'Fact Or Faked: Paranormal Files': Could Stonehenge Have Been Built By Ancient Man?

The team on "Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files" (Tue., 9 p.m. ET on Syfy) examined one of the world's oldest mysteries: Stonehenge. They wanted to take on the questions of whether or not ancient man could have possibly moved the massive stone pieces into position on the structure.

As part of their investigation, they visited a man in Michigan who believed there was one method ancient man could have used to build a structure like Stonehenge. He had a design of some basic machinery that could have been constructed in those times using weight and counterweight.

The team constructed a machine based on those principles, and found that they could build a very similar base structure to the Stonehenge design. They moved three massive stones into the classic arch position in less than a single day. If ancient man employed any kind of similar methods, they would have been more than capable of moving the massive stones into place at Stonehenge.

Find out what they tackle next on "Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files," Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Syfy.
