Universally applicable explanations

Archaeology (well, pop-archaeology at least, which is the only sort I know) can categorise incomprehensible finds into the catch-all 'ritual purposes'. Palaeozoology has an analogous classification of implausible appendages as being for 'mate selection'. What if we've gotten these the wrong way round, and stegosauruses were mobile henges, perhaps gathering at each equinox to align themselves?

Conversely, I suppose, maybe prehistoric people thought there was nothing hotter than someone playing giant stone jenga.
