Watch: Ancient ‘Spanish Stonehenge’ Emerges From Drought-Hit Dam

NBC News published this video item, entitled “Watch: Ancient ‘Spanish Stonehenge’ Emerges From Drought-Hit Dam” – below is their description.

Spain’s worst drought in decades has unveiled the Dolmen of Guadalperal, a circle of dozens of megalithic stones believed to date back to 5,000 B.C. The ancient archaeological site, commonly known as the “Spanish Stonehenge,” was first discovered in 1926, but has only been visible four times since the area was flooded during a rural development project in 1963.
