The prehistoric stone circle and church were discovered as the country’s reservoirs reached 36% of normal due to the heat.
In Spain, a severe drought that led to a drop in water levels created a prehistoric stone circle and an 11th-century church. This was reported by The Guardian.
Spain’s reservoirs that supply water to towns and farms are less than 36% full, according to data from the Environment Ministry in August. In the west of the state, in the region of Extremadura, the receding waters of the Valdecañas reservoir have unearthed a prehistoric stone circle on an islet that was normally underwater.
Called the “Spanish Stonehenge”, a circle of dozens of megalithic stones was discovered by archaeologists in 1926, but the site was flooded in 1963 during the construction of a reservoir.
Also in the northeastern region of Catalonia, the ruins of an 11th-century church were found in the normally flooded village of Sant Roma de Sau, which was submerged in the 1960s when a dam was built nearby.
Earlier it was reported that forty archaeological objects were found on the territory of the Kotelevsky community of the Poltava region.
