common culture of cattle raising and forest soils,that something like this was available to every tribe. We have already seen plenty of examples ofwood henges and a turf henge is no departure at all.
Obviously used as a ceremonial siteto confirm the solstices and plausibly other important dates to an agriculturalcommunity, a cycle of gatherings would readily provide the workforce tomaintain and rebuild such sites.
At least no one is challenging theastronomical significance of Stonehenge anymore when we keep finding similarstructures all over
Europe with the exact samealignments. There are obviously a lotmore as yet undiscovered. At least nowwe know to check the soils.
