An 'African Stonehenge' discovered in Tunisia

An ancient megalithic site, similar for its sheer size to the famous Stonehenge complex, has been recently discovered in Africa by a team of Italian archaeologists. According to an article published by "Archeologia Viva" magazine, a team of environmental scientists from the L'Aquila University found a huge megalithic site in Tunisia. The site consists of 18 dolmens made with stone slabs up to 3 tons in weight and surrounded by megalithic walls, with a series of stone circles and an impressive stone row with 30 standing stones aligned to the East-West axis. The megalithic site is considered the largest ever found in Africa.
