Stonehenge, Wiltshire

Stonehenge is a circle of ancient stones erected between 3000BC and 1,600BC. It is one of the most important prehistoric monument sites in Britain.

It was constructed in three phases and it has been estimated that this took more than 30 million hours of labour. The Bluestones and Sarsen stones were carried hundreds of miles to the Wiltshire site. Mystery surrounds the stone circle as to why it was built. Some think it was designed as a place to worship the sun, others believe it may have been a place of sacrifice.

Visitors are not permitted near the stones unless pre-arranged. Viewing is behind a fence that runs around the stone circle
