I don’t think so. The site may have been used to bury the wealthy, but I cannot see what’s in it for the workers to drag multi-ton blocks over miles of terrain to put them up.

I think the bodies and the stones are not related, imo.

Oh, the Stone Age intolerance. I’m offended and indignant. I’ll take this discrimination case to the court in Bedrock; twist, twist

St. Peter’s was/is also a graveyard (marterium) but that does not preclude it from being other things as well eg. church, pilgrimage destination etc. I would go so far as to say that most sacred architecture is multi-purpose.
Good read in this regard is Lindsey Jones’ Huermeneutics of Sacred Architecture.

Even the 1% of the stone age had to have their elaborate burials, the simple hole in the ground that the 99% had to settle for paid for Stone Henge.

I think the place was a centre for healing. The people who didn’t make it are probably buried about.
