Stonehenge is more British than fish and chips, Cornish pasties and queuing in military fashion. However, science has (once again) proved otherwise.
Researchers have found that DNA tests carried out on the workers who built the structure were in fact from Turkey (or what is now Turkey).
So the builders were immigrants, and Twitter had some comments on the matter…
DNA shows migrants who arrived in Britain around 6,000 years ago constructed the world’s most famous prehistoric monument https://t.co/f1gMCDaWSw

And here came the Tweets, have a read, they are brilliant.
Absolutely buzzed to find out that Stonehenge was built by Turks, for Turks. Look forward to reclaiming Somerset’s largest mangal pit with my Turkish brethren and enjoying some tasty dolmades and lamb sis. Everyone welcome except Greeks https://t.co/7Wm5g2IKuu

Of course Stonehenge was built by immigrants to Britain, otherwise today it’d still just be a cordoned off area with a few stone traffic cones and a carved in slate promise that work would be finished by next century.

Kippers & ethnonationalists will hate the discovery that Stonehenge was basically built by immigrants from Turkeyhttps://t.co/s3wPMhTCnQ

Typical. Immigrants may have built Stonehenge, but it just proves they knew nothing about England, or they wouldn’t have put it so close to the A303, where the traffic is always terrible.

Proof that I was right to warn of the dangers of Turkish immigrants coming over here and taking our jobs. They’ve got form.https://t.co/kRjYHzfO3O
