The idea that Stonehenge once served as an ancient solar calendar has seemingly been upended by a new examination of the popular hypothesis.

In response to Darvill's work, archaeoastronomy experts Juan Antonio Belmonte and Giulio Magli have published a new paper in which they reportedly contend that it is "based on a series of forced interpretations of the astronomical connections of the monument, as well as on debatable numerology and unsupported analogies."
