    A “copy” of Stonehenge, discovered by Brazilian scientists, was filmed on video in the Amazon rainforest.

    According to the researchers, the ancient man-made structure erected the Amazon region was used for ritual functions. Scientists suggest that the tropical forests of South America still harbor many mysteries. These geoglyphs, large designs formed on the ground by landscape elements, appeared almost 2,000 years ago. The weight of some stone blocks exceeds 40 tones.
