The paper asserts that these are important structures in history because of what they tell us about ancient civilizations.
From the Paper:"Stonehenge and The Great Pyramids are two of the most mysterious structures in the world. Even with everything that modern technology has learned about them, there still remains more questions than answers. While it can be seen that these works of art were very important to the people who built them, it is nearly impossible to interpret why exactly they were created. So much time and effort went into each of these objects that they must have had a very special significance for these ancient civilizations. Both of them used very heavy materials, which had to be moved great distances and lifted on high platforms. The amount of manual labor that went into these structures is unheard of by today's standards."
