Archaeologists believed that there may be more treasures contained in the site. As a matter of fact, they are all set to carry out further investigations.

Moreover, they used a GPS drone, cameras, and a compass to check if the sundial is still functioning. Apparently, they also found that it can accurately determine the seasons.

Meanwhile, the discovered Stonehenge is compared to one of the world-famous Stonehenge in Wiltshire in South West England.

Giuseppe La Spina, one of the four friends who found the site said:

Making an archaeological discovery is in itself an important event. But to be part of one of the most sensational finds in recent years fills me with pride.

It is indeed a pride to be part of some discovery. The four friends are lucky enough to be part of something that they would never have dreamt of.
