Description

Discover the mysterious Stonehenge and marvel at the breathtaking atmosphere in this enigmatic site.

The great and ancient 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 built between about 3000 BC and 1600 BC. Each monument was a circular building, which was aligned to the sunrise at midsummer solstice.

There has always been a great deal of debate about what purpose Stonehenge served. Certainly it was the centre of a landscape full of prehistoric ceremonial structures. It was also an enormous amount of work and time. A great deal of effort and organization was required to transport the stones dozens, sometimes even hundreds of kilometers by land and water, and then to form and raise them. Only a highly developed society could have mustered the manpower and planning and construction skills necessary to build Stonehenge and its surrounding monuments.

The alignment of Stonehenge in relation to the rising and setting sun has always been one of the most remarkable features. Whether this was because its builders came from a culture of sun worshippers or - as some scholars have claimed - the circle and its banks were part of a huge 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 shaped the stones and formed the mortises and pegs that connected the supports to the lintels. With antlers and bones they dug the pits to hold the stones and built the benches and ditches that surrounded them.
