Drought-hit dam reveals Spanish Stonehenge

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Climate change is lowering water levels around the world and revealing some surprising archaeological treasures. When a reservoir in central Spain dropped to just 28% of its capacity, a giant stone circle from about 5000 B.C. emerged.
