Annapolis and Severna Park were outnumbered by Prince George's County schools in yesterday's Class 4A-3A East Regional Championships at the 5th Regiment Armory, but that didn't stop the Panthers or the Falcons from doing what they set out to -- qualify for states.Neither team threatened to claim a team title, but both schools were well-represented in individual events."I was happy we got thrown in this region, and I thought we would fare well here, because Prince George's County traditionally doesn't have great distance runners from the 800 on up," said Falcons coach Ed Purpura.

At least part of the mystery of Stonehenge may have now been solved: It was from the beginning a monument to the dead. New radiocarbon dates from human cremation burials in and around the brooding stones on Salisbury Plain in England indicate that the site was used as a cemetery from 3000 B.C. well into its zenith around 2500 B.C., British archaeologists reported yesterday. What appeared to be the head of a stone mace, a symbol of authority, was found with one of the burials, the archaeologists said, indicating that this was probably a cemetery for the ruling dynasty responsible for erecting Stonehenge.
