The large and old stone circle of Stonehenge is one of the wonders of the world. What visitors see today are the essential remains of the last in a series of such monuments erected between about 3000 BC and 1600 BC. Each monument was a circular building, oriented towards the sunrise at the midsummer solstice.
There has always been an intense debate about the purpose Stonehenge fulfilled. It was certainly the centre of a landscape full of prehistoric ceremonial structures. It was also an enormous amount of work and time. Great efforts and organisation were required to transport the stones by land and water for dozens, sometimes even hundreds of kilometres, and then to shape and raise them. Only a highly developed society could have provided the manpower and the planning and construction skills necessary to produce Stonehenge and its surrounding monuments.
Stonehenge's orientation towards the rising and setting sun has always been one of its most remarkable features. Whether this was due to the fact that its builders came from a culture of sun worshippers or, as some scholars claimed, the circle and its banks were part of a vast astronomical calendar remains a mystery. What cannot be denied is the ingenuity of the builders of Stonehenge. With only very simple tools at their disposal, they formed the stones and formed the mortises and cones that connected the supports with the falls. With antlers and bones they dug the pits to hold the stones and built the benches and trenches that enclosed them.
